I have been collecting various Steam games, and have even hit the threshold to have a scrolling list. So just what have I ended up with ?
- Bad ideas = Borderlands2. Crusader Kings 2. Post Apocalyptic Mayhem. Sengoku. Star Ruler.
- Never played = Gal Civ 2 (at least, on Steam). Gettysburg. GTA IV. Mafia. Patrician III. Skyward Collapse. Space Trader – Merchant Marine. Tank Universal. X-Com : Enemy Unknown.
- Extensive Play, not covered in this post : Civ 5. Long Live the Queen. Saints Row the Third. Sims 3. Torchlight II. Tropico 4. Universe in a Sandbox. X-Com : The Original.
- Didn’t grab me for some reason : Fallout New Vegas. Magicka.
- Democracy 3 is an interesting game. So far I am a big failure, all three times I’ve played. It’s a bit short on action, is probably its biggest issue. That, or it’s just too flaming hard.
- You need to get re-elected to win the game, and start out with about 20% support for the United States. No matter who I pander to, I either get booted out at game end or assassinated. And all three games, SOMEONE is trying to assassinate me. Maybe it just needs some study.
- Dragons Lair and Space Ace – Awesome nostalgia for children of the ’80s.
- Endless Space – I still fire this up from time to time, it’s a reasonable 4x game.
- Flatout, various versions. Kicks the llama’s ass.
- Lucid – A fun puzzler. Played for a few days and am close to the top “level”.
- Stardrive – Loses me right away at the exploration model (Just let your ships auto explore !)
