I'm sure lots of people are in the same boat as me, feeling in the mood to play through a single player game, but not knowing what to choose because there are so many choices, don't own any consoles, etc.

So I wanted to create a thread / list where people can post games are meet the following criteria:
1. single-player
2. are beatable with a story (no pure puzzle games, etc.)
3. are available on pc (including emulation)

I've always found it quite bizarre how drawn I am to play complete trash, over games that I know I'd probably enjoy & find a great deal of effective, long-term escapism in. As some examples, instead of diving into something like Homeworld Remastered, or Arcanum, or Vampire The Masquerade, or The Witcher 2/3, or Skyrim, or Fallout New Vegas, or the hundreds of available ROMs & ISOs of classic games, all of which I've never played before, I instead, mostly play short, mechanically repetitive, indie trash. Crap like ECHO, or AER: Memories of Old, or Downward, or Styx: Shards of Darkness, and it just drives me crazy. Why do I waste my life playing games that are far inferior to other, better games that I've never played before? It boggles my mind. It's like having a gourmet meal in front of you and choosing to eat from whatever's in the shit encrusted trash can out in the piss covered alleyway instead. If I had to give an answer as to why, I'd say laziness. On some level it makes perfect sense, given my overwhelmingly lazy sensibilities, to play short, inoffensive garbage that I can finish from anywhere to 1 to 10 hours, as opposed to long sweeping games that require many times that amount to get through. It's easier, in a bizarrely masochistic sense, to play a short shitty game, than a long good game. It just feels like too much effort to sit down and play a game that I know is considered a classic and is something I'll probably like. It's almost like the expectation it will be good wears me out on an emotional level and playing something more mediocre & dismissable instead seems far easier & more doable. I have to be in a very unique mood to play a good game, otherwise I just seem to stick to the same sort of bland porridge overflowing on Steam and elsewhere that I've listed above. Anyway, I don't know. I just wish I wasn't like this. I have such copious amounts of time to devote to gaming and the way I waste, piss & squander it away like this, never fails to bother me.

I still haven't even finished Stalker: SoC with the OGSE mod, despite enjoying it quite a bit. Granted I got a bit too bogged down with the side quests (never made it the Red Forest, for instance), and the constant running back between zones got pretty tedious (even with the addition of vehicles, despite how impractical they are given the terrain & enemy spawns). Instead I play shit like Attack of the Earthlings, or Solstice Chronicles MIA, or Tartarus, or soPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Similar thing happens to me. I believe is a problem of commitment.
I'm a really lazy person and when I think I have to spend maybe dozens of hours in a game just to start playing decently or get decent equipment I lose all interest and opt for something short like a platformer or linear action game, that's why I can't play RPGs anymore, or most open world games.
I'm lazy even for video games, what a piece of human trash.

>Because being in a worse (or even average) mood while playing might prevent me from getting as much out of it, or something like that.


Yeah. I've also found that the stress of feeling like I have to play, and or finish, a certain game, or series of games, can sometimes get in the way of just enjoying whatever it is that I'm playing and not giving a shit about anything else. A part of me seems to be fervently concerned with the fact that I'm only going to be alive for so long, so, ideally, I should try as hard as I can to play, and finish if possible, every game that's worth playing out there before I finally lose the opportunity to do so. Whether if that's because the world ends, or my parents die, or even I myself die. That whole "gotta play'em all" mentality is admittedly quite foolish since the stress of feeling like it's an obligation only gets in the way of accomplishing the objective itself. Not to mention that, in the end, none of it really matters anyway. The distraction from reality is all that matters, if anything.

>when I know there's so many games out there I'd love, if I only put the effort into trying them.


And then there's this. New Vegas really is the perfect example of a game I want to play for no other reason than to just play and enjoy it, but I'm too hopelessly lazy to just click a few buttons and make it happen. And that's quite a predicament, really.

