The 2020 Steam Summer Sale ends soon, here's some final picks

By - | Views: 22,291

Stuck for what to pick up? With the huge Steam Summer Sale ending tomorrow at 5PM UTC, here's a little helping hand for you on what's good.

I get why you might be stuck, with well over six thousand games on Steam alone that support Linux, it's easy to get completely swallowed up in the vast sea of games. Especially true if you're looking to pick up a game on sale, as there's close to five thousand of those discounted!

Going by games that have a good discount on them and support Linux officially, plus they're rated very highly by users, here's 10 games you should definitely pick up if you don't own them already:

Those are all well-known, often talked about titles that are highly rated but what about the smaller and/or lesser-known titles that still deserve plenty of attention? Here's another few that I think are firmly worth spending some time with:

Picked up something good you're dying to tell everyone about? Let us know in the comments.

Been thoroughly underwhelmed by this event, at times I've even forgotten that here was one. It doesn't feel like Valve are even trying any more.

Another great one from devs with nice Linux support:

I picked up Dicey Dungeons. Only played the first "show", but it is good fun. And picked up the Puppygames Ultrabundle because I will have to try Basingstoke at some point. And a few more that I don't quite remember :D

QuoteDying Light - 66% off - With the upcoming Hellraid DLC (see our preview), it's going to get even more fun.

Is it supposed to be working well on Linux ?
I’m only getting a black screen with a white line at the bottom, like a loading something.
I thought maybe it’s just long to load, but it’s 10 minutes now, so it’s more like a crash i guess ?

Linux Manjaro (Arch) 64bits Xfce
Intel Core i5 4590 (4 x 3,3 GHz)
GeForce GTX 1060 @ 6 Go
Nvidia Drivers
16 Go DIMM DDR3 PC12800
SSD Crucial 480Go
BENQ GL2460 16/9 24" 1920x1080

Run it with the Steam Linux Runtime. Right click -> Properties -> Tick the Steam Play box and pick Steam Linux Runtime. It's the container system for Linux builds, as it seems something on Arch/Manjaro is conflicting with it preventing it running properly. The container fixes it :)

https://store.steampowered.com/app/704450/Neverwinter_Nights_Enhanced_Edition/ 75% for hours of fun online and single player, plus some modules(DLCs) are really cheap and fun like Pirates of the Sword Coast. One of my favorite RPG's. Plus also 7 Days to Die of course https://store.steampowered.com/app/251570/7_Days_to_Die 66%

If you get those look for me on GOL Discord so we can play online :D

Problem is... True native Linux games that I haven't already bought and that got my interest are getting fewer. I settled on Titanfall 2, Doom Eternal and Divinity: Original Sin 2 (which seems to work great after a tweak).

Waiting on Metro Exodus to officially release on Linux before buying it... Kind of contradictory, when you think of it... I'm buying games that are running fine on Proton but I won't buy a game that will release on Linux, even if it runs fine on Proton... Don't know what to think of it.
