I'd definitely recommend Last Of Us, which I just finished.

League of Legends is free. It's SO free. IMO, the best MOBA out there.

Fire Emblem: Awakening is the best of the series published so far. It's even got 100+ unlockable characters from previous games.

RPGMakerVX Ace is my favorite time-wasting activity.

Civilization 5 is my second favorite time-wasting activity.

Darksiders/Darksiders II are the best games you've never played. I sincerely hope another studio picks them up and continues the series.

Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions for iDevices is the definitive edition of the game. A recent update fixed the animations and it runs smoothly now.

Fixed that for you, as that game actually holds that title.

I bought Saints Row: The Third on summer sale and I have to say I absolutely loved every second (or almost every, damn tiger missions) of it.
Felt great to get away from all these seriousface games for once and unleash my inner troll.
Definitely buying Saints Row 4.

Saint's Row 3 was a ton of fun.  I will never forgive it, however, for taking away my ability to choose my socks.  I also miss the cut-scenes to activities that SR2 did, instead of just dropping you off in the middle of it without much of an IC reason.    However, SR3 very much improved the handling on their vehicles, and the GPS system handles much better.  Additionally, I like the way that they handled weapon upgrades and the like.    If I could just get more granularity in my customization, I would be a happy camper.

Rather undeservingly, I might add.  Having tried it in the past, and played through it recently, I found it to be a half-baked slog.  It tries to do a lot, but never fully capitalizes on it.  It's decent at best, boring at worst, and definitely not worthy of any title, in my opinion.

Yeah, being a big fan of Beyond Good and Evil, I can say there are under appreciated games that i've loved more than it. Its a good game though IMO.

If you remeber and liked the old Oregon Trail game, then you might want to look into Organ Trail, on Steam.  It's a fun, cheap little zombie survival game done up in the style of Oregon Trail.  You have to try to slip past hordes of zombies, hunt for food and supplies, barter in little towns and with passers-by for spare parts for your car, all sorts of fun little things.  Not to mention having to make the call to off or not to off an infected party member.

So I guess in this game you can name your group of survivors after your friends/family?

My brother was playing this game on his laptop, turned to me and said, 'So you just got infected'. I responded with, 'Shoot me. I'd shoot me.'

Holy crap, the scene after you put down a party member is hilarious.

Yes, yes you can. I named my party after E folks, and was sure to inform them of the terrible things that happened to everyone. Good times.

I just recently upgraded to Dark Arisen, all I need to say is that Death is a troll.  "Lemme pop in, 1hit all your pawns, then flee."

Bought Shadowrun Returns on Steam a week ago.  Already sunk 35 hours into it.  It's phenomenal.

I remember playing Shadowrun on the Genesis way back when. Is the remake really that good?

This thread seems to be growing, so I thought I'd just point out that there's already a very large gaming thread on Elliquiy for those interested.

The remake is closer in style to the SNES version, even has an NPC who was the main lead in the SNES version.  However, it does take certain and many cues from the Genesis version, namely allowing you to make your character from a choice of archetypes, and let's you fill your team with those types that you're missing.

This is more team based then the SNES version, but more story driven than the Genesis version.

Played through Bioshock Infinite, it was quite good (some of the DLC looks fun). Replaying Baldurs Gate 2 which is fun and I'm waiting patiently for Star Citizen.

I wasn't enjoying it at first but The Last Of Us on PS3 is growing on me. Getting deeper into it, it is getting better.

Is Dynasty Warriors 8 any good? I like the series for a while but I think it was number 5 and 6 or 4 and 5 that put me off.

I apparently rekindled my obsession with Puzzle Pirates today.  Now to make Ult on all the sail puzzles...
