Get your wallet ready, the Steam Summer Sale starts today

Get ready for what's reported to be the biggest sale so far!

Prepare your wallet - the 2018 Steam Summer Sale has officially begun.

To see how much you've spent on Steam, just follow this link, log into your personal account, and check the "Total Spend" row. Like every other annual sale Valve holds, this one offers deep discounts on numerous games in Steam's catalog. There are also Summer Sale trading cards to unlock by exploring your discovery queue and spending money, so if you're a badge collector, you'll want to make sure you're completing your discovery queue each day to earn those cards. Some games in the Fallout franchise can be had with discounts of up to 75 percent.

That does mean that you'll need to add a few dollars for outside purchases, but it also means that your number won't be inflated or deflated by games you've acquired through outside deals or through other channels.

Elsewhere, you can pick up The Brookhaven Experiment for only $4.99 (75 percent off the original $19.99 asking price) and score discounts of up to 85 percent on select Sonic games.

Since you may not want to wade through all the offers, I'd like to present to you a list of 7 games that you may want to check out.

It's not surprising given the regularity of the Steam sales, or at least the summer ones. Steam Controller too is discounted by 33% but still costs €36.84.
