In a voice call with three friends I regularly play:

You couldn’t be further from the truth. I do like single-player video games (especially indie games) but competitive video games usually favor the players who practiced the most whereas the board and card games above have a low barrier of entry. My interest in Minecraft faded away over the years.
0 A.D. and Xonotic.
Sometimes I play Lichess too but private games with friends only.
I have a pretty solid group that I play both Squad and Rising Storm 2 vietnam with. Outside of those games though I kinda prefer solo experiences as I get into my mid 20’s. I just do not care to compete with players and much prefer co-op online experiences. Bad news is that it is really hard to find people to organize game nights with for co-op games.
The reason I like Squad so much is actually because it feels more like a Co-Op game similar to Arma’s popular invasion ruleset. In Squad I can contribute to the team by being a spotter, Logistics man, driver, commander, or squad leader. All of those roles do not rely on me being amazing with a rifle (although I am really good at fps games I just don’t care for shooting as much as I used to). Instead these roles rely on communication and me being a naturally charismatic dude.
Lately, It’s been Stardew Valley, Farming Simulator 19, Arma 3, and Hearts of Iron 4. But Minecraft’s a classic too, along with a few others.
I’ve play a lot of Stardew Valley with my daughters. I’ve also played these with friends and family:
Before I had a massive falling-out with my friends, we liked playing Among Us, Guild Wars 2, and a few others. Right now I’m periodically playing Runescape and Valheim with various peeps.
Just discovered Golf With Your Friends the other day with my usual group. Haven’t laughed so hard in quite some time.
Dota 2, Halo, Tabletop Simulator, and Mario Party via Dolphin.
Remote mario party would be so much fun.
do you have a guide handy for setting up remote play with Dolphin? not asking for the game itself.
i also wonder what the latency is like with remote play, especially for minigames.
Sorry I haven’t checked lemmy in a minute, you can find guides for it on this steam page. Check the About section for the specific games you want to try. It’s pretty simple, latency is good too though that depends on the ping of each player.
Edit: just realized you wanted a general netplay guide, you can find one here or use the netplay section under the Mario Party 4/5/6/7 Netplay Guide, it’s pretty much the same for most games.
Minetest, The Mana World, and Xonotic.
Warframe. I started it on switch 2 years ago, I didn’t start it with my friends, rather made friends on the way. Now is my most played online game.
Elite dangerous. It’s amazing how boring this game is alone and how fun it is with others.
I love playing Super Tux Kart. Racing with my friends is awesome, and I’m personally a huge fan of soccer-mode.
Mobile Legends :-)
