Baldur's Gate 3 - (2023 game) logo 2

Roam around harassing NPCs and accidentally-clicking in combat.

It has some really obvious and fundamental flaws that make it just terrible to cope with. I feel like I have to struggle against its design. The abilities are buckshot across the interface, the inventory is a hot mess, and combat is awkward and unforgiving. The dialog trees are kind of stupid most of the time, and player customization isn't particularly present, which is strange for a roleplaying game. I can only see that this has appeal because there have been no decent AAA games lately, and their variety is absolute shit.

Basically one of those old Flash games where you send units from left to right.

Straightforward and fun! Until you just die for reasons you can't explain!

A pretty basic tower defence game, with the twist that enemies reach your core and carry off power thingies. I think I remember a Flash game like this.

It's kinda neat, but reminiscent of old DOS games; not good enough.

A simple semi-roguelike tactics-esque game.

Lots of fun, albeit somewhat slow.

A pinball game which is absolutely nothing compared to Epic Pinball - (1993 game).

Wow the graphics are bad and the controls are bad.

  • A refresh of the 2007 Xbox 360

A top-down strategy game.

I dunno, it's slow and awkward and has more talking than playing. Maybe I'd just have to wade through for much more time before the real game happens, but I'm not going to give it that chance. A game should be fun immediately.

A cheap knockoff of Smash TV.

Garbage. Has no victory condition. After some time you are guaranteed to die.

A fair tower defence game that really does come across as a mobile game ported to desktop. I got it free from Epic, which is the only thing making me not completely trash this thing.

Fair, with flaws.

  • Supports ultrawide in so far as it paints a design outside of its normal widescreen aspect ratio.
