An annoying click-timed game with no ability to easily sell junk inventory.
A basic tower defense game, except you have a ship.
Properly titled X-Morph: Defense
Aliens come to ruin an already-ruined earth.. which also already has aliens.
Quite an excellent game.

You are part of an elite squad who freeze time to move near cover and get shot in the head.
I guess they didn't play their own game, because there are obvious flaws. This would have been more fun if they got rid of the whole moving around like an RPG. Like the old X-COM ga-- oh wait, the old games are just better. Why was this game made?
Properly titled The Bureau: XCOM Declassified
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.
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.
Like scrabble with words, assemble phrases to do varying degrees of insult-damage.
This definitely should appeal to some people, but it doesn't appeal to me. I think this would be especially attractive to people with an Android phone.
Be a gang member, run around in a sandbox world and shoot stuff, I guess.
Note that the original Saints Row - (2006 game) was only released for the Xbox 360.
Build and expand a space-faring race who learns they are not alone in the universe.
Master of Orion - (1993 game) but with updated graphics and a confusing interface. I expect would have loved this in the past, but now it's just awkward. I'll still tag this as 'liked', as it's pretty good. It's very hard in the eyes. Take a lot of breaks.
Extremely stupidly hard.. and confusing. I'm shelving it. I only paid $12 USD for it, so it's not a big loss.. still, I wish the UI was better and the tutorial was better and the gameplay was better..
Laser things, move things, push things and find your way through semi-puzzle stuff.
Not open-world, and definitely "on rails", but it does give a lot of power to the user as to how to fart around to progress.
While overall good, the controls are wonky and cliffs are obnoxious. There should be no falling off mechanic and the game should instead dangle the player for a moment and never let them fall.
