User Games of the MomentEdit
If you're looking for some quick gaming suggestions, this page provides a place where this wiki's admins and editors list their 'game of the moment'. The game does not have a set date of time to stay on the list, nor does it adhere to any specifics. It's just the game that the user who put it up feels like promoting and sharing for the time being. Maybe it's what they're currently playing, or have just beaten, or just discovered, or are remembering fondly. Doesn't matter. It's simply a collection of personally recommended games by your bros.

|Kotep||The Elder Scrolls V: Creation Kit||Vivec||The real game is modding the game.||PC|
|MFGreth||Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen||Action RPG||GOBLINS ILL LIKE FIRE!||PS3|
|Mozai||Creeper World 3||RTS||Kind of like tower defence, but uses liquid physics instead of marching along a path. Written in .NET, still works under Linux.||Linux|

|Aco88||Far Cry 2||FPS||A real man's FPS, without all the babby hand-holding of modern games. Very similar to S.T.A.L.K.E.R. in that you're in an open world and can literally go anywhere at any time. Your weapon can jam and break, and you need to always take pills to avoid dying of malaria.||PC (Also on PS3, 360)|
|Anton Imaus||Hearts of Iron II: Armageddon||Strategy||Playing this on and off until I get bored. Recently played a campaign as the United States of North America in a fictional alternate history scenario and have taken over South America. Both the Fascists and Communists are no more and currently preparing to betray my former allies because that's how I roll. Now playing a scenario as Madagascar so I may take over the world and then shut it down. Progress is going slowly.||PC|
|Bideogemusu||Divine Divinity||RPG||The game is just as charming as its title. Isometric Morrowind with Diablo/Ultima combat that doesn't take itself seriously.||PC|
|Billhelm_II||Hellgate: London (2007)||RPG/Diablo clone||Like Diablo? Like post-apocalyptic themes? Like modern graphics? Then this is the game for you. It's a Diablo clone (complete with Tetris-based inventory) set in post-apocalyptic London rendered on a (mostly) modern graphics engine. The enemy design is good, the combat is very satisfying, and the classes are somewhat unique for a Diablo clone (FPSing? In my Diablo?). It's 100% worth playing for any fan of action-RPGs.||PC|
|Cloudman 15||Tekken 5/Pokemon X||Fighting/JRPG||Great fighting game/Great JRPG, what else is there to say?||PS2/3DS|
|Forte||Etrian Odyssey III: The Drowned City||RPG / F.O.E. Death Simulator||Finishing out this series (going backwards from III to I) before IV is released in the US.||NDS|
|GW||Deadstorm Pirates||Rail-Shooter||This is fucking god-tier rail shooting right here. Play as a campy pirate crew shooting golden guns with infinite ammo, manning cannons, killing skeletons, snakes, fish, and krakens, driving pirate ships and small boats, and all while finding some treasure to plunder. Play with a friend and SHOT COMBINE, and if youre lucky enough to find a cabinet (The arcade I go to only had it for a couple months so I only played it twice. Goddammit.) get a third guy to steer the ships. You can get a console port of this on PS3 with the Time Crisis: Razing Storm bundle (its the best of hte 3 gamesin it). I've also heard its on European PSN as a standalone title.||Arcade/PS3|
|Haipayazoo||Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers||Point and Click Adventure||My interests right now are on the Adventure genre, focusing mostly on point and clicks. An amazing adventure game, and a must play for any P&C Adventure enthusiast.||PC|
|Jukse||XCOM: Enemy Unknown||Turn-Based Strategy\Emotionally Bounding to Expendable Digital Soldiers||It's XCOM. You know how it goes: Plan your shit, shoot aliens and cry over your lack of tactical insight as your tiny pals are brutally slaughtered by plasma blasts bigger than their heads. Somewhat flawed in terms of plot progression and enemy A.I, but still a pretty enjoyable ride.
P.S: Ironman Mode + Classic difficulty recommended for maximum enjoyment. Feel free to try Impossible as well but, personally, I don't think it's worth all the bullshit you'll have to deal with. You can totally mock me as a filthy casual if you beat that, though. P.S.S: DLC is cool for adding a lot of cosmetic changes (Helmets!) but Slingshot's mission aren't that much of an addition.
|Kadou||Steambot Chronicles||RPG/Sandbox (sort of)||It's a game about nothing... well, nothing most of the time anyway. Go around and do whatever you want, whether that's mech fighting, playing some music on the sidewalk for tips, or just general questing. The controls take some getting used to, though; it's Katamari-esque, but not so much that it's an instant adjustment. At the least, the music and graphics are fine, and I haven't seen much slowdown or loading yet.
