Is there a comfier game?
I don't think so.
Yes, the music plays a huge part. You can't find better atmospheric music in a medieval fantasy setting than this:
>Is there a comfier game?
Seems someone hasn't played any of the Gothic games. Get lost, pleb.
Shit... this brings tear to my eye. When I was unexperienced greenhorn Argonian in the Cyrodiil. Exploring outside of Skingrad, talking with farmers and harvesting wine.
Quests? Nah, I was just using farmer clothes and everyday I woke up I was harvesting wine and living the farm life. When the dusk came, I went to Skingrad pub, came back home at night, went to sleep, wake up and started the field work again.
It's was so long time ago but feels like yesterday.
The musics are so fucking good.
Never played it, only Morrowind and Skyrim. Might be wrong here but I feel like this is one of those games I should have played when it came out...don't want to feel disappointed family, especially after the bad taste that FO4 left. But I did hear there were some cool missions.
>30 hours in realize the one of your major skills is useless and that you should have picked something else.
>Lose all motivation to play.
Arrrg why the fuck did I pick Alteration? I should have done Alchlemy instead. It's so much easier to level in a controlled fashion.
I wanted a fun build that I could dick around the game with, while using exploits and shit. I will already constant effect all my attriubutes to max level. I don't need alteration to improve my carry weight and breath underwater. Leveling itself is going to be a pain with alteration. It's not like alchemy, where you can dupe a billion things and make 5 skooma potions a second in the ingredients screen.
nah too much spooky woodwind bassoon or whatever shit to be comf.
Oblivion ost is whimsical and fluttery and heavenly
>thread makes you want to replay Oblivion
>remember all the mods you'd have to install to have a complete experience
The music alone is enough to tempt me to come back but no way in hell am I doing another second in vanilla Oblivion after doing 1000+ hours on the console version.
Yeah, the real pain is that you need to be in the arcane uni to do the glitching with the enchantments. There's literally no other way to get custom enchantments without doing that ridiculously long quest chain to get into the uni.
hold the FUCK UP op, you nerd, NOTHING beats
"Its Oblivion on steroids"
F4 is pretty comfy despite failing completely as a RPG
Im disgusted by how much time I spent building my island super fortress.
Then nothing ever attacked it
>tfw I'm literally playing this shit right now after spending over 20 hours in two worlds II
I wish dragon's dogma would just come out today and put me out of my misery
Played this first in year 8 7 years ago. I was a loser and sometimes would listen to the soundtrack and imagine what it would've been like if I were magically launched away into Nirn. The people there would've been nice to me, taken me in and allowed me to do small jobs for them across Cyrodiil, eventually getting enough money to live a comfy life in my house in Skingrad. My house would've been filled with pretty and valuable items such as elven daggers and glass swords. I'd eventually fall in love with a gorgeous elf and I'd be stronger, taller, and better looking than I was before and people would admire me for it.
I haven't played it in a while but I still think about those times whenever I hear the soundtrack.
Fallout 4 is not comfy at all. It feels shallow and empty.
Now,if you wanna talk comfy Fallout, let's talk about Fallout 2
Can you fall and break all your bones from there?
I've never played an elder scrolls game in my life. My younger brother is a huge bethfag though, and he shared his steam library with me, which has oblivion and skyrim. Should I bother with either?
hope that they manage to get back on track and deliver a g2 tier game again with Elex I kind doubt it though
g3 had a great soundtack though best of kais work.
you'll really like both if you like RPGs
you can play either first, but oblivion has more soul
No, you'd get killed by some random nigger argonian so they can get their skooma fix.
having any valuable property in elder scrolls game is paramount to having a "please rob and kill me and raid my homestead"
But Oblivion is nice too
when I add any mod to oblivion that makes the LOD of distant objects (buildings etc.) visible no matter how far they are, they are always only black siluetes !!!
anyone knows what shit causes this ?
your brother has shit taste
>Should I bother with either?
Only if you have a lot of free time. These games are only fun if you can spend a huge amount of hours on them.
From the tow games i'd say you should start with Oblivion and them move to skyrim if you want more. Remember to mod them, case you can improve so much.
