ITT we discuss video games that possess the comfy factor. For me it's all manners of RTS games, taking time to gather resources and build a cool base is great fun. Driving games are cool too, I have fond memories of pic related (although I was pretty bad at it as a kid).
>>1067 The reason why i play witha keyboard is i broke the ps controller while playing ds2.
Open file (131.49 KB 640x395 1535300699.jpg)
>>1069 While you were playing DS2 or because you were playing DS2?
>>1070 After wasting my life watching buff men i created die in stoopyest ways, i had a schizoid attack and broke the controller thinkingu was winning.
>>1071 Was it the hitboxes that got ya or was it the lack of invincibility during door opening animations?
>>1072 I think that was in the first giant area's bonfires door. Some skeletony thing comes and hits me while my fat lard tries to push the quacking door. It was horrible. I don't like games when they put restriction on my characters instead of making the enemies strong, i also don't like when games force me to be tryhard.
>>1069 find better games
No love for Stardew Valley? You escape your droll, work-a-day life to chill on a farm in the comfy Pelican Town. No rush, just grow your crops, make friends, fall in love, rebuild your community. It's great
>>964 Rather than exploration, i like to build and enhance my little comfy village in Minecraft, i can spend hours and hours

Just wanted to mention a new board >>>/valis/ is now open on the webring. It's a place about entertainment systems using video or rich visual mechanisms as feedback that may or may not have been put together by a few 8vg anons :^) Discussion can also range to saloon activities like cue games and card shuffling due to their social and classic nature in the ludic activities of people around the world. Having or remembering fun and sharing tips and tricks sounds like the goal, come visit sometime
>>1078 gaems
>>964 have you played Vintage Story? It has a stronger emphasis on voxel based crafting/forging rather than just building giant structures out of blocks It also looks a lot better with more realistic biomes and weather, exploring it feels a lot more meaningful than just the endless repetition of Minecraft worlds Also make sure you're using the most up-to-date survival expansion mods for vintage story, the base game is caca unless you mod it out the ass, trust me.
What are some comfy games to play with friends lads? An open-world game like Minecraft or Vintage Story (see post above) seems like a good idea, but I want something different. Maybe an RPG like FFXIV that one's really popular right now.
>>1081 I used to play valheim with a couple of guys and it sounds pretty sinilar to vintage story from what you're describing. I thought it was really comfy building a base and taming wolves or boars to have as pets.
>>1081 Divinity Original Sin 2, or similar party-based rpgs
>>1081 Breath of the Wild. It's such an easy game for me to just get lost in. In a good way ha.
>>1084 botw is probably the comfiest gaem I've ever played, I could just spend hours doing nothing, just screwing around in the map
>>1085 I used to do that in Morrowind.

https://smuglo.li/vg/res/10891.html >What is Veloren? Veloren is a FREE AND OPEN SOURCE spiritual successor to the short-lived Cube World. It uses similar combat mechanics to cube world, similar crafting mechanics to Valheim, exploration quirks like BoTW, and a minecraft aesthetic. It has both a third person and first person mode, and is all about running around as cute little cube people and murderhoboing your surroundings (or the villages). It is a community-led project that gets almost daily updates. Most importantly, it can run on potato PCs. The entire server uses about half a gig of RAM. The game can be obtained here: https://veloren.net/

>>1088 It seems you had quite a lot of fun on your minecraft run. Try spawning monsters and do a tower defence scenario.

