Flying simulators? I've been playing a racing simulator, F1 2015, and it's pretty immersive. You really put yourself into the game.
Old School Runescape is a fantastic game, although not single player. however, you can play account types that don't interact with other players called 'iron men'.
Are there any simulators that are so immersive that it parallels real life? Like flying simulators, space simulators, etc. Those that require actual skill in flying, planning, and mathematics.
Something really hardcore would be awesome. Also, something that lets you freely play without a real goal if needed, since you would need to get a grasp of the game and immerse yourself.
One or the other works, but knowing if a game has both sounds great.
I heard those workaholic germans made some work simulators, so they can pretend-work some work when they're not working.
The Microsoft Flight simulators are pretty hardcore.
Back in the day I used to play FS X online,people got mad at me because I was not following flightplans correctly.
Mount & Blade: Warband with mods
Elite Dangerous. Even better if you have a flightstick but a controler will do just fine.
Earth Defense Force 4.1
it is not exactly immersive, and a like-it-or-hate-it kind of series, but if you do like it you will spend dozens of hours on it.
Try rimworld a really comfy game and good timekiller
Creeper World 3.
is a really good strategy game
That’s easy OP.
Illusion of Gaia
They are a trilogy with Illusion of Gaia being the best of them in gameplay feel and story.
i've been looking at rimworld a lot, but i think i'm too much of a brainlet to understand it
Rimworld is pretty much a simpler version of Dwarf Fortress that's sci-fi instead of high fantasy with a much better UI. You can pirate the latest version to see if it's your thing.
What game best fits the 80's fantasy style and has action based gameplay?
Think something like golden axe but in a 3D environment. I would say Dark souls but I'm thinking more high fantasy and less dark fantasy.
High and dark fantasy are not mutually exclusive.
Played it and hated it. Really bad game that's over hyped to hell. Would prefer a bit more high fantasy still.
Thanks for the suggestion
>>39665>Really bad game
Well I got a main quest marker that told me to run off a cliff into the ocean beyond where the map went within the first 5 hours of gameplay. I usually consider a game that soft locks by following the main quest list to be bad..
Could any one recommend a twin stick shooter please? I'd like something fast paced, possibly with a dodge button and the ability to interact with enemy fire not just dodge it. Shooting it down sort of thing.
Nex Machina? Don't remember if you can shoot down enemy fire.
forgot to mention, if you gonna play it, don't start on easy and don't spend too much time playing on normal, hard(stalker) is where the real game is, even if you gonna fail miserably, it's still better than having more resources than you know what to do with.>>39801
some people play pretty well on consoles.
Anything you could recommend for Gameboy Advance ? Preferrably RPG and has a really good story and gameplay
I am playing Yggdra Union right now. The gameplay is so complex that it will really push you to learn about the mechanics of the game, it is not a typical turn based strategy where you can simply unequip, the Morale also doesn't replenish everytime there's a new map. ( The Morale is like HP )
FTL, the music and atmosphere is comfy and each run lasts at most an hour or two and is highly random meaning you can keep replaying almost endlessly assuming you enjoy it. Captains Edition is also a good mod to keep in mind if you exhaust vanilla.
Golden sun is one of the best RPGs on the system. It takes the SNES era and pushes it to 11.
It's my favorite RPG. Others are the Final Fantasy series and the Dept. Heaven Series, Fire Emblem as well.
Summon Night Swordcraft Story 1 & 2, third game is also getting a translation soon after all these years.
Nothing frustrates me more than japanese rpgs with lots of sequels
You have very strange frustrations.
i kind of understand him, the more sequels something has the harder it is for me to begin that series, or keep up with it, this applies for movies, shows, not just games
50 hours long jrpgs can get rather tedious, and I like it better when they are self contained stories. >>39833>the more sequels something has the harder it is for me to begin that series
exactly, look at falcom's legend of heroes series, this is insane…
We're talking about GBA here, most games aren't even 10 hours. Hardly the platform to complain about this.
It's amazing that this game hasn't been mentioned yet - Minecraft. It's intensely immersive, singleplayer and comfy. You get to carve out your own little slice of paradise right on your screen, it feels amazing!
I'm looking for a game that's
comfy always translates to "no or little gameplay" FYI for anyone out of the loop. hate that meme word.
Having fun with friends eh?>>40277
When i think of Comfy i think of Building games and turn based JRPG's
you're looking for minecraft, lol
No, but I like the feeling that I'm in a living world. Helps with the immersion.>>40281
Not minecraft though.
Dwarf fortress is comfy but it's got nothing but gameplay. It actually has nothing else.
Speaking of dwarf fortress, it's worth learning how to play. You'll be tied to the wiki for a while before you learn what a dwarf needs to survive and how to make it.
Adventure mode is good too, but it's a different game than fortress mode. So really there are two games in dwarf fortress.
