Ah! Sounds like it's partially my kind of game - sometimes that's exactly what I want, to have a quick game that I die fast at and that's hard to beat, and sometimes it drives me up a wall. That's how I feel about The Binding of Isaac at least.
Steam's great for indie games! Plus now all the biggest games are on Steam as well as whatever console anyway. I just wish I had more time for games; even grinding on FFX to fill up a sphere grid has been put aside because work and classes.
Those are some old school games though! Relatively at least. I think I might own ME but have never played it. Or maybe that's Half-Life. Or honestly, maybe both. Pretty much the epitome of that gamer that has hundreds of games she never played.
For the most part just RPGs and JRPGs. I've been getting more into PC gaming though (Steam does wonders when you're sans PS3 for months at a time) so I'm really into Skyrim right now too. Mass Effect as well haha.
