I bought the Gazelle for DCS but it is no fun to fly so requested a refund, think I will get IL2 Stalingrad instead.

Project Cars with all DLC for 20 some bucks was a no brainer. I am not a racing guy but this game/sim can be setup to give even a really bad virtual racer like me a fighting chance to still have some fun. Runs great with settings mostly flat out with a single GTX 1080 at 2k. Beautiful graphics, tons of cars and tracks. I am sure it is not super realistic, especially the way I have it setup, but it is a heck of a lot of fun.

Was thinking of getting Project Cars and did check out the demo but I am dedicated to Assetto Corsa now so don't want to switch between two similar games when it is best to stick to one if you want to get good.

Steam refused my refund on the gazelle for DCS because I was in game more than 2 hours so am stuck with it now.

I picked up Dishonored 2. I'll start it after I finish Deus Ex MD.

This is the first Steam sale in ages that drained a huge chunk of my bank account, but I just pulled the trigger on a HTC Vive so that explains a lot.

Picked up:
theBlu
Vanishing Realms
Fruit Ninja VR
The Lab (free)
The Brookhaven Experiment
Virtual Desktop
Tilt Brush
Space Pirate Trainer

I should also have Zombie Training Simulator and The Gallery - Episode 1: Call of the Starseed once I figure out how to claim these games from Vive.

Anyone else have good VR games they'd like to recommend? I already have Elite Dangerous, DCS, Falcon 4 BMS, and Project Cars, but these games need my simpit to work properly and at the moment, I've just set up the Vive in the living room.

I don't have a VR headset, but I do have Subnautica which has its own VR version. I'd bet it makes a great VR game.

Thanks for that! Grabbed Google Earth but yet to try it. I'd grab Subnautica as well but the game description isn't capturing me very much. Maybe if I don't get anything else and the Steam sale is about to close, I'd grab it.

I'm thinking of getting Arizona Sunshine as an "alternative" zombie shooter but not too sold on it to buy it on full price. There's also EVE Valkyrie or House of the Dying Sun but neither supports HOTAS and wants me to use controllers instead --- I'm not very good with controllers...

Subnautica is very good and is one of the best early access games. Once you learn the basics it becomes of very fun survival/exploration game and its not complete yet.

Dishnored 2 is the title I really want. Deus Ex started slow and was not as good as Human Revolution, but still an excellent game.

Was thinking of Squad but I think the game will be too serious for me. Seems like comms/mics are a must and it is very much squad play focused. I like my MP games like Red Orchestra, with a bit more realism than Battlefield but not too involving. Something I can jump in for an hour or so.

I think the problem for a lot of people is simply having a huge backlog of games to play so there's no real rush to get new games even if they are on sale.

Yeah, I know. I broke down & got some DLCs for Project CARS and the old Tie Fighter game.

I am debating if I should get the Just Cause 3 DLC. I actually enjoyed the game a good bit, but the DLC seems to be medicore and only offer around 6 hours of similar been there done that, but the price is almost what I paid for the base game.

And it's over! I think this is the first Steam sale in a long time that I've purchased a serious number of games, but this was primarily due to the purchase of an HTC Vive as well. Can't let the hardware sit unused!! biggrin

So here's a list of my final haul:
theBlu
Vanishing Realms
Fruit Ninja VR
The Lab (free)
The Brookhaven Experiment
Virtual Desktop
Tilt Brush
Space Pirate Trainer
Google Earth VR (free)
Subnautica
The Solus Project
Audioshield
Final Approach
Breach & Clear Collection (non VR)
The Final Station (non VR)
The VR Museum of Fine Art (free)
Waltz of the Wizard (free)


I think that should be enough to keep me occupied until the next Steam sale! biggrin
Thanks to everyone that suggested more games to try!

Since buying Elite Dangerous last year I have only bought one game, Farming Simulator 15, but never got round to playing it as I always just started up ED instead.

The ED addiction hasn't gone entirely but it has subsided to a level that I may occasionally play something else so I bought these in the sale;

Kerbal Space Program
Dishonoured (the first one, not 2)
The Long Dark
Risen Bundle.

Played a bit of TLD already and enjoying something different from ED.

Picked up:

Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations
Endless Space DLC
Battlefleet Gothic Armada
Arma 3 Apex


no regrets, all good so far. Tried out some multiplay on Battlefleet last night and it was a lot of fun.

I did have the Elite DLC in and out of my Cart a few times but in the end decided I would hold off on that one

Same with "Stellaris" - I think I'll wait for the $15.00 price on that or the GOTY edition
