The annual Steam Summer Sale has begun, with nearly every game on Steam available at discounts ranging from 10% to 90%.

Steam Sale Main Page

Since Video Games and the Bible has reviewed quite a few of the titles being discounted (and still has some to preview/review), I decided to create a page of these games and their current (discounted) price.

Remember, every game purchased supports the developer to create more and
the sale only lasts until July 1 (Monday)!
