If you aren’t in the know, like me, Quakecon started this weekend on the 4th and up to the 7th. It’s a bit too late for any of us to go catch up on Zenimax Media’s celebration and promotion of their major franchises from the studios they own, including the much beloved id Software and, of course, the great Bethesda. But it isn’t too late for us PC gamers who happen to have Steam accounts. Then again, who doesn’t have a Steam account in 2016? Console plebs; that’s who.
I kid, of course, and only want to foster the love for all things Quake and everything else this franchise has inspired. With all this hubbub about another team-based shooter coming in the form of Quake Champions this 2017 (the beta at least), and the shooter genre seemingly getting a strong revival due to the efforts of Overwatch, CS:GO, and the like, going back to the franchise that started it all is something on everybody’s gaming menu.
In celebration of this event, Steam has put up a Quakecon sale where all things Quake, their subsidiaries, and all things Bethesda are on sale up to the 8th (tomorrow!!!) for up to a whopping 50%.
Steam Account Value Sale! The Games
First of all, you’ve got the ever-awesome revival of the Doom series by Bethesda going for a chunky 50% off from its regular price. This is one game, if you haven’t played yet, that you should be grabbing right this instant. It’s single player campaign is something that the gaming industry hasn’t seen for decades, bringing back to a modern age what made Doom so popular in the first place – unfettered blood and guts. More than anything else, this is the one to fetch you the most Steam account value.
The next that I would suggest you get for your Steam account is, of course, Wolfenstein as it is as much a classic as Doom and Quake are. With some intense story telling, amazing golden standard FPS gameplay, and a riveting overall, it’s another that you simply cannot miss out on for this massive Steam sale.
There are, of course, a ton more games for you to go buy. These are only my top two suggestions. Check out the Quakecon sale on Steam before it ceases on the 8th!
