Comfy vidya thread Anon 12/30/2022 (Fri) 19:59:59 No.962
ITT we discuss video games that possess the comfy factor. For me it's all manners of RTS games, taking time to gather resources and build a cool base is great fun. Driving games are cool too, I have fond memories of pic related (although I was pretty bad at it as a kid).
Holy ship, I love Crazy Taxi, good post OP. Personally I think Kirby is essential /comfy/. The nature of the game is pretty lightweight and only becomes slightly harder when you try to 100% it. A shame that emulating them sometimes is impossible (Kirby 64 crashes in some mid bosses for example)
I mean exploration games like Minecraft, Subnautica etc. are really calming for me because It feels good doing things

I've recently been spending my evenings fused with my couch, playing Kingdom Hearts. Sometimes you have to tryhard, but aside from that I'm really enjoying it. >>964 Seconded, Meinkraft and Subnautica are the vidya equivalent of melatonin (especially the latter one with its Solar Fields-like soundtrack).

The Tony Hawk games are all still fun after years of playing them through. The comfiest part is cruising through the levels enjoying the fun music.

Driving games can always be considered /comfy/ They don't ask too much but at the same time you have to not be a bumbling goober. My only issue is that I seem to be stuck with the most formulaic and basic ones. Things like Wipeout or Asseto Corsa are more complicated for me when I just want to be chillin>>964
>>962 >>964 Simulator games in general. In another thread someone mentioned Rollercoaster Tycoon, that was comfy. >>967 >pic 5 Good taste, the City Lights add-on track is top comfy.
>>967 >Diddy Kong Racing The music alone is just so comfy.

I'm a big guy 4 RTS games. They're my favorite genre by far. I really like tile-based puzzle games too. I also like early first-person shooters and older arcade-style action games, but those make me feel more tense than anything. As far as console games go, I mostly stick with the older ones I grew up with and ones I never got around to playing. The NES is the console I find the most relaxing.
Interesting, i was about to make a vidya thread yesterday. My favorites are deadbolt and rainworld. Soothing soundtrack and comfy atmosphere, highly recommended.
>>970 SMW is nice up till now i've still yet to complete all the stages :P
To me there's nothing comfier than sinking in my bed sheets and playing some of those game that are like halfway in between a vn and a puzzle game. I miss my Ds

>>972 It's a game that's close to me heart, even though I never play it by myself anymore. It was the first Super Nintendo game I ever played and is probably the Mario game I feel most nostalgic for after the original (although it's hard to pick). The last time I played I had trouble with all the special stages, even though I think I beat them when I was younger and have no problems with the other ones. As a kid, the Soda Lake level was the only one I remember standing out as one me and my brother had never gotten to because it's the only stage that has those submarine enemies that are featured in the end-game sequence where all the enemies are listed.
>>973 The DS and (maybe 3DS, I didn't have one) were underrated.
>>970 NES games are so hard that I am curious how you find them relaxing. >>975 They both had good stuff but they hurt to play for long periods of time as an adult.
>>975 I don't know underrated but definitely one of the best handhelds >>976 >they hurt to play for long periods of time as an adult That's true, that' s why I stuck with stuff you could play using only the touchscreen.

>>976 >NES games are so hard that I am curious how you find them relaxing. Largely nostalgia for the aesthetic and the games themselves. I don't really like easy games either. People say that the original Castlevania is a hard game, for example, but I've beaten it like two or three times. A lot of the games aren't so hard once you start to recognize patterns and memorize things like level layouts. If I'm trying to beat a game, I usually just train myself with save states on an Everdrive to go through the difficult areas and then do a clean playthrough. I'm far from any kind of a pro. When I was younger, I don't think I cared that much if a game was too easy and really liked stuff like Kirby 64. Nowadays I can still appreciate that for its presentation and my memories of it, but as far as gameplay goes it's lost its appeal. I'm a lot more into challenges now.

