Buying new Steam titles: Any suggestions?

#1hunterslairPosted 6/1/2012 11:05:59 AM
Hello, GameFAQS! I've just come back from Gamestop with some Steam credit and am looking to buy a game or a few games. Looking at LA Noire right now. Considering buying Resident Evil 5 and selling my PS3 copy.

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions? I have a pretty large Steam Library already and I'm a fan of most any type of game. Looking for good deals to spend around 40-50 bucks.

Thank you for any guidance and cooperation!

Wait 3 weeks til the summer sale and that $50 will buy you 10 games instead of one.

Would be nice knowing what games you already own.

Wait about 20-25 days for the Summer Sale to start and go nuts. Just keep in mind, if it's not a daily deal, don't buy it until the last day.

Also, waiting til the summer sale is on my agenda, but my wallet is brimming right now from selling all my old console games I now own on PC. The 50 bucks or so I'd like to spend is a fraction of what I'm saving for the summer sale.

Well, you could buy the Humble Bundle 5, which includes Bastion, which is a really fun Indie game.

I'm blind. My apologies >_>

I don't really know what games you like, but some games I would recommend:

Bioshock 1 + 2
Borderlands
Deus Ex
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Fallout 3
Just Cause 2
Magicka
Mount & Blade: Warband
Orcs Must Die
Serious Sam games (3 and the HD games, specifically)
Dungeon Defenders, maybe? I don't have it, but it seems fun. Anyway, check these games out, you might enjoy them.
