Tell me why you picked that genre over the others? How do the games in that genre make you feel?

I'll go first: Strategy.

I picked it at an early age and have been the very first game type that I could spend hours on. Nowadays they extend in RTS, Turn-Base Strategy and Grand Strategy games. The most that I enjoy of the series is TBS because it allows me to think through my decisions and through it I get to rip the rewards. To date XCOM may be the very first one that comes to mind, followed by Civilizations, but really, there are so many good Strategy games out there.

So what is yours? Use the wheel to determine if you are over the Conflict or Exploration side. 😁

A reason why I love Strategy games too, it just allows you to meditate and process things. Relaxing although conflictual. 👍🏻

It seems to be a theme of visual novels and point and clicks. When i look at new games I always use the search of Visual novel to get the newer ones released. When searching for games elsewhere like here, its more of point and clicks.

I have always been a big reader so it definitely helped when it came to visual novels. I've said many times that if I didn't find fruit of grisaia or princess evangile I probably wouldn't have stuck with steam. My main pc gaming was town of salem. There are so many different stories to get, plus its nice having a picture to go along with the story which you don't get from normal books unless its a kids book. Maybe I'm looking for a romance game, I'm not really gonna get that anywhere but visual novels. Maybe I want a bit of horror without the dread and creepiness of a real horror game, you can get a visual novel. Whatever the mood, I probably got it!

Visual Novels need to deliver on a compelling story because that's the only thing that makes them special. Visually they may stand out from other visual novels, but in reality, they don't bring anything else.

I get why you love them. It's like reading a good book and that's super important. I don't play many Visual Novels, but my wife loves them too. I can understand why.

Yeah alot of people prefer gameplay but for me its always about the story. Idc if its the best gameplay ever, if the story doesn't work then it fails in my book.

Although I became more interested on RPG games as I grew up, action games (especially single-player shooters) were always my favourite type of games, and still are to this day.

With that said, I pride myself in having a varied taste in games, and if you'll look at my games on my Steam profile, unlike what you usually see on most profiles (thousand of hours in a couple of games, and nearly no game time on anything else), I have at least a dozen hours on many games of every genre.

Still, there's something about action games, especially story-driven first person shooters, that just click with me. I think me not being the sharpest tool in the shed means I tend to better enjoy games that require reflex over brains.

Mind if you share with me one of the best Story-Driven FPS games you've ever played? I would really like to enrich my library and play some. Big fan of story-driven games myself as well and I pick a lot of the times games for that.

I will add you as well, if you don't mind. 😁

Far Cry 3 immediately comes to mind. I spent so many hours playing and completing it three times I think. I know you asked for FPS, but second place goes to Mafia II for being the best god damn story-driven shooter/action game. My god, such a beautifully written story, and a game to match.

Next up would probably be Bioshock Infinite, followed by the F.E.A.R. trilogy (but mostly 1 and 2, never finished 3 I think, it just wasn't as good). I played ton of Borderlands 2, but whether that's story-driven is strongly debatable - honestly, there's more XP/gear grind/looting than story, but I still loved it.

The more I write, the more older games I'm remembering - Metro 2033. Such a fantastic game that hasn't aged super well, but to me it still beats both Last Light and Exodus with how good, unique, and grimly beautiful the game was. From getting lost in a library while getting terrorized by an overpowered beast, to panicking on the surface as you realize you're on your last air filter... man. Such an unforgettable first experience.

Dishonored is not exactly a FPS, but it could be considered one - in any case, it was such a great stealth game, I loved playing through it. The unique and intriguing characters and world, every little story you discovered about everyone, and everything, as you played on... it really made you immerse yourself in the world and appreciate it for what it was.

The Darkness II was a unique and slightly strange experience. I feel it didn't do great because of the wildly unique style the developers went for, but I liked it for what it tried to be. While not the best story-wise, or even gameplay-wise, I think it did a good job at breaking away from the mold most FPSs are made of.

