All good things come to an end, and it was the turn of the Steam Summer Sale earlier this week. For 12 glorious days there’s been thousands and thousands of games discounted. The stats show sales were up nearly 50% year on year, with more than $236 million spent on games.

Steam’s not alone in having crazy sales either of course. Since Steam kicked off twelve years ago practically hundreds have digital stores have popped up trying to sell you their wares. The likes of Green Man Gaming, Origin, FunStock and even G2A and CDKeys have some massive summer sales.

Now onto the important bit, what exactly did you buy? Was the Steam Summer Sale a big spender for you, or was there not much that took your fancy?

And if Steam’s no longer good enough value for you, where else do you look for your gaming bargains? Let us know!

I had a bit of a quiet one this year I have to admit. The Witcher 3 is still swallowing up enough of my time that there's barely any room for anything else. Don't worry though Steam, I'm coming for you when the Winter Sale hits.

Man dragons dogma is suppose to be awesome! You should check Angry Joe's Review. He gives it a 7/10 and said he would have rated it higher but for 3 things. Those things have all been fixed now! He REALLY likes the boss fights.

I planned getting the ROTR + JC3 bundle, but dropped the plan, would rather go for DX: Mandkind divided(anno its not released and no reviews, but its bound to be good).... I wonder why DX: Mandkind divided aint in "MOST POPULAR GAMES" list @homepage.

Black Mesa, Banished, Tomb Raider: Underworld. I was away on holiday and only had a little bit of money on my account, rest was bought due to card sales. But tbh nothing really interested me hugely this time around.

I only got the Blood for the Blood God DLC for Total War: Warhammer and it wasn't even on sale, so technically, I got nothing out of the summer sales.
I've got way too many games already I still have to finish, and not enough time to do so. Still not bored with Warhammer, and when I do get bored with it, I still have games like Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 to finish. It's been so long I've played Witcher 3 I might as well start over because I haven't the foggiest what I was doing or where I am in the story.

Yeah man. I was waiting to start my emp campaign until that DLC came out. Just finished the campaign. I like some of the changes they made to how the chaos attacks as well. There are two low level warrior of chaos incursions before the mac daddies show up.