One warning though, counter intuitively it does benefit from a more powerful CPU. But doesn't need one, really. Just turn the max dwarves down.
Any open world FPS game like Dead Island but easier?
I don't know if it's anything like dead island but the first Stalker game it's pretty good and really not hard at all. Just install some graphic mods, arsenal overhaul and set the difficulty to Master.>>40277
I don't agree, at least what I find comfy are colorful games with "happy" aesthetic. Mario games, for example.
Do you have a safe link?I have the teamextreme launcher but im way too paranoid to run that on my pc
i'm playing the yakuza series right now. it's good. i am having an excellent time my dudes.
if you have no idea what to expect from these games,
just imagine like Miami Vice, Scarface, The Godfather, something like that, but translated directly to a video game. there's a whole lot of talking, cinema cliches, ultra violence, and a protagonist that is pretty unfitting and oddly humane and ethical so the audience can sympathize and self-insert.
play on the hardest difficulty available every time unless you enjoy turning your brain off like the retarded mobile phone playing japanese retard that's the primary consumer of these.
if you own a ps4: start with 0 or kiwami. 0 is a prequel to 1, and kiwami is a remake of 1 (that's loads better than the original, i'm going to be honest). a remake of 2 is coming out soon as well.
if you don't own a ps4: emulate 1 and 2 with a ps2 emulator. there are undub ISO's you can download to avoid the shitty english voice acting.
i have been hesitant to play this for years because personally i find japan's romanticizing of these nigger slime to be disgusting. yakuza all deserve to be buried in shallow graves. but thus far, the game has depicted them as psychopathic, superficial, backstabbing children that prey on their own communities and make everyone's life shit. which is true to reality. so i am okay with it.
I have 0, like the combat but don't really like the sidequests. Reminds me of S.links in Persona and I hate those.
I need a game that's not only free, but true open world as well.
That's a tall order there mate. Open-world roguelikes are the only thing I can think of, UnReal World and Cataclysm DDA for example.
daggerfall is free
It isn't free, but Project Zomboid has a sprawling open map with no loading screens. You could just pirate it, the process is pretty simple. There's also codes given out during mass-testing in MP sometimes, so you could wait until one happens and ask around for a spare code.
At such a point you might as well play a VN.
I could also try some of those if you have recommendations.
I'm interested to hear some as well.
I might give it a try. I do have a DS.
>>40406>I do have a DS
Oh, that's much better then, because on pc you'd have to emulate stuff like closing the lid or blowing at the microphone. It's doable but it doesn't feel right. Start with Hotel Dusk if you play them.
999 (The Nonary games), Zero Escape and the Ace Attorney games
>>39797>you're trying to rescue a succubus
dropped, playing Unreal World instead
This. Nothing comfier than a good roguelike. One of my favourites is Pixel Dungeon (for Android), I've spent so many hours on it.
For anyone who has never played it, I fully recommend Arcanum: Of Steamwork and Magick Obscure.
I played this so many times in my teens. It's an RPG which takes place in a world where magic and technology exist alongside one another, though not always comfortably. There are Elves, Men, Orcs, Dwarves and dozens of beasts lurking in the wild to assault you.
You gain XP as you complete missions both major and minor, some for the sake of the narrative and some for the sake of enjoyment or experience. You essentially opt to become a "magic type" by learning spells, potions and such or a "technological type" by learning to use guns, producing mechanical traps and so forth. You can attract a small group of followers, including a stray dog you save from being beaten up (if you know where to find him in time). You battle zombies, wraiths, goblins, giant spiders, dark elves and tons more.
The central plot is that the zephyr on which you were travelling crashes after being attacked by two planes. You are the sole survivor of this crash, and discovering you there among the wreckage is a guy who belongs to a religion which believes you to be the Chosen One (cliched I know) prophesied to rise from the ashes etc. You fight your way to a nearby town, where the guy's teacher, a senior wizard, has been forced to flee after being attacked at the inn. From there on in you and your buddy travel across the (giant) map, visiting the modern city of Tarant, the ancient and dishevelled kingdom of Dernholm, the small mountain village of Stillwater, and several others towns and cities, each with its own character and set of mysteries to solve.
The atmosphere of the game is rather bleak, and the soundtrack (available on youtube) is very melancholy which I absolutely love. Although it may appear dated to younger players, I find its basic aesthetic to be quiet comfortable and underwhelming.
If you are a fan of Lord of the Rings, you probably will enjoy it.
Arcanum is a very flawed game that's really worth playing only if good writing is enough for you to put up with horrid gameplay (and we're talking about writing that's not as good as Planescape with combat quite significantly worse than it) and graphics that were pretty poor even at the time. It's a good game but I'm not sure if I would recommend it for most people, it appeals only to a fairly small niche audience that values writing over everything else, and at that point really you might as well go for a gamebook.
