    For game lovers, it's usually a rush to find a big discount on something they really want to buy, and with Computer (PC) games you usually don't have to wait long for the next Steam sale to get what you want. But it's also exciting to play a game that didn't cost much to start and find out how much you love it.



    The best cheap PC games can hold your attention for months. Cheap doesn't necessarily mean short or simple. Sometimes the most creative indie games are cheap, and some classics from the 90s and 2000s can be bought as a song, even outside of big sales. But now that there are so many cheap games on Steam, ranking them can be exhausting. That's where this guide comes in: it's a collection of the best cheap games we've reviewed and written about, broken down into categories to help you find something to play. If you're on a tight budget, these games are perfect for you. Without further ado, let's get started!

    5 essential games

    If you're looking for a cheap game to play, regardless of genre, these deserve your attention.

    Village romance

    Source: Official game page on Steam

    Price: R$20,69 on Steam

    A calming puzzle game where you build villages by placing hexagonal pieces one after the other. There are light goals and high scores if you like, or you can just click on the tiles to build very nice little towns and feel at peace.



    A short hike

    Price: R$16,59 on Steam

    With vibes similar to Animal Crossing, A Short Hike is a little game about exploring a beautiful lo-fi island. Talk to other characters, walk, fly. Enjoy the journey, you know?

    Doom 64

    Source: Official game page on Steam

    Price: R$9,95 on Steam

    A great modern version exclusive to the Nintendo 64, with completely different levels and vibes than the classic Doom. It's sinister! It looks like a bizarre alternate universe Doom, but even in an alternate universe Doom rocks.

    Dishonored

    Source: Official game page on Steam

    Price: R$29,99 on Steam

    A fantastic immersive simulator, Dishonored is an action game that offers deep choice in how you traverse the environment and defeat your enemies, lethal or not. Get creative and enjoy one of the coolest settings in PC gaming.

    Terraria

    Source: Official game page on Steam

    Price: R$19,99 on Steam

    A ridiculously good game for a sandbox that you can invest years in. Terraria started out a bit like a 2D Minecraft, but has grown into an elaborate sandbox RPG with massive quests. Even cheaper if you split a 4 pack with friends.



    Multiplayer

    Looking for something to play with (or against) friends? So let's go!

    Halo 3

    Source: Official game page on Steam

    Price: R$49,99 on Steam

    The peak of Halo's multiplayer and one of its best co-op campaigns.

    drawful 2

    Source: Official game page on Steam

    Price: R$19,99 on Steam

    Perhaps the best Jackbox party game ever. Draw funny pictures with your friends.

    Portal 2

    Source: Official game page on Steam

    Price: R$20,69 on Steam

    The campaign lasts all the time, but you have to stick around for the brilliant co-op campaign puzzles and hence so many good fan-made levels.

    Gunfire reborn

    Source: Official game page on Steam

    Price: R$24,89 on Steam

    A new co-op shooter, a bit like a roguelike Destiny or Borderlands. Fantastic weapons and abilities, still evolving in Early Access.

    Among Us

    Source: Official game page on Steam

    Price: R$10,89 on Steam

    The 2020 escape game can run on a potato and happens to be a fantastic take on the werewolf “hidden identity” game. Don't trust any of your friends.



    Left 4 Dead 2

    Source: Official game page on Steam

    Price: R$20,69 on Steam

    Another Valve classic. All of their campaigns are great for co-op replay, but head over to the Steam Workshop for endless options. Shoot zombies 4ever.

    Action

    These action games and roguelikes can be over in an hour or just a few minutes, but they're made to keep pulling you back over and over again.

    FTL

    Nuclear Thrones

    Price: R$24,89 on Steam

    One of the great action roguelikes, this top-down shooter offers tons of fun characters to try out, and the shooting is deliciously choppy.

    Classics

    Some of the best PC games from the 90s and early 2000s that we still recommend to anyone.

    Quake

    Our favorite Fallout is packed with tons of interesting missions and characters throughout Las Vegas.

    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II – The Sith Lord

    Broken sword

    A classic point-and-click adventure that still holds up in 2021.

    Final Fantasy 7

    Price: R$19,99 on Steam

    The remake isn't on PC yet, but you can grab the original on Steam. Definitely get a fancy AI mod too.

    short stories

    These modern indie classics and adventure games may seem small, but they tell big and unique stories that will stay with you.

    Undertale

    Source: Official game page on Steam

    Price: R$19,99 on Steam

    What briefly seems like a simple RPG turns into a sad, funny and heartbreaking adventure. And what ending.

    As an immigration inspector, it is your job to examine passports and refuse those who break the law. Prepare to be faced with increasingly uncomfortable decisions as a story develops from this simple premise.

    West of Loathing

    Source: Official game page on Steam

    Price: R$29,99 on Steam

    One of the funniest games of all time and a surprisingly complete RPG to play. It also features "over 50 hats" and "a drunk horse". (Actually, it's a roughly 40-hour RPG, but easy to play.)

    Her story

    Source: Official game page on Steam

    Price: R$20,69 on Steam

    Her Story ushered in a new era of creative little story games with a brilliant design that makes you assemble a story non-linearly from an archive of interview clips.

    The Lion's Song

    Source: Official game page on Steam

    Price: R$24,99 on Steam (Season Pass)

    One of our favorite modern adventures, a set of connected episodes set in early 20th century Austria. This is art that has something to say about art, with stories that follow a musician, a painter and a mathematician. In the end, it brings them together and incorporates the choices you made in each previous episode.
