Let's set value aside and look at why it's just not a good Humble Monthly bundle:

 

1. I own the headliner. Automatic disqualification for "good status" -- indisputable.

2. Headliner is from 2016. For context: (other games released in 2016 include Titanfall 2, Overwatch, XCOM 2)

3. It's already been in a Humble Monthly (with two add-ons) ... over three years ago.

4. Two problematic multiplayer games

5. A visual novel (YMMV)

6. Some pixel graphics games

7. A GOG ONLY GAME (this probably deserves to be higher)

 

If you look at it as a Civ bundle, that means you're a Civ fan and you're excited to get more DLC for cheap, The other stuff is gravy on top.

 

As a Humble Monthly though? It's really disappointing. There are so many things not to like about it and only a few ok-looking games to make up for it. For $12... hell no. I passed on it for $8. But I'm not a huge Civ fan and I played it enough a few years ago.

Other than Civ 6 this is basically a Fanatical-tier bundle.

I dunno... I actually bought a Fanatical bundle this month.