>>41227>and we're talking about writing that's not as good as Planescape with combat quite significantly worse than it
arguable and no
In what way is the gameplay "horrid" (unless you forgot to enable the turn-based mode, that is)? It's pretty typical for rpgs of that generation.
My literally only problem with Arcanum was the stupid ally AI.
What's wrong with the gameplay? You can either fight in turn-based mode or in live action mode (which I prefer).
In my opinion it is one of very few games which creates a world which is both recognizably mundane (and therefore realistic) and also full of interesting detail, an awesome backstory, a great sense of humour (the character names etc) and much more besides. And the fact that you can complete the game having only completed around 30% of the available tasks / missions is great IMO as it allows so much to be discovered. For example, rescuing the group of Iron Clan dwarves trapped by dark creatures in their mine kingdom is the result of several other smaller missions, each irrelevant to the main narrative. Or discovering the location of Magnus's ancestral home and watching his delight as he finds out that he isn't just some wandering, rootless, pathetic dwarf by an ancestor to a great dwarf kingdom. Or breaking into the prisons at Dernholm and talking to the various inmates and becoming a master lock-picker by doing so if that's what you've been training yourself to become. It's just an awesome game. And it also develops your moral compass IMO. I first played it in my early teens, and again and again you are forced to analyze a situation and decide what is the moral thing to do, even though it isn't always clear. And your decision affects your narrative from that moment onwards (e.g. whether you help the priest in Shrouded Hills destroy the machine, or report him to the police for asking you). I must admit that one time I saved the game and then decided I would just travel around Tarant to see how many NPCs I could take out before my small posse was annihilated. But when I started doing that I felt immense guilt and shame, and loaded the game immediately to my restore point.
It simply doesn't work both neither in turn-based nor real-time. It's horribly unbalanced and has a ton of weird or downright bad design decisions, some things make it break down completely (harm), lack of the ability to command your AI leads to many clusterfuck situations, displayed to-hit percentages are completely busted, I could go on for hours. I have never really seen anyone defend Arcanum's combat before, from my experience just about everyone agrees that it ranges from barely adequate to gamebreaking depending on character build and personal tolerance for bullshit. Troika could seemingly either do good writing with bad gameplay (arcanum and VtMB) or good gameplay but shitty writing (ToEE), never both.
so, it's not metroidvania in the slightest, just straight up platformer?
Yeah, this was a stretch goal sidegame for people who liked classicvanias.
I don't know, I unironically enjoyed Arcanum including its gameplay. Discovering its wonky sides and exploiting them was a part of the fun too.
Same here, and I also don't think its combat was worse than PS:T's. But maybe that's because I only put points into wisdom and intelligence when I played PS:T.
What are some good rpg`s where i can be a Wizard? I played Dragon`s dogma recently and the only thing that kept me going was the sorcerer vocation. I started the original Witcher but i don`t think i will have the willpower to finish it. In essence the game must be an rpg, have a mage class and i want to customize my character(no way i am playing a succubi as wizard).
I am honestly thinking about going back Skyrim after 6 years or playin all elder scrolls. In which case i would stream, just to record the experience.
Kingdoms of Amalur has some pretty badass magic, sadly the game is somewhat unfinished and balance is a bit broken, don't abuse any of the crafting proffesions if you don't want to ruin it for yourself because it's an easy way to get OP as fuck very quick in an already fairly easy game. Arx Fatalis has a unique rune-based magic system, barely any customization though but it is a great game. If you like turn-based combat I guess Divinity: Original Sin also qualifies, you can do some very fancy elemental combos pretty much every fight and there is a lot of spells. If you're okay with a roguelike Tales of Maj'Eyal has some pretty fucking crazy spellcasting classes - chronomancers, psionics, celestials who literally use the sun and moon to burn their enemies, all sorts of wacky and fun shit.
Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale are also great if you like dnd style gameplay. It also offers quite a bit of customization. You literally become a god as a mage. Most modern games like to keep you sane and restricted in terms of powers even later on, but these games let you go nuts.
Something to keep in mind though is that while DnD mages get stupidly powerful by the end they're not exactly good nor very fun for a significant while. That's why I think something like Divinity: Original Sin is better - the magic system is much better overall while still making you feel god-tier by the end, especially in the first game.
All great suggestions and i am looking into them. >>41336
I used to be a dungeon master in tabletop rpg and i agree with this statement, i had players spamming disintegrate and some prismatic torrent, my solution was implementing a giant with a sword that disintegrate everything it touches.
Can any one recommend me some co op games to play with nephew on PC. Got 1 360 pad and an arcade stick but other wise it's keyboard only.
Total war campaigns? The grand strategy stuff isn't the greatest but it gives cool context to all your battles, also the are pretty much endlessly replayable until you get bored thanks to mods.
