Rise of Nations you say? I shall investigate. Thank you.

Update: While not exactly what I was looking for (but close I think, what with the bonus cards and stuff) it's still loads of fun. Thanks for the recommendation LuNatic.

I guess what I'm looking for is SimCity, but with the ability to attack, invade and ally with other cities. Oh well, maybe I'll have to put my game design degree to good use and just make it, haha.

You might, maybe, not really want to play an old game called Metal Marines. Either the SNES or PC vesion. You build a, uh, base. And then guys attack you, and you attack them.

Recommendations for a terrifying game?

Postby Rippy » Thu Apr 02, 2009 9:50 pm UTC

I've decided to get a game that will make me crap my pants. But I can't decide what game to buy, so I'm asking for some suggestions. What's your favourite horror game?

I've considered Doom 3, Dead Space and FEAR, but I'm not adverse to zombie games either.

Bioshock isn't like crap-your-pants scary, but it's pretty creepy, and generally a very good fps game, certainly one of the best I've played recently.

Not exactly a new game, and takes some wrangling to get to work right on your computer, but System Shock 2 is definitely the scariest game I've ever played.
All is well. We are not like the others.

This. You will be so scared you will not sleep for months. On a more serious note, I have played Silent Hill 3 a grand total of 3 hours and I own the game. Also, while not terrifying, L4D does a good job of being surprising, specifically on Advanced (Expert is too pathological for you to enjoy playing it).

The goal-

*Runs on my Laptop (Integrated Video Card, 2 gigs RAM, I can run EVE and The Sims 2, among other things)
*Fairly small install, as I'm low on memory
*A deep, fun RTS that will act as a time suck. I really want to focus on building an economy and structure, but without as much war as Rise of Nations, and without as much fiddling as Simcity.

Any helpers? Also, hi, I'm Jayson, and this is my first post.

If it will run EVE and The Sims 2, presumably it will run DOSBox more than adequately, which opens up no end of possibilities.

..none of which meet the Real-Time requirement.

*cries*

Anyway....
Empire Earth or something in the Settlers/Serf City line may be what you're wanting. Might even want to look in to Majesty.

The more I think about it... Settlers/Serf City. Getting the economy rolling in that game is... basically the game.

I'm looking for a sports game, for any Nintendo platform (or even PC), that has a good create-a-player/create-a-team features. One of my favorite things to do is create versions of my favorite characters from TV shows, books, etc., or even myself and my friends, and then absolutely dominate the computer using a team made with those players.

I've ordered a copy of NHL Hitz 2003 from Amazon.com, since so far that's my favorite game with create-a-player capability (I rented it several times as a kid), but I would like something else to play while waiting for it to arrive. In addition to that, I also own NBA Street V3 but since mom only allowed me to take a few Gamecube games with me to college (but all of my Wii games) it's at home.

I've kinda been looking into some of the newer Backyard Sports titles (even if they are easy and geared towards children) but I dunno how good the customization features are.

I've only played the demo of FEAR 2, but it was pretty damn scary. There's still a free demo on steam.

I want some sort of fairly time consuming PC game. Preferably action-y as I'm currently playing a few JRPGs. I'm about minmaxed out.
Pretty much the key requirement is a great story. I've played all the Valve games 10x over. Played Crysis series, Farcry 1/2, TES, NWN, etc etc. Mostly the mainstream games from the last year or so but if I haven't explicitly named something, please advise.

My computer can run pretty much anything at a good speed. So that's not an issue. If it has weird Win7 issues I'll boot into XP.

Out of those three I'd say you should go with Dead Space.




Also, I'm looking for a good platform game for a PC/ PS3.

I just started playing Mass Effect, and I can't stop. It's just that damn good. Sims 2 is also pretty good, I got a version with the NightLife expansion, so I've been experimenting with turning my Sim into a vampire. Not having your Sim age is nice, having them burn in the sun trying to get to work not so nice.

I also like cheap free little crap flash games that burn up class time. This is my new mini hobby: http://andoranadun.mybrute.com
Sure you only get three turns a day, but something about watching my lil brute beat the crap out of others is rather satisfying.

Braid mixes up the genre a little.

Edit: Although the site front page doesn't reflect it, it is available on steam now.

Request: I'm looking for an RPG without a class system that's easy to get into, but has hidden depth. Multi-level dungeons with hidden goodies and progressively tougher monsters would be nice. It can be old and even ascii graphics, but has be able to run under WinXP. Preferably turn based.

My first instinct is to recommend a slew of roguelikes. Most of them use class systems, but there are a few that don't, and a lot where it's not a hard class system (You can level whatever skills you like, classes just offer better rates for some skills and a few perks/starting items.) Off the top of my head, I don't think IVAN uses classes at all. It's pretty evil though, since it's difficulty scales with your character, so you're never ahead of the curve. PC RPG games without classes are exceedingly rare though. There's Fallout and Fallout 2, but that has nothing to do with multi-level dungeons or even a fantasy setting. I'd recommend Daggerfall but thats a pain to run on ANYTHING, even after 40 glitch fixing patches and mods and I find the graphics to be an eyesore. (And I LIKE ascii.) Morrowind might be worth a shot; I recommend using one of the leveling mods though, because the way it allocates stats as you gain xp is retarded by default. There's a billion mods for it too, if you're into crafting or shiny outfits or extra stories or whatever, there's probably something out there for you.

