    Default Karek's Game Suggestions

    While my name is in the title, everyone is welcome to recommend, but at least say why you're promoting the game.

    Factorio
    Factorio-logo.png
    So, I noticed a lot of you enjoy playing sim games, so I figured you may enjoy another type of simulation. Factorio is a top-down, pre-rendered, procedural-generated automation simulation game. In the game's current state, the primary goal is to launch a Satellite while dealing with all sorts of caveats. Alien environmental hazards, resource management, and logistical challenges. Of course, you don't have to stop there, you're free to challenge yourself to greater feats, such as launching a rocket every minute, or carpeting the known world with concrete.



    A note, however, this game is currently in-development, Early Access, if you use Steam. It can be purchased on Steam, GOG, Humble Bundle, and their own website at: https://factorio.com/

    Dwarf Fortress
    Df_logo.png
    This is in the same vein of 'sim games'. Dwarf Fortress is a deceptively easy-looking game, based entirely on text menus and ASCII art where you build up a fortress for your Dwarves and deal with all of the FUN that comes with it. Or, you can try to play in Adventurer Mode, which is very much like playing Dungeons and Dragons.

    Dwarf Fortress has been in development since 2002, and was first released in 2006. The greatest hurdle to overcome is the UI, which may turn many potential players off. There is no mouse usage in DF and everything is done with the keyboard. That means, there's a lot of shortcut keys and controls to adapt to. While this game seems simple to run, it's is an incredibly CPU-intensive game. So don't go and try to run it on some laptop from 2003. "Why do the dwarves need each individual tooth simulated?" Dwarf Fotress.



    Dwarf Fortress is free to play, and can be downloaded from the developer's website at:http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/

    Divinity: Original Sin 2

    Perhaps you're not so much into simulation games as you let on and you're more one of those Dungeons and Dragons tabletop players. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is an RPG, in the purest sense, with very D&D-like gameplay. Combat is turn-based, and there are deep (and meaningful) conversations with nearly every NPC. Do you want to be a paragon of justice and bring darkness to its knee? You can do that. Want to bring about the end of the world as you know it? Of course you can. Perhaps you're just interested in yourself. There's littler stopping you from just going on a killing spree and murdering everything that so much looks in your direction.



    The entirety of the game was funded on Kickstarter and can be found on Steam and GOG.

    Divinity sounds interesting. one of the games I was really into years ago was Dungeons and Dragons Online. before that, my first MMO was Star Wars Galaxies, original version of course, which is still the greatest experience I've had in a game.

    during the week I mostly play assassin's creed: origins, my first in the series, but it has beautiful scenery. after that I have a Batman Arkham game. then the latest batman telltale series, which are interesting, they remind me of the old 'choose your own adventure' books.

    witcher 3 is in my steam library too but it never grabbed me, people rave about it though. i'd probably rather play that on my tv from the couch.

    Day of the Tentacle
    logo.png

    This is a bit of a throwback, compared to my previous suggestions. Day of the Tentacle is an old click-and-point adventure, created by LucasArts back in 1993 as a sequel to Maniac Mansion (which was released in 1987) and is a colorful and creative approach to time-travel. As many games from that era, it's not particularly long, clocking in at about 4 hours if you know what you need to do.

    In this story, your primary goal is to capture Purple Tentacle and prevent him from taking over the world, using a trio of deadbeats and wierdos to do so. Purple Tentacle is probably one of my favorite villans of all time.



    The original game has recently been remastered by Double Fine, and can be found on Steam, GoG, and Humble Bundle.

    Duke Nukem 3D! What more can you say about a game that included dancing strippers and catchy phrases??

    https://funnyjunk.com/funny_pictures/1234187/Duke/

    They kept promising to make a new version with greater graphics but the date kept sliding out and never did happen.

    EDIT... DOH!... looks like it did happen and I just missed it... still was a kick ass game

    In MY opinion, >the best PC game in history< is:

    Counter Strike

    Tell me any other game, that was a smash hit when it hit the market, and after, I think it is like 18-20 years now, you can still load up the game, with steam, and instantly find active servers, with real people playing the game. No other game has accomplished that, not even the famous WoW, or even the original starcraft, at least not with the vast amount of people still playing, or the longevity.

    Maybe I just feel that way because I have probably spent about half of my entire life in a CS server.. LOL

    A few other honorable mentions:

    Doom 2016 (get the pirated version from piratebay because the multiplayer is worthless and the campaign is the shit)
    Diablo III (great game for wasting time)
    WoW - World of Warcraft (Wasted a ton of money playing this game in the past, ultimately switched to the Japanese free version, Lineage III, and then played Aion, when it took over)
    Aion (A really cool MMORPG, it is free to play, I just haven't been into Mass RPG game play for a couple of years)
    League of Legends (This game is tons of laughs with friends, OR, for some, it can be the end of friendships)
    Lineage III (This game WAS Japanese WoW, and was basically succeeded by Aion, which is a good one)
    Starcraft II (If you don't own this game, or at least have the pirated version, you are dead to me)

    Old School games, games I haven't played in years:
    Castle Wolfenstein
    Wolfenstein 3D
    Wing Commander (I soo loved this game, wish new 'new versions' would come out, I don't feel the game went mainstream enough, cause it fizzled out)
    Original Doom \
    Commander Keen (Dangerous Dave) > These three games claimed a bunch of my life as well.
    Original Starcraft /
    Original Duke Nukem

    My first computer game was Magic 8 Ball, and I played it on my TI-100, with the 5.25 floppy, and the atari controller. I was fricken 6! In this game, you basically roll an 8 ball around a maze with death possible at every turn, and try to get to the finish, I totally loved it! When they came out with levels that had multiple levels, meaning your ball would fall through the floor, and then you'd be on another level of the course, I remember thinking 'this game is my future, it is what I want to do forever' LMFAO. Then my life blew up when I got my Packard Bell 486, and found real games, and, of course, my first views of porn.

    I never did get into Counter Strike, CS:S, nor CS:GO, but they've got incredibly longevity. Team Fortress 2 seems to be headed in that direction as well (not that I play that either), but time will tell.

    I'm not quite as old as the rest of you, so my computer experience began with Windows 3.x. The first game I played seriously was Quake 3, and the 'engine derivatives' like Star Wars Jedi Academy, or Star Trek Elite Force.
