'Free' games (mostly for PC):

Will add links later. For now, use google. Games are vaguely ordered in how much they are worth your time.

  • Juniper's Knot (Steam Page) - Highly Recommended

    • A short, English visual novel. Can finish in one sitting (20-40mins? not sure how long). Should be played in the middle of the night with the lights off with decent headphones/speakers (it's NOT a horror game - this is just for setting the atmosphere). For PC AND iOS!
    • Non-steam download page
  • Cave Story - Highly Recommended

    • Platformer with similar game mechanics to Metroid (or so I hear). I really enjoyed this game. After you have finished it, read a guide for extras/easter eggs
    • There is a version on Switch/Steam with upgraded graphics, but many prefer the original free version. The steam version is here (not free!)
  • Mother 3 - Highly Recommended

    • Give it a go, even if you don't usually play RPGs (I usually don't, but I still enjoyed this game immensely). Technically, this game is not free.
  • Tyrian

    • Old shoot'em up, now free due the original licences being nice. Google OpenTyrian for downloads - no need to run on dosbox since it was ported to x86
  • Osu!

    • Rhythm game (basically Elite Beat Agents), very fun as no thinking is required. May injure your wrist if you play using a mouse. my osu! page
    • If you experience visual lag on Intel integrated graphics, disable Speedstep (ie make your CPU run at max clock speed constantly)!
  • Ib - Highly Recommended

    • a horror/puzzle game. Better described at the english translation website. I suggest using a walkthrough after you have finished it once to see what you missed/didn't miss or if you get stuck. Now that I think about it, it was quite beautiful.
  • Embric of Wulfhammer's Castle Moderately Recommended

    • "Embric of Wulfhammer's Castle is a "sprite opera" made by Saint Bomber in RPG Maker 2003."
    • When you get stuck (believe me, you will), you can use this Google Doc Walkthrough

Paid games:

  • Phoenix Wright Series (GBA/NDS)

    • really liked the first game - Recommended
  • Zero Escape Series (PC, NDS) - Recommended

    • One of my favorite game series. Some of my grips have been fixed in the recent steam release of the first two games.
    • Note that the third game in the series is very different to the first two games. Would reccomend you try the first two games first.
  • Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective (NDS, iOS) - Recommended

    • fun game with a nice story (by the same director as phoenix wright)
  • Ever17: the out of infinity (pc , psp, ps2, dreamcast, xbox360 (remake)...) - Recommended, with guide

    • if you enjoy sci-fi and not so straightforward stories, you should play this game. if you get stuck while playing it, ask me and i'll be your mentor (lol)
    • strongly suggest you use a walkthrough if you get stuck. GameFAQ has a fairly good 'no spoiler' walkthough.
    • the game is no longer sold, so you will need to obtain it by other means...
    • would not suggest to people who are new to general science fiction themes/ideas as it may be....confusing
    • This is just one game in the 'infinity' series: "Never 7: The End of Infinity,Remember 11: The Age of Infinity, 12Riven ―the Ψcliminal of integral―, and Code_18" -from wikipedia
  • Planescape: Torment (PC) - Hightly Recommended. There is one point you can get stuck in this game...if you get stuck, look it up.

    • NOTE before buying: Read the comments section of the GOG page. Probably still worth buying, especially when it is on sale.
    • One of my favorite pieces of media, however it's due to the overall presentation of the game story, world, etc, not because of the gameplay of the game.
    • ask someone about the game. there are many small things which do not spoil anything and do not detract from the game's experience but will help you play the game
    • If you are the type to just finish a game quickly and not read any of the text...don't play this game
    • Do all the quests you can find, talk to every major NPC. Save often. Sometimes you might not be able to go back.
    • Supposedly there is a 'upgraded' version on GOG, but I hear it has some bugs. Look into this before buying it.
    • There is a sequel called 'Torment: Tides of Numenera'. While still good, I don't think it is as good as the first game.
  • Umineko Series (PC, PS3) - Steam Question Arcs - Steam PS3 patch page - Recommended

    • Very long, definitely only consider this if you are willing to commit to it
    • Personally I feel like I enjoyed the first (1-4) more than the second(5-8), although both are still great
    • There are mods which add voice acting, upgraded sprites and backgrounds ported from the PS3 game
      • The 07th mod patched version patches the MG release to add in as much as is feasible with the MG engine
      • The Umineko Project version is (kind of) a script interpreter for the PS3 game, so it's much closer to PS3 game. This mod is harder to obtain, and the Answer arcs aren't fully complete yet (as of 2018)
      • You might find some older 'umitweak' releases floating around - these patched the original game which only ran at 640x480 resolution.
  • Antichamber - Recommended

    • First person mind bending puzzle game. Often on sale on steam.
  • Finding Paradise - Recommended

    • Sequel to 'To the Moon'. Definitely worth a look if you played the first game.
    • "A story-driven experience about two doctors traversing through a dying man's memories to artificially fulfill his last wish"
    • I recommend this to pretty much everyone. Mainly a story driven experience.
