PC games Winter Sale is upon us! From $28 GTAV at GMG to $20 Mad Max at Steam Store, we break it all down below.
Steam, you’ve done it again. Not only are there thousands of PC gaming discounts from you, but the sale has made other PC game retailers boost discounts on their own sites to compete. We’ll cut to the chase: Steam has a huge selection of games and we’ve picked out some of the better deals (lowest historic pricing and popular titles). Having said that, several popular titles are not discounted on Steam, including Rocket League, which took a hefty 52% cut to $28 at GMG today in its Winter Sale.
Check out the lists below and let us know if we missed any uber hot deals – we think we’ve posted the best but you can only curate so many. Steam has the largest database of deals, but every deal we’ve posted from other retailers beats pricing at the Steam Store, hence their appearance below.
GMG Winter Sale
GMG’s Winter Sale is the largest of the non-Steam Store Winter Sales, with about 200 titles discounted up to 92% off list price. To get the best deals, you’ll have to use a coupon code which stacks up an additional 20% savings. New lows on several titles like Fallout 4, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, Cities: Skylines, and Total War: Attila – making it a worthy sale to investigate. All titles listed below activate on Steam unless otherwise noted.

Combined, all the currently running Winter Sales would make a list of thousands of games. We’ve run through all the deals, and the 48 listed above are the ones we think are at the best price. Expect this list to get updated through New Year as all the retailers above are known to give a surprise deal or two through their respective sales period.
As mentioned above, if you spot something worthy from Steam and company’s Winter Sale not listed above, let us know and we’ll investigate and add 🙂
