Whether you’re looking for cheap deals on great gaming experiences or looking to get started absolutely free, we’ve rounded up the best cheap PC games at their best prices this December — all providing insane value below $25.
Silent killer: Among Us
Among Us has witnessed soaring popularity, with this space station-set social deduction game a smash hit throughout 2020. While crewmates complete a brief list of assigned chores, imposters aim to sabotage the facility, killing the occupants without raising suspicion. It’s best played with friends, making for an unmissable online social experience.
Epic adventure: The Witcher 3
The Witcher 3 isn’t just a great RPG; it’s among the few true masterpieces available on PC. As the legendary monster hunter, Geralt of Rivia, players will explore its deep open-world, facilitating tight combat and top-tier storytelling. It remains a must-play, with current sales putting this firmly within the affordable bracket.
Drop into combat: Call of Duty: Warzone
Call of Duty picked up its first free-to-play battle royale earlier this year, with more changes on the horizon in tandem with the release of Black Ops Cold War. It’s one of the best in the growing genre, translating many iconic weapons, killstreaks, and locations from past series entries into a single experience.
Last man standing: Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout
This virtual Takeshi’s Castle or Wipeout compiles dozens of fun mini-games into a heated competition, with contestants eliminated at the end of each round. It launched to instant fame with its PlayStation and PC releases earlier in 2020, capturing our hearts with its vibrant playground games.
Packed with puzzles: Portal 2
While first launched almost one decade ago, we’d be ashamed if you’re yet to pick up Portal 2 for your PC. While its puzzle-platforming gameplay makes for an unforgettably quirky single-player story, it also has a gripping cooperative mode to enjoy alongside one buddy.
Shooter from hell: DOOM Eternal
Once a defining name in the first-person shooter, DOOM made its modern-day return coupled with the most fluid, goretastic action you’ll find on PC. The latest DOOM Eternal can now be found below $20 through the end of the year, with a lengthy single-player campaign you won’t forget and multiplayer mode to pair.
Visit the underworld: Hades
With an epic serving of Greek mythology, non-stop action, an addictive roguelike progression system, and a surprisingly deep build system, don’t skip on Hades. Its artwork, soundtrack, and addictive gameplay loop all keep you hooked beyond the traditional isometric RPG formula, even selected for our “Best Independent Game” award in 2020.
All the classics: Halo: The Master Chief Collection
Microsoft brought its legendary Halo franchise to PC throughout this year. While Halo: The Master Chief Collection costs $25 altogether, you can pick up Halo 1-4, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo: Reach individually too. You can find them for $10 a pop, with the campaign, multiplayer, and other supporting modes as they shipped years ago.
These are the cheapest PC games to buy in 2021.
