Users ๐Ÿ‘ฅ Requests ๐Ÿ“
#1 kodonokami open world and survival, if possible zombie survival, as well as the game Project Zomboid or 7 Day to Die are games that I spend a lot of time playing =)
#2 xxxka I am simple person. I like rpg with open world, singleplayer.
#3 wigglenose Visual novels are what I would like to know
#4.1 #4.2 ExcelElmira difficult puzzle games, like Baba is You or Patrick's Parabox. I like it when the game is quick to load and has many small levels, so that I can boot it up and beat a level or two in a couple of minutes and close it again. casual 2D platformers. I'm looking for something bright and colorful, like Super Mario. I don't want the platforming to be too difficult and again I want there to be levels (so no Metroidvanias with one huge level).
#5 Lunaedge shmups. Preferably traditional ones, not bullet hells. Any platforms. Some games I really like are Ikaruga, Zeroranger, Star Fox 64, Sin & Punishment 2 and Alltynex Second. No magical flying girls, either. I'm allergic to those.
#6 Mitsukuni I like strategy, building, isometric (3D is also fine), resource management. Trains and ships are optional, would be nice.
#7 Chiasm I want a game where you can pet Bill Gates like a cat. And occasionally he will cough up a hairball, and if you click on it your PC will get a Windows update.
#8 patch22 I love deep character development mechanics รก la Diablo or Skyrim. Games focused on exploration are always a huge plus, as are immersive sim aspects that let me solve a problem in my own way. What I most dislike in games are big cinematics and character moments that take me out of the action ... I'm here for the gameplay most of all. Open to any genre, but I much prefer action over turn based :)
#9 Lexbya I personally enjoy inmersive games with interesting and weird exotic worlds to both explore and inmerse myself in. Such as Outer Wilds, Metro Saga, Dishonored or even Hob. I also have been craving survival games with mobile bases such as Subnautica with the cyclops, Forever Skies with it's airship or Volcanoids with the drill. I also I'm in love with games where you explore abandoned places such as Infra and also Metro. But there's not that much out there.
#10 aquatorrent Action adventure (zelda like) Blossom tales
#11 evertonj I'm desperately searching another game like Sable. I just want to explore the world and go on a journey without the map marking exactly where I have to go and I don't want to fight anyone along the way
#12 Zero224 I love rich-story games with puzzles or some kind of gameplay (not 100% visual novel), I can try different genres, although I'm not a big fan of shooters. Also, I am attracted to games that have a animated aspect (anime or cartoon), but it is not mandatory. I love Ace Attorney Saga, Professor Layton Saga, Zero Escape Saga, The World Ends With You, Time Hollow, Ghost Trick, Stella Glow. I haven't played these games yet but I know I'm going to love them haha: Danganronpa, Detroit Become Human, Telling Lies. I also feel immediately drawn to games that are "different", bizarre/absurd/funny, for example: Project Rub, Hatoful Boyfriend, Wario Touched, Aviary Attorney, Her Story, Dominique Pamplemousse, The Stanley Parable, Flower, Sun, and Rain, Do Not Feed the Monkeys, Murder House
#13 Swordoffury I like Rpgs(preferably isometric), BUT NOT alike Larian's games (yes, even Baldur's gate 3, sorry guys) I don't like steath or infiltration ,nor when there is too much action (i'm not a huge fan of ARPGs, with some exceptions) I like when it's story driven, and if i can give an example, the two games that fit the most the genre are pathfinder games: Kingmaker and wrath of the Righteous. I also liked the first 2 mass effect and the first 2 dragon age, mostly because of the narrative and epicness
#14 justachild8 1st Theme: I am a programmer but I suck at thinking (I am a feeler), I want to improve it and want some less violent strategy games (preferable beautiful, artistic looking but not cozy) and have great replay value. Games I love are Stellaris, Endless Space 2, Civ 6, all paradox games. 2nd Theme: I want beautiful looking games that I don't own on steam (Any kind of games but preferably non FPS and non violent games) 3rd Theme: Story rich games that are must to expereince. Preferably long story games. I also love text story games like Choice of Games and Hosted Games.
#15 Quinn777 I would like games similar to Kingdom Hearts, whether it be in terms of story, gameplay, or preferably both besides: Final Fantasy series; The World Ends With You series; Metal Gear Solid series; and Chrono Trigger series. It's not because I don't like those games. Those games are great. But I am already familiar with them.
#16 Bydydyndi I want huge open world immersive sims with different countries, cities and live economics simulation like Kenshi. Preferably with: fantasy; magick; coop; and random generated worlds. I know about Caves of Cud, LonaRPG, Light No Fire, Project Zomboid, Adventure mod for DF, Crimson Desert, Soulash, Soulash 2, Elona RPG
#17 akwilla I need a single player game, with a clear story and progression, in which you have safe base, which you upgrading and which is giving you boosts, so your character is stronger. You are going outside and finding resources to upgrade your base until you are strong enough to beat the whole game. BUT I don't want survival elements - no food meter etc, your base is basically your level up system. It can be a rougelike, if it is really focusing on metagaming - in most roguelikes there is only little progression between sessions. The best game I know of this kind is Rogue Legacy. Wall World was also very good example, although it was a bit too short and easy.
#18 caesar239 1-Brick Breaker games that have nice music and art. 2-Good free short games (not necessarily on steam) that have been released for PC in the last few years. Lure and 20 Small Mazes for reference.
#19 Aerctaure Turn-based RPGs and strategy games as well as visually appealing roguelikes and metroidvanias are very appealing to me, preferably something keyboard friendly. I already have Dark Deity, Hades, Carrion, Steambot series, Cthulhu games, and Book of Demons. I also appreciate some text-based adventure games and trading sims.
#20 gloegugk Cozy sim like Stardew Valley, Dinkum, and Animal Crossing. Have tried My Time at Portia and take a look on Sun Haven and Spirittea, but didnโ€™t find it enjoyable. Also have tried Little Witch in the Woods, kind of like it but I think still missing something. I kinda like the point that you can gather your allies and just free to walk wherever you like with those companions. It can be tactical RPG like Final Fantasy Tactics, Tactics Ogre, and Shin Megami Tensei. Also can be something like Mount and Blade. I have tried Wartales but did not enjoy it. Currently looking at a chance to play Battle Brothers and Sands of Salzaar. Would prefer turn based but open to anything. I also like Pokemon Mystery Dungeon and looking to play Shiren the Wanderer. Simple action RPG that not focusing on story. One of the example that I like is Shining Soul series on GBA, where I can play without thinking so hard.
#21 PunishedStig A quality or two (C)RPG to play after Baldur's Gale 3 that isn't made by Larian? Did Persona 5 and Disco Elysium, loved them. Gave Witcher 3 a crack too, and it hasn't clicked with me yet. I'd also much prefer it if it's controller/Steam Deck friendly. :P Open to all kinds of gameplay style, it can be turn-based, a deckbuilding game, anything.
#22 BubbyBobble I love adventure games with a bit of exploration, but hate massive open worlds with little to nothing besides padding. I adore Tomb Raider, and like what I've played of Yakuza 0 so far. I also enjoy the tense atmosphere of Dark Souls mixed with its often interesting environments. Point & click is appreciated, too. I'm fine with any input method besides VR, because I don't have that. I do, however, have a Steam Deck.
