This is a thread for sharing free game deals you find on the Internet.
Not free games, but specifically promos or ways of getting legit keys of otherwise non-free games.

You can get Watch Dogs for free if you install Uplay (Ubisoft's platform), launch it and click on the banner advertisement.
It's unclear how long this promo will last.

The first big one being, how many games do you finish a year? This is the one I really want an answer to. Getting some answers/feedback to all the others provided below would also be appreciated.

How long is your backlog? Does it feel like a burden to you & do you chastise yourself for not clearing more games that you have on the back burner? Are you like me and is it an obsessive matter that you can't shake even if you want to? Do you find anhedonia makes finishing games or working through your backlog immensely difficult? Do you even bother with a backlog?

Do you feel as if time is running out, either with your current life situation, or with society at large, and you'll never get around to playing certain games you might really enjoy? Do you ever procrastinate playing these sorts of games, even if you know you'll probably enjoy them, merely because it feels like too much effort?

Do you still enjoy gaming? Do you bother to play a lot of different games, or do you just stick to a couple old reliables & don't bother with the rest? What about the classics? Have you played them all? Do you even want to play them all? If not, don't you feel like you're missing out? Is FOMO a concern when gaming for you? Is FOMO a concern in other forms of media, like films or anime or whatever else?

Do you ever have the need to prove yourself when gaming? Does a sense of pride or validation from straining yourself ever factor into how effectively you're able to enjoy yourself? Do you care about how well you do, even if it's in a non-competitive experience like a single player game? Are you like me and, at least in a subtle way, push yourself so you can meet your own standards and therefore feel better than other people because of how good you think you are?

Do you find your skills degrading as time goes on? Are there certain genres, or games, that you simply couldn't see yourself as playing anymore?

Did you ever waste a lot of time playing stuff you didn't enjoy? Do you still find yourself doing this? If so, do you feel as if that has partially hindered your ability to derive satisfaction from the past time? Do you feel anhedonia is inevitable? If so, do you feel as if anhedonia becomes a new normal & that it will forever hang over you like a dark rain cloud, even outside of gaming?

>Mind doing a top10 or 15 or 20 best games you've ever played?

I honestly don't think that I could. Any time anyone's every asked me this sort of thing, whether it be with movies/games/music, my mind always draws a blank. I can do the next best thing however and post a list I've been keeping since about April of 2017, in regards to all the games I've finished since then. Out of all of them, I could probably delineate it down further into the ones that I particularly liked or enjoyed the most, but I'm not sure what the point would be. Better to just see them all for yourself, I'd imagine. Again, this isn't accounting for all the games I finished prior to 2017, which itself would dwarf the list I currently have by quite a fair margin. Makes me wish I'd started keeping a record of some kind sooner, but it is what it is.

>Also do you use any playthroughs when finishing any of these games?

Never. My OCD wouldn't abide such measures, since I need to finish the game myself. Watching someone else would completely undermine that.

>Do you try to figure everything out by yourself first?

I do, but I'll sometimes, on the odd occasion, resort to checking a wiki, or doing a quick google search, if something just isn't clicking with me, or I'm confused to a frustratingly large degree. In regards to old-style adventure games, if I have to resort to looking up the answer to a puzzle, than I often times just drop it instead, mostly out of shame & disappointment with myself. Not to mention that continuing on just feel overwhelmingly pointless once one succumbs to such measures.

However, as I was trophy hunting, which itself was an obsession that began for me around the Summer of 2008 & ended permanently in & around December of 2014, I would often check guides on PS3T.org (a popular trophy hunting website), on what was the fastest/most efficient path to the platinum or 100%. I'd do this with basically each game I played, so as to maintain a high efficiency in the amount of games I could clear. It didn't interfere all that much with the enjoyment I was able to derive from what I was doing. Not until near the end of my tenure as a trophy hunter, that is. Funny though how my OCD has morphed into regarding whaPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


>Out of all of them, I could probably delineate it down further into the ones that I particularly liked or enjoyed the most, but I'm not sure what the point would be.

Such lists are helpful to the person making it because it helps you organize your thoughts about the several games you have experienced. Having a top list also helps with picking your next game to play since usually from such lists patterns arise and you notice a studio, genre or theme arising from your choices. Besides it's fun to do really, to reminisce on your past experiences. In your case it's actually interesting for other people as well, given the fact you finished many hundreds, perhaps thousands of games.



>Having a top list also helps with picking your next game to play since usually from such lists patterns arise and you notice a studio, genre or theme arising from your choices.

Perhaps that might be true for others, but I can't really say that's what would be the result for me. A personal "top games" list would, by & large, simply feel like a chore for me to comprise. I also can't say that there'd be much insight gained from the process either. In my case, there'd really be no point. Even if I did decide on a few games to fill it out with, it would only lead me to the same sorts of "classics" I have such a hard time with starting now. Again though, I'm also just lazy. Too much effort in the end, either way.

>Besides it's fun to do really, to reminisce on your past experiences.

