Day 2

Don't Starve + Reign of Giants DLC 75% off for $4.74 USD
Like a darker version of minecraft. Darkness without light = death. I've found this game to be quite a challenge, unlike in Minecraft.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent 60% off for $7.99 USD. The Amnesia Collection is also 60% off for $13.99 which contains the second game in the series as well.
This is the only game that I just couldn't play. If you're a fan of horror games that you have 0 weapons in and like solving puzzles, definitely give this one a look. Only on sale for today at the moment, will probably reappear in the summer sale again, but it's not certain.

The Witcher series (1-2) 85% off both titles. Witcher 1 is $1.49 USD and Witcher 2 is $2.99 USD Witcher 3 is also on sale for 10% off at $53.99 USD If you want all 3, The Witcher Trilogy Pack is 27% off for $58.39 USD
Sale lasts for 2 days. Great series. Gryphus and I are currently on the Witcher 2. Not sure how far he is ahead of me, but for the time I've played, it's awesome. A controller will help with gameplay if you have it. I find it very easy to play with one, unlike before when I didn't. 2 days left on this sale. Make sure you READ the REQUIREMENTS for the Witcher 3. It is very GPU intensive.

Portal 2 75% off for $4.99 USD
If you like 3D puzzles, this one is for you. If you haven't heard of this game I'd honestly be surprised. Check it out.

Wasteland 2 50% off for $19.99 USD

Wolfenstein Franchise 40-75% off - Prices vary
One of the oldschool shoot em up. Good stuff.

Ancient Space 75% off for $4.99 USD
Sort of like a 3D FTL. Never played it. Looks very interesting. User reviews on this game are MIXED. So definitely watch some reviews before purchasing.

NBA 2K15 75% off for $14.99 USD
If you like basketball, this one should be right up your alley. Originally priced at $59.99. Sweet deal.

The Hitman collection 80% off for $7.99 USD
The Hitman Collection includes the complete library of Hitman titles ever released for PC, including the Elite Edition of Hitman Absolution - the critically acclaimed, purest Hitman experience yet, along with all the extra downloadable content created for it. GREAT deal if you like these games. If you haven't heard of them, it's worth checking out. I still remember playing Hitman 2 for xbox back in the day :p

Depth 60% off for $9.99 USD
Play as the shark or the diver. I've seen some hilarious videos on youtube of this game. It's definitely worth checking out.

Sorry about missing Day 3. Was busy.

Day 4

Chivalry is now 90% off for $2.49 USD. You can get the complete pack for $3.49 USD which includes Chivalry: Deadliest Warrior. The 4 pack is $7.49 USD.
If you don't have this game, this is probably the last day it's going to be this low for a while. CHECK IT OUT. I bought it (sadly before the 90% off deal) and absolutely love it. If you like it I'd say go ahead and buy a 4 pack and give copies to friends if they seem interested or have been wanting it. It's worth it. Tons of lels to be had.

Far Cry Franchise 50%-75% off. Prices vary.
Really fun series. I played a little of the first one, and it was fun. A lot of people were playing the latest one last time I checked.

Call of Duty Franchise 25%-51% off. Prices vary.

Thief 75% off for $7.49 USD. The THIEF COLLECTION is 75% off for $11.24 USD. Contains all DLCs for the latest Thief and the original 3 Thief games in the series before the latest revision.
My wife has this game and it's really fun. Really immersive and the amount of things you can do is pretty incredible. Everything down from walking so birds don't get spooked and make noise to running across rooftops and doing ninja stuff.

Gauntlet 75% off for $4.99 USD.
They remade the old classic. It's worth checking out. A lot of older guys will probably like this one.

Prototype 2 76% off for $9.59 USD. THE FRANCHISE PACK is also discounted at 76% for a total of $14.39 USD. It comes with the Prototype 2 DLC and the original Prototype game.
I've seen quite a few streamers play this while they had downtime. Seems VERY interesting. You would probably get your money's worth here. Check it out.

The Evil Within 75% off for $14.99 USD.
This game is made by the creators of the Resident Evil series. Looks spooky as hell. Check it out, this game came out late last year, so it's fairly new. If you like horror games, this is probably up your alley.

Left 4 Dead 2 80% off for $3.99 USD.
I'll be the first to say that this game is not my cup of tea, BUT that doesn't change the fact that it's one of the most recognized zombie shootem up games out there. Tons of people still play it because Valve doesn't believe in making a 3rd game in a series for some reason. Check it out. Can't beat the price.

Civilization Franchise 60%-75% off. Prices vary.
If RTS is more your style, then you probably have heard of Civilization. It's worth checking out. It's one of the most well known RTS games, and probably one of the most polished as well.

ArmA 3 35% off for $38.99 USD.
If tactical realism is more your style in a shooter, this will be your go-to. I have ArmA 2, installed 2 mods, and I was good to go. ArmA 3 has improved it's engine and fine tuned a lot of things while adding a lot of content to what was already in ArmA 2 (newer versions of weapons, vehicles, etc). This game has medium-high requirements, so make sure you can run it first if you choose to buy it. If you're on the edge about it, watch some of this guy's videos - https://www.youtube.com/user/Dslyecxi/videos. He's a former marine and plays with the largest group in ArmA. His gameplay is some of the best I've seen in this game. It also has full TrackIR and joystick support. ArmA 3 will get your heart pumping, I guarantee it.

Portal Bundle 75% off for $6.24 USD.
Contains Portal 1 & 2. If you don't know much about this game, it's basically solving 3D puzzles using aperture. The modding community is also big on these games with custom maps etc. Portal 2 is multiplayer, not sure about Portal 1.

Metal Slug 3 75% off for $1.99 USD. Edit: The entire Metal Slug Franchise is on sale from 20%-75% off. Prices vary.
Remember those arcade games with Metal Slug? Sidescrolling run and gun shootem up style thing? Well you can get it on steam now for a measly $2 bucks. Not sure about how long this game will be as far as story time goes, but it's definitely a classic and definitely worth a mention.

Ubisoft Prime Pack 70% off for $59.99 USD.
This pack includes: Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, Child of Light, Far Cry 3, South Park: The Stick of Truth, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist, Trials Fusion, Valiant Hearts: The Great War, and Watch Dogs. This pack is valued at $199.99 USD. I'd definitely check out each one of these games individually before buying it, because I've heard very mixed things about Watch Dogs, and Trials Fusion will probably make you bounce your head off of your desk before punching holes in the wall.

That about wraps it up for Day 4. If you guys find anything I didn't mention post it! Don't let your friends miss out on great games.

Sorry, I meant a critic/reviewer.
You only wrote the essential points. Where it will pike the readers' interest.
Even I, who solemnly swore that I will not log into Steam until the new Elder Scroll comes out..., had to check out the website and look at the games you had posted.

Don't quote my quotes!
