DOOM 3 BFG is 60% off at Epic and also includes the expansion packs and improved graphics/widescreen support. Install size 4GB (DOOM Eternal install size 80GB)
It's also on sale at GOG 60% off!

Won't run at all in spite of all my tweaks so I refunded only to find I already had the game on Steam, duh! :) (Steam version works fine)
GOG version runs perfectly as well. I wonder what the problem with the Epic version is?

Because It's better to have any game on GOG or Steam instead of EGS, is why.

Aliens Fireteam Elite is 60% off at Humble which proves it's well worth checking if it's on Game Pass first (if you subscribe), which it is :)
That was a close shave...

Just noticed this while buying a couple other games on my wishlist;
These are the enhanced versions of Doom 1 & 2. Big discount too! I think because I already owned them I got them for free, but if you don't have them yet, they $1.50USD.
Go take a look folks! The enhanced versions are something to consider!

Also, XCom Chimera Squad, 75% off;

Control Ultimate Edition, 70% off;

It seems GOG is having a sale and I missed the email about it...
It's on for the next 10 days!

Doom 3 BFG is the worst version of the game. Get the original Doom 3 and Doom 3 RoE instead. The changes made to BFG made the game a lot worse and I think soiled the reputation of Doom 3.

I have both Doom 3 and BFG, so I'm wondering why you say this...

I have both Doom 3 and BFG, so I'm wondering why you say this...
Lighting changes (brighter), weapon changes (IIRC shotgun was more nerfed), difficulty changes (made much easier), flashlight vs weapon choice removed, more ammo supplied making it easier, and graphics looks worse than original D3 when original D3 has modified cfg (uncompress textures, force modern resolutions) or sikkmod. Worse sound effects. The BFG textures look worse than uncompressed D3 textures. There are also mods for D3 not on BFG including the enjoyable COOP mod, and a VR Mod iirc, as well as as mentioned sikkmod above.

I own disk of the D3 and RoE. For a time Steam sold the original, but pulled it in favor of the BFG. Also, regarding compatibility, I have a folder of D3 and RoE that runs perfect that I made from the disks and I've used on all my modern systems so far without any issue (just move the folder, no copy protection) and occasionally modifying the autoexec cfg.

The original Doom3 came with a pewter figurine. I remember I kept it but I've long since lost it.

I've been after this game for a while, Terminator Resistance is 60% off at Steam. Apparently the reviews were way off the mark, as usual and it's said to be made by fans, for fans (of the terminator lore).

Terminator Resistance was probably the best of the FPS Terminator games, but the in-game sex scenes were stupid and I'm surprised nothing was made of it in the reviews.

I snagged F.E.A.R. on Fanatical at 20% off with an extra Labour Day discount yesterday. Never played it but heard great things about the game.

I still think it has one of the better enemy AIs in a FPS with the way they flank, call out for help and try to flush you out of your position with grenades and/or fire from flanking your position. They don't tend to sit around in one spot, either, and just hide behind one piece of cover.

The expansions for FEAR were decent, too.
The Perseus Mandate
Extraction Point

If you like FEAR, be sure to check out the expansions.

Fortunately the expansions came with the deal :)

Also, there's a low FPS fix for FEAR which I really needed because it was making me dizzy at 15FPS. Also, there's no problem with native resolution at 1440p which is a relief.

So Extraction Point was the final game in the FEAR series? The end just has the protagonist up on a balcony, no closure whatsoever.

No the closure came in FEAR 3
I played it but I don't really recommend it unless you really want the closure like I did.
If you do want to play it I would suggest waiting until you can pick it up for $5 on a Steam Sale.

Edit:
You probably already know this but there is also a FEAR 2 which is a good game and well worth playing but it's not on the same level as the first FEAR which is a classic FPS imo

Your criticism of FEAR 3 is interesting considering John Carpenter worked on it!
https://fear.fandom.com/wiki/John_Carpenter

Although having a movie director involved in the creation of an FPS might be the reason it wasn't as good as the original FEAR?

It just didn't measure up to the first FEAR at all and wasn't as good as the second FEAR. I just got to the point where I wanted to get to the conclusion and get it over with. Maybe your experience will be different but most gamers, including myself, will say that FEAR 3 was the worst of the series.

I'll look into F.E.A.R. 2 then. I just hope it'll run on Windows 10, the system requirements for the whole F.E.A.R. series are hilariously low budget in 2022.

If you get it from GOG you shouldn't have any problems. You also get the DLC Fear 2: Reborn. I'm not sure if you get that DLC with FEAR 2 on Steam.
