I put hundreds of hours in to the test tracks making a purpose built car. And I'd often move on to a new idea without barely ever actually using the car to accomplish anything. Back in the day, Mech Commander 2 was good for this. You could design your mechs, which was a lot of fun. Tinkering with heat sinks and space to get that optimal attack or tanking build was more fun than the actual story.

    Fallen Enchantress lets you design your own troops but so far that game has been terrible. Stardrive lets you design your own space ships and its a bit of fun, but I haven't been able to get in to it.

    Are there any games people really enjoy because it lets them tinker?
    i would say the tinker options are limited but World of Tanks will allow you to customize parts of your tank, new engines, suspension sytems, radio, guns, turrets, crew member skills etc. etc.

    but its a strictly pvp game and in order to buy these upgrades you gotta participate in battles.

    probably one of the best mmofps (if thats what you would call it) ive ever played. decent balance amongst the tiers and the community isnt garbage. id recommend this game to just about anyone, especially those who like pvp.

    There's another game like blade and soul... It's eluding me at the moment.
    I'll check out Dragon Nest, the 1v1 ranked pvp looks fun
    Age of Wushu, blade and soul, dont look to fun imo..

    I am looking for 2D games that were made within the last 5 years.

    I recently played Hammerwatch on the PC and loved it! Make a list of your favorite 2D games that I can play on the PC!

    Trine
    Trine 2
    Mark of the Ninja
    Limbo

    All exellent games
    Edit: I just saw the Hammerwatch video in your closed thread and would add

    The Story of Isaac
    Hotline Miami

    And this month "Shadowrun Returns" should be released.

    SotS is a RTS
    ES is a TBS

    So even if you don't mind differences in gameplay style they are kinda difficult to compare.

    SotS:
    + intuitive UI
    + combat depth
    -/+ decent pace to almost pass as TBS
    + diplomatic depth
    + logically tiered research with unique items
    + 3x2 factions with unique playstyle differences
    + all ships have unique abilities and they offer an array of playstyle choices
    + a lot of ships from scout, corvette, frigate, cruisers to capitals like battleships/-cruisers, titans and starbases
    + spectactular fights and visuals
    - not optimized for newer machines, it's a single-threaded 32 bit game but it should run fine on modern hardware
    -/+ economy is pretty typical for a RTS. It's solid though.
    - chokepoint-orientated gameplay may not suit everyone
    - AI can be pretty brutal if you are new to RTS genre
    - no campaign/visible backstory (it does exist though)

    ES:
    + customizable factions and ships
    + visuals are high-quality work
    + economy is more diverse...
    - ...yet in the long run also lacking depth as well
    - factions not balanced and mainly only distinguished by looks and traits
    - MtG'esque card based combat may not suit anyone especially with the lack of interactivity and depth given the added gamble may just turn into auto-combat bonanza
    + newbie-friendly...
    - ...however the game scales badly in difficulty as is
    + available on multiple platforms and supports multithreading/64bit
    - lack of depth in almost anything

    In general I don't have much positive to say about Endless Space but since we are comparing apples and pears I think it primarily on what gameplay genre you prefer and then how much emphasis you are putting on depth especially in regards of combat.

    Im in need of a few suggestions (bored:P)

    Ok, first one then... MMO.

    Something I can invest in, has strong veteran benefits, emphasis on player interaction, preferably with lots of sandbox elements and as few freebies as possible. Also needs to be an AAA title and good visuals as well as decent player base would be a plus. It could also be an upcoming game as long as it will be released in a year or so. Oh and it needs to be a RPG, so no shooters or games without levels and such.

    Then some city building or similar game like Tropico 4, Simcity and Anno 2070. Good graphics and deep gameplay would be a huge plus here. Can also be upcoming as soon as it will be released relatively soon.

