OK, so, I went a bit crazy during the recent Steam summer sale. Crazy as in "These games are 75% off so if I buy every one that looks vaguely interesting I'll be saving soooo much money!". A bit like a girl armed with Daddy's credit card during a shoe sale.
So now I've probably got more games that I'll ever play. To give you an idea on the games I've liked, the ones I've played in the last few years are the two Dragon Age games (Origins was great, 2 was mediocre but still enjoyable) and the Mass Effect series (I enjoyed all 3 games, and wasn't too upset about the ending of 3). As you may be able to tell, I'm a bit of a Bioware fanboy.
I haven't played that many other modern games as in the last couple of years I've had an unhealthy fascination with Civilization IV. I'm currently trying to rekindle my love of RPG's by playing The Witcher. I'm about 20 hours in and though I prefer party based RPG's I do like the story and setting so far.
Right, so, I've made a shortlist of Steam games that I now own that I think I'd like to play in the not too distant future:
- Batman Arkham Asylum GOTY
- Batman Arkham City GOTY
- Skyrim Legendary Edition
- Fallout 3 GOTY
- Fallout New Vegas Ultimate
- Galactic Civilizations II (complete)
- Indigo Prophecy (aka Farenheit)
- Might& Magic Heroes VI (complete)
- Mount & Blade (complete)
- Might & Magic Heroes VI (complete)
- Neverwinter Nights 2 Platinum
- Of Orcs and Men
- Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines
- The Witcher 2 Extended Edition
- Tomb Raider GOTY
Any advice on which order to play this treasure trove in would be appreciated. I'm trying to get back in to RPG's, though have added Galactic Civilizations II and Heroes VI as wild cards in case they're the best thing since sliced bread. I'm afraid I'll waste hundreds of hours on them though like I did with Civilization IV so I'm a bit wary of getting into another similar game.
As you'll see from my list I do appreciate non-RPG's too as long as the gameplay and story are good. That's why I've added Batman, Tomb Raider and RAGE to the list.