#23 Raggart 1) Deckbuilding roguelike games: I loved Slay the Spire, Monster Train, etc. It seems though that all new games coming out are clones of StS or another highly successful game. I have tried many games using cards, but nothing was as addictive as StS. 2) Strategy map-painting games: since stopping Europa Universalis IV, I have not found anything that can scratch that itch in a satisfying way. I've played a few others, but nothing has the depth of EU4, with empire-building without micromanagement as well as strategic wars and conquests. 3) Emotional character-based games: I'm thinking mainly of Spiritfarer here.
#24 arilla First of all, I am interested in online co-op puzzles and escape rooms. An ideal example is Escape Memoirs series and Islands of insight. Secondly, I'm looking for good RPGs with normal co-op, for example Larian's games, Solasta, Wildermyth. The third priority online co-ops are everything else, for example PlateUp, Overcooked, Hellcard, Mars First Logistics. It would also be interesting to play a visual novel, but I've only seen one with co-op, Antioch: Scarlet Bay. Something cozy, casual, with a โ€œcleaningโ€ of the location. Hero of the Kingdom as an example. The player finds himself in a location. He looks for certain objects there, for example, he knows how to pick mushrooms. After he has collected enough mushrooms, he is taught how to collect eggs, he goes and collects eggs in the same location. The idea is that the player methodically collects everything they can get their hands on, "clearing" the location of all pick-up items, unlocking more and more items to pick up over time. Another example is I Am Future, the player comes to his senses on a roof littered with garbage and methodically picks up this garbage, processing it into resources. From resources, the player crafts more effective tools in order to collect the garbage that he could not before, in order to collect everything and stay on a clean roof. Games in which the player is engaged in a detective investigation. Not pretending to be a detective, but actually looking at the evidence and trying to understand what happened. I really enjoyed Scene Investigators. Return of the Obra Dinn and The Case of the Golden Idol are also good.
#25 Fnord An RTS with indirect unit control, akin to Dungeon Keeper, Majesty the Fantasy Kingdom Sim or War for the Overworld, where your units improve over time (so not Populous or Reprisal)
#26 YummyCore co-op / multiplayer (a way out, grounded) shooting or some skill based mechanic. i want the game to be mouse and keyboard, no card games or turn based games. smalland, raft (plan to play), valheim
#27 JMM72 I love racing games, tho I'm pretty bad at them. Thus, I love simulators like Assetto Corsa (and Competizione) and Automobilista 1 & 2, but I end enjoying more the arcade approaches like NFS series. Forza Horizon 4 & 5 seem to have simulator genes but I end finding them more arcadey than anything. Driving in itself is also great, I enjoy American Truck Simulator and Eurotruck Simulator. I also love Le Mans. I have some of the official F1 series but the last F1 game I played is F1 Grand Prix from Microprose (1993?) I also have some of the Dirt Rally games, and I enjoy general old-school top-view track racing or TPP classics that can run well in modern systems. I don't like drifting, because I'm absolutely bad at it. I can control a drift in a curve but that's pretty much it. I also enjoy a lot puzzle games, specially original & different ones.
#28 ChrisKutcher Maybe someone has some good suggestions for me. I like 1st or 3rd person exploration, shooter games. So obviously that already covers Fallout, Skyrim, Witcher, GTA series, Just Cause, Saints Row to name a few. The cherry on top for me though is if its some sort of dystopian future or post-apocalyptic setting. I finally got to playing Portal 1 and 2.. And love it. I also have played Stalker and Metro, but overall cant handle horror that well. Although I did finish Metro Exodus. I don't care for really complicated games, slash em up and that sort of games. Souls like neither. It can be puzzle, shooter, Witcher like combat. I mean I probably have played many from the genre already and I couldnt list all of them.. I am not much for anime, pixel graphics, side scrollers.. I try them out of course and finish some if I like them. But not going to be first choice for me,.
#29 doodlehasdoodles I like platformers (both 2d and 3d), metroidvanias, story-based, RPG, cozy, point-and-click, puzzle, adventure, sandbox and cartoony/cute/pixel art style games, but I am fine with any genre close to the games I like honestly. I honestly like games that are unique in gameplay and style. Games I like Stardew Valley, Pizza Tower, Hollow Night, Hypnospace Outlaw, Spiritfarer, Terraria, Later Alligator, Pikuniku, Undertale, and Bug Fables. I don't like tactical based games or architecture building games much.
#30 Romaki96 recommend me unknown indie gems? I'm always on the lookout. I liked Do Not Feed The Monkeys, Alt-Frequencies, Slay the Princess, Gunpoint, Dead in Bermuda, Katana ZERO, American Arcadia, Monster Prom, A Short Hike, Tacoma, Beholder, Mainlining, Lost Phone, Contradiction, Edith Finch, Glass Masquerade, Party Hard, The Invisible Hours, Before Your Eyes, Twelve Minutes, Night in the Woods, Oxenfree, Slay the Spire. I'm not really looking for a "cozy game" or a deckbuilding game. I want a more unique experience. Achievements are also important to me. I'm mostly looking for indie games I've missed in the last 5 years that barely got any attention. Bonus points if it's under 5 hours.
#31 taytothief I like single player city builders and strategy games. Not specifically single player I guess. I used to spend days on Civ 4 and a mod called Realism Invictus. Used to enjoy playing it online too, but I was always one of the first to die.
#32 Ginohax Racing arcade. I would like to play a racing game with these elements: Fuel or something similar,rankings with various divisions to climb. Similar games that I loved were: Stunt Gp, Rock N' Roll Racing, Destruction Derby 2. No F1
#33 antidaz I like RPG's. I also like RTS. I also like TBS. I really REALLY like games where you have a party and build up a base or something. Some of my favorite games: Suikoden series, Pathfinder Kingmaker, Fallout New Vegas, State of Decay 2, X-Com games(old and new)
#34 CommissarCiaphasCain So I'll first and foremost recommend my all time favorite game : Freedom fighter to everyone who loves third person shooters where you can command your troops and love to fight guerilla style :). I'm pretty sure there are few games likes(Brother in arms series comes to mind), but in the off chance I might have missed them, I'm happy to hear suggestions about this kind of games. And if not those, any ww2 shooters or strategy games are welcomed.
#35 alenguren I mostly prefer single-player experiences since I don't have a lot of time for MMORPGs or Free-to-Play games like Final Fantasy XIV, Genshin Impact, World of Warcraft, and Elder Scrolls Online. Here are the sagas I've played and loved, listed in order of preference: Final Fantasy saga, Castlevania saga, Legacy of Kain saga, Devil May Cry (DMC) saga, Tekken saga, Need for Speed (NFS) saga, Borderlands saga, Metal Gear saga
[#36]() Bydydyndi Now I'm looking the clones of old mobile game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gauqubiAVQ. At least some fantasy game with similar "tracing" gameplay mechanics. Preferable on steam. But android would be also ok
[#37]() Agaster Looking for single player driving games. Driving/racing game with police chases. No or minimal on foot gameplay. Like: NFS, Driver series. The Crew is the only other game with police chases. Car combat with guns or without Like: Interstate '76, Hard Truck Apocalypse, Redline, Carmageddon. FUMES is something I am looking forward to.

