Can anyone recommend me some games about decision making? Where the choices you make could have long lasting repercussions and everything.


Any Warriors especially the Empires versions


I'll second the recs the other 2 guys gave you.

Monster Hunter is really good and possible to play singe player in most games. World however might not necessarily have as much content until the new DLC comes out in a few months. So you would have to buy the base game + that.
Besides that you could try the earlier games that have G rank, Freedom Unite you could easily spend hundreds of hours on. 3U and 4U, also both good. You could try XX on the switch, I am not sure how much content that has since I haven't played it, but I imagine it's similar.

Warriors series is also really good. I've mostly played the Samurai Warriors series. 1 is good but it doesn't have a ton of content and the character/stage variety is pretty limited. 2 and 2XL are the best of the series IMO, good mix of difficulty with character and stage variety. 3 and 4 have more content but they're not as difficult.
For Empires I've only played Samurai Warriors Empires 2, it was good but I don't know remember it having that much content. Maybe 3 and 4 have more.

For Dynasty Warriors I've only tried 8XL, but I'd say that definitely has enough to keep you occupied for over 100 hours.
The rest of the warriors series I haven't tried.

To a certain degree all these are kind of repetitive, they will involve you hunting the same monsters or playing the same stages again at increasing stages of difficulty to get materials for armor and weapons (in the case of Monster Hunter) or rarer weapons and items (in the case of Warriors games). But if you're okay with that you'll probably like them.


Personally I prefer the Empires versions because I'm not stuck with limited number of stages like with Sengoku Basara, I prefer endless placement possibilities to the same historical placements, Xtreme mode from XL expansions and the castle modes were great too oh and the create a warrior (CAW) is quite addicting too (not in SW2E though that game had other things to make it entertaining like the events among historical charas, the formation gimmick and others)


Factorio is pretty good, if you are into that kind of stuff.
I'm also building and testing submarines in Barotrauma singleplayer, the original free version, I think it's still on github somewhere.


I'm getting a bit of an itch to play some cRPG but I've always been bad at them and drop them fairly quickly, after a few hours or so. Just wondering if there is a "right" one to start with and maybe I'd need to scum out with a cheesy build for the first time too.


what are you bad at? the combat? are you looking for something with a story focus?


for me, I have to be in the mood to put a good amount of time into crpgs, make sure you have a lot of free time and don't have to worry about stuff in real life so you can get immersed and just spend hours slowly going through the world and reading everything


I'd say its mainly the combat and movement. Real time anything has ruined me for turn based stuff.

I'm supreme NEET tier so no worries about time.


Did anything of importance get added to the paid version of Barotrauma?


This is an old thread, but I recommend One Shot. Really screws with your mind


distant worlds universe

one of the best 4x games ever made while being accessible to new players


Grim Dawn


slay the spire


Fallout 1&2 and mayb tactics



To add onto my list:

Okami, the best Zelda

It's extremely comfy.


Does anyone here own Grip or Wreckfest? I’m looking for simple yet fun arcade racers with a somewhat active player base. The latest sonic kart game is bad, Crash Team Racing is not available on PC and pretty much everything else I can think of is either too “simcade”, dead, or crap.



DCS (I'm the last USA F-14 pilot in my head)
SKYRIM (mod as needed)

This game is what Danganronpa should've been.


What is a relatively short, relatively chill JRPG that is available on PC without emulation.
Preferably something that looks good and isn't a rpg maker game.


atelier lulua


Check out the Ys games


they aren't exactly chill unless you play on the lowest difficulties


This game cured my insomnia 10 years ago. Worth the moeny

With regard to the retrofuturistic vibe, Observer comes to mind but it is a horror game. Only like 4 hide n seek sections though if I remember right.

Prey 2017 comes to mind.



I assume that means you found it so boring it managed to make you fall asleep? If so, is that the only thing you enjoyed about it? Well, enjoyment derived dubiously is better than none at all, I suppose. There's quite a few games I'd personally consider to be insomnia cure fuel (most AAA games, 4x games, Dwarf Fortress, Rimworld, Minecraft and others that emulate it, really anything that's free form, aimless, or otherwise without direction, etc.)

>insomnia cure fuel
I listen to corporate muzak to sleep; cheaper than playing boring games.


Funny games?

The humor is pretty juvenile, but I liked Conker's Bad Fur Day.


Portal 2 is fantastic.
The comedic writing is solid and the game-play is great. Highly recommend it.

I seem to recall getting a few laughs out of these two particular game when I played through them a while back. Adventure games tend to be pretty good sources of humor in general when it comes to gaming.

Older RPGs can also be pretty funny as well in spots. Vampire the Masquerade, as an example, could be downright hilarious at times, largely due to its strong writing and the wacky situations you could find yourself in depending on your class.

Other than that, I don't really know. A lot of the time I find myself laughing while gaming only at things that are inadvertently, or otherwise unintentionally funny. Like really bad voice acting, goofy gameplay quirks, or just random & unplanned chaos/mayhem that might happen in whichever game I'm playing that allows for it.

Maybe it's just me, but I thought Lisa: The Painful was pretty funny most of the time.


have you ever played the prince of persia games? they have great immersive atmosphere also witcher 1 is a comfy game


Looking for a turn-based rpg that is easy to get into and doesn't require tons of meta knowledge to be enjoyable but isn't a cakewalk either, like the Dragon Quest series. The less cutscenes and dialogues the better.
I can emulate everything up to and including the PS2.


shouldve said 3DS instead of PS2 I guess, not that it makes a huge difference.


Have you played the Front Mission games? The first one on ds and snes are great.


>>47912 I'm retarded, for some reason I thought you meants tactical jrpgs.


An old game that comes to mind is Lufia II


theres some cool 3d ultima games

i was watching ultima 2 i think? from 1993. it was 3d, you could drag items off inventory inti the game and it throws it. actual movement physics with jumping. when you go in water your camera doesnt just headbob, but tilts around, really

anyway ut seemd to have lots of other cool stuff, i plan on playing it sometime


I'm finally getting a PS4 soon and I'm wondering what good jRPGs there are available for the console (FFXV and DQXI I'm already getting for certain), the less action-RPG the better but I understand that action RPG style has grown in favor in RPGs in general. But, any ones that are perhaps a little light on that aspect by comparison to straight up action games with some RPG elements, would be favorable, if you get what I'm saying there.

Also, is the PS4 version of Subnautica decent, does it translate well to being controlled via controller ect? That game has always seemed so cool to me but alas being a poverty NEET with toaster hand me down patch-up PCs I wasn't able to check it out, and getting a gaming PC is still not a current option even if its in the end objectively better.

>i was watching ultima 2 i think?
You're probably talking about Ultima Underworld, which was pretty ahead of its time in terms of physics and general 3d stuff.

Ultima 2 looks like this


Fallout New Vegas has a pretty good bounty hunter mod called, you guess it, New Vegas Bounties. It has decent voice acting and quests and there is a good ammount of content, and it's free, you only need to own the game or pirate it.

Any games with a diablo 1 aesthetic?


Thanks, if I were to only play one, should I play the first one or the sequel?
Any other game recommendation welcome


If you were to only play one, play the sequel

Maybe it's not quite what you're looking for but Blood Omen always reminded me of Diablo for some reason, even more so than Diablo II.
Have you ever played Phantasy Star on Genesis? It tends to be overlooked because genesis wasn't an RPG console but they great, my favorite is 4, really cool monster design.


cheers im going to download it too, amazingly i had both games in the back of my mind (lufia 2 and phantasy star IV) when asking for games to play.
