We have purged our previous list from the Steam Winter Sale 2017. This list is refined to the absolute essential games for PC gamers.

You may notice that the Steam Summer Sale 2018 Must play games list does not contain any Ubisoft games. That’s because Ubisoft has priced the games quite steeply in India. You may actually find a better deal on third-party stores.
