    That "Seven" games goes on sale every other week it feels like. In theory it should be up my alley... stealth and RPG mixed together in sci-fi world... but something about it just turns me off in gameplay videos.

    Bannar Saga Trilogy is good. The only other one I've played on the list is AOD, and it pisses all over that from a great height.

    Quick question: do you actually play any of these games you ask about, or do you just enjoy the act of hoarding them?

    unless you have a hankering for rotoscoped good visual and audio effects but bad to okay at best everything else, I wouldn't bother. And even if you did there's better offerings

    Also going on the information that you want something that can last a long-ass time.

    Banner Saga trilogy's alright, has some C&C and some decent combat, but I don't know if you'd really want to play it more than maybe twice unless it really clicks with you for some reason. Not ridiculously replayable by itself.
    Darkest Dungeon would be in the running for longest lasting/most replayable because setting up weird and functional party compositions is kinda neat, butt it's also grindy as all holy hell. Depends on how much grind you can stomach in games, since while it's long lasting a whole bunch of it is going through the same general motions.
    Age of Decadence + Dungeon Rats, AoD's quite replayable (Lots of hidden/unnecessary quests and locations and shit, seeing the story from different perspective, tons of C&C) but you will eventually run out of juice on it since it's primarily a story experience. Dungeon Rats has very little story, but I dunno if I'd say it's all that great for replaying to try different combat builds, either. It's definitely good for a run or two but it's a pretty short dungeon crawl. AoD's my favorite of the bunch but if you're specifically looking for something that'll last you a long while it may not do. Also you can get AoD and Dungeon Rats both (With other games) for $4 over here provided you can live with Steam keys, so if you can grab those in addition to something from the GoG sale that'd be good.
    The Sunless games are long lasting too, but they're long lasting both for grind (Slowly accruing shekels and resources) and because the travel time in both games is horrendously slow. It helps set the mood of the games, but it relies on your personal tolerance for staring at a screen with nothing happening and just listening to your engine thrum. That said, they do have a pretty good pile of content, and if you end up digging the setting then they're really nice experiences. I'd also say they're marginally less grindy than Darkest Dungeon simply because the grind in the Sunless games is spaced between long stretches of doing absolutely nothing at all.

    So TLDR summary is Darkest Dungeon and Sunless games are best for total hours, AoD+DR is best for replayable due to story and writing, and Banner Saga's last place but not really a bad option either.

    Star Wars sale: https://www.gog.com/news/star_wars_...b?pp=cb4e5208b4cd87268b208e49452ed6e89a68e0b8

    Weirdly there's a couple of characters from the new trilogy on the promotional image (either go to the sale page itself or bring up the GOG home page), despite the latest game on sale being 2011's Lego Star Wars III - The Clone Wars. Under different circumstances I might've taken this as some kind of sign that modern Star Wars games are coming to the store.

    Exactly, disembodied voice in my head.

    The first Battlefront was all multiplayer right? IIRC only the sequels had a campaign?

    Usually development (writing code for new features) get registered by accounting as R&D, since it can allow to get some grants/tax rebates; the company where I did my first internship did this, they were getting a few % of development costs back as tax rebates

    Dex, Underrail, AoD, Hollow Knight, and Hotline Miami 2 are solid picks but had to prosper you for the Her Story.
