Your Top Favourite Single Player Games

I also love black isle’s icewind dale 1 and 2, but if i had to compare planescape to it i would say that planescape is more interesting game. Icewind dale have better soundtrack though.



#62

I’d say Icewind Dale has more options in combat and character creation, but Planescape has characters and story.


#63

c’mon whip your friends

I used to play some fun noncommital flash games like armed with wings and some wizard game on kongregate with some surprisingly insane depth, such as like 5 different op weapons hidden in hard mode levels and like tons of easter egg rooms in the sky of the final boss level. (Also handcuffs)

Kinky af.

I need to pick-up spelunky, been needing to pick up more rouge likes.


#65

Well iwd is like a Dungeon crawler with the infinity engine but basically got no story or deep dialogues. The 2 was particularly interesting cause it had the d&d 3rd edition ruleset though, which was way better than ad&d 2nd edition imho

I heared icewind gets extremely tedious towards the end…
Spent 5 minutes buffing your party up before every encounter,do the encounter,rest,buff up again…

i need to check if the Snake Eater disc i borrowed and the PS2 Slim we have still works, then maybe i can play it after i finish my backlogs lol

i also have Peace Walker for the PSP but have yet to finish it since the device is with my sister


#69

I dunno, I never finished it :slight_smile:

Roguelikes often require strategy and tactic too,just on a smaller scale
That is not neccesary bad because large scale often brings tons of micro and tedious elements with it


#71

That’s why I prefer tactical games to full scale strategies.

In no particular order:

Advance Wars DS: I feel like this is the most ‘complete’ version of the game with tons of maps, big campaign, all the COs and even a fun side mode. One of the best Turn-Based Strategy games I feel.

Bayonetta: I’m not a big fan of hack and slash action games, so when I say this game is amazing and nails it, I mean it. It helps that the story and characters are fun and bombastic, but the combat is damn well spot-on.

Okami: Beautiful, and beautifully engaging. Zelda for if you don’t own a Nintendo console. speaking of which:

Zelda, Wind Waker: I’ll just pick one, Wind Waker is really great and I enjoyed the freedom of sailing about, though this could easily be almost any other Zelda title.

The World Ends With You (DS): Awesome sound track and an interesting story, especially for a younger me. The DS version did something really unique with it’s combat where you have to simultaneously play 2 games at once, and it felt fantastic to get good at.

Hollow Knight: Not sure if recency bias, but I’ve been playing this game recently and it’s gorgeous & atmospheric in it’s world, but sharp and challenging in it’s mechanics.

Bioshock: great story and incredible atmosphere, first time I realised that stories in games could actually weave in the interactive medium.

Portal: short and sweet, we all know it’s great.

This isn’t an exhaustive list of my favorite games, but it’s the top ones that came to mind right first. I could easily add stuff like metroid prime, pikmin, fire emblem, half life, shadow of the colossus, persona, mass effect, limbo, monkey island, mario 64, pokemon… yeah I could go on all day.

Quite true, Rougelikes do need tactics if you want to live farther than the first village.

I would still recommend Qud over ADOM unless you want a game with an actual ending because Qud doesn’t have an ending yet since it is still in development while ADOM has multiple endings.

Although tat said ADOM is also a good game, it’s just much harder on new players than Qud is. Items with no ingame description as to what they do, many hidden game mechanics and newb-trap quests are all things that don’t bother you much when you know about all of them, but to a new player they can be very frustrating.
