      BTW this is based on this post from mid 2018.

      In my case it would be 1:

      A grand strategy game but with way deeper simulation of not just the nations warring but the land they are warring in as well, complete with procedurally generated worlds. Thankfully for me this already exists.

      2: a dating or just general social interaction sim that isn't just for fapping or fetish indulging with randomly generated people with personalities which aren't just anime archetypes which you can socialize with as the game gives advice to you and explains what you are doing right or wrong.

      3:KSP but with top-notch graphics and more planets, dwarf planets and star systems. This one is also real thankfully, and even coming somewhat soon!

      4:Outside: the game. Please.

    3. Has anyone done a Play-By-Post game? Tips?

      Has anyone done a play-by-post (PBP) game? Where you play online not in some service like Roll20, but in a forum structure (like Reddit, the Paizo forms, or, hey, here)? I'm thinking about...

      Has anyone done a play-by-post (PBP) game? Where you play online not in some service like Roll20, but in a forum structure (like Reddit, the Paizo forms, or, hey, here)?

      I'm thinking about starting a PBP game of Pokemon: Tabletop Adventures somewhere (maybe Reddit or Discord, not sure), but I'm not sure if I want to create maps for the whole thing. When I was working on my homebrew 5th Edition campaign, the thing that annoyed me most was map creation (mostly overworld, but since this is Pokemon and I know where I'm basing it off of, I don't have much trouble with that). I'd only use "maps" for combat (more like I'd use a combat grid that I steal off of Roll20).

      Would anyone here that have either run games in a PBP format or just GM'ed games in general have any tips for doing something like this?

      For those of you that have setups, how's it going?

      • What have been your favorite games/experiences so far?
      • What are those of us without VR missing out on?
      • In what was does VR still need to grow?
      • Do you think it will eventually catch on more than it has?

      @steamdb: Valve is working on "Steam Cloud Gaming" according to partner site code update. Partners will need to sign an addendum to their terms. Could this be a competitor to @GoogleStadia? https://t.co/7AQ9YxCol8

      I don't know if people here are into twitch shooters, but one of the biggest Quake Champions tournaments of this year is happening now in Italy at Lucca Comics and Games.

      If you ever were into competitive Quake, this tournament has names that you might have heard before in the previous iterations: Rapha, Cooller, Toxjq but also new young players.

      Lots of games have special events or updates that change the game in some way for Halloween. Some of them are pretty impressive, so I wanted to make a thread where people could point out some of the best ones.

      Have you seen any interesting updates/events in the games you're playing/watching?

      Please make a separate top-level comment for each game/update so we can easily separate discussion about a particular game.

    8. Which games have great communities, and what do you like about them?

      As an outsider some gaming communities can appear incredibly toxic. I'm sure some of that is a deserved reputation, but I'm also aware that maybe there's a bit of generalisation going on, and that...

      As an outsider some gaming communities can appear incredibly toxic. I'm sure some of that is a deserved reputation, but I'm also aware that maybe there's a bit of generalisation going on, and that some communities are lovely but unrecognised.

      So I thought I'd ask Tildes: which gaming communities do you like? And why?

      (As always, feel free to interpret this question how you like. And, again, I suck at tagging so I'm grateful for any tagging edits. I do read those to try to learn.)

      Hello everyone,

      As I've previously mentionned in a previous comment, I'm getting back into PC gaming after 3 years with a simple laptop. I would be grateful if you could share some recommendations! Here are a few details that I think can help you:

      • Looking back, the genres I like the most are
        • City-building games (Cities Skylines, SimCity 4, ...Rimworld?)
        • Tactical shooters (Arma 3, Insurgency)
        • First-person role-playing shooters (STALKER, Fallout 4)
        • Atmospheric indie titles (INSIDE, Kentucky Route Zero, Night in the Woods, Oxenfree, What Remains of Edith Finch)
      • I don't tend to like competitive multiplayer games, I get easily frustrated about my lack of skill.
      • I'm mainly aiming to catch up with what I could have missed these last couple of years. But if you think there's an ""older"" title I'd like, tell me anyway.
      • I've already got my eyes on Control, Cyberpunk 2077, Outer Wilds and The Outer Worlds

      Phew! I hope I haven't reduced the list of candidates too much
