There are quite a few surveys out there that talk about PC gaming and how its more popular today than ever before – even when compared to console gamers. in fact, a study in 2016 was done that said there were 1.8BILLION gamers on earth and 62% of those gamers accounted for PC players. That is quite a lot! If you put it into perspective that equals out to about 1.2 billion people that play on PC! Whether these people are fantastic or they just play every so often cannot actually be gauged. As of right now, there are 2 big players in PC gaming – Steam and Battle.net. People seem to like each option for different reasons. On this specific article, I’ll be covering steam… for now!
On Gamers Elite I try to give you guys variations on gaming. Not just variations on genres, but also all the different ways that people play games.

Also, don’t forget guys, if you sign up for Amazon Prime you get FREE 2-day shipping on millions of items and there is no maximum order size for this either. Here’s a link to sign up.

Just Cause is another favorite series of mine. After buying the 3rd one and liking it so much, I bought the other games to add them to my collection. Really glad to see it as a Steam Games Sale though that way everyone can try it out – its really CHEAP right now so get it while you can!
While all of these games are on the Steam Games Sale list for Gamers Elite, don’t forget that you can save even more when you try out Amazon Prime. So many people, especially gamers, use Amazon Prime. Not only can you get 2-day free shipping and handling for your games (and any other items) but sometimes they have specials where you can get an additional discount on games such as pre-orders. Its definitely something to consider.
Thanks for checking out this Steam Games Sale! I try to do a few of these a week for different platforms.
