So, I thought to myself, why not start a thread, where we can recommend games, that do not come from greedy publishers, who push for glorified gambling and microtransactions in 60$ games. So, without further ado, here are some of my favourites and why: a)Distance http://store.steampowered.com/app/233610/Distance/ -It is a successor to a free indie game Nitronic Rush. You play as a car and your goal is to reach the end of the track as soon as possible. However, it takes a unique spin on the genre, by adding wings to the car allowing for a temporary flight, jumping abilities, rotating in the midair with a set of dual controls (WASD + arrows) and deadly traps. It is very climatic and has got huge modding community and ton of tracks. Steam version is better because of that, although you can get it drm free. b)Them Fighting Herd http://store.steampowered.com/app/574980/Thems_Fightin_Herds/ Cute Equine characters, akin to My Little Pony, beating the crap out of each other. A damn good fighting game, with great difficulty and amazing art style. c)Shantae Series: -You can currently get first two games on gog, the third one should come in a year or so hopefully. https://www.gog.com/game/shantae_and_the_pirates_curse -It is 2D platformer, with great characters and damn good game mechanics. d)Cossacks: https://www.gog.com/game/cossacks_anthology -One of the best classic games, on top with stronghold series. Very enjoyable, but later instalments suck. e)Disciples 2: https://www.gog.com/game/disciples_2_gold It is a 2D game, similar to heroes, but simpler. You can not move your units across the battlemap and the fights are duels basically. Third game sucks. f)Rayman 2 and 3: -One of the best 3D platformers of all time. I definitely like it more than Origins and such. https://www.gog.com/game/rayman_3_hoodlum_havoc https://www.gog.com/game/rayman_2_the_great_escape g)Far Cry 1: https://www.gog.com/game/far_cry -Get it cheap on gog. -First Far Cry and still one of the best in my opinion. It is really bloody tough, very climatic and good storyline. I used to be scared of this game, when I was younger. h)Besiege: -It is a design your own machine to complete the objective kind of a game. It is good, but it targets specific audience. http://store.steampowered.com/app/346010/Besiege/ i)HyperDimension Neptunia series on GOG.com -Parody of the entire gaming industry with anime characters. Grindy, but fun. Still get it on sale. -A jRPG. https://www.gog.com/game/hyperdimension_neptunia_rebirth1 j)Orcs Must Die 1 and nothing else after that. -A tower defence game with a twist. You play as a battle mage and stop hordes of orcs with traps and automatic crossbow. Very fun. -The later games introduced forced COOP and the game became annoying. http://store.steampowered.com/app/102600/Orcs_Must_Die/ Your turn!
