    Call of Pripyat has DX11 features, i recommend using the complete mod or something similar.
    If you didn't like the original Stalker then you wont like the others as the gameplay and design is the same.

    Call of Pripyat is the most playable though as at release the game didn't have many bugs and its engine is more efficient. The original stalker needed mods and patches to fix it up, notable because it was delayed and even then it was still buggy at release.

    Zeno Clash is $3.75 on steam, I'm gonna finally check this game out...it looks interesting for sure. :toast:

    EDIT: Just noticed Revenge of the Titans is on sale for 5 bucks as well. Totally kickass indie strategy defense game, actually very entertaining and gets very challenging, but stays fun. Very much worth 5 bucks imho.

    You need to have a specific Flash Player installed to view video content in Steam. Please follow these directions to get the right version for Steam.

    You will need this Flash player even if you already have the latest player for your default web browser.
    this is what i get when try to watch video in steam application. i do install plugins following that link but still it does the same.

    Arciks, did you select "Install for other browsers" ? Seems to work fine on mine, I use IE. Which browser are you on?

    I suppose IE, because there is a Flash Player for IE and a Flash Player for all the other browsers (FF, Opera Chrome, ...). I only installed these two (even though I barely use IE, lol) and Flash video works for me in Steam.

    Neither is a simulator, both are good driving games. They do require some skill to play, as opposed to actual arcade games, but to call any of them a simulator would be way too much credit :)

    I play GRID on LAN alot, love it.

    Civ V 66% off as a steam weekend deal.

    The critics love it, the folks on amazon hate it!

    Civ 5 is pretty incredible if you ask me. I may start playing it more often.

    I prefer civ V over civ IV

    Just make sure to up the difficulty from what you usually play at and you should be great

    Here i also like Civ 5 more than Civ 4. After a while i got used to the no stacking and prefer it. Could do with an expansion including all the DLC and some new stuff. I still love playing an Earth map, its always handy when you start on North America.

    I like all the Civ games.
