The Game Awards is airing tonight, December 6, which means a number of the year’s best games will get recognized for excelling in various categories. But as they say, it’s an honor just to be nominated. Speaking of the nominees, Steam is running a sale on Game Awards nominees, which means many of the year’s best titles are available at sizable discounts. Let’s take a look.
You can go treasure hunting to stave off the apocalypse in Shadow of the Tomb Raider for $30. You can thin out the population of Ancient Greece in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey for $40. If party-based epic RPGs are more your speed, Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is a smart choice for $42, as is Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom for $30. And anyone interested in taking down massive beasts and crafting their body parts into weapons and armor can pick up Monster Hunter World for $40.
Fighting game fans have a couple of appealing options with Dragon Ball FighterZ, an over-the-top anime brawler for $24, and the weapon-based combat of SoulCalibur VI for $42. Anyone into action games with retro-style graphics can pick up Dead Cells for $20 or The Messenger for $14. And if you’d like to get mad at your family members, significant other, or roommate, Overcooked 2 will provide that service for $19.
