Do you want to add some new content to your game library but can’t spend a lot of money? Don’t hesitate, and we have compiled a list of recommended games that you can get permanently at a Very Low Price on Steam. Some classic works are still worth seeing today, but there are also various types of inside information. We hope you enjoy browsing!
The best action game under $10
The tactical shooting game divides you into groups of five in a hostage situation at zero Hour, allowing you to compete with each other in PvP. The focus is on realism, teamwork, and the use of different gadgets. Zero Hour hopes to combine elements from SWAT, Rainbow Six, and Ghost Recon and has already received 86% of Steam reviews in Early Access. (Early access, about $10)
Assassin’s Creed and Assassin’s Creed 2
The first two Assassin’s Creed games may not be the latest, especially the graphics. But especially part 2 of the story with Ezio in the Italian Renaissance is considered by many to be the best part of the series-including our significant ranking of all Assassin’s Creed games.
Portal 1 and Portal 2
If you haven’t played Portal 1 and Portal 2 yet, you really shouldn’t say it out loud, and you should catch up with the classics around the clever portal puzzle mechanism and the lively AI GLaDOS as soon as possible. It’s not unreasonable that we rated Portal as the best PC game of all time even if the cake is a lie.
The best strategy game for less than $10
A slightly different construction strategy game with an unusual name allows you to form your village from randomly generated hexagonal fields and create villages, forests, rivers, and occupations. There are more cards on the matching page. Small side missions like build more than 100 contiguous woodlands provide a surprisingly decisive addiction factor. (Approximately $9)
The Townscaper building game uses a similar approach. Here, you can also build your town by adding a platform, using the most straightforward controls, and a comfortable and beautiful Artstyle. The place you choose for it and the surrounding fields determine the appearance of your building. For example, your city will change dynamically and can be built to an infinite height. Fabiano tells you in his preview why this simple principle is so appealing. (Early access, about $5)
Bloons TD 6
Bloons TD 6 does not look exceptional. Cartoon graphics and monkeys with balloons should discourage most people in the first few seconds. But behind it was an extremely demanding tower defense game with countless tactical options, which kept our editor Dennis staring at the screen for several weeks. (Approximately 8 USD)
The best survival games under $10
The hand-painted 2D game Don’t Starve is a true classic for survival lovers. You will explore a dark and randomly generated world in the endless mode that you will either conquer or be overwhelmed by it. In the cooperative game Don’t Starve Together, you can even loot, craft, and fight in two, but you have to pay $15 for this. (Approximately 8 USD)
After years of development, Terraria’s 2D open-world has finally become an absolute masterpiece. If you like the principles of Minecraft but still want some role-playing and exploration, Terraria is the ultimate waste of time for you. (Approximately $10)
Best role-playing games for less than $10
Fallout: New Vegas
Yes, New Vegas has been around for a few years, and no mods look a bit muddy. But if you want to ignore it, you will get a vivid post-apocalyptic, just like almost nothing in other games. The unique charm of this role-playing game even makes it ranked third among our 100 best open-world games of all time. (Approximately US$10)
If you are looking for a truly extraordinary story experience that can change the tradition of role-playing and make you laugh and cry at the same time, then you should give the cult classic Undertale a chance. The clever soundtrack alone is at least worth listening to. (Approximately US$10)
Regarding Gothic, we may not need to tell you more-after all, the tough role-playing game in the Ruhr region is still unparalleled in its many open-world mechanics. Our role-playing expert Dimi tells you in his column why Gothic is still so important in 2021. (Approximately $10)
