of any shape or form, post here when you have something vidya related
I finished Star Fox for the SNES and I really loved that the game expects you to turn off the console after finishing it. Reminds me of other /kind/ games like Earthbound, Mario Kart 64 and Undertale
The theme of friendship is stronger on 64 though.

Naisu, I'm willing to wait until I get a PSVita to play those, seem to be more comfortable there.
Speaking of PSVita vidya, I did play Disgaea, but ended up dropping it after the red moon singing for some reason. If anyone has played it here, how far is that into the game? I grinded a bunch of items as well.

I've been playing Persona 3 FES the past few days, and god I just love it. I've played P3P twice, but it feels like I've missed out on a lot. I think it might be my favorite game. I really liked that most of the party members got a proper character arc, and that SEES is a team that works together out of necessity, rather than just a group of friends.

Dragon Quest games are pretty /kind/. Some games in the series have a party chat system with an absurd amount of lines so no matter how trivial an event is you can always talk with your party members about it and it feels like you're hanging out with your friends during the entire game.

After changing that CPU I finally get to emulate Wii games properly, I've been having a blast playing Rock Band 2. It's not the same thing just playing the songs on Clone Hero, the fact that you have to grind to the best tracks makes the good excel more over the """bad""" if there is any.

Rockband 2 is my favorite of those sorts of games! It's fun and has the best tracklist in my opinion. I wish my friends were more into that sort of music, so maybe they'd like the games as well.

>Rockband 2 is my favorite of those sorts of games! It's fun and has the best tracklist in my opinion
Cool! It's pretty neat and I like how the game makes it's lenght larger with the venues, it's what Guitar Hero World Tour wanted to be but couldn't.
>It's fun and has the best tracklist in my opinion
The tracklist is very fitting to the aesthetic of it, when I was playing WT I didn't feel like the setlist was fitting for it, but here it fits.
>I wish my friends were more into that sort of music, so maybe they'd like the games as well
I had a friend of mine that got into it back again when I mentioned him about it. I doubt he's still playing it though.
>I saw the drums on sale at a store I go to occasionally, but I never picked em up, and now they're gone
Absolute bummer, I'm already pretty good with Guitar I use a normal keyboard to play and the drums seem to be very useful since they can also be used in a DAW apparently. Plus entertaining.
What made you interested in these sort of games?

>>980
>It's what Guitar Hero World Tour wanted to be but couldn't
Yeah, I've always viewed guitar hero as the more simplistic series. It should've just stuck with the old formula. Keep it more arcadey.
>I didn't feel like the setlist was fitting for it
I think it's more of an issue of the setlist being all over the place. It had too much variety, where as, Rockband 2 was mostly "alternative" stuff.
>I use a normal keyboard to play
That's understandable, guitars are super expensive now. I only got mine in a trade with a friend who needed a ps3 controller with sixaxis.
>What made you interested in these sort of games?
Well, my family used to play them back when they got super popular, but back then I was really young and didn't really care for music back then. Now that I'm interested in music, I figured they would be fun. I stuck with it because it's the sort of game that you get better at pretty quick, and I find that super satisfying. How about you?

I've been playing them when I was a child and just rediscovered the games last year. Have been obsessed since, it's great being able to play something that you couldn't before, you can really feel progress as you go along
>I stuck with it because it's the sort of game that you get better at pretty quick
Makes me a tad ashamed to say that winning Raining Blood on expert took me almost half a year IIRC. I've never felt so euphoric though
Makes me want to get onto other rhythm games like Beatmania but I think emulating them is a pain in the ass and they don't have any kind of in-game progress. They just have the tracks, I need some progress mang.

That's fine, I'm still not very good, honestly. I can do all the easy songs on expert, and like, half the moderately difficult songs as well. I was better than half of my friends the last time we all played.
>They don't have any kind of in-game progress
Yeah, that's pretty lame. It's hard to get into something if there's no real sense of direction to it.

If you want some older games I recommend super Mario rpg, chrono trigger and FFVI.

Interesting question. I don't think I've played many explicitly kind video games. I'm sure there are a lot out there. I'm not that knowledgeable about the genre, but aren't there a wide variety of visual novels about various topics? Wholesome visual novels must exist, right? Puzzle type games? Also, I guess city builder games are kind in that they're not adversarial or anything. Give your citizens a better life! The Sims, maybe? Racing games like Mario Kart and Super Tux Kart or whatever are fairly wholesome… like, you might throw out a banana peel or something, but it's not like you outright kill your opponent. They are competitive, but they're usually good games for having casual fun with friends at parties and probably not a huge source of bullying. There are those walking simulator things and conceptual indie games at sites like itch.io that, though they may not be explicitly kind, they're not explicitly mean spirited in anyway either. How about Minecraft or Stardew Valley maybe?