Insurgency, arma 2 and 3, zombie panic source
GTA online is pretty fun.
Any games where you come back to base between missions to chill with the boys like MGS5 or ArmA 3? Bonus points if your actions reflect the look of the base.
Have you played Deadly Premonition? It is often called Twin Peaks the game. Its a horror game but all the actual gameplay is awful. It is still one of my favourite games because of the setting and story.
I was afraid to mention it but I already played that one. Wished it had more mystery and exploration.>>42352
Not yet. I heard good things about it but at the same time I also heard that the PC version was buggy.
Also I am aware of the Silent Hill series.
Shenmue fits your request. The first one.
Mass Effect 1 & 2
Star Wars KOTOR 1 & 2
Mizzurna Falls was "Twin Peaks: The Game" before Deadly Premonition came out, sadly it's only in Japanese.
Then there is Night In The Woods and Thimbleweed Park (this was straight up marketed as influenced by Twin Peaks), both are set in small towns, have little action and have that kind of gloomy feel, but I can't say they're very good.
Also these >>42357>>42399
Not sure what you're looking for but maybe try EYE: Divine Cybermancy or Shadowrun: Dragonfall
I suggest Alien: Isolation. Its a bit of a horror game, I hope you don't mind that too much. The atmosphere in it is amazing, and the style of stuff is very much like what you posted in the image.
Path of Exile
Seconding Thimblweed Park, especially if you like 80s/90s point and click games. It's made by a guy who was in Lucasarts around that time, too
Played the first one on an Xbox one. Ran fine on that. I liked it, plays like a 2goth4u Zelda
I just played and finished both this spring. No they're not "2goth4u zeldas" as the kid said. They draw from a lot of well known games, but they're distinct. I enjoyed them without feeling like I was playing knockoffs.>Are the games fun?
They were for me.
I also had fun with it but the first one really was a 2goth4u zelda.
There was nothing "goth" about it.
Nothing at all?
Do I really need to start dumping examples?
Yeah, I am sorta curious to see your loose definition of "goth."
I bet it's anything with demons or dark colors.
Divinity Original Sin 2
Tales of Berseria
Glad to see the goth police here, telling us what is and isnt goth
I'm still waiting for that pic dump of monsters
Still waiting for you to dump pictures of Robert Smith
Unlike you I don't confuse goth with emo.
Ok now you are looking for replies
I had an anon on another board recommend me Vampire bloodlines. It's sort of dark and reminds me of early 2000s aesthetic. Matrix comes to mind.
Can any one recommend an open world game where loot matters and you're excited to open treasure chests to see how it changes your character's abilities?
Realm is a 7 year hold out from the tail end of a different era.
It's still an mmo and I'm not interested in those grind fests.
Any one recommend a good dungeon crawler? Something with cool loot.
So you mean a dungeon crawler like wizardry or like diablo?
Torchlight 1 and 2 (made by some of diablo'2 devs), Grim Dawn, Titan Quest, Path Of Exile if you don't mind online stuff (you don't really need to team up with someone but you need to trade to get decent gear).
Could you guys recommend me some cute 2d platformers? Something like old nintendo games, but I already beat all of those.
Did you play Super Princess Peach?
It is different but not in a bad way. I enjoyed my playthrough of it.
are good. I'm not going to give you the obvious titles because you said you played them all. So here's a few titles that are less known.
Bonk’s Adventure and Bonk's Revenge for the GB. Catchy tunes and interesting gliding mechanics. Bonk is quite endearing himself. Both Momotaro Thunderbolt titles, also for the GB are a favorite of mine. Monters are interesting to look at and if you're willing for an extra challenge try not using Bird half the levels. Kid Dracula is one of my favorites, also for the GB. Levels are fun to explore and there's actually quite a challenge in some of them. You mentioned you want cute so Trip World is a must try, though I think you might know that one already. For the SNES you have Melfand Stories, two titles, again, worth checking out if you're looking after cute, but those titles are more arcadey in nature. If you're interested in some platforming with puzzles, Samurai Kid is pretty good. Finally on the Sega side you have Tails Adventure for the Game Gear. I know there are many more titles I can't remember out of the top of my head. I'll post some more. if you liked those.
Forgot to add Joe&Mac to the list. Did you try any of those anon? Let me know which ones you prefered. I might know some similar titles.
Can't play it on this computer since I killed my gpu, sadly>>43466
I did play it, it's pretty fun, might try to complete it, since I didn't the first time.>>43467
You know, I've ignored the game boy most of my life, some of those I played, like bonk and kid dracula (loved this one). Gonna try Melfand Stories, looks pretty fun.>>43486
Joe and Mac is the shit.
Thank you guys.
Your welcome anytime, hope you have fun.
