Tell us about that game that you love but nobody plays. Bonus points if it's abandonware or free

I think i should start:

Red Eclipse

A FREE (not P2W) and open source fast paced arena FPS. Has a parkour system (i heard that it was similar to Titanfall, but i haven't played it). Every weapon has two different shot attacks (you can even use a sword).

The game is like 5 years old and it's currently in 1.5.6 version.

It has a small but nice community. But right now, almost a lot of people left and just play every now and then. So i think it's the best time to start playing for new people.

I pitched an idea to the creators about creating more gameplay videos to attract more people (because the ones on youtube barely showcased the gameplay capabilities of this game), and i made some simple videos with some gameplay i recorded in a couple of hours. So please don't judge them harshly (WATCH THEM AT LEAST AT 480P OR 720P 60 FPS, they look disgusting on lower res).

>Rifle + Shotgun showcase

>Another video with more weapon variety

>Sword showcase

>A playlist with more RE videos i made


Also on Desura and Itch

Fun fact. Microsoft used it to showcase a technology they were working on:

Renegade-X the Command & Conquer FPS remade.

Classes, tanks, building capture/destruction and both teams have completely different styles of play that are well balanced.

Not many FPS can compete with it, but it's always been an obscure hit and now there's only 1 or 2 servers full at any given time, granted that's 20 players per side but considering the original was released in 2002 it's nice to know it's still going.

As a bonus the mods are kinda like ours, strict enforcers of the rules and rather happy on the ban-cannon.

my adolescence, phantom dust 2/remake was suppose to come out this year, but the team they put in charge of it were a bunch of shitters and now it's in development purgatory, probably indefinitely...its a shame, there really isn't anything else like it out there. Well what do you expect when dealing with Microsoft studios I guess

One of the last best PC RPGs made before developers lost their minds in the transition to isometric perspectives and tossed gameplay in the gutter to focus on storytelling. It's freeware too now, check it out.

the first PC games I played on a pc that was my own was SSI's gold box series. Curse of the Azure Bonds, Secret of the silver blades, and Gateway to the savage frontier

16/11/16(Wed)08:04 No. 144755 ID: 37f6d1

Are you comparing this to later Spiderweb games or to later RPGs in general? I don't know that the Avernum games are so bad. More info please.

Also, start at the first game or jump into the third?

16/11/28(Mon)08:01 No. 144765 ID: b75f8b

Later PC RPGs in general. But yes, Jeff's isometric games have been comparatively disappointing too.

I'd say start with Exile: Escape from the Pit and see if you can tolerate the lack of spell menu shortcuts. If you can't, feel free to jump to Exile II, the world is mostly a remix of the first game anyway.

Imperialism. I remember getting the demo on a PC Gamer disc in 1997 and playing it to death. Eventually downloaded it from Home of the Underdogs because it was near impossible to find a copy. Still love the game to this day though I haven't played it lately.

Persona 2: Eternal Punishment

The random drops alone will take you a playthrough long enough to max out the clock. The Fool cards are awesome... The story is great. Perfect game.

This could had been a cool franchise but the devs went bankrupt right when the second game was about to be shipped

The original was the first pc game I ever played, at an average of like 10 fps and 5 indoors. It was the game that got me interested in upgrading PCs.

I know about red eclipse

Cool arena shooter, did only play for 30 minutes or so.

I have to go for CDDA.
It's an ASCII rogue like set in an post apocalyptic world with zombies. Sounds super generic but the depth of this game is amazing. Your character has health for head, torso and each limb, stamina and feels pain which debuffs heavily when in strong pain. He gets tired depending on what you're doing. There's a morale system that's influenced by listening to music, killing child zombies, good food, bad weather etc. Morale influences the exp system and very strong moods can even affect stats.
You need to keep him slaked and nourished but don't think about just eating junk food you find in the abandoned towns. There's now a vitamin system and shitty food makes you catch diseases faster.

There's an encumbrance system for clothing/armor that's affected by how you layer it.

There's shitloads of weapons both existing and fictional with many different ammo types (hot loads, fmj, hollow point, slugs/flechette for shotguns) and loads of gun mods like sights, grips, stocks etc.
You can even keep spent casings and reload them.

There's a mutation and bionic system. You can go full cybord mode and cut an arm off for a plasma gun powered by your internal generator that runs on alcohol. Targeting systems for your eyes, tool sets in your forearms, steel plating as skin, hydraulic muscles.

Mutations are divided into animal categories and plants. You can become a tree person that gets nourishment from sunlight with bark skin or a werewolf with talons and super strong muscles and night vision.

Then there's vehicles and their customisation. You can repaird broken cars and turn them into Mad Max mobiles with spiked plating, mounted flamethrowers and multiple engines. Or build your solar powered, mobile home with a bed, kitchen and water tank.

That's not even all there is to it but it's still in development and new stuff gets added as you read this.

Holy shit guys if you have a PS4 download QURARE MAGIC FUCKING LIBRARY it's a pay-to-win game but hear me out, it's Temple Run with tits and a card game at the end. The story actually has some decent jokes and the collecting cards is addictive as fuck. I'm actually debating spending five bucks on fucking gems. The running part is actually pretty fun too but the card game is the payoff for sure. Also you can upgrade your cards (but being p2w it takes like fifty fucking cards and you get one a match) and it takes some of their clothes off. If you're a pervert and like animue at all you should fucking love this at least until you start falling behind and have to grind a big. I keep telling myself to play something better but still log in for the free bonus and shit and end up playing for three hours.

I have this on the 3DO... The system is buried in a box somewhere though. That Road Rash and Putt Putt (the entire fucking series) were reason to own the system alone

17/02/15(Wed)22:54 No. 144870 ID: 5a53ee

3DO Road Rash was really the only system to play Road Rash on. The one at my workplace never had any other game in it. The Saturn and Virtual Fighter were rarely parted.

I'd love to see if anyone recognizes this one. Shark Attack's a shmup/bullet hell like game made by Renard back in like 2010. There's much more, I just happened to be playing this earlier.

Come back, man. This game only gets good once you get the hang of the parkour system

Just old. You gotta try again

I started playing Genies and Gems and then Panda Pop...I surprisingly ended up liking both

I play Pac Man every now and then to pass the time despite the fact that Pac Man is old now...I ended up enjoying Etrian Odyssey but I have yet to finish it

I really enjoyed a Spyro GBA game I played as a kid...Rocket Power Dream Scheme and the finding Nemo game for the GBA....a bunch of other stuff

The first couple levels are awesome but after Microsoft acquired them it felt like they just phoned in the rest of the game to ship it as quickly as possible.

What do you mean by "F"?, Red Eclipse somewhat alive. This month i saw a spike in the playerbase and some old players came back.

pls play this game (we will have a tournament this summer https://redeclipse.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1178&sid=2e5e11060cd0b48cf5d5edd429b14bf6)

Commandos: Behind enemy lines.

Isometric game is a real-time tactics game set in World War II. Got a demo from PC gamer in 1998 and played it until the CD was useless.

Not free or Abandonware but -85% off in steam. Like .50cents of a dollar.

I've never really played old school arena shooters much but recently got into Xonotic. It's a lot of fun and not completely dead. Most of the time you can find a server with a few people in it.

For some reason I love this but can't get into quake live. Quake's movement is really hard to learn compared to Xonotic.


It's free and open source for anyone that wants to try it.
