Also check out GOG.com , they got a really good list of games.
I love GOG, but I want to stick with Steam / Origin to keep things simple.
We played Age of Empires against each other thats fun! Anything like that. Red Alert. All the classics ;-)
I'm not so sure how she'd take to RTS games, but I think I picked up AOE II HD in the sales, so I might pop it on sometime when she's around.
Well, Final Fantasy 7 and 8 are available through Steam, they're the de facto JRPG's to go for.
I can't really think of any more other than The Last Remnant... which is a bit flakey.
Yeah, I want to get her into FFVII, but it seems to require a lot of fiddling. The models have not aged very well and the midi soundtrack puts me off, never mind her. I have got it on my PC and I've picked up the 20gb TIFA Bootleg Mod Collection, but I don't fancy fiddling with / downloading (she lives in the sticks, so Hick Internet is all she gets) that to her laptop.
I'll probably set it up on my rig at some point to see how she fairs with it, I don't really want to go through it all on her laptop to find she doesn't enjoy it.
I've got both of these on my rig and they're certainly on the list.
Get her a controller for Big Picture Mode.
Heavily modded Skyrim
And I second the Guacamelee nomination
Limbo is a good shout, its another I've got on the list of things to play with her. I've got Skyrim & Bastion and I think she would struggle a lot with those, however I will take a look at Fez / Spelunky, thanks.
I picked up Guacamelee! Gold Edition in the sales and I'm yet to play it, hearing good things about it though.
Guacamelee is a great platformer, it also features co-op, if you hadn't seen that one yet.
There aren't a ton of turned based RPGs out there, and most of the good JRPGs I can think of aren't on PC, but as noted above, FF7 and 8 are in the Steam store now. There's also X-Com, which is turned based, but Sci-Fi. You could also try the Civilization series if turned based is her thing.
I've got XCOM, but I'm not 100% sure if she'd get into that... but then again, she's a bit of a Star Trek nerd, so it's a possibility.
Civilization is a very good shout, I'd forgotten about that one. I've got Civ 5 on Steam, but it's not really my thing, however if it'll run on her laptop, I'll definitely give it a go.
Maybe, but I don't think she has the Patience for that
If your GF is into Civ, then I suggest you marry her ASAP
Btw, 2014 is a great year for turn-based RPGs. http://www.neogaf.co...ad.php?t=741172
I wish I didn't have a job and could play most of them...
Haha, if either of us cared for marriage, I think it's a dead-cert that it would happen!
Thanks for that link, I'll trawl through it tonight.
