Post what you're looking for in a game, others make recommendations.

Also, feel free to just recommend some of your personal favorites!

Have a lot of shit going on in my life right now, looking for a game to help take my mind of my troubles.

I want a game that is lighthearted and fun, while still being immersive and compelling.

Something with an original story and cool characters, that doesn't involve too much monotony such as level grinding (a little is okay, but would prefer this to not be a significant aspect of the game).
It can be campy or wacky or silly, or it can be a little more on the serious side. I just don't want anything dark or grim or anything like that. (got enough of that already lol)
I want something light and fun!

What do you guys recommend?

Console RPGs with plenty of classes, customizable stats, loot and equipment to sperg and OCD over. Japanese console games because the PC RPGs are all obvious choices I've most likely played. Something like Diablo or Shining Soul, most Japanese ARPGs don't have many RPG elements aside from "your health bar grows a little when you level up" though if a classic turn-based JRPG that fits the requirements exists that's fine too. The older the better, SNES-era preferred but I can look into any suggestions.

Same game with load times and an even worse translation (Wyvern > Y Burn. Yes really). FFV in general is an amazing game that has perfected turn-based JRPG gameplay with its deep and diverse job and ability system. However PS1 is not the version you'd like to play. GBA is probably the best.

Looking for two things.

1.) Something challenging and action-oriented that is very easy to pick up and play and has no complex aspects that require a tutorial or something. Preferably something with platforming. Think Mega Man or Darkwing Duck, but I'm looking for good obscure examples that I probably haven't played.

2.) A good score-oriented arcade game. I like action and shooting. I don't want to worry about 'beating it', I just want something that can be picked up and played whenever without worrying about the progress you make.

Hi, I'm looking for relaxing, but strongly emotional games. I'm on a PS1 binge currently, so games for that platform would be the most appreciated, although not limited to.

Anyone happens to know games that have a kind fo weird atmosphere, eerie (?), but NOT horror ? I don't like being afraid, just having the chills, something "lightly" creepy. I struggle to find games with the adequate settings, because they are either complete horror games, or not at all. I love that feel and it works best with older games as they are not-so detailed and let you imagine much easier.

themes: loneliness, dreams, fake or abandoned or ending world/reality, death, mirages..

For example think about Majora's Mask, or maybe Yume Nikki, even some parts of metroid prime when you get to read reports from dead soldiers, and the feeling of loneliness on the deserted planet (not retros sorry, just to illustrate).

Yeah, I wish they would get some editors or at least some proofreaders too.

>There are five different endings of the chief bitching you out for the usual accidental mass destruction. The ending you get is entirely dependent on your shooting accuracy. The game stores the amount of times you fire a bullet and the number of bullets that hit an enemy. The number of enemies hit and the number of bullets fired are divided by each other and then multiplied by a hundred. That accuracy percentage is then compared to five threshold percentages which decide which ending you get.

People probably think that's wrong due to the cutscenes and forced dialogues, but the game has pure video game storytelling too, as you have to find info by yourself (search for info, talk to NPCs, etc) and put 2 and 2 together (which is why most people who played the game didn't understand the story).

Lately I haven't been able to get into any game, new or old, and I'm not sure if I'm just...growing out of it or if I'm just in a rut.

I'd like a game with strong character development, one I really can't put down its characters, or the story, will have me by the edge of my seat the entire time. I prefer RPGs, but I'm good with pretty much anything except Sports games.

The only games I've finished lately are Terranigma and one of the Layton games. I got a fair bit into DQ3, but the lack of anything resembling a story turned me off.
