I tried to play Fallout 1 and 2, but they don't seem to be compatible with my computer and they crap out spectacularly.
Games I got this year:Train Fever
Can't start it. Not compatible with my hardware. At all, it refuses to start with an error. But, I got it on sale for $3 or so. I'll leave it for when I get my next computer.Train Simulator 2017
(now 2018 but it's the same POS)
Got it on the Humble Bundle for pocket change. I had high expectations. I ran it, it did start, and managed to play the very first training scenario - consisting entirely of a straight stretch of track with barely any scenery around it - at 2 to 4 FPS on minimum-est settings. I guess I'll leave it for when I get my next computer.
I'm also amazed at the vast amount of misspellings a big-name game like this has. It feels really sloppy and half-assed. Those are, however, the adjectives used in most of the reviews for the game, so I can't really be surprised. I still had higher expectations.Cities: Skylines
Also from the Humble Bundle. My computer barely runs it and even though I got a mod to reduce the resolution and effects, the performance is still mediocre. Having played it before and having played it again now, I'm still not in love with it. It has everything, but it kind of feels plastic to me. It lacks the solidness Sim City had.Mashinky
Pretty much the only game I played this year. Participated as a tester in my scarce free time before the early access release. Quite good for a one-man shop! Needs lots of polish but it has potential. Glad I got it in exchange for testing, though, because the price is a bit steep for an early access game.
I got a handful of other games on the Humble Bundle that one time but I haven't even installed them.
I guess it was a year of bad investments in terms of gaming
