Title: Game suggestions
Post by: Prpl_Mage on November 18, 2017, 04:06:07 AM
Black friday is coming up and I am simply assuming that Steam will have some sort of sale like all other online stores. Do you have any suggestions on games that might be worth getting? I recently got Destiny 2 but I'm kinda sick of it already so me and my buddies will probably need a new multiplayer game soon enough.

None of these are really multiplayer games though. Divinity 2 is probably really fun in multiplayer, been wanting to play it but haven't gotten around to it yet.

I'm going to second the recommendations for Doom, Wolfenstein, and Divinity 2. Well, I don't actually own Divinity 2, but I've seen and heard enough about it to know that it's a great followup to the previous game, which was the best RPG in that style that I've played in years. It has 4-player drop-in/drop-out co-op, so you and the boys can get a party going. I would also suggest Unepic, as it's already a pretty affordable game ($13 right now). It's basically one part action RPG, one part Metroidvania. It has co-op, but it's made up of separate missions and isn't the one continuous quest that the single player is. It's pretty great, actually. And if you haven't played it already, Rainbow Six: Siege is a wonderful multiplayer shooter that basically takes the Counter-Strike formula and actually updates it so that you're not just playing the same 16-year-old game. I like it a lot, but I find it harder to play without friends (I don't have any friends). Speaking of friends, I've been climbing the ranked ladder with a couple of random dudes who I loosely associate with and maybe went to high school alongside them. If you somehow haven't played Rocket League yet (though I'm sure you have), you might want to do yourself a favor already.

Steamworld: Dig 2? Or Dig 1? Or Steamworld: Heist? The Steamworld series is excellent.

Nintendo games never go on sale, but I'm having a lot of fun with Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild. I grabbed Splatoon 2, it's a lot like the first.

Oh oh, if you have a 3DS or Switch, grab Might Gunvolt Burst, it's really good and only $10. It's essentially a Megaman game, where instead of getting weapons from bosses, you pick up hidden gun modifiers that alter the way your gun works. For example you could make a gun that spreadshots 5 bullets that explode into smaller bullets with rapid fire, or a shield that pierces terrain and enemies with x3 damage, and just walk into everything to kill it. With the DLC there are 5 characters that all play a little differently too. It's short but I've already played through 3 times just because it's so much fun.

Speaking of which, they are on sale at the moment

Buy 'em. If you think Terraria could benefit from having a little more structure in its story, those games are great. Except for Heist, which is more like Worms mixed with X-Com.

Anyone played Absolver? Is it worth 20 euros?

Dota 2 is free if you can get over the 2000-hour learning curve and horribly toxic community. Most depth and fun I've ever had with a game.

I'm more of a League of Legends guy, but I can strongly recommend Heroes of the Storm as a more accessible MOBA with a simpler learning curve. But perhaps we're getting off-track a little.

I think it's safe to say that getting a bit off track is fine these days.

More of a HotS person myself, but mostly because I can't justify 30-50 minute games as in DotA 2 anymore. I used to play Dota2 back in the days, put 500 hours into it and was pretty okay, but when the dudes moved to other games I just couldn't stand randoms and quit. It's easier in Heroes of the storm since even if you are playing with nooby idiots or stupid idiots the is over soon and you can just breathe out.
Never tried LoL though, only seemed like a teenage friendly version of Dota2, and it wasn't helped by the fact that my students all played it. Faster gameplay, less complexity but still more advanced than heroes of the storm.

Alternatively, if you want to actually have fun, don't play a MOBA at all.

I'm inclined to agree :D
