From Fallout to Stalker, GOG's 'Post-apocalyptic Sale' has some strong discounts on well-reviewed PC games (1)

No doubt celebrating the good reception that the new Fallout TV show has had, I've spotted that GOG has launched a week-long post-apocalyptic sale that discounts many games that offer some sort of 'the world's gone to s**t' setting, from irradiated wastelands to zombie apocalypses.

I've played many of these games, too, making it easy for me to make some recommendations, which I thought might be useful for anyone in the PC gaming community who, beyond the Fallout series, could be looking for something a bit different. As such, here are but a few of the discounted games available now that I think it could be worth checking out.

From Fallout to Stalker, GOG's 'Post-apocalyptic Sale' has some strong discounts on well-reviewed PC games (2)

Days Gone | $12.65/£10 (75% off)
A cracking open-world zombie survival game with plenty of explosive action and, neatly for someone like me who rides and loves motorcycles, some epic motorcycle vehicle fun, too.

Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl | $3.15/£2.49 (75% off)
Most the Stalker series is on sale right now, but the OG classic first-person shooter with surivial horror atmosphere is a great introduction. That bit with the Controller mutant still spooks me!

Kenshi | $9.19/£2.49 (60% off)
If you like the sound of a vast, post-apocalypse survival sandbox, then Kenshi will appeal. Under its not particularly pretty visuals is a game of deep depth, where you can do what you want.
