Man I love buying PC Hardware!

So two of my best friends are getting married next month, they haven't been able to get a good PC for years and have missed out on so many games I want them to enjoy: Melissa and I are building them a silent PC for living room use. Some of the parts are donated (me and my family) and the best parts I bought brand new... I bought a video card for 160 bucks on sale, and this is why I was stoked: when I checked out it informed me that it came with three games... All three of which I have been purposely holding off on because they weren't on sale yet and I was broke. Came with Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider, and FC3 Blood Dragon

Totally worth buying that new card! That's over 100 bucks worth of new games I don't have to buy now

I'm going to install windows 7 64-bit, and a bunch of games I know they will love. Anyone else with half a brain that hasn't played any of these, should:

-To The Moon
-Antichamber
-The Swapper
-Gunpoint
-FTL
-Fez
-Bastion
-Witcher 2
-Don't Starve
-Dust: Elysian Tail
-Dear Esther
-Frozen Synapse
-Limbo
-Amnesia: Dark Descent


Basically all the PC only/Indie titles I know they will like and haven't played, they have a 360 but most of this is totally new to them. Should be quite a welcome surprise

... seriously? whaaaat!!!!!

Pro tip: most of those games are uber cheap on Steam since they are indie titles. the ones that aren't can be acquired on sale prices for the cheap. *all* of them are fantastic.
