These are the games that simply do their best at having fun, while some might have a great story others might not. But they deserve to be highlighted just because of how freaking fun they are.

Kerbal Space Program
Recommended September 22, 2014

Launch your Kerbals into space in this sandbox title in which you build a spaceship and watch as it (likely) horribly fails or completes your objective.

Assassin’s Creed® IV Black Flag™
Recommended September 22, 2014

The boating mechanics are amazing, the game play is smooth and fluid, the story is fleshed out. Over all an amazing game

Killer Instinct
Recommended October 3, 2017

The absolute best fighting game on the market, easy to lean but hard to master. With a diverse roster and plenty of content both in singleplayer and online it is easily a steal for its listed price.

Wolfenstein: The New Order
Recommended September 24, 2014

The amazing rebirth of the classic shooter. A fantastic shoot em up, with an amazing story, robot Nazi's, dual wield weapons, and laser rifles!

Recommended September 22, 2014

An extremely fun, and challenging cops and robbers game, it even gets better when you level up and turn yourself into the ultimate criminal.

Recommended April 24, 2017

A shining example of how Early Access should be handled: patches as often as possible and monthly content updates. However, its most alluring factor is just how damn fun the game is already.

Just Cause™ 3
Recommended December 1, 2015

Intense and action packed. Creativity dominates your plans of attack in bombastic battles that would make Micheal Bay blush.

Rocket League®
Recommended July 25, 2015

Whether you like sports or not, Rocket League is fast paced competitive action that anyone can pick up and play. It's like soccer, but with rocket cars.

Prison Architect
Recommended September 22, 2014

With a new campaign mode and escape mode Prison Architect just got that much more value on an already superb game. A must buy for simulation game fans.

A crazy, insane, and fun adventure where you can wreak havoc in a virtual Steelport, with godlike powers and wield the unstoppable Dubstep gun!

Team Fortress 2
Recommended September 22, 2014

A great FPS that requires Teamwork and Strategy to be successful, Microtransactions are mainly cosmetic, guaranteed to create an addiction to boxes.

Free to Play

Challenging without being unfair, MGSV is a fun title that encourages planning, recon and creativity while playing. Awesome as puppy paw pads.

STRIDER™ / ストライダー飛竜®
Recommended September 23, 2014

A great Metrovania Sidescrolling Hack and Slash which is a revival of the classic Strider franchise, definitely worth 15$ the porting is ok too.

Hand of Fate
Recommended February 21, 2015

Arkham mixed with Board Games, Card Games and done in a Roguelike fashion. An odd but genius combination which provides fun for hours upon hours on end.

Recommended September 15, 2016

While its learning curve is steeper than most games because of its complexity but that is exactly what makes RimWorld so engrossing.

Middle-earth™: Shadow of Mordor™
Recommended January 10, 2015

If both the Assassin's Creed, and The Batman: Arkham series, along with LOTR made a baby, this would be the result. One of the best games of 2014!

Road Redemption

A funny arcade style bike racing game, with a fun combat system plenty of weapons (including explosives). Great fun with a multiplayer mode.

Great First Person Shooter with RPG elements and a pretty good story involving human augmentation which you may or may not of asked for.

Never before has a pixelated world felt so alive. From farming, to mining, to spelunking this is the true PC successor to Harvest Moon. Made by one man.

Planet Coaster
Recommended November 26, 2016

The developers of RCT3 have brought back the theme park simulator genre in a gorgeous new engine. Steam Workshop support is the icing of the cake.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

While the port is spotty in more places than one, Mankind Divided augments the gameplay of Human Revolution although the story isn't quite as engaging.

Batman: Arkham City - Game of the Year Edition

Fantastic, great story, great combat and stealth system along with a great slew of villains and boss fights. What more could you ask for?

One of the most innovative shooters i've played in years and quite hard as well. Albeit story mode is short, challenges and endless help with content.