Survivalist and Survivalist: Invisible Strain: I really like this one, especially Invisible Strain

SurrounDead: it's on my wish list, I had already watched a gameplay of it, I put it on the list, but I forgot, thanks for remembering

Conan Exiles, The Survivalist: these are games that are also on my wish list waiting for a good promotion =/ I didn't know Volcanoids and Ylands, I'll take a look later

Ark: I played a few hours and really liked it =)

Open World is a bit of a vague criterion but CrossCode technically has one. I mean, it's no Skyrim where you're just plopped in the middle of the map and told to go wherever, but it certainly has exploration and environmental puzzles. Do those count as Open World?
It also has great combat, great (and equally emphasized) puzzles, a cool story with fun characters and it is overall a very nice experience. In case those matter more than the Open World aspect. ^_^

I love the idea of this thread. Can I ask for suggestions in 2 genres?

My most favorite genre are difficult puzzle games, like Baba is You or Patrick's Parabox. I like it when the game is quick to load and has many small levels, so that I can boot it up and beat a level or two in a couple of minutes and close it again.

The second genre in which I'm looking for recommendations is casual 2D platformers. I'm looking for something bright and colorful, like Super Mario. I don't want the platforming to be too difficult and again I want there to be levels (so no Metroidvanias with one huge level). The Super Mario games would be good, but they're not on Steam.

I was going to say you'd probably like Recursed if you liked Patrick's Parabox, but it looks like you already tried it. Didn't like it? Other than that, I'd put Stephen's Sausage Roll up there in the same tier as Baba is You. Super hard and super fun.

Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

Recursed is great!

But the graphics didn't really click with me and the difficulty curve is a bit too steep there. I like difficult games, but I like to get there gradually via many easy-to-moderate levels first.

Thanks for the other recommendation. I can see that it's already on my wishlist :)

1 month ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

I don't think that they count as difficult except for the last few level but the puzzle games by Rainbow Train and Hamster On Coke are all of the kind where you can just quickly boot up the game, play one or two levels, and then close them again. Not quite sure if all the games share the same developer but both publishers put out games in the same style, and at least one title ("PUSH") is listed as being done by both.

If you want an amazing 2D (well, 2.5D actually) platformer that's bright and colorful, and incredibly charming, I can recommend Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair. It's pretty beginner friendly, but I must warn that the title is no joke and it gets really hard towards the end. The first/last level, the so called Impossible Lair which is the main gimmick of the game, is a brutal gauntlet of a multi-part boss fight that I wasn't able to beat. The rest of the game is pretty approachable tho, and the overworld map is a Zelda-esque top-down puzzle game in itself which is a really unique way of doing it.

Thanks! I can see that I already completed a few of the games of the two developers, but I'll keep my eyes on the remaining ones. It's a good recommendation, especially for the price.

Ha, I didn't realize Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair was a 2.5D platformer. I played Yooka-Laylee before, which is a 3D collectathon. I just won the Impossible Lair game on SG, so I'll give it a try soon, thanks!

Yeah, the two Yooka-Laylee games are completely different beasts. The first game was crowdfunded under the pretense of being an spiritual successor to the two Banjo-Kazooie games for the N64, and it pretty much is exactly that to a fault.
For the second game they just did something else entirely, instead making a modern take on the Donkey Kong Country games for the SNES, and it feels just as polished as DKC3 in terms of gameplay. It also looks really nice, the fixed camera angle did wonders for the artstyle.

SpaceChem's the most brutal puzzle game I know. It's one of those Zachtronics programming games (first one on Steam, actually). It even has a really cool story. Not really sure if it's good for "quick" play though, since the last thing I remember was a level taking me 4 hours to complete. XD
Other, simpler games which might fit the quick criteria better: Toki Tori, RUSH, Snakebird.

For platformers, how about Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams? I've seen people call it "difficult" (I found it perfectly manageable), but as far as I remember, Mario's later levels got pretty challenging, so you should be fine with this one too. ;P

pathos doesn't have undo. it wouldn't make the game easier, that's not what undo is for, but when levels take hundreds of steps, excluding it makes the whole thing tedious. and since levels are long, it doesn't fit your drop in & drop out criterion either but that's less of an isuse (can't remember if it has mid-level saving, which would also be a must for such ridiculous level lengths).

For puzzles, here are a few that popped into my mind:

A Monster's Expedition - An adorable and very chill Sokoban/exploration game by draknek & friends. Lots of small puzzles to solve as you hop across islands, so progress can be made in short sessions. The game is simultaneously tagged as "casual" and "difficult" because while the majority of the puzzles are easy, exploring the entire map and finding ways to reach certain parts of it can be very tricky. Main con, imo, is the repetitiveness of the easy puzzles.

