Sid Meier's Civilization V: The Complete Edition
 – 

The One Game To Rule Them All

After hundreds of hours, I'd say Civ V is the most "bang for your buck" game out there.

There is literally no game you can get more mileage off - you can get to a 1000 hours of playing without getting bored and without actually experiencing everything this game has to offer.

If you had to bring only one game with you on a desert island, Civ V would be the one.

Magicka 2
 – 

Perfect For Co-Op

It's short, but has high replayability (you can try different spells combinations and playstyles).

Super-recommended for co-op, however.

Airport Madness 3D: Volume 2
 – 

Fun Little Sim

If you want to have some fun running an airport, without having to deal with a super complex simulation, this is for you.

It has what it needs to be fun, but it doesn't try to be a rigorous sim (with all the micromanagement and minmaxing that follows that).

Graphics are kind of spartan, but on the flip side it runs easily on older computers.

Batman: Arkham Asylum Game of the Year Edition
 – 

Masterpiece

Arkham Asylum is probably the best in the series and even 10 years later it still holds up great. Level design, pacing, the gadgets...

Combat works well, and the difficulty is enough to be challenging but it doesn't punish you so much if you're not an action games fan.

The dark atmosphere is just perfect, and the story writing is second to none.

Age of Wonders III Collection
 – 

Two Games In One

As someone who loved AoW2, I was excited to play the 3 after years away from the series.

The world map turn based strategy is basically a more stronger version of AoW2. Fun factions, lots of things to do, and very strong campaigns.

However, the new tactical battles mode is like a full new game. It makes your army's composition actually relevant, and makes each battle more than just pumping units and hoping in the RNG.

BioShock
 – 

Stands The Test Of Time

BioShock is now pretty old, but it still holds its own.

The atmosphere and gameplay are solid, and the story is top notch. I would recommend playing with mouse/kb, not controller, as the gameplay experience is much worse.

Recommended to really enjoy the sequels story.

Hard West
 – 

Fun Turn-Based Game!

Very good XCom-like game, without RNG. Instead, the probability to hit gets subtracted from a (replenishable) "luck" meter: if you run out, you get hit. Adds interesting luck management mechanics.

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood
 – 

What's better than killing Nazis?

What's better than running around killing Nazis? Maybe.. killing nazi zombies?

The Old Blood is excellent and includes some of the best sections of the franchise.

The Walking Dead: The Final Season
 – 

Worthwhile Ending

A great ending to one of my favorite series ever.

It was touch and go a bit there, with Telltale folding in the middle of the season. But the additional wait made it all the sweeter.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus - Digital Deluxe Edition
 – 

Mastepiece

A more than worthy successor to TNO, killing Nazi around American cities... and then on another planet.

It's great fun to play both guns blazing and more stealthily. The campaign is short and sweet, but you also get to return to visited maps to hunt down named Nazi, letting you experiment with playstyles as much as you want.