>>976 >NES games are so hard that I am curious how you find them relaxing. Not that anon but there are definitely a bunch of NES games you could say are relaxing once you get the hang of them, I always play Super Mario Bros 3, for example. >>979 >People say that the original Castlevania is a hard game Castlevania 1 is 100% muscle memory, I beat it consistently in about an hour. Another game I always play when I have a few hours is the original Metroid, another game that can be berry frustrating if you don't know what to do but once you memorize the map you can just beat it over and over. There are also games which are frigging hard but I don't mind dying because they're so good, like Mr Gimmick

>>980 >Castlevania 1 is 100% muscle memory, I beat it consistently in about an hour. Yeah, exactly. The hardest part is the final boss, but I can easily beat the game without much trouble now. >Another game I always play when I have a few hours is the original Metroid, another game that can be berry frustrating if you don't know what to do but once you memorize the map you can just beat it over and over. That's one I should play more at some point. I usually dislike Metroidvania-type games (other than Clash at Demonhead), but for some reason Metroid appeals to me. I think it's how spartan and somewhat creepy it feels relative to the other games in the series. >There are also games which are frigging hard but I don't mind dying because they're so good, like Mr Gimmick Don't remember how far I got in that one, but the soundtrack is good from what I remember.
>>962 I've been playing Super Mario 64 on my DS which I'd say is pretty comfy. It's too bad I don't have the original version but the DS version is nice anyway.

the new Microsoft Flight Simulator is pretty comfy. They have an activity mode where you can fly bush routes in small planes, where all navigation is by landmarks and the flight plan is written like a guided tour of the region. It's got just the right balance between active and passive to be comf. I like getting up in the air, setting my trim, and then gazing out the window at the scenery going past as I find my way to the next flight leg.
>>983 I love flying IRL the few times I've had the chance, and Flight Simulator looks pretty realistic tbh.

>>988 Great game.
Probably isn't comfy for most, but One Way Heroics+ for me is one of my best comfy games. Whenever I'm in a poor mood, going to that perks me up.
Okay so Controversial pick, but Modded Fallout 4 is comfy to me personally because it feels to me somewhat nostalgic for 2016.

Open file (212.88 KB 1680x1050 growhome.jpg)
While I don't like many games released in the 2010s, the first half or so of Grow Home is quite comfy. It had an open-world sequel called Grow Up, but I don't find it worth recommending. >>1004 The camera in Stronghold is problematic in my opinion. While the pixel graphics can look nice, there's a problem with building walls, when you never know if there's a gap the bandits can get through or not. It pretty much kills the game for me, which is a shame because it does have comfy elements.
I found the DS Castlevania titles to be oddly comfy, especially POR. I really have a thing for Victorian aesthetics.
>>1000 I wood recommend you to install the best mod for stalker: Stalker Anomaly. It combines the best elements from all 3 games : - atmosphere and open world from SOC - faction war from Clear Sky - weapon/armor modification and non-linear quests from Call of Prypiat. It basically run without crushes and bugs for 90 % of gameplay time. https://www.moddb.com/mods/stalker-anomaly

Okay I wanted to ask this - I've been playing Hollow Knight a lot recently (berry addicting). And I was thinking of trying Castlevania SOTN. Many say it's the best metroidvania game out there. But the thing is my dumb ass watched a video showcasing how good the maps and bosses are. In other words, a spoiler video. Should I still play a video game even if I got the spoilers?
>>1018 Silly question. You should still play it because its a fun game.
>>1019 Yeah but the fun in a game stems from unexpected things waiting to leap onto you. Then the experience is geniune. Like I'm gonna try and practice the habit of never looking up a walkthrough for a game unless I REALLY give up. There were times like that. An example wood be Super Mario Sunshine. There was a King Boo boss in the hotel casino level. I had no idea wtf I was supposed to do because the game can't tell me.

>>1018 Yeah you should still play SotN, it's a great game, though I woodn't call it the best metroidvania while this exists >>1020 >the fun in a game stems from unexpected things waiting to leap onto you I believe the fun in this kind of games stems from exploration and figuring out stuff like "How the hell do I open those yellow doors?"
>>1011 minecraft is comfy when you build bridges to cross rivers or islands that close. No more swimming and hoping from the boat , carrying and reusing again in the next body of water.
>>1022 Super Metroid was AMAZING. Like it was a retro game that genuinely got me hooked. I play most retro games because of how fun they are and also how much of a nostalgia fag I am. It was like advertising to me that games like these CAN exist and that it will be fun. Truck that one Norfair secret though. You know which one I'm talking about.
>>1024 >Truck that one Norfair secret though. You know which one I'm talking about I try to 100% the game eberry time but not sure which one you're talking about.
>>1025 You don't know? It's the one where you Xray a wall and it shows that you cant go through it. But you actually can. Sneaky devs wanting you to find that 1% in the next playthrough...
Open file (885.02 KB 904x692 ssslo.png)
>>1026 You mean this one? It's kinda tricky I guess. Thing is I've been playing this game for so long that I feel like I've known these things since forever, so I don't even know how I figured this out, or maybe I just read it in a magazine.
Open file (18.37 KB 640x360 norfair wall.jpg)
>>1027 No no, it's this one. This pic shows that the player has gone past the wall (the right one) but what I mean is that if you xray it before you go in, it shows nothing (making you think you can't pass through it). But you actually could. I am so glad that DEER FORCE did not do this more than once. If the game had half of such secrets, the trust between the tools given and the player wood be broken and it wood make him give up.
>>1028 >the wall (the right one) Sorry I meant the wall that's slightly near the center of the screenshot
>>1028 >>1029 Oh ok that one, but that's not a secret, it's the path you have to follow... I think it's in the same room, the thing about that room is that since it has those firefly things lightning works differently and the X-Ray scope doesn't work. But I think it's just hardware limitations, not devs being cheeky.

