I suddenly find myself with a gaming PC, so now I'm trying to remember all the games I ignored because I always used old PCs or because they don't run on Linux.

Sooo, recommend me your favourites? I like open world exploratory games, and atmospheric games like Hollow Knight.


I'm more than happy to try out new things! Probably not triple-A shooters or strategy games, but everything else is fair game, heh.

I worded this poorly: I *used* to be restricted to Linux, the new PC will run Windows.

@rixx I recently discovered teeworlds.com/
It's a 2D multiplayer shooter / jump and run game and it's open source. It even runs on linux, can definitely recommend it :)

@rixx If you are on Windows, get a Xbox game pass. It’s ridiculously cheap and you get a good selection of games.

@falk Thanks! I'm not really looking for a huge selection right now.

@rixx No, but for 4€ per month it’s cheaper than buying all the games you want to try ;)

@falk That would be correct if I was looking to try a large number of games right now. As I said, that is not what I am doing.

@rixx if you like RPGs, Disco Elysium seems to be crazy good (but also crazy). my first char used to talk to everybody about the communist world revolution until he somehow lost his mind because he lost himself in conspiracy theories (and I didn't even make it more than 2 hours or so into the game). 😎

@rixx If you have multiplayer stuff feel free to ping me

@Zianor Will do! I don't tend to do multiplayer because I find it stressful, but I might reconsider in the future.

@rixx Factorio - if you have too much time on your hands

@qch3n Factorio is super aversive to me, as is the entire class of games.
