Today we welcome the winter solstice, an official beginning to those months of the year when the weather outside is frightful and we must turn inward to pass the time until spring. For us gamers, however, this is the prime time of the year to catch up on those games we meant to play but didn't get to. The fine folks at Steam understand this well and bring us a great annual tradition to help us get started. PC gamers, the Steam Winter Sale has begun!

Since this is Dead Entertainment's first Steam sale, it only seems fitting to celebrate by taking a look at some of the best horror deals to start off your winter right.