They're missing the textures. It might be that you got qarls texture mod and use RAEVWD without the compatibility pack. And that you use Oblivion Reloaded with the RAMdisk feature without actually setting up a ramdisk (just disable it)
Yes the game was bad on most part but god damn the environments team did a great job
Skyrim is nice. I just wish I could give a shit about the storyline or any of the characters.
I'm probably alone in this, but I always found some of the missions in Dishonored to be pretty comfy. Sneaking around lavish mansions, brothels, and government buildings in the cover of night listening to guards and maids mumbling to themselves is kinda relaxing in a weird way.
Post games with beautiful rain at night with a blue hue
This game was hilarious. There was a potion you could make that gave your character PERMANENT stat increases. And the item crafting just consisted of combining the same weapon with itself as many times as you wanted.
So you'd just collect 20 Shitty Swords and combine them into one Shitty Sword with the stats of all 20 added together. There was also elemental damage modifiers you could put on your weapons that could works the same way. It didn't take very long to make a weapon that could one-shot anything in the game.
Plus it crashed all the time. That said, I loved it.
I have about 20 hours into Two Worlds 2 and I liked it for the most part. Absolutely horrendous AI on some of the enemies, though. You could easily kite some things with just a tiny backpedal between shooting arrows because they would completely stop moving while doing their attack animation.
>Skyrim is nice. I just wish I could give a shit about the storyline or any of the characters.
The Dark Brotherhood is by far the most compelling. There are actual interesting character arcs and it presents a meaningful choice.
>not caring about your waifu
What's wrong with you
The whole Winterhold College questline was awful.
Guess I'll try them on my next character then.
>You will never explore Jarkendar for the first time
How did they manage to make it feel so big? It's literally two straight roads, three small zones and a beach
>The whole Winterhold College questline was awful.
I'd say it was just mediocre. Plain. Not too creative, somewhat unoriginal.
"There is a powerful mcguffin and someone wants to steal it."
Going into it it's exciting. It's kind of cool in the first play through to be inducted and see inside, especially if you are still learning to play mage. But the middle is bland and there is no reason to care about who dies.
The Arniel Gane side quest is a bit more interesting and has a cool, but useless, prize. I do like making use of the College and its characters but the main story isn't compelling.
>What's wrong with you
I had it down between her and J'Zargo for which one I'd sacrifice to Boethiah. I only spared her because she apologized for her shitty spells, and J'Zargo is a dirty catman.
I might be more alright with it if they didn't randomly decide to make you Archmage at the end. Makes it feel artificial, like they decided you're the archmage because every other game makes you the archmage, rather than your character being suited for the title.
gothic 1 i can legit see nostalgia goggles as an argument, the game's a fucking clunkest
gothic 2 is goty tho provided you increase camera rotation speed in settings, that shit too slow
>I might be more alright with it if they didn't randomly decide to make you Archmage at the end. Makes it feel artificial, like they decided you're the archmage because every other game makes you the archmage, rather than your character being suited for the title.
That's totally correct.
I remember popping this into my
360and fighting the first few groms in that temple and immediately turning it off. Then I felt an inexplicable urge to boot it up again. Next day, I got past the intro and somehow lost myself in that world. Comfy really is the best way to put it.
That dialogue, though.
How do you fuck up an Oblivion character
Are you retarded on purpose? Anything can work, and if you're too stupid to make it work then raising literally any other skill is the easiest shit
>Is there a comfier game?
Yes. Hundreds of them, actually.
Everything in this game feels and looks like it's made from polyurethane. It's so incredibly plastic, and artificial, and lacks any attention to detail to make it believable that it ends up utterly and perfectly unimmersive. It's in fact one of the most uncanny, artificial-looking and immersion-breaking RPG's I've ever played.
The music is good, but it sounds better actually detached from the game, and frankly lacks more low-key and less "look at this epic LOTR-Rippoff we made for you" melodies.
The last immersive RPG Bethesda has done was Morrowind.
Gothic games were clunky as fuck, had worse art assets, worse music, and yet somehow managed to be more immersive than this. Witcher offered stuff like the fourth Chapter. Hell, Two Fucking Worlds was more immersive than this.
Oblivion is really an american idea of a holiday: A fucking Disneyland - so fucking sterilized, derivative, artificial, poorly trying to mimic european medieval romatism, and devoid of anything actually endearing it's not even funny. Fuck that game.
