Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
 – 

It's Star Wars!

Pretty fun. Has an odd combat mechanic, but learnable. Graphics are dated, but the gameplay/story makes up for that. Has good voice acting. Characters are interesting. Music is good. Runs good on my MacBook.

Had a glitch getting it working but support helped me straighten that out.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II
 – 

Complicated

This is much more complicated than anything else I've played. Controls are a little weird, but learnable. Story is mysterious. Combat mechanic is odd. Visuals are dated, but gameplay/story has promise for something cool.
I'd recommend it.

Subject 13
 – 

Strange little game here

This is a strange game with clunky controls. I don't trust that robotic voice. Puzzles are different. Music is repetitive. Visuals are ok, but not great. I'm having some bugs with the mouse wanting to double click when I single click, but it's not game breaking...yet.
Being a fan of adventure puzzle games, I'm curious to see where this goes and what happened to Subject13.

Cool Info

This is a neat game. While actual gameplay is basic platformer with a few bugs, the typography trivia is really cool. However, I get the feeling this has been translated from a different language as the info pages have spelling and grammatical errors. Music is interesting. Graphics are nice and seem to change/advance as you progress through levels/history. Overall a neat little game.
Side note: gameplay is pretty basic, if your looking for a good platformer, this is *not* it. If you're an information junkie and would like an overview of the history of typography (and dont really care about gameplay mechanics), than go ahead and try it.

A New Beginning - Final Cut
 – 

Classic Point & Click

Old school point and click adventure. Not obvious what needs to be done next. No hand holding. Interesting story so far.

Jumpman Forever
 – 

Love it!

Played the original on the coleco flashback, happy to find one I can play on my Mac. Fun as ever, has some interesting improvements/modifications. Visuals are nice, has interesting menu music. Levels get complicated pretty quick. Overall a great game to pass the time.

1,000 Heads Among the Trees

Not a Great Game

Eh, not a very good game. Visuals are dated, audio seems random. Has some weird stuff in it. Those shadows are spooky! Played about an hour, but it never got interesting, just weird. Not my cup of tea; probably will shelf this one.

Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
 – 

Fun

Fun game, though sometimes hard. Doesn't have native gamepad support, but using steam's key mapper, it can be done. Story's pretty interesting. Don't get to use a lightsaber til late in the game, but it's still fun to blast your way through the missions.

Cat Quest
 – 

Ameowzing Game!

Graphics are cute, soundtrack is cute, and the kitties are adorable! Gameplay is basic rpg, but with real time combat. Various enemies to attack. Full of cat puns. Lots of quests to do, though a little repitive. Various armors/weapons to get.

Has native gamepad support - even DS4! No need for converters to get the ds4 working, it works right out of the box. However, there can be issues when connected wirelessly; I just use a wired connection and haven't had any issues.

Overall, an excellent game! A cat the slays dragons, how cool is that?! Meow! Happy catventuring!

Star Wars Jedi Knight - Jedi Academy
 – 

Become A Jedi!

This game is fun, you start out as a Palawan and hone in your skills. Combat can be tricky but not impossible. Various force powers to upgrade; both light and dark side skills. Lightsaber is customizable - you can choose different colors and hilt designs. Gameplay is straight forward, but there's not any official gamepad support. However, using Steam Big Picture mode I was able to map my DS4 controller to the keyboard controls. Works, but sometimes buggy. Graphics show it's age, but still it's a fun game.

Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition
 – 

Challenging!

This game is both fun and frustrating. Once leveled up, it's very fun. What's frustrating, is the controls have a weird response time; ie when an enemy with a combo attack hits, you can't block or fight back until the attack is complete. There's also random delays when trying to attack. The story is interesting, fun to play on the dark side. Biggest complaint though is the sound mixing. Dialog is very quiet when in playing, but the cut scenes are insanely loud. Very hard to get a good volume where you can hear the other characters, but not get blasted during cut scenes. Also I'm unable to get either of my controllers to work with it.

Car Mechanic Simulator 2015 Gold Edition
 – 

Fun and Relaxing

This game is neat, lots of different vehicles to work on (dlc to add more!). When replacing parts, you have to remove bolts, other parts that could be blocking the one needing replacing, and so on. The only things missing are wires and hoses, but I think that would be too realistic and take the fun out of playing. The garage is customizable. Can take quite a bit of time to upgrade - I still haven't unocked the junkyard and I have 16+hrs on it! Graphics are amazing! Soundtrack is ok.
One minor glitch is the opening movie doesn't play, there's audio but no video. Otherwise the game runs fine.

I am Bread

This Game Is HARD!

But extremely fun and challenging! The paradies and puns in it are hilarious!
Controls are hard, even with a gamepad. Graphics are good. Music is cute.
Has one minor bug, it doesn't prevent the screensaver from running. So while I'm climing a wall, the game goes away and my screensaver kicks on. I have to wiggle the mouse to get it back. Meanwhile, my bread has let go of said wall. Having to disable the screensaver before launching the game is annoying.
Otherwise this is an awesome game! :)

The Book of Unwritten Tales Collection
 – 

Awesome!

Ony played the first one in the collection, but so far it's great. The puns towards other fantasies are hilarious! Artwork is good, the soundtrack is amazing. Performance is good, runs fine on both my macbook pro (via wine wrapper) running 10.10.5 and my mac pro (via macos) running 10.12.5.

Euro Truck Simulator 2
 – 

Great Attention to Detail

This game is awesome, the attention to detail is most impressive. Physics appear pretty close to the real thing (though I've never driven a real semi). Some routes even have construction simulated! Graphics are good even at low settings. Engine/horn sounds vary between the different trucks. AI traffic is spontaneous enough to simulate real drivers. Pretty fun!
The only cons so far is the framerate gets all weird when it's been running a while; which could be caused by it not always preventing the screensaver from running. If tabbed out, the game gets really wonky. Don't tab out!

Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock
 – 

Fun Point and Click

This game was fun! The banter between the characters was comical, though sometimes lacked the right emotion. Puzzles were mildly challenging. Graphics and soundtrack were good. Story had a small hole, didn't quite tied up all the loose ends.
My only gripe is it's way too short! Still, it's a great game to pass the time. :)

Life of Pixel

Awesome!!

Cute story, love the trivia on each of the systems. Early levels are challenging. (watch out for those spikes!) Soundtrack is ok, graphics are apropos to the system being played. Good game!

Mount & Blade: Warband
 – 

Fun!

This is a fun game. Sometimes stutters, but otherwise runs ok.
Love the character customization. Combat (especially mounted combat) has a high learning curve for those who are new to this type of game. Graphics are nice.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Game of the Year Edition
 – 

Wow!

The graphics in this game are amazing!!

Controls are a little complicated, but I don't normally play these type of games. The Nemesis system is interesting, where your opponents level up based on your kills and/or being killed. Pretty cool.
