What relaxing games does /vg/ play?
I usually play a few rounds of Pop'n Music before going to sleep.
Wish I could.
Relaxing games? Hmmm... Old point-and-click adventure games from the 1990s can be relaxing. They often have intriguing characters, settings and stories.
I'd like to say Sim City or something too, but dealing with an economy can get hectic.
I do some fishing in Feenix vanilla WoW while playing Pokemon Heart Gold or watching EverQuest 1999 videos.
Why haven't you guys played the best game of the year yet?
General nostalgia thread.
What were your favorite games growing up? I loved playing Sunset Rider, even though I couldn't play worth a shit. I'd spend hours trying to beat a level. I just found it on a rar'd pack of ROMs I dled.
Dragon's Lair with Dirk the Daring
Installed it, played it, finished it and uninstalled it. 1st ever interactive movie game?
Remember when fighting games had less than ten characters?
DIVINE DIVINITY (2002)
Kill the Mutant Master.
Just recently, i've noticed that rampant saving (and loading) has been a terrible habit of mine that keeps me from game immersion where I otherwise would go through the normal game learning curve and learn what would be necessary to progress through the level...
Just earlier I was playing Chaos Theory and promised myself that I would weather the immersion and only quicksave a few times, but my save propensity gradually increased until I was saving after every firefight. I only managed to get through the level where the ISDF storms the bathhouse with their infrared troops by literally saving every few seconds since I managed to get myself stuck with a stealth loadout on hard difficulty (or rather, the middle difficulty which meant it was probably more like normal).
I want to stop this...how do I do it, aside from doing it on my own...? I naturally have very bad self-discipline, but I think a live stream or something might remedy it, being forced to keep up appearances, but then again, i'm not the most confident of gamers nor can I possibly hope to enthrall others with any sort of wry commentary.
Quicksave is one of the reasons game today are so easy. Even tactical shooters like Rainbow Six and OFP are easymodo with lol quikcsave. Personally, a more punishing save system would make games more challenging. It's too tempting to even have the option.
I could not into Rainbow Six.
Even the training levels where they give you a plan, I try to follow the plan and my squad mates almost always lose at least one dude per firefight.
This always pissed me off. Or someone would fire a shot, and then the whole building would know we were there.
It was challenging but easily got annoying.
Play games with auto-save.
Tohno-chan, tell me about your favorite video game.
Ready for Bayonetta 2?
Haha seriously? I thought it was funny that people predicted "joe raynor would cure kerrigan and possibly wind up with her."
And now Blizzard is just trolling.
“Not even death can save you from me.”

Dark Souls 2
Finally finished Dark Soul 2. The game took me over 90 hours, and I died 450 times. So it's one death every 12 minutes!!
Well, there's a 3x3 thread on /an/ and I thought it would be interesting to see what video games you guys like.
These are some vidya I've enjoyed.
Yakuza series, Fallout series, VTM:B, Deadly Premonition, Valkyria Chronicles, GOD HAND, No More Heroes, Red Orchestra & its mods, Max Payne
What are your 2013 picks?
Most fun game of 2013
Witcher3 for GOTY2014!
Come on now, there's gotta be something you're sick of seeing get over used in videogame after videogame.
Something you wish they would just stop with already.
Personally, for one, it's most modern games limiting how many weapons you can cary at any one time to just two or three.
useualy being, one small weapon, such as a hand gun, and one or two bigger guns.
This I suspect to be not for realism, but to cover for their own laziness and unwillingness to make more available weapons for the game.
I don't like how modern games reward you for every little thing you do. Finished the tutorial? here's an achievement. Watched a cutscene? That's another achievement. Talked to some random NPC? +500 XP! Solved a puzzle even someone with down syndrome could figure out? Here, have $10,000!
Another thing I don't like is the sandbox concept. It's cool at first, but then you realize that a game can get boring when the map seems too massive and there are a million possible things to do and the game doesn't really give you much direction as to where to go. That's how I felt when I played Just Cause 2. And a lot of the "new" areas I would explore honestly didn't feel all that different from some old places. When there's a giant map, they do reuse a lot of models and space stuff out.
15% of sales from dlc...
Changing studios in the middle of a series of games.
Arkham Origins wasn't bad but it was missing something that Rocksteady had.
At least, WB has returned to the original studio that started the Arkham franchise...
Achievement trophies for everything. Passing the tutorial- trophy. Your first kill- trophy. Seriously, stop it.
Some of us decided to play world of tanks together. Mostly becuase of the girls und panzar mods for the game.
Mods can be found here.

I <3 tanks
Where's World of Planes?
How about War Thunder?
OK, will try this.
Tanks a lot
Are there specific genres of games you dislike entirely (or almost entirely)?
For the sake of the thread, let's not count sport games.
MMORPGS because they are too social, and other than boring grinding there's not much to them other than the social aspect. I play games to get away from people, not to talk to them.
I used to play an MMOFPS (Dust 517), which was pretty fun, but I felt awkward when talking to other players via headset, so I just quietly killed others on my own.
3D platformers like Mario64 and Croc. The only such game I ever liked was Crash Bandicoot, if that even counts.
I hate it when people link to private or deleted videos, especially when they don't mention what it was they linked to.
I hate a total change in the game. Considering how little free time I had, the auction house suited me fine. =/
ITT, what you're curently playing for the time being, or just finished, new or old games alike.
As is, I'm on assassin's creed brotherhood myself after having finally gotten around to playing killzone 2, which was a tad bit on the disappointing side, but works fine for a mindless shooter I guess.
AC:B on the other hand is pretty good so far I think.
What's mods do you use?
Fallout NV Mods
Playing Madoka Magica Online
