Awesome Steam Summer Sale Kicks Off with Big Discounts

If you need to beef up your games collection, now is the time to do it. Steam's annual summer sale is in full effect, and that means big savings on some top-notch titles from now through July 22, 2012. We're not talking minor reductions here either, but major discounts that include 75 percent off Portal 2 ($4.99), 50 percent off Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 ($29.99), and 88 percent off the Sega Hit Collection ($49.99), to name just a few.

There's something for everyone, from indie titles to blockbuster hits, and everything in between. New deals are highlighted every day, and you can vote on a 'Community Choice' discount every 8 hours. Today's Community Choice pick is Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, which has been marked down 75 percent to $2.49. The next Community Choice pick will be Rage for 66 percent off, Darkness II for 75 percent off, or Assassin's Creed Revelations for 66 percent, depending on which one receives the most votes.

In addition, Steam has a right-hand column that consists of Flash Sales, which represent a handful of deeply discounted titles for a limited time.
