The Witcher 1 is awful though. The Witcher 2 is awesome if you can forgive the horrible combat.
Total War: Warhammer is an amazing game I'm super into right now but it is the opposite of cheap. Around 150 Reais on steam.
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is a nice fantasy single-player RPG. I'm not sure how much it costs but the company that made it went bankrupt so...
Kingdoms and Kingdoms: New Lands are both cheap and great games too.
Nosgoth is a free game where you can play as Vampire and Vampire Hunters fighting one another. Last time I played, it was plenty of fun. I had to stop playing because they upped the graphics a bit and my game started to stutter.
WARFRAME is a free, futuristic shooter / slasher game that looks amazing and runs very smoothly. The midgame gets rather grindy but the gameplay is so much fun that some people don't mind. It is an online game but you can play everything as a single-player game and won't have any problems.
Long Live the Queen is a small game, kinda cheap (only around 10 dollars when I last checked) and fun. Long story short, you play as a Princess in a semi-visual novel game who will become the queen in about 10 Days or so. Your goal in the game? Survive to that point because LOADS of people want to kill you.
You also have skills that you can use that can help you survive, you can change Elodie's mood to help those skills grow.
I know what I'm talking about sounds really frilly but Draggy, Kara and I liked it.
Yes Draggy and Kara, I am dragging you both into this.
Don't forget Jad. He played it too. And Elodie will become queen over the course of weeks, not days.
But yes, the game was fun. I was skeptical about the pink anime princess thing at first, but it wasn't really an issue once I got into the game. At first I was trying just to survive. Then once I managed that, I wanted to find all possible deaths. And then I played to see all possible outcomes. My favourite was the playthrough in which I had Elodie blow the invaders up with magic, sacrifice her cousin to pacify the kraken, and blast rioting peasants with fireballs. She then went on to have a long and prosperous tyrannical reign.
The game isn't perfect because most of the problems you face are sort of arbitrary and having the right skills to deal with them requires either luck or having foreknowledge from a failed previous run.
Also, Total Biscuit got roped into playing this by his wife.
