I'm into puzzle games, puzzle platformers, first person shooters, point-n-click adventure, turn based boardgame style games, and blowing **** up.

Of those...
I only can say that Evoland was fun, but short.

Of all those games, I've only ever heard of Leisure Suit Larry and Dragon's Lair. I'm guessing most of these are more obscure indy titles.

Of the ones I've played:

Dragon's Lair-s'alright, but honestly mostly worth it for the nostalgia
No Time To Explain-didn't like the gameplay, though the premise s'pretty cool
Organ Trail-fun enough
Bleed-okay
Giana Sisters-fantastic
McPixel-pretty amusing for the duration
DLC Quest-it's 75 cents, and that's like a quarter for every minute of gameplay
Waking Mars-awesome
Euro Truck Simulator 2-awesome
Rogue Legacy-probably my favorite thing on this list
Anodyne-I actually loved it, but I imagine it will not fly well with a lot of gamers-game is maybe a little too vague-weird-art-game for its own good
Inquisitor-Did not play much and loved the concept, but the execution was clunky, slow, and unfun-it's like all the worst bits of oldschool RPGs
La Mulana-awesome
Fly'n-cutesy and fun enough, worth the price if you like platformers, but maybe not the highest priority in this sale
Primordia-company has a good pedigree and the intro bits seemed good, but I don't think I played enough of it to really vouch for it

By Grabthar's Hammer, what a savings.

I've only played

Euro Truck Sim 2
and
Organ Trail

out of that list and both games are good.

ETS 2 is the best driving (not racing, just driving) game ever, and you don't have to even like trucks to have fun with it.

Organ Trail is a very good take on The Oregon Trail.

I enjoyed Miasmata, but it doesn't really fit into the genre's you said you like.
#9DiviDudePosted 8/29/2013 4:23:49 PM
Also AirBuccaneers looks f****** awesome.

Rogue Legacy.

I recommend using a controller.
