Weekend PC Download Deals for Dec. 21: Steam Winter Sale

Merry Christmas, PC owners! Steam is hosting its biggest sale of the year, with a handful of PC digital gaming retailers following suit.


Merry Christmas, everyone! It's time to celebrate that time of year by filling your stocking with new games. And Steam has more gifts than Santa Claus this year, offering up discounts on thousands of games. We listed as many as we could here, but there are far, far more to be found on Steam's service, so brew some coffee and get to browsing.

Meanwhile, there are several other major retailers also hosting huge sales. Blizzard is offering up deals on all of its major franchises, including the Activision-owned properties. World of Warcraft players may want to pick up a mount while they're all half-off. Also, Humble Bundle is offering up an amazing Sonic the Hedgehog bundle, offering up some of Sonic's better games, along with the option to grab both Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces for $15. Meanwhile GOG.com, Green Man Gaming, and Fanatical are all hosting massive sales, some with coupon codes to stack onto the pile.

All this, plus LEGO: Lord of the Rings, free from the Humble Store! Merry Christmas!

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
