The Escapists
 – 

Wanna bust out of the joint?

The Escapists is ridiculous. Like it's a silly concept, it's funny and it's fun.

Hard West
 – 

Old West tactical rpg with a twist, what?

Simply put, it's cowboys-and-Indians-and-demons-and-zombies X-Com 2. It's hard, if fun and it's got it's own flair that I thoroughly enjoy.

Raiden III Digital Edition
 – 

You like shoot-em-ups?

Yeah? This is a classic then. The Raiden series is old school gameplay done right. Decently cheap too.

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger
 – 

The game that put Arc System Works back on the map

This game kicked off the BlazBlue franchise. It features 13 beautifully hand drawn characters who are all vastly different. That's due to the drive button system, in which the X button ( or A button if using a PS4/XBONE controller) has a unique function to that character. Taokaka has dash atttacks, Jin has ice attacks, the gun chick does her bullet dance tricky combos.... it's pretty wild. This was the spiritual successor to Guilty Gear XX till Xrd came out,m so that should tell you what to expect. Fast paced, super technical fighter.

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood
 – 

More of the same, but less good than W:TNO.

Prequels all have the same problem: we inevitably know how they end. This is no different. Fun game, not as good as The New Order. I don't care though, I got mine free via WGS rewards (thx guys).

Dishonored
 – 

If I could, I'd give it 3.5/5

This game is good, not just ok. It's just not great is all. In a nutshell: Sneaky, steampunk murderous vengeance time.

Spec Ops: The Line
 – 

Whoo boy, morality in war games...

This game is all about the story as one man realizes the horror of war over the course of his mission. The graphics are beautiful, the cover based shooting is nice and the sand makes for some interesting moments and sweet kills. It's too bad there won't be a sequel, because this is a rock solid sleeper hit.

Airport Madness 3D
 – 

Not my cup of tea, but not bad.

Objectively, this not a game I like. That said, this is objectively a good game. I got it free as a bonus on this site (thx, btw), and I'll be honest: I didn't even know airport sims were as popular as they are. I didn't even know the genre was a thing, really. Now that I do, I looked into the series, and I was surprised to learn that not only is this the 7th game in a series, but that series is well loved by a small community. It's a everything you'd expect from a game about air traffic controlling: guide planes from the tower, fly and land them. Not a super realistic sim, but it's not a AAA $80 title, so whatev.

Red Faction: Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered
 – 

The best one in the series

Red Faction 1 and 2 were PS2 games and it shows, the newer one is meh, but this game... dude. Destructible everything (except the ground). Wanna drop a whole building on some fools? DO IT! Because you totally can. Buddy won't pop his head out of cover? Destroy the cover. Plus DLC is included now

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD
 – 

Classic Gameplay in 2.5D

This is a sequel to Lords of Shadow and the story of how the Belmonts got into it with Dracula. They did it up in 3D graphics, but is the sidescrolling Castlevania we've all played before. You should know that this was originally a 3DS game that was ported to PC., though. It kinda shows in places but it doesn't detract.

Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition
 – 

Reminds me of a certain Hero of Time.

Great action, decent puzzle solving. This game has a pretty engrossing story, in keeping with DS1. I never played the original version, but apparently the lighting and balance are better this time around. Hyped for DS3.

TEKKEN 7 Deluxe Edition
 – 

So much better than 6.

TEKKEN fans, all I gotta say is buy this game. It's near-perfect.

For newbies, this is a 2.5D fighter that features fighting styles that are grounded in reality but given that Japanese stylistic flair. If you're all about combos and and tight gameplay, this is your game. If you can't handle tough bosses and strong online community, move on.

The story mode was given extra care and all the previous games' cutscenes are included. Returning characters have made glorious progressions moveset-wise. New characters are mostly over the top (in keeping with Tekken 6's new direction). Can't say anything about the DLC yet, but this game is so good. Soooo good.

XCOM 2: Digital Deluxe
 – 

Do you like unforgiving turn-based strategy games?

Cuz I do. This game is unforgivingly hard and makes use of verticality very well. It's everything that was good about X-Com 1 but bigger. I cut my teeth on the Fire Emblem and Super Robot Taisen series, so I'm somewhat used to rapidly scaling difficulty, but this is hard on another level. I got all the scummy saves.

Wolfenstein: The New Order
 – 

Shooting Nazis is a lot of fun now.

This game def makes up for the last Wofenstein remake and keeps the series back on track as one of the FPS genre's giants. Tight gameplay, super good storlyine, beautiful game all around. The best part is I got it basically free because of WinGameStore's points system.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Ultimate Edition
 – 

New life in a classic series

You know the deal: You're a Belmont, go kill Dracula. But now you stake his vampire ass in 3D. It's a pretty solid action game and I appreciate the DLC being included with the base game now that it's a little older. There's a certain game about killing Greek gods that this will definitely remind you of, while keeping all of the classic Castlevania elements in tact.

L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition
 – 

Always going to revisit this game.

I had so much fun playing this when it came out on 360 years ago. Now that I'm on PC I find that I'm slowly reacquiring all of my old favs, this game included. The look and feel of 1930s LA are so authentic. The city isn't as populated and life like as Los Santos, but the people and your interactions with them are simply beautiful.The dialog captures the era like you were watching old movies. The sleuthing is so much fun. Chasing guys down and brawling never gets old. The music is a perfect 5/7. Sets the mood without being obnoxious. This game is a wonderful experience top to bottom.

Gothic® 3
 – 

Scratches my RPG itch nicely enough...

But it's not as satisfying as say a Dragon Age: Origins or a Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, either.It's a little buggy and it's got issues with combat and voice work, but it's not bad. You ever pick a game that's just ok at best, but you go all in on it anyway? That's this game. Get it on sale to get your true money's worth.
