PC game download deals for November 5-7 and beyond: 'GTA,' 'Sims 3,' 'Football Manager'
Friday 05 November 2010
All but the latest
Grand Theft Auto games for $7.50 / €7.50,
Football Manager 2011 for £24 in the UK, and
The Sims 3 for under $20 are among current download deals for PC gamers.
That's a significant amount of playing time per dollar, euro or pound: The Grand Theft Auto pack is five games full, including the transition from birds-eye view of GTA 1 and 2 to GTA III's revolutionary 3D sandbox city; The Sims 3 is part of the PC's best selling franchise; and Sports Interactive's Football Manager games are well known for being formidable timesinks with a compulsive edge.
Also of note are the deliciously twisted Overlord (for those who miss Halloween already), and another absolute classic from Good Old Games, who have Icewind Dale 2 updated and ready for modern computers.
