The Steam Winter Sale 2021 is now live

By - | Views: 22,207

The moment I'm sure plenty of our readers have been waiting for: the Steam Winter Sale 2021 is now live.

Perhaps now is a good time to stock up on some games ready for the Steam Deck? Then again, speaking from experience, my own backlog is somewhat frightening that I can't wait to dive in with on it. Still…certain games are hard to ignore when they have a particularly tasty discount going.

Some favourites or just otherwise fun games discounted for anyone needing a few suggestions.

Native support

Proton

For me personally, I'm looking at grabbing Homeworld Remastered Collection (Proton) that's a huge 90% off. I have some really fond memories of the original, playing on a PC at the time that could barely handle it. I'm a sucker for space sci-fi and RTS so it might be time to jump back in.

What will you be picking up? Be sure to let us know in the comments.

Steam often struggles to keep up with demand during these sales, so we can recommend trying the unofficial SteamDB Sales page if you find it goes down. They have a lot of filters to make it easy to find what you want.

Also you will find The Steam Awards is open for voting until January 3, 2022.

Great game, finished it a couple of months ago and runs perfectly fine on Linux now.
Played on an Nvidia 3060ti with DLSS working perfectly.

I can't play right now, but stashing these for later for now...

Valheim - 12,59€ - on your recommendation, plus my friend's
DEATH STRANDING - 17,99€ - On your recommendation
Party Panic - 2,79€ - I like local co-op games
Super Bomberman R - 7,99€ - Overpriced but I hope it's good in local co-op
Oh...Sir!! The Insult Simulator - 0,61€ - I've been hesitating too long for that one

I hesitated to take Vainquish, Wolfenstein and a few others, we'll see later, there's still time :D

I'll be picking up Horizon Chase Turbo (75% off!), probably with the Senna DLC if I don't feel like waiting for that to go on sale too.

Here's hoping that this time next year, a lot of those devs that have previously been too lazy to release native Linux versions have seen the error of their ways. In the meantime, there are plenty of devs out there who are worthy of receiving my money.

Quoting: GuestWould be easier to read if you just put the Linux games in a separate list from the Windows games.
Sure, I can understand that, done.

Quoting: GuestTo be honest I don't get the point of including Windows games that run via Proton
Because it's a list of personal recommendations, and I recommended them. They work great.

I can see a few sides to this debate. Personally, I think the more games that run on Linux, Proton or not, the more Linux gamers there will be, and the more worth it it will be for devs to support native Linux. A virtuous circle of sorts.

Additionally Proton / Wine is really good in preserving games. Sometimes older games that used to run on Linux got some serious issues over time (maybe just ported once then forgotten, maybe ported / developed requiring libs no longer used). Often Proton / Wine is an easy alternative to get them running again (last used by myself with The Last Door Season 1). Of course this is an argument for using free engines / runtimes but most publishers think otherwise.