Overall, it's one of those nice games to relax with and slowly work your way into. Given how much there is to do, it'll last you a good while.
|Kierke||Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath||FPS / Action-Adventure||Third-person action-adventure, first-person bounty hunting - all awesome. In this game you use a wide variety of critters as crossbow ammo. Each has their own utility which enables ambush/trap setting, crowd control and trigger-happy tactics. Bounties can be brought in dead or alive, though the latter pays better and is much more challenging. The Oddworld charm and humor is here but it's Western-flavored now. Very underrated as it came out at the end of the Xbox's life cycle.||Xbox|
|Kitsuneae||Pokemon Yellow||Cockfighting||When Red, Blue and Yellow re-released I was foolishly challenged by co-workers to old school poke battle. Simple rules: No Mewtwo, No Hyper Beam, all pokemon must be the same level. Beware of surfing pikachu: your sandslash is hosed... literally.||3DS/GB|
|LEGOslayer||Sleeping Dogs||Action/Sandbox||Sandbox game where you play as an undercover cop infiltrating the Triads of Hong Kong. Its like a martial arts action thriller in game form. Great combat system in the same vein as the Batman Arkham games.||PS3|
|LYRIC-Stormwatch||Thief||Stealth||This game is addictive, infuriating, and rewarding. Some brain-melting mazes, each level can easily take an hour or two of exploration plus a lot of trial and error of sneaking and wacking guards' heads from behind. It does feel a bit aged and rough, but it's a lovely relic of a good time when big devs still dared to try new formulas.||PC|
|Mama-Mia||Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 Professional||RPG||Ok get this. It's in full 3D like it's predecessor but with over 100 new monsters just in 2 and then another 100 in professional not to mention all the extra buttloads of content like more regions and abilities. They fixed up the battle system and expanded a whole lot on the online.
So yeah make sure you get professional or you'ew a chump!
|NESfag||Streets Of Rage Remake||Beat-em-up||8 years in the work for this fantastic fan-made remake of Streets Of Rage. You've got all the characters, stages and enemies from the 3 games, but also new stages, new moves, and mini-games. Several paths to choose from so you can play it again and again and it never feels the same. The only downsides I can think of is the lack of online-coop and the motorbkies and jetski stages kinda suck. Overall it's a real blast and I can't get bored of it!||PC|
|nmanma||Lady Killer/Party Time - Gonta the Diver II||Action||This is an adult game, but the gameplay is so fun it's hard to believe there isn't a boobs-free version somewhere.
The game itself is like this: You must uncover the photo of a lovely lady by diving and surfacing on the board, but once you dive/surface in a tile, you can't flip that tile again. Beat a level and the lovely lady will remove some of her clothes. If you want her to keep going (you do) you have to do the level again on a harder setting until she runs out of clothes. This game has everything: fun power-ups, interesting enemies, an even better sequel... If there is a family friendly version out there, please post it, this is an excellent game and it's a shame I can't promote it more just because it makes me look like a perv.
|PKFire||Solitaire 12x1||CARDS, BITCH||STEP THE FUCK BACK, IS THIS SOME MOTHERFUCKING SOLITAIRE? YOU BET YOUR GODDAMN ASS IT IS! THIS THING CONTAINS A SHITLOAD OF SOLITAIRE GAMES: KLONDIKE, PYRAMID, YUKON, GOLF, FREECELL, WASP, PEAKS, CANFIELD, SPIDERETTE, ELIMINATOR, EASTHAVEN AND FUCKING BAKER'S DOZEN! YOU LITTLE BITCH HAVE PROBABLY NEVER HEARD OF EVEN HALF OF THOSE BUT THEY ALL KICK ASS! YOUR ASS! AND THE BEST THING? IT'S FUCKING FREE, SO GET TO IT AND PLAY IT, MOTHERFUCKER! MAKE THOSE COFFEE BREAKS AND BUS STOPS YOUR BITCH!|
|R404||Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010)||Racing||Arcadey racer. Play as cops or speeders. Just about as good as the original. Fantastic sense of speed. Endless fun in the free drive mode. Great soundtrack, great graphics. Feels like Burnout because it was made my Criterion games. Really fun multiplayer with inpeccable netcode, so you won't be seeing a lot of lag. Pure and simple fun. Great way to unwind after work or school without the frustrations of FPSs and the like.||PS3|
|RubedoBDX||Jam With the Band||Rhythm||One of the best rhythm games on DS that often goes unnoticed due to never seeing a US release (though there's a European version), that lets you choose from (potentially) thousands of songs, and lets you play any instrument in the song. Song pack (for flash carts) can be found here, and an informative Wiki can be found here.||DS|
|Sakahagi||Shin Megami Tensei||RPG/Dungeon Crawlan||Waiting for SMT IV so I started to play core series from the first one. Encounter Rate is insane but it feels good man.||SNES emu on PSP|
|Sypha||Dark Souls, Divinity 2, Tomb Raider, etc||Various||I'm playing quite a few games at the moment. From Dark Souls, to Divinity 2, to Tomb Raider 2, to Tomb Raider Anniv., to the occational DOA4/VF5FS fightan. Also playing some Dead Island bro-op once in a while.
Waiting for DOA5 to arrive, and praying for the localization of Onechanbara Z Kagura.
|360 / PSX|
|Turbobutts||Hydro Thunder||Rocket Speedboat Racing||HHHYYYDDDROOO TTTHHHUUUNNNDDDEEERRR!!!||NullDC|
|Zachncheeze||Resistance: Fall of Man||FPS||It's a split-timeline space invasion. It's pretty generic, but I feel like it has really solid controls and a pretty interesting story. Gameplay is great and the overall experience is enjoyable. Has split screen co-op for your bros too, and online mode isn't bad. Overall a great game and heavily underrated. I picked it up again because the 3rd one is coming out in 2011 and it's gonna be really, really good. The second one is okay, but they messed it up a little bit (they're fixing those things in the 3rd), however it is still a pretty decent game too. Try it if you like this one.||PS3|
