Atelier games are pretty good if you can get past all the moeshit. Totori is particularly good and I've heard good things about Escha and Logy

The witcher games aren't "comfy" for the most part, but the taverns in those games have some great atmosphere. Also there are some real chill parts to both games that juxtapose all the shitty areas, like if you pick Ioverth's path in 2 you get to chill in this awesome dorf town that is really comfy.

My vote is for Witcher 1, walking through Vizima as the rain stats to pour down as all the villagers run to cover or that nice slavic feel that was lacking in 2.

medium fantasy means tolkien-esque where its more subtle right?

I found the flash game frontier to be relaxing since its just life as a fantasy trader in a fantasy realm.

Oblivion, especially with Better Cities, the mod that has chimnies turn on at night/during winter and windows light up added so much comfort. Seeing the lights of a city in the distance and working towards it during a storm was an amazing feeling and added more depth than all the combat mods in the world.

The game Reignmaker, a bejeweled clone with some sim-lite elements, did a good job of making it feel like between battles you were helping a village grow.

Minecraft, way back when and I guess now with the right modpacks and terraria both did a good job of giving you a nice home to go back to, build up, and decide what to do. That both games easily allowed for unstoppable fortresses helped, but I still remember building a small shack under a cliff and slowly expanding it over time until it was this nice tower built into it.

Also honestly Skyrim can be modded to be comfortable. The combat will always be shit, but there are mods that add a lot of depth to the weather, survival, and woodsman elements of the game making treks feel more enjoyable and civilization more inviting. Hearthfire was great since I have a boner for building my own homes and it scratched that itch well.

Black and White was also comfortable in between being esoteric or bullshit.

>medium fantasy means tolkien-esque where its more subtle right?

Technically it's high-fantasy. As in, it's set in a foreign fantasy world. Low fantasy is when it's fantasy set in the real world.

It can also mean, low fantasy="high fantasy" without the magic. Though that's kinda wrong.

Don't think there is a word for Tolkienesque fantasy. Though it's not really subtle there either. There's plenty of weird shit in there. Think he just meant "medieval fantasy".
>>
>>275606669
If you need to put this much work into fixing the game into being fun then it hardly seems worth it. I'd have more fun quicker just going out into the woods and playing pretend with my friends.
>>
>>275606726

I mean subtle in that its not dungeons and dragons where it feels like its hitting every archetype.

Tolkein had an organic feel to it where shit was just sorta there and like myth. Wizards didn't cast +3 fireballs.
>>
>>275606805
>Wizards didn't cast +3 fireballs.
Gandalf did.

But I get you. I think it's mostly because Tolkien knew his shit about mythology, history and language, and through his well constructed world he made each fantasy element feel like it really belongs there. Like it's a real piece of history. They are not there to just further the story, but there because they happen to be there.
>>
>>275606793
It's not *that* much work. I just recognized how casual the game was and spent like 10 minutes after Unbound thinking about the direction I wanted to go this playthrough.

I am hoping Kingdom Come is going to grab that title, but right now... not that many good ones. And that even an easy mode anyway, as Id like a pretty good medieval fantasy game where you are a nobleman, having your own lands, dynasty and basically being a ruler.
Imagine CK 2 with less strategy and staring at the map, and more GoT-like RPG gameplay.

People like to hate on Skyrim, but with mods it becomes at least 50% as good as fanboys like to say it is ... and ultimately pretty comf.y

You can always disable fast travel.

I feel like a lot of adventure games don't get that the travel IS the adventure. Getting there is the fun part, not actually being there and fighting the final boss. It's the people you meet on the road, the enemies you encounter and fight through, the gear you loot or buy and the skills you learn along the way. You grow up during the voyage.

I always imagine a game that is a cross between Skyrim, Dragon's Dogma, Dark Souls and Monster Hunter. Put all those games into one.

I want town hubs where people can meet and go on adventures (the game would be 5 max online coop), taverns with food and drink and things to do, guilds with quests. I'm not sure how it would work exactly but the game would basically be single-player with towns being the only thing online and in there you can find hundreds of other players to go on an adventure. Once you form a party of up to five, you can go together and coop the game if you so wish.

I also want the game to not have any sense of urgency, there is no impending doom. You can spend your days fishing, eating or chopping wood for your house. Also house customization, very important.

TES games suffer from a distinct lack of random events. If you have gone through a road twice nothing else will happen on it, ever.
From that point you'll just be walking through an empty wasteland.
Even if you go out of your way to enter some random cave, chances are it will be just like those twelve others you have entered before, and at the end you will get a shitty magicka ring (of which you already have three better ones).
>>

>TES games suffer from a distinct lack of random events. If you have gone through a road twice nothing else will happen on it, ever.

>>275611914
You can install certain mods that add new and more random events to Skyrim.

I can't really think of a game that has so much random events in Vanilla though.
>>
>>275611363
I'm with you for the most part, except I don't think we're going to get anything like that until our control schemes are better. To me, the main problem is that we'll always just press M1 to attack, which is not immersive at all. We have no real say in how our character moves.

Fuck man, I want full-dive technology now.

Of course, you can build your house anywhere you want outside of towns and players can choose to allow other players' content and decisions to affect their own game world.

Just imagine you and your virtual gf living in a (virtual) house of your own, a bit like Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon. You could also form guilds in the same vein.

Also the game needs things like marriage and events tied to the real world calendar that only happen on that particular day. Say for instance Halloween happens IRL but in the game it's actually some spooky festival or tradition in that particular town that only happens that day.

Also fucking kids. No game ever does kids right.