By now I'm rambling, but I have to mention the Battlefield games. Battlefield 3 was one of the earliest story-driven games I remember really enjoying (the single-player campaign), then Battlefield 4 was alright as well, and more recently, I loved the Battlefield 1 singleplayer campaign. I don't remember that much about the whole campaign, but the most memorable parts for me is how the writers finally seem to have eclipsed from the typical glorification of war, and instead showed war closer to what it was, and is.

I clearly remember the first "scene" in the campaign, you spawn in the middle of a battlefield. Around you, gunshots ring in your ears, there's screaming, bombs drop right next to you, and enemies run at you out of the fog of war. You have no fucking idea what's happening, you're panicking, you hit every key trying to evade them, and try to return fire, but you die.

You don't get a game over screen. You don't get to "restart". You are simply shown the name of who you were playing as, their date of birth, and date of death. Then you're moved to play as another soldier amongst the battlefield, and the same repeats, until the prologue ends. I personally felt it was an amazing way to start the game, reminding you that you aren't some hero super-soldier, that the truth is that in reality, the chances of surviving war, or even a single battle, was miraculous. You aren't a hero that battles through the entire campaign, ending by saving the world - you're just a soldier who was lucky enough to live through hell. And I think that was a pretty powerful moment to start the game with, and surpassed past Battlefield games in that way.

I've not yet got to Far Cry 3, just played Far Cry 1 and 2 about 3-4 months ago. I wanted to get the series from game to game to see the progression of the graphics and gameplay. To really experience the feeling of Far Cry evolution.

I loved Mafia II as well, I didn't get to play the remastered, but I've heard that it's not really working well so I didn't try it. I think it was the setting that really got me to be honest and it was a really well-made game. I liked it a lot too. The only competitive game with Mafia in my opinion was The Godfather, do you remember that game? Nobody seems to pursue that one. I remember loving to play it almost as much as Mafia.

Next up would probably be Bioshock Infinite, followed by the F.E.A.R. trilogy (but mostly 1 and 2, never finished 3 I think, it just wasn't as good). I played ton of Borderlands 2, but whether that's story-driven is strongly debatable - honestly, there's more XP/gear grind/looting than story, but I still loved it.

Another series I've got, but didn't play and I want to. I am completely aware of how good the games are and I want to play them. I've only played Borderlands 1, but I honestly didn't get really engaged in the first try and my wife and I dropped it. Maybe we didn't click with it the way we wanted it and I'm sad because I really wanted to enjoy a good COOP with her.

Such an unforgettable first experience.

I've played the Metro 2033 Redux along with the rest of it. Truly it was something else. I didn't wanted to pick the Metro series when it was out because I wasn't looking to play FPS that have horror elements. When Exodus was announced, I hopped on the other 2 and enjoyed it. I've finished them during the pandemic in September 2020. Good stuff!

The unique and intriguing characters and world, every little story you discovered about everyone, and everything, as you played on... it really made you immerse yourself in the world and appreciate it for what it was.

Did not play it yet, I will do it. I have missed a lot of games because of my League of Legends addiction. I have a lot of games to catch up.

While not the best story-wise, or even gameplay-wise, I think it did a good job at breaking away from the mold most FPSs are made of.

I remember playing this game, it was hell-a-fun and I really enjoyed being this sort of bad guy that was seeking revenge. Although it was easily forgotten by many, I thought it was pretty good.

Battlefield 3 was one of the earliest story-driven games I remember really enjoying (the single-player campaign), then Battlefield 4 was alright as well, and more recently, I loved the Battlefield 1 singleplayer campaign. I don't remember that much about the whole campaign, but the most memorable parts for me is how the writers finally seem to have eclipsed from the typical glorification of war, and instead showed war closer to what it was, and is.

