Overlord - Triumph Studios - PC

It's like Pikmin, but better.  No annoying time limits, and instead of faceless plant dudes you're controlling funny gobliny things.  It's sort of RPG-ish in that there's a story line with quests, and upgrades for your character as well as for your mob of minions.  Combat is fun -- most of the time you just point at the thing you want dead, you click, and your horde of goblins goes to jump on it and beat it with clubs.  If the things they killed drop weapons or armor, they automatically take them and equip them to increase their own stats, and if there's treasure, the goblins automatically bring it back to you with a gleeful cry of "for Master!"  It's very satisfying and very low on micromanagement.

I discovered this game via the free demo in the Steam store a while back.  Initially held off on buying it at$40, but when it hit $10 this past weekend I couldn't say no.  Now that I've gotten to play more of it, I wish I'd bought it earlier at $40 so I'd have more time for L4D now.

Buy it.
