For old-school gaming nerds, today is the final day of the GOG.com summer sale. There are a ton a great deals on older (DRM-free) RPGs, point-and-clicks, etc. of yesteryear, including:

D&D Package (Baldurs Gate 1/2, Icewind Dale 1/2, Neverwinter Nights 1/2, Planescape: Torment, + others): for $21
Ultima Package (1-9 Complete + Underworld 1/2): $7
Might And Magic Package (1-9 + Crusaders): $7
Sam and Max (Seasons 1-3 Complete): $10
Tex Murphy (1-5): $7
Wing Commander 1-5 + Privateer/Privateer2 + others: $7

Plus they still have a bunch of flash sales on some more recent games. A good way to gear yourself up for the STEAM SUMMER SALE (which supposedly starts tomorrow?).

Hahah most of those are pretty old games! Like, 15-20 years old! I think you could run most of them on a toaster these days.

I don't have the appropriate peripherals (or operating system)

Finally looking like I finish Portal 2 today. My catch-up endeavor took a big step this past week with 3 games going back to GameFly. I'm getting into the meat of the RPGs though so expect it to go more slowly for a while.

Have had the hankering to play some neverwinter nights but lost the install disc so might have to pick that up. Missed some turned based 3.x D&D mechanics.

I loved Privateer. From what I understand, there are some space sims on the way via crowd sourcing, so I might try to get back into that genre. I tried X3, and it was dreadful.

There's Star Citizen (which is being created by Chris Roberts, the guy behind the Wing Commander Games). I backed that (after the Kickstarter campaign ended, though). You can still pre-order the game and get a bunch of extras (including alpha/beta access). I'm pretty stoked about it. I loved the WC franchise when I was younger.

There's also Elite Dangerous, which I guess is a continuation of the Elite series of space sims, buuuut I never played those and know next to nothing about Elite Dangerous as I've already put my money behind Star Citizen. (Also, I'm still pretty wary about heavy usage of procedural generation in games right now...)

The summer sale has been "meh" so far. Seems like everything has been listed 2 or 3 times already because of Flash Sales and voting

Anyone else pick up the new UFC game? It's overall been kinda meh for me. Was expecting better with the way it has been hyped up. Seems they focused more on the production aspect (videos, music, etc.) than the actual game itself but maybe that's just my opinion

I want an open world Zelda so hard, but I don't game often enough anymore to justify buying a console and I still have so many 360 games and PS3 games to get through.

I've limited my Steam Summer Sale purchases to (mostly) small and cheap games: Battleblock Theater, Castle Crashers, Rogue Legacy, Risk of Rain, Don't Starve, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, some Magicka DLC, Syberia 1 + 2, and Hitman: Absolution. My biggest purchase was A Wolf Among Us, which I'd definitely recommend for anyone who likes TellTale Games' "interactive comic-book" type games.

I bought Call of Juarez: Gunslinger for $4.99 on a whim (I really, REALLY don't need any more FPS games) and was pleasantly surprised by it. It had some nice art direction, a great storytelling feel, and a few nice gameplay gimmicks that kept things interesting.

There have definitely been a bunch of excellent, relatively recent games on ridiculous sales (Skyrim: Legendary, Borderlands 2 GOTY, Dark Souls PtD Edition, the Metro series, Saints Row 3 + 4). It's just that this is my third or fourth Steam Summer sale, and I already own all that stuff (plus god knows how many other games I've purchased and not played yet)! I think maybe that's why it feels a little underwhelming to me so far.

PS4. I bought BF4 with it and I'm really enjoying it, it's a ton of fun to squad up with friends. Also pre-ordered Destiny but I'll be trying to hold off on buying too much until 2015. Uncharted, SWBF, Arkham Knight, I'm probably forgetting a few too.

Destiny looks good but I was hoping to see something a little further removed from Halo out of Bungie.

PS4 just seems to be a cut above XB1. BF4 is a ton of fun -- I like it better than COD. Have you played Destiny yet? There is an Alpha available. It's fun, I suppose, but I'm not a Halo guy and it strikes me as Halo 2.0. Also, highly recommend signing the 1 yr contract for PSN/PS+ if you haven't already ($50/12 mos -- great deal). Free games every month, and some good titles too; I've downloaded Don't Starve, Outlast, Trine 2, and a few others.

Uncharted and Arkham are going to be great. Uncharted is probably my favorite series outside of GTA.

Just started Uncharted 1 last night on the PS3. Have 2 and 3 ready to go when I finish (got them all three game-of-the-year-editions for $30 total last Black Friday but hadn't gotten around to opening them). Trying to play through my last-gen backlog before buying a new console. For an almost-7-year-old game, it's held up quite well.

Prepare to be hooked -- they get better as the series goes on.

Yeah, I have several friends that say 2 is one of the best games of all time.
