I decided to finish some games I started long ago and never completed.

Sacred (Gold edition): I don't get how this Diablo II clone got a Very Positive rating on Steam. I completed it this week-end, after letting it sleep on my hard drive for almost two years: I was bored with the game and couldn't bear to finish. Now I did, but it was a chore, and games should be fun instead! Long, repetitive, endless respawning monsters, too much is too much; and some of the worst voice acting I ever suffered from (thanksfully there aren't many dialogs). I'll certainly not play Sacred 2.

Previously: Sniper: Ghost Warrior: now this was fun, despite the typical shortcoming where enemies are able to shoot with supreme accuracy (at least when playing on Hard difficulty) in order to compensate for the dumb AI. I'll certainly play Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 (then 3).

And the silly The Quest for Achievements II. It's also repetitive and not very good, like Sacred, but at least it's over in a few hours. :) With 1510 achievements, how silly can they get?
At least the Sacred intro is really awesome! And Sniper looks good, I'll put it on my wishlist for when I get the chance to play it on a Mac sometime. And tQfA looks really really bad... O_o

Not everyone reads MacRumors and IMG Forums. Feral obviously need to market beyond us.
But I thought the Mac gaming market was so miniscule that the only Mac gamers on the planet were in here?

Okay, not a Mac game, but still a free AAA game. And I guess you could find a wrapper for it, or play it using Nvidias new streaming service: Homefront at Humble Bundle.

Diablo 3 may not be performing well lately, but they made crazy bank on it. It's one of the most popular games of all time (by sales numbers). The game sold 30 million copies as of 2015, so could be at 35ish million copies sold now. It's number 12 on wikipedia's list of best selling games of all time, right beside Skyrim.
I just bought the Diablo III Battle Chest 14 days ago! All the reviews says that the expansion 'fixed' Diablo III, so I look forward to playing through it again, this time with a Crusader, and see the expansion. I borrowed my brothers copy the last time. Back then it didn't hit me nearly the same as Diablo I or II.
