PostSubject: Recommend games!   Sat Dec 04, 2010 10:23 pm

Alright, this is where we recommend games to other members and read some suggestions!

I'll start with these:

- Rome: Total War

This is a TBS/RTS hybrid, which consists of a TBS system on an ancient european map and RTS battles where you control literally thousands of d00ds. The time of the game is during the early roman republic period (270BC), shortly after the end of Alexander's macedonian empire. You control every aspect of your faction and lead your armies to war, with a rather faithful representation of how battles were supposed to be back in the day.

I really recommend any Total War title, the later ones too, it's just that I have an old computer which doesn't run anything better than RTW.

- Warhammer 40000 Dawn of War

An RTS with a reduced building aspect and a different approach to economy (controlling strategic points of the map gives you more resources, which avoids turtling), plus with a nice squad based system, set in the Warhammer 40000 universe. Definitely worth anyone's time.

Great Topic!

I recommend,

Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem

I think the back of the box sums it up very nicely, "Perpare for an epic psychological thriller
where nothing is as it seems. As you delve deeper into the dark designs of an ancient evil,
you'll have to fight to save your character's sanity...and your own."


Seriously, when you walk into a room, only to find your self on the celling. Plus walls bleeding? Cool Beans!

Seems that I got hooked more in Dawn of War than you. I got Soulstorm and downloaded an AI mod to make the AI alot better.

I don't know about multiplayer, but the expansion itself isn't too buggy. Game crashes sometimes, but I do have alot of downloaded stuff installed on it.

Well, that wasn't the first time I was hooked to DoW, it was the third. I play something a lot and then let it sit for months/years.

Yeah, maybe mods do fix Soulstorm, since the developer closed and left the game unfinished, but downloading them is a hassle.

@Zargata - Sounds like something I'd like to play, too bad I don't have a GC.


Another game:

- Civilization IV (or even V)

It's Civilization, I don't really need to say more :afro:

For the DotA/PC game fans out there, I recommend LEAGUE OF LEGENDS.

Been playing it since this summer, awesome stuff. Free to play, but it's not one of those cheap f2play games Razz

League of Legends

I also recommend that OB64 fans try out of any of the Fire Emblem games, which (counting only the ones released in NA), include:
  • Fire Emblem (GBA)
  • Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones (GBA)
  • Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance (GC)
  • Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn (Wii, sequel to Path of Radiance)
  • Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon (DS)

I absolutely love the Fire Emblem series, it's seriously awesome.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barkley,_Shut_Up_and_Jam:_Gaiden

This is an awesome game, you guys should play it. The fun it pokes on fanactical japanophiles, furries and the gaming community in general (plus popular and basketball culture) will make it worth your time. Seriously.

(btw the trailer says it's rated M but don't worry :afro: )

Also Cave Story, a very good sidescroller. Both can be found for free (they're independent games) on PC, Cave Story was ported to the Wii IIRC.

Maybe I'll give it a try after I finish Super Mario RPG, a modded version of it. The original was too easy.

Crono Trigger is higher on my priority list though.

Well, I've played all three, and I must say, Earthbound is awesomer then both Crono and Mario RPG. Although
Mario is pretty close. For the era, it is the best underrated game. It's got so much character and heart.

So I do hope you make time to play it someday.

I've never played Earthbound but CT is pretty much the best SNES game I've played (and one of the best ever to me haha) so don't change your priority list :joker:

I donno about Chrono Trigger. It's okay.

I suppose since I didn't play it at a young age, It doesn't have the same 'vaule'
as like for something like Super Mario Rpg or Earthbound.

I mean the game wasn't bad, for it's time. I beat it once but never
played it again. Fun no doubt, but I suppose it just didn't hit me the same as the others.

So I donno.

I did play Chrono Trigger after Chrono Cross (which is THE favorite game of all), then CC, then CT, etc... when you notice the subtleties linking the two games, everything gets even better. One complements the other quite nicely. And when you play CC after finally having an epiphany with CT's storylines (figuring out everything), it's FABULOUS

Earthbound, Mario RPG, and Chrono Trigger are in my top favs for games. The SNES was just an amazing system as far as the game library went.

As far as my recommendations go I would say Guild Wars for pc, Magi-Nation for gameboy, and any Monster Hunter title.

Surprised to see LoL mentioned here (even if it was several months ago), such an amazing game! I play it every day!

For my recommendation, I'd like to toss in Disgaea for the PS2 (or DS I believe). Great tactics game with an amazing class system and a ridiculously in-depth item system.

Gotta recommend any Animal Crossing game...!

Why? Sometimes I just like to fish. It's a good game to kick back and do nothing.

I suppose I'll also recommend any game from the Ace Attorney series. I <3 Phoenix Wright.

Love OoT and MM.

But I must say, after years of playing both, I still prefer MM.

Same here, I just love all the masks you get to collect! Also, I like the story more. That's not to say it's better necessarily, but there's just something that draws me to it a bit more strongly than OoT's.

I have to disagree ,But maybe its because Ive had OoT since I was 2,but I think its because of the appearence of princess zelda as Sheik.
edit:
figured it out,Its because you can play as Link as an adult and you can change his appearence! Very Happy

No doubt that OoT is a great game indeed.

OoT is a solid game. It has great levels, interesting characters, and a compelling story.

Also the remake, I want to so bad! If only I had a 3DS!

But to the point, the reason I prefer MM is because it is so different. OoT is the best of the
classic formula, while MM is the best for something different in the Zelda universe.

I haven't finished either of those games, since I stop after a while for some reason everytime I try (though I watched a friend play them to the end), but OoT appeals more to me due to its story progression.
