Stephen   Cheshire, United Kingdom (Great Britain)
I've been gaming since the early 80's & if you count arcade machines since the late 70's & I loved to play tabletop RPG's like Tunnels & Trolls (still got my rule book) Dungeons & Dragons. My 1st computer based RPG's included Darkland and The Elder Scrolls: Arena, both of which enthralled me.

The mid 2000's saw a car travelling in excess of 60 mph hit me from behind while I was cycling to work & left me with 4 broken vertebrae & a serious head injury. I landed on my coccyx & instantly lost almost 4'' in height because the spine was crushed vertically on impact with the road & due to the head injury/brain damage, I no longer produce 3 essential hormones. I was sent home with no treatment because they totally missed the breaks & refused to scan my head; consequently, I'm now seriously disabled & have to take opiate based medication (Fentanyl and Oxycodone) & inject myself daily with hormones. It took a year for the breaks to be diagnosed and 7 years for the brain damage to be confirmed. :trolol: Thankfully gaming saved my sanity. I found that playing games really helped with my pain management & kept my mind active.

Some community members call me a game collector, but I'm not; I buy games both to play & enjoy as well as to help with my pain management. I'm presently {since mid 2017} on a sabbatical from buying games apart from certain games that I can afford from what is left in my Steam wallet, most of which comes from selling games from my inventory,as well as trading cards & Steam wallet presents from my two adult kids. Also, I :spirallove: gaming. My favourite genres include 'in no particular order' RPG's, RTS, FPS, Shmups, Breakouts, Wacky & Psychedelic Indie games, Survival games, Simulation & Tower Defence games. To be honest, I enjoy most genres apart from time management games, but what I play usually depends on my mood, whether a friend is available for coop gaming, or what I've just purchased.

Some of my all time favourite games include Darkland, the Elder Scrolls franchise, Civilisation, Baldurs Gate, Geometry Wars, Raptor, Myst & Riven, R Type, Space Invaders, Ikaruga, Cossack's: The Art of War, The Total War franchise, The Longest Journey, Under A Steel Sky, Aky's XP Breakout, Ricochet Infinity, Incrediball: The Seven Sapphires, Gish, Dune, Command & Conquer, Battlefield Vietnam, Battlefield 2, Conflict Vietnam, Vietcong, Men of Valor, Men of Honor: Pacific Assault, Far Cry 1 & 2, Line of Sight: Vietnam, ArmA II & 3, Roller Coaster Tycoon, Red Faction Guerrilla, Conan Exiles & when I'm in the mood for some fast paced game play I'll boot up one of my favourite racing games such as most of the Dirt franchise or the Flatout games including their latest offering Wreckfest (though it saddens me to see they are adopting the expensive DLC route). Other games I've recently got into and highly recommend are the single player/cooperative games Generation Zero, Second Extinction & TheHunter: Call of the Wild, {all from the same distributor Avalanche games of the Just Cause franchise fame), All 3 games are open world & have either survival or hunting elements included.

It's the first time in ages that I've been excited to play games on a daily basis that give me a buzz; and, they have replaced one of my all time favourite games The Elder Scrolls Online, which I've not booted up since Feb 2021.

This is a brilliant collection of 23 pinball tables sold in six separate packs (the Star Wars pack has 3, the rest four tables each). These are the most beautiful tables I've ever played. They almost feel like playing on a real table, the graphics are so good.

You can compare your high scores for each table with your friends, and the accumulated high scores for each table also place you on a separate score table.

Ball physics is as good as it gets. I do feel some of the tables lack the ability to play skill shots, they re more about lucky than anything, but other tables compensate for that.

If you like pinball games I recommend you don't wait till the sales and get them now. I thought at first the full cost was prohibitive, but when you consider you are getting 23 tables, it's actually a steal as each table works out at less than £1.40 each (approx $2)

Got loads more games to trade; just check my inventory. Everything apart from the Free to Play dlc packs are up for trade plus a few others that I've already earmarked for friends or family, but most games from page 1 to 11 are up for grabs so long as decent trade is offered. I've also got several thousand steam codes (including games that are no longer available via Steam) from indie bundles that I'd like to trade for cards only. I will eventually post a list of these, but you can always ask me if i have a particular game code. I will trade for other games that I don't have in my
library, but am not interested in backgrounds, drops from games like CS:Go etc; though I am interested in completing sets of trading cards, so are happy to swap cards.

Those games/dlc in my inventory that have been removed from Steam I'd rather trade for other games that have been removed that I don't own, but at a push I’d consider other options such as games I don't have, or TF2 keys, but those games are at a premium, so no discounts and more than likely a percentage multiplier on the cost of the game. I'm not looking to make a massive profit on those games as I don't like taking advantage of peoples wants, just a fair trade.

You can see a comprehensive list of removed games HERE . As you can see, some games are available online still from places like Amazon, but these sources will dry up as more game collectors buy them up.

Apart from the games/dlc's that have been removed that you can find in my inventory, I also have a Steam code for BRINK which has also been removed (not in my inventory) and there are a couple that were included in earlier bundles that are no longer on Steam that I’ve not listed these include keys for:

Your Doodles are Bugged!
Dirt x 2
Star Trek
Dark Souls™: Prepare To Die™ Edition
Ace Combat Assault Horizon - Enhanced Edition
Shattered Horizon (also got a copy in my inventory)

but haven't had much time spare to make a list of removed games from the spare codes I have. (I've been slowly working on a full list of game codes I have, but it's a tedious process as I have at least ten thousand spare codes. I gave away several hundred in one go some years ago, and have still to delete those from the list I've already made.

Sometime in the future (I don't know when, as i still have thousands of games to add to the document), I will be giving away some of them to friends.

P.M. me if you are interested in trading for any of the games in my inventory. I will also trade any card in my inventory. I've decided not to pursue Steam levels as I think it's a big valve rip off, but I'm still creating sets to get the discount coupons since they changed the drops to coupons for games that you don't own

p.s. I also have a uPlay key for Tom Clancy's EndWar™