>>1033 Same here anon, but for a different reason. I've been playing the ship out of Quake Live recently and while I'm still ship enough that eberrybody wipes the floor with me, it feels good to slowly see the progress in your skill levels and the fact that this game is still there. There can be cataclisms, impending doom etc. and you'll still find someone, somewhere, playing Quake. It's one of those static points in a constantly moving world.
Been playing Umihara Kawase as of late, it's pretty /comfy/.
>>1022 B-but Aria of Sorrow is the best Metroidvania.... I'm actually replaying Super Metroid (right after playing through Aria of Sorrow on it to see if the Eurasia intro rom wood freeze, didn't) on my pocketgo. Lags with all layers showing sadly. I always wanted a gp2x and blah blah blah. It's a nice game but I always feel stuck at one point or another in that snes game. >>1033 >>1035 Quake did have good art.

>>1003 Golden Sun is peak comfy, probably one of my fav games ever, even if it's a bit generic in some parts.
>>1038 I get stuck at bosses often and forgot to super run down the hall to break the floor to power bomb it. That burned me out and I switched to metroid II and are now running in circles trying to kill all the metroids. I've not beaten metroid II before so I feel like I'm missing out. With the gambatte emulator I can choose many fun looking 'mono pallets' and such, super gameboy makes Samus look kinda orange and probably looks the best but I tend to keep vb and 'gb' mode on. But I'll probably stop and play something else on my backlog like Grandia 1 before I end up dying from old age on the game(s) (I've not played). The pocketgo won't allow that though so I figure I might try out Oriental Blue or something instead that I've not played at all as it will run on it and JPRG's are easy so no stress. I've also never played through lunar legends, the gba port wood work on it. Back onto Castlevania, on my normal computer, I was playing the Castlevania n64 and stopped when you have to carry around that bomb without jumping nor being hit. Too stressful D: I quit games a lot in short. >>1039 The first two are indeed of my favorite games ever. I wish my pocketgo could play the second one, it cannot. First one acts like it will be okay though. Gpsp has a page on github somewhere complaining about how badly the second is programmed but I've seen evidence that the second pocketgo (of which you literally cannot buy as it's always sold out) will play it on it's regba, for mips cpu's, the first device is for arm so it can't do that emulator. At the same time I should probably stop using the thing in general but I feel at least safe from my android a bit having an alternative 'in the woods' sized device to rely on. Also technically it can read books but not really with no bookmark nor searching of text files. Also, one could use it's media player but I have not. I like 'general' devices. But anyway, yes golden sun 1 and 2 are great.
>>1040 update: Oriental Blue is about zombies apparently so it might not be technically in a comfy game category.