Didn't play them, but bought them for £5 Battlefield 4, Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 5. I think it's a hell of a price for 3 massive games. Does Battlefield 2 have any story? It's confusing with the names really, IDK what comes first and how should I play them. Should I play them by the release date?

I wish Call of Duty was offering prices like that so I can reply to the older campaigns from the series. They are overpriced all the time even with a discount. It sounds like an amazing experience and I can see the passion you have for the series.

CoD games are wayyyy overpriced. You still pay full price for 20 years old games. I played them (mostly Modern Warfare) as some of them were given to me, the others I... acquired through other means. The campaigns are alright, they are pretty fun.

Battlefield games aren't like the Modern Warfare games where the campaign continues with each game - every Battlefield game I've played so far has their own individual campaigns unrelated to each other, so you can play any you want in whatever order you want without problem. I never played BF2 so not sure about that one. As for BF1, it was released after BF4 (bear with me here, this is like if Microsoft was in charge of numbering the series). :D

Really big fan of Hack'n'slash game, always have the sensation of progress, get new loot, become more stronger, discover new lands and foes, and progress again ...
The best hack'n'slash for me are : Diablo III (my first true hack'n'slash in PS3), Path Of Exile (best free hack'n'slash for me in PC), Grim Dawn, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut and Torchlight I and II (Classic but good one), Vikings - Wolves of Midgard (Mainly for the replay value)

Also big fan on Futurist racing game, for the arcade gameplay and all the differents atmospheres
The best of them for me : Ballistic NG and Distance (Masterpice with the steamworkshop)

And 3D Plateform game, that my chillhood (Ratchet and Clank, Sly Cooper and Jak and Daxter), but there are quite rare in PC (Play and finish Effie, Yooka-Laylee and Spark the Electric Jester 1 and 2 recently, hyped by the announcement and demo of Spark the Electric Jester 3)

Thank you for recommending so many amazing games. I've played Diablo 3 and finished the main campaign. It was really nice. I just need to finish the DLC one too. I wanted to play in the past Path of Exile, but never did. It's still strong and going even today.

Also see that Tap Wizard 2 is actually in early access so will try it soon :)
Also liked Ninja Prime: Tap Quest, That quite similar to Tap Wizard but without any prestige system, i have actually stop it because quite repetive, but have a cloud system so sometimes come back into it.

While I do enjoy RPGs (especially turn-based ones), adventure games have been my favourite genre since 1997 - and I mean everything from hardcore puzzlers (I've got complicated relationship with those, but still) to walking sims, but especially classic point-and-click with inventory-based puzzles and rich narrative, of course (so, for instance, a new Wadjet Eye release feels like a holiday to me). I barely play anything anything aside from adventure games and RPGs, but I don't mind relaxing casual simulators like House Flipper as well.

A good story gets me all the time. The most recent one that had a huge impact on my overall gaming experience is A Plague Tale: Innocence. Has stealth elements in it, but the story hits well with me.

Grand strategy when I have lots of free time, cause I like numbers and stuffs.
Action adventure when I have less time and too much stress to focus on anything complicated.

Moba/fps when I want to play online with friends or communicate with strangers (the result of covid lockdown).

I like to do a mix of genres too.

I generally relax in strategy and sim games and when I'm looking for a rich story or exploration I go for Action-Adventure Games, FPS or RPG.

In fact, RPG is quite in the middle, sometimes I don't feel well involved in the story so I'd rather place it in the relaxation part, where things are slower and more meticulous.

I don't play much online nowadays, I'm avoiding it because it can rob me from fully enjoying other games as well. I am a one-dimensional player, I like to play 1 max 2 games at once, otherwise, I lose my focus and my immersion in the games.

Yes it feels so good to play, and with each update they are making it even better. I have had to make myself wait and not play like a thousand hours so that I still want to keep going when the full game releases. They have a lot of transparency with Coffee Stain Studios putting out weekly videos to the community, check those out on youtube if you want to see the progress of the game.
I can fully recommend the game if you are into factory builders.

