Need help deciding on a gift.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a friend whose birthday is coming up. They recently joined Steam and only have one game, so I thought I would be one for them =) Well, this friend is girl and she likes horror games, but she plays on a laptop; a pretty decent laptop with a Core i5 and a GTX560M. I was looking on Steam and found 2 that seems great. But I don't play on a laptop so I don't know if she plans on using a USB mouse or not. The games are Lucius and Anna. I have also considered I Am Alive (I know it's not horror but it seems to be her type) and Alan Wake. I don't know how difficult it will be to play any of these on a laptop but if there are any games similar to these that are somewhat easy to play on a laptop and are on Steam, please let me know. Thank you kindly.

If she likes stories, Amnesia is good. It can run on pretty much any system.

There's also Slender, which is a cool concept.

Also, if she is into FPS games, Left for Dead 1/2 are good choices. Lots of replay-ability.

Ah yes Amnesia and Left 4 Dead. Hmm..I think she would enjoy Amnesia a little more.
Would you consider that easy to play on a laptop? I can't really try because my laptop can barely run Mafia on the highest settings .__.
