Love video games? Valve just kicked off its annual Steam Summer Sale

Own a Windows, Mac, or Linux computer? Enjoy video games? It’s time to load up Steam, because Valve just kicked off its beloved annual Summer Sale.

The celebrations run from June 19-30, giving players a whole host of daily deals and flash sales – the latter of which rotates every eight hours – to take advantage of. The summer months are typically quite low-key for the video game industry – publishers save their biggest titles for the autumn and winter seasons – so this is a good chance to catch-up with older releases you may have missed.
