In delight of the holiday season, Steam has commenced its annual holiday sale which will run through January 4th.

According to Steam, there are precisely 9989 sales storewide at this very moment, both holiday and non-holiday. And there seems to be a new sale rearing its face every day. Top sellers like Grand Theft Auto V, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, Call Of Duty: Black Ops III and Rocket League range in sales of 30-75% off. The Witcher 2 is only $2.99, which is basically pocket cash. Bottled water can cost more than that. If you want something truly detrimental to your holiday social life, Skyrim is only $4.99. The best part is these aren’t the only games that are at a ridiculously good price. There are thousands more. Thousands.