Just downloaded and played Crazy Taxi for cacas and giggles but stayed for the comfy frenzy feel it gave me. Managed to reach class A after a while. Berry nice 10/10
>>1049 I remember this game..maybe I'll dust off the old PS2 some day.
>>1050 You're gonna be happy for having done it, trust me.
>>1011 I like building "natural" places, ie, digging out a cavern that looks like it came that way. And sometimes adding structures that go with the land instead of flattening out a place and dropping buildings on top of it. Who needs a plains biome when you can make a tree village accessible by vines? A lot of extra work to drag villagers up there (temporary plank/dirt stairs to push them up or a boat up a temporary waterfall with a lead...) but worth it, and an alternative to defending a town with a fence then a row of berry bushes and/or cacti.
>>1003(me) In retrospect (no pun intended) I should put FF9 here for 'comfy' and also lose the Castlevania in that list for something like The Minish Cap or a Mario game like the first RPG one on the SNES of course. I never play FF9 as it lags on my favorite potato a bit. More like skips randomly. Jus' saying, FF7 and Castlevania are dark games really. Metroid Prime 2 might be stressful also even if pretty. Something like Spyro, though far too easy, is comfy. Kirby is a good example of overly easy and baby looking but obviously comfy. This image is merely my fav image image when i should have made another one. Then again it does not need to be 12, so subtracting FF7 and Aria of Sorrow makes it 10 anyway as it might should be, then switch out Echos for FF9 or Mario RPG or something.... Also switch out Twilight for Minish I guess. >ff9 >metroid prime >golden sun >golden sun 2 >megaman legends >megeman legends 2 >cave story >windwaker >chrono trigger >minish cap ....hmmmmm.....

Tokyo Xtreme Racer: Zero is my go to comfy game. It can get tough in the later stages if you're new to racing games, the TXR series, or don't min/max your builds. However, cruising around the highways (even if you don't race) is really comfy to me. Unfortunately after a fair of amount of 6th gen entries the series died after their one and only 7th gen entry, Import Tuner Challenge. Thankfully it has enough of a cult following that there's a one man dev team working on a spiritual successor called Night Runners that I'm really excited for.

Exploration in Souls games is quite comfy even if enemy encounters might not be for you. I think this is arguably one of the things that makes Sekiro so good since you can sneak around unseen or grapple away from most encounters if you just want to explore and sight see. The environments themselves are extremely comfy.

https://smuglo.li/vg/res/10891.html >What is Veloren? Veloren is a FREE AND OPEN SOURCE spiritual successor to the short-lived Cube World. It uses similar combat mechanics to cube world, similar crafting mechanics to Valheim, exploration quirks like BoTW, and a minecraft aesthetic. It has both a third person and first person mode, and is all about running around as cute little cube people and murderhoboing your surroundings (or the villages). It is a community-led project that gets almost daily updates. Most importantly, it can run on potato PCs. The entire server uses about half a gig of RAM. The game can be obtained here: https://veloren.net/

>>1088 It seems you had quite a lot of fun on your minecraft run. Try spawning monsters and do a tower defence scenario.

god games are one of the comfiest genres imo doshin the giant is a nice shrimple one. i also love the aesthetic of populous: the beginning. recently i've been playing some modded minecraft
>>1090 >i also love the aesthetic of populous: the beginning. That's a highly underrated game. I just played a level from Undiscovered Worlds not that long ago, and the game popped into my head again today. Apparently there are still people playing multiplayer, but I've never tried it.
>>1091 yeah there's a decent little community that plays regularly at popre.net they have a matchmaking application, and there's another singleplayer version they have somewhere on there with some little extra patches etc
>>1088 reject modernity, embrace minecraft tradition anon.
i don't have a new game to recommend but i just bought a gamecube and luigi's mansion this weekend and i'm stoked
Monster hunter is great Going to the hub after killing monsters is crazy comfy and I always spend more time there than I should https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBBhBI_Tna4
>>1094 How much was it? Have you been enjoying it? I am thinking about getting one of these but I’m not sure I will use it when I have a nice gaming rig, a laptop, a phone and an iPad mini already.
>>1096 That's the Miyoo Mini right? Those Chinese handhelds are pretty good actually if you have a use case for them (lunchbreaks for instance). Something to consider with the Mini is that it's only about the size of a playing card, so cramping is likely to be an issue.
>>1097 Yeah it’s the Miyoo Mini. It does seem like cramping wood be an issue. I also don’t have any specific games in mind so I’ve been on the fence about getting one. Lunch breaks and playing out in the sun most likely. I don’t really like playing games on my phone for whatever reason. I sweat out of my hands more than anywhere else. I’ve already played through Pokémon back when I was able to run an emulator on my iPhone. Now I’ve already talked myself out of it lol.

Discovering Gun on PS2. It foreshadows what will be the Red Dead Redemption series. Besides the action phases it's bretty comfy. I like wandering in the lands on my horse.

Playing (again) Beyond Good & Evil. I think I'll buy an old Xbox to replay those classics of my younger years.
Just remembered the name of that snowboarding Xbox game I played younger : SSX On Tour. I see it runs on PCSX2 so I know what I will do in a short future. I remember the game had ice music and esthetic and was berry comfy. I turned of the music during the rides so I just listen to the noise of the snow under my bard.

