Steam Summer Sale Experiment

Right, I’ve preached evangelical for a while now on here and other places about how much cheaper games on the PC are, and how much I’ve been looking forward to the Steam Summer Sale. With the sale starting tomorrow (at the time of writing) I’ve decided to conduct a kind of experiment. Given that I’ve got £60 in my Steam Wallet, which would get me a couple of games on a console (three at a push), I want to see just what I can get for my money.
