Steam’s 2017 Autumn Sale is now underway all through next Tuesday, Nov. 28. It packs the usual heavy discounts on more than 5,000 titles, encapsulating some of the biggest franchises in PC gaming.
A large number of top tier titles are up for grabs this week and with such a vast array of choices, some players are naturally gonna feel a tad bit overwhelmed. But fear not fellow solider as we’re here to provide some great tips on sorting though the masses as well as a decent helping of standout products from mainstream franchises to unknown indies.
First off, focus on the games up on your wish-list as these are the titles you personally picked to keep an eye out for. On this sale, try purchasing from your wish-list while adding games that catch your eye to your it for the next time a big sale rolls around (which isn’t too far off). Another solid strategy is to fix a spending limit from the get-go and then trying to maximize the amount of games you can get within that limit. It creates a game in and of itself like a round of Dr. Mario except with your hard earned cash rather than fictional medicine. It provides a good way to get the most out of sale while keeping costs down. The third and final tip is to think it over before purchasing. Try not to buy stuff on an impulse only to have it forever wallow in the depth of your steam library as well as your ever growing backlog. Really consider whether you want a game or not before taking the plunge, your wallet will most definitely thank you for your consideration.