English Country Tune - This is another Sokoban-style puzzler. It's old, but I tried it today and I think it stands the test of time. It starts out as a pretty straightforward Sokoban puzzle but the complexity ramps up quickly as new mechanic are introduced. Most of the puzzles rely on 3D spatial logic. The game is hampered a little bit by its unintuitive controls and its fixed camera which makes some puzzles hard to visualize. Otherwise, I think it's a neat, moderately difficult game.

She Remembered Caterpillars - This one is pretty short. There are only 40 puzzles which can be completed in 4-6 hours. The puzzle type can be compared to the old River Crossing puzzle where you're trying to get a fox, chicken and sack of grain across a river. It's not the most creative concept but the puzzles are good and I like its aesthetics. You might find it too easy if you're used to thinking sequentially.

Finally, I see that you own The Witness. You owe it to yourself to play that game!

Thanks! Good recommendations!

There was recently a very good Humble Bundle for puzzle games and I got The Witness from there. I haven't had time to play it yet because I was busy playing Patrick's Parabox since I bought the bundle xD

Ya, that was a great bundle for me! I've been enjoying Patrick's Parabox a lot. Taiji is supposed to be great as well.

I just remembered another puzzle suggestion: Princess Castle Quest - I don't own it but I tried the demo and it's very good. Edit: I see that Dohi beat me to it!
Also, I'll +1 Colorful Recolor suggested by nooba before me.

I probably have all of what need from these but it's possible that I missed some of them. I like strategy, building, isometric (3D is also fine), resource management. Trains and ships are optional, would be nice.

Some examples (all of them are early-access and I'm looking forward to play them at final release):

Well, Frostpunk is an isometric city building/management strategy game... It's also a dark brutal survival game where one of the resources to manage is your population's fleeting will to live and throws in some political sim elements when it really gets going. So, yeah, not sure if that would fit. (And also you've played it a little bit, so you probably decided that you didn't like it already. ^_^' )

If you see a game that a little bit played on my profile and haven't got permanently deleted, it means I have a plan for them some time later. The reason I haven't immediately get into this game was, mainly I'm not big on survival games (it's fine if it's a side genre) but this game is mainly survival. Also I previously played This War of Mine from the same studio and it was too depressing, Frostpunk is kinda similar to that atmosphere. Another reason, it was calculate-perfect and really unforgiving little mistakes. Don't get me wrong, I like challenge but this felt too steep. So I kinda threw it back in the backlog. :)

Thanks for the recommendation though. ^^

Edit: It seems you've played it enough to give some tips, would be appreciated.

The best advice I can give for games like these is "orchestrate the perfect start". Aka, at the start you're free to restart the game as much as you like without losing progress, so make sure that you maximize the risk/reward factor so you'd be "ahead of the curve" and if something goes horribly wrong, start over. Like you said- in these types of games if you fall behind the spot you're expected to be at, it usually just makes it harder to recover, so it's best to be ahead from the very start.

In the context of Frostpunk- stall building housing at the start until you absolutely have to and focus on gathering and research. If someone gets sick, restart/load a save, since that's just a HUGE inconvenience right at the start. Focus on Tech. Having better stuff lets you get resources faster to get even better stuff faster and lets you keep the population happy and not-sick. Also get scouts as soon as possible (that's how you get more people). After the initial resource rush at the start, keep your engineers always busy since there are way fewer of them than there are workers and they do very important jobs. If I remember correctly, it auto-saves at the start of every in-game day, so if you don't like how things are going, you can fall back on that (there are exactly two scout-related choices you get to make where the outcome is random and they're super dumb so I'd highly recommend save-scumming through those... you'll know them when you get there and it randomly fails you for no reason :T ).

It's been a while since I played the game, so I'm not 100% sure if the specifics of that advice is sound. All the scenarios I played at the time (don't own any of the DLC to play the DLC-locked ones) allowed you to get as close to a happy ending as possible, so it doesn't need to be super depressing. ^_^'
I really need to get the missing DLC and 100% the game at some point. My old laptop really didn't like the late-game when the city gets big enough (went into glorious sub-10 FPS mode) but the new one should be able to handle it... Oh, well, I guess that's the last piece of "advice" I can give- have a good enough computer to handle the game's less-than-stellar optimization. XD

I knew things were going random, just couldn't put my finger on it. I never considered save-scumming on Frostpunk (I particularly don't like doing that while playing strategy games) though I didn't play long enough to consider it. I just failed miserably a couple of times.

If I remember correctly, it auto-saves at the start of every in-game day

Oh that's why this game is kinda heavy on Steam Cloud, so they initially designed the game that way I guess. I was always short on workers, didn't know about scouts are for that job.

there are exactly two scout-related choices you get to make where the outcome is random and they're super dumb so I'd highly recommend save-scumming through those...

That's inconvenient. It seems they put too much RNG in this game.Trying to keep everything perfect, especially where RNG is present is pretty hard in a game. Perhaps they need to add souls-like in tags. :')

I think my PC can handle it without any problems, 1660Ti is still a good card. Though big cities can cause problems in any game, depends on the optimization.

Thank you for the tips. Somehow they didn't encourage me. :D

You kinda got that backwards... I pointed out the two scout instances (which, I guess you don't know at all what I'm talking about since you didn't get scouts... ^_^' ) because they are the annoying RNG. Everything else is pretty much static. Citizens only get sick if they live/work in cold conditions (and it's clearly indicated when you hover over the temperature indicator on a building; it only starts having a small chance for someone there to get sick when it's cold, which is your job to prevent entirely).

So, yeah, sorry... I guess I might have gotten a bit too try-hard-y with that strategy. You don't need to min-max that hard... just focusing on Tech from the start (and getting your scouts up and running) is enough to get you ahead of the curve on Medium difficulty. :X

Ok that's kind of a relief. Is it perhaps you played on hard then? :) If so, hard difficulty seems kinda harsh.
I think I might give it a go again soon (Though I'm waiting for a new SSD since current one is failing and I don't want to do anything on it).
I guess, when I use scouts properly, I won't need the children-power anymore. :P

It's okay. Seems like you kinda developed a playing mechanism after playing for some time. It's not a bad thing to learn them at the beginning. They can be somewhat scary though. :3

Thanks again!

Ah yes, Bobr Kurwa the Game. :)
It really looks interesting and definitely a very original game but playing with beavers is not my thing I guess.

I also followed Going Medieval for some time and the devs surely expanded the game but it's too low-poly for my taste. If that can be fixed with mods, I'm all for it, so I'm still waiting.

Thank you for recommendations.

I found out Against the Storm recently, it looks very nice but I'm kinda timid because of the rogue-lite tag (also in the trailer).

