After spending money on necessary things, I found myself left with $15 and couldn't think of what to spend it on.  Does anyone know of any good games for around that price?  I don't have a single cent more than that so preferably nothing over that amount.  I play just about anything out there, so feel free to suggest any genre. 
Also, I have most of the great Xbox Live Arcade games, including the more recent ones.

Have you played Machinarium? They recently dropped the price to $10.

Or Shatter? That's also only $10. I highly recommend both games.

You really need to tell us what kind of thing you're looking for, because honestly, there are a lot of great games under $15...

And don't say "anything" :(

You can get a new copy of Brutal Legend for $7 with free shipping at Newegg. I think most of the bad rap that game got was due to people thinking it was a different kind of game. I loved it and I know many others who did as well.
There's a bunch of good used games at Gamefly right now for $15 or less with free shipping. Alan Wake, Bulletstorm, Enslaved, Dead Rising 2, and some others that I see just by glancing through. They had New Vegas for $10, but it looks like they ran out. I picked it up for $10 new at Best Buy a couple of months ago and it's been getting discounts all over so if you look around you might be able to find it for $15 or less.
If you have Red Dead Redemption but not Undead Nightmare you should pick that up. It's on sale for $5 right now from the Xbox Live Marketplace. You'll get a solid 6+ hours out of that.

@wemibelec90: I would really reccomend Dungeons of Dredmor. Amazing indie Roguelike on steam!

http://store.steampowered.com/app/15130/ <-- Beyond Good and Evil, $10

http://store.steampowered.com/app/6000/ <-- Republic Commando, (Currently) $5

http://store.steampowered.com/app/6310/ <-- The Longest Journey, $10

http://store.steampowered.com/app/50620/ <-- Darksiders, $5

http://store.steampowered.com/app/32370/ <-- Knights of hte old republic, $5

In fact, best value would probably be KOTOR+Darksiders+Republic Commando. They all have different flavors of game, but all have quality.

BG&E holds a special place in my heart, and I hope the sequel gets made. It's worth checking out. The Longest Journey is crazy, and fantastic.

These are just some of the ones that popped up when I did a quick search.

Find free indie games. Most all of the gaming I do lately is free.

Shadow Complex just in case you didn't have it already on xbl.

I can sell you my copy of Sneak King for 15$ its still in its original raping.

Renegade Ops. Brad gave it a glowing review, the quicklook was entertaining, and almost all reaction has been positive.

@wemibelec90: Someone linked the Steam under $10 and the first thing I saw was Limbo.... for god sakes if you haven't played it, do it man

#15 Posted by thisguyrich (86 posts) -

#16 Posted by bybeach (5053 posts) -

Portal 1 is free? There has been so many excellent suggestions, but wow! My choice though of course is Elusionar's Sneak King..I couldn't stop laughing!

@louiedog: Thanks for recommending Gamefly. I got Killzone 3 and Bulletstorm for a lot cheaper than I would have elsewhere. I don't really really want the games, but there are no rental places around here that have 'em and this is cheap enough to justify as a 'trial' purchase. :)

If you’re going to try to sell that 15$, at lease take out the giant 2$ price tag. My side hurts from laughing so hard.

Raping sounds about right for a game like Sneak King.

If you like the older stuff, Good Old Games' stuff is either $6 or $10, and they have some of the best PC games from the 90s if you're into that.

Magicka is $2.50 on steam today Sunday, Sept. 18 ($10 regular price). You play as a mage and cast spells by combining up to 8 different elements.

Also, Dungeons of Dredmor is $5 on steam (regular price). It's a rogue-like that doesn't take itself too seriously.

I've played quite a bit of both games and they're some of the most fun I've had with smaller games released this year.

So what platforms you playin on? Cuz I can get you a copy of Super Mario 3 NES for 5 bucks. Otherwise, you know, more info and all to better help us help you.

@ArbitraryWater: Yup, you can pick up all the Tex Murphy games for $15 this weekend with the 50% off deal.

#26 Posted by Tea_bird (22 posts) -

I'm not sure what platform you're wanting to play on, but Steam is the place to look for good deals. Right now they have Knights of the Old Republic for $5. Time hasn't been particularly nice to it, but it's still a great game you should experience if you haven't.

Whispered World is the Daily Deal on Steam; if you like adventure games and can tolerate an adult male voice actor playing a child, then the game is great.