Yeah, agreed. That's why I keep the sort of more "general games" list that I do now, the one being that I already posted. I prefer a more complete picture of my habits, instead of one that's simply cherry picked. It leads me to cringe sometimes, looking at some of the trash I've endured here & there, but, again, it gives a clearer continuity to my gaming related habits. Both for myself to pick over and even others, should they wish to take a gander at it.

Even with the benefits that lists or various other bits of information bring, it's still hard to gauge what one might like, or might not like. Having just finished Saya no Uta, I hadn't really thought I'd get much from it going in, being that it's simply a visual novel and all, but I actually quite enjoyed it. Does that mean I should check out more visual novels? Perhaps, perhaps not. In the end, the fact that I played it at all was simply a fluke. An ephemeral whim that simply came to me out of the blue. The sort of thing that's totally unsummonable under any other circumstance. That right there is my real problem and it's an utterly intractable predicament. It's like I'm sitting here in a boat without the wind necessary to send it moving in the direction I want. As a result, I simply have to wait for another fluke of some sort. A unique sort of fluke to send me playing a game I know that I should play and that I'll probably enjoy. As was, again, the case with Saya no Uta, whose installer had sat on my computer for quite sPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


I play online games vs randoms sometimes to just get a reaction.


>how many games do you finish a year?
none. can't get into them. might replay an old game for a few mins or days at most just to remind myself of something.

>How long is your backlog?

Don't have one anymore. Watched everything I want to death. Now into surfing/ pathfinding as some kind of shinto ritual thing. Have to make it my own thing. Rather, impossible to avoid.

>Do you feel as if time is running out

Only felt this when I was young, likely from parental/ society pressure. It's something most serious people realize is false.

>Do you still enjoy gaming?

Not really. They aren't on the same wavelength and heavily restricting.

>Do you ever have the need to prove yourself when gaming?

This never came up even as a kid. I just pursued whatever was fun. Eventually got fixated on 'hard' content and ran out. Only thing left is arbitrary 'sports' ways of playing in team games or speed running. It's a viable thing to pursue but I have better things going on.

>Do you find your skills degrading as time goes on?

Reaction times/ memory recall/ strategical thinking. Stuff I don't care about.

>Did you ever waste a lot of time playing stuff you didn't enjoy?

Not in the past. Sometimes now when looking around for the next thing. The anhedonia dissipates as I get closer to what I should be doing, which is rarely games.

Fair enough, wiz. It's good to know what other people think about the games I'm posting about, even if they weren't particularly compelling for you. I'll admit though that I have sorta felt like I'm just flooding the thread with games that nobody really cares for, or are just generally disinterested in. If so, I apologize. I'm trying my best here. I've played a lot of random indie games over the years & getting the chance to post about some of them, while imparting a few random thoughts as to what I personally thought about their overall quality, is appreciated & has at least given me something to do for the time being. I'd like to think I might be able to suggest some stuff that other wizzies could enjoy, which is part of what motivates my spam posting. I have no one to speak about these sorts of things with & being able to discuss this sort of thing, gives a conceited sense of potential value to all the time I've spent playing random, what some might very well be correct in considering to be, schlock, since now, beyond simply being a waste of time in the moment, I can share it with others, since maybe they'll like it too. Again, I don't mean to be a bother.


I'm enjoying the thread. Now all the games appeal to me but I'm interested to see games being mentioned which I wouldn't other wise touch. Like when you browse a game store IRL

cosmoteer is a pretty neat game. it's free, although it's still being developed and only for windows, but there's still plenty of fun to be had. you build spaceships from individual parts and fight increasingly more difficult opponents.


Hey, I wasn't meaning to be overly critical. Just giving my opinion. I actually really appreciate that you are spreading the word about these lesser-known games. It's not spam posting at all. Keep it up!

This are my favourite kinds of games. Really cheaply made games, often free or very cheap, that you can tell were made for love not profit. The kind of things you see for free on sites like Itch.io, the fanwork games sold at Reitaisai or Comiket, the silly, cheap mods of larger games like TF2's mario_kart or trade_plaza, the gaming world's equivalent of the music world's "lo-fi", essentially. While I'll enjoy AAA games and big budget releases, cheap and obscure games will always be my favourites.

Does anyone else feel like this?

Please refrain from political shitposting about Gamergate esque indie dev drama, that's not what this is for.

Try it on a windows 7 virtual machine.



I think I'd rather just try changing the system locale, being that I have no idea how to set up a virtual machine and it seems like even more work for something which, like I said already, should just be as easy as click it & play it. At this point, I guess I'll just forget about it for the time being. Just too much of a hassle. Maybe someone will sort it out to work better with modern systems in the future, but I doubt it.


Setting up a virtual machine is fairly easy and will solve this kind of problems for most games though.
Virtual box, an iso and installing the host additions is all you need to get it working.

It's incredible how, not too long ago (5, 10 years ago?), I had a real disdain for indie games. That was when they were really first coming to prominence, and they were the realm of insufferable hipsters spurning out garbage "games" with 2deep4u plots & art direction. Nowadays, those types are mostly gone & forgotten, and indie games are the only sort of game that give me any enjoyment anymore. Great enjoyment at that. Most AAA games are far too rote and boring for me nowadays, with most of them focusing on flash and cinematics at the expense of gameplay, but when you find that one indie title with so much love and fun poured into it, it's like playing a game as a kid again.


