Holy shit it's been a looooong time since I started a thread.

Right now my megafactory in Factorio is on hold as I rerun some numbers after miscalculating output requirements and work through a case of the Don't-Wannas about tearing down my current foundry block setup after realizing the bot logistics won't work like I want them to (visually I think the foundries look damn good).

I also started playing Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, and it's a somewhat refreshing game to play: no inventory, no quests, puzzles, Norse mythology, and a combat system that's both intuitive and aggravating. The inability to jump I'm still trying to get over though.

Tropico 5 Espionage DLC.

Dusted off Spacebase DF9. Shit, that game is frustrating and highly dependent on RNG. I think I have a decent base going but we're one pirate attack away from death... and my failed base before that where everyone kept dying but a ship came along shortly after revealed the endgame event: giant pirate attack with 50 ships. F**king wonderful.

Factorio, eh? I try it again every once in a while, but it's a nightmare. I can't manage all these different resources and (semi)finished products for beans, it always turns into conveyor belt spaghetti. Those Youtube videos make it look so easy.

I revisited A Hat in Time to check out the new DLC, which is... alright, but not as well-made as the base game by a long shot, bit disappointing. Also played Banished for a while, was nice and challenging at first, but once you get past the early difficulties and your town is stable it gets rather monotonous. After that I guess the idea is that you design your town however you want and challenge yourself, but there's not enough bells and whistles to make that fun for me.

Oh, and I bought Railroad Tycoon 3 from GOG, for nostalgia's sake. I got it as a birthday gift from I-don't-remember-who when I was younger, but whoever gave it to me obviously didn't realize that just because it says ages 3 and up on the box doesn't mean it's actually playable from that age. It does require a good understanding of economics to know how to play, which I lacked. Now that I'm a big boy (or so I've convinced myself), I decided it's time I give it a proper shot. Did alright, but not gonna stick around to gold medal every scenario, some of them are just annoying. Also, as far as I can tell, this game coined the term "Dutchlantis", which is my favorite nickname for my home country.

Also bought and played Warcraft III for similar nostalgia reasons, and I casually play Overwatch to wind down after I get home from college. There's still a couple games I bought from the latest Steam Sale which I still intend to get around to, but I don't know when that'll be.

I've been playing Stellaris. I started with a joke faction recently based on my real-life civic views... And it worked. Astonishingly well. Now I've uninstalled all my mods for achievements and I'm smashing it.

I may go back to minecraft soon: I don't want to keep paying for my server as nobody is using it. But if I enjoy it, I'll keep going.

I recently quit Elite: Dangerous cold turkey. I was no longer enjoying it and felt that the game doesn't respect the player's time.

Lastly, I have Pokémon blue emulated on my phone. It's great! I'm naming all my mons "*BOI" eg Pikachu as SPARKYBOI. It's a fun challenge to think of a name for each one.

I never got into Minecraft, which is odd because I like exploration and building stuff in games.

What is it that you feel is missing? Is it the complete freedom and lack of structure?

Tbh the exploration in minecraft has always been pretty lackluster. There's not much new nor crazy to find in any of the randomly generated worlds on it... At least not enough to keep you interested to play it more than a few times (purely for exploration I mean, not building).
Mods and plugins are the only saving grace that kept the game alive and well for so many years.... At least in my experience, 90% of the time (and it was a looot of time) I've had in MC was with me either building/playing on a server with tons of plugins installed or playing LAN worlds with mods.

I'm playing Warframe, btw (slightly more than I'd like to admit it)

I think a big part of Minecraft's charm is that these things aren't divorced from one another. You don't just walk by a scenic mountainside and think "oh okay cool," you see that and you think "Ohh, I'mma build a fortress in that one!"

...The main thing that holds me back is, I don't like to put effort into making things that nobody will ever see, it makes me feel like I could be spending my creativity better. On that note...
I recently got minecraft, and would be down to play if we got a group going.
I second that. Minecraft's only fun together, really.

Sure thing, my tag is just "lordsipia", shoot me a friend invite. Don't know when we'd both be online at the same time, but it's worth a try.
Some of you have Tropico 5... love to try out the multiplayer with that.
Might also be down to try that... Although, I dropped playing it not long after I first bought it, and I haven't touched it since. So I'd be a more than a little rusty.

I wouldn't mind playing Minecraft sometime, I greatly enjoy leveling mountains with my trusty spades and pickaxes I'm the type who enjoys the digging process more than building anything, which is why I also get bored of MC quickly.

I just started playing Sims 3 again as myself in a house modeled after my apartment. Kinda nice

Sounds suspiciously like the way I played Terriaria with, uh, Henrz? DE? LS? Can't remember. The way I forced the poor fella rush through the game because ain't nobody got time for fooling around with bronze or whatever ! By the time we got to end game he was just burnt out or something.

Yeah, that sounds like my experience playing Terraria with you. By the end I felt like I'd been dragged to hell and back several times... Actually, I was, now that I think about it.

Huh, Minecraft. Haven't heard that name in a long past forever. Okay actually I've been meaning to go back to it but it's been so long... also I noticed there's two versions now - classical Java and uh what's it again? Bedrock? So which one should I grab then...?

On my nth Skyrim playthrough right now, I think I've officially run out of fun things to do. my god there's an awful lot of unplayed games in my library what am i doing with my life


Also MH you kinda remind me of my little brother when it comes to Terraria... always rushing to get the best crap while sods like me just want to build nice stuff. If you really are anything like him then you must not be much fun to play with

@Lurkur: Yeah, it's definitely possible I'm not too fun to play with, as it's usually one of the two: either I'm too goal oriented or then I'm just doing my own thing Terraria and Minecraft are kinda like the two extreme examples of those playstyles. In Terraria I just go forward at full speed, while in MC I just dig dirt by myself while occasionally asking what the others are doing I don't think I'm too good at playing multiplayer just for fun, the only game that instantly comes to mind for that is Garry's Mod that I used to play back in the day. Loved making race tracks and wooden wars.

EDIT: actually, it might be interesting to count how many games I've spoiled for people over the years

That's basically minecraft in a nutshell.
It's usually not that great of a time investment indeed But it is kinda fun to see the results of your efforts (specially if you're building in multiplayer or in a server).


Also, Terraria with mods is the best thing ever (the early game gets much less repetitive/dragged - which is one of my main qualms with what's otherwise a great game).