I know I may sound too picky but at least indie-game industry is getting bigger, which is great.

Aquatico

I saw many many games from these genres but first time seeing this. Looks original and kinda look like underwater Anno. Seems nerdy enough to keep me occupied. However checked some constructive reviews and it seems the game lacks of depth. Also ~30% of the reviewers think the same apparently.

Songs of Syx

Looks like a backwards Dwarf Fortress. Added to my wishlist.

Last Train Home

Seems interesting but I'm not too fond of a gameplay like Company of Heroes.

Flooded

Seems nice and I can say the devs worked for this hard. But the concept is not for me.

Click To Sail

Steam says "Excluded by preferences", because of roguelike tag. I gotta let it stay that way. :)
Gambling is a not a good habit anyway. :P

Battle Fleet

I thought it looks like a mobile, and then I noticed it is indeed a mobile game. I guess I can say "the battling part of Port Royale" for this game. I'm heavy on economy and trading parts. Though it's good to learn about this, I think I know a friend who might like this.

Anno 1800

This is on mt wishlist since the day it released on Steam, and one of those games I want the most from my wishlist. However I'm gonna wait for Gold Edition to see 75% discount at least. So, it will take some time and I'm okay with this. :)

King of Seas

This actually looks like something I might enjoy, even though this is not really a building kind of game. What I gathered from reviews, a game like this is expected to be played with a controller and apparently has a terrible mouse support, also Team17 abandoned this game. Shame, it looked fun.

Sorry, I'm too picky. But 2 out of 8 is pretty great for a person like me. :)
At least my wishlist reached 100 now. :)

Thank you for the recommendations. Besides Anno, for the first time saw the others. And Songs of Syx will be a great addition I hope. <3

I love deep character development mechanics รก la Diablo or Skyrim. Games focused on exploration are always a huge plus, as are immersive sim aspects that let me solve a problem in my own way.

They are. I also recommend the Dishonored DLCs if you don't have them (can only see base games on profile), they are really well-written and give an interesting perspective on the story.

I wholeheartedly recommend Portal Stories: Mel if you liked Portal 1 and 2, but I don't think there were any of those abandoned aesthetics - just on the story and puzzles side. I was thinking a bit, maybe The Division (2) would fit your criteria? I only played them for a bit (got 1 for free, played 2 during a free weekend), and found them okay, enjoyed more seeing abandoned buildings than the actual gameplay. Maybe The Last of Us?

I love rich-story games with puzzles or some kind of gameplay (not 100% visual novel), I can try different genres, although I'm not a big fan of shooters. Also, I am attracted to games that have a animated aspect (anime or cartoon), but it is not mandatory.

I love Ace Attorney Saga, Professor Layton Saga, Zero Escape Saga, The World Ends With You, Time Hollow, Ghost Trick, Stella Glow.

I haven't played these games yet but I know I'm going to love them haha:
Danganronpa, Detroit Become Human, Telling Lies.

I also feel immediately drawn to games that are "different", bizarre/absurd/funny, for example:

OMG a lot of interesting games!

Another Code is cool, I played it on Nintendo DS and the puzzles were very creative, I haven't played the sequel for the WII yet, although I'm glad they recently released a remaster for Switch.
I also liked Hotel Dusk, but I liked its sequel The Last Windows much more!
I'll definitely try Higurashi and Corpse Party, for now I only watched the animes haha
With the Persona saga I'm undecided whether to go first with Shin Megami Tensei or Persona, although I've read that SMT is very difficult

Aldo many og the game from spike chunsoft looks interesting. Rain Code looks very cool, Too bad I don't have a Nintendo Switch yet :(

I didn't know many of the other games, and since you told me that we have very similar tastes, I'm sure I'll end up liking them! Thanks Nooba!

likewise lol, the games will be a nice experience!

I'm undecided whether to go first with Shin Megami Tensei or Persona, although I've read that SMT is very difficult

there's so much hype for shin megami right now but persona 3 reload is hot off the tracks. ive also heard the same that SMT doesnt mess around so maybe compare both and see what better suits you right now to play, with the help of "pro gamer critics" maybe lol

Too bad I don't have a Nintendo Switch yet :(

hope you can get one soon enough, the amount of games on there ๐Ÿ˜”

Okay, so i assume it will be a difficult one.

I like Rpgs(preferably isometric), BUT NOT alike Larian's games (yes, even Baldur's gate 3, sorry guys)
I don't like steath or infiltration ,nor when there is too much action (i'm not a huge fan of ARPGs, with some exceptions)
I like when it's story driven, and if i can give an example, the two games that fit the most the genre are pathfinder games: Kingmaker and wrath of the Righteous
I also liked the first 2 mass effect and the first 2 dragon age, mostly because of the narrative and epicness

I know what you are thinking : 'this one is a pain' ,and you are perfectly right!

Okay so i'll try to find one for you.

Tortured hearts . It's an indie game, made by only one developper, its a bit rough around the edge, but it's a very interesting take on rpg. I spended way too much time (300+ hours) on that

On a more classical feel, i'd suggest Avernum or any Rpgs made by Spiderweb software. They are real gems (+spiders are nice)

Noooba already gave you a huge list i can add some, there's a new game called Zoria: Age of Shattering, also Colony Ship: a Post-Earth Role Playing Game, The Thaumaturge, Warhammer 40000 Rogue Trader, Cyber Knights Flashpoint (in early access) Wantless: Solace at World's End, i know that Pathfinder is realtime with pause combat with the option to turn based combat i don't know if that's a problem for you or not if you don't like turn based these are not the games for you...

2 games that i'm waiting for are Interregnum Chronicles: False Prophet and New Arc Line they're supposed to be available this year.

Now this is interesting
I already have Rogue trader (i was a bit disapointed) and Colony Ship (not started yet). Thaumaturge is on my wishlist (it just got released these days, am i right?)
However, i did not hear about Cyber Knights or Wantless. But these seem more to be tactical rpg (i have no problem with turn based combat, if the fights are not the main axis of the game)

I'll have a deeper look on all of these, adding the 2 you are waiting for (New arc line is also on my wishlist)

Thank you for the suggestions!

First thank you all for recs, I will be buying some of the recs soon. So TY v much.
Hey! My adult life is saved, made and is wholly gaming but I have been more a game discoverer than player bcoz I love games and I want more to help me in my life lows, so whatever time I get I am more searching to build collection than play but now I feel I have enough to focus on playing more.
I would love recs also in three themes please, they are mentioned below :)

1st Theme
I am a programmer but I suck at thinking (I am a feeler), I want to improve it and want some less violent strategy games (preferable beautiful, artistic looking but not cozy) and have great replay value. Games I love are Stellaris, Endless Space 2, Civ 6, all paradox games.

