Your paycheck is forfeit: the Steam summer sale has begun!

Valve's annual Summer price slashing bonanza has begun on Steam, and as usual there are a large number of great games being offered at highly discounted prices. Today is only the first day, more deals are of course incoming.

First and foremost, 2K Games is offering 50% off of Bioshock: Infinite. There is also Left 4 Dead 2, Hotline Miami, and Scribblenauts Unlimited for 75% off. 4X strategy game Endless Space: Emperor Edition, shooter-MMO Defiance, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive are all 66% off.

There are also a bunch of good racing games on sale with Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit and Need for Speed: Shift 2 all for 50% off as well as Grid 2 for 40% off.

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is also 33% off, and while it may not offer the deepest savings, it's one of the most tempting games on offer. Although Antichamber for 66% off is mighty tempting as well.

Discounted titles that offer Steam Badges are also prominently marked.

It almost goes without saying that this list of deals only scratches the surface of what is available today, and what will be available over the course of the week, so check out the full list for yourself on Steam and keep an eye on the deals over the next day because the Summer Sale runs until July 22.
