Valve are still fixing up Left 4 Dead 2, over 10 years after release

L4D2 is the buggiest game I ever played. Random crashes across various rigs and distros. Oddly enough in offline mode, it never crashes.

There are some itch.io games I should give a spin. I hope they are covered. Beacon stands out.

Quoting: EikeI think what really got better (so I seldomly actually make use of it) is that you can take a look on YouTube how the game really looks and "feels". No more pig in a poke.

That is valid. I remember even before youtube going to ebaum's world to see gameplay vids of games that ppl camcorded back then. Help making a good purchase.

I find all of the mixed labeled games to be deceptive. From GOG and others, I just want to see a list of fighting games. That term is known for decades as what it is. How does a farm simulation game get put in there just means that no one is curating properly and/or trying to get some deceptive purchases in there.

It has me keeping my money in my pocket but my game library ancient

Quoting: EikeI get tips for my favorite genre (point and click) from a Facebook group. Or looking at known publishers/developers.

That seems to be the only way for me also. Sign up for newsletter but if the company is massive then you get junk instead of what you want.

Retail gaming has been horrendous for me in the last 10 years in trying to just buy exactly what I want.

This is nice but as a older person trying to game I feel really pushed out. I'm trying to find just fighting games and no matter the storefront I get everything in the sink that even has a fist or kick in the game.

I end just tapping out and not playing any thing at all or playing stuff I already own.

A genre is born: Horde games

Quoting: raptor85Honestly the whole talk about horde games has me installing Ut2k4 again for some invasion, lol, I used to be able to play that for HOURS every night online.

That is my favorite mode to play and I wish more games did this outside of Killer Floor.

Quoting: ShabbyXCrimsonland is a great game, only horde game I've ever played actually. Sucks that they didn't get the credit for inventing the genre

Was thinking the same thing. One of the best co-op experience also for me.

Waiting for my big box edition to come in the mail. I wonder if it has a Linux support. The person that bought it for me did not know that I use Linux so let's see.

It would be nice if they just make it offline easy for locals and home gaming with friends.
