These 11 excellent Steam Sale videos will prepare your wallet for the apocalypse

Steam Sale

By on June 19, 2014 at 5:46 pm

The Steam Sales (starting tonight!) have ceased just being a great excuse to buy cheap games, and instead turned into a sort of terrifying seasonal force to be feared and kept at bay by regular sacrifices.

It’s hard to know quite when this transformation occurred, but somewhere along the line somebody started making hilarious YouTube videos about it, and now no Steam Sale is complete without one.

Mostly for my own amusement and convenience, I’ve rounded up my eleven favourites below. Perhaps you will sit and watch them with me as we huddle in terror at the approach of our lord.

Once upon a time…

…somebody put Patta LaBelle’s “Ready for a Miracle” and an amazing Photoshop of Gaben together. Like Dr. Frankenstein, they did not know what they were about to unleash — but generations of Steam Sale video makers owe them a debt they can never repay.

Now I can’t even hear “Ready For A Miracle” without frantically looking for my wallet.

And then of course we have the fine, fine tradition of dubbing over existing lame movies and TV shows with awesome Steam Sale celebrations, like so…

And this one..

And this brand-new Lord of the Rings one which is most excellent

Plus of course this Evan Almighty deleted scene:

And the inevitable Simpsons edition…

And you know, I’m not even sure what this one is but I like it:

This one’s technically for the Steam Holiday Sale, not the Summer sale, but it’s just so heartwarming, dammit.

This one reminds us that prices are in fact quite low:

And finally, no mention of Steam Sale videos is complete without this amazing three-minute epic. Crank it up.
