Started playing F.E.A.R on Friday. Bought it on Steam last year but suffered from some FPS bug and had other games I wanted to complete first.

Did some googling and found it was a well documented issue involving a DirectX file. Copied the file into the installation folder and all sorted. Really enjoying it, I played it years ago but didn't get around to completing it.

Giants: Citizen Kabuto and any of the old Lucas arts adventure games, Indy and the Fate of Atlantis being my personal favourite.

Does Age of Empires II count if I play it on Steam? I bought the disc in early 2000, sold it in 2013, then re-purchased it on Steam in the same year. It's one of my all-time faves, and I still play it now. When I say 'now', I mean in the last week.

Baulders gate, It just has so much charm and their has never been a better DnD game.

POE is very good but the world lore is not as engaging for some reason.

Boooooo

Now that's a couple of games I played for days years ago, will give them another try soon.

Both are superb games - easily in my top 10 of all time.

Such a shame Volition folded and Deep Silver who bought them out (after THQ) seem to have no interest in the IP.

If a reboot was announced even on a kickstarter, I'd sign up in an instant.

Totally with you on this, even a 4K remaster would be amazing. The final mission in FS2 is still one of my favourite gaming memories.
