    Lols hey old man, didn't think you were that old to be called old man. :p anyway, thanks for the giveaway. Wasn't able to participate in the steam sale because it was a down time at work, so no pay. Hahaha.

    Would really love to get that A10C thing, or Batman Arkham City. My pops loves those games as well and I'd like him to also be able to play when he goes home for vacation. Cheers!

    I wonder just how old is he :D Thanks for doing this again Old Man!

    I didn't buy Batman Arkham City because of its terrible DRM, plus GFWL... no thank you! I was waiting for the price to drop even further than $7.50 when it was on sale, but that never happened. I guess now is my chance.
    Always enjoyed flight sims, A-10C would be a great addition. It was still quite expensive when it was on sale, didn't think it was worth it.

    Out of that list, I would definitely recommend SW:Kotor for any Bioware or RPG fan. It's one of my top RPGs of all time, honestly, they should have made SW:Kortor III rather than The Old Republic.

    Good luck everyone!

    I dunno, I played 20 hours of KoTOR a few years ago before finally uninstalling it - late in the Dantooine stuff if I remember right. It's easily number one on my list of games that failed to live up to the hype. I've heard it shines later on, but slogging through the part that I played was enough to turn me off for good. With a long game backlog and the need to spend more time productively and less time gaming, it's off the table for good as far as I'm concerned.

    It's also the only game in my experience that has made animated dice-roll combat even less appealing than actually rolling a bunch of dice - at least with dice you can imagine the character's doing something impressive, rather than watching the same muddily-animated lightsaber swings over and over while waiting to hear the *hit* soundbyte.

    if you play the jedi guardian/sentinel class, the old republic is passable for a KOTOR sequel (barely)

    Haven't tried the first game, but I loved the sequel. KOTOR 2 was a great game IMO.

    Hi Old Man,

    thanks for hosting this giveaway, I usually don't buy games cause I'm too poor to. Also, my PC usually screams at me asking why I haven't upgraded yet.

    Indeed. It was the fifth character I leveled to 50 so I was kicking myself a bit for not playing it sooner, and I was getting down on the game for not feeling like the KotOR 3-6 that the devs said it would be. Leveling up a Bounty Hunter and whooping on force users was too tempting not do first though.

    I liked 2 more than the first. The NPC party members, enemies, and dialogue were just a lot better. Going through Taris in 1 was so boring that I just modified a save file for my third playthrough so I could skip most of it.

    Thank you, Old Man! I didn't get these games on the cheap because I'm way too indecisive and wasn't sure what to get!