2nd Theme
I want beautiful looking games that I don't own on steam (Any kind of games but preferably non FPS and non violent games)

3rd Theme
Story rich games that are must to expereince. Preferably long story games. I also love text story games like Choice of Games and Hosted Games.

Also for those whom these themes are really interesting, check out my profile here: https://steamcommunity.com/id/justachild8/ (I guarantee you that you will find gems you haven't found anywhere else yet.)

Since you have almost every one of them, one more advice. Leave Factorio to later, because once you start it, it might prevent you from playing other games. :)

1st theme
Digital adaption of strategy board games is fun and have great replay value. I recommend carcassonne for it's replayability value.

Not sure about the digital version, but I enjoyed the physical version of Game of Thrones board game, and I think it is in a way similar to paradox's games.

As long as you're willing to spend time reading the rules and have friends to play with, you can play thousands of digital board games for free after you purchase tabletop simulator by downloading the digital board game you desire made by modders in the workshop. It also supports VR for better immersion.

2nd theme
Probably Abzu if you just want nice visuals, or microsoft flight simulator.

3rd theme
Probably you would like Umineko no Naku Koro ni (better play the PS3 version though, which could be played on the PC by following some instructions which should be relatively simple for a programmer such as yourself. You can check their community page for the guide on how to play the PS3 version), or raging loop, and stein's gate.

Umineko no naku koro ni is a very long visual novel but how it made you question reality and what you know about the game is fantastic.

1st Theme
I will check out GoT board game (I didn't like HBO Series though). I have Tabletop Simulator and I know you can play too many strategy games their but it went out of my mind thanks for re-emphazing it again. Gloom of Kilforth is a board game I want you to check out it has one of the most beautiful fantasy art of all board games. There are nearly 28000+ board games acc to BoardGameGeek and most are available to play on Tabletop Sim. :)

2nd Theme:
I have it on Epic, its indeed beautiful. I love Journey, The Longest Journey, Hollow Knight, Ori, Trine Series and many others that are in my steam wishlisht or games I own. MSFS too I own

3rd Theme:
Thanks for Umineko no Naku Koro ni. I have made a note and will play it and when I do I will msg you how I felt abt it. :) Stein's gate is actually boring at start and I didn't had time to finish it, but its on my mind to play later down. I have Raging loop on my WL

Thanks for the board game rec m8, I've added it on my list.

I personally never watched GoT, I just played the board games haha. So at the very least I am certain that I have no fan bias towards the board game.

I would like to confess that I only played the opening sequence of stein's gate, but the VN is commonly very highly recommended. What I did was I watched the anime series and it's prequel, and came to conclude that it has a fantastic story, albeit a slow and boring build up.

Umineko suffers from similar issues. The earlier chapters is more of a build up. But when things get going, oh boyy you're in for a ride. Very complex storytelling and fantastic music.

Raging loop needs several hours of built up, but it's not that long.

However, if you can't stand built ups, try Danganronpa, it has faster pacing and introduction->conflict->rising action->climax->falling action->resolution sequence. You can finish the game in a day or two. It's probably better for those who enjoy binge watching tv shows but can't stand watching a >3 hour long movie.

I don't mind slow build up but it has to be engaging, Stein's gate felt a bit meaningless sometimes, if you get what I mean. I have AI: Somnium Files and Zero Escape like Danganronpa but I prefer them for now above Danganronpa.
And I am so glad to hear you recommend GoT without being series fan, I am gonna buy GoT and News Tower both games from same developer soon. TY :)

thank you so much for efforts and enthusiasm for helping all of us here. :) (I have read all your edits TY :) )

๐Ÿซ‚

I really loved your recs, how you do this?

there's a system to it :D

1) gathering keywords by users, doesnt matter how big or small

  • (beautiful was an important one, programmer with the additional info was a nice tidbit)

2) adding those to my pastebin to search on steam, mix and matching for different results

  • (especially for genres that dont have specific tags, you end up seeing what categories they substitute with instead)

3) filtering out till there's about 100 results or less then viewing the majority, may or may not include mixed games

4) swapping between viewing "relevance" and "user reviews" to weigh the options

  • (sometimes searching solely on steam isnt optimal and i look elsewhere to get games that go by more obscure tags)
  • (eg: brick breaker games occasionally went by the tags "pinball" and "shooter")

5) reading reviews on the game via steam and/or elsewhere

6) checking discovery queue, stumbled on a couple to recommend besides keeping for myself

7) seeing if they already own it, if it feels relevant sometimes i double check their wishlist just to be safe

this takes forever lol, it seems to have paid off for the most part. speaking of which i should continue the requests from now, i was sleepy yesterday.

you could also keep an eye on https://www.steamgifts.com/discussion/G5CE6/recommend-your-favorite-unknownunderrated-indie-games-here

I would like games similar to Kingdom Hearts, whether it be in terms of story, gameplay, or preferably both besides:

  1. Final Fantasy series;
  2. The World Ends With You series;
  3. Metal Gear Solid series; and
  4. Chrono Trigger series.

It's not because I don't like those games. Those games are great. But I am already familiar with them.

Zwei series have the same gameplay as KH and has good story, but you might only want to play the second one since the first one's gameplay is kinda stiff.
I also heard ys series having the same gameplay although i never played it myself.

If you want to stretch it tales of' gameplay is also similar. I only played vesperia although i believe the other series is also like that.

Trails of got a good story although the gameplay is traditional turn based.

I need a single player game, with a clear story and progression, in which you have safe base, which you upgrading and which is giving you boosts, so your character is stronger. You are going outside and finding resources to upgrade your base until you are strong enough to beat the whole game. BUT I don't want survival elements - no food meter etc, your base is basically your level up system.

It can be a rougelike, if it is really focusing on metagaming - in most roguelikes there is only little progression between sessions.

The best game I know of this kind is Rogue Legacy. Wall World was also very good example, although it was a bit too short and easy.

