People have already covered most of the stuff that immediately springs to mind.

Scary (genuinely unlike recent games): Amnesia Dark Descent.
Multiplayer variety: Garrys Mod (Try trouble in terrorist town).

OK, this is (I think) a dumb question, and I'm pretty sure I know the answer anyway.

If my current computer dies and I upgrade to a new and better one. When I sign into Steam on my new computer, all the games I've bought will be available for me to re-download and play again, right?

Both are indeed brilliant games.

Anyway, here's my recommendations:

80 days
Audiosurf 2 (first is great but this is better)
Bridge Constructor (far more fun than it sounds)
Cogs (might depend how you feel about sliding-tile puzzles)
Eufloria HD (nice relaxing, simple RTS, looks lovely too)
Grim Dawn (Diablo style ARPG)
Hexcells (utterly superb and incredibly challenging puzzler)
The Impossible Game (lives up to its name, will induce many rage quits)
NEO Scavenger (AKA post apocalyptic hobo sim)
Paint it Back (Picross, need I say more)
Quell trilogy (nice relaxing puzzler)
Shadowrun Returns (Gritty cyberpunk/fantasy turn based strategy)
Shatter
Skulls of the Shogun
Sword of the Stars: The Pit (sci-fi rogue like, with permadeath)
Toki Tori (looks like a kids game but is fiendishly difficult, plays like Chuckie Egg)
Toki Tori 2 (as above but this one is a metroidvania type affair)

Not entirely sure where to post this but GOG.com currently has a winter sale on, runs until the 13th December.

I get paid tomorrow! :toot:

Anyone mentioned World of Goo yet? Cracking game. Top draw music. I played it on Wii but I imagine it's great on PC too. Thought of it as it's in that gog sale.

Frozen Synapse is also currently on sale, which I don't think anyone has mentioned.

Jade Empire's currently free on Origin, and is quite a big game, so not sure if that counts.

Here's another question about Steam. I'm currently playing using a USB N64 controller but some of the buttons are mapping to non-intuitive places on the pad by default (e.g. in Super Meat Boy, jump maps to the right C-button).

From what I can tell there's no way to adjust default button configurations within the Steam platform itself. Do I have this right or am I missing it?

If there isn't a way to adjust this in Steam; would I be right in thinking that whether or not button configuration is possible is game-specific and would be an available option within a game if offered?

All configs are game-specific - steam is just a wrapper to launch games from. Also why a usb N64 pad? Surely it doesn't have enough buttons for most modern games? Get a wired 360 pad; windows will detect and install proper drivers and loads of games know exactly what to do with it.

Only USB pad I have.

On a related note; anyone know of any good budget USB controllers? :slol:

You don't have an Xbox pad knocking around at all?

Wired xbox 360 pads are about £25 everywhere - amazon, tesco, argos etc. and will last for ages. As I said before, windows has drivers for them and the overwhelming majority of games will detect them and have the relevant on-screen button prompts for them too. At this point getting anything else is pointless.

EDIT: in that case get a wireless receiver. I have one and it picks up wireless pads fine.

I don't think One Finger Death Punch has been mentioned yet but I'd definitely put it forward as one to try. The basic premise is that you get attacked from either the left and right by bad guys and you have to hit the buttons in time to attack them first but there is a little more to it than that.

If youre a fan of old schol point and click adventures like Monkey Island, i recently finished Dropsy and its legitimately the best point and click ive played since Grim Fandango. Its got gorgeous pixel art, an outstanding soundtrack, and the story is great. Its a little off putting at first as theres no dialogue at all, all npc's speak in speech bubbles filled with little pictograms, but once you get over it, its seriously the best point n click in well over a decade.
