Our top picks from the Steam autumn sale> NAG

the Steam fall sale is in full swing and you have just a few days left to grab some great games to keep you busy this December. To help you decide which games to buy, we’ve compiled a list of our top picks from this month’s sales.

What is your recommendation for the games on sale? Let us know in the comments below.

Dying Light Enhanced Edition
Get it on Steam
Selected by Regardt

One of the best open world zombie games I’ve ever played is Dying Light and even though Dying Light 2 is around the corner, the first game is still as great as ever. Especially when you consider that you can get the first game and some or all of the expansions for a bargain price in the fall sale. From climbing buildings with fancy parkour to looting and crafting weapons, this game will get on your nerves as you try to outrun the hordes of the undead. It’s an awesome game and one that should be in your collection.

Psychonauts 2
Get it on Steam
Selected by Arielle

One of the things that really made Psychonauts 2 special is how lovingly Double Fine built on the first game instead of just throwing it away and starting over all those years later. Playing Psychonauts 2 feels new and fresh while still staying true to the game loved by many, for better or for worse. It’s hard to talk about Psychonauts 2 because at the end of the day it is a game that shouldn’t be read or looked at, it should be played.

If you’re still puke on the fence at the end of this whole word, there’s a character voiced by Jack Black and it’s every bit as hilarious as you can imagine, and though there’s no doubt a lot to be said for the appeal The bottom line of nostalgia is that Psychonauts 2 is simply a great game – whether you’re a returning player or first time discovering the series.

Farcry 3
Get it on Steam

It all starts with a fun parachute jump with a group of your friends over a remote island, far from civilization, what could go wrong? “See, mate, we’re not the savages, we’re the shepherds“Said an Australian once. Farcry 3 is just the thing for me for an FPS game, raw fun, open world, great storyline, sneaky kills and OMG, I just wore my pants. Obisoft released this game in 2012 and if it isn’t part of your game collection, WTF, get it now for just fifty dollars, buddy, FIFTY Smackers. That’s less than a lager on the local slope!

Cyberpunk 2077
Get it on Steam
Chosen by Lukas
Cyberpunk 2077 is on sale right now, and in my opinion, unlike the majority, I loved the game in its entirety and played it through and through multiple times and even loved it for soundtracks, characters, and plot. If you didn’t believe in it a lot in the beginning or don’t want to spend a lot of money on the game, get it now. Definitely worth it in my opinion, and I can’t wait for the next-gen version to come out and make me cry like the day I finished the game.

Dream designer
Get it on Steam
Selected by Arielle

If I ever lose my memory, I want someone to let me play Dreamscaper so I can experience it again for the first time.

Dreamscaper is one of the most relaxing and brutal experiences I’ve had in a game in a long time. The graphics, character design, dialogue, and music all go so well with the roguelike gameplay. They say “Music Hath Charms to Soothe the Savage Beast” and Dreamscaper proves that is true. No matter how often I had to restart a run or how difficult (impossible to read) I found a boss fight, I was always kind of calm and relaxed. And coming from someone who is 90% stressful says a lot.

Nowadays it takes me a lot to sacrifice my sleep to willingly play a single player game. Not that I find multiplayer games any better, but friends come with friends and friends come peer pressure, my only real weakness. So when I tell you that on a Saturday, my day of sleep, I woke up at dawn and all I wanted to do was rush out of bed, not even take a break for a coffee, and back to Dreamscaper to jump, you know it’s special.

eternal downfall
Get it on Steam
Selected by Len

John Carmack was the first geek crush I met when we started New Age Gaming Magazine in 1997, yeah, that was a long time ago. The first game engine called Doom was epic fame for the man, alongside games like Quake, Alien vs. Predator, and Doom. My son Luke was a few months old when he “experienced” a beta version of Doom 3 for the first time, which we received in 2001 in the NAG office, my office with my son on his lap, bright-eyed, loving the cute monsters staring at the screen and as far as I can tell it has no side effects and is quite normal. Doom Eternal, released in 2020, is an epic game that you must have if you are a FPS fanboy and want to be a great parent like me. Now, let your newborn play the fucking game! It’s on sale for only R219.75

The door of death
Get it on Steam
Selected by Arielle

A breath of fresh air in an often stale genre

Death’s Door hits exactly the right notes for an indie game. It’s a visual masterpiece, with characters and environments that feel polished and alive. The score is atmospheric without ever appearing monotonous. The battle is challenging but rewarding, and the gameplay is easy to learn and balanced. As someone who generally doesn’t like the whole Soulslike style of the game, I was totally amazed by Death’s Door, partly because of its intriguing story, puzzle-filled world, and not every time I died which happened a lot.

Death’s Door is one of the more satisfying gaming experiences I’ve had in a game recently. The lack of any difficulty setting means that Death’s Door always feels challenging but never impossible. Every time I failed, I knew it was because I screwed it up, not because the game was just too tough or the mechanics were broken. By the time I finished Death’s Door I walked away wanting more and with a sense of accomplishment, which speaks volumes about how great the game really is.

Subnautica
Get it on Steam
Selected by Regardt

Subnaitica is one of the most awesome underwater games you will ever play. It’s another game that everyone should own and play at least once. You land on another planet that is completely covered with water. Your goal is to explore and survive this alien world by finding food and equipment to craft items and build underwater habitats. This game is just great and a lot of fun. If you haven’t already managed to snag this title, you can grab the base game for under R100 or grab one of the bundles for an equally good price.

Horizon Zero Dawn
Get it on Steam
Chosen by Lukas

I’ve played it on the Playstation many times and I can’t believe this amazing game made it to the PC. It’s beautiful in terms of visual feast, and the music is fantastic and the whole world is breathtaking. The whole story moved me to tears. Aloy brings the strength and the wits, you just have to bring the money.
