Default Best $5 Ever Spent; One Finger Death Punch

I've been looking for a game that doesn't take itself too seriously and doesn't cost a fortune. After trying a few, I have to say that One Finger Death Punch is simply the best $5 I've ever spent.

Typically after a review or a night of editing I need to blow off some steam (typically around 1AM) and this one fits the bill perfectly. Unfortunately, there are two problems:

- Last night a played till 6AM this morning....the time I leave for work.

- My girlfriend couldn't sleep with me yelling "FOOOOOOOK YEAAAAHHH!" at the screen every five minutes. She gave up and ended up playing it on her laptop till 6AM too.

Honestly guys, I never make posts like this but when a game comes around that feels like a G-A-M-E, despite its violence, I think folks around here ought to know.

Give it a try if you want a good time waster.

Haha....I don't think I every would have guessed its any good with a name like that. Hopefully you made it through work today. I may have to give it a go at some point if I am feel like that style of game.

Found this when looking for Grand Master level playthroughs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kN6rYygppY0 (review by TotalBiscuit).

It's a clickfest but man, is it awesome.

I didn't know it was on sale. I found $30 too much.

Yup! Just pulled the trigger on Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition and Injustice Gods Among Us for 13 bucks. Also, Sniper Elite V2 is free for the next 24 hours. From what I have read it's 66/100 on Metacritic and about an 8/10 on game review sites. Very short game and outside the actual sniping mechanic leaves a bit to be desired. But hey, it's free!

"FOOOOOOOK YEAAAAHHH!"

I bought sniper elite v2 after Christmas for $5 or $7 and its pretty good if you like a more sniping oriented game. Definitely worth playing. The only thing that took some getting used to is no jumping....the sniping shot replays are pretty neat.

I'm still working my way through the challenges to unlock more equipment. Some of the stages are just insane and so tense that when you die your like.. How much more was there?

The best thing is how low the requirements are for this... I'm playing on a GT520 nvidia card with no problems.