I don't know why but genuinely like G3, even more than the the 1st and 2nd.
Hardwar, it's one of my favourite games ever because I find it incredibly comfy.
No, it's Les Kassos. Les Lascars was made by the same guys, but it's not the same characters nor the same format. Les Kassos is a webseries, Les Lascars aired on TV for a while.
>Main complaint is that the game looks bad
And what the fuck are you even trying to say here?
>and frankly lacks more low-key and less "look at this epic LOTR-Rippoff we made for you" melodies.
This statement makes no god damn sense
Go propagate your memes about games you never played elsewhere
>/v/ hated Oblivion but now it's good by relativity
>always enjoyed it
Oblivion is great for comfy. Same with Morrowind. Morrowind has excellent music, as well.
Skyrim can be comfy too, but it takes the right combination of mods for me to enjoy playing it.
And Gothic, of course.
>And what the fuck are you even trying to say here?
That Morrowind had good art direction and design. Terrible glowing film on enchanted items not withstanding.
>This statement makes no god damn sense
Can you not read? What I mean is that it needed more music that deviates from the same generic fantasy formula introduced by the soundtrack to LOTR.
What it lacked were some more ambient melodies that have a different pace and tone.
No, what you said is it lacks both ambient tracks and the LotR style tracks, which the game has about the same about of each.
and no both games look like shit, your just butthurt that there when't any giant glowing mushrooms because that is what you like more, and not for any kind of objective reason to hate the art direction
>your just butthurt that there when't any giant glowing mushrooms because that is what you like more
Actually, I don't. I prefer more historical and realistic fantasy, such as The Witcher 1 and 3 offered to the strangness of Nausicaa inspired Morrowind. But I still prefer well realized setting of any kind to poorly realized setting of any kind, and Oblivion is poorly realized. And no, there are no objective reasons here, because we talk evaluation and comparison, and those are rooted in normative, not objective standards.
That said, there are very concrete things wrong with Oblivion's settings, and they are worse than Morrowind in very concrete ways. Let's take two examples: First, it's utter misunderstanding of medieval architecture and urbanism - which is a problem since the game opts to go for faux-historical European style. Morrowind dodged this problem by creating it's own unique style.
Second, it lacks consistency or coherency. In Morrowind, different architecture styles actually reflect the historical and political context of the island - architecture is shared among fractions or social groups, or through tangible historical links. Oblivion has none of that - each city has it's own architecture which actually tells nothing about the overworld, and ultimately feel all the same despite having no consistency between each other.
In general, Morrowind simply tells it's story through the environment better. It has more layers, and actually fresh ideas.
you people have by far the shittiest taste in games. Also cozy is a lazy term used by faggots who can't justify a game being good, so they just say " But it's so cozy!"
Do you enjoy living in your mothers basements you failed attempts at human life?
Why the hell would it be too late to play any single player game? I don't get questions like this.
Oblivion is generally a lot better than Skyrim but needs a few mods to make it cross the barrier from "boring game with some highlights" to "mostly decent"
Poor baby. Why don't you go waste some more of your mommies money on mountain dew and video games?
The music, quests and environment is why Oblivion is my favorite TES. Morrowind and Skyrim weren't as comfy or engaging, even if the lore or combat was better.
I don't think Jeremy Soule can do better than that OST. Some Skyrim tracks kind of come close.
It's definitely not a very good game, graphics aged like ass (hence mods are "needed") and it runs like shit on modern computers, and the levelling system is really terrible and will probably screw you over unless you minmax (again MODS ARE NEEDED TO FIX THIS)
But there is really nice music, tons of retarded funny characters and a bunch of decent sidequests. With a few mods to rectify the worst issues with the game and some coffee you can have a really nice time with the game
Oblivions pretty comfy allright but my personal favourite is this bad boy
Looks like Natural Lighting and Atmospherics
Reminder that you'll get old enough to see DA:I be praised, and Skyrim be considered a legitimately good game.
People will decry nostalgia and shit, but the fact that this shite now sees praise is nothing if not proof that our standards are in the fucking gutter.
