Tomb Raider. I like the way they turned things around with this game that is in a positive way, kind of reminds of What CApcom did with REsident evil 4 and that series. (sadly it's headed the other direction now)

Apparently I bought I Am Alive for $5.09, on 1/5/13. I don't remember buying it, but I do have an email saying I bought it...

I don't remember. I know the last game I purchased was fallout new vegas. It's on its way from amazon. Very excited.

Uggghhh - I was very disapointed with that game - have you played it yet?

No, however I did quite enjoy Risen 1. I'm well aware that Risen 2 is considered not as good, but for seven bucks I'm still willing to check it out.

Haven't bought one yet for the pc. My pc gaming time is spent pretty much completely on TF2.

Driver San Francisco was my first 360 game this year.

10000000. Match 3 game with RPG elements. Huge time waster, and once my save got deleted, I havent gone back to it.

Since I bought my yoga though, I did try it out and was pleased that it works so well with a touch screen (it was originally an ios game - so it should). I would really like if they start listing which games are compatible with touch in steam.

Sleeping Dogs, on a Steam sale for like $10. I haven't played it yet--I have a significant backlog and it was kind of an impulse purchase.

SC2: Heart of the Swarm

I'm enjoying it but its only a small improvement over WoL in regards to what I play it for (online matchmaking, arcade games). I'm not a high level player and most of the new units are only used in more advanced strategies or as very specific counters. I do enjoy watching pro level players though and the addition of the new units has certainly added a lot to their games. I don't really enjoy playing RTS campaigns, but I do appreciate the continuation of the story and am looking forward to seeing how it ends in the Protoss campaign when it comes out.

I think it was the Torment KS, boxed edition.

After that, the Amazon Bioshock Inifinite digital pre-order bundle with X-Com and $30 2K credit -- it's just finishing up downloading on Steam now (but still locked).

Numenera Torment KS, the 20$ pledge

Been replaying Dark Souls again on PC, making it hard to justify any new game since they fall flat when compared to this masterpiece.

Tomb Raider and Tropico 4 are the first PC games I bought this year. Though I did get a Playstation Plus subscription for Christmas so I got a lot of free PS3 and Vita games through there.

Kind of hard to say since I think I bought a bunch off a steam sale but I believe the first game I bought was Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Not a single game yet,want to purchase Far Cry 3 and maybe Skyrim.

Do want to try to play some games i have played before but never finished,those including Far Cry2,Bioshock then buy Bioshock 2.

Doubt i will be getting the older Bioshock games and GTA4 again,plagued by GFWL or as i like to call it"Get f***ed without Lube".....unless steam has these without it?

Dread GFWL.....
