Game of the Year, At a Discount

If you’ve got a few bucks left, you can go wild during the Steam sale this holiday season. The biggest video game sale of the year is the perfect opportunity for you to score some great deals at oh so low prices. But how about some quality over quantity? Here are five games that either won or were nominated for a game award this year.

Wolfenstein II (-50%)

A lot of gamers who are 30+ years old have a special place for Wolfenstein in their heart. The original Wolfenstein was one of the first 3d shooters, even though 3d was about as flat as a pancake back then.

Wolfenstein II is quite a different game from the original and isn’t flat at all. Centered around an insurrection in the conquered United States, it is action-packed and will scare the hell out of little children. Play at your peril.

Winner: Best Action Game

Cuphead (-15%)

You might think platformers are gone the way of the dodo a long time ago. You’d also be quite wrong. Gone are the days of Mario but boy howdy are platformers getting bigger and better every year. Personally, I love the Trine-series and there are many indie games that know exactly how to scratch that old skool itch. Think Super Meatboy, Guacamelee and now… Cuphead.

The game has been a smash hit and is famous for its provocative artistic style. Giving you both an old and a new feel at the same time. Add to that the difficulty and you get why this game has sold over a million copies.

Winner: Art Direction

Injustice 2 (-30%)

Did you enjoy Mortal Combat way back when? Just think what you can do with superheroes. It might be a rather dark game, but being able to play a fighting game with Batman and Superman is just this side of awesome.

Combine that with beautiful looking levels and the difficulty and you got a game that wil keep you busy for quite some amount of hours.

Winner: Art Direction

Prey (-50%)

After a rather bumpy start with game breaking bugs, Prey seems to take away a lot of appreciation from the critics. Especially the level design is singled out as being a high point of the game.

Players Unknown’s Battlegrounds (No Discount)

Nobody can get around this title even though you don’t get a discount this Steam Sale. It won a game award for the best multiplayer game and was nominated for game of the year and best ongoing game. PUbG, as it is called for short, has just introduced its second map and is a multiplayer behemoth and sold an amazing 24 million copies on Steam alone.

If you are unfamiliar with PUBG is a battle royale shooter. Basically, it’s the Hunger Games with a little less JLaw in it. You are dropped into a level with 79 other players with nothing but the clothes on your back. You have to scrounge for weapons and food and whoever survives… wins.

Winner: Best Multiplayer Game
