In a dystopic future akin to Brave New World - (1932 book), by Aldous Huxley, everyone is lost in a virtual reality, playing a game to take control of the world's largest corporation.

This movie is parasitic to the childhoods of old men and permanent-children. It's worth a watch if you're over 40, otherwise it'll be a fairly confusing mess of references.

A top-down action fighting semi-roleplaying game.

I played quite a bit of it until early 2015. Spiral Knights is an exceptional game, but unfortunately as of the last time I played it, it lacks balance and so it lacks variety.

This is an exception to Java sucks, therefore everything made with Java sucks.

A zombie-survival first person shooter that I played the hell out of until late-2015. It still had a very active player base.

A roguelike game with a tactical side to it.

I like it, but only played a little of it as this sort of game doesn't seem to grab me any more. Definitely recommended for fans of this style of game. Don't be put off by its graphics. Like a good book, the pictures are in your head.

A tower defence game with space ships.

Highly customizable and extremely fun, but with poor replayability. Worth a bit of coin if you're a fan of tower defence games.

I didn't take notes from back then. All I have are some saved fleets. Some of the game gets extremely hard, especially with technology restrictions. I fucking hate having those restrictions. This was a big downer to playing all the way through.

Bonus points for the author throwing away all sense of storyline. Fuck all that shit, I just want gameplay. I'm not joking.

I never tried its expansion Parasites.

Balloons threaten monkeys, and you coordinate their defence.

I'm big on tower defence games, and this is a very good one.

The flash version is liked. The Steam version is disliked. Maybe the more adult multiplay on the Steam version would make it worth some money, but not at its price.

A great MMORPG with spectacular mechanics but no endgame.

I had a lot of fun with it way back when, but my most recent visit had me wandering around in circles for an inexcusable length of time. An utter failure. Still highly recommended.

If you have Borderlands 2, stick with it until you've played through it, through its true vault hunter mode and through every. single. DLC. There are a lot.

Then buy this, but only if you're a serious fan of Borderlands 2.

If you are new to the series and new to Borderlands 2, go buy and play Borderlands 2! It's great. This is just more of that, but with added obnoxiousness.

Like all the other "safe" games Blizzard has been creating lately, Heroes of the Storm is an accessible MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) game. Pretty, plays well, and reasonably fun.

I play a bunch of it, and like it. I don't PvP. The versus AI started out being really boring but improved a lot over time.
