Might also be worth verifying they work on modern systems.
All of Commandos games are excellent, with 2 probably being the most well regarded, 3 being the worst.

A word of warning, they're hellishly hard.
As a personal favourite, I'd go with the first one, Beyond Enemy Lines, but I'm biased as it was one of the first PC games I ever bought.
Definitely a series from my childhood. I sucked at them, though.
Fixes are here; it was made by a fan on the Steam forums. It was on Megaupload, people have hosted it elsewhere since then.
I guess the link was already posted! Well, I can still add to it and say you gotta go right to the last page to get the fixes since Megaupload is no more.
I loved going back to complete don't give a monkeys maps where you can clearly see where the arena begins and ends. And the giant sandworm that will eat you if you go outside it.
The last level is pretty terrible though. Probably hilarious to write and well into the realms of "how far is too far? this far!" but I just couldn't be arsed gritting my teeth through the gauntlet it lays down. But a pair of minor gripes for hours of solid, smiley shooty bang bang that I truly enjoyed loads.
There's no manifesto. There's no formal plan.
Worse still is they'll take your card details, send you a confirmation email but nothing else. No warning there's been a problem, nothing (definately not a game).
I've bought 3 things from GGG, 2 of those resulted in having to talk to their support people to actually find out what the hell was going on - won't bother again...
I know it's been heavily discounted in the past, but Just Cause 2 is up for £2.50 on Gamersgate, and the DLC is discounted to a similar level (22p each for the smaller packs, 37p for the bigger ones)
Don't go for the Just Cause 2 complete pack (which includes the game and all DLC) as it's slightly cheaper to add everything individually. A fine way to use up some blue coins regardless.
Contemplating getting Dear Esther, which is half off on Steam. Reading through the corresponding Steam forum is hilarious. For people here who've played it, what did you think? I'm well aware of the length and type of gameplay, and they don't necessarily deter me if the game can successfully do what it was trying to do (which is the story, I suppose).
Tbh I found Dear Esther fairly tedious. In terms of source mods telling a story, Stanley Parable did it better. I'm possibly missing something but I really couldn't find a single useful thing about it.
I'll put it this way: I enjoyed the path, but not so sure I enjoyed Dear Esther, and kind of regret purchasing it.
The cave looks gorgeous though, they've taken the Source engine to it's extreme in that section of the game.
I'm failing to writing a blog, specifically about playing games the wrong way
