Looking for a surefire way to distract yourself from back-to-school shopping? These deals on PC games are your ticket to hours of stationary-but-interactive virtual pseudo-productivity! Two of these games even rank amongst the top 100 PC games of all time! From Doom 3 to a pay-what-you-wish PC game bundle for charity, you'll want to make sure either your desktop or PC gaming laptop is at the top of its class. (We had to bring it back to back-to-school!)

    Is It Worth It?: Celebrating the franchise built on the 1993 science fiction horror-themed, first-person shooter video game, this PC game bundle is three times the doom: Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil, The Lost Mission, and the original Doom and Doom II games.

  2. Bioshock Triple PackBioshock Triple Pack for Windows

    Price: $34.99
    Lowest By: $65

    Is It Worth It?: The latest Bioshock game alone goes for $60, but this Editors' Choice triple pack bundle is about half that price! The original Bioshock created an amazing world that fans continue to want to explore; making this bundle of Bioshock, Bioshock 2, and Bioshock Infinite a must-buy for fans. Note that Steam is required to activate these games.

    Is It Worth It?: This Editors' Choice PC game sale offers up prices that recall the days of an arcade and a small stack of quarters. Each of these games is at least 25 cents off, and as much as $12 off. (Most are also at or near the best price we've seen; for further comparison, we saw some of the Fallout titles for a buck more earlier today.) Of note, most of these games require Steam to activate and play, and a limited number of titles remain available.

And with this Editor's Choice pick, you're saving 75% off the retail price of $39.96. Pretty awesome, right?! Green Man Gaming also extends additional 20% off on other 4-pack video game downloads for Windows via coupon code "GMG20-4B9NY-L4FEN".

    Is It Worth It?: Decisions, decisions: How much to pay for this humble Editors' Choice from Humble Bundle? Well, it turns out that the more you pay, the better the bundle gets! A minimum of $1 gets you Saints Row 2, Saints Row: The Third, Risen 2: Dark Waters, and Sacred 2 Gold. Pay more than the average, currently $4.93, and you'll get Dead Island: Game of the Year Edition and Saints Row: The Third Full Package DLC as well (a low by $38). Pay at least $25, and you'll also get Dead Island: Riptide, (a low by $38). And it's gaming for good cause, as your contribution can be donated to charity (Child's Play or the American Red Cross), the developers, or both. Don't forget the Steam account to activate these games.
