Top Steam Games Under Five Dollars: Our Recommendations

SteamFirst: How often do you log onto your Steam client and see in the top right corner your wallet balance with only a few dollars left. Oh how I hate having Steam cash just sitting there going to waste. There are always some excellent FTP titles available such as Team Fortress 2, Warframe and DOTA 2, but sometimes you want to branch out from free to play. This article is a list of my personal top 5 Steam titles that you can spend your last five bucks on. (Clive Barker's Jericho, Monday Night Combat, Overlord, PC, Steam, The Binding of Isaac, VVVVVV)

I'm sorry, but that's quite a poor list. IMO.
Moncole  +   468d ago
Its called an opinion. Everyone would have a different list.
ThatEnglishDude  +   468d ago
I've never understood why people feel the need to state that. No shit it's an opinion. Does saying this somehow make my opinion less relevant? No.

Almost everything on Steam is poor.

I wish more people would admit it something we all know deep down.

There are hundreds of meh games, mediocre at best, and virtually zero triple AAA games that make you go wow.

Steam sucks in all honesty.

If you disagree with me, you must link a decent new game on Steam.

If you disagree without linking, your gpu will overheat and die within the next 2 weeks.

OK Metal Gear Rising came out on Friday and not only is it good but from what I have played it is quite the solid port.
You are trolling but I want to mention this game because Platinum deserves some recognition on PC so more of there games come to the platform and I want MGS (that won't happen though)

I was excited to buy my new consoles, but 2 months in and the only thing I still "play" is XBox Fitness. When I'm done with that I switch on my PC where I have a quite overwhelming list of games queued up to play.

@dsswoosh - it's that type of mentality that stagnates our beloved industry. "If it ain't AAA, it ain't good". Means that people just buy the same old games, meaning publishers don't take risks. PC is where you go if you want something fresh and new.

Imo Dota 2 tops everything out there right now and its free. Sure it has items you could buy for the game but those are purely cosmetic.

I personally love the Glados kill announcer in dota 2, hilariously funny.
SteamFirst  +   468d ago
Ahh, yes. My next article which is pending is my top 5 free to play and dota 2 is number one. This is inexpensive, but not free games. Feel free to comment and suggest other titles which you prefer. We all have our own opinions. Right.

I got Half Life 2 for under 5 bucks. An oldie but a greatie.
SteamFirst  +   468d ago
It is a great one. This list is of best $5 games when not on sale. But agreed. Half Life is great

I just downloaded the Steam App last night for the first time. WOW. I cant believe what I've been missing. The Mods alone make it so much better than console. And with the Big Picture mode it plays just like a console. The dashboard is actually better than X1 or PS4. I just ordered a GTX 670 graphics card so I can rock the Skyrim upscaling mods. I had no idea what I had been missing.

Plus the savings johnny every saving you make is saving off your 670 ;)

Welcome mate and have fun.
SteamFirst  +   468d ago
The app is amazing. Just another great part of being a Steam gamer.
webeblazing  +   468d ago
you mean the os. i maybe try it later closer to the end of the beta. you if you mean the phone app, yes i can chat with people on my friends list and buy stuff on sale while out of town and even have it download to my pc. steam keeps improving as time goes by
Volkama  +   468d ago
You think it's good now? Wait til you see a Steam Sale in action. It may just blow your mind.

I quite enjoyed the binding of isaac. Other good cheap games I'd go for are Torchlight 2 and FTL... if there's anyone on steam who doesn't actually have them
hiredhelp  +   468d ago
Steam offers a wide range Games And Software Saved hundreds litterally on sales.
