Highly Recommended -
Awesomenauts: If League of Legends, Dota 2 and other MOBA’s haven’t worked out for you but you’re still interested in something competitive then Awesomenauts may just be the game for you. Unlike MOBA’s, Awesomenauts is a 2D side-scrolling arena action-platformer, complete with turrets, opposing sides, and neutral objectives. Also unlike MOBA’s it has a cartoon-comic aesthetic and a decent contemporary soundtrack. A lot of the extra content, which includes new characters and bundles are also on sale for a similar discount so do also consider picking those up.
Sid Meier’s Civilization 5: While it had it’s issues at launch, even then this installment into the Civ series was still a must buy for any Civ or pseudo-grand strategy fans. At this price however, and with a lot of new additional content (which are all on sale except the latest release) it’s a pretty good time to pick these up if you’re new or have been waiting to do so. As with all Civ games, expect a lot of city management, strategic unit control and many, many hours of game play hours to be had from this title.
Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine : An indie title revolving around robbing banks, played out in a somewhat psychedelic birds eye view perspective. Monaco isn’t a game completely about sneaking around if you should choose not to and it also does come with a few options to take during its 30 or so levels such as making a dash or playing strategically planning out your route carefully. The variety of classes (who have their own strengths/weaknesses) and a very highly recommended multi player aspect makes this a blend of experiences and mechanics that work surprisingly well together and something worth your money should you be interested in a game a little different from the norm.
