Comfy vidya thread Anon 06/27/2020 (Sat) 15:23:10 No.1760
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).
Holy ship, I love Crazy Taxi, good post OP. Personally I think Kirby is essential /comfy/. The nature of the game is pretty lightweight and only becomes slightly harder when you try to 100% it. A shame that emulating them sometimes is impossible (Kirby 64 crashes in some mid bosses for example)
I mean exploration games like Minecraft, Subnautica etc. are really calming for me because It feels good doing things

I've recently been spending my evenings fused with my couch, playing Kingdom Hearts. Sometimes you have to tryhard, but aside from that I'm really enjoying it. >>1765 Seconded, Meinkraft and Subnautica are the vidya equivalent of melatonin (especially the latter one with its Solar Fields-like soundtrack).

The Tony Hawk games are all still fun after years of playing them through. The comfiest part is cruising through the levels enjoying the fun music.

Driving games can always be considered /comfy/ They don't ask too much but at the same time you have to not be a bumbling retard. My only issue is that I seem to be stuck with the most formulaic and basic ones. Things like Wipeout or Asseto Corsa are more complicated for me when I just want to be chillin
>>1760 >>1765 Simulator games in general. In another thread someone mentioned Rollercoaster Tycoon, that was comfy. >>1780 >pic 5 Good taste, the City Lights add-on track is top comfy.
>>1780 >Diddy Kong Racing The music alone is just so comfy.

I'm a big guy 4 RTS games. They're my favorite genre by far. I really like tile-based puzzle games too. I also like early first-person shooters and older arcade-style action games, but those make me feel more tense than anything. As far as console games go, I mostly stick with the older ones I grew up with and ones I never got around to playing. The NES is the console I find the most relaxing.
Interesting, i was about to make a vidya thread yesterday. My favorites are deadbolt and rainworld. Soothing soundtrack and comfy atmosphere, highly recommended.
>>1787 SMW is nice up till now i've still yet to complete all the stages :P
To me there's nothing comfier than sinking in my bed sheets and playing some of those game that are like halfway in between a vn and a puzzle game. I miss my Ds

>>2882 It's a game that's close to me heart, even though I never play it by myself anymore. It was the first Super Nintendo game I ever played and is probably the Mario game I feel most nostalgic for after the original (although it's hard to pick). The last time I played I had trouble with all the special stages, even though I think I beat them when I was younger and have no problems with the other ones. As a kid, the Soda Lake level was the only one I remember standing out as one me and my brother had never gotten to because it's the only stage that has those submarine enemies that are featured in the end-game sequence where all the enemies are listed.
>>2884 The DS and (maybe 3DS, I didn't have one) were underrated.
>>1787 NES games are so hard that I am curious how you find them relaxing. >>2886 They both had good stuff but they hurt to play for long periods of time as an adult.
>>2886 I don't know underrated but definitely one of the best handhelds >>2887 >they hurt to play for long periods of time as an adult That's true, that' s why I stuck with stuff you could play using only the touchscreen.

>>1780 the free racing game Nitronic Rush is still pretty good after like 8 years since its release. it was only a pity that it isn't openworld. https://youtu.be/vNuSvuzPL10?t=14

>>2887 >NES games are so hard that I am curious how you find them relaxing. Largely nostalgia for the aesthetic and the games themselves. I don't really like easy games either. People say that the original Castlevania is a hard game, for example, but I've beaten it like two or three times. A lot of the games aren't so hard once you start to recognize patterns and memorize things like level layouts. If I'm trying to beat a game, I usually just train myself with save states on an Everdrive to go through the difficult areas and then do a clean playthrough. I'm far from any kind of a pro. When I was younger, I don't think I cared that much if a game was too easy and really liked stuff like Kirby 64. Nowadays I can still appreciate that for its presentation and my memories of it, but as far as gameplay goes it's lost its appeal. I'm a lot more into challenges now.

>>2887 >NES games are so hard that I am curious how you find them relaxing. Not that anon but there are definitely a bunch of NES games you could say are relaxing once you get the hang of them, I always play Super Mario Bros 3, for example. >>2892 >People say that the original Castlevania is a hard game Castlevania 1 is 100% muscle memory, I beat it consistently in about an hour. Another game I always play when I have a few hours is the original Metroid, another game that can be berry frustrating if you don't know what to do but once you memorize the map you can just beat it over and over. There are also games which are frigging hard but I don't mind dying because they're so good, like Mr Gimmick

>>2894 >Castlevania 1 is 100% muscle memory, I beat it consistently in about an hour. Yeah, exactly. The hardest part is the final boss, but I can easily beat the game without much trouble now. >Another game I always play when I have a few hours is the original Metroid, another game that can be berry frustrating if you don't know what to do but once you memorize the map you can just beat it over and over. That's one I should play more at some point. I usually dislike Metroidvania-type games (other than Clash at Demonhead), but for some reason Metroid appeals to me. I think it's how spartan and somewhat creepy it feels relative to the other games in the series. >There are also games which are frigging hard but I don't mind dying because they're so good, like Mr Gimmick Don't remember how far I got in that one, but the soundtrack is good from what I remember.
>>1760 I've been playing Super Mario 64 on my DS which I'd say is pretty comfy. It's too bad I don't have the original version but the DS version is nice anyway.

the new Microsoft Flight Simulator is pretty comfy. They have an activity mode where you can fly bush routes in small planes, where all navigation is by landmarks and the flight plan is written like a guided tour of the region. It's got just the right balance between active and passive to be comf. I like getting up in the air, setting my trim, and then gazing out the window at the scenery going past as I find my way to the next flight leg.
>>2901 I love flying IRL the few times I've had the chance, and Flight Simulator looks pretty realistic tbh.
>>1780 can you name pic 3 and 5 anon?
>>2918 Not him but pic 5 is Super Tux Kart