>>275611767
What about that mod that scatters interesting, fully-voiced NPCs thoughout the world? I agree though, the game becomes very predictable once you've traveled a bit. Oh look, another dragon event. Oh look, another bandit.

I want to encounter some Khajit on the road and have him join me on my adventures out of the blue, or him stalking me. Something a bit more interesting. Or a gang of bandits capturing me and taking me to their cave from whence I have to escape.

Imagine a game where you can become a specialized blacksmith and then sell your wares to other players at the market. Other players didn't specialize in blacksmithing, so the only way the can get weapons or armor is by buying from you or stealing it from some other player.

You get to chop wood, tend the fires, come up with designs etc. You live in your own little cozy house, then you have to wake up early in the morning to travel to the nearest town and be there when the market actually opens. If you get too late, you'll miss out on selling your wares.

In the same vein, imagine being a witch or a chemist selling wares in town (from leaves and shrooms you actually gathered in the woods). Or some farmer producing and selling food.

See it's a nice idea but it's too simplistic and repetitive.

It needs to be like Skyrim blacksmithing. In 3D, with you seeing your whole character actually working. Interacting with voiced NPCs I find is better than having to read what some animu loli is telling me about prices.

It's a DS game. The core contribution of this game to the concept is to split the craft into many actual working steps. Most RPGs fail crafting by simply providing a mechanism to select a "recipe" and watch a status bar. If we want to see crafting in RPGs to be meaningful, it needs to be on par in complexity with fighting. In fact, it would be perfect if the player needs equal amounts of strategy to skill the various crafting aspects, and if a player can actually "fail" the crafting process like that, producing imperfect items. It means the crafter can actually improve, produce items of higher complexity and quality, maybe at some point become a "legendary" crafter, producing such high quality items that adventurers from all over the country come to them. These items of course are as difficult to make, as in existing games a boss fight would be, with many ways to screw up fantastically.

The problem with crafting things is that, realistically, it would take too much time to be fun.

People play individual dungeons for half an hour or full hour, raids take multiple hours. So why can't a complex craft take as long? All you need to do is make the tension as high as in a dungeon or a raid. Give the player mechanisms to fail crafting. Don't keep the fire hot enough? You're fucked. Keep it too hot? You're fucked. Add the wrong amount of other stuff for alloys? You're fucked. Don't cool down an item fast enough? You're fucked...

Got to loosen it up a little. Their games just make no attempt to be realistic, which is a good approach when dealing with such a vast subject. Drawing, or a drawn style, is a good mechanism to distance oneself from realism. Drawings are definitely not real. With something like, say, the Witcher, it is fictional, but clearly "realistic" fiction.

Final Fantasy IX, last good game of the franchise, and Japans last bet on making good games that wasn't filled with moeshit.

RIP Squaresoft, RIP Japanese vidya industry.
You will be missed.

That looks so sad though. The Shire/Hobitton are full of tall grass.

It's a game from like 2007, it still looks comfy mostly in dwarf areas though

Well last gen we were held back by the console limitations, but they aren't too bad now so hopefully we'll see some interesting stuff come out this gen.

I doubt it though. Why is creativity and fun dead?

What?
It's hailed as one of the best japanese games ever made.

That's at least a major reason. Technology focused thinking over actual interest in the game. You will find a lot of very elaborate and whimsical fantasy worlds in 1980s or early 90s RPGs. They had far less technology, and understood that technology is not carrying the game.

Speaking of LOTR, I'm surprised of how good this game is. It's not out there in terms of quality but it's a decent hack and slash with high difficulty, not to mention it actually has working coop.

The hubs like Rivendell and the Prancing Pony are pretty comfy.

Because no one wants to make an effort with their games.

That's why all western games are all hype and broken promises and all eastern games are shitty moeblob crap that sells to the lowest jackasses with no standards.

Why do you think people are saying the industry as a whole is dead?
>>
>>275618675
interior and "artificial" structures are always easier to model than nature, because you can trick a lot with planar surfaces and good textures
>>
>>275618530
Cryisis is also from like 2007

>the industry as a whole is dead
I'd like to say the industry has split. There are the businesses, that produce "games" to appeal to the masses and to move volume. They fit your description exactly. But then there are also the enthusiasts. Smaller companies that do games because they love gaming. They did the shareware craze back in the early 90s. They're the indie stuff now. While there's a lot of trash in there, there are also gems. Especially because these people have access to better tools than ever before in the history of gaming.
What I'm saying is, just don't treat the majors as part of the gaming market, because they aren't, and you'll see what's left is pretty fine
>>
>>275618845
Crysis also required hefty hardware. MMOs tend to target mid to low end hardware, because they think they need masses of players
>>
Sci-Fi Fantasy > High Fantasy > Modern Fantasy > Mid Fantasy > Low Fantasy

Just a reminder that Spice and Wolf was shit, and that Lawrence gets NTR'd by a little shota faggot since Whoro is a massive slut and also used goods.

>start in a dark souls 1 esque land
>fight shitty mobs to gather items
>shitty items are your staple, for now
>adventurers are coming through your shop from time to time, just a rickety shack without a roof for now at the start of the first level
>as the adventurers buy more of your stuff, they progress further into the level, eventually beating the boss
>with the boss beaten, you can travel to the next level
>to set up a new, more prestigious shop with better items from the stronger enemies
>eventually hire a new merchant to set up shop in a lower level area for new low level heroes to use, getting you even more shekels
>buy out new rivaling merchants or just kill them in battle
>hire protection from enemy monsters

now, the great thing about this game would be that you could fight like a hero yourself.

it's nice to be able to dream