Why? It's hard to stay away because it's so good - and I'd rather wait for the final polished release before investing more time in it. I'm failing at staying away because I'm already at 300+ hours :)

Same happened to me for Subnautica - sunk many hours before the game was finally released, that I'd kind of seen enough of it before 1.0 and did not feel like going through the whole grind again.

I think that's amazing for a Early Access game. The same happened to me with Bannerlords. Although a lot of things are lacking, I've got easily made 85h in the game and I didn't even finish one scenario once. The game can last for eternity. I love it, but I have to wait more until I can finally feel I finish it.

One Grand Strategy (Europa Universalis 4) is my most played game, if i dont count an idle game as 95%+ of that playtime just idle.
City builders, Strategy(with the exception of RTS), Adventure-Story Rich games, Puzzle and Horror + Walking Sims i play most of the time, also some RPG.
What i nearly never play (instantly ignoring when i see one on steam store, no matter of quality): platformers(puzzle platformers are exceptions in some cases), soullikes, MP shooter games, JRPG with their 500 day 1 DLCs, Battle Royale, racing games, sidescrollers, top-down shooters, beat'em up and ofc low quality shovelwares.

I can't give you any reason, I play those because I having fun with them and I don't play the others because when I played some then I felt so, that even cutting my veins would be a better idea than keep playing those games:-)

I'm all about Multiplayer Shooters. I literally grew up playing them and still only play them. I got my first PC when I was 5 and my dad let me play Unreal Tournament with him. Then he showed me Quake 3 Arena and when I was 7-8 one of his friends showed us BF1942 which was what we ended up playing for LAN games at my dad's friend's house. That will probably always be my favorite gaming memories. We'd end up with like 20 of us in his little Ranch style house and sometimes we would have to set up some of our PCs in random spots because there wasn't enough spaces in the 2 bedrooms or the basement lmao. I loved those times, and I really miss them.

Production line games like Factorio and Dyson Sphere Program are my jam at the moment with a (un)healthy dose of ant farm games like Oxygen Not Included. They sadly don't leave much time for anything else currently.

When I was younger RPG's and TBS games were the thing that got me out of bed, but I've slowly drifted away from them as I get older.

Survival games (preferably single player). Prefer the slower paced, creative side of them - with the odd bit of action when hunting or fending off enemies.

Since you mentioned Medieval Dynasty. I am trying to get into it. I know I need a few hours to get absorbed in the game, just at this point, I'm hungry for a story-driven experience. It's what makes me play games. Survival games are very sandboxy and I love that about them when you play with others. You can't do it in MD, right?

No MP or Co-op in MD. There is pressure from some players that continually ask for it. Their response has been fairly consistent since launch - not promising it, and not ruling it out at this stage. I think the game has been a commercial success, so I won't be too surprised if it comes eventually. The priority is SP at the moment - and there is an active roadmap with a few more things coming early next year. MD does have a story behind it - with a few trivial side quests, along with longer stories for a few NPCs. Nothing as deep as say Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Emphasis is more on growing your initial campfire all the way up to a thriving city and managing the inhabitants.

You've opened a few topics as of late! Is there a reason to it? Not complaining, just curious.

To answer your question, according to my stats I play action and adventure game the most (suspecting my long hours of Skyrim to be the main culprit behind this). But I dont always have the mood for action games. They are intense experiences, and as such, require a level of highly responsive attention I dont always wish to force upon myself.

Adventures games however, especially the oldschool point-and-click kind, are evergreen to me and I am always interested to see how new releases hold up

RPGs are a close second. Its simply fun and entertaining to place yourself in a given universe and see how you'd do with your personalized decisions/abilities/attitudes/approaches.

