For those of you gamers, of course, you are already familiar with the Steam platform. Yup! This game 'store' platform has released a schedule for when Steam games will hold discounts. Listen and don't forget to note the schedule for the 2021 steam sale which will give you a big discount until the end of the year!
a few days ago Valve, the company that oversees Steam, released an official schedule for whenever they will give a big discount or so-called Steam Sale in 2021. The schedule is also quite busy and it looks like starting from October this will continue every month until the end of the year.
For those who don't know, Steam is one of the platforms for buying PC (computer/laptop) games online. Unlike games for consoles that have a physical form such as a DVD or Flashdisk, on Steam we will only get games online (non-physical).
Although not physically given the form of a game like the DVD on the PS5 / Xbox. Ownership of games on the Steam platform is forever (as long as we can log in to our Steam account). PlayStation and XBOX have actually started selling games without physical or so-called Digital versions. And ownership is the same as a Steam account, for life as long as we have the same PlayStation account.
Here's the 2021 Steam Sale Schedule. Discount big games until the end of the year!
In addition to discounts on the main game, big discounts are usually available on add-on games (additional games). In addition to the main game, usually, some games also sell some extra features such as additional maps, extra characters, special storylines, special costumes, etc. to complete the main game sold.
Well, usually these extra features also get a big discount, so you can also pay attention to add-ons in games that we may already have. The following is the complete schedule for the 2021 Steam Sale which will provide big discounts until the end of the year.

Remember the budget and stay wise in shopping!
When there is a big discount like this, our gamer's soul will certainly be very turbulent, especially if our target game is also on discount. But remember well - whether playing this game is a hobby, whether it's for YouTube content or just to unwind. So it would be better if you buy these games only with 'cold' money or money that we really set aside/save for hobbies.
And also make sure you can play the purchased game, don't let it after you buy it you only have time to play it once because you are busy with work/tasks. If indeed you are still busy for the next few months, I suggest you postpone buying the game, because basically, this discount moment will always be there every year, even every month for the end of the year like this.
