If you’re like most gamers, you probably download most of your video games from Steam. Adding new titles to your game shelf means more options to choose from, but they can’t be ignored.
What if there was a way you could buy games for relatively less? Of course, we are not talking about discounted winter and summer sales; Rather, we mean buying games from cheaper regions.
The price of Steam games varies by country; As a result, if you change your account region and system, you can save money. Next, we will introduce you to the best Steam regions; So stay with Zomit until the end of the article.
What is Region Steam?
When registering, Steam will determine your region based on the IP address of the system you are using. For example, if you create an account with Turkish IP, the country of your account will be Turkey.
After Steam has specified an account region, the various games will be displayed in the currency of the associated country. As mentioned earlier, Steam has changed the pricing system in several countries, including Turkey and Argentina, and the currency is now displayed in dollars.
By changing the Steam region, you can download and install the desired game at a cheaper price. Also, don’t forget that the download speed of Steam games is related to the region your account is set to.

Now, which country is considered the best option for us Iranians? A region that can be downloaded at a high speed after purchasing the product at a reasonable price. When the IP of Iran and the Steam account are set to the Asian region, the download speed will be higher due to the proximity of the Steam servers to Iran.

Among different countries, Argentina also attracts the opinion of Iranian users. The reason for that is the cheap price of the games offered in this region; Of course, Brazil cannot be ignored.
