June: Bundle appreciation month

The phrase “Bundle games” seems to often have a negative connotation, but luckily not all bundle games are games not worth playing - some real gems have also been available as part of a bundle and therefore accessible to a wider audience. Let’s appreciate bundle games this month!

You can use the Steamgifts list of bundle games as a list of games that qualify. Bonus points if you also check the bundle status somewhere else (like isthereanydeal.com), since SG also lists games with high discounts as bundle games. :)
(Btw, does anyone know where we could find a reliable list of bundled games?)

To participate, reply to this post and tell us which games that fit the monthly theme you’re going to play. It’s best if you include games you got as part of a bundle, but they also qualify if you got them before/after they were bundled.
Please use the following (or similar) format to make it easier for me to keep the list of participants up to date, but feel free to add any extra thoughts about the game(s) to your post!

name of game 1 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished
name of game 2 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished
name of game 3 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished
total: | achievements obtained | playtime this month | Number of games finished

Have fun!

FAQ

Do I have to participate in this month’s theme?
No, as with every theme, these are merely suggestions for anyone who is unsure about what to play next. If you already have a battle plan for your backlog and/or don’t like this month’s theme, you’re free to ignore it.

What happens if I don’t participate in the monthly theme?
Nothing.

What happens if I play all of my unfinished games this month?
Your backlog will be a much smaller place.

I don’t have any unfinished games-I’ve beaten everything I’ve started.
Really? well that makes one of us… I salute you.

I already finished my entry can I play another?
Go ahead - the goal is to reduce your unfinished games list. The more you can play the better.

I’ve nearly beaten a game can I still use it as my entry?
Of course!

I’ve already beaten a game can I go back and play it again to use it in my entry?
Ideally the game you pick should be something unfinished.

Another great theme idea, looking forward to tackle some bundled games along with my main gaming target this month!

I know that barter has list of bundles but I’m not sure if you can search for specific games there . Probably best way is to check sg list and compare with itad. Probably will be more active than with the previous theme.

kubikill

It is possible to search for specific games - there’s a search field on the top of the page. Just type the game name and scroll down to the “Included In Bundles” area.

Wow! That’s almost my entire library!

As for a bundled game list, maybe https://barter.vg/browse/? (set filter by collection to ‘no filter’ if logged in, clear review % by setting it to ‘[review %]’, set bundle count to ‘bundled’) This pulls 9746(!) games. I did a quick check and this doesn’t appear to include false positives like giveaways or DIG or Russian sites.

Not going to participate because I’m too busy playing Pillars of Eternity; good luck to everyone who will participate! :)

Lucky Thirteen

Well, Spiral Knights is a free to play game ;)
But huh, would have thought Ass Creed was definitelly bundled at some point, that’s a surprise O.o

Fnord

Some Assassins Creed games have been bundled, but they’ve only offered Uplay keys.

Heh, I have already beaten one without even knowing.

Well this should be easy… I think most of my games are bundled, even if I didn’t get them when they were bundled. I’ll go through my games list and decide which ones I’ll try and play this month.
