Please Recommend Some Older, Cheaper Games

My computer's older, which means I can't play les jeux du jour, but it does mean I can probably get some good, solid games from a few years ago for a decent price on Steam. But which games should I get? Steam has some recs based on my purchases which skew to RPG and strategy, but I'd like to hear from you guys. Tastes and specs below! [more inside]

Western JRPGs

So, the recent release of South Park: The Stick of Truth got me thinking about western rpgs that use JRPG style combat. I've enjoyed the South Park game, and one of my all time favorite games is Anachronox, which fused JRPG style combat with a ridiculous sci-fi storyline. Does anyone know of any games similar to South Park or Anachronox that aren't actual JRPGs (which I tend to hate for their aesthetic and narrative choices)?

Help me learn to play my (video game) hockey position

I'm hoping someone can direct me to an online (preferably free) resource that teach position-based hockey fundamentals. Where to be, when to crash or set up behind the net, how to adjust when your teammates go here or there, how to keep the puck moving and create a solid offense. Basically, fundamental positioning and how to run an offense. [more inside]

Help me identify an end-of-level jingle from an unknown Gameboy-era game

I've had a sound effect from a video game stuck in my head for the past few years, and I'd like to figure out where it came from. I'm almost certain it's a jingle that plays right before an end-of-level gate opens in a 2D game, possibly on the Gameboy. Here's a transcription of the melody. Any ideas?

First Video Game Where You Saved at Campfires?

In TOMB RAIDER and DARK SOULS, you save your game at camp fires. My stepson claims that Tomb Raider took the idea from Dark Souls. This seems really unlikely, but I haven't played earlier Tomb Raider games, and I can't recall where you save in other games, so I can't back it up. What's the earliest game you've played where you save your game at campfires?

Monkey pull lever, monkey get what?

Many years ago, I used to play a game on my elderly Mac called "Enigma", by Freeverse. Not the modern Oxyd clone, but a version of Mastermind, where you had to deduce a pattern of colored dots given a certain number of hints. You put in your guess and pulled a lever; the game would taunt you, make weird comments, or throw a monkey wrench into things and screw up your guesses. The premise of the game was that you were solving the puzzles in order to open a golden briefcase. I never did manage to get the briefcase open--can anyone tell me what was inside? [more inside]

Looking for a nonviolent, relaxing, top-down building game with a plot

I liked Sim City, Age of Empires, and Civ, but I don't feel like fighting or freaking out about taxes or earthquakes. Click-management puzzle games and sandboxes are just boring. Glitch was awesome-- nonviolent, open-ended, good graphics-- except it wasn't really a top-down building game and I don't care about involving friends. Katamari Damacy was great, but too fast-paced and again, not a building game. What game am I looking for? Preferably for a PC; can't do zombies or apocalypse as a theme, very light cartoon violence might be OK, don't care what era it's from. Puzzles or video board games might be OK if they have complexity beyond the actual game. I'm aware that this might be too specific; looking for suggestions even if they aren't a perfect fit.

I want to play GTA 5 the instant it comes out. I'm also lazy.

Hope me, mefites with experience pre-ordering video games in Canada! I want to play GTA 5 right away but I don't really have the inclination to go to the store and get one. I ordered it from amazon.ca with priority shipping (1-2 days) but my order confirmation says the delivery estimate is Sept 23/24 - this is not ideal: release date is Sept 17. a) it this in your experience correct? and b) can another online retailer do better?

Can anyone help me identify a couple of arcade games?

I spent a lot of time in arcades growing up, and I remember the names of most of the games I enjoyed, but there are two the names of which I have forgotten. This was during the late 80s/early 90s; I was living in Italy at the time, and the games must have been imported. I don't recall perfectly, but I'm guessing the graphics were at least as good as the home consoles which were out around that time. No photos: I'll try to describe them. Help a guy out? [more inside]

Help me decide what to play next!

For years, I've lived by an absolutely inflexible rule: I will play only one console video game at a time until I beat it. I'm about to finish Deus Ex: Human Revolution on the 360, and my next game will be either Skyrim or Batman: Arkham City. Each is well-reviewed--which one should I play first? Heavy weight is given to freedom/non-linear gameplay and short load times. Again, this is on the 360. [more inside]

Fixing an XBOX I just bought off eBay

So after years of using roommates' machines, and having finished a well-paying highly stressful recent job, I rewarded myself by buying an XBox Slim off of eBay. Which I guess was foolish of me. The thing arrived with only the 4GB hard drive, so I had to buy a decent-sized one in order for it to do anything, and even then it started freezing nearly constantly. If left off overnight it will start up and work for maybe an hour before freezing at first, and then quickly degrade to the point where it can't even start up properly. [more inside]

An early- to mid-90s computer game about mystery-solving kids?

I'm trying to remember the name of a computer game I used to play in the early- to mid-90s. I think it was a series set in suburbia with two kids (possibly brother and sister?) tasked with solving crimes. It had suspects, a map with possible locations, and it was probably vaguely educational. It was not Carmen Sandiego-related. What was the name of the game?

PC gaming veteran, returning to creating Rollercoasters & Civilizations

I used to play a lot of PC games, but in the past 10 years moved towards console gaming. I realise I've missed a whole era of games that only really work with a mouse and keyboard. My absolute favourites were creative, engaging, long play games, such as Rollercoaster Tycoon and Civilization. I never really played to win. I played for creative ends. The best times I had playing Rollercoaster Tycoon was in sandbox mode the only limits being my imagination. Those were the days. What (PC) games offer the equivalent of this now? [more inside]

Good video games where spectators can participate?

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed playing Walking Dead together. I controlled it, but she made all the dialogue choices and helped solve puzzles. What are some other games like that? She's not really a gamer and doesn't really get FPS controls (yet) so stuff like co-op portal and even minecraft is out. I'm going to try and see how it goes with Braid next, but are there any other games like Walking Dead where people who aren't actively controlling it can help make meaningful decisions or contributions? I was also thinking Heavy Rain, but I don't have a Playstation, only a pc and Xbox.
