Yes, it’s true.
I’m weening myself off slowly… (slowly…) but… it’s hard.
So, I was always a “Hey, let’s look at Steam and see what free games they have!” and, truth be told, a lot of it is the Valorant/Paladins/Apex type of games that.. I’ll be honest.. I fucking suck at.
But Epic Games… (~shakes fist at sky~ DAMN YOU EPIC GAAAAAAAAMES!) they pump out a new free game every Thursday, and, over the pandemic, there were times where it was a new one almost every 24 hours.
I JUST got in to Red Dead Redemption II (Which wasn’t free, but got on super deep sale) and.. I finally decided to sit down and dig through games I got through Epic but haven’t played yet… so, here are some of the ones out of the over 100 I have on EPIC that I haven’t played but am eager to get in to…
ABZU – I tried 5 minutes of it.. and the game is beautiful. I get the sense it’s going to be super short… but the visuals alone are worth checking out.
Vampyr – I loved Bloodlines from WoD, and am eagerly waiting for Bloodlines 2 to finish.. until then, this game has some great reviews and I’m hoping to relive some of the feel I got from Bloodlines to hold me over till the sequel.
Obduction – It’s from the creators of Myst, which means I’m already sold
Shadow of the Tomb Raider – I never played TR on the original PlayStation systems, but did pick up Tomb Raider (2013) on Steam and really enjoyed it. If it’s anything like it.. I’m looking forward to finally tucking in to it.
Games I HAVE gotten to play…
Saints Row The Third : Remastered – It’s GTAV with more camp, sarcasm and gratuitous.. well.. everything, and I’m having a blast with it so far.
Control – I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about this game, and even though I’m only about 3 hours in, I am absolutely loving everything about it.
Elite Dangerous – Friends of mine introduced me to this game through VR a few years ago and.. this game is simply stunning. It looked great on my old RX 580 gpu, it looks AMAZING on a RTX 3060. If you check it out, be prepared to lose large chunks of your life to it.
Shadowrun Returns – Not gonna lie, I loved/hated “Shadowrun” on the Super Nintendo. This has the same feel, but so much smoother and…just.. better overall. I’m a sucker for the world of Shadowrun, and I really need to make time to get back in to this one.
