Here are some of the problems I'm having with HL2:
- not immersive or scary, because the texture res and polygon counts are low. For example head-crabs should be creepy and terrifying but they just look goofy and annoying.

I just completed (again, for achievements) Half-Life 2 and Half-Life 2: Update. The latter enhances lightning and has a commentary mode. One of the commentaries is that monsters are by design not meant to be scary, but rather gross and ugly.

Freedom Force

I believe both were turn-based during combat so they'd be well suited to a touch interface. They are probably both too obscure now for anyone to really consider porting them, but I'D buy them. ;-)

Actually Freedom Force is "real time with pause" and Summoner is 100% real time (action RPG).

Me too. It was probably in some Humble Bundle.

"Update: A later press release we received from Deep Silver explained that the game will return to Steam a year after release. "Metro Exodus will return to Steam and on other store fronts after 14 February 2020.""

Then it's no big deal to me. I wouldn't have bought it before a year from now anyways. And certainly not on the Epic store.

Far Cry indeed. I still have FC3 installed on the Boot Camp partition of my 2009 cMP. Lots of fun (except for the whole 'protagonist is a d#ck,' thing).

You should like Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon and Far Cry 4 too, then, since they're made from the same mold.
