Every so often, usually on weekends, Steam gives us an awesome sale on some of the games we love the most. I’ve picked up so many great games for $5 or less on Steam over the years. It’s a fantastic way to build your video game collection. This weekend for one day only, the Jedi Knight Collection will be only $4.99 on Steam. This is an amazing steal for everything you get!
