Whether it's because of the great story, excellent gameplay, or pure meme value, there are some games that leave a mark on their genres and the gaming industry as a whole. This staying power often means that prices don't come down as much as they usually would. That's where Steam sales come to the rescue.

1. Titanfall 2 - 84% off until September 13

Titanfall—and the subsequent Titanfall 2—made massive waves, earning the franchise a dedicated fanbase because of the unique approach to FPS gameplay mechanics, and fast-paced action. Praised by some as one of the best FPS games of all time, Titanfall 2 builds on the solid foundations laid by its predecessor to perfect its iconic mech-riding, parkouring gameplay. 

With great single-player and multiplayer options included, FPS fans that haven't yet played anything from the Titanfall franchise would be remiss to pass up the opportunity to snatch up Titanfall 2: Ultimate Edition at only US$4.79—a whopping 84% discount from the regular price. 

2. Crysis Remastered - 55% off until September 9

If you're new to gaming, and you were wondering why everyone is always making jokes about a device being able to run Crysis, now is your chance to find out . Aside from the meme value, Crysis—and consequently Crysis Remastered—features compelling storytelling and excellent gunplay, while touches like the nanosuit stand the test of time and tie the whole affair together to form one of the best-value remasters in recent memory. 

If you're in the mood to revisit some modern FPS history, or you've never experienced Crysis, you can grab Crysis Remastered at a 55% discount—so only US$13.49—until September 9, 2022. 

Nothing ruins a gaming experience like a membrane keyboard. Upgrade your setup with the EPOMAKER Theory TH80 75% Hot Swappable mechanical keyboard, available on Amazon.

3.Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Ultimate Sith Edition - 65% off until September 8

Often heralded as the best Star Wars game to date, despite being almost 15 years old, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed follows Starkiller as he redefines what can be made possible by using the Force. As Darth Vader's secret apprentice you'll start off on the dark side but make unlikely allies as the story progresses and you learn more about the nature of the Force and the Empire. While no longer in Star Wars canon, the events in The Force Unleashed lead up to and have an impact on the Star Wars mainline movies—namely episodes 4 to 6. 

Being a 2008 release, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed runs on even the most potato systems out there. You can grab Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Ultimate Sith Edition for only US$6.99 until September 8, 2022.
