In a sea of brown-grey military war shooters last gen came Spec Ops: The Line, another brown-grey military shooter that actually turned out to be a subversion of other similar games, and became one of the best written games on the market, and a shockingly nuanced commentary on the state of war.
It was an interesting game (even though the playing part of it was at best average) thanks to its storytelling capabilities—and if you haven’t had the chance to check it out yet, you can now! The PC version of the game is available for the grand price of absolutely nothing right now, thanks to the Humble Bundle (and will be for the next day and a half). The best part? This includes Mac and Linux too!
If you don’t have a PC, Mac, or Linux machine, well, you have other problems, but for the purposes of this article, Spec Ops: The Line is also available on Xbox 360 and PS3.
