What’s up, gamers? For today’s article, I want to feature a couple of games on my list – both those I’ve played and those I’ve been meaning to – that you can get on your Steam account. This post’s long overdue and was supposed to be up a few days ago before Valentines’ – because what better way to spend just another day than to play some games? Right? RIGHT? – but anyway, let’s just get on with the list, shall we?
Guns and Tears for Steam Account Users
FPS games these days rarely pack a good story, but I’ve a few guns-blazing, action games to recommend that: (1) tells a great story, and (2) isn’t Call of Duty (sorry COD fans; there won’t be any CODs here).
Words can’t give enough justice to how beautiful this game is. Expect tears and post-game depression / hangover once you beat BioShock: Infinite. Seriously. BioShock 1 was a canvas of pretty colors already, but the third installment is literally the magnum opus!
Far Cry 3.
Guns, pirates, psychopath antagonists, and a violent island with a myriad of possibilities – if you like all these, then Far Cry 3 is the game for you. You don’t have to play the first two Far Cry games to understand Far Cry 3 as it stands on its own. I’d include Far Cry 4 on my list, but it was up to me, I’d say FC3 was – is – tons better than FC4. Just saying!
Fallout 3 / Fallout 4. I’ve always been into post-apocalyptic themed games with steampunk-ish themes. Fallout caters to my need for post-apocalypse goodness. In Fallout, you scavenge for items in a highly volatile environment. It’s a dog-eat-dog world out there, and you do what you gotta do to survive. Both games are wonderful, so make sure to get them.
Action, Horror, Survival for Steam Account Users
Tomb Raider. It’s got mixed reviews, and to be honest, I almost didn’t pick up the game because most of the reviews I read were bad, but I’m glad I didn’t! Tomb Raider is a reboot of the classic TR games we used to play back in the day, only more badass and action-packed. Lara can get a bit annoying because she tends to come off as whiny, but who are we to judge her? She’s facing off against crazy cult followers and Oni for the first time after wall!
Dying Light. Personally haven’t played Dying Light yet, but this has been on my list ever since its first teaser. Dying Light combines parkour (who would’ve thought?) and the zombie apocalypse in an open-world adventure. Though not necessarily an FPS game as it focuses more on survival and melee, it’s still chock-full of action! Just make sure you don’t run around at night – it gets scarier and more dangerous!
Alien: Isolation. Literally a survival simulation, Alien: Isolation is for hardcore gamers who enjoy feeling tense and afraid, and dying over and over again. This game is probably not for everyone, but it is a great title to pick up if you’re feeling a bit masochistic. Great thing about it is that it plays like a movie!
Stealth is Wealth for Steam Account Users
Now, another personal favorite: stealth games. I have quite the soft spot for assassination games; however, I never really got into Assassin’s Creed.
Dishonored. I thoroughly enjoyed this game. For one, it’s steampunk-themed. And second, it’s an assassination game with a solid storyline which I cried over. What could be a better combination? Dishonored has a pretty awesome MC too, and the gameplay is just as A+ as its visuals. Dishonored 2 is coming soon, so you might want to get this pronto for your Steam account value.
Hitman. Enter a world of assassination! There’s a new Hitman game coming soon for Steam account users! I haven’t played any of the games, but I will undoubtedly pick up a copy once it’s out. Anyway, Hitman is exactly as it’s named. In Hitman, you get to play as a bald badass who assassinates people!
