Get these great games for under $10 during Steam’s Puzzle Fest sale
Two robots from Portal 2.

There are few gaming experiences that can surpass the feeling of overcoming a challenge in a puzzle game. Whether it's getting first place in Tetris 99 or cracking a mind-bending word combination in Baba is You, puzzle games can bring the most satisfaction out of any game genre out there. That's why it's great to see Steam celebrating the genre with a dedicated sale.
Between now and May 1, lots of notable titles are discounted during Steam Puzzle Fest, giving you a good opportunity to stack your PC library with some incredibly clever games. What's more exciting, though, is that many of the best games featured during the sale cost less than $10. At that price point, you'll find some genre-defining classics and recent hits that are worth checking out. If you're looking for some new games to pick up during the Steam Puzzle Fest, these are some games that you shouldn't ignore -- and the whole batch will only cost you around $60.
Portal and Portal 2 -- $1.48

Kicking off this list, we two of the most iconic puzzle games of all time. Portal, while extremely short, was quite mind-blowing at the time of its release because of how it got players to "think with portals." It included a variety of puzzles that could be solved by placing portals, which players could move themselves and objects through. Portal 2 offers more of that already great formula, with lots of new puzzles to solve, hysterical writing, and an excellent co-op mode that can be enjoyed with a friend.
The Portal games are some of the most tightly designed first-person puzzle games out there, and they are centered around a mechanic that still feels novel to this day. Both Portal and Portal 2 are just $1 each during this puzzle game sale (or you can pick up the Portal Bundle for $1.48). Any fan of the genre owes it to themselves to pick these games up if they somehow haven't played them already.
Dorfromantik -- $9.79

7 excellent game deals you can’t miss during Steam’s Xbox publisher sale
Raz runs on a colorful stage in Psychonauts 2.

Like a lot of modern gamers, I'm an Xbox Game Pass subscriber. I get a lot out of the subscription service, using it to play everything from Microsoft's first-party exclusives to smaller indie sensations like Citizen Sleeper. There's just one downside to that: I don't own any games I play on it. If Microsoft decided to pull a game like Forza Horizon 5 one day, I'd have to shell out if I ever wanted to continue my progress. It's a peculiar side-effect to the gaming subscription era, one that still makes me eager to buy any Game Pass title I love.

If you're in the same boat as me, Steam can help. The PC storefront is currently running an Xbox Publisher Sale, which features major discounts on some of Microsoft's biggest titles. From now until May 4, you'll find heavy hitters like Halo Infinite and Gears 5 discounted. What's particularly eye-catching is that tons of excellent games are currently on sale for $20 or less -- with some of Xbox's best exclusives selling for as low as $5. If you're looking to buy some of your favorite Game Pass titles, here are seven deals you should know about (you can grab all of them for just over $86).
Psychonauts 2 -- $20.39