Can someone recommend a game that's pure grind? Preferably single-player, PC-compatible and not mobileshit. Having to make decisions or pay attention to plot details exhausts me, and I want something I can space out to, maybe while listening to music or something.
Minecraft is a fun one to zone out to.
Craving for a good single player FPS but I think i've played them all. Semi-tolerable plot would be a bonus.
Good modern or good classic?
Anything, please. Mods or total conversions are fine too.
Have you played Unreal (the first one) yet?
Or any of the Tribes games (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tribes_(series)
There is also Painkiller (which kicks my ass and I haven't actually compleated it)
I also unironically liked Duke Nukem forever, mainly because I played it for what it was and had no expectations going in. Not a deep game, more of a modern update on a 90s style fps.
I have heard good things about Borderlands 2 but I haven't played it myself.
If you are looking for something more brainy then the Deus Ex games are great, as well as the portal games. Portal two is probably my favorite puzzle game ever.
And for a mix of brains and action Bioshock is almost a masterpiece. Loved the first, liked the second, thought the third was ok. Kind of hope they don't make anymore.
Thank you for your post but i've played and finished everything out of the list.
No One Lives Forever?
How about rise of the triad or bulletstorm?
Fear is great but you probably played it. Same with Metro. Lets see, something diffrent.
I have been meaning to try Exodemon but I haven't played it yet so I don't know how good it actually is. You could give it a shot as it looks pretty different from most things out there.
Oh, there is Dishonored, which I found the stealth to be a bit easy but I guess the game could be really hard if you decided to fight everything head on.
I remember Second Sight and Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy being pretty fun but I think they are both 3rd person.
I also really liked The Darkness and The Darkness 2.
single-player military strategy games, preferably 1914 onwards, and ones suitable for a retard like me
I liked Blitzkrieg and Panzer General, but anything of that nature is welcome
if there are online-focused ones I won't mind, but so long as there is a singleplayer mode of some sort I'll take it
Have you played Singularity?
Thank you, but played them all. I think it's hopeless for me to search for something new. I'll just replay Quake with addon's again.
I absolutely love the first 2 Commandos games, although I'm not sure if you could call them 'strategy'. Did you play Sudden Strike? It's kinda like Blitskrieg if I'm not mistaken.
Postal 2 is the only FPS I managed to play all the way through without losing interest but you probably already played it. Damn some of the weapons in that game are fun though, I love the machete and the baseball bat. Beating it on the highest difficulty was a pretty entertaining challenge too, it's like a totally different game.
What are your favorite puzzle games wizzies? I've played some of the popular ones like Portal, Talos Principle, and some of the Zachtronics games (which were too hard for me to beat fully, but I'm proud of how far I got anyway). I also played the Layton games up to Last Specter, and Puzzle Agent.
The Talos Principle has my endorsement. I'm a little biased because my favorite subgenre/whatever of sci-fi is sentient AI. The whole backstory to The Talos Principle is absolutely fascinating to me.
Portal 2,tetris, and columns are my favorites.
Meteos was very fun
Are there any other games with light social/dating sim elements like the s. links and free time in Persona and Trails of Cold Steel, that also have a similar comfy setting (by which I mean a town/school you can explore)? Seems like the only games I can find that have something similar all have terrible settings and atmosphere or are entirely menu driven VN style in towns.
Tokyo Xanadu EX+ is literally a "what if persona and ys had a baby made on the trails of cold steel engine", it's really good and exactly the type of game you're looking for.
Thanks I'll check it out, it's also by NF so it sounds exactly like what I'm looking for
Rune Factory series
3 + 4 are both good,
1 + 2 I've never played but I've heard they're unpolished.
Console ones I know nothing about.
There's also Azure Dreams if you don't mind roguelikes. Not much town exploration to do but you can romance the succubi in town and basically build a harem.
Games with a good story and characters?
Games that have given you a strong emotional reaction?
I finished my 2nd playthrough of Mother 3 a week ago and I can't think of any games I could play next that could match the level of storytelling. I somehow felt very sentimental at the end of the game (which is how I felt at the end of Mother 2 as well), which rarely happens to me.
To give you an idea of the type of games I'm looking for, here's some that I've already played that do it for me:
- Chrono Trigger
- Deus Ex
- Half Life 2
- Star Wars KOTOR 1 + 2
I would really appreciate it if you could share some titles! Any genres or years are fine, though I have a preference for games that are for PC or for console games that can be emulated on PC.
Planescape Torment, Arcanum, Trails in the Sky (only played the first one so far, and it was pretty slow but picks up in the sequel, or so I've heard)
Shenmue 1 and 2, although it's a "like it or hate it" kind of deal.
Try the other Square rpgs from the 90s, FFVI, FFVII, Vagrant Story, Xenogears, etc.
If you liked Bioshock you can't go wrong with System Shock.
