I just played it about 20 minutes ago, was browsing saw skylanders spyros adventure for pc, but giants was nice because, of well, giants...

    Was curious if there was anything like it for the pc? I know disney infinity is possibly coming to PC, but no confirmation is given yet and swap force to my knowledge is not coming to pc.


    If theres nothing similar to it, what are the major differences between spyro's adventure & giants besides the fact of the giants characters.
    Diablo III is similar in gameplay mechanics, but it's definitely more gory and violent.

    I guess I should've said this. I was looking for something with the whole character/swap mechanic. Its a rare & new mechanic in gaming. I do have d3 for the record, and absolutely still <3 it after a year. I did notice immediately though it felt like playing d3 in a kid version. I liked how you could open this area with a nature type character.

    Anyways, more ideas?

    Diablo 3.
    Path of Exile (DEFINITELY should keep tabs on that).
    FATE

    Disney Infiniti (similar to the toy idea, not in gameplay).

    Giant in Skylanders only do a bit more damage and are used to finish Giant-only puzzles.

    I appreciate the suggestions, in fact I haven't heard about FATE in a long time, but you didn't identify the fact I wanted something similar to swapping characters like in skylanders/infinity.

    A few ground rules need to be laid out to cut down on the static and keep the focus on the purpose of this thread.
    • Be specific as to what you're looking for in a game.
    • When suggesting a game, try to include a link to its dedicated thread.
    • Don't insult or call into question someone else's questions or answers; we all have different tastes here.
    • Do not embed videos or large pictures. Links only, please.
    • Quote the person you're responding to. If the thread gets busy, things can get confusing.
    • Be open to new things. Your favorite game could be the one you've never heard of or thought you'd like.
    • As always, please keep the conversation civil and constructive!

    ------------------------------

    All I see now are violent games where you shoot this or kill that, and to be honest I get bored with it very fast.
    So I was hoping to get some tips on non-violent games, like indie games, side-scrollers, adventure games, management games or RTS games like The Settlers would also be fun.

    I own Trine 1 & 2, Portal 1 & 2 and Psychonauts (not quite non-violent but far from violent anyway).

    Any tips for a game you think might fit into what I'm looking for? I know others might be interested as well, so let's see what we can gather up.
    I can warmly recommend one of my favorite games, wurm online. It is really popular as a family game and very light on the violence. You can play it straight as a farming simulator, builder, creativity or terraforming game. It is sandbox so it is what you want to make it more or less and has the features and functionality to support it

    Not looking to play Diablo...something different preferably. He's in NH and I'm in Florida...but we get tired of duoQ in League of Legends and just wanna go smash some shit and collect loot...like old school Champions of Norrath or Baldur's Gate style.

    Age of game doesn't matter.

    edit: is Din's Curse any good?

    Thanks in advance!

    Warhammer Online or Rift?

    I want to try one of these 2 games - Warhammer Online or Rift but I'm not sure which one I should play. I've heard PvP in Warhammer Online is amazing - how does it look in Rift? Which game have a better PvE?

    Just tell me which game I should try first

    Warhammer is closing. FFXIV is decent.

    Rift is the game of the lords in pve. If I loved pve and some good raiding going on and grinding for those epic items... I would dedicate my raiding schedule to Rift =)
    However, I dont pve these days... havent got it in my blood... and dont have time to raid regulary :P But Rift is still on computer for a random warfront every now and then, the soul system in game is amazing.
    Your lord is under attack! Your lord is under attack!

    Rift is a far better game than Warhammer online. Exhibit A. Warhammer is closing down.

    I would go Final Fantasy 14 a realm reborn over Rift tho.

    Rift has some of the best PVE out there with one of the best payment models out there.

    Warhammer, on the other hand, is dead.
    (Like, not "lol didn't kill wow" dead but like, they are shutting down the game dead)
    Lv30 (Warframe) - Zephyr - Boltor Prime - Lex Prime - Dakra Prime - Hunter -
    Lv40 (Firefall) All Battleframes
    Lv60 (Neverwinter) - Rogue - Fighter - Wizard - Guardian - Cleric -

    I was just thinking that. Well, given the options I'm going to have to go with Rift. If you had asked this yesterday I would have still told you Rift. Probably good since Warhammer is finally closing....4 years too late.

    Warhammer is dead - servers all closing Dec 18th

    Rift is way too grindy. I would personally try Dragon's Prophet, Firefall or even Guild Wars 2 - I am gonna buy FF14 this week.

    If you don't like grinds, don't get FFXIV. You are going to hate it. Just leveling your class properly is more of a grind than Rift will ever be. Imagine Rift except you have to level your souls individually and then you run out of quests and have to just kill mobs and do Rift Events/Invasions. That's pretty much FFXIV leveling.

    I love the game, but if the grind is your big thing...don't buy it.

    Rift isn't that grindy except for SL rep grinds. IA + exp boots = 50 in no time. 50-60 on the other hand... Well, that's a bit of a hike. But I wouldn't call it a crazy grind.

    I want to play a MUD

    Anyone got a MUD recommendation? I've never played one my self, so something easy and with some users.

    (did a basic search for this thread and couldn't find one.)

    Multi User Dungeon. Sort of a precursor to MMOs, but with text instead of graphics. Google would be your friend here.

    I don't know exactly but generally my definition is a multiplier text based game.