    And finally something with amazing atmosphere and graphics, doesn't really matter what genre as long as it's not sports or puzzle game. I'm thinking something like Bioshock Infinite, Mass Effect games, Dragon Age, Skyrim.. can also be upcoming game as long as it will be released this summer.

    Thanks.. has it changed then? I tried it when it came out and it was just boring and pointless. All those collect x and kill x quests. It didn't exactly have any sandbox elements back them. And more importantly is socializing with other players needed there (as in rewarded instead of just possible) and do players who put more time and effort into it actually get practical rewards or is it more like WoW when they just pass out the best stuff to everyone after a few months and maybe you get a silly hat or a new title if you try really hard?

    Are there any MMOs you tried already? There are quite a few good ones out there, so it would help to know which ones you tried and liked, and which ones you didn't.

    Good question..

    Well, I used to like WoW a lot, before Cata anyway but eventually got bored. Then Runescape, I liked the general idea behind the game and it's amazing time killer but the social part there isn't very strong and the graphics and controls leave a lot to wish for. Then LoL, even though not a real MMO was really fun, I still play it occasionally. Guess I haven't tried many more worth mentioning.

    I didn't like Rift. Too many theme park elements, too grindy(I like grindy when there is a real reward at the end but not grinding for the sake of grinding), combat was weird and poorly defined, player interaction wasn't important etc. I kinda liked the talents though. Then LotR online, while not a bad game, just wasn't for me, also too linear, too many killx and fetch x quests, no PvP. I played it for a while but got bored fast. I also tried a few of those Asian ones like Tera but the flashy combat and especially clothes female characters have there bothered me enough to turn me away from those games completely.

    To sum it up, I guess I liked

    Good community, focus on socializing with other players, less automation.
    Being rewarded for effort or time put into the game
    PvP where the game doesnt hold your hand
    More sandbox elements

    and didnt like

    boring grindy quests and activities with no real rewards
    being able to solo almost everything (includes all the queues etc. too where you dont have to actually talk or cooperate with others and everyone just does their thing in silence)
    Too much focus on the boring/repetitive aspects of PvE
    No world PvP or very limited PvP where the game holds your hand too much
    Best gear handed to everyone or buy to win
    Bad or ridiculous story

    Hello,
    I am looking for a complicated and long RPG.
    One of my favorite games is Fallout 2. Something around that or TOEE / old neverwinter / baldur`s gate / septera core? Are there any new-er games that would fit ?
    I did not play the Witcher series. Would you recommend them to some one that likes the above?

    Thank you for your time.

    Me and my friend are looking for some game we could play together, but there are a couple of problems. The main one is that there are some financial problems, so we really need something F2P or something that works over lan. The other problem is that I will be stuck on a rather underpowered laptop for most of the summer (visiting parents) so it can't really be that demanding. We already went through a lot of games and kinda found out that moba and most mmos don't really work (maybe is it's a really different mmo, but not your average F2P kind). Also ruled out things like Minecraft, Terraria, Arma, Killing Floor and DDO, they just did not stick. Suggestions anyone?

    Mass Effect, but be warned, 3d one is really heavy on shooter stuff and have almost no gear progression. Also Skyrim, not that complicated but sure is HUGE. Especially since the legendary edition is out. Or mount and blade (Warband), a bit old, but sucks up time big time, especially if you go for mods. There's been really dry season for cRPGs so apart from Bioware stuff there's little to have.

    Have you tried DDO? It's a really different experience from what you get in your normal MMO and there's definitely no handholding anywhere in sight. Be prepared to remake chars like crazy though and read a lot of guides.

    games i have played

    WoW
    Gw2
    Rift
    Tera
    Torchlight 2
    Diablo 3
    Morrowind 3 (couldn't get into anything after them)

    It goes open beta on July 9th, but if you post in the megathread, someone will get you a key. If you get a key, you can get the closed beta testers only bike with relative ease. It's going to go away when it goes open beta.

    (I'd give you one right now, but I am out)
