BioShock Infinite will no doubt be in the running for Best Game of 2013. That’s why it’s a huge deal to find the PC download version less than half price only four months after its March release date. It entered the Steam Summer Sale as a Daily Deal for $29.99. As if half off weren’t enough of a discount, Green Man Gaming beats Steam’s deal, matching that 50% discount and stacking a 20% off coupon code to yield a $24 final price. That’s the lowest price we’ve seen for the game! [Update: The coupon deal ended but BioShock Infinite's Season Pass is now only $14.]

Today Steam’s classic Summer Sale returns for 2013, chock full of Daily Deals, Flash Deals, and numerous other discounts. Although Green Man Gaming’s superior BioShock Infinite deal may temper the Steam frenzy, most of today’s ten Daily Deals do make the current best prices online. The sale ends July 22nd, with Daily Deals refreshed daily (surprise!) and a new round of Flash Deals debuting every eight hours.

In case you’re not satisfied with the Steam Summer Sale, GamersGate has their own seasonal discounts going on with four Daily Deals refreshed every 24 hours, along with six bundle offers refreshed on a weekly basis. The GamersGate sale revved up on Monday, July 8th, and outlasts the Steam Sale, ending on August 15th.

Check the full spreadsheet below for a price comparison on the Daily Deals and Flash Sales. We’ll be updating this spreadsheet on a daily basis, so check back daily for new hot deals until the Steam 2013 Summer Sale ends July 22.

Update: The daily deals will also be updated below from time-to-time, but the latest info will always be on the spreadsheet embedded above :)

Steam Daily Deals (Or Better)

BioShock Infinite — $24 at Green Man Gaming after coupon. It’s $30 at Steam during the Summer Sale. Why pay $6 more for the same Steam key?
 

Scribblenauts Unlimited (PC Download) — $4.99 at Steam. Amazon is price matching with $4.99 too. You can use a 15% off code but its one-time use only, probably best reserve it for a higher price game?

Endless Space: Emperor Edition — $10.19 at Steam. Next best is $30 at Amazon. Lowest price on this game.
 

Don’t Starve — $8.99 at Steam. List is $15. Lowest price on this game.
 

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger — $8.53 at Amazon after coupon. Next best is $10 at Steam. Use the coupon code “gooncave” to get the full discount (coupon takes an extra 15% off). The coupon is one-time-use only.
 

Left 4 Dead 2 — $4.99 at Steam. Next best is $20 at Amazon. Left 4 Dead 2 has been cheaper at $3.99 during a Gamefly sale, just in case you want to wait for a better deal.
 

Hotline Miami — $2.12 at Amazon. The Amazon coupon is one-time-use only, since you’re only saving $0.37 you might want to just go with the Steam price of $2.49.
 

Toki Tori 2+ — $9.89 at Steam. Normally $15. Interesting enough, Toki Tori 2+ released today and already has a discount. This is one of those puzzle adventure games without tutorials or hints to baby you along the way. Instead you’ll have to trudge on all by your lonesome (or else cheat and look for answers online).

More Summer Deals

Today GamersGate features 4 Daily Deals: Torchlight for $3.74, Ravaged for $2.50, Euro Truck Simulator 2 for $10.18, and Dominions 3 for $7.49. Additionally, there are six bundle offers this week valid until July 14th.

The Walking Dead: 400 Days (PC DLC) — $4 at Green Man Gaming after coupon. List is $5. The followup to the Season 1 DLC pack, 400 days released last week on July 3rd. Even though it’s only $5, you might as well save a buck and grab it for 20% off after GMG’s coupon code.

Battlefield 3 Premium Edition — $16.99 at Amazon. Next best is $40 at Green Man Gaming. One time use coupon only, so make sure you want to buy this game. Once the coupon is claimed, you can no longer get the 15% discount on other titles. Activates on Origin.