Yea it's definitely an improvement from the first one, worth a play honestly, especially if you pick it up on sale for like 5 bucks
>comfy games thread
I bet you've never driven a KrAZ-255 though forests and muddy riverbeds onto a hillside clearing and watched the sunset while the crickets chirp and the engine pops and clicks as it cools down
I dunno, I have a gtx 780 factory overclock and 3.5ghz i7 and run at 50-60fps most of the time with ENB, a million 2K/4K textures and dyndolod
this, although it's a different kind of comfy
for real the only mod you need for morrowind is MGE with vanilla textures, and distant land. Everything else is so unnecessary
This is my comfy game
>that great music everywhere
>everything is pure atmosphere
>those comfy towns
It really was jarring when you got to the last dungeon as it really felt like the only one not so comfy anymore, even Rebena Te Ra was comfy in it's own way but not the last one, it's just plain despair
True that you don't need anything more than that but I like the grass, and higher definition textures and slightly better animations do not ruin anything like purists like to believe
>watch friend play Morrowind
>first thing he does is find a pond to autoswim towards a wall to train athletics
>he starts over at least 5 times with a new character because he never gets pleased with the stats even after studying them carefully on uesp
Meanwhile I just pick whatever skills I feel fits my character and never have any problems during the 100 hours I usually put into my chars
>Build whatever you want because you are just going to end up abusing alchemy and enchanting anyways
it feels incredibly fun to be a gamebreaking piece of shit though
Honestly I wonder if it's even possible to make a good space game, you'd need to properly divide attention between ship nonsense, space and planetary exploration, seems like it'd inevitably be inferior to specialized alternatives.
Same with boat games.
There's an old game called Battlecruiser 3000AD that tried to do this. You could command the ship from the bridge, launch fighters and fly in one of them, and send marines to a planet in a dropship and play as one of them in FPS mode.
It didn't work out very well.
Don't even think that this kind of logic is acceptable.
You know what looks promising? Marketing of a game, the actual game can only ever be good, promising is a fucking delusion you let yourself accept out of desparation, wait for the fucking game before deciding any of that.
And even if this kind of thinking was acceptable, Star citizen looks conceptually impossible. Comparing it to it's most comparable title Eve Online it just promises things it could never conceivably deliver.
I love Persona games, but why are they considered comfy? If anything it was a rather tense, eerie feeling with the murder cases and shit, and the other games had a similar vibe.
For me it's Cities Skyline and Fallout games.
But i respect Oblivion comfiness, it's just that i tried to replay it like 2 years ago and was impressed for how shitty it looked outdoors. I remember being amazed by the graphics when it released. Indoors i think it still looks fine though. The music is a big plus as well.
Nigga you're playing it wrong
Start with Adam & Eve scenario, just two people
By having just two people, getting food is a breeze and you'll have more time to do shit in general. Highly recommended you try playing through the game that way.
>play for a little bit
>notice a marker on the other side of the world for the final boss
>start running across the world at like level 8
>takes about an hour or so
>eventually make it to the last boss and kill him
was pretty fun
kind of funny how everything on my way there would 1 shot me, but the boss was pretty easy
doesn't having more useless primary skills make you stronger? you level slower and accumulate more wealth/items.
i thought all that primary skills did was change the XP you get from that skill
Alright /v/ what was the comfiest area of any game? Also most comfy soundtrack?
100 Rads Bar (STALKER : SoC) - An escape from the harsh zone, a place of rest and merry drinking.
Hand of fate is comfy as shit to play in the dark, havin a drink of choice.
I'm fully convinced at this point that there is a single fag who is on /v/ 24/7 waiting for someone to post a thread about literally any open world RPG so they can reply to it that Gothic is somehow better
WAH WAH MORROWIND BETTER!!!
WAH WAH BETHESDA TODD LIES!!!
WAH WAH MORROWIND IS TOTALLY NOT SHIT COMPARED TO DAGGERFALL!!!
Not that guy but I'd say Gothic 1 did open world perfectly
>total of 4 loading screens, 3 for entering huge dungeons
>seamless world with tons of interesting stuff
>old camp at the center
It's just so well done in my opinion, I'm not sure why other developers haven't tried a similar approach
xtrl+f "seiken densetsu 3"
Comfiest SNES game I've ever played.
I can't explain why. This game is comfy as fuck.
How many mods and fan patches do I need to install for Gothic 3 to not be a hot mess of shit?
