In visiting the other thread, I thought of a question. When you play full price for a game, you're invested that it's going to be a fulfilling experience. Some would say that it may be a suggestion that it's a better game than it actually is. So I wanted to ask make another 'Best Game' thread without that psychology in it. Without the suggestion of the investment in purchase of a game, which one would you say is your most rewarding experience? In other words, which is the best game you've borrowed, picked up for free, or very cheaply? My Pick - Spoiler I've never cared for online games, with the exception of Starcraft2 which I never was very good at playing online, until I picked up CS GO on the winter Steam sale last December. I picked it up for only $5, I believe. Since then, everything else on my computer has been gathering dust. I freaking love to play this game. The graphics on max settings are great. The gameplay is deep, high paced, and very fun. The community is of the largest online for as long as the game has been around since it was a mod for Half-Life. The maps are the best I've encountered on any FPS, ever, and they don't become outdated as new maps are released. The servers are great and I'm always hooked into a casual game within a few seconds, or a competetive game within a minute or a few, based on the map I want to play on. So far, this year alone I've played CS:GO for 250 hours. For the money I've paid, as to how much I've played a game, this is unquestionably the biggest ratio in all of my two and a half decades of gaming. So what's yours?
