Windows 10: Some games advice?

    Some games advice?

    I have got a few quid to spend on some steam and/or origin games. There are some games I'd like to try but some of them have sequels. I know sequels don't necessarily mean better. I only really want to one version of that type of game so I just wondered what you guys thought was the best one to go for out of ...

    company of heroes 1 or 2
    the sims 3 or 4 (for my wife)
    Bioshock 1, 2 or Infinite
    Borderlands 1 or 2 or I think there is a prequels version too

    other games I heard were really good were 'Her Story', '80 Days', 'the Escapists 2', 'Prison Architect' and 'We Happy Few'. I read the steam reviews but seems like have to wade through lots of garbage comments and am not entirely sure they are accurate representation. Also are there any games out there like 'Grand Prix Legends' as that was a classic but it's really old and from what I understand extremely difficult to make it run on windows 10

    i can probably only get 3 or 4 of these and it might be a long time before I can think about getting other games so wanted to get it right.

    Bioshock 1 and 2 for sure, it is the game with a story. 3 is a bit insane, but it is OK.
    But you try to get the original, remaster crashes all the time, if you can run it all.

    This webpage shows deals and bundles, you can import your wishlist.
    It will send you an email, if there are any:

    This is a comparison web for steam key sales:

    That is some good advice guys. I ended up downloading bioshock series on steam so will look to play them if the wife ever lets me. Plus I got company of heroes 2. One more game I used to like was dungeon keeper. I see similar modern day games exist in the shape of Dungeons plus Dungeons 2 and 3, anyone ever played any of these?

    I played company of heroes, but i dislike it, tanks shoot infantry and crater appears under them and still they are almost undamaged.
    And your unit control doesn't always decide who wins the fight, it is random.
    And since they added brits, there is building, in which are camping mortarts and you have nothing to deal with this, if you didn't bought brits as well.
    I prefer starcraft, i am playing starcraft remastered currently and have much fun, but there are long wait time since game is almost dead, something like 500 players on eu.

    CoH2 is a harsh mistress! But it can be very rewarding in team MP games.
