The Witcher 3 artwork for Ciri in Skellige

If you're looking for an interesting game too cuddle up with over the cold winter months, you'll be pleased to hear that Steam's massive Autumn sale has now arrived! As is tradition, it brings with it an absurd amount of games on sale, as well as the ability to vote for The Steam Awards nominees. The actual voting for the best games of the year will happen during the Steam Winter Sale, but even so I'd say it's important to vote for your favorites and make sure that quality games and developers are celebrated.

As for the sale itself, allow me to give you a couple of suggestions spread out across a variety of genres. Here are some of the standout deals, in no particular order:

• Total War: Warhammer 2 - 66% off
• Mass Effect Trilogy - 50% off 
• Resident Evil 2 - 60% off 
• Vermintide 2 - 75% off 
• Hollow Knight - 50% 
• Doom - 70% off 
 Slime Rancher - 70% off 

All of these are games that I've played through and enjoyed immensely, so if they seem even remotely interesting to you, I'd heartily recommend giving them a go. That said, I would also advise browsing through the store yourself and taking a look at some of the smaller games out there. That's pretty much how I found Hollow Knight which ended up being one of my favorite Metroidvania games out there, so it's definitely worth the time to take the plunge and see what there is to see.

Both The Steam Awards nominations and the Autumn Sale will run until December 1st, so you should have plenty of time to get everything done. Have fun with all of the new games!
