Have you picked up anything during Steam Sports Fest 2023?

By - | Views: 16,221

Steam Sports Fest has officially begun (I'm a little late on that) and it runs until May 22nd, so you've got plenty of time to check it out. During this time there are demos, discounts, free Steam stickers each day and more.

What actually counts as a sport when it comes to games is a pretty wide genre, that said sports as a whole is a pretty big net so no doubt there's something you'll be able to find.

Valve continue doing their funny little trailers now too:

Although they do the more serious business trailers as well:

If you scroll down the special sale page, there will be all sorts of filters you can apply. It's pretty slim pickings if you're only going for Native Linux games though. For Steam Deck and desktop Linux with Proton, there's loads of good picks that work out of the box. Admittedly sporting games aren't exactly my jam though.

Have you picked up anything good?

Athlete's foot. But I'm not sure if it's caused by the sale..?

Kidding aside. I did snatch up the four free DLCs for Dirt Rally 2.0!

Hmm... nope!

Nope as I'm not into sport games. But I loved Tacticon 2023 that happened just before. Small, highly specialised festival like that are really cool.

Nah, nothing for me in this one - sports games aren't my thing. My wallet is thankful.

I did look at Descenders (again), and it still looks fun, but I really don't need more games right now. Gotta work on that backlog.

I was going the get SRX: The Game..... But according to steam motorsports is not a sport so its not on sale.....

I picked up Session (the skateboard game) (but not at this sale) ... and unfortunately hated it.

It had too strong angsty juvenile vibes and I didn't care for the quality of the modeling or the controls.

I'm open to suggestions for great games, but sports has come across to me as a genre where some content can get away half assing things as there isn't fierce competition.

Well here's a decidedly non-angsty skateboard game for you.
