Let’s just game through summer
Steam’s Summer Sale has been over since July 5, but if you’re still in the market for some cheap PC games this season GMG’s 2017 Summer Sale just went live. They’re following the old Steam Sale formula of 12-hour flash deals on top of a huge 1,600 game main sale.
As one would suspect, the flash deals are going to be the best prices and nearly all are at their cheapest ever price. The rest of the sale is just as good as Steam or even better pricing.
We’re on batch 2 of GMG’s Flash Deals at the time of writing and are seeing the best price online for XCOM 2, South Park: The Stick of Truth, the Orange Box, Yooka-Laylee, and The Escapists. These six deals all carry instant savings up to 80% off plus a stacking 25% off coupon. We should note that to use coupon codes at GMG you’ll need to login to an existing account or create a new one.
The rest of the main 2017 Summer Sale ignores the coupon code. Even without the code, there are some great deals like the lowest price ever on The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim Special Edition, Stellaris, The Evil Within, and more.
Update 7/22: New batch of flash deals have arrived, with historic low prices such as $34 For Honor, $17 Quantum Break and $20 Hitman: The Complete First Season. As with other flash deals before, every purchase includes a free mystery game as an added bonus (plus a coupon for future purchase).

As an added bonus those who buy one of the flash deals will get extra incentives. First, you’ll get an email worth a 10% off site-wide coupon code. Second, another coupon code valid for upcoming games like the Life is Strange sequel worth 20-25% off. Third, you’ll receive a free random mystery game (generally an indie title, but if you’re lucky you’ll score a free triple-A title).
The GMG flash deals are only valid for 12 hours at a time. The posted batch will only be valid now through 5:00am Eastern. After the flash sale timer is up, the 25% off coupon code will simply stop working and you’ll be left with instant savings only.
The main GMG 2017 Summer sale deals will continue through August 3. That gives you about two weeks to pick up any of the aforementioned titles on the cheap. The sale consists of over 1,600 PC games, so if you had another title in mind it’s probably a search away at GMG.
