Steam Golden Week Sale: Best Games and Deals Available
The Steam Golden Week Sale features many game titles that were developed in Japan or have a Japanese influence in it. Gamers can purchase game titles for half the price.
According to PC Gamer, computer gaming has had a negative reception in Japan, so developers had not catered to developing PC game titles. However, that all changed in recent years and it has been a booming gaming platform for the Japanese market.
As Shacknews added, Steam sales are nothing new; however, the chance of getting Japanese-developed games for the PC is a rarity and novelty. Game titles like the "Yakuza" series, "Dynasty Warriors," the "Final Fantasy" franchise, and more are present in the Steam sale.
With that said, here are some of the best deals that gamers can purchase during this game sale.
