Gaming can be an expensive hobby (however once you have the equipment and play your cards right, it can be insanely cheap for the hours of entertainment it gives), but fortunately there are constant deals going all around the web for games, sometimes they're free, sometimes they're much cheaper than they would otherwise be.

Good places to check if you're looking to grow your collection include:

Humble Bundle - a store with a focus on occasionally doing big bundles of games or a monthly subscription at cheap prices, with some of your money (you can choose how much) going to charity

Steam Sales - good for individual games you're interested in, you'll just need to wait. They do big overall sales in the Summer, around Black Friday and New Year but every now and then there's a 'publisher weekend' and there's always at least a few good deals on in the store. I can't remember the last time I bought a game full-price from there.

Other sites to check include GOG, IndieGala, UPlay. Sometimes Humble Bundle and UPlay even have free games, while some games are permanently free on Steam.

This is a very PC-gaming focused list but it can grow and I'd like to include console games but I don't know where to get them, please post any individual really good deals that you think might be of interest.

And an important disclaimer: Don't just buy something because it's on offer in a sale. It's tempting but see if you really want it or you think you might enjoy it. I bought a few Humble Bundles recently and now I have a HUGE backlog of games to get through, having spent not all that much considering the quantity. No regrets yet but I'm forcing myself to not buy every deal I see as it's unlikely I'll play it before there is another sale at this point.

Omg I'm SO bad for just getting so much shtie in the PS4 or Steam sales I'll probably rarely play, especially in the PS4 sales where they'll reduce the PS2 classics or indie games to like under a fiver, because it's only 3 or 4 quid I'm like "oh if I don't play it hardly matters because it was so cheap and it's there if I want it, which is true I suppose but still the small amounts all add up tongue.gif

�� £329.99 - Nintendo Switch, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild ��

Don't know how good this deal is but it's currently one of the top trending ones on HotUKDeals at 936°. Either way you mess about with it, it seems like you're getting £22 off Mario Kart 8 and £18 off Legend of Zelda. happy.gif

PS4 has a lot on sale rn, can't wait to get some stuff for it when I'm done with exams and have time to play stuff.

Got my eye on the following, won't buy them all and I also need A Hat In Time, but all such good deals!

Horizon Zero Dawn complete (main game + DLC) £29.99
Just Cause 3 £8.99
The Sims 4 £28.99
Rise Of The Tomb Raider £14.99

Really tempted by Horizon Zero Dawn as it's the DLC as well although I still don't know if it's fully my thing but I definitely want The Sims. Thinking that, obviously A Hat In Time, and Tomb Raider as I loved the first PS4 one and still haven't played it and £15 is a steal.

I have such bad internet that I try and avoid buying digital games, I only get the free ones from PS Plus as they are normally smaller indie games and don't take as long to download. laugh.gif

MICROSOFT XBOX ONE X 1TB 4K CONSOLE WITH CALL OF DUTY: WW2, ASSASSIN'S CREED ORIGINS, OVERWATCH AND MIDDLE-EARTH: SHADOW OF WAR - £449.00 @ TESCO



Deal ends tomorrow so grab it while you can if you want one. Cracking deal to be honest, all you're paying for is the console and getting FOUR free games!!!

Same technicality as the Nintendo Switch deal posted earlier (combining several bundles into one).

Equivalent on Amazon is £597.11!

Tempted by the new PS4 Tomb Raider game. As Liam said, the first reboot was superb.


I have 1gb/s internet here so downloads aren't really an issue for me.

I’ve seen that the Tesco Nintendo switch deal has expired.

Anyone know the best deal on the switch for about £300? Want a Mario game with it

There's a Humble Bundle of Paradox stuff available right now. Considering I'm always extolling their virtues it seems a waste not to advertise it. Sadly not including EU4 (although that goes on sale regularly for a tenner) but it does have Crusader Kings 2 (the second best and best for memes) and Stellaris, as well as a couple of their older titles.

That Tesco deal seemed too good to be true tbh, I'm struggling finding anything equivalent.

Amazon are doing Nintendo Switch and Mario Kart 8 for £310.99.

The Switch HAS to be the Neon Blue/Red version and at the checkout you need to use code BIGTHANKS to get that price.

I'm not sure how long that code lasts for, so it's up to you if you want it badly whether to get it sooner or wait and see if anything else pops up in the coming weeks (I check daily).