I remember finishing and loving Gothic 2, going straight to 3, and finding it to be just that a long time ago.
There's your problem. The raider invasion events need to preemptively evaluate different origins of attack and your base probably only provides one (because AI can't into water). So it simply never triggers.
Risen 1 is better in terms of graphics (obviously) and a more coherent open world. But it's a generally smaller game in comparison to Gothic 2, of which it's modeled after in terms of mechanics and tone.
But still goddamn outstanding as a game. No RPG I know promotes and rewards exploration, and punishes retards like Gothic 1/2, and Risen. Too bad Risen 2 and 3 were absolute fucking garbage.
Risen 3 was pretty great though in my opinion
>combat was pretty good again
>those beautiful landscapes
>factions that change your dodge roll depending on what you become
I enjoyed it a lot, needless to say the "titan" are the lowpoint but hey
I didn't play enough of Risen 3 to appreciate more mid-late game stuff. But I think it's the shitty console UI and inventory system that they kept from Risen 2 that rubbed me the wrong way.
God I hate that inventory system.
I just got done replaying this game last month
You're making me want to do it again already aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
I don't really remember the backstory but it's set on a few craters in Titan linked with tubes and shit. It's sort of like a space sim, so you control these moths (tiny flying vehicles) and you have to make money by scavenging, bounty hunting, buying and selling stuff, attacking ships to steal their cargo, the usual stuff. I heard that with the new patches you can send other people to do stuff for you, but I never tried it.
That's kind of all there is to the game, but that's what makes it so comfy for me. If you play it enough at a certain point you can forget about making money and just cruise around listening to the techno soundtrack, killing pirate ships and enjoying the scenery.
It doesn't look like much from the screenshots but I really enjoy it, the palette is very comfy and each crater has its own distinct look.
It's kind of a pain to install correctly, so here's a guide. http://steinuil.github.io/hardwar/
Also make sure to visit Captain Zedo's website, the game is pretty hard to pick up at first, it explains nothing.
this game was comfy from start to finish
also GOAT soundtrack
>still no Skywind, or morroblivion
The only thing that bothers me about this screenshot is how unrealistic the clouds are. In real life, mountains become shrouded in clouds because they literally soar above them. Here, they just put clouds around the mountain to make it look nice, but the clouds are strangely close to the ground. Does anyone know what I mean?
That... doesn't even make sense. If people liked it back then, why can't you like it now? This may be one of the most stupid posts I've ever seen.
Games don't change and they don't age. There are people who liked it then and people who hated it then; likewise, there are people who played it recently and liked it and people who played it recently and hated it. A good game is a good game forever.
I honestly have to mod the leveling system. It ruins immersion for me to spam jumping or standing there letting things beat on me to level up skills a precise number of times, but it ruins playing the game for me to permanently gimp my charadcter by not getting full level up rewards.
That was one thing I liked about skyrim, it was near impossible to permanently gimp your character by just playing.
>No big developer will be willing to do another Morrowind-ish alien fantasy world because it's too big of a risk
>people on /v/ link songs from a soundtrack that I like
>post the most boring shit on the entire soundtrack.
At least post a livelier song.
Source? I couldn't find the results through google image search.
Leyawiin was my favourite town. Really comfy, even if the count was a fucking lunatic.
>NPCs talk like ye olde English folks
>Two Worlds 2 NPCs talk normal
>there's an NPC in a tavern that talks like a Two Worlds NPC on steroids
I love that they completely acknowledged how retarded but fun it was.
Psshh, nothin personal, kid.
Skyrim is a barren harsh wasteland in the middle of civil war where giant dragon attacks happen regularly and the biggest city has like 5 houses
there is nothing comfy about it please stop this meme
Because some people can't appreciate the desire to build.
>been wanting to play RoR for the past couple days
>won't start, just flashes a black screen, says it's running on Steam for 2 seconds and then doesn't do anything
I've uninstalled and reinstalled and same shit. All my other games work
Wow, is all of that legit? Impressive.
Me and a friend wanted to do something like that during our Expert mode playthrough but then got burnt out after the 2nd Moon Lord fight, so I whipped this the night after and we ended the playthrough there. It's missing a trophy and a couple armor sets, but I was pretty much done after 400 hours and getting all of the achievements.
Hope Otherworld isn't shit.
