    "This game is set in 1940s Los Angeles. It has three add-ons: Arson, Vice and Homicide, which can only run after the initial download is installed. There are another four add-ons. There are also add-ons for Themes and Avatars. Or you can get the entire bundle all at once for an extra $10."

    "Mass Effect 2 is a very popular game but this links to Origin instead of Steam. If it linked to Steam it would address the problem, but since it doesn't link there it doesn't address the problem."

    "This product combines 2 of my favorite things games and movies, so is it a govie? Okay bad joke aside, this really is one of the best-written games I've come across in a long time. It sort of reminds me of a game version of the Taken but way cooler, do you have a particular set of skills?"

    "The problem with the Alan Wake game is that it is just too absorbing. It is best used on a rainy day when you have no pressing obligations because you will not be able to tear yourself away from seeking out the next reveal in the story. Gotta say I am not alone in loving this game; every friend I recommended it to felt the same way. I’d give it an enthusiastic 5 stars. "

    "This game is yet another offering for those that can't get enough violence, and war, set within a dark era of senseless social chaos. There will always be an alternative story to this type of mindset, with this game being yet just another alternative version of dark fantasy game play. For those who prefer living their lives through dark fantasy over reality, then this game is for you."

    "I feel that L.A. Noire is the best Cinematic game in Steam. L.A. Noire is a very fun game that allows you to work in L.A. as a police detective. I enjoyed the game a lot. It was fun use the evidence to solve the crimes. L.A. Noire has proven to be a very interesting concept game indeed. I have gotten sucked into it multiple times and completely lost track of time!"

The Wolf Among Us uses a system of choices and consequential events to make players face the grim reality of this world and deal with them. It is very exciting and tense. "
