Steam 2018 Winter Sale: Best Games to Buy on a Budget

The most exciting time of year for PC players has finally come, the Steam Winter Sale is here. Every company, from Epic Games to CD Projekt Red, has tried to make their own online storefront, but only Valve has the keys to the almighty discount store for dozens of games. If you've been dying to try out a few new games and don't want to break the bank, this is the perfect opportunity. More games will be rolled out as the week goes on, so if you don't see anything you like now, just wait.

There is also the Steam Awards, which players can cast their votes for. If you think God of War didn't deserve Game of the Year at the Game Awards, this is your chance to have your voice heard. Voting closes Jan. 3, so make sure you get in your votes now.

Some of the best games from 2018 are on the list with massive price cuts. You can get the newly released Assassin's Creed Odyssey for $29.99, slashing the price in half. The prequel to the Greek adventure, Origins, is also on sale for $19.79. There's also my editor's favorite game of the year, Yakuza 0, available for $13.39.

Here are a few more hidden gems that are currently available on the store.

Battlerite Royale- $9.99 (50 percent off)

Portal 2 - $1.99 (80 percent off)

Jurassic World: Evolution- $13.74 (75 percent off)
