I last left PC gaming when I got bored of mine craft but I really haven't played many games since 2007, Crysis and finishing AOE3 being the last two I can remember.
So far I've gotten around to playing a few games such as
Vanishing of Ethan sharter,
The stanly pairofballs,
Sim Shitty reboot,
Civ: beyond earth and its DLC,
Starcraft 2 all three eps,
Xcom enemy unknown (Will buy sequel),
Pillars of eternity,
Ori and a blind forest gump
and a few classics that I missed out on or replaying.
Also, test drive unlimted 2 , need for speed the run, and Grid.
While I haven't finished some of the games above, some of which are best played in short bursts over weeks/.months/years such as xcom, starcraft, cities ft, it shows a general spectrum for what I like to use my PC for and what games I have the hardware for (Most of the above I can play at 1366x768, medium settings, low anti aliasing (2x-4x XMAA) and depending on the need for frame rate which for the most part hits 60 but some games like Ethan Sharter need settings lowered to reach a fluid fps.
So bassically I am looking for games post 2008 and prior to 2013, file sizes not much more than 15gb due to data cap and cuomputing power unless its an exception like Pillars of enternity and Grim dawn, both of which I can play on medium setting no problem. No open world games or fast racers if they exceed Vanishing of Ethan Carter on low settings 30 fps or Test drive unlimited 2 on low 30 fps.
I have my eye on the following,
Act of agression,
Empire shogun 2,
Tales of ....whatever I have the tech for...ia,
farming sim 2015
So, any suggestions of must play games? Niche or underated gasmes. I really don't want to spend anymore money unless I'm sure its a game I will enjoy and it won't affected my limited data cap, so 30gb tops on games per month, 15gb being a large size to me.
I would really appreciate any advice/suggestions.
