Really neat, thank you! I too had not run across this site.
Honourable mention: Urban Dead, a browser game about a zombie outbreak
Honourable mention 2: Kingdom of Loathing, a browser game about nerd humour

I just received a Steam key for Qasir al-Wasat. I seem to have bought it directly from the developer, but I think it's been bundled at least once, so look out for an email if you've bought it.

Cheers, Alms. The minigames in To The Moon were harmless on my second attempt at the game - I must have been in a horrible mood the first time. Still, the game as a whole was something I...

Re-played Samorost 1 - I'd forgotten how short it was, but still fun. Also trying to figure out the night puzzles in A Good Snowman is Hard to Build.

I bought more than I normally do - a combination of having bought almost nothing on PC for ages and having income, plus having very specific windows of time in which I could make purchases. Then I...

Cheers, Alms! The people I'm thinking of are generally puzzlers, so I'll give Plus a go. I just wish it were available on tablet (other than Windows) as there are people who'd like this (both of my...

I "finished" Hexcells Plus and Infinite (haven't perfected some of the puzzles), so I went back to Hexcells. It's really nice to see how the concepts were developed, but at this stage I think Plus...

Hexcells. Lots and lots of Hexcells. I played the original ages ago, but hadn't moved on to Plus and Infinite until now. I'm with my in-laws in the middle of nowhere, and playing Hexcells is a...
Games are something I can talk about with people, so they're a way into socialising. They're also something I can do with my partner, and sometimes other people. When I was in uni, a bunch of us...

Best weapon - Grow Home's manoeuvreable shoots
Best puzzles - A Good Snowman is Hard to Build, from late 2014 (but I haven't played the Talos Principle)
Best in-game terminal entries - Grow...

I am having a great time with A Good Snowman is Hard to Build, and I'm very glad I dug it out of the backlog. If the idea of a very cute, well-made Sokoban-type puzzler is at all tempting to anyone...

I'm pretty sure I remember buying Underrail in a bundle, so it's very likely that it was that one. I must jump through the hoops to install it - I remember it looking interesting at the time. Has...

A lot of my experience of game books (Fighting Fantasy and Choose Your Own Adventure) has involved outright cheating (ignoring a death or bad roll) or "I'm bored, let's see what all the possible...

That's one of the very few games that's ever given me nightmares, even though I'd played very little of it. As a result, I'm not likely to go back to it, but I rate it highly.

Really enjoying Luigi's Mansion 2 over on the 3DS. I've had it for years, never finished it, currently ploughing through it fairly steadily at the rate of a level or two a day until I get distracted...
For me, it's backlog, plus little play-time either recently or coming up. I'm also thinking in terms of getting a proper PC (for the first time), which is a good reason to spend less on games for a...
Papers, Please is 4-ish quid on Steam (40% off). It may well have been cheaper, but it's well worth it.

XKCD has an interactive thingy today - it's basically moving a character through scenery, so I'm not getting into the whole "game/not game" argument, but it's a pleasing time-waster.
Slightly belated note that Knock, Knock is in the Humble Halloween sale for about a quid for the next 20 hours or so. I have enjoyed my time with it so far, and it's high on my list of things I ...

Things I've played that stand a good chance of being on the list (no particular order):
1 Crypt of the Necrodancer
2 Grow Home
3 80 Days
Things I haven't played that are likely to be on the...

Sorry! Sinister Agent made me buy it. :-/
(I had my eye on it as a mobile game, but I only have a normal-sized phone and rarely play things on it.)
I love Startopia. I've never...

Playing 80 Days in small doses, because I panic irrationally at the way time runs on even when you aren't doing anything and I find it hard just to go with the flow and accept that I'll probably make...

I didn't realise that I was supposed to bring the seed into the ship, which is sitting right there under your nose. I also didn't think through the implications of the seed respawning when you die,...

When I played a free version of Doodle God, years ago on Kongregate, I remember feeling that it was pretty pointless and only just continuing with it out of a curiosity to see the end. Was there...
