Steam is the all-powerful, encompassing game launcher on PC. Since its introduction to the community over two decades ago, Steam has become the de facto place to play games, even amongst competition from Microsoft, Epic Games Store, and more. With over 100,000 games on Steam, there's bound to be a few sales.

I remember my first dedicated gaming PC back in 2012. The DayZ mod was all the rage, and I had to play it. I remember the download alone would take over three days, but I didn't care; I had to play. With Steam discounts, the base game for the DayZ mod, Arma 2, was like ten bucks!

Steam was the go-to place if you were looking for the deal of the century, years ago, at least. While the deals may not be as jaw-dropping as they were in the past, Steam continues to offer excellent sales from time to time. And the cherry on top? There's a plethora of third-party sites that sell Steam keys that still offer deals of yore. Let's dive into this week's top deals.

A game that's become a personal favorite of mine recently, Fallout 76 is at an incredibly low price point on CDKeys. Between the Xbox and PC versions, I've spent almost 80 hours over the last two months diving into the world of Appalachia, and I recommend others start doing the same today!

The Final Shape is currently being heralded as the greatest expansion ever seen in Destiny's history. In fact, it would be considered the most significant DLC released this year if it wasn't for the imminent domination of the Shadow of the Erdtree. I've heard so many good things that I even picked up a copy myself, and I haven't played Destiny 2 since 2019!

It's here, the expansion to 2022's Game of the Year Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree.

I stumbled upon this game on Steam's top-seller list, and surprisingly, it's the fifth highest-grossing game when excluding the free-to-play ones. Crime Boss features a star-studded cast, including Michael Madsen, Chuck Norris, Danny Trejo, Danny Glover, Michael Rooker, Kim Basinger, Vanilla Ice, and Damion Poitier. Although it didn't gain immediate traction, its release on Steam seems to have garnered some positive reviews, currently standing at 80%.

Notable entry - Grand Theft Auto V

I say notable because this isn't a Steam code. Rather, it's a Rockstar code, but It's Grand Theft Auto 5, it's the same game today as it was a decade ago. Doesn't matter where you play it. Except, now you can do even more crazy stuff online, including giving your hand at something like FiveM, a popular mod service online. If you're wondering why everyone is going crazy waiting for the release of Grand Theft Auto 6, then there's no better place to start, especially for $12.
