I am thinking of Skyrym? Any other suggestions?

Friday Night at Freddy's is a fun little game. But, I believe it's free, or very cheap.

If you have not playet Skyrim, that one is a must-do. Same with the Half Life series.

I just got Skyrim for like 80% off. Mainly because it feels like owning Skyrim is the law these days.

Lots of positive buzz around the Five Nights at Freddy's series right now, but horror is not my cup of tea.

I got Just Cause 2 for my son and me so we can play multiplayer.

Garry's Mod is awesome.

let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

Risk of Rain is a great platformer/shooter.

Sword of the Stars - The Pit - Is a great roguelike turn based dungeon crawler.

Rogue Legacy - Another platformer, where every time you die, you play as the children of your warrior.

All pretty cheap, all with immense replay value.

New deal for Gone home for $4. Well worth it even at full price.

I can run just about anything on my desktop but I think Skyrym is beyond my laptop's abilities because of the video card.
Any fantasy RPG that can be run on a Phenom II X4 N970 with a mobility Radeon HD 4250?

Having downloaded Skyrym, I don't really like the controls . . . . .I like game with controls like Diablo III, Torchlight II, or Dungeon Siege.

Yeah, I didn't like the controls either, at first. But the game is worth getting used to them.

I ended up physically disconnecting my game pad because trying to play with the pad was just a head ache.

Skyrim is good. I will say that if you like the actiony end at all, Shadow of Mordor is just plain great. You *just* missed it going on sale, though (I think it was like 60% off earlier in the week).

Skyrim is ok. But be prepared to mod it heavily. The base game sucks.

Steam sales are always the best way to go. You probably already spent your cash. This year I personally bought:

Endless Legend
Fallen Enchantress: Fallen Heroes
Kerbal Space Program (must have really)
Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion
Grid 2
Banished
Company of Heroes 2


I tend to like the 4x type games and rpg. The most expensive title was Kerbal. COD2 I picked up for $10? which is a steal. Haven't played most of them. I bought my son a ps4 and have been spending most of my time on Destiny.

Shadow of Mordor, despite the scandal surrounding it, is a great, great game.

I can see the nemesis system becoming a standard.
