I wanted to make one of those images charts that have a collection of recommended games in them, and I wanted to make it about the games that 420chan's /vg/ recommends.

Pls write down a list of the games that you consider to be essential. And please be honest with the list, don't go putting games in there that you don't even like that much and are super praised just to get brownie points (taste signaling?). Don't be afraid to put modern games you love in the list.

/vg/ is surprisingly not monolithic in what games it likes so you're going to get a lot of games on the list that some people think are great that others think are dogshit (especially when four recommends games). The only game I can think of that would be universally /vg/ "recommended" is Morrowind. So with that being said add Morrowind.

Doom, Terraria, and Morrowind are the only games I think there's anything even remotely resembling a universal positive consensus here.

Doesn't have to be that way. We can all agree Morrowind is ought to be on the list, so does the first Dark Souls 1. There are some games we can all agree on.

But I feel like if this is going to be a 420chan list, it ought to be full of games that are great, especially when you're high on all kinds of drugs. That kind of list can be highly subjective. I personally love Oblivion while on weed but I can understand why some might not feel that way.

imo it should be done by consensus of the thread as it evolves period, otherwise give each post the ability to vote for one or two games it Doesn't think should be on the list & cap the number of games each post can reccomend

Meh, this is already getting dumb. There's not really anything unique about what we consider essential and what pretty much every other imageboard or forum does too. It would make more sense to only nominate games or levels where drugs are used as a central mechanic or gimmick like MJ & Keef, Touch Fuzzy Get Duzzy, Weed Farmer Sim, etc.

Left 4 Dead (1 and 2) is timeless, simple but deep. Insanely replayable. Fun at a low skill level and a high skill level.

I was joking about Fallout: New Vegas, I've never played it. I just remember some guy here used to spam like the crucifixion or skinning mods on here all the time.

You should. It's quite janky, but its probably the last entertaining Fallout.

seconded. I'm doing a "death stranding" run right now where I basically pick up everything and just walk around overencumbered all the time. There is not enough money in the world economy to buy all of my shit. Also I use the post office boxes to move even vaster quantities of random shit all over the map.

Now that I have all this shit, I've actually been making ample use of the crafting system... of course that means that I just have more money because I never have to spend money because I just craft all my shit from all the random shit that I have.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R is probably the game that has had the most threads dedicated to it, so it should definitely be on there.
I´ve never played minecraft or dwarf fortress, but those games where talked about a lot here as well.

It´s been a while since I´ve played new vegas, but did anyone eventually got around to making a crucifixion mod?

Yeah there is a crucifixion mod out there. Someone linked a thread about a long time ago.

Ocarina of Time is wayyy better than BotW though. this isn't even nostalgia talking, I played the 3DS game for the first time only three years ago. It's a masterpiece.
Ulala - Mon, 19 Oct 2020 14:20:37 EST rweTaUas No.757043 Reply
I disagree, Ocarina is clunky as fuck and stupidly linear. Breath of Wild, breaks alll of those boundaries, and mixes it up. Granted their are only mini dungeons, but are still fun to do, I would think thats the only draw back

The 3DS remake fixes a lot of the things that made the original clunky.

Also I'm fucking sick of people using "linear" as a de facto con. Linearity isn't always a bad thing, especially if you're trying to tell a compelling, well paced story, which OOT and MM excelled at. I loved BotW too, but the pacing and story was heavily compromised by the less linear structure. OOT and MM wouldn't have been improved by letting you tackle the dungeons in any order.

it is tho, because all of those dungeon special items can by use in certain dungeons and thats it as appose to Breath of the Wild. Not saying OOT is bad, I love that game after your pretty much done with every dungeon thats all you can do, but I honestly BoTW, is better, due to the map size and amount of crazy shit post game you can do.

So the tradeoff is in BOTW you just don't get any items except the few you start with. Wonderful.
Kratos - Mon, 19 Oct 2020 19:10:11 EST BJtLvEfC No.757055 Reply
You couldn't be more wrong. BOTW chews through your items and constantly replaces them. The vital puzzle solving toys are all available by the end of the tutorial but you still get a lot of upgrades to your capabilities. Upgrades stack rather than obsolete each other, again barring weapons which are disposable, except one particular one (you probably can't guess unless you're willing to stop pretending to be a contrary moron). The difficulty is not uniform and some stuff is dark souls hard if you do it fresh out the tutorial zone. There is no fixed order to the bosses.

As for actual reccommendations I feel like I'd clump them depending what you want to do. Most of the games I most love are not ones I'd universally recommend to anyone but with the right taste I know a lot of people who'd jizz buckets and buckets for them.

I enjoyed BOTW but I might be the only person who felt that actually I was frequently punished for trying shit. Stuff like using all my cold resistance dishes to find a dragon in buttfuck nowhere, Thinking "aha I did it" then realising I needed to chase the thing but was out of cold dishes so I'd spent 30 minutes and achieved nothing and it was better to reload because I'd found no rare items. That happened a few times. Some bosses where I'd have to hack through the first phase a few times to try various ways to solve the problem or I had tried the right solution but not done it quite right stuff like that. That actually made me stop for the day a few times. I think a few extra unlockable teleports would have fixed quite a lot of that. The dungeons were cool puzzles though.

I've never played it myself but Crusader Kings games usually get a lot of attention on this board.

Games I'd nominate myself would be Subnautica and Monster Hunter World.
