The 2022 Steam Lunar New Year has begun! This year's event has kicked off a couple weeks earlier than the 2021 sale, which got underway in mid-February, but we can't say that it caught us my surprise: Like virtually every Steam sale date, we've known about this one for awhile.

Steam's first sale of 2022 features discounts on thousands of games, along with discounts in the Steam Points Shop. Free stickers for your Steam profile will also be given away each day during the sale.

Feeling overwhelmed by options? That's okay—here are some ideas about where to get started:

Speaking of personal favorites, if you see a screamingly good deal on any of yours, do let us know in the comments.

The Steam Lunar New Year Sale runs until February 3. For folks who like to shop around, the Epic Games Store also kicked off its Lunar New Year Sale today—that one is on until February 10.
