In a sad day for PC gamers the world over, Valve’s celebrated Steam sale is in its last day of offers.

As is custom, the final day of the sale does not have a ‘featured’ game for sale but instead is featuring the most popular games from the rest of the sale. It also marks the last day users can earn Steam’s ‘Summer Getaway Trading Cards’, a new feature that was added this year.

Some of the best PC games from the last couple of years are heavily discounted today, so take advantage of it while you still can. BioShock Infinite for example is just $39.99, while Square Enix’s Tomb Raider is a mere $17.49.

Skyrim Legendary Edition, one of the most celebrated games of the last five years, is going for $29.99. Other good deals are Civilization V for $17.49, Borderlands 2 for $16.99, and Dishonored for $15.29.

The rest of the deals you can only get for another 15 hours or so include Chivalry: Medieval Warfare for $6.24, Torchlight II for $4.99, Kerbal Space Program for $13.79, and The Walking Dead for $6.24.

Yesterday’s big deals are still up for grabs as well, including Sonic All Star Racing Transformed, Natural Selection II, Knights of the Old Republic II, Assassins Creed III, Saints Row The Third, Worms Revolution, and Counter Strike Go, at discounts between 34% and 75%.

Do yourself a favour and check out the sale for yourself here.

The sale comes as Valve revealed its Pipeline program, for highschool students. Hopefully for the gaming industry we'll see some Gabe Newell Juniors coming out of the woodwork before too long.
