I got $40 to add to my Steam wallet for Christmas, so I am looking for games. I purchased the Stronghold Collection for $9.99 (I grew up with them), and also the Fallout Collection for $6.79 (wanted to try the older games). That leaves me with a little over $23, and am debating over a few games. The Half-Life Collection is $19.99, and so is Guild Wars. I've never played Half-Life, but have heard nothing but great things. I have never gotten into MMOs (short attention span), but with Guild Wars, this may be something I get sucked in to. Also ARMA 2 is $18, and I don't know much about it, but it looks good, and I can then get DayZ. Are there any other games you recommend?

BQ: My change will be gifting Indie Games to a friend. Any games you recommend for her?

^^I copied and pasted it from a Yahoo answers question. Sorry for the sporadic appearances, I'm still here. Once I get less busy with school I can post more. Merry Christmas, love you guys.

I bought ARMA 2, though have yet to play it. Guild Wars 2 is great, and I'm definitely not an MMO guy at all. I'm waiting on Hotline Miami and Torchlight 2...those will be it for me this winter.

Mass Effect one and two for ten bucks is good.
I have a huge backlog but I may get the two Batman Arkham games.
It all depends on your taste.

I ended up buying Left 4 Dead 2 for me and gifting it to a friend (he bought me Far Cry 3). I then bought an indie game Home for $1.01 and gifted it to him and another friend.

Has FC3 even been on sale during this event on Steam, or did your friend drop some serious gaming budget on you? Either way, if you like L4D2, you might want to check out Killing Floor during the next free weekend that they have for it.

If you're going to get Arkham then buy this bundle (ends today.)

Batman Arkham GOTY Pack [Download]

No, and he got it for me on Xbox. I've lent him a whole bunch of games, and bought him stuff over the years. Now that he has a job, that was his thank you gift for all I've done for him.

Weren't you ibtching the other day about Steam selling DOTA2 and how it used to be a mod? You DO know that Chivalry is the same case where a mod was turned into a full fledged game for the sequel, right?

as well as Team Fortress being a mod and the sequel being game.

The Half-Life series is great. They may seem "dated" now if grew up on modern shooters, but they are awesome games and with an open mind you'll get good enjoyment out of them.

I'll second the Killing Floor recommendation. I just got it this winter sale and it is the perfect mix of L4D, CoD Zombies, and a little Counter-Strike. Very fun co-op horde mode shooter.

For indie games I recommend Bastion, the Bit Trip games, Super Meat Boy, Cave Story + (Heard great things about it, haven't played it myself), and Dwarfs?!. All those will entertain you, and some of them are pretty long.

I know you bought games already, but figured I'd throw those out there anyways :)

The VGF Steam group had a discussion about this earlier: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/Ama-VGF/discussions/0/864945276447278556/

Killing Floor is definitely my top recommended game and is currently on sale again. While it isn't really my thing (I hate mouse-based movement in games of the genre) Torchlight and Torchlight 2 seem to be very popular.
Team Fortress 2 is free on Steam, so that's another good way to go for multiplayer with friends.

Darksiders Franchise if it goes back on sale for ~$13 (it probably will on the last day)

I finally beat the first one last night, after getting it during a Steam sale last year. Now I'm starting second one and it's just as awesome as the first, in my opinion.

Chivalry is the SEQUEL to a free source mod, that's true, but it is still a standalone retail game that costs money. DOTA 2 is a FREE GAME for anybody, which is why I am surprised that Steam is trying to charge 15$ for it.. it seems a bit criminal taking advantage of people who don't realize it's a free download.

Half-Life 2 is definitly worth it. Some sort of bundle with the Portals is one of the best packages in videogaming.

There's a button on the main store page for 'things on sale'. There's a button on the right side of most game pages for 'download demo'. It's approximately just as easy to run a demo as getting the retail version, so feel free to test before throwing your virtual wallet at things!

Your DOTA2 argument is supported by the worst logic ever.

don't listen to this nerd. he also gave borderlands a 1/5. even if it wasn't your cup of tea, the game is well developed. obvious troll is obvious.
