5 Best Deals of the 2016 Steam Autumn Sale
Ah, Steam Sales, the greatest medicine of all. They may not treat colds or get rid of pain, but they make our wallets feel so much better.
The 2016 Steam Autumn sale is going on right now and will continue through November 29th. The following five deals are what we believe to be the best deals available.
Broforce is one of the silliest and yet most fun games to come out in 2016. This 2D co-op title includes over the top action, explosions, hilariously bad puns, explosions, a plethora of game modes, a killer soundtrack, and explosions.
Usually, Broforce retails at $14.99 on Steam. Right now though, the game is 75% off, bringing the cost down to $3.74. In addition, you can also get four copies of Broforce as gifts for the other bros or brodettes in your life, and that package deal is also 75% off.
And, as a little bonus, you can currently download the game's quite good soundtrack for a mere $1.24, as opposed to the usual $4.99.
Check out the Broforce Steam page for more details.
Entries four and three on this list aren't games new games, and they aren't bundles, but they're both truly amazing indie games that you can currently pick up for next to nothing.
The first of these is Antichamber. Developed by Alexander Bruce, this is one of the strangest and most surreal games ever made. It isn't a horror title at all, but it will certainly bring a thrill to your senses. If you think games have become repetitive and stale, then Antichamber is exactly the breath of fresh air you need.
Usually available for $19.99, the game is currently 75% off, bringing the cost down to $4.99.

3. Ys Origin
Brought to us by one of the oldest game developers still in the business, Nihon Falcom, Ys Origin is an outstanding action JRPG.
With really impressive graphics for a low-cost game, smooth as butter gameplay and a story that subverts many of the tropes common JRPGs, there's a lot to like about Ys Origin.
Including a 40+ hour story, several additional (and really fun) game modes, and multiple playable characters, including several hidden, unlockable ones, Ys Origin is a steal at any price. And, for those of you who are really into achievements, this game offers over 40 of them.
Ys Origin is currently 70% off, bringing its cost down from $19.99 to $5.99.
