Video Game Recommendation Thread

Recommended Posts

We have all played many games in our time, and there are even more games we have never played.

 

Some of those games we played we wished others would too. We wish they got the chance to experience said game.

 

And with that I present you the Video Game Recommendation thread!! The notion is simple; write down in your comments a game you played and why you think others should play it(you will also include other information such as what platforms it is on, genres, etc)

 

I'll present you with a template, and then make an example!

 

You can also submit more than one game and you can even ask for recommendations as well!

 

Like games similar to Halo Wars? Then ask and hopefully other forum members will give their result!  

 

 

 

Recommending Template (Have a game you think people should play? Then follow the template.)

 

Click “Spoiler” to view template.

Name: "Game Title Goes Here"

 

Platforms: "Name the platforms it was released on"

 

Genre: "The genre(s) of the game"

 

Brief Description: “What is the game about?”

 

Similar to: “What other games are like this one? Is it Skyrim with guns?”  

 

Request Template (Want more games to play? Then follow this template!)

 

Click “Spoiler” to view template.

What kind of game do you want? “Do you want a Doom-Clone, RTS, 3rd Person Brawler?”

 

What platforms do you own? “That way people can give you recommendations that are platform specific”

 

What type of games do you like? “Maybe you love Arena Style FPS, but hate Simulation Style FPS. This is important in letting the recommender better decide what is best for you”

 

Remember that you don't have to follow the template! It is just there to help you :police: 

 

Now start recommending! (Also yes you can recommend the same game as someone else.)

Name: NeoTokyo 


 


Platforms:PC(as a free standalone mod on Steam)


 


Genre:  FPS


 


Brief Description: Two teams play in a round based CTG(Capture The Ghost aka CTF) game where one team either has to capture the ghost and take it to the retrieval point or eliminate the enemy team before the round timer is over. Friendly fire is always on and time to kill is fairly quick making teamwork essential for winning. You pick one of three classes all of which have minor differences from one another. Extremely rewarding slow paced FPS(although it has its intense moments) with a great small community. Plus it is a completely free steam mod you can play on steam. No micro-transactions or anything! 100% Free.

Name:Heroes of The Storm

platform:PC and maybe console?not to sure

Genre: MOBA

Brief description: In this PC mass player Battle Arena players form a team of 5 and battle for control of the map. Sometimes it is a all out battle to destroy the enemies towers and sometimes you have objectives you need to capture before being allowed to advance on the enemies towers.The Blizzard Universe comes crashing together in a unique new way. Creatures and heroes from game titles most have knowledge of such as StarCraft and Diablo as Well as the World Of WarCraft collide to bring a truly interesting game play only rivaled by Smite. The game is very easy and players are awesomely friendly. One of the best games I've gotten to play on PC that is free to play and download. Sure might take awhile to download depending on your internet speed and computer memory but inc you have it downloaded it will capture your heart in a simplified sense. Characters are designed very smoothly to ensure that your eyes are caught in all the glorious and hilarious mayhem that occurs. If I had to I'd give it a 8-10 stars just because of the fun.

Name: pokemon mystery dungeon: explorers of time/darkness/sky    


Platform: DS lite (you can also play it on 3DS 


Genre: RPG, rougelike


Brief Description:  The player assumes the role of a Pokémon that was transformed from a human and has gotten amnesia, found by the player's Pokémon partner in the start of the game. Before the game starts, the player will need to go through a personality test; this will decide which Pokémon the player is in the game (with the exception of the WiiWare games and Gates to Infinity, where the player may choose their starter). Gameplay is based on a classic roguelike game, with the player navigating the randomly generated dungeon with their Pokémon team. Movement and actions are turn-based; the player can use basic attacks, Pokémon moves, and items. The game starts with one partner Pokémon, but the player can recruit other Pokémon that they meet in the dungeon into their team soon after the first mission.