I just recently got Animal Crossing New Horizons and it is definitely a very kind game. Need to get iron nuggets to upgrade/build the shop, but there's not many rocks around to hit to get resources, and you can only hit them 3 times per day for resources, so it might take me a while to get to the 30 needed.

For me, the only zen I've found in danmaku is a sadistic zen master repeatedly hitting me over the head with a keisaku. I completed one of them out of sheer spite, but I do have respect for players who can occupy that headspace and succeed in those games. Should make a point to check out some of the other Touhou games in other genres. Been re-reading the manga this winter to pass the time. Touhou is comfy ;^)

>What kinds of games do people here play while listening to podcasts, music or Youtube vids?
I get bored with most games sound design after having played through them a bit. I like podcasts for something like a grand strategy game, spreadsheet game, or a grinder where there is a lot of tedious tasks that need to be accomplished before any heavy concentration is required.
Sometimes I enjoy pairing the podcast with the game. Anyone else ever do this?
If playing Civilization or Hearts of Iron, then I might listen to something like Hardcore History. Or maybe political talk for a title like that. Recently replayed emulations of the old Nintendo and Genesis versions of Shadowrun while waiting for the bugs to get worked out of Cyberpunk 2077. Listened to Starship Sofa and Escape Pod sci-fi podcasts while grinding through those. Have put up lectures about architecture or city planning on a second screen while playing city builders. Certain episodes of something like Radio Misterioso or any ayylmao related conspiracy talk with a game like X-COM. Etc.
But if it's a FPS or something very hectic, I usually will go for a familiar music playlist, often instrumental, up tempo, but not too distracting.

Maybe unfortunate that Podcast stuck as a term because Apple pushed it and sold a lot of iPods. I don't know what it would be better to call them, but I listen to some audios from RSS feeds when I play vidya. Pic related of the Breakout game Easter egg on the early iPod.

I've finished the first three Silent Hill games, and I have to say, they are easily a few of my all time favorites. Each of the three stand out in a particular way for me.
The first game had the best atmosphere and environment. The PS1 graphics really work well for it. "Realistic" graphics and unrealistic things don't work all that well, as it leaves less to the player's imagination, they can't create their own horror.
The second game was the most immersive for me, particularly after the hospital. It's hard to explain exactly why, but things get disorienting in a way I've experienced myself before. It's also a really cool game in general.
The third game was the scariest, and also the most fun for me. Heather's cute too.
This will be my final Silent Hill post.

I've been playing Civilization IV lately. It's something I come back to every once in a while and then drop when I get sick of the enemies' unit stacks of doom. I love the game otherwise but honestly preferred the combat in Civilization V from what I played, despite finding that game inferior in almost every other way.

I've been slowly making my way through Fire Emblem: Geneaology of the Holy War. It's pretty good storywise, especially comparing to the more recent games. I like that it's not constant victories for your group. It's not bad, gameplay-wise. I like that units are really unique, but it can lead to some mistakes if you're even a little careless. Not that it's a huge deal for me, but the massive maps can be a pain in the ass, and waste time if you want to avoid risk.
It's a pretty game, and the OST is excellent.

I've never played Civ 4, only 3 and 5. 5 had good combat, but I feel like they should have allowed certain units get defensive units. Siege units in particular. I also didn't like cities having health and being quite capable on their own. I think cities should have had garrisons, starting with two units, and getting an additional slot for every fortification building the city has. Maybe my idea's stupid, I only ever play against bots after all.

What I liked about Civilization V is how it got rid of the stacks of doom and made the combat feel like a more traditional turn-based strategy game. I only played it a little bit before going back to IV and don't remember cities being independent all that well, but that does seem stupid. Civilization IV is easily my favorite game in the series, but I really hate the combat. Not even just the stacks of doom, but on top of that the fact that archers and artillery units don't have actual ranged attacks and are instead treated like special melee units.

I'm not sure how they could have fixed things, but maybe they could have given cities and such big defensive bonuses and be able to stack a certain amount of military units while everything else is limited to one.

