Interesting video game videosI'm looking for Youtube channels or just single videos which provide detailed analysis about the story/gameplay/game design/whatever of video games or just interesting theories, facts and other stuff like that. I don't really know how to explain it any better so I'm just gonna link a few examples.
RuneScapeAny runescape players, in particular OldSchool players around?
obscure lets playersI want to feel the comfy vibes of listening to someone morosely narrate over a video game. I'm not looking for channels where the person is aware he has an audience and behaves like it, or someone who makes a profit from it. I'm looking for a guy who's doing it for himself, just quietly playing through the game and occasionally making some comment or just talking about some mundane topic, maybe about his life.
GNU/Linux gamesWhat do you play on GNU/Linux?
Games you're currently playingI'm trying to get good at this. Played as a kid a lot and felt like trying my hand again. Still suck of course but the animation and music is so endearing to me I don't even care.
How to get back into enjoying videogamesI've started to feel like playing games are a choir now for the past 2 or 3 years. Downloaded Day of Defeat: Source again to play a little but I know I'll eventually get tired of it. After that, I'll enter another cycle of finding a videogame that fills the void inside of me that reminds me that I'm that my hobbies I've enjoyed as a kid and a young teenager have passed. I think what I'm trying to say is how to do you deal with this situation and is it really possible to find other hobbies if you have the attention span of a gerbil.
Twitch thread #7And so the wizard streams thread returns after a long absence. Feel free to plug your own stream here, discuss active streamers and so on. As far as I can tell I'm the only active one currently, https://www.twitch.tv/stream_wizz (yes I just added another z to the old name, I'm not very creative), if I'm missing anyone just let me know and I'll delete and remake the thread.

Playstation 2When I was a kid I always wanted to have a PS2,but my family was too poor to buy videogames.
WoW Classic turning off autismHello fellow Wizards. So we have this guy over on 4channel that is super autistic, spergy af, and a complete downs clown. He gave me hope that I'll never be as autistic as him.
Indie/doujin/modsThis 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.
90s Waifus and Succubi in Nintendo/Sega/SonyLet's discuss the ups and downs of various female characters from a couple decades back. What did you like about some? Hate about some? Ideally give an example of both in addition to any responses to others ideas. I'll start off with the Donkey Kong Country games. This isn't a furry-themed thread or anything, it's just a really great example I can think of of the contrast that can exist even within a single franchise.
Souls GeneralCan we get sort of a Souls/Bloodborne general thread going? I am mostly a PC gamer, but I do own a PS4, and I just bought Bloodborne. I've been really playing it a lot, and currently I'm fighting the 'Witch of Hemwick.' Anyway, I really like the atmosphere of these games; lonely, foreboding, and depressing. Very much like the life of a wizard in the sea of normal-ness. I think my favorite Souls-like game has to be Dark Souls II. Although I actually never completed it, I had a lot of fun, and I thought that m+k was much more tolerable than it was for Dark souls I.
Handheld games and consolesIn this thread we talk about handheld consoles of any generation and games that we consider good.

Movie Based GamesDoes anyone else enjoy playing movie based games? They are usually really short and easy to play, but it feels rewarding beating games so I always liked them. Toy Story 3 is an example of a really good movie game. Most of them are pretty shit though compared to real games. So does anyone have any recommendations for games based on movies?
Orignal Xbox GeneralThe Sixth Generation was my most nostalgic generation and its the only generation where I owned every major console Playstation,Gamecube,Dreamcast,and Xbox.

Comfy 3DS GamesI need a comfy 3DS game to keep the feels under control. I thought about pic related (Aika Village also seems interesting), but I haven't played it since 2014 and I heard it was ruined by the amiibo jew. The other options would be Fantasy Life and Story of Seasons/Harvest Moon. Which one do you guys recommend?

OpenRCT2Do any wizzies play this wonderful game? If you don't, you should.
MousepadsI need a new mouse pad, but can't find a suitable replacement that matches the autistic preference I've developed with the one I've had for the past 8-11 years now. It's an old promotional Crysis 1 mouse pad that I got in the collector's edition version of the game back in 2008 (I think that where's I got it, anyway), that has 4 layers with a coated polypropylene top and non stick rubber base. Things cracked and falling apart though, but any other mouse pad I've looked has a surface that is either too hard, fast, imprecise & slippery or too slow & muddy, with way too much friction. I tried the Corsair M600, but that shit was way too imprecise. Mouse was gliding all over the place and I had to make a conscious effort just to keep it locked it one location. Now I gotta return it Amazon and it's just a pain in the fucking ass. I'm thinking of trying out the Logitech G440 next, but based on some videos I watched, it's also way too glide prone as well. I wish I could just somehow rebuy the same mouse pad I have now, but I think I'd have better luck finding & buying a fucking Leprechaun instead. The closet I've come to finding something similar was spotting the SADES Lightning on Aliexpress coming directly from China. Even that doesn't seem ideal (also, it looks stupid as hell), which leaves me in a predicament of what to do. Even the act of buying a simple mouse pad makes me want to tear my god damn head open. I hate this world for more than you will ever know. How hard is to find a fucking decent polypropylene mouse pad. Ahhh, the pain in my head & chest. The stress and the bullshit. Just make it stop. Even the littlest things drain me entirely and turn me into a high strung wreck.
List of single-player beatable "PC" gamesI'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.
Wilfully Burying Yourself in Garbage When There's No Need ToI'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.

Maplestory 2Anyone playing this game?
Games that left a lasting impression on youMy 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.
WiiI'll be hacking my Wii soon and I would like to know your favorite and recommended games for the system. I've played the zeldas and marios of it, so I was looking for something that don't usually come up on top 10 lists from gaming sites out there, but if you feel like telling me about your favorite Wii game and it happens to be a popular titles I don't mind at all, I would like to know about it. So far I've put this list together. I've never played any of them so feel free to give your opinions on it as well. Also, anything else about the Wii is fine itt I believe.
Collaborative wizchan gameOk, I know this might get a lot of shit at first due to the way wizardchan has often handled any prospective group projects in the past, but I'd really like to make this work. I'd been staying up kinda messing around all night and I had just been thinking how, in the past, I was really interested in the idea of helping create a wizchan VN or some kind of game. The inspiration hit me again, and recently I have been much less depressed and a lot more motivated, so I'm definitely more than willing to try do what would need to be done. I don't have much coding or writing experience, but I was thinking that we could just use something simple, like Ren Py. I've been studying how it works a bit, and I think I could possibly learn how to do something decent, and I came up with a general story idea that I think could be fun. Not very good at art though, so ideally I would like to have someone who is willing to help with that.
MegamanWith the new Megaman 11 being released next week I'll make this thread. Does anyone here like the megaman series? I played the games as a kid but the strategies you needed to get very far kind of went over my head at the time, so I didn't really play them seriously. I've recently been playing megaman zx on an emulator and I'm having a lot of fun, I love getting all the different weapons and stuff, I think that's the most interesting part of megaman games for me. I'm hoping with this new megaman game we can see even more megaman games in the future, especially stuff from the different time lines and all.
