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.

I've been playing 毛塊 before bed, if you have a phone give it a try. They had this game for years on there then the thing disappeared from google play for a whole year. Now it's back up again.

I played through 4 free indie games today that you can get off Steam. I'd say all 4 had their merits. I'll list them below.

#1 - September 1999: Very short horror game that only lasts for about five minutes, but has good atmosphere and also no jumpscares to worry about. Has a found footage aesthetic. Neat little experience. Similar to another free game called The Static Speaks My Name, which I'd recommend checking out as well.

#2 - When the Darkness comes: Stanley Parable type game about anxiety and depression with a bit of a horror aspect to it that has a length of about 40-50 minutes, but can be replayed for different endings. Bit of an in-cely feel to it at times, but has some otherwise good/unsettling segments in it that actually feel relevant to being perpetually socially isolated and struggling with mental illness and thoughts of suicide. The developer speaks as the narrator and has a very thick (French?) accent and sounds like he's about 16 years old which can also be quite distracting/annoying, so fair warning on that. You also have the option to just hang yourself at the end, which I appreciated and is the only ending I chose, or cared to see.

#3 - Burning Daylight: LIMBO/Inside type sidescrolling adventure game set in a neon laden cyberpunk dystopia that lasts for about 30-40 minutes. Pretty high production values for a free game, which is commendable. You don't really do much except walk to the right and take in the scenery, but it does that sort of thing well enough and has good atmosphere to soak around in while taking note of the environmental story telling going on in the background. Reminded me a bit of that show 'Love, Death, and Robots', in the sense of it being almost like a playable segment similar to the likes of the stories you'd see showcased there. Would be interesting to see it become a full game someday, but it's a solid and complete experience as it stands.

#4 - Answer Knot: Short first person narrative that lasts about 25 minutes. Kind of annoyingly normalfag at first, since you play as a guy listening to your wife's phone messages that she periodically leaves you while stumbling around some house and interacting with items based on what she's talking about while inevitably seeing photos of their obnoxious normalfag life plastered everywhere, but the game picks up once the actual story/strange events start coming into play, which takes roughly about 5-10 miPost too long.

From the same developer is 30秒マン. If you're interested in shmups or any other kinds of games that involve dodging, this game is a nice way to practice that. Rather than having free movement or a jump or anything, you constantly hop back and forth between the ceiling and the floor while Metal Blades come from the sides. There's three stages and each stage lasts 30 seconds, although there isn't a scoring system or anything. Just last 30 seconds and you're done.

According to the in-game rankings, only 37 people have beaten the game on Hard. I might try to beat it, too. It would be cool to have tangible proof that I'm one of only ~50 people in the world to have beaten something.

There are a lot of hentai doujin games on the +18 section of DMM the vast majority of them are truly shit games but some of them are decent games that have +18 scenes slapped on them to sell.

Check out some games you may like and torrent them on nyaa sukebei.

What’s a shovelware/shitty licensed title that you like even though it’s bad? For me it’s probably Garfield’s Fun Fest for the DS. I have a lot of fun replaying it, and I like the Garfield health mechanic with you needing to find food to keep garfield alive as his health slowly ticks down.

Worms 3D on gamecube when it came out, I would not touch it now though. Maybe I'll have a look at some gameplay video out ot nostalgia but I'm afraid I will cringe at how bad it is and why it is that I have had fun with it back then…
I also liked Yoshi's Story on the N64 as a kid, some years later I found out that it was not as well received on the internet and that kinda surprised me. Again I have no intention of replaying it and ruining my memories.
Can't really think of anything else tbh. Even without the internet I seldom picked actual shovelware on the systems I owned, and mostly went for what looked interesting or I knew about from my siblings. Great idea for a thread nonetheless.

We're only a few days away now from the release.

If you're playing on the XB1 you can try changing your location setting to New Zealand to play early. Apparently this has worked in the past for some players of games like AC: Valhalla.

Throw out your consoles and downgrade to a laptop or rip out your gpu. Let laziness fight this battle for you.

Also get some other time consuming hobby, i like scale models for this reason.

Soul Knight is pretty good.
Isn't pay to win. It's pay to remove ads or pay to unlock special characters.

None of the guns/weapons are paywalled and IMO some of the best characters are unlockable for free. Like the ninja and wizard.

Mobile games will always suck. My only suggestion is to use emulators and play PSP and Gamecube games or something. That said, there are a few that are OK if you are into "rogue-like" or strategy games:
>Cataclysm DDA, It's an open source roguelike but it's complete autism. Don't play if you don't have cripplingly severe autism.
>Unciv, an open source strategy game that is a direct copy of Civilization V. When I say direct copy, I mean it's a feature complete and mostly bug free Civ V already, just without the expansions and 3D graphics.
>Mindustry, like Factorio but much simpler.
>UnNethack. It's nethack.

man I have been playing League o f legends, and I am horrified at some people that pay for ALL the skins.

even if I was rich, this is insane to me. I know I felt the urge to buy skins many times. but the poorfag within me thrives like a phoenix, and soon I feel too cheap to spend on this shit.


and I never regret not buying. I feel like I can quit this game whenever I want I won't have wasted my money.

I've also been sucked into the league machine. I only play like one champ though so I bought her skins, and I'm considering buying the chromas too. But I play her so much it doesn't feel like a waste. Though some skins cost like 100 dollars for one skin.

When I was a kid I always wanted to have a PS2,but my family was too poor to buy videogames.

Now I finally bought a PS2 fat,even when I have a PS3 and PS4 Pro for some circumstances I can't afford to buy games for those right now,so I bought a PS2, the guy on ebay said that it was in good condition and it should arrive in a couple of days.

It includes 2 dualshock controllers and most importantly a FMCB memory card,so I can pirate and create my own DVD's.

What are the best games I can play on it? And homebrews/hacks? The PS2 looks beareable on a HDTV?

Please don't suggest emulators like PCSX2,my PC is too slow for that,keep it PS2 only.

if you have a good pc, you can emulate the PS2 easily. My 2013 setup gets it done easily and I think Shadow of Colossus runs better on my pc then on the actual console

Every console post-Dreamcast is garbage and lack really great games that were plenty on PSX and Saturn (and on SFC, PC Engine and Famicom) and Dreamcast itself was shit (well, from programming viewpoint not exactly), it's default controller being a clear downgrade from Saturn 3D controller.

Only plethora of great Capcom and SNK fighters (and Shenmue, if you like that kind of game) make it worthwhile - with a stick.
