The Steam Summer Sales continues to chug along happily as our wallets collectively cry in misery. From horror, to super heroes, there's pretty much nothing off the table in terms of epic savings. That being said, if you're like me and have a particular soft spot for the Final Fantasy series, then this one is for you!
Steam is offering incredible deals on pretty much every entry into the franchise ... at least those available on PC. From Final Fantasy XV, to my personal favourite with Final Fantasy VII, there are tons of awesome ways to try out the titles you may have missed or revisit fan favourites!
Let's get started!
Since it appears that we are still very far away from getting that highly coveted Final Fantasy VII remake, the original port will have to do!
"In Midgar, a city controlled by the mega-conglomerate Shinra Inc., the No. 1 Mako Reactor has been blown up by a rebel group, AVALANCHE. AVALANCHE was secretly formed to wage a rebellion against Shinra Inc., an organisation which is absorbing Mako energy, destroying the natural resources of the planet. Cloud, a former member of Shinra's elite combat force, SOLDIER, was involved with the bombing of the Mako Reactor."
