Have you been spending hours trying to pass a level? Or maybe you are completely addicted to a newly bought game. Do you have a question about a game or would like to share something else? In the Weekly Discussion Thread, you can do it all!

Please don’t forget to use the spoiler tag as soon as you start talking about a storyline.

Hi there, I'm a new mod for this community and I'd like to start out by collecting some ideas for upcoming weekly discussions. We're planning on pinning one discussion post a week, every week, each one being about a different aspect of gaming. The type of stuff we're looking for would be:

  • Genres (Puzzle, Roguelike, FPS, 4X, etc.)
  • Themes (The feelings or ideas a game conveys - isolation, anti-consumerism, hope, memory, etc.)
  • "Examples of X" (Things in games that you like* and find notable - good representation, humor, well-written grief, immersion, etc.)
  • Mechanics (parrying, critical hits, crowd control, diegetic feedback, etc.)
  • Game development (Stuff related to the development of games - delays, remasters, ports, glitches, etc.)

*We want to encourage positive discussions of games, generally. Criticism is warranted, but we must be mindful to not degrade into the flamewars that often crop up around this sphere elsewhere.

Things of this nature that you would want to see future discussion threads focused around. Toss anything you got down in the comments!

What are your favourite shoot em or run and gun games?

I've always enjoyed playing games such as Gunbird and Metal Slug, both were on PS2 for me as my only proper exposure to those games. Really loved them!

What are your favourites? Any recommendations?

I just received this email saying that the response "did not respond directly to the request of the petition"

You recently signed the petition “Require videogame publishers to keep games they have sold in a working state”: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/659071

The Petitions Committee (the group of MPs who oversee the petitions system) has considered the Government’s response to this petition. They felt the response did not respond directly to the request of the petition. They have therefore asked the Government to provide a revised response.

When the Committee receives a revised response from the Government, we will publish this and share it with you.

Thanks, The Petitions team UK Government and Parliament

I've been playing through all the numbered games and its been great. I could write an essay or two on any of them. In general I'm only including base games and no expansions or DLC so it wouldn't be a huge undertaking to beat 11, but I'm trying to see if it's worth it from others who have done the marathon.

I was already a XIV player before I started this so that base game has been covered for awhile now.

Though the way the leaker describes it makes it sound more like a 3rd person MOBA than a hero shooter.
