Have you been indecisive during Steam Summer Sale 2018? Unsure of which game you want to buy? These are the picks of open world games by us! Perhaps you have heard some of these games before but are yet to jump in. No worries, there will be extra recommendations of the same franchise. Lets us jump into the value you’re getting for these games!
How much of a sale we’re talking here?
We weigh in the amount of discount applied to the game itself and measure it with the number of hours you can get in completing the game. From start to finish.
Main story: The amount of time needed to complete the game if you’re only doing the main quests.
Main + Extras: Completing the game by finishing both the main quests and the side quests.
Completionist: 100% completion of the game. Basically unlocking every achievement on top of finishing the main quests and side quests.
The hours shown are the average time recorded by existing players.
The Batman Arkham Franchise
Batman: Arkham Knight Premium Edition (-75% off)
US$9.99 / RM18.75
Main story: 15½ Hours.
Main + Extras: 29 Hours.
Completionist: 46 Hours.
Bonus – Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY Edition (-75%), Batman: Arkham City GOTY Edition (-75%), Batman: Arkham Origins (-75%)
Basically, all of the Batman Arkham games are solid games, even the much-debated Arkham Origins which was not made by Rocksteady, the studio behind the other three Arkham games. As the older Arkham games are selling on a dirt cheap prices. I’d recommend buying all of them if you never played any of the Batman games before. I’m sure the experience of all Batman games would sink you a ton of hours into it.
The Fallout Franchise
Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition (-50% off)
US$9.99 / RM19.00
Main story: 38½ Hours.
Main + Extras: 84 Hours.
Completionist: 162 Hours.
Bonus – Fallout 3 GOTY Edition (-50%), Fallout 4 GOTY Edition (-50%)
The best Fallout game, New Vegas offers deep storyline with different branching paths you can take. You are the master of your choices. Become the Courier and seek redemption from the people who betrayed you, while fighting for the greater good, or greater evil. I’ve probably completed New Vegas around three times now because it’s that good! Fallout 3 is great as well, however, there is a compatibility issue for running the game on Windows 10. Do look up for fixes online if you want to get it as well.
The Saints Row Franchise
Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package (-75% off)
US$3.75 / RM7.75
Main story: 15 Hours.
Main + Extras: 26 Hours.
Completionist: 43 Hours.
Bonus – Saints Row IV: Game of the Century Edition (-75%)
Ever since Saints Row: The Third is conceived, it became the “GTA of ridiculousness”. Which isn’t a bad thing of course, after its departure from the more serious Saints Row 2. Wrecking havoc and causing destruction is the core of this game, go wild with your character and cause chaos all over! The game isn’t the best open-world game out there, but it sure is a fun one.
The Grand Theft Auto Franchise
Grand Theft Auto V (-67% off)
US$19.79 / RM49.46
Main story: 31 Hours.
Main + Extras: 46½ Hours.
Completionist: 78½ Hours.
Bonus – Grand Theft Auto Collection (-70%); includes GTA III, GTA IV, GTA: Episodes From Liberty City, GTA: San Andreas, GTA: Vice City
We all are familiar with the name. And this requires no introduction. Grand Theft Auto V is the best GTA to date. If you have not gotten it yet, now is the time to jump in as this might be the highest discount at the moment! The GTA Collection is a huge bonus and value if you decide to complete your Steam library.
The Borderlands Franchise
Borderlands 2 – Game of The Year Edition (-78% off)
US$8.79 / RM16.50
Main story: 32 Hours.
Main + Extras: 74 Hours.
Completionist: 177 Hours.
Bonus – Borderlands GOTY edition (-75%), Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (-70%)
The reviews of Overwhelmingly Positive on Steam need no explanation, as collective players knew Borderlands 2 is the best out of the bunch. Hilarious story with tons of content in the GOTY Edition, this is the definitive Borderlands game! The game is best played with friends, go on to adventures with your friends on the surface of Pandora now!
