Can I delete private/var/vm?

So I've been using DaisyDisk to clear my hardware space. Last week, I deleted one of my Steam games which cleared 20 GBs. Since last week, all those storages have been taken by the private/var/vm storage, which is taking up 50GB out of my 128GB Macbook Pro (Retina, Mid-2014, 13-inch)! 


I'm wondering which files I could delete in that folder, because I've deleted as much as I could from my computer, including photos, movies, games, to the point where there is essentially nothing but OSX files.
