Comfy Game Thread 2.
What makes a game comfy?
Also, am I the only one who is redownloading Banished in light of the last thread?
Bully is probably the most comfy game I've ever played and its because of the music.
Either tropical or soft colors
Big, open world
Relaxed, no time limit
Plot isn't needlessly complex/doesn't have too many characters
Pic related, my ideal comfy game. Big, tropical and so much to explore. A vast wonderland of interesting things to do and abandoned islands to explore, that you can do at your own pace or not at all. Only thing that'd make it better is if were portable.
I've never played Morrowind, but it will always be one of the comfiest games in the world for me.
When I was a kid, I would sit next to my big brother as he played computer. He was 7 years older than me, so this was some of the only time together we had during his teenage years. Whenever I hear the Morrowind soundtrack, I'm back at the chair next to him, just sitting and watching and being comfy with my brother.
He's too busy with his career now to care about his loser little brother.
The thing that bothers me with most building games is the fact that a lot of them are on flat featureless ground.
I'd love a game of nothing but hills and valleys having to build around natural features.
Also a Cyberpunk City Sim is my dream game. Fuck building on the horizontal plane, I want to go vertical.
Sailing or airship travel is an instacomfy for me. I loved Wind Waker and Black Flag, but I'm having trouble finding open world airship/flying games.
Maybe I should give Etrian Odyssey 4 another go
Pic related was comfy as hell. Was like a perfect little adventure/fairy tale, loved every second of it and even when the stakes were raised a bit by crumbling things or super-high climbing, it still felt like I was in the middle of a big beautiful storybook. Music was amazing too, and the nonsense language made it more comfy.
The atmosphere and sense of wonder
and emotional impact of the ending jesus christmade this one of my favorite games ever, despite flaws it had with graphics strength and a few little issues with clipping
Relaxing vidya without rush.
>tfw still no Scandinavia DLC release date for ETS 2
The peasants need cider to level up!
People were shittalking it? Really?
I honestly feel like it's a landmark game. It tells a story in a way that isn't just cutscene-gameplay-cutscene-gameplay. The gameplay is the story, and I don't wanna spoil anything, but at the end they did a clever thing that ended up making a button input feel like a real emotional moment. Like, not what happened after the button input, but the actual pressing of the button.
Maybe it resonated more with me than with other people, but you should check it out, anon. It's cheap and/or easily pirate-able.
I could play this shit for hours running around doing nothing but taking in the scenery and listening to the great soundtrack
Especially nice to listen to now when it's all cold and rainy outside, I can't wait for Summer to come back.
I'm talking mondo cities. Buildings that criss cross, that can go up, down, left, sideways, and slantways, longways and backways.
I want slums and drones. I want organized cyber crime and weekly zombie outbreaks.
I was even warned that the ending was rough, but the part where they force you to CONTROL THE BURIAL OF THE BROTHERwas too goddamn much. Using the older brother's input at the end was fucking genius though. That alone made the game classic for me.
Pretty sure it's a fact that New Hampshire is the comfiest of states
Banished is pretty much Waiting: The Game
It looks neat and if it were expanded upon it would be cool but there are so few buildings and things to do that after awhile it just gets boring
I fucking love this game, didn't like when it kind of forsced the desert stuff on me just to continue advancing though. But fuck is it comfy.
I can't help but wonder if they just placed extra orchards or that was just pieced together perfectly.
Some of the desert based stuff are the most beautiful.
Most of the locations in Breath of Fire 3, also whenever food was served in that game...
this game gets boring fast
Hunting Guild/improved hunting
Vurt Flora overhaul
wet and cold
become a bard
towns and villages enhanced
Comfy as fuck.
No idea, I just collect cyberpunk images.
Can anything compare to the comfiness of Chao Garden?
Also, Pumpkin Hill? Seriously, that sky made me feel so creepily comfy. Like Majora's Mask. Know of any other games with that creepy comfy feel?
- Morrowind, specifically when you disembark at Seyda Neen. Also, Balmora.
- FF7, when you leave Midgar for the first time, and Midgar in general. Also Kalm.
- Myst and Riven.
- Deus Ex, Hong Kong most notably.
- Arcadia and various other areas in Dreamfall and The Longest Journey.
- Halo: ODST, the noir feel of the city and the music.
- Grim Fandango at various points, mostly the year skips. Esp Rubacava.
- Baldur's Gate 2, when you get out of Irenicus' dungeon at the start and find yourself in Waukeen's Promenade in busy Athkatla.
- Thief II, in the 'life of the party' level. Skipping across the rooftops of a medieval steampunk city.
- Deux Ex: Human Revolution - Entering Adam Jensen's apartment for the first time.
>Driving around late at night, 1am
>Moderate rain, in the midst of spring
>The world is slowly coming alive again
>Radio plays the mellow mix of jazz and hiphop instrumentals, or a lecture about space and our place in it.
>Windows down a crack so I can smell the earth's ichor leaking out from the cracks in the ground that the rain has filled
>Not another soul on the road as I drive down miles upon miles of wooded backroad, with the occasional break in the forest yielding to a small home, swamp or pond.
Driving around on rainy nights is soul cleansing anon.
>Can anyone recommend any comfy Skyrim mods?
I found the enhanced grass/trees mod to be really comfy looking.
If I ever pirate Skyrim that's first on my list.
I always liked this level for some reason.