Same thing with the Zelda series. Only ever played and finished Windwaker back when it first came out, but I'm too much of a damn sloth to emulate/finish any of the others. Majora's Mask being the one I'd be most interested in playing, as useless as it is to mention.

>>44047

Yes, that's a fair thing to remark on, I suppose. It's just that I find that for every Deus Ex, Shadow Warrior or System Shock I manage to play there's about 10 Viking Squad, or Tokyo 42 like indie games that soak up needless time energy that could be better spent playing something like, as I mentioned previously, Homeworld or Vampire The Masquerade. It just bothers me why I do that even though granted, I've still managed to play a fair number of classic games regardless, mostly those in the shooter genre. VePost too long.

God damn it I hate my family. Finally I am feeling in the mood to play Baldur's Gate, which I've been wanting to try for a long time. I'm just getting into it, feeling good, then boom. They fucking come down and start making a shit ton of noise, shouting and banging on shit, stomping everywhere. They're gone now but my motivation to play is ruined. And I'm just fucking angry. I can still fucking hear them up there. I wish they could all just shut up for a single fucking day. Is it so hard to leave me in peace? This is why I can never enjoy myself, every fucking thing I try is ruined by other people and their shitty stinky noisy bullshit.

Are there fellow wizards out there who feel like this ?
Basically, I am a gamer . I mostly like JRPG's but there are also a lot of other genres that I take. When it comes to competitive gaming, I really am filled with determination to be better than all normalfags , especially those with a relationship with succubi . Whenever I see normals and those coupleshits, I automatically feel rage, rage to crush them in whatever game it is and I will train and train again to defeat them and carry the flag of the wizards, that they can never reach our skills, that our kind is out of their league . Right now, I saw a lot of normals on this game called Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune, it's a racing game and I saw a lot of normals in there and almost all of them have succubi, sometimes even playing with them . I can't wait to humiliate them all, their joy is my fuel, I'm going to take the crown from them away. I will show them what wizards are capable of when it comes to games . We should all make it our oath to be the best gamers ever in every genre imaginable, we are the elite of the games . They can never reach us because they never knew what we went through to achieve such greatness .

I play Blops 2 and 3, and while usually not too spectacular at either, I occasionally go on a run where everyone and everything becomes my bitch, dropping 30 or 40 kills and having bitches screaming MODDER at me. It fills my heart with joy. Usually just play RPGs or old PS2 games, but on occasion I'll get drunk and drop the thunder on these brodude normie fags that screech like children when they get blown out.

It's not a "reddit term" but it is pretty misused, and a lot of people would be better off using "overlooked" than "underrated." In Earthbound's case, I'd say it was overlooked before Youtube came along and every retro gaming channel and their dog talked about how great it was.

To find a decent Android game you have to wade through a sea of shit that is Play Store. So share lesser known Android games that you liked. I got:
Battleheart Legacy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFZYCumpvCA
An older single player RPG. Great combat and controls, interesting abilities and character builds, beautiful art, runs well on anything, too. The story is a bit short, but there is some endgame in the form of endless wave arena mode where you can get the best gear and try to set records.
League of Berserk - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGtrK7BS8bc
A real time multiplayer dueling game where you basically click on abilities and potions and level your guy. Very repetitive, I found it fun until I hit later levels (25ish?), then it gets extremely grindy. Surprisingly alright community (chat), quite a few players online, though in most duels you fight against bots that use real player profiles. Somewhat p2w but if you spend a lot of time playing it matters less.
Day R - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXf4zbih0Ps
Top-down survival..RPG?. A little similar to Fallout1/2 but more simplistic. You travel from town to town and gather resources, craft items and try not to die. There is an online mode where apparently you can trade and complete quests with other players. Quite repetitive and difficult, I found only the early game fun. No paid items except the insignificant starter premium pack for few dollars.
CSR2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9aYphit-JA
Online drag racing with ridiculously good and smooth graphics and lots of real car models. Beware - it's a heavily pay to win game. The only reason I mention it because you can get a modded .apk with unlimited stuff (that was some Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

I like this one game called Cell Lab. You design tiny multicellular organisms, like how each individual cell divides and into what type of cell. Its pretty complex, but its fun to just make 2-3 cell creatures and try and optimize them. There is a over-time evolution mode to it that's kind of interesting. New creatures will develop some times depending on the conditions of the environment.

