Skyrim Legendary Edition.

That's it so far. I'm thinking of buying Fallout 3 and New Vegas (both vanilla editions). I'm kind of wishing I would have bought vanilla skyrim. I wasn't ready to have the DLC stuff thrown at me at the beginning of the game. I really wish they would have given an option to enable the DLC at a later time if you wanted.

If you right click the game in the steam game library and head over to properties, you can disable the dlc in the dlc tab. The update that added this was released about a month ago I think.

Mirror's Edge
Octodad

I'm still looking to pick up Fallout 3 GOTY and Dawnguard (I have them both for 360, but I've moved over to PC somewhat recently). Maybe KotOR, as well.

Mod the parts that annoy you. Vampire attacks a problem? Various ways of toning them down, causing villagers to flee, making villagers essential (cannot die), or halting the attacks altogether.

If the cultists are really a problem, just turn difficulty down to novice when they show up, then back to desired level after. There's no shame in this, especially if you're playing vanilla - there are a good number of absurdly badly scaled encounters.

That's the only reason I can think the DLC would be a problem early game? I don't think you can enable it mid-save so it's in or it's out. Fortunately you are on the platform where if there's a problem, there's a fix. Nobody is satisfied with the vanilla experience, so do what it takes to make it a playable game for you. Believe me, that alone is a task.

Far Cry 2: Fortune's Edition
Mount and Blade: Warband and the Napoleonic Wars DLC


I'm mostly looking for Dark Souls 2 to go on sale, so I'm just biding my time until then.

You could simply disable the DLC, or utilize a mod ("Timing is Everything") that allows you to choose what DLC storylines start while still being able to use the content from said DLCs. it's what I use... Maybe I don't WANT to be recognized for my efforts and build a house when I've only cleared one dungeon no one could tell I was in - just because it starts at level 9?

I really never use signatures to be honest, but I figured I would put one here anyway.
