Game of Thrones: Winter is Coming

Steven Roberts
Written on April 5, 2019
"One of the things I liked most about this game is its environment. Not like some of the medieval games I've played where you only have to hack your way thru hordes of enemies, GoT: WiC also lets me strategize my every move and plan ahead in joining alliances as well as making trades. A must-try for every fledgling Westeros lord!"

    "This is as casual as you could get. Playing a game that features the greatest heroes in the MCU. The game has a number of possible endings but my favorite has got to be beating Loki's butt. I just don't feel the guy even if he turned good at the end (kinda). Still, this is a great game and ranked number one here. Rightly so!"

    "OK, so while this isn't rocket science, playing this game is a whole lot of fun and one of the best casual games on Steam. My friends and I play for a while on Saturday nights and it actually gets us quite fired up. The gameplay is addictive and it's really a great to spend time socially with your friends. We start screaming at each other but it's all in good spirits!"

    "I gotta admit that 2D games are not my cup of tea. Playing Ultimate Chicken Horse changed all that. While I still don't like the majority of 2D games, this one had me hooked from the get-go. A casual game that you can drop and pick-up anytime. But I don't play it casually. There are days that I would play it for hours on end."

    "Minecraft: Story Mode has been around for quite some time now and I only started playing it when my kid introduced me to it. I gotta say that it is impressive. I can only imagine why my kid loves this game. It triggers your imagination whether you like it or not. For a game that's supposed to be played casually, we seem to be playing it more and more. But only during the weekends and only a few hours during the day during school nights. But I seem to be the one spending a lot of time with this game. Funny though, if we aren't playing them on our PC, we are playing them on other platforms. This is the only game we need in our household."

    "Giving this 5 stars isn't enough. I would rate this with 10 stars if I could. I am a fan of Star Wars and playing this rekindles and brings back feelings I thought I've lost when I grew up. Even if it's a Lego game, it stayed true to the Universe that George Lucas created all those years ago. All I am saying is that I wouldn't pick another game for quite some time, I guess. The gameplay is really good and the graphics are fantastic for a Lego game."

    "I don't have a lot of time to play video games, so when I download something from Steam, I want it to be easy to play in small chunks but also fun and distracting from other life things. Beat Cop is really interesting--in choosing your own morality, you're also defining certain things about yourself. I like games like this a lot. "

    "Beat Cop is a fine time waster but as we're well beyond Atari, this retro-style game has no appeal. Graphics are horrible for what you see nowadays and the retro look just does not hold my attention. The storyline is good, but you would think the developers could put more effort into it."

    "For folks my age, "Ticket to Ride" can only mean a great Beatles Song. So this game has a lot to live up to right off the bat. But at least it is old school in that it's an actual board game. Plus it's got outstanding reviews (and a lot of them) on Amazon."

    "Not a Steam game at all, but actually a 2 player board game. It wasn't my usual cup of tea, but it's well designed and fun, nonetheless. If board games are your jam and you like trains, then this is without a doubt, right up your alley. "

    "Ticket to Ride is a great board game and now it's a PC game too! It works better as a mobile game, honestly, since you can pass and play easier, but this works well to get your fix in if you need it."

    "I love games that involve music and wanted something fun to kill some time with. Melody's Escape is a quick little time waster that keeps you entertained for a long time. The fact that you can use your own music really adds a fun and personal part to the game."

    "For a casual game, this is actually too casual that you will lose interest within 5 minutes of playing. What's worse is that I paid for this freaking game. I want my money back."

    "Sometimes you just want a game to play and relax, casual style. I found Melodys Escape to be perfect for this. It uses your own musical library to create a playlist that you can interact with. I found it on Steam and it is definitely worth checking out."

    "I don't think this is the best casual game on steam, however it is a good one and has positive reviews."
