Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines
I’ve never encountered a game quite like Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines, which is a crying shame!!! Possibly the best RPG I’ve ever played. It’s supernatural, the characters are interesting and well fleshed-out (little in-joke that you’ll get once you play it), it’s thrilling (I actually was a little too scared to finish it by myself), the dialogue options are my dreams-come-true and the story is gripping! At 75% off – stop wasting time fool, buy it!
Life is Strange
A beautiful and deeply touching experience. I’ve never felt such weight behind every decision in a game before. Prepare to feel some serious angst and an appropriate level of stress as you control the fates of many characters you get to know and love. Cannot recommend highly enough, and with the first chapter being free, there’s absolutely no reason not to dip your toes in and see if you enjoy the ride!
Dead By Daylight
One of my all time favourite games! You are one of 4 players, trapped within the compound of a murderer who is trying to kill you all. Through the power of stealth, you must cooperatively repair generators to power the exit gates and escape! You may have been put off from playing this when it first came out, due to all the complaints about the terrible match system (they were justified – it would take a million years to find a lobby). However, I implore you to give this game another shot! The lobby issue is resolved and so many exciting and terrifying updates have been added since, it’s a different game entirely.
I have sunk a lot of time into this one. A mining, crafting, exploring, boss-killing extravaganza! It might seem like yet another sandbox crafting game, but it is so much more. You can team up with your friends online and create and explore totally randomized maps, find super rare loot and craft crazy-cool weapons/clothing/magic items and more! I want to play this with you really bad. Please buy it.
To The Moon
This little indie game takes you on a pretty emotional journey through the memories of a dying elderly man. I can’t really tell you more than that without spoiling what makes the journey so great. Since there is very little gameplay involved – you could get a similar experience by watching a playthrough, but there’s something extra absorbing about doing it all yourself.

Jackbox Party Pack
Got a bunch of friends with smartphones and don’t know what to do? Get any of the Jackbox Party Packs and crack open the insta-fun. My favourites so far have been from 3 and 4 (Trivia Murder Party and any form of Quiplash or Fibbage). However, I will add the caveat that your friends probably need to be ones that you’re fairly comfortable with, especially if you’re trying to monster-date them.

Nick’s Top 5
50% off – I’ve been waiting for this to come down in price. Looks solid time to strike!
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III
75% off – I’ve read terrible things about this game but at that price and because I’m such a massive fan of Warhammer 40k. I just feel like I have to.
Dead by Daylight
50% off – Actually I already have this, I just need whoever reads this to buy it and play the killer as I need more noobs to escape from. 😀
Dark Souls III: Deluxe Edition
70% off – I’ve heard a lot of good things but its scares me how hard it looks. But at that price how does one deny themselves.
60% off – Survival Action/Horror is where its at right now and because of other games I own, Steam has been trying to sell me this one for some time now. And with that deal, well. I may just have to show them the money.
Any-who that’s…WAIT wait wait you say. “What’s with all your games having the same first letter. That’s .. That’s a lot of D you got there.”
