    "I love to play the video games and this one is about war so there is much action to be had. The name of it is the Total War: Arena and it is soo good! You can even play it for free, online with other people that are also online. It is a war simulation game and boy is it a fun one, you should play too!"

      "Never realized how much of a joy it is to play a Halo game that isn't a first person. It's thrilling, exciting, and challenges your mind to create strategies and positions. This is a must play for every Halohead that's also a fan of strategy games imo"

      "I love top-down shooter games and wanted to find a good one on Steam. I found The Binding of Isaac. This game is so awesome. It's where you play as a guy named Isaac and have to escape your nutty mother who wants to sacrifice you. It's really immersive and addicting. I've played it for hours at a time. The graphics are simple, but that's fine since the game is so fun. I highly recommend this game to all gamers. Check it out now!"

If you love tactical shooter games, you'll fall in love with this one. They really make sure to put you right in the middle of the action which I always enjoy in shooter games."

The action can be pretty frantic, but not overwhelmingly so, and the graphics and visual effects are quite good and match very well with the art style. Most importantly to me, it was a good deal of fun to play."
