Video Game Recommendations

Hello! I thought I’d make this topic so that people can recommend games that they’ve been playing to others, if they’re struggling to find something enjoyable to play or if they simply want a new experience. I hope this thread is useful to someone!

My Recommendation!

I’ll share a game first that I’ve been having a lot of fun playing recently, and because of the nature of these forums I think a some of you might really enjoy the concept too. It’s an early-access game called The Fermi Paradox, based around the famous paradox with the same name. You play as an abstract, god-like entity, guiding civilizations through the ages and trying to save them from the ever-looming threat of extinction. You will have to weaken some of your civilizations in the short-term term to build up enough Synthesis, the game’s resource, to save them from worse threats, such as the possibility of a deadly global pandemic in the Nautical Age, or a nuclear war. Your long-term goal is for these civilizations to make contact with one-another, but the massive travel times between worlds will make this quite difficult. Will your civilizations create a FTL communications network to co-exist, or will their attempt to build a warp-gate network across the galaxy end in tragedy? It’s a really fun game, and I really like the concept!

Haven’t seen this game mentioned so here
I really recommend that yall play Thrive
Its a free open source game about evolution
Where you evolve your species from the lowly tidepools of an alien planet and turn it into a thriving space empire
Right now its still in the early phase of development, so dont expect much from the current version
You can get it from the dev website
Or you can buy it from steam to donate some money to the project
There’s also the option of becoming a patron on their patrein

I’d reccomend a game called aground!
Its demo is free, and you can find the full game on steam or other places

its a 2d survival story based game with different paths you can choose, or even both!

Funfact: Among Us Steam version can be played on MacOS via PlayOnMac. It works perfectly.

And we love Niko owo