1, drawkanoid is a lot of fun and I enjoyed brick breaker as well (regularly goes 90% off, might as well wait for that, full price is too much). plus krakout is on steam now, I played it as a kid (and later) on the c64, awesome soundtrack too.

if you don't mind the game wasting your time by not saving progress when you quit, there's also shatter (the original for a few bucks, not the more expensive 'remaster', which is basically the mobile version), wizorb

if you don't mind the devs ditching on the season pass and promised content and updates, dx-ball 2 is supposed to be great.

and a few more I haven't played yet that might be good (not that the tag system on steam is much use with idiots fucking it up but why isn't there a brick breaker or breakout tag?): strikey sisters, death's hangover.

2, I assume by free you mean free, not a demo with $50 paid dlc.
the supper (point & click)
teku (islanders-like)
axiallis (tetris-like)
block in the lock (puzzler, used to be paid)
blockdown (cube-roller with weird landscapes, used to be paid)
dawn of a soul (excellenet number-puzzler, used to be paid)
move 'n' bloom (same dev, also excellent, also went free)
dr. langeskov (stanely parable-like)
handshakes (yes, puzzler)
inline (tetris-like, used to be paid)
jgsw (used to be paid, has online 'co-op')
senna and the forest (deductive puzzler, used to be paid, one of my absolute favorites)
kili's treasure (same dev, used to be paid)
timpu's treasure (ditto)
nine lives (tritto)
little square things (lots of different puzzle mechanics, retro presentation)
turn on the light jigsaw (latest in the series, the only free one)
resynth (puzzler, used to be paid, now it's free and only available on itch for some reason)

Turn-based RPGs and strategy games as well as visually appealing roguelikes and metroidvanias are very appealing to me, preferably something keyboard friendly. I already have Dark Deity, Hades, Carrion, Steambot series, Cthulhu games, and Book of Demons.

I also appreciate some text-based adventure games and trading sims.

Metroidvania - Ori and the Blind Forest (and its sequel), however when I tried mnk for a bit (only after completing the game), it felt a bit harder than with the controller. Not sure if it's because I got used to playing it with the controller (after 20+ hours), or if the layout is bad in itself (can't customize it in Blind Forest, not sure about Will of the Wisps as I don't have it). Maybe Hollow Knight and Dead Cells, but I don't own them so I don't know their "keyboard playability".
Roguelikes - I would have said Isaac, but I personally wouldn't call it "visually appealing", lol. Maybe Revita, if you like pixel graphics? I found it kinda hard, but nice and fun to play, as well as a nice music. Also plays well on mnk, even better than with the controller imo.
Not interested in the other 4 genres so can't recommend anything.

metroidvanias: shantae, minoria, dust an elysian tail

If you are willing to separate turn based rpg with strategy, here are some turn based that i enjoyed: monster sanctuary, trails in the sky, and digimon cyber sleuth

Same as below: Underrail for turn-based RPG. But it is quite complex and the setting might not be for everyone.

For Metroidvania: La-Mulana, though it is not visually appealing but probably one the best designed Metroidvania experiences you can find, as long as you play without a guide. That really feels like exploration.
Or Dust: An Elysian Tail: Not much of a Metroidvania but pleasing to the eye.

Thanks for the thread! Lately Iโ€™ve been searching for games that can make me enjoy playing games again. Have tried to keep from playing for a while and also tried some random games, but no luck so far.

Things that interest me:

  • Open world
  • Less focus on story
  • 2D or anime-like art style
  • Cozy

Kindly give me recommendations for these genres (as many as you can haha):

  1. Cozy sim like Stardew Valley, Dinkum, and Animal Crossing. Have tried My Time at Portia and take a look on Sun Haven and Spirittea, but didnโ€™t find it enjoyable. Also have tried Little Witch in the Woods, kind of like it but I think still missing something.

  2. I kinda like the point that you can gather your allies and just free to walk wherever you like with those companions. It can be tactical RPG like Final Fantasy Tactics, Tactics Ogre, and Shin Megami Tensei. Mostly played these genres on their GBA or NDS version, and now looking for the same on PC games (not GBA or NDS emulated games). Tried Fae Tactics and looking at Fell Seal, but did not like it. Also can be something like Mount and Blade. I have tried Wartales but did not enjoy it. Currently looking at a chance to play Battle Brothers and Sands of Salzaar. Would prefer turn based but open to anything. I also like Pokemon Mystery Dungeon and looking to play Shiren the Wanderer.

  3. Simple action RPG that not focusing on story. One of the example that I like is Shining Soul series on GBA, where I can play without thinking so hard.

Thanks before!

1, big farm story is much better than stardew because you can save and quit anytime without losing progress and there's no time pressure or stress. there's also yonder: the cloud catcher chronicles and grow: song of the evertree from the same dev but I haven't played those yet.

2, try jagged alliance 2, possibly 3. big fucking island, get a team, kill bad guys. there's obviously more to it.

Thanks for the recommendation!

  1. Big Farm Story seems goof, but I saw on the review that one of the problem of it is how short a day is. Do you experience this also? Yonder and Grow seems fine, but I donโ€™t think I can enjoy those two.

  2. Ah yes, Jagged Alliance! Itโ€™s been on my radar before but I kinda forget it. Will check it out when it is discounted. Thanks for this!

I wrote a review for big farm story, should answer some questions. don't recall issues regarding day length. it's also one of the very few games I paid more than a few bucks for, bought it at half price (10 eur) after a free weekend and played (well, binged) it immedialy.

for your 1 ) I'd heavily recommend Coral Island, which is some Stardew valley with better graphics (+ diving)
For your 2) i'd suggest the Persona (same devs than Shin Megami Tensei) , i liked persona 4 the most but it depends probably on your age.

  1. Iโ€™ve tried Coral Island before, but it still missing some contents at the time. It is also what I read last time I saw the review after full release. Is it fully completed now? And also donโ€™t know why but I donโ€™t really like the art style.
  2. Yes Iโ€™ve tried Persona series (P3P and P5R) and just a while ago started P3 Reload. Even after all of these attempt, I still find the school part and more focus on the story make it less enjoyable than SMT. To be honest, I enjoy Persona 5 Tactica more than the normal Persona series.

1)That's true that Coral Island was released a bit too early. Today, it's mostly completed but there are still some things needing some ironing.

2) It's completely understandable, and to be honest i like Persona more than Shin Megami Tensei, probably for the reasons you talk about. :)

A quality or two (C)RPG to play after Baldur's Gale 3 that isn't made by Larian?
Did Persona 5 and Disco Elysium, loved them. Gave Witcher 3 a crack too, and it hasn't clicked with me yet.
I'd also much prefer it if it's controller/Steam Deck friendly. :P
Open to all kinds of gameplay style, it can be turn-based, a deckbuilding game, anything.

