This is why the article Where to buy cheap games? was created. Thanks to the data presented here, you will be able to find your favorite pc games at best prices.
Not so long ago, when PSX was the best selling console and Internet was not yet popular, games were expensive. We had to pay more than $100 for a game. These were rather sad times, luckily nowadays the situation is completely different. Thanks to the internet you can easily compare various offers and search for the best one for you. To provide you with an example, you can visit the G2A Marketplace where you can find all the best offers and sales for most games you can imagine.
Summer sales, back to school sales, spring sales, Christmas sales and so long and so forth. If you want to get the most interesting prices then you have to be focused all the time. Remember that you are a predator. Get ready and search for the best offers and sales.
Especially now, when such games like Cyberpunk 2077, Final Fantasy VII Remake on PS4 or Medievil Remake are going to appear soon and remember that PS4 and XBOX games are not cheap without a sale. Furthermore, you should notice that currently there are many websites which focus on creating groups of people and databases with information about the best offers and sales.
If you are a gamer, then you probably heard about game bundles. After all they are quite popular since 2016. However, if you are not familiar with the concept of bundle then we will be more than happy, to describe this to you. Games bundles was a fairly simple idea introduced in 2010.
The player is provided with a set of games sold at price, decided by none other than a consumer himself. If he wishes he can pay as low as $0.01. The part of the price is send to charities (which consumer also can choose) and the rest is distributed among developers and the company responsible for the bundle.
The question which you might ask is probably: Where there is a profit for the developer?
Well, first of all the profit is not important. Developers simply want to raise money for charities. Second is the fact, that people usually are going to pay much more than $0.01. Besides, companies which offer the bundle were able to create an idea, which “encourages” players to buy more.
For example they divide the bundle in a few parts. The basic games can be bought for as low price as $0.01, however the best games can be get only if you pay the certain price or more, for example $5. Do not worry though, the price is usually much lower than the value of all the games combined in the bundle.
Online game shops came up with, a new interesting idea. They decided to provide players with loot boxes (similar to the ones, you can buy in games). Nowadays, only a few biggest online shops have such an option. However, judging by its popularity it seems, that it is going to become a standard soon. How does it work? To provide you with an example the G2A Loot, allows you to gain Loot Points.
There are a few ways in which you can do it, you can buy them, subscribe the G2A Plus to gain a few points each month or you can use the reflink system. These points can be used to buy boxes which contain various games. Then, similar to cases in Counter Strike:Global Offensive, one item (or in this case, a game) is picked randomly from the box. If you insist you can even create your own box with games you had chosen.
What else do you need that a little bit of gambling fun? You should also remember that each of the box contains various titles. Some of them can be considered as common, the other are rare but you probably are going to aim for “epic” games. As the name suggest, these are products which are the most valuable.
To provide you with an example. G2A Loot has a box known as Don’t Worry, Loot Happy. This box costs 15 Loot Points and it contains 26 games. These games are put in three categories:
Common – Such titles like Super Hexagon, Deponia or Goat Simulator. Each game in this category is worth between 1-3 Euro.
Rare – These are more expensive and more popular games such as Rocket League, Grow Up or Goodbye Deponia. In this category games are worth usually between 5-20 Euro.
Epic – These are the most interesting games in the box. They might be a new AAA products, the most popular games in the target month or the best games in a certain category. In the Don’t Worry, Loot Happy the Epic games are We Happy Few, Monster Hunter World or Bus Simulator 16. These games are worth between 20-50 Euro.
Obviously you are going to try to catch one of this games. There are some people, who considered loot boxes as a gambling. However, it should not be treated in such way. After all in each instance you are going to win something.
While emotions during the roll of the price from the loot box might be similar, still there is nothing for you here to lose. Hence, there is no reason to compare loot boxes to gambling.
Sales, bundles, loots etc. everything leads us to the most important aspect which are, games. You probably want to buy your favorite titles. However if you did not decide yet for what game you should look for, then we have a few interesting titles for you.
Surivival Horror | Release date: 2019
It is the title everyone is waiting for. Resident Evil 2 is widely considered as one of the best (if not the best) survival horror games ever created. However, this game from the era of first Play Station is a bit old and archaic for today standards. This is why Capcom decided to make a remake. The remake is going to take your for an interesting trip through the Raccoon City Police Department.
This time though, it is going to be much more scary than before. Pitch blackness and claustrophobic rooms are going to scare you like nothing ever before. Zombies are slow yet still, there are incredibly dangerous. They can sustain a few handgun shots and ammo is scarce. As either Leon (a rookie police officer) or Claire (sister of Chris Redfield, one of heroes from the first game) you need to survive the living hell of a city infected with zombies. This game is probably going to be expensive (like most Capcom games). Hence, you should look for sales.

Action-adventure Game | Release date: Unknown
The history of Beyond Good and Evil is sad and interesting at the same time. The game was released by Ubisoft in 2003 and it was love by critics as well as by players worldwide. It was a perfect mix of a platformer, action, and stealth game packed with tons of content, minigames and interesting plot full of characters you simply cannot ignore. Yet the game failed miserably from the financial point of view.
Ubisoft made a mistake of releasing the game at the same time when Prince of Persia: Sands of Time was released. This is why, players focused on Prince of Persia and forget about Beyond Good and Evil for fifteen years. However, fans did not forget and they demanded the sequel. Finally Ubisoft decided to release Beyond Good and Evil 2. So are you ready to start a new adventure in this prequel of the story, you know from the original game? Well then Beyond Good and Evil 2 might be a game you are looking for.