Runic rampage - just mindless, but fun hack and slash, graphics were clearly inspired by Warcraft 3
Wayward Souls - I only played a little, but quality is way above most mobile games. It's a rougelike action rpg with story.
Both games are also on PC and that's usually a sign of questions.

Danmaku reward you with different attacks and a brilliant sense of accomplishment. Some of the most satisfying games I've ever played were these kind of STGs.
They're not hard to find and there's plenty of lists on which are the greatest. I guess I would recommend Mushihimesama for being an accessible entry to the CAVE style of games.

Anyone playing this game?

It has a weird character style, but there's customization and no pay 2 win and almost all content very much for free(for now at least). Or at least that's what I'm reading around.

It's not my style but I was thinking of giving it a try. Anyone playing, is it any good? Would you recommend it?

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?

Good in the beginning but it really drags on, took me around 80 hours to beat. It doesn't help that the main dungeon you're progressing through for the entire game is bland and barely changes from beginning to end outside of the enemies you see.

Also if you're playing the PS2 version you can't control your teammates, you can only set battle strategies for them. I didn't mind it too much but a lot of people were annoyed by it. The PSP version fixes it and adds some other stuff like the option for a female protagonist so maybe try that one if you want to have control over teammates.

I liked the overall atmosphere more than 4 and some of the social links were really cool, but honestly I don't think I'd ever replay it.

>4

Better than 3 in terms of gameplay since you actually go through different dungeons and have control over party members. Also dragged on much less, as the original took me about 45 hours (the vita version is probably a little longer since they added content, I think). Not really an amazing game or anything but I really enjoyed it.


I haven't played the others yet. I like the series, but I think most of its popularity in the West is just due to the novelty of the combination of school/dating sim elements with a JRPG, not because they're amazing games or anything.


>and any tips for someone who has barely played any JRPG's before?

My dad got me a Playstation and I was gifted an interesting game with smokey, aesthetic and obscure cover. I always loved the obscure, photographic covers over the colourful cartoony ones. It seemed more mysterious that way. The game was Silent Hill.

So the menu screen looked gloomy, but quite primitive, ok, let's play.

A nice intro, wow, some amazing 10/10 music. I replayed that intro many times just to listen to music. A man losing his daughter? Wow, what an interesting story, nothing infantile about superheros saving the world.

A man lost in snow, looking for his daughter. Fog everywhere. At that time it seemed like the most beautiful game. I know now the fog was to save processing power, but at that time it seemed the most mysterious and interesting thing. Due to the fog the world seemed so huge as I felt I could go anywhere, but the game sneakily led me down that alleyway path. I felt so at peace playing, beautiful snow, nice town, no living beings in sight.

"Wow, I have found my perfect game", I naively thought.

But then it all changed. The creepy wheelchair, the sudden darkness, the body, the sudden attack of those little monsters, feeling of helplessness…that was first part that made my heart race.

But at moment when it seems like you lost, you wake up in the bar.

"Phew, another soul" I thought…and then you got the gun and got to explore the town after killing that bird.

It felt nice exploring the town, the monsters were a bit scary, but I got used to the dogs and just shot them. I liked going in people's homes and collecting stuff.

But then I got to school…and then…then I got to hell world…and then I stopped playing for a while. The whole rusty atmosphere and demonic beings lurking in all corners with that terrifying radio sound…it was too much for me. I went to countryside to spend summer at my relatives and forgot about the game til I came back.