It mostly sounds like you want a jRPG running under windows though, which would be better asked as 'has to run under windows XP, or on the SNES, Genesis, Saturn or PSX. I liked Lufia 2 for the SNES quite a bit myself. The later difficulty is largely of the 'save or die' variety though. All the IP spells in the equipment you find makes hunting for the goodies and trying stuff out quite fun though. Azure Dreams for the PSX might also tickle your fancy; you trek into a tower to gather loot and monster eggs, which you bring back in with you and level up, because YOU always start at level one again, but your pets and gear stay with you. Unless you die, then your gear vanishes forever. Also includes a pseudo dating sim thing.

American McGee's Alice. It's an old game (I think it's based off the Quake 3 engine?), but it's actiony and a really fun twist on the Wonderland theme.

I'm looking for a first person shooter PC game. I want one that's got great gameplay rather than great graphics (I have a relatively old computer and my graphics card is a RADEON 9250 so it can't handle the newest games with the best graphics). If it's helpful, my graphics card can handle Half-Life2 episode 1 and 2. I've played Deus Ex (and a bunch of it's mods) and Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines and I would like to play other games that are similar. I would like high replay value. I'm stuck on dial up, so multiplayer is out of the question. Price range: I don't generally buy any games over $35 (DAMN YOU TIMESHIFT! I've learnt my lesson about reading packaging carefully and not buying expensive games that probably won't work).

System Shock series. Though you'll probably dig 2 over 1, due to the graphical upgradedness and the mouselook action.

And if you pretend the nanobot upgrades are genetic enhancements, you can pretend you're playing Bioshock.

Ok, I'm looking for a building game. Something like Settlers or the Anno series, but without the fighting. Somehow it always feels tacked on and I don't enjoy it very much. If I want to play an RTS, I'll play a C&C game.

I tried System Shock 2 once. My sister's xboyfriend* gave it to me with a bunch of other games on a disk. I unziped it, it didn't work. I went through all the folders and found another archive file thing and unzipped that too. It worked. I clicked "new game" and then it asked me the difficulty and I went "normal/medium" and the screen went black. It exited to desktop and said "an error has occurred". I never got the game to go.

Are there any other first person shooters like it? If not, are there any first person shooters** like HL2, that could run on my computer? (Nothing more graphically awesome looking because my graphics card can barely handle HL2 episode 2).

*Even if you can tell me how to fix it, I can't get it anymore because they broke up and I deleted the files because they annoyed me because they didn't work.
*I can't stand third person shooters. They annoy me so much. I don't know why, they just feel unnatural.

System Shock 2 is indeed a rather prickly thing to get running on XP on a current computer, though it can be done.

Perhaps you might be interested in the first System Shock? Google "System Shock Portable" if you want something that will run with an absolute minimum of fuss.

I tried playing Far Cry again ...
Spoiler:
The mutant monkey things scare the shit out of me way to much. Especially in the bunker.
It's a good game, I just can't stand them. If it was something a little easier to kill, I would be able to get passed them without having to leave the computer every twenty minutes or so because I feel like I'm about to die a horrible, painful death.

Are there any other Deus Ex like games out there? Or maybe something a little more like Half Life 2?

I'd like some sort of strategy game. I rather enjoy playing Civ (currently Civ IV + expansions) until I remember it's so repetitive and either too easy or, at higher difficulty levels, too hard and requires micro management, which doesn't interest me at all. I'm contemplating installing Heroes III again but I played it so many times I'd like to try something new. Doesn't have to be recently released, but something I didn't play before.

My computer is relatively capable (GeForce 8800GT, 2GB RAM and more stuff, running XP).

Huh, I was just going to ask for something like what Zohar requested. I love the strategy/building/4X genres and want to play something like Heroes of Might and Magic or Lords of the Realm 2 (combine the economic/campaign map of that with the battle engine of the Total War series and I'm there).

Sins of a Solar Empire is quite fun, but I'm looking for something new. Turn-based and not sci-fi would be nice but it's not required.

edit: You know, I just realized that there's a lot of people on this page asking for pretty much the same type of game. Developers, take that as a hint.

I recommend Pharaoh with addon cleopatra. Old but good. There are armies, but on most scenarios you simply dont need them or cant even build them.

erm.. you mean shooter+rpg? i would recommend Mass Effect, but its bugged, has high requirements and these consolish clonism in side quests... On the other hand the story is very nice and worth some of the suffering the game brings into your life.
also: BioShock, but since I barely played that i can't say much.

I rather enjoy playing Civ (currently Civ IV + expansions) until I remember it's so repetitive and either too easy or, at higher difficulty levels, too hard and requires micro management, which doesn't interest me at all. I'm contemplating installing Heroes III again but I played it so many times I'd like to try something new. Doesn't have to be recently released, but something I didn't play before.

My computer is relatively capable (GeForce 8800GT, 2GB RAM and more stuff, running XP).

I understand you are talking about turn based strategy, so such thing like Warhammer 40K: DOW is out of question, so try Age Of Wonders - pretty much like Heroes Of the Might & Magic , but since it is not the same HOM&M over and over, it's worth giving a try.

However, if you want to try some good not-so-old RTS, I recommend Original War. It's actually RTS+RPG game, with complex story line. It's also full of timetravel paradoxes and nonlinear in some extend, as there are not only different endings, but also impact on the story from the way you play, especially because characters in the game are not expendable - each has a name and a place in the story (no stinking hordes of nameless soldiers).

I'm looking for a sandbox style space-sim (Think Freelancer) that can be played multiplayer.
