What game should Greg play?

Post by SirMarth01 » Fri Apr 29, 2016 12:17 pm

Greg's letting us choose what game he's going to stream next Friday! Note that it must be at least somewhat relevant to Consortium, so immersive sims, or at least heavily story-driven games are the most likely candidates.

Played so far:
- Consortium Game One (obviously!)
- The Witcher 3

Jazzpunk!

More serious: Mass Effect or Mass Effect 3 (Mass Effect 2 is blasphemous).

Another suggestion: whatever game drew Greg to Jeremy Soule (please say Morrowind because Morrowind music is epic).

ME is a good choice! I hope polls are enabled so the top few games can be voted on near the next Friday.

When creating a NEW topic, there is a way to have a poll in these forums. Down below when doing so, click the Poll tab. So... poll is possible!

I can edit in a poll, as well, but then we still need options to put into the poll, so need some suggestions. I might edit in a poll closer to next Friday, to help decide.

Yep, wait a couple days to get whatever suggestions emerge, then go ahead and make a poll - once the poll is up we'll use our social networks to try and get more folks to vote! :-)
Do, or do not. There is no try.

So, one option: we JUST received our Kickstarter backer edition of the Oculus Rift, and I've been dying to play VR Adr1ft - perhaps I could stream myself doing that?

Definitely either DX1 or Adrift, Greg. System Shock 2's an honorable mention especially for the intro character gen.

Pretty much any Looking Glass games for more recent games maybe Age of Decadence or Stories - The Path of Destinies. In Stories you play through multiple times with the a hand full of choices through each playthrough with the knowledge gained opening alternative paths. Its very limited but quite nice.

Dishonored would be a good choice I think, if you do prefix it by telling Bethesda to get it on GOG so I can play it too.

Deus Ex or a Bioware game like the Mass Effect or Dragon Age series (maybe even KOTOR)!

-Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow -> Blacklist
-Deus Ex Human Revolution -> The Fall
-Batman Arkham Asylum -> Arkham Knight
-Crysis -> 3
-Hitman -> well...Hitman XD

It's a better game playing sneaky but sneaky = loading checkpoints = not great for live streaming. The similarities are certainly obvious though, no?
