Steam Spring Sale Recommendations: 5 Best Games Under $5

Finding Steam Spring Sale recommendations with over 100,000 video games available on the storefront is always tricky. With almost every one discounted, how do you pick just a handful? Here are five of the best games under $5 on the Steam Spring Sale this year!

5 Best Steam Spring Sale Games Under $5

With the rising cost of almost everything, it’s nice to know we can score a handful of cheap video games for less than $5 each year when the Steam Spring Sale rolls around!

Rainbow Six: Siege

Despite launching almost a decade ago now, Rainbow Six: Siege continues to make an impact in the competitive, team-based shooter genre. Its 5v5 gameplay on tight, confined maps forces you to work alongside your team, utilizing skills and gunplay to take down the opposing forces, and captures audiences and players. Every match is different, and the outcome is never a sure thing, which makes Rainbow Six: Siege highly replayable and well worth the few dollars it’s going for during the Steam Spring Sale!

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen

With Dragon’s Dogma 2 almost upon us, now is the perfect time to scoop up the first game—a cult classic RPG—for under $5 on the Steam Spring Sale. The graphics and combat may feel somewhat dated to those unfamiliar with RPGs of this style and time, but the overwhelming charm made it a fan favorite for many. In this expansive RPG, you will topple the Hydra, work alongside Pawns, and play as one of nine unique vocations (classes).

Left 4 Dead 2

To this day, I cannot think of another cooperative first-person shooter that held my attention and keeps me returning for more annually, like Left 4 Dead 2. In my eyes, it is the perfect co-op game, with plenty of unique maps to run through, fun weapons to wield, survivors with memorable one-liners, and immense mod support that helps keep every round fresh and sometimes downright whacky. For less than $1, you can score a piece of history that will easily keep you busy for 100 hours or more!

Batman: Arkham Knight

While Rocksteady Studios doesn’t hold the same weight it did in years past, Batman: Arkham Knight may be one of the most popular and highly-regarded titles. The best part is that you can score the game for under $5 right now. It’s a third-person action game in which you’ll step into the black boots of Batman himself, taking down criminals across and beneath the city. You’ll do so with a myriad of tools, like the Batmobile, brand-new armor, and gadgets galore!

Fallout: New Vegas

If you ask a Fallout fan their favorite modern release, they’ll likely tell you Fallout: New Vegas. It’s become something of a meme online that no one can discuss any other Fallout game without mentioning their undying love for New Vegas. But there’s a reason for the community with no chill: New Vegas is exceptional. It offers plenty of unique dialogue, different build styles, multiple ways to complete quests, including the main storyline, and a ton of replayability. It’s available for under $5 right now, which makes it the perfect Steam Spring Sale recommendation!