This, I hate it when people on here say 'uh hur dur 2hu is too normie bro', its a really fucking good series, and normalfags don't know anything outside of the mainstream games, and the literal 10 year old shitpost/memes surrounding the first 10 games.

People has been meme'ing persona for years but I never had any interest because I don't play JRPG/RPG but I got myself a backwards compatible PS3 and now I can play Persona 3/4/5 on a single machine and I think I will give the series a chance.

I also have a hacked PS vita so I can play P4G and the weird dancing games if they're really worth pirating.

What's your opinion about this series? What game should I play first? and any tips for someone who has barely played any JRPG's before?

Fuck this mouse.
Anyway, especially if you aren't that interested in Jrpgs.


Persona fucked up the SMT franchise. Now it's just a dating sim with bad turn based combat. Destroyed everything unique about the series and left junk behind for hipsters.


fuck anime


awful mind numbing gameplay. less depth in boss fights than pokemon.
annoying and pointless time restrictions will either force you to use guides or miss out on heaps of content.
characters are insulting stereotypes and flander-types (characters that have only one trait and one trait only that is exaggerated and run into the ground. "I LIKE KUNG FU LOL XD". "I LIKE SOCCER." "I'M A CLUMSY crab." "THIS ONE THING IS MY ENTIRE LIFE.") only a retard could find ANY of the characters compelling.
even the hardcore fans don't deny the main plot is poorly written, and play for "other reasons" (not sure what, everything else is shit too)


Persona 5 has the best music out of all of them.

I second steam's proton.

Im so lazy I could never be bothered to learn how Wine works but with steam proton I just right-click menu the games name in my steam library and check the check box to enable proton compatibility and it works.

It doesnt work 100% with all games but I imagine it eventually will as it is constantly updated. Id rather deal with a few non working games or bugs than use spyware windows 10


proton is beautiful when it works. i just tried out the ace attorney trilogy and it runs great, no tweaks required. it's such a nice experience to just install and play a windows game as if it was native linux. i've heard you can even play witcher 3 on it, that's amazing.


Looks like the proton shills have arrived.


after a fair amount of work, i've managed to get skyrim se working under proton, with probably somewhere around 100 mods running (including skse). it seems like if you're willing to put in the time, you can craft an experience that's practically identical to playing on windows. i chose to install the mods manually, but it seems like getting the vortex mod manager running properly would be possible too. mod organizer 2 seems like it might not be supported as well atm.

anyway, it's all nice and set up now, i have desktop shortcuts to run loot and wrye bash under my skyrim prefix, the "play" button on steam launches skse, and i *think* i successfully solved the audio issues that i was having initially. more testing needed of course but right now it all just seems…perfect. the performance is great too, and i'm using plenty of hd textures and scripts and such.

well, there is one annoyance - the game likes to crash when i tab out.

i hope to get no man's sky set up next, i had it working in the past and i expect it to be really easy. i have the gog version, so i'll run it in lutris with their custom wine/proton hybrid thing - but, i'm waiting for the next patch or two, because i've read it's in a bit of an unstable spot after the "beyond" update. i do hope it gets a native port eventually.

Bought this game at 2012 or something around that time. Honestly I got disappointed by the lack of depth with this game but it was still really exciting and fun for a long time until I got bored.

But I had found the best part of Spore recently which is the creature creator. Post your own creations if you wish.

What I've tried:

League of Legends - love the champion variety and strategy. The gameplay is mostly slow, however, at the end of the match it's always 5 on 5 gangbang that starts and ends faster then I can even comprehend what the hell has just happened

Fistful of Frags - online FPS with very slow gameplay. Almost perfect for me, but needs more content IMO

Path of Exile - addictive at first, but after some time all that loot grinding gets tedious

Hearthstone - too slow (well, it's a card game)

Does RS worth trying if i'm poor af?



first time I hear someone talk about Project reality!

is such an obscure, core gamer thing. I love to sit still for minutes just having that deep sense of war is not shooting all the time


If you want to try it a ton of content is free. It is the reason it is the mmo of choice for broke ass kids as their first mmo. Relatively low system requirements, don't need to install huge program files or use a launcher, and free to play with loads of fun to be had without spending a dime.

There isn't much to loose but time in trying it. If after a few months you find you like it enough to spend money then they have those cards you can buy to use even if you don't have a debit or credit card.

That said I have played almost a decade so I don't know how much gas changed.

Close Combat


yeah, actually you're right. I'd have loved Ion Fury but the man character is female so, it's a no from me



> character is female so, it's a no from me

Does it really matter? Nevertheless, it runs on the Eduke32 engine, and mods will surface sooner or later. If you are lucky there might be a male-player-character mod in the future.


It doesn't really idk, I just don't like it when it's a succubus who goes guns blazing, funny enough I played Mirror's Edge and I really liked it, finished it twice but as i said
As for the mods hopefully, but I'm not really sure about the male main character thing because of the voice acting stuff.
