Crypt of the NecroDancer

I wasted so many hours of my life on this and the soundtrack is to this day on my favorite playlist ;)

To bad the sequel was Nintendo Switch exclusive and some odd Zelda cross-over. Maybe I’ll play it on an emulator in the future :-/

I wasted so many hours of my life on this and the soundtrack is to this day on my favorite playlist ;)

It’s an amazing game! I still play it from time to time to slowly get to 100% complete it. It still has it’s own active (though niche) community and racing events: CoNDOR.

Regarding the sequel, it never caught my attention. First because it was a Switch exclusive but also then I heard that it wasn’t as challenging as the original. The difficulty curve may be annoying to most, but to me it’s the reason I liked playing it so much.

I love the original, IMO it’s a timeless game. I intend to 100% complete it at some point and then maybe I’ll try to join the racing community if it’s still around.

Recently played Celeste. Nice game. Love it.

10/10? I had to rate it an 8 because many stages seem to be relying on precision, the action mechanics are full of bugs (super moves). Speed runners, and even the Winged Golden Strawberry are using these technics to finish the game.

What are you considering “bugs” ? Things like wavedashing or spikejumps ?

To me they are clearly not bugs. They are at best here by design, at worst emergent gameplay. And an amazing emergent gameplay ! It is clear, as you said some collectibles from the game can only be obtained this way. They clearly knew what they were doing when creating this.

(Yes this is my favorite game of all time, I’m a bit touchy sorry :p !)

The Stanley Parable blew my mind back when it was first released. I remember watching tons of other people play it after I had finished it. I also enjoyed Antichamber alot.

My top 10:

  • Resident Evil 4 – bought this thrice: PS2, PC, Switch.
  • Warframe – f2p 3rd person looter-shooter, but no predatory microtransactions
  • Guild Wars 2 – MMORPG, f2p, but it’s more like a looooong demo
  • Stardew Valley – indie pixel farming sim
  • Control – supernatural, artsy third-person shooter
  • Everspace - space dogfighting
  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive – pew pew
  • Parkitect
  • Victor Vran
  • Ziggurat

Ich bin kurz vor 2500 Stunden Spielzeit in CS:GO. :D Warframe wollte ich auch zocken, aber habs nicht unter Arch Linux zum laufen bekommen.

PS: Mir ist auch gerade aufgefallen, dass wir einen sehr ähnlichen Nutzernamen haben. :)

Warframe läuft bei mir 1a, aber ich musste auch basteln. Versuch’s mal mit protontricks, protondb, Steam native vs library,…

Kannst ja mal nen Thread in !computerhilfe@feddit.de eröffnen und wir debuggen das mal? Kann wenn du willst dort auch meine Settings posten.

I also use Arch btw

Dann werde ich das auch noch mal probieren. Danke für die angebotene Hilfe, da komme ich sehr gerne noch mal drauf zurück, sollte ich das selbst nicht gefixt bekommen. Habe aufgegeben als das Spiel nicht startete und die Shader jedes mal - teilweise stundenlang - neu kompiliert werden mussten.

If you like Factorio you should definitely check out Mindustry. Its open source and you can download a free version, or buy it for 5$ on steam.

Celeste and Shadow of the Colossus for sure.

Portal 1&2 I agree with.

PUBG was amazing, but I didn’t play it for a while and I heard many problems (mostly bots) ruined it.

Return of the Obra Dinn

Celeste again. Celeste is love. Celeste is life.

Edit : how could I forget Warcraft III, especially custom games ! (And Satisfactory is also great ! And Faster Than Light !)

I recently bought Comanche 4, Air Missions: HIND, and Kingdom Come: Deliverance.

Played Comanche 4 because being nostalgic and the RAH-66 looks sexy. Then I got into Air Missions: HIND, which is pretty fun, in a way is a modern version of Comanche 4.

Then I spend the remaining wallet on Kingdom Come: Deliverance, a kind of game that I never really interested but the medieval Bohemia and the Cumans really interested me. But It’s been quite fun to play (and hard), and a gorgeous game too.

The best thing: they all works immediately on Linux.

As many, in no particular order:

Breath of the wild

Final fantasy xiv

Stardew Valley

Command & Conquer Red Alert

Dungeon Keeper

I’m probably leaving some but I’m at work and can’t think of any more

Stardew Valley has gotten me through some dark times in my life, where I didn’t even want to leave my bed. Minecraft and Stardew Valley are my comfort games.

This is certainly a post I want to comment on. This is in no order. And I cannot list 10 games. Behold, the comment from an old true retro enjoyer is here!

  • Oni (this one is #1 for me)
  • Mario Forever (the global fanmake community is something)
  • N the ninja flash game (N v2.0, N+ and N++) (this game is something else)
  • Megaman X series (X1,X2,X3,X4,X5,X6)
  • GTA SA and VC
  • NFS series – Most Wanted, Carbon and Underground 1/2
  • Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3 (2 player combat does not get any better)
  • Counter Strike Condition Zero/1.6
  • House Of The Dead 1/2
  • Metal Slug series (1,2,X,3,4,5,6,7)

A few extra mentions:

  • Mario Forever Galaxy (if Galactica and Mario franchise made a perfect child)
  • Genocide (too obscure, can DM full version personally)
  • VVVVVV
  • Duke Nukem Manhattan Project (the feels is pure rusty nostalgia)
  • DAVE (DOS game, not the same as Dangerous Dave)
  • Pocket Tanks Deluxe
  • Marvel vs Street Fighter (on Arcade)

N ninja was my favorite platformer until the recent Celeste. It is clearly one of the best flash game I played !

Also in no particular order:

  • Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II
  • Quake II
  • Mega-Man
  • 999 (Zero Escape)
  • Halo: ODST
  • File://Maniac
  • Age of Empires II (Definitive Edition)
  • Age of Mythology
  • Star Wars: Battlefront II (the good one for PS2)

Age of Mythology and Quake are awesome. We played Quake III Arena on every LAN ever, even to this day.

@abbenm

I love seeing Age of Mythology listed. It has such flow, and it’s very much targeted to someone like me, I think. I fondly remember AoE2 but at the highest levels its a very intense game. AoM is a bit more medium paced and has interesting layers to it.

One of my favorite things is to play the Greek and hold onto my first age power, the Lightning Bolt on late-age bosses. Then you can use your one lightning strike to 1-hit a boss and kill them. But apparently they nerfed that in updated versions of the game.

I remember playing the San Andreas multiplayer mod (SA:MP) with my best buddy back in the day. Even ran my own little server. Simpler times.

The Dark Mod my favorite (OpenSource)

Portal (nice)

Call of Juarez Gunslinger and Tomb Raider (2013) (very hardcore to play)

Dark Messiah - Might and Magic (very nice first person RPG with different endings)

The Suffering (old but very good First/third person game, also with different endings)

Postal 2 (very black humor)

I’ve never heard of The Dark Mod. I will definitely check that out.

A never ending game, they have every year 8-10 new missions which you can download and add in the same game menu. Currently there are more than 120 missions of every kind and genre (Stealth, FPS, Mystery, Survival horror, Adventure, Prison escape, etc) , created by the community.

Loved Celeste. Also I am not ashamed to admit that I have not touched a From Soft game again after dying like 10 times to the first Dark Souls 3 boss. I need to try again soon.
