Recommending steam games!

Postby Meowinator » Sat Jan 11, 2014 2:26 am

This recent winter has been big for me. I have discovered this amazing platform that has access to all these amazing games, and sells digital copies of them for amazing prices.
I have discovered Steam. Some of you might call me late. Like... a decade or two late. However, I have decided to hoard as many good games as possible. Question is, with 50 bazillion of games out there, how on earth am I to know which one to buy? I am therefore asking you guys, what game do you really think I should get?

So far, i've gotten TF2, dishonored, dark souls and left for dead.
Anything else?

Im open for any suggestions :D

Maybe if you told us which games you enjoyed playing in the past, we could give you recommendations based on those? :)

Oh, get Portal.

I was actually hoping that people would give me their recommendations, based on their preferences ^^ That way I won't have to limit myself to only my own preferences, and broaden my tastes a bit :3

Portal it is!

So i went down my steam list and put the ones that I think are really worth buying (If it has (M) i.e. multiplayer it's only really worth getting if you have people to play with)

Company of Heroes (You could get 1 or 2 but 2 is basically the same game and 1 is probably cheaper on steam)
Orcs Must Die (1, 2 or both!) (M)
Dungeon Defenders (M)
Papers, please
Project Zomboid
Prison Architect
Sanctum (1 or 2) (M)
Payday 2 (M)
Endless Space
Europa Universalis III (there might be a sequel to this and it's a pretty hardcore strategy game so maybe look into it before you buy :P)
Batman: Arkham Asylum
Batman: Arkham City
Batman: Arkham Origins (Although i havent played this one yet)
FTL: Faster than Light
Hitman: Absolution
Machinarium
Magicka
Civilization 5 (Although i prefer 4, join the TGC multiplayer games!)
Chivalry: Medieval Warfare
Broken Sword (1,2 and 3 are all on steam i think, point and click adventures are boss!)
Like a sir, Gentlife.

EU IV is out. You can play the demo on Steam. :)

Also, not sure why Krimson forgot about ARMA III. Maybe he doesn't like it anymore... Definitely an interesting game if you have friends to play with.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Very attractive strategy game.

Borderlands 2 is pretty great. And all the DLCs. Just say goodbye to your wallet.

ARMA III is really good but its like (M++) i.e. you not only need people to play with you need like 5 - 10 people and a lot of time and some organizational skills :D

Plus it's really not a game I would recommend for everyone, it's pretty clunky in it's controls and the overall feel of the game but in my opinion it makes up for it in customization and game play. However it's defiantly not a game you can just pick up and play.

That said the Day Z (ARMA zombie mod) now has a standalone version that could be good but I haven't played it myself.

I enjoyed the heck out of Faster Than Light. You command a starship in a rogue-like exploration towards your goal, the boss ship that is only 8 sectors away. You can complete a game in a couple of hours, maybe 3 or 4 if you are really slow. It's only, like, five bucks. And it's fun to manage a starship!
