Games to buy during the summer sale?

Postby Dreadnot9 » Tue Jul 16, 2013 11:59 pm

I've already purchased Civ V: gold edition for 75% off, leaving me with about 13 buck in my steam wallet.

Some of the games I've got on my "wishlist" (that I can still afford):
Dishonored
Fallout 3: GOTY
Half-Life 2
Portal 1 & 2
Batman: Arkham Asylum: GOTY
Dead Space

I was just wondering which of these, or other games, you guys might suggest getting? I generally enjoy most types of games, shooters like TF2 and Battlefront, action-adventure/rpg like Skyrim and Mass Effect, as well as RTS like Empire at War (an underrated game if you ask me).

Thanks for any help guys.

Can't forget The Witcher and Chivalry: Medieval Warfare. ;)


EDIT:

Oh, and the Max Payne Collection, too. :o

FTL: Faster Than Light is a must and cheap.

Make sure to get Half Life 2's episodes as well, game isn't complete without them.

I only have enough for like one of these games, this'll be a tough decision (I suppose I could sell some tf2 stuff on the market though...).

I've never heard of FTL, what's the concept?

It's kind of a roguelike/rts/rpg in space.

To late, HL2 went 75% off (as did episode 1+2) and i just couldn't resist. I feel like I'll like this game though, so i'm happy with my purchase. I spent what little i had left on some tf2 crate unboxings, and actually made a profit, so I'll sell the keys from that and get a few more games (FTL if it isn't much, maybe something else if it is). hopefully I can sell the stranges I got before the 22nd though.

I don't know if there on sale atm or not (or if you already own them) but if you like shooters I'd recommend Borderlands 2. Both batman titles are also on sale, I would consider them. It's really up to what kind of game you like, however. Deus Ex: Human revolution is only 3 dollars right now though...so there's that.

FTL is $5. $7 if you want to also get the soundtrack, but you can listen to that ingame because of your budget. http://store.steampowered.com/app/21268 ... 1_7_15__13