EYE: Divine Cybermancy it's a amazing and weird rpg/shooter made with Half Life's 2 engine.
Pathologic has some of the best writing I've ever seen, really weird and unique game, if you like it you can also try The Void, by the same studio (Icepick lodge).
Planescape Torment also has great writing, but you'll have to deal with walls upon walls of text, and stay the hell away from the "sequel".
Other games with great plot imo are: Max Payne 1 and 2 (there's a third one but it's way too different); Legacy of Kain games, specially Soul Reaver; Mafia; Silent Hill 1-4.
*anything nintendo, hasn't got to be nintendo necessarily but still preferred
*available on the Wii, Wii U, 3DS, or GNU/Linux
*can also be a challenge
*calming, but excitinig
*something like pikmin
*something underrated, or an indie game
Any games about organized crime with an engaging plot?
Something like Mafia or Max Payne
I was just about to say Mafia as it was the only AAA game like that I have played with a focus on having a ok/good story.
Most other stuff I have played about organized crime sort of treated the plot as just a after thought to justify all the game-play.
Sleeping Dogs, Yakuza
Yeah, as far a video game stories go, it's hard to top Mafia. Especially when so many games are just trying to be gta.>>45488
Love them but already played them.
Gonna try The Getaway which came out the same year as Mafia, I don't think it'll be as good but we'll see.
>finally get a gaming pc
>overwhelmed by the choice available, have no idea what to buy
What kind of games do you like? Maybe we can recommend something
just get anything. if you play it less than a few hours, idk the limit look it up, you can refund it
Every bounty hunter game I can think of got canceled before release.
You'd try some mapmaking for minecraft's adventure mod.
I almost find all those qualities in such issue.
I have not played many games, but the ones that I have enjoyed most are open world where I can explore and get quests and stuff. For example, Legend of zelda the windwaker was probably my favorite, then star fox adventures and one of the assassin's creed games, skyrim and mass effect 3 were also up there. What are games like this called? Is it an RPG? I have an xbox 360 but only played like 5 games on it so I want to try another one. I want to be able to explore and do quests and make choices that affect the story. Anyone got any suggestions?
Something that feels similar to fallout 3 or nv. Nothing medieval
If you liked Assassins Creed try out the Batman Arkham games, they are the same style of game, oh and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is also good.
For something like Skyrim check out the previous Elder Scrolls games (Morrowind and Oblivion) and Fallout 3/New Vegas. For something like Mass Effect try out Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, which was made by the same people. As for Zelda, there are a bunch of them and they're all good imo (the main series at least)
NiNo Kuni is comfy as fuck. I'd recommend it.
Wizards, could you recommend me a game to play while listening to podcasts?
I want to devote most of my attention to what is being said in podcast, so the game can't have dialogue, much of a story, or text that could distract me from that. In other words, it has to be visually entertaining, but mindless in all other accounts.
So far I've been playing Tetrix and SuperTuxKart, but I've grown tired of them. Could you please suggest something?
Try some bullet hell or sports games
Mount and Blade
Monster Hunter series
Fire Pro World is perfect for what you are after!
Many people buy the various Fire Pro games not even to play the games themselves but simply watch and sim the matches because the AI/logic system is so good.
If you are like many Wizards out there you are probably either a fan of anime or comic books or other fantasy literature/characters, etc.
So just saying you can go to the Steam Workshop for Firepro or hell just create your favorite fantasy characters yourself if you want and set them up to fight using logic you expertly program into them and then set up a CPU Vs. CPU match and see who wins.
You can make the ring look however you want to along with the turnbuckles (corner pads) and change the color of the ropes, etc and not only that you can have whatever background music you are willing to download or use from your existing MP3 library for it.
So yeah just pointing out Fire Pro World isn't exclusive to needing to use real life or created wrestlers.
You can literally use or create any kind of character that you want.
When the AI/logic is programmed well enough matches can sometimes go for a long time like say 60 minutes or longer but thats usually a rarity and the in game clock runs a bit fast so the real time when it goes 60 minutes is more like 30 minutes but just saying the game has a lot of fun and intrigue to offer and most important of all vast customizeability.
There's mods out there that can make it even better.
You can play and enjoy Monster Hunter World just fine without touching any of the online crap
Maybe, and I may be talking crazy here, but maybe if you want and enjoy the game you should just buy it.
I like to try before I buy, no need to act so condescending wizzie
looks good, will give it a try, thanks
Here's your answer: DF.
Something I without a lot of text and reading so I can listen to audio books, podcast, and the like while playing.
I am getting sick of solitary.
