The 5 Best Games To Pick Up In The Steam British Academy Games Awards Sale

The 14th British Acedemy Video game awards is taking place tonight (Thursday 12th April 2018), and here at BacklogCritic, we just love helping you add to your pile of shame, so we are going to run down the best 5 games to pick up during Steam’s British Academy Game Awards Sale.

5) Hollow Knight34% off @ $9.89

Team Cherry’s first project, Hollow Knight, is a sprawling Metroidvania that applies the best elements of the Souls series to create a unique game. Those elements are a curse and a blessing, also being ultimately responsible for some of Hollow Knight’s shortcomings.

4) Night In the Woods30% off @ $13.99

Night in the Woods is focused on characters and exploration. While the story lacks a real plot, Mae, Gregg and Bea will most likely steal your heart in a way that will make it impossible to stop playing. Even if all the days seem to blend into a lazy autumn atmosphere.

3) Sniper Elite 466% off @ $20.39

Sniper Elite 4 is a real AAA experience for all the right reasons, the single player mode alone makes Sniper Elite 4 worthy a purchase both for any fans of the series and adrenaline junkies alike.

2) What Remains of Edith Finch30% off @ $13.99

What Remains of Edith Finch is a short yet intense walking simulator with a rich story. Definitely worth playing for artistic value, fun game mechanics and brilliant writing. The only downside is that the game probably won’t take you more than three or four hours to complete.

1) Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus50% off @ $29.99

If you really enjoy high paced, high action shooters, then you will have already known this is a game for you. Even if you are new comer to the genre, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus has lower difficulties that will let you get to grasps with the gameplay to begin with, but then ramp it up gradually as you get to grips with how FPS tend to work.
