The Best Games on Steam – October 2018

Posted by William Sattelberg on September 28, 2018

There is no better time than now to be a PC gamer. Over the past decade and a half, the PC gaming scene has slowly risen from the ashes of the 2000s. Once defeated soundly by consoles from Sony, Nintendo, and even Microsoft, PC gaming has reinvented itself, rising to prominence as a massively-popular way people play games. There’s a dozen or more reasons why PC gaming has become “cool” again, from the widespread availability of AAA games on PC, to the lowered cost of entry for PC parts, to the thrill of building your own computer made of of components purchased through Amazon and Newegg. Slowly but surely, a growing minority of gamers have chosen to build their own desktop gaming PC instead of buying the newest console from the likes of Microsoft or Sony, in order to gain access to higher graphical power, cheaper updates, and perhaps most importantly, the massive library of games offered by Steam.

Steam is the gaming community’s most valuable and vibrant online marketplace for PC gaming, the go-to place for most gamers looking to build a virtual library of titles.  The marketplace, first launched by game development team Valve in 2003, has become known for its massive site-wide sales and for its community of gamers. Though Steam has seen its fair share of controversy since its launch, it’s also been one of the main spearheads behind the success of PC gaming throughout the late 2000s and 2010s, the relaunch of the PC as a successful place for gaming aside consoles like the PS4 and the Nintendo Switch. Without Steam, PC gaming would likely not be where it is today, sitting aside consoles as a viable way to play the biggest games of the year on a regular basis.

As we prepare this article, the traditional fall sale is only a few weeks away, timed to land right around Halloween.
