Aliens come to ruin an already-ruined earth.. which also already has aliens.
Quite an excellent game.

The Koreans invade the United States, and you are a freedom fighter who hides behind invulnerable cover in an on-rails playable cutscene.
alt-F4 as soon as I was placed in a "home base" which forced me to RP-walk everywhere. Inexcusable.
Spiderman, but with guns.
I get that this has some interesting core gameplay, but it's just not fun because the controls are too awkward.
A combined first-person shooter and tower-defense game.
Seems pretty cute, but I hate tower defense games which have multiple entrances.
A space simulator fps thingy.
While it looked quite good at a glance, when actually trying it it fell flat. When a game cannot lean on cutting-edge technology, it has to have solid gameplay. It didn't feel good at all to me. I guess No Man's Sky - (2016 game) spoiled me.
A third/first-person FPS/MMORPG, self-described as a massively multiplayer online wargame. Firefall - (2014 game)'s spiritual successor.
DO NOT BUY. DO NOT TRY.
Explore, survive, gather and trade while making your way to the galactic core.
Every single described goal of this game has failed. It is a bad flight-simulator, with bad crafting, bad technology, and bad survival mechanics. It is set on procedurally generated planets so vast that nothing matters, in a procedurally-generated universe so vast that nothing matters. What's worse is that it is so godawfully crowded with hand-holding that it becomes both easy and repetitive. Being ugly and with abysmal performance, it's not even an exploration time-waster.
Perhaps in some years they will change/fix many of its issues, but I believe it has a fundamental casualness to it that anchors its core gameplay problems. This is not a game made for gamers.
2017-05-07 update: I tried it again, and it just isn't worth it. If its graphics were the same as before (they're busted now) then maybe. I have another video card but I'm not going to swap things around or fiddle with installing an old version of my card's drivers. I just don't want to bother any more.
Shoot stuff and things.
I played the open beta. I found it fun, but not worth money. When I was given it for free a while later, I didn't find it all that great.
Has graphics reminiscent of Sanctum 2 - (2013 game).
A zombie-survival first person shooter that I played the hell out of until late-2015. It still had a very active player base.
