Who said you can't have fun under $5? Well I compiled a list of Steam games just under $5. Of course you need to have the Steam client installed on your computer to buy these games.

1. Five Nights at Freddy's

Highly acclaimed by gamers and critics alike, Five Nights at Freddy's is definitely one of the best indie horror games out there. The gameplay is surprisingly very simple. It's a point and click game where you control several cameras where you need to carefully observe the animatronic robots roaming the place at night. You are only given a limited power source so you need to be really mindful and careful on how to use your resources or you will be helpless. It's such a marvel how a simple point and click game gives you a very unnerving feeling of horror.

The fighting however is vastly different. You and your opponent fire countless of "bullets" against each other.

The developer of Super Meat Boy is here to deliver yet again one of the best indie games out there. The Binding of Isaac is a 2d dungeon crawler video game that will remind you a lot of Legend of Zelda. Each level are randomly generated so players won't encounter the same dungeons.

8. Halo: Spartan Assault

Halo: Spartan Assault is a top down shooter action game. The gameplay is a Top Down shooting meaning in displays the same gameplay like that of a dungeon crawler games much like Diablo and Torchlight. Though it's only a single players so it's kind of a let down since it could more fun as a multiplayer game. Either way I still highly recommend this game especially if you're a big Halo fan.

9. Intrusion 2

The Intrusion series will remind you a lot of Metal Slug and Contra. It's a 2d side side scrolling action indie video game. The gameplay and graphics are a lot like Metal Slug. Though unlike Metal Slug, Intrusion 2 doesn't have any multiplayer feature. But like Metal Slug, the gameplay is good and the boss battles are equally fun. It feels like a spiritual successor to the Metal Slug series. A must have game if you love the Metal Slug games.
