Yet another huge sale is going on and now it's Valve's turn, as the Steam Winter Sale is now officially live.

There's thousands of games, DLC and more on sale. Here's my personal highlights of Linux stuff I think you really need to try:

I've been having a look through, and if you don't have the various Valve big games, e.g. Portal, Portal 2, Half-Life 1 and 2, Counter-Strike - They're at a massive 90% discount in this sale. Also Psychonauts, Teslagrad, World of Goo, Serious Sam 3 BFE are 90% off too. (The Valve bundles are even more so... e.g. 93% off for Half-Life bundle.)

Dungeon Warfare, one of my fave games of 2017 is at very high discount - 75% off. (Usually it is no more than 50% off.)

Crypt of the Necrodancer, Shadowrun Returns, Valley, Hard West, SOMA, Talos Principle, Dirt Rally are at high discount - 80% off. (Great games!)

Tomb Raider (2013), Deus Ex: Mankind Divided are 85% off - fantastic games, at massive discount.

Tempting for me (i.e. I don't own it yet) is Salt and Sanctuary, which is at 60% discount. And 'Downward' at 40% off. And 'The Culling' at 75% off.

Note - I went through 225 pages of Linux Steam games, to make the summary above. (TSKKKK!) 20 games per page ~ 4500 games/dlc/films FOR LINUX on sale!

I have too many games. :( It would be silly for me to get more this time around. *thinks about Overwatch that's currently installing on the PS4*

Got 10 games, looking foreward to trying and collecting stuff to play on the big screen with friends.

90% off the steam link - I'm hoping that means they have new hardware coming out, though with my luck it properly means that the link was a flop and they are bailing :(

I picked up:

* Jackbox party pack 4 (has working linux build but not "supported")
* Poly bridge
* Hand of Fate 2
* Deus Ex collections
* Hollow Knight

I will probably be playing the party pack this christmas or new years party. I have 'keep talking and no on explodes' and a few other linux party games so this should be a good collection of fun this year.

I've a file named "ToPlay.txt" that is already too long.
...but Motorsport manager is 75% off and i missed it from the autumn sale.
Is 8,74 EUR! (On Fanatical even less)
Now is mine, finally :)

I bought my Steam Link during the last sale, I've been using it every day since it arrived & it works really well over my wifi network. :D

Looking at the sales pages on Steam I need a filter for all the stuff I already own.

Although I already own enough games to play, I think I will go for Talos Principle this time. It's finally 80% off (last sales were only 75% off) and a decent offer.

I just bought Hidden Folks to play over Christmas with my wife. And finally bought Tomb Raider as well. I really want to buy Thimbleweed Park or Quern, (or one of the other ~100 games on my wishlist,) but I might be a bit over budget already. We've spent more on Christmas gifts than I expected.

There is a possibility that they're making a 4k version of course.

You can do that through the SteamDB sales page.