Got anything in mind?

Solasta, Dragon Age Origins, Icewind Dale, Pillars of Eternity, Planescape Torment, Divinity Orignal Sin 2, Spiderweb Interactive Games - I can come up with this for now. But if you want more, let me know, I need to dig into my library.
Edit: Dig into my lib so here are few more
Torment:Tides of Numenera, Alaloth: Champion of Four Kingdom, Wasteland Series, ShadowRun Series

Oh yes, I did a little bit of Solasta a while back, and have a few of what you mentioned in my GOG or other non-Steam libraries, I think...
Just tried DOS1 today and I am going to start DOS2 tomorrow.

Thank you kindly for the recommendations, some of the games you listed have managed to evade my radar this whole time!
Heh, I wish CRPGs were more popular. I think BG3 has shown the world we gamers do want more, not just GTA or CoD.

Pathfinder: Kingmaker is one CRPG I liked despite a few bugs and shooting myself in the foot at the beginning. The combat rules are a bit tricky to pick up, though. I still don't understand it all after a 100+ hour playthough.

Lovely. I think I have that one too sitting somewhere in my PC game library, I'll keep that in mind since you enjoyed it very much!

shooting myself in the foot at the beginning

Didn't we all? Haha, it's precisely how I started my first BG3 playthrough.

Have you tried Wrath of the Righteous as well? That's the one I've been looking into and as of now I'm still not sure if it's gonna be a right call for me. I think I might be helplessly hooked to the 5e ruleset, lol.

If you want to give Kingmaker a whirl, you probably have it as an Epic freebie which is where I played it. I'm playing Wrath right now but I'm still in the first area and the game hasn't opened up just yet. So far, it looks pretty promising. It seems to have few general quality of life improvements over Kingmaker which is nice.

Oh, I forgot to mention Tyranny earlier, also an Epic freebie. It's from the same folks who made Pillars of Eternity and New Vegas. Be prepared for a rather lengthy character setup process at the start on that one... it's worth it, though.

You could try Underrail. It is an interesting RPG with quite a vast world, though it feels a bit clunky at times. It is also very difficult and with no way to respecc, you can even end up with a build early to mid-game which simply can't advance anymore. But at least on normal there are few viable options.

Thank you for the recommendation. I actually do have a soft spot for this kind of art style, the way you described it sounded incredibly punishing though. But hey, I am the kind of person who's totally up for a good challenge. If I'm determined to see it through, I won't back down. I always find a way. I may not have the skills needed right off the bat, but I have the power of perseverance on my side, if I say so myself lol. :)

I'll keep an eye out for it. <3

I love adventure games with a bit of exploration, but hate massive open worlds with little to nothing besides padding. I adore Tomb Raider, and like what I've played of Yakuza 0 so far. I also enjoy the tense atmosphere of Dark Souls mixed with its often interesting environments. Point & click is appreciated, too.
I'm fine with any input method besides VR, because I don't have that. I do, however, have a Steam Deck.

Cheers!

Cute pfp and profile! :D

You played Dishonored, if you liked it I recommend Dishonored 2 and Death of the Outsider (since you own them but didn't play them yet).
Under 4 hours, did you not like Tomb Raider 2013, or is it just Steam offline shenanigans? :') (I liked it a lot, and would be one of the first games I'd recommend for "adventure but not massive open world".)
Not really adventure, but since you finished both Portal and Portal 2, I definitely recommend Portal Stories: Mel! I didn't play the other mods yet so I can't personally recommend them yet, but I mostly heard good things about them (Reloaded, Revolution). Portal Stories: Mel is really well-written, and the voice acting is really good too.

Thank yooooou! Bubble Bobble is the best, so creating that Bub emoji art made me happy.

I ended up getting sick before I could do much in Tomb Raider '13, which frustrated me out of finishing it. I'll probably try it again soon, when I'm feeling better. Especially since I've been reminded of it. I'd like to play through more of my Tomb Raider games this March. I'll also look into Portal Stories: Mel. As for the others, I'll check them out later.

Thanks!

Yep. I copy/pasted the emojis in paint, then wrote out and copy/pasted the code for it. It was really satisfying to create.

I've actually started Tomb Raider '13 for PAGYWOSG, and it's been fun. I like it a lot better than Tomb Raider Underworld, the most recent game I beat, which is a pleasant surprise.

They're fun. The controls for the first ones are a bit of an acquired taste, though. Modern gamers will probably find them a bit weird. The two newer sets of trilogies are much easier for Tomb Raider newbies to get into.

I'm hoping they fix the modern controls for the Tomb Raider remaster, to make it easier for everyone to enjoy. I'd adore it if more folks could learn to appreciate what are some of my most beloved games.

I tried the first one a bit; controls were weird indeed but okay. To me, as a fairly young gamer, it's mostly the graphics that make them less appealing to me. ๐Ÿ˜… I don't have the nostalgia factor, so I'd rather just play the reboot, and maybe a remake if that happens one day. For now, OG or remaster, not really for me. :') I however fully get why people love them, though. I don't doubt the gameplay's quality itself. ๐Ÿ˜Œ

This is a great idea, thank you for doing this!

I have 3 game "genres" that I long to play again:

1) Deckbuilding roguelike games: I loved Slay the Spire, Monster Train, etc. It seems though that all new games coming out are clones of StS or another highly successful game. I have tried many games using cards, but nothing was as addictive as StS. So if you know of any game with original gameplay or at least an interesting twist, I'm interested.
2) Strategy map-painting games: since stopping Europa Universalis IV, I have not found anything that can scratch that itch in a satisfying way. I've played a few others, but nothing has the depth of EU4, with empire-building without micromanagement as well as strategic wars and conquests.
3) Emotional character-based games: I'm thinking mainly of Spiritfarer here. I LOVED that game because I found it very relaxing, yet there were clearly defined goals, and all the characters were endearing. It broke my heart a little every time I delivered one of them to the door, yet it was a good heartbreak.

Not sure if it counts towards 3, but Ori and the Blind Forest felt quite emotional to me. However, being a metroidvania, the story is really "secondary" in terms of play time proportions.
I see you have 6 hours on it but no achievements, so not sure if you played it offline/reset achievements or if it was just for card farming.

I have only farmed it so far - I wish there was a way to identify farmed games. In any case, Ori and the Blind Forest is part of the games on my "to-play" list. Knowing that it could be emotional, I will bump it up several places. Thanks for the suggestion!
