Community's Choice, where you vote on the next discounted games

In the Community's Choice sale, Steam users can choose between two sets of games and vote on which goes on sale next. Every three votes will earn you a Summer Adventure trading card. The first two bundles include:

  • Action - RPG with 7 Days to Die, South Park: The Stick of Truth, Torchlight 2 and The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2
  • Indie - Great Soundtrack with Dust: An Elysian Tail, Fez, Trine 2 and Valdis Story: Abyssal City

Valve is also sponsoring the Summer Adventure alongside the sale. Those who collect all of the sale's 10 trading cards — by purchasing $10 worth of games, crafting badges, voting in the Community's Choice sales, trading or purchasing them in the Community Market — will be able to craft a Summer Adventure badge to commemorate their achievement. That'll grant crafters an emoticon, a profile background and more.

Everyone can also join a virtual team by crafting a badge or clicking a Steam link. Once randomly assigned, 30 members of each team who contributed to their team's goal that day will win three games from their Wishlist. You can get the full details on Steam's official FAQ.
