Steam’s latest genre-specific sale is exclusive to sports games. As of yesterday this post has been delayed due to a frozen field, unfortunately until May 22nd you can find discounts on everything from skateboarding to golf, wrestling to fishing and of course lots of fitba.
FIFA23 is 70% off – not an uncommon discount for this time of year as we near the end of the football season (aka fitba) and the next game in the series. I’m more interested in the 40% off Football Manager 2023, 85% off Ubisoft’s Steep racer (£3.89!) and 50% off the physical skate simulator Session.
Unfortunately, there is no discount StreetStep: Basketball of the 21st century. the sports game I want to play the most right now. But then it’s only £8.50/$10, so I’ll probably go for the half-court toss anyway.
IS check out the sale pages himself. You’d either be surprised how many football management games there are that you haven’t heard of, or you’d be surprised how many of them are technically entertainment rather than sports. Then you should buy OlliOlli World, if you haven’t already.
A few weeks ago, after breaking another scoring record, Manchester City forward Erling Haaland said in a post-match interview that he was going to go home, eat something, play video games and go to bed. The interviewer asked him what video game he was currently playing, and Haaland hesitated twice and repeated that it was “too embarrassing” to name.
I’ve been obsessed with it ever since. All footballers play FIFA, so I don’t think it will faze the 22-year-old Norwegian. I’m betting on something anime like Genshin Impact or some deep fantasy or historical strategy like Heroes Of Might & Magic III. But I will never know the truth. Which video game confuses Erling Haaland?