Other than that, I play almost every genre and from time to time I get in the mood to play them a little.
You mentioned RTS games. I am affraid they are far beyond their golden age. While I loved them back when Starcraft, Warcraft 3, Homeworld, Supreme Commander and the like were at the top of their category (I still revisit these gems from time to time), new strategies can rarely ever pull me in. There are considerably less of course, but I'd argue that they are also less appealing to me. The latest exception was the new XCOM series (while i am aware they are not "real time", quality strategy games are so rare nowadays that I use the rts term to include all kinds of strategy). Maybe my tastes also changed, but I honestly think thats just the minor part of it. I've yet to try Deserts of Kharak though as I absolutely adored the Homewrold series. Did you play this one? If so how was your experience with it?

My most favorite is 4x.
I have been playing since early age, after reading Foundation series i was always looking for a game that let me play in that scope of hundreds of years leading a galactic empire/civilization, my first 4x was Space Empires 2, i love/hate that game, i always teared my hair because the AI outsmart me with their ships design xD

I also love RPG, Tactical Turn Based (FFT) and Survival games, but not in the same level of passion like 4x xD I can say with a little shame i play 2-3 hours daily of Stellaris, Space Empires V or Sword of the Stars 2 xD

Originally the first 4x was based on space, but later started to appear 4x with a small scope like Civilization. I like Civilization games, but there is something about exploring the galaxy that will always make me happy and excited.
Now that i think more thoroughly, i really love games with space theme about exploration, except No Man Sky xD

I think humans have always been fascinated about space. I also am intrigued because there's so little things we know what's out there and that allows us to create amazing worlds that we can explore.

I've heard that Outer Wilds is an excellent game that you should play if you haven't. 🙂

Already played, but got annoyed with the spaceship mechanics and the low fps (i have an almost retired veteran potato pc), so i will try it again in a future when i have a better pc. Meanwhile i find some nice oldie to play again xD

I can't imagine going back now, but I do recall being a mod that was expanding the whole aspect of the game a couple of years after I quit playing it. I was happy to hear that. I'm surprised there are still people playing the game after so many years.

Woah! That's awesome! 🙂 I can't recall how much I've played, but it was quite a lot. Can you imagine that I used to play that kind of game for months on end? Maybe an year back in the days. After that, I started developing a soft touch towards Fantasy and not so much to Sci-Fi games? I didn't wanted to give Mass Effect a chance because of that principle. It was weird. But once I tried it, I finally loving the genre once more.

I know that feeling, thats why i try to ignore game reviews and try to play it, sometimes i get surprised. Just like Risk of Rain, in those times i hated roguelike games because i played a couple that were just repeat ad infinitum withouth nothing else in the formula, but darn, RoR was so crazy fun, i started to love the genre after that game D:

I did look at ROR, but I personally haven't been intrigued by it, yet so many people love and appreciate it. I may give it a go at some point, if the game is not heavy on Online things and the servers don't start to feel outdated or something.

If you give it a try prepare to die a lot a couple of times before you learn the ropes and mechanics of the characters/classes.
In RoR the only online feature is the multiplayer, fun if you can find a good group. The community is also nice and some players tend to be a little bit competitive.

P.D: Huntress FTW! D:

Not PVP, is PVE, RoR multiplayer is co-op xD

My main dish is a good ARPG, Grim Dawn being my favorite....

....However!!! I played through Muv-Luv and (more importantly) Muv-Luv Alternative this year and now my identity as a gamer is completely in ruin. It was by far my most memorable digital experience since starting on a Commodore 64.

In reply to OP, the very first game I became addicted to was Master of Magic and I've also been partial to strategy and 4X games ever since.

Master of Magic feels and looks a lot like Might & Magic, was it the founder of the series?

No those are separate franchises, but it did spawn Master of Orion which was similar but set in space vs high fantasy. Might & Magic is good too, I've played a ton of Heroes of Might & Magic 1-3 and will still start a new game every year or so.

Don't think I would go back now. I wanted to play a couple of years back, but the 6th and 7th are graphically nice, but lack content as I've heard. Not the same anymore.
