Valve launched its first-ever Steam Lunar New Year Sale today, marking the Year of the Monkey in the Chinese zodiac with a vast array of discounts.

There's a Choose Your Own Adventure component to the sale, with Steam users being asked a question that leads to lists of either "aquatic" or "driving" games that are on sale. The discounted aquatic titles include the first two BioShock games (each $3.99, 80 percent off), while Project CARS ($19.99, 60 percent off) is one of the driving games that's part of the promotion.

The sale also cuts prices on some major franchises, including Tomb Raider, Fallout and XCOM. Fallout 4, which came out in November, is available for $40.19 (33 percent off), while 2013's Tomb Raider is on sale for $4.99 (75 percent off).

Valve is kicking off the sale a few days before the actual beginning of the 2016 Lunar New Year, which is Monday, Feb. 8. Steam's Lunar New Year Sale will run until 10 a.m. PT on Feb. 12.