I played only a handful of games throughout my life, preferring to stick to a few primarily multiplayer games. Most of them lost their playerbase, were patched and changed to hell by the developers or simply became stale to me. I have nothing to play now, I lack clear reference points I can rely on to find games I can potentially like, I don't want to spend money on games and after having accustomed to Steam I feel rather uncomfortable downloading games off smaller/public torrent sites that don't verify their uploads for viruses and other bullshit. I could give emulation a try, I thoroughly enjoyed playing vidya that I missed out on as a kid.
To sum it up, I'm looking for a game that:
- Isn't demanding in terms of system requirements
- Focuses more on action/combat, requires active player input, basically everything that isn't strategy/RPG, I guess; although I did enjoy Mario & Luigi games very much because of the dodging/parrying mechanics.
- Isn't set in a Fantasy/Medieval setting
- Is relaxing, you can zone out and play
- Is atmospheric
* Can be from older consoles (4-6 Gen, preferably)
* Offers Metroidvania-style free exploration, preferably
* Is Singleplayer, preferably
I'd also love to hear Torrent sites wizards recommend downloading games from. I'm registered on Playbits, but from what I've gathered the way things are done there is you upload whatever and no verification is done apart from the rating system, so I fear there might be malware, same goes for Piratebay. I'm a complete idiot when it comes to technology, so forgive me if I'm wrong or excessively paranoid.
guys i want free good games (yes im poorfag) , also if linux native that would be amazing
admittedly I have never any of these games but dead rising and dead space, maybe? though I don’t think they are relaxing…
Do wizzies know any Korean-CS-ripoff-style games, that are free to play and are free from P2W mechanics?
I tried this with The Witcher 3 because that's the way I usually play these games, but the insane loading times in between deaths made the trial and error of learning how to get good way more tiresome than it ought to have been
Counter strike global offensive is now free to play.
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.>>46478
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
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)
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.
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
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.)
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.
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.
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.
>>47915>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.
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.>>47909
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.
Anyone have recommendations of easy games to help chill out after a stressful day?
Will play Phantasy Star IV next, what's the average difficulty like? >>48664
what kind of games do you like? do you mind grinding, somewhat repetitive gameplay?
>>48667>what kind of games do you like?
Just about everything other the RTS games and really old text based adventure games.
I don't mind grinding if I actually like the gameplay, but if the gameplay it's self isn't fun then grinding only compounds that. It is the reason why I dropped games like cult simulator and certain Korean f2p mmos in the late 00s.
But if I like the gameplay then I can spend months grinding away at a game I like.
Also every game that isn't super short tends to be "somewhat repetitive", which isn't usually a bad thing as long as the gameplay is good or there is enough content to justify the added length.
To say what I don't want is something like most idle clicker games would be bad. That would be all grind, no gameplay, and hyper repetitive with no content to justify it other then watching numbers go up.
I also wouldn't want to play a rts as a easy chill out game, since playing those feels like doing homework to me back in my school boy days. Not a feel I would like to repeat in my down time.
And I just don't like most old school text based adventure games because they are just shit imo.
Anything else that counts as a easy chill game is something I would at the very least be willing to try.
ok what the hell, am I missing something or is there no explanation for what the skills do in Phantasy Star IV? some I figured out by trying them in battle, others I am still clueless what their purpose is.>>48668
Dragon Quest Builders 2?
to you if you still happen to post here, or anyone who's played it, can you tell whether or not you encountered this issuehttps://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/563334-phantasy-star-iv/53076192
it's driving me insane, at first I thought it was a problem with the emulator (retroarch - genesis plus gx) or my gamepad but it doesnt appear to be the case.
Why did you ask twice?
That looks perfect. >>48669>Dragon Quest Builders 2
That looks like minecraft with a dragon quest game stapled on. Probably not my cup of tea. Nothing wrong with the game, just two things that I was never in to combined doesn't seem appealing to me.
Games where you're an insignificant character and not the focus of the game, struggling to get by? I especially like the idea of having like a little hideout where you can hide and plan your next move.
Preferably with as little story as possible
State of Decay 1 or 2
I liked Realm of the Mad God, it's a rough-like bullet hell game and F2P and also I just got Grim dawn, it's a Diabolo Like Game.I furthermore recommend to get 3Month of Xbox game Pass for 1$ so you can try it out.They have a lot of Games there as well.
It's strange that there arent many games like this
you just described Kenshi, go check it out. you can do a ton of things to increase the difficulty as well
Any third person fantasy/medieval PC game with good immersive universe, well paced and a good story?
I don't want talking simulators.
My PC is a 6yo toaster and can't support DX10 or more.

These are the games I recall having in my collection. I honestly have hacks just to tell myself "hey I'll play that some day" and have not yet because I suck at beating nes games as it is without trying a rehashed version.
