- Story-driven semi-open world detective game set in the 50s, definitely a very specific setting makings this game one of its own
- While released almost a decade ago, L.A. Noire on PC still holds up graphically
- Winner of four GOTY awards
- This edition includes all extra content released for the game; five new cases and two special costumes
- Has an impressive 83 score on MetaCritic
L.A. Noire is one of the most different games in the recent Rockstar Games catalog. Instead of one of their massive open-world titles, L.A. Noire has a fairly big world but the game follows a mission-to-mission structure in which the player will rarely be able to go away from their main objective, allowing the game to focus on delivering its great story to the player.
The player will be playing as Cole Phelps, a LAPD detective who starts climbing the ladder of his career as he solves cases through 50s Los Angeles. Solving a case will involve the player searching for clues, then asking questions and identifying if they're hearing a lie, a half-truth or if the questioned person is being honest through their face expressions and movements. Thanks to the technology used in L.A. Noire, every face in game was scanned thoroughly and each facial move, like for example, a small lip move, could mean something when questioning a character.
The story will progress slowly as the cases goes as Cole and his world start changing. While the ending might look a bit rushed, the game still delivers, and it's definitely one of the most interesting stories told by a Rockstar published title. Plus, the extra cases add an average of five extra gameplay hours and all of their self-contained stories are pretty interesting to follow. They are added as part of the game so you don't need to worry about in which order to play.
This deal beats the historical low from Steam as well any historical low since five years ago according to GG.Deals and it's the current best price on the game.
NieR Automata is one of the best games from Square Enix / Platinum Games
Great action JRPG with a flawed PC port
High replay value, averaging 61 hours of playtime for completionists according to HLTB
Winner of twelve GOTY awards, including Hardcore Gamer's, Slant Magazine's and WIRED
94% recommended by reviewers according to OpenCritic
NieR: Automata is the latest game from Yoko Taro to be released in the "big" platforms and it put NieR in the map for many players that weren't interested in the first game. In NieR, humanity lost Earth but it plans to retake it with the assistance of an android force called YorHa.
The game is an action JRPG although, it's also a Yoko Taro game, which means that it can change genre any time showing its creator craziness and imagination all time. So yes, it's a RPG but you might find yourself playing a shoot 'em up anytime, and this makes sure that the player will never expect what comes next. The game doesn't disappoint in any area, having a stellar soundtrack, a solid story and great controls, as well as stylish gameplay, although the PC port really could use some work and you might want to look into the FAR mod in order to have a better experience playing on PC.
This deal beats the historical low recorded by ITAD, although it's not the most complete version of the game. Still, great price for a game that it's worth hours of content especially due to its replay value.
According to OpenCritic, 72% of reviewers recommend it
Very immersive, developers did a great work on the atmosphere
One of the biggest horror games around
Beats the historical low recorded on Is There Any Deal
The Evil Within 2 is a sequel to 2014's horror game from Shinji Mikami, who worked in a number of classic Capcom games including Dino Crisis, Resident Evil, and brings the same atmospheric gameplay that was present in those games. This time around however, there won't be only zombies; instead all kinds of bizarre monsters will be hunting you. Worry not, because The Evil Within 2 vastly expands on its predecessor gameplay, this time with levels being much bigger and allowing multiple approaches.
This deal beats the historical low listed on Is There Any Deal[isthereanydeal.com], and it's the current best price on the game; the second best price comes from GamesPlanet UK which is an official distributor and has the game for ~$7.52 should you prefer to buy there.
DOOM is one of the best FPS around for those looking for fast-paced and satisfying gunplay
Released in 2016, DOOM can scale quite well between computer configurations, so even if you don't have the latest and best specs, give it a try
$3.99 is an absolute steal for the quality and amount of content in-game
DOOM returned in 2016 in a high-note. The legendary franchise who had been sleeping for years back then was put in great hands, and DOOM 2016 is one of the best FPS around for its single-player campaign. Slaying demons is EXTREMELY satisfying thanks to the smooth glory kills and gunplay. The game also features an upgrade system that allows you to get better stats and improve your guns, making killing demons even better. Graphically and on the sound-side of things, DOOM doesn't disappoint either. Using the Vulkan API to deliver a most optimized experience, the Mars landscape is incredibly atmospheric, and it's clear that the new idSoftware know what they're doing when it comes to textures and sound mixing.
This deal has the game for $3.99 which beats the Steam historical low, and honestly is a must for this price, especially if you're getting ready for Eternal next month.
Fallout 4 + Nuka World + Far Harbor are easily 80 hours of content if you aren't a completionist
Great action RPG that expands on Fallout 3 in every way
Modding scene is really active, and this deal includes all things you will need to enjoy all kinds of mods available
Includes all DLCs + base game, for $7.99; historical low on Steam for the GOTY edition is $14.99
Fallout 4, released in 2015 is the latest mainline single-player Fallout game from Bethesda. Featuring a massive crafting system (that can be expanded further thanks to mods) and improved shooting mechanics, exploring the Fallout world never felt so good. The story picks up on an interesting setting too; you see first hand the moment the bombs feel and wake up after a long time after the society colapse. After that, players will go on their journey, and if they prefer, they can mod the game any way they like.
Want to turn Fallout 4 in a hardcore survival RPG? Sure ✅
Add a totally different map in the game? Why not. ✅
Maybe a completely mess of random mods with anime swords, a photo of Taylor Swift in your PipBoy and whatever else you find? Go for it. ✅
For those who prefer to keep things lore-friendly, though, Bethesda's storyline will also be there and I personally recommend checking Far Harbor, the biggest DLC available for the game. It that takes place in a mysterious island as you character work as a detective in search for a missing person. This deal is a solid price for all the content the game has and while there's some discussion regarding NV x F4, in my opinion Fallout 4 is a much more enjoyable package nowadays, especially for newcomers.
The latest mainline The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim still is one of the most played games in Steam and while the Special Edition released in late 2016 might have caused some issues for players, the game itself still a gem and very much worth of a buy if you don't have it yet on PC.
Skyrim, originally released in 2011, was a global event. The game won multiple awards and has one of the biggest communities in gaming, and even now, years later, there still are plenty of mods being developed, including full-conversion mods that adds over 100 hours of content in an already very packed game. This deal is a solid price for the Legendary Edition, which includes all the main DLCs released for the game (Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn), as well it's the version that has the best support for modding and compatibility with older systems.
$7.99 for one the best version of one of the best games around
Includes all meaningful content released for the game
Better performance with older PCs than the newer Special Edition
Comes with cloud saves, achievements, trading cards and Steam Workshop support
Mad Max, launched in 2015 and developed by Avalanche Studios is an open-world third person game that features a combat system close to the one players saw in the Batman Arkham games. This deal is the current best price on the game.
Mad Max game from 2015 surely is at least worthy a try. The open-world certainly will appeal to fans of the franchise, and the upgrade system that allows you to further improve your car will certainly keep things interesting. As Max, you will often break through bandits' lairs and give them a beating. Fortunately, you don't need to worry about any 'jankyness' as it's often common in such games. Mad Max takes inspiration directly from the Arkham games from Rocksteady and it actually does a fairly good job at adapting that system in Max' world. Punching crazy post-apocalyptic bandits is super fun, and driving isn't bad either.
Here are some points regarding this deal
Great price for a game that has a 20 hour long main story
It's really optimized, so as long as your rig is within the min reqs you will have a good experience
According to HowLongToBeat, completionists can spend over 80 hours in the game
