Steam A

I've been on a shoestring budget for a while so instead of buying new things I'm trying to play through my Steam library.

  • And Yet It Moves- Lots of fun, puzzles and timing.  The pacing was perfect for Wife to play too!
  • Audiosurf - Perennial. This games gets lots of play in my house. Everyone already has the highest of scores for all the songs I want to play which is kind of a bummer.
  • Aquaria - I'm not much of a a mood gamer, I don't care about the setting, art or poetry especially in a game. I don't buy into the world very easily and I think that's required for this game.  I turned it off after a few corny lines.
  • Assassin's Creed - Same as it was the first time. Limited movements, forced game play style. I never saw the appeal.  I think I wanted to switch up my inventory a little more, like the Hitman series but set in a different time period.  Lots of cut scenes that can't be skipped. No thanks.
  • Atom Zombie Smasher - It was a lot more fun than I expected. Kind of reminded me of GTA 1 with the top down view. Actually more like Risk with zombies.  When you start the game you can turn on a few handicaps, adding two meant I won with flying colors.

Is this 0th place on the Heirarchy of Jokes? Recycle the same material decades later and see if anyone realizes?  Now I see in the comments that I'm not the first to discover this, but I realized it on my own!