god games are one of the comfiest genres imo doshin the giant is a nice shrimple one. i also love the aesthetic of populous: the beginning. recently i've been playing some modded minecraft
>>1090 >i also love the aesthetic of populous: the beginning. That's a highly underrated game. I just played a level from Undiscovered Worlds not that long ago, and the game popped into my head again today. Apparently there are still people playing multiplayer, but I've never tried it.
>>1091 yeah there's a decent little community that plays regularly at popre.net they have a matchmaking application, and there's another singleplayer version they have somewhere on there with some little extra patches etc
>>1088 reject modernity, embrace minecraft tradition anon.
i don't have a new game to recommend but i just bought a gamecube and luigi's mansion this weekend and i'm stoked
Monster hunter is great Going to the hub after killing monsters is crazy comfy and I always spend more time there than I should https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBBhBI_Tna4
>>1094 How much was it? Have you been enjoying it? I am thinking about getting one of these but I’m not sure I will use it when I have a nice gaming rig, a laptop, a phone and an iPad mini already.
>>1096 That's the Miyoo Mini right? Those Chinese handhelds are pretty good actually if you have a use case for them (lunchbreaks for instance). Something to consider with the Mini is that it's only about the size of a playing card, so cramping is likely to be an issue.
>>1097 Yeah it’s the Miyoo Mini. It does seem like cramping wood be an issue. I also don’t have any specific games in mind so I’ve been on the fence about getting one. Lunch breaks and playing out in the sun most likely. I don’t really like playing games on my phone for whatever reason. I sweat out of my hands more than anywhere else. I’ve already played through Pokémon back when I was able to run an emulator on my iPhone. Now I’ve already talked myself out of it lol.

Discovering Gun on PS2. It foreshadows what will be the Red Dead Redemption series. Besides the action phases it's bretty comfy. I like wandering in the lands on my horse.

Playing (again) Beyond Good & Evil. I think I'll buy an old Xbox to replay those classics of my younger years.
Just remembered the name of that snowboarding Xbox game I played younger : SSX On Tour. I see it runs on PCSX2 so I know what I will do in a short future. I remember the game had ice music and esthetic and was berry comfy. I turned of the music during the rides so I just listen to the noise of the snow under my bard.

Not all but some point & click are comfy. Currently playing Loom on ScumVM, I like a lot how you do the actions with the music. Once you learned the things it's bretty funny. Also I plan to replay Escape From Delirium, I discoverer it as a kid on a shareware compilation we had on the old computer. It have a nice atmosphere.

I find Monster Hunter World comfy Yeah the late game is hard, like any monster hunter (in fact this is probably the easiest game in the franchise) but whenever it gets too tough you can just go back to earlier levels and have fun, there are a ton of weapons and armors to craft and keep you busy, each weapon has an unique moveset so whenever you get bored of one you can try a new one, it's almost like you're playing a new game. Love the art direction, the monster design is great (although too many monsters look like generic dragons/wyverns for me) and the armors look cool as quack, also you can make layered armor that don't affect the stats of whatever you're using. Only downside is that sometimes I feel guilty killing monsters that are just minding their own business. My favorite monsters are Paolumu and Pukei-Pukei, they're just too cute.
Not working tonite, here I go for some good ol' Splinter Cell on PCSX2.
>>5011 >ScummVM Spy Fox in "Dry Cereal" was one I had fun with as a kid. Being a children's game, it's not exactly difficult though. I don't mind because I'm not good at adventure games. I see The Neverhood has ScummVM compatibility too, but I haven't tried it with that. I probably should at some point just because I remember the demo from when I was a kid.

Dunno why but flying bombers with glass canopies in WW2 flight sims has always appealed to my inner sense of comf. There's tense moments when you're over your target getting shot at by AA and trying to make sure you time your bomb drops just right but the before and after is just the right mix of nothing habbening but also not so little habbening that you're getting bored since you're still flying over enemy territory with a possible interceptor presence. Mix it with proper graphics and especially nice soothing engine audio and the landing approach after a successful mission becomes downright serene. This does however require something like a He-111 with both a nice big canopy and cockpit instrumentation placed out of the way so as not to obstruct the view, it's nowhere nearly as comfy with a conventional cockpit like a B-17 or even the Ju-88 which does have a bubble of sorts but the cockpit instrumentation blocks most of the lower view. >>967 >complex If you want somewhat more autistic comfy drivan I can recommend BeamNG, the game has a whole plethora of autism settings and customization but no set goals beyond what you pick/mod. I usually just spawn some AI traffic and drive around the nice countryside maps.

