Prepare thy wallet, fellow PC gamers.  It’s that glorious time of year we all look forward to – the annual Steam Summer Sale!

The festivities take place June 11th through June 21st with a fresh helping of featured deals, flash sales and community choice selections each day.  For those new to Steam, the Summer Sale is arguably the best time of the year to stock up on PC games. It’s not uncommon to see discounts of 75% on a slew of titles!

Day one standouts include Tales from the Borderlands for $11.99, X-COM: Complete Pack for $7.49, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number for $10.04, Metro Redux Bundle for $9.99, and Fez for $1.99.  Pretty much the entire Steam catalog is on sale though, so be sure to check out everything on your wishlist!

In the past, community choice sales were determined by putting a selection of games through a simple voting process. This year, it’s a bit different. The Monster Summer Game has the community working together to kill monsters by clicking mouse buttons, or by letting an autofire ability do the work. Players can level up and buy upgrades, but the enemies also get tougher as you advance. The objective is to achieve goals and milestones that unlock community deals.

PRO TIP: If a game is a featured deal, flash sale or community choice, it’s a safe bet the price will not go any lower for the duration of the sale. That’s your cue to click the “add to cart” button!

What games are you hoping to pick up during this year’s Steam Summer Sale?  Let us know in the comments!
