Navigating Steam is a bit hard due to the sheer amount of games on the platform but if you're looking for gems under $5 on the Winter Sale, we covered a decade's worth of titles.

Steam has a ton of games and while the good ones are a minority, that still makes for a large number of great titles you can enjoy properly. In fact, there are so many on the Winter Sale that we made a chunky list of fantastic games released between 2009 and 2020 while limiting the price tag to $5 and we are still certain some great games have eluded us.

The reason we didn't include releases from 2021 is that most will take a while until they are discounted to under $5 so we compensated by including 2010. Some honourable mentions on the list will exceed either the release window or the price limit.

All sales are going to expire on January 5, 2022.