It just sucks because I love the game other than the combat. I usually go for culture victories and love building up my borders, but it feels like a big chunk of the game is lacking for me. If they were able to pull off something similar to Advance Wars and somehow make it work without overwhelming the peacetime game aspects, I'd find it even better. As it stands now, I prefer II and III aesthetically, IV for the overwhelming majority of gameplay elements, and some of V's combat changes.

>I don't remember cities being independant all that well
Cities couldn't hold off on their own or anything against a real force, but it certainly makes it easy to ignore military altogether (with the unaggressive bots). Realistically, you could leave your cities undefended entirely in 5, so long as you don't get into a war with a neighbor. Worst case scenario you get attacked by a barbarian or some other miniscule force, but you could hold off a few turns for a unit to be built. Realistically, if any force entered a city without any sort of organized military, the city would surrender to avoid unnecessary casualties. It punishes aggressive players by slowing down their forces in a stupid way. It would encourage the stacks of death more, if they allowed it, instead you have to hold off until later when you get units that can move after combat and slowly move a huge mass of units that can efficiently conquer.
>archers and artillery units don't have actual ranged attacks
Yeah, that's pretty stupid. It makes it pretty much impossible to have archers act to support the melee units by thinning the enemy a bit, as they actually would. I do really like the proper ranged combat functions of Civ 5.
>I'm not sure how they could have fixed things
It's hard to balance it in a way that pleases everyone. You have people that only care about combat and people that hardly use the combat features. Personally I'm closer to the former, even if I prefer culture victories and the like. It keeps things from becoming stagnant, as opposed to taking the most efficient path through the tech tree.
All in all, they're fun games, and I like both 3 and 5. I realize it'd be impossible for them to make a game that does things perfectly because there's people that enjoy other aspects more. I like 3 more because it feels a lot less restricted that 5.

Despite playing it off and on since I was little, I finally beat GTA: San Andreas the other day. It was pretty fun, but the early part of the game is really the best. I like doing the gang shit, and wish that more games had you playing as a hoodlum. I guess game devs wouldn't know all that much about it though.

I followed Segata-San's advice, and decided to play a bunch of Sega Saturn games…
…the issue is that most of the time the games on it are bad ports of PS1 games and the good games being japanese only. I can't think of any games worth the system besides 5

many japanese import games can be played without knowing japanese. there are also fan translations of certain saturn originals, like the strategy/visual-novel/dating-sim game sakura taisen.

but based on your concerns, i would recommend the western release of saturn bomberman. it's a refined, purely 2d bomberman with 10-player (!) multiplayer support. it makes for a good party game, but you'll need to have two multitaps for ten-player support if you have an actual sega saturn.

(empty reply above is mine, i'm new to actually replying and not lurking and hit the wrong button, sorry)

recs:
Chuggaconroy - one of the oldest let's players, he has a lot of content for a lot of different games and it's very chill. in depth, 100% let's plays are his style.

masaeanela - a friend of chuggaconroy's. she does similar videos to him, also very comfy.

ningishu - this person specifically does terraria let's plays so if that isn't your thing you might not enjoy this one as much as i do haha. there's no voiceover, just on screen text, but the videos are really chill and fun to watch. they usually play through the game with some handicap that makes it way harder for them but really entertaining to watch.

ihascupquake - ok so her new videos are really… not so great imo, but her older videos are for the most part very chill. i recommend her minecraft beta and minecraft alpha let's plays, her very popular minecraft oasis let's play and also her sims let's plays (her original one she got rid of the playlist for but the vids are still up and someone else has probably made one, "island paradise" and "mystic creatures")

also this one's not a let's play per say, but a podcast. it's called retrograde amnesia. they do really in-depth (like 55 episode in depth) reviews of old jrpgs. so far they've done xenogears and are about halfway through chrono cross. next they're gonna do final fantasy 8 i hear.

anyway maybe this was a bit too much? hopefully at least one of these will appeal to you, friend :)

I like Star Fox 64 more in terms of gameplay, but I find the original game more aesthetically pleasing. I prefer Space Harrier to either in terms of gameplay, although I only first played that as an adult and so don't really have nostalgia for it.

I feel that. I've spent my whole life keeping my hands busy. I'm either typing, scrolling, mousing, drawing, twiddling my thumbs with a game controller, or playing guitar. There have been a couple times when really severe wrist pain set in for an extended period of time. I was even told that I might expect the condition to be permanent. That shook me, but I tried to maintain my optimism. Anyway, after taking breaks from all that, it cleared up. Taking a break from what I'd gotten used to spending most of my time doing was almost as painful as the wrist pain itself, but it was necessary. Here's hoping you can rest up and recover friend.
