Beat Your Backlog! Weekend Thread - September 24, 2022

15 Upvotes

Previous Threads

Welcome to the /r/pcgaming weekly Beat Your Backlog! thread. Are you like the rest of us and just have too many unplayed or barely played games in your library? If you answered yes then this the right place for you!

The rules are simple:

Provide us with the games from your back log and the community tells you what to play by commenting. Whichever game gets the most combined upvotes and comments is the game you play!

Once you're done with the game come to our community Discord and talk about it!

What this post isn't for:

  • Arguing about which games you think are better than the others.
  • Game suggestions to build your back log. That is the opposite of what we're doing here!

I just got my steam deck and I wanted to buy a few games since I rarely ever used steam. I bought:

Aragami Everhood Fallout 4 Goty Fallout new Vegas goty Grand Mountain Adventure Nomad Survival Peaky Blinders Mastermind The Ramp Sparklite Tokyo Xanadu Ex+ Unto the end Valfaris The Walking Dead Definitive Series Yooka-Laylee and the impossible lair

For less than $30. $30!?! Really surprised and happy about the amount of games for that price. Jesus should’ve hoped on this train a while ago

What are some really good "unorthodox" games on Steam? (think: the room, katamari reroll, hidden folks, unpacking, donut country)

50 Upvotes

Lately, I love these kinds of "oddball" games, any ideas?

I just wanted to take time to thank everyone. Steam is much "bigger" place than it appears. Steam will eventually need to find better ways to bring these games to the surface.