I wonder what the best homebrew one is? I bet there's something I don't know about. I only just realized Crystalis existed a couple days ago and I'm 30. It's so new. OH, I forgot
It was a post 90s NES game too. >>43450
Did they really? >>43449
Did you play Megamari and Super Marisa land (or new super marisaland)? They have lots of Touhou fan made games. I'm sure you've done Eternal Daughter and Cavestory already. >>45346>>45341
They did have a lot of nice JRPG games the PSX did. I'm a bum or I'd have a collection of them. I have a magnet link for when I get real Internet access to download like 10 or so PSX games. As it is I'd not have the space to back them up so I don't bother to download ISO files. Plus I got mad when I realized that bin/cue is harder to find but is better for the Linux route of emulation. Lakka wanted bin not iso nor img. >>45341
If you liked Chrono Trigger I'd think you'd like Golden Sun 1/2/3. It's of my favorites. It's no Final Fantasy 7 though, but the music makes it nice. Out of all RPGs I played Chrono got the music element and Golden Sun got that too, Final Fantasy 7 was the only one to actually make me truly FEEL. FF7 ruined me for other games. >>45513
I'd help but I'm no pleb. They say Terraria or however that's spelled, my sources do. I have no idea beyond normalfaggot gossip though. Never touching steam. there are other games though but I forget them all. The T one gets spammed online a ton though. >>46215
You have linux? Emulators for ya then. Lakka wants bin/cue though, don't collect ISO/IMG for PSX. >>39597
Also, Wine can emulate windows applications they say, but if you're poor I guess it won't work without overkill on hardware.
Every played the Gothic games? The first two games are everything you described, third one gets a lot of crap but it's not really that bad
I haven't. I'll check this out.
Would Crusader Kings 2 suffice?
Im playing the first one and it’s pretty nice, but I’ve reached a point (5-7hrs in) where the characters won’t stop talking, there are cutscenes every couple minutes and the game doesnt really open up yet. I don’t care much about the story so it’s starting to annoy me a bit.
I have no idea what to play next. Help
I want a third person single player game with good story and preferably not RPG
I have a toaster PC (Win 7, 1GB VGA, dx 9.0c)
What wiz above me said, also Resident Evil 4 (you don't need to play 1-3)
Silent Hill 1,2,3,4
I have full on autism and that game is still boring and not fun to me.
I don't see why people still play it when there are so many other better games.
old animal crossing games
why not the new one
Probably some inane elitist shot about the character personalities that no one paid attention to in the first place.
I am looking for something that
*evokes the feeling of a comfy adventure like the first two pokemon games
*Not too much combat
*hand crafted, not random generation
Dragon warrior monsters for gbc
Final fantasy adventure 1-3 (I think these games go by a couple different names iirc)
Super mario land 2: 7 coins
Pokemon jade (a bootleg pokemon game thats just a modified and translated version of a popular jap game series that i forget the name of)
pokemon romhacks like rocket version, original diamond version, crystal clear version etc
gb/gbc zelda games
dbz game for gba attack of the sayins i think its called, the rpg one
thats about all i can think of off the top of my head. dragon warrior monsters i think youll really enjoy. the rest i think youll like too
I want a game where you go on an adventure. Something like Demon's souls (not the gameplay meme like all the souls knock offs) the sense of adventure. Can be 3D or 2D. Can't be a rogue like. No dialog wheels or endless cut scenes.
Im looking for something similar to Bully. By that i mean a comfy, non serious/dark, stress free game. My favorite part of bully is the nerd missions and the comic shop save point. So maybe something in that vain? Obviously theres gta, yakuza, saints row etc but those are too serious, im looking for something light hearted like bully.
Thats a great rec and exactly the type of game im looking for, but ive beat it twice already unfortunately. I should’ve mentioned in my first post my available gaming platforms are xbox one, and a crappy laptop. So im pretty limited unfortunately
this post is really old but it's just so stupid. go AROUND, you don't have to walk in a straight line
Akiba's Trip maybe if you don't mind the otaku subculture stuff. I have never played any of the games in the series though so I don't know what they're worth.
Thanks for pointing that out. Gave me a chuckle.
don't starve together?
Im not sure how well my crappy laptop will emulate psp but ill give it a try, thanks wizzie
i tried it and didnt care for it much, but still thanks. It wasnt too serious or anything, i just couldnt get into it

saya no uta is a comfy VN, by the same person who made madoka magica, never watched it but saya no uta is a very interesting game that had me thinking about the story a while after I finished it
with regards to games I would recommend, I had fun playing VA-11-HALL-A and a lot of fun playing the original dark souls a few years back, don't waste your money on the remaster it looks worse in some bits.>>41717
the games I had most fun on co op was factorio though I would have had as much fun playing it on single player.
if you like factorio try zachtronics games or getting into CS/discrete mathematics.
I would like to get into arcanum or underrail but am too low IQ for either, whenever I tried to ask for help about them online I was responded with "fuck off troll" I dunno if the community is schizophrenic or if I am that retarded.
