BATTLETECH
 – 

Clunky but fun

A bit clunky and awkward in terms of graphics and animations, but the fantasy of running your own mech mercenary group is just too strong to pass up. If you have those feels at all, this is worth your time and effort.

Endless Space® 2 - Penumbra
 – 

Another Great DLC

The Endless games always have quality DLC and this is no exception. A new faction that takes advantage of a new set of features. If you love the Endless games, check it out!

Cities: Skylines - Natural Disasters
 – 

Challenge Mode

Adds some fun challenges to the city builder but not necessary if you just want the chill core game.

Cities: Skylines - Green Cities
 – 

Non-essential but Good DLC

A non-essential DLC in a game with probably too many, but still worth it on a sale.

Stellaris: Apocalypse
 – 

Non-essential but Good on Sale

It adds some content but probably not enough for the price. Worth it on a deep sale or for completionists.

Cities: Skylines - Parklife Plus
 –

Crusader Kings II: The Reaper's Due
 – 

The DLC that broke me

This adds an excellent plague mechanic and was probably the last time I felt like purchasing a CKII dlc.

Crusader Kings II: Way of Life

Good Core DLC

Pretty important DLC and definitely worth it (on sale) for the mechanics it adds.

Airport Madness 3D: Volume 2
 – 

Trash

Really poor in almost every way. Basically a clicker with awful production value. Not even a charming failure, just a cheap cash grab. Not sure who it's meant to fool.

Crusader Kings II: Horse Lords Content Pack
 – 

Typical CKII DLC Cosmetics

Not really worth it except on a deep sale or for completionists.

Stellaris
 – 

Quite Good

A great mixture of Crusader Kings and UEIV with some streamlining to make it more palatable for durps like me who just can't deal with CKII's style (or lack thereof.) Not perfect, and DLC policy notwithstanding, this is a unique and great space empire sandbox and well worth your time if you're into this sort of thing. Be prepared to shell out for the DLC tho.

Tales from the Borderlands (Telltale Key)
 – 

The Best Telltale Game

Not a Steam Key for some reason. That said, the game itself is the tip top of fun and humor. As someone who's not a fan of Borderlands OR Telltale games, I enjoyed the heck out of it. It's not perfect and the middle bit isn't as strong as the opening and closing acts, but overall, it's the best thing Telltale and Borderlands have produced.

Titan Souls
 – 

Good Boss Rush

Good boss rush with great music and aesthetics marred by having no keyboard and mouse support for some reason.

Euro Truck Simulator 2
 – 

Captivating in a strange way

For some reason I keep playing this game. It should be incredibly boring but it manages to do the 'euro sim' thing in a way that is captivating despite looking a bit scruffy. You'll want DLC, and there's a lot of it, but the main expansions of the map are the good ones and usually pretty cheap on a sale. And worth it.

Stellaris: Utopia
 – 

The essential DLC

Currently the essential DLC for Stellaris and the first one you should be getting if you're going to give the game a shot.

Pillars of Eternity Hero Edition
 – 

Great RPG by any measure

Having bounced off the original Infinity Engine games despite best attempts, and thus having no real nostalgia to go off of, not to mention my general ambivalence towards D&D style fantasy in general, I stayed away from Pillars for a long while, even though I love a big, chunky RPG from time to time and have a real appreciation for Obsidian's brand of complex and thoughtful storytelling.

That was a mistake! It's quite great! The characters and setting, though not super-exotic, is strong and weird enough to be interesting. Not finding it overly-wordy compared to what I had heard, just the right amount of reading. More voice acting than I expected, and for the most part, pretty strong, especially when compared to something like Wasteland 2 or even Skyrim. The environments are quite pretty despite being 2D. I find myself enjoying real-time with pause combat for the first time ever, inexplicably. Lots of options and ways to play in terms of perks, skills, items, and spells. Plenty of combat and world-building. In other words: A big, meaty RPG, well worth your time.

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun
 – 

Sneaked into my heart

Surprise underrated end-of-2016 gem. Who knew isometric stealth could work so well? Beautiful, lush environments, large maps with lots of possibilities, unusually excellent characters and voice acting, virtually bug free launch, which is, let's face it, almost unheard of this year. Check out the substantial demo (I did) if you aren't sure. Just great.
