I just finished Mark of the Ninja (yes I´m late) and it was amazingly good. Really great game

Also, Supreme Commander. It´s quite nice if you have a thing for RTS

I've played all of the games in that (spiritual) succession:
- Total Annihilation (and sequels and add-on packs): lots of fun
- Supreme Commander (with Forged Alliance or without, the best of the lot)
- SupCom 2 (dumbed down SupCom)
- Planetary Annihilation (crashed on me the first couple of times I tried to launch a game... I'll get back to it again in a few more patch cycles)

It's funny, I know have a whole set of games that I'm waiting for them to grow playable.
- PA (as mentioned above)
- Star Forge (extremely rough)
- Kerbal Space Program (already playable and fun... still growing)
- Galactic Civilizations 3 (you can play the conquest game, but no ship editor, crashes)
- Kinetic Void (progressing)
- Space Engineers
- Star Citizen (Roll)
- X Rebirth (ughh)

You're looking into AAA games, you should really look below that.

"great" games:
Eve-Online
South Park: The Stick of truth
DoTA 2 (Wanna play!? :) )
The Walking dead (Season One and Two!)
The Wolf Among Us
XCom: Enemy Unknown (and all DLCs)
Fallout: New Vegas (search net for mods :) )

"great" Indie games:
FTL
Plague Inc
Bastion
Prison Architect
Binding of Issac
Mark of the Ninja
Robocraft (Like Legos? Like World of Tanks? Likes lots and lots of guns? Space pewpew? All in one!)

All I can think of right now. :)

I spent 41 hours on South Park: SoT. Most of the time just exercising my "dragon shouts" to hear Cartman laugh from afar. It's as though he knew a giant flatus had occurred without even being present.

Lately the games I've been playing and have enjoyed have been,


Fable: The lost Chapters, If you get it one Steam there's a collector edition, but that is waay overpriced for a OG xbox game.

FTL has been addicting, and I can play it in tandem with EVE. =P Just pause whenever you're busy.

Bioshock, I dunno how many times I've replayed this series, I love it.

Darksouls, and Darksouls 2, If you want a really good PVE experience go for DsK, if you want a good PvP experience go for DsK2

Megaman Legends 1 and 2: MLone was the first game I completed when I was a kid, put the current hard copies on Ebay are rather expensive. =(

Tombaa 2, I love this game, if you can get it somehow, do it. It's rare however and kinda expensive. =\ I have one still though! (V)whahahaha.


DCS World is a great sim game, nothing says stress relief like blowing stuff up in a A-10. It's a rough start though, you literally need to know how to fly a real A-10 to play the game. But once you get it, it's amazingly fun,

I also play some shooters as a quick mindless sorta fun, Insurgency, Arma, and such are great fun.

Also any Bethesda games, like Elder Scrolls and Fallout, the mod support for those games is amazing, once you get a bunch of mods the entire game is different and it's like you're playing something new.

Good luck with that. What a huge disappointment. Albion Prelude or Terran Conflict aren't bad if you've got the patience though.

If you dont mind old games i would suggest Heroes of Might and Magic 3 (yes the third one, even if there is several after it).
Great when you just need to kill some time, and its entertaining enough to last for years (played it on and off when bored for about 10 years). Wow i feel old... Lol

The Thief series is also a lot of fun, enjoyed those quite a bit but i have not tried the newest one.

The Witcher (the first one, the second one does not like my computer) is another great game that i have replayed a couple of times over the years.

I can't like this post enough. A-10 is great and all but I still like mah Su-25 Frogfoot. The huey is great fun too. DCS has the best helicopter flight model I have ever played with.

And how about that upcoming MiG-21!!! Cool

I thoroughly enjoyed SupCom and FA. Haven't played 2, and probably won't, because...it's bad, according to 90% of everything I've read/seen on it.

I'll second KSP. It's...good, for the moment, and you can do a lot of stuff with it where it's at now, but without mods, there's just a lot of B.S. that the game gets away with (e.g. the vanilla aeronautics lift v drag mechanics are hilaribad; you need Ferram Aerospace to make that work; Kerbal Attachment makes mods any place other than the launch pad possible; so on). By the time one gets the mods set up to an acceptable level, the game gets really bogged down. But it has a great deal of potential, and I'm keeping an eye on it to see how it develops. Certainly, I have more hope for it than Star Jita Scam Citizen.

The other thing about KSP is it really gets you really jaded about sci-fi spaceflight models and ship design.

Lol My thoughts exactly.

But why are there no great fantasy MMO games?

I mean look at how amazing and polished Eve is now. We also have some space MMOs with great potential coming out like Star Citizen, and one I'm really hoping does good, No Man's Sky.

Why is almost every fantasy MMO game complete crap? I want a sword and sorcery MMO that isn't anything like WoW. Mortal Online still has potential, but the graphics and the gameplay seem to hold it back for me. I've been looking for a great fantasy MMO for a long time and I can't find nuthin, mang. Anyone got any suggestions?