>>962 Well, allow me to participate... >Phoenotopia: Awakening Metroidvania that shrimply had no rights to be as good and comfy as it truned out to be. Nothing will able to tell you how this game is. Well, maybe some gameplay video, but I didn't try it. Either way, when it comes to comfy - this is peak comfy in my opinion. >Pine Someon calles it a poor man's Zelda, but I've never played any Zeldas, but I don't know. The game is the game itself is definitely in the middle grounds, a small title that is easy to criticize. But I think it is equally easy to concentrate on the good parts and enjoy it. If you launch and like it, then click your fantasy on and let it fill all the empty spots. My fantasy does work like that, so I've enjoyed the game and quite so. And if it doesn't work for you this way - well, just delete and forget. Kickstarter code is THANKS4BACKING - yep, just like that. >Princess Remedy There are two games: In A Heap Of Trouble and In A World Of Hurt. Both are bretty much the same thing. Cute, charming, small games. They pretend to be ZX Spectrum ones, which kinda works for me, because I actually usually play retro stuff. The biggest downside is that both games are short. If you want to go through them, I advice you to check walkthrough and search for anything related to the Jealous Chest if you wish to get 100% in your first try. >Cthulhu Saves The World Complete nonsense, yet surprisingly charming. Your typical JRPG. One of the few games I've completed two times, even if in different modes. There's also Cthulhu Saves Christmas, which is lore-wise a prequel, but technically is a sequel, hence it features pumped up graphics. It also has probably the best New Game + stuff I've ever seen. If you like me and hate New Game Pluses - well, this is one game where New Game + is, actually, not quite a New Game +, so don't skip it this time. >Symphonia Students' project. Berry beautiful. Criminally short. Should be available for free on itch.io and, perhaps, other places. Since it was never expected to be a full-fledged game, it lacks a lot of functionality: among other things, you can't change controls, which in this case is kinda severe because the game was made for the french layout of the keyboard rather than your typical WASD. It can be bypassed with AutoHotKey script (I've uploaded one on itch.io and it should still be in the comments), or by changing your layout to french one. >Sea Dogs series Or bretty much anything else where you can be a pirate, but I like Sea Dogs the most. Sea Dogs 2 especially has some beautiful storm graphics. These game have a community that is still active and provides a lot of mods, so if you are into age of sails, this might be just the thing. >King's Bounty: The Legend That's the only King's Bounty I've played, and I've liked it a lot. Really can't say what in particular was comfy about it, but... it was. The graphics were pleasantly bright, the dialogue was good, the character was awesome, you could marry a pirate girl... or some other girls, if you wish to. Yea, I need to try out later titles one day.

>>7704 Second post, so I can stick in some more screens. >Gemini Rue I feel like there should be at least one point'n'click in my list, and I choose this one. I guess, it is not berry comfy, since it is kind of detective mystery kind of stuff, but, hey, people above posted TES, and TES has all kinds of things, so I guess it fits in the end of the day. What striked me in this one is the ending. I've really liked it, liked the theme that the game played with and liked the thoughts it invoked and theories it proposed. Plus, the aforementioned ending was quite warm and comfy. Or so I think. Cannot really tell you anything else without spoilers. >Republic: The Revolution Once again, not sure if it can be qualified as comfy, since you gotta create a revolution, but something about this game just captivates. Maybe that's because I'm slav, so the whole aesthetic aspect of the game speaks to me. Still, the music, the graphics, the characters... It feel quite comfy to me. Finally, special shout out to all the guys who mentioned driving games in this thread. They work in the same way for me, especially if I can drive a muscle car, a chopper or a hot-rod. Ridge Racer? Yes. Need For Speed? Yes. Burnout? Yes. Forza Motorsport? Yes. Midnight Club? Yes. Give me an american machine and a road - and it will be comfy for me, no matter if it is a vehicular carnage, an arcade or a racing simulator. Some open world games work the same way for me - GTA or Saints Row, for example. But the top of the line, I guess, wood be >Watch Dogs Yep. The berry first one. I was surprised myself, given how much hate this game got at the time of the release. But I've actually tried it two years ago and I've liked it a lot. I've installed a Living City mod, and for the whole week it played like some kind of The Elder Scrolls game: I did not even touch the main plot. For a week I shrimply drove around Chicago on an old muscle car, making money by clearing out glove boxes of the cars on parking lots and then pawning the loot, spending those money drinking and playing poker. That was good. And, well, honorable mention to the The Elder Scrolls series, obviously. My favorite wood be Oblivion. I just liked the color pallette. I like bright colors.