Not all but some point & click are comfy. Currently playing Loom on ScumVM, I like a lot how you do the actions with the music. Once you learned the things it's bretty funny. Also I plan to replay Escape From Delirium, I discoverer it as a kid on a shareware compilation we had on the old computer. It have a nice atmosphere.

I find Monster Hunter World comfy Yeah the late game is hard, like any monster hunter (in fact this is probably the easiest game in the franchise) but whenever it gets too tough you can just go back to earlier levels and have fun, there are a ton of weapons and armors to craft and keep you busy, each weapon has an unique moveset so whenever you get bored of one you can try a new one, it's almost like you're playing a new game. Love the art direction, the monster design is great (although too many monsters look like generic dragons/wyverns for me) and the armors look cool as quack, also you can make layered armor that don't affect the stats of whatever you're using. Only downside is that sometimes I feel guilty killing monsters that are just minding their own business. My favorite monsters are Paolumu and Pukei-Pukei, they're just too cute.
Not working tonite, here I go for some good ol' Splinter Cell on PCSX2.
>>5011 >ScummVM Spy Fox in "Dry Cereal" was one I had fun with as a kid. Being a children's game, it's not exactly difficult though. I don't mind because I'm not good at adventure games. I see The Neverhood has ScummVM compatibility too, but I haven't tried it with that. I probably should at some point just because I remember the demo from when I was a kid.

Dunno why but flying bombers with glass canopies in WW2 flight sims has always appealed to my inner sense of comf. There's tense moments when you're over your target getting shot at by AA and trying to make sure you time your bomb drops just right but the before and after is just the right mix of nothing habbening but also not so little habbening that you're getting bored since you're still flying over enemy territory with a possible interceptor presence. Mix it with proper graphics and especially nice soothing engine audio and the landing approach after a successful mission becomes downright serene. This does however require something like a He-111 with both a nice big canopy and cockpit instrumentation placed out of the way so as not to obstruct the view, it's nowhere nearly as comfy with a conventional cockpit like a B-17 or even the Ju-88 which does have a bubble of sorts but the cockpit instrumentation blocks most of the lower view. >>967 >complex If you want somewhat more autistic comfy drivan I can recommend BeamNG, the game has a whole plethora of autism settings and customization but no set goals beyond what you pick/mod. I usually just spawn some AI traffic and drive around the nice countryside maps.

>>962 Well, allow me to participate... >Phoenotopia: Awakening Metroidvania that shrimply had no rights to be as good and comfy as it truned out to be. Nothing will able to tell you how this game is. Well, maybe some gameplay video, but I didn't try it. Either way, when it comes to comfy - this is peak comfy in my opinion. >Pine Someon calles it a poor man's Zelda, but I've never played any Zeldas, but I don't know. The game is the game itself is definitely in the middle grounds, a small title that is easy to criticize. But I think it is equally easy to concentrate on the good parts and enjoy it. If you launch and like it, then click your fantasy on and let it fill all the empty spots. My fantasy does work like that, so I've enjoyed the game and quite so. And if it doesn't work for you this way - well, just delete and forget. Kickstarter code is THANKS4BACKING - yep, just like that. >Princess Remedy There are two games: In A Heap Of Trouble and In A World Of Hurt. Both are bretty much the same thing. Cute, charming, small games. They pretend to be ZX Spectrum ones, which kinda works for me, because I actually usually play retro stuff. The biggest downside is that both games are short. If you want to go through them, I advice you to check walkthrough and search for anything related to the Jealous Chest if you wish to get 100% in your first try. >Cthulhu Saves The World Complete nonsense, yet surprisingly charming. Your typical JRPG. One of the few games I've completed two times, even if in different modes. There's also Cthulhu Saves Christmas, which is lore-wise a prequel, but technically is a sequel, hence it features pumped up graphics. It also has probably the best New Game + stuff I've ever seen. If you like me and hate New Game Pluses - well, this is one game where New Game + is, actually, not quite a New Game +, so don't skip it this time. >Symphonia Students' project. Berry beautiful. Criminally short. Should be available for free on itch.io and, perhaps, other places. Since it was never expected to be a full-fledged game, it lacks a lot of functionality: among other things, you can't change controls, which in this case is kinda severe because the game was made for the french layout of the keyboard rather than your typical WASD. It can be bypassed with AutoHotKey script (I've uploaded one on itch.io and it should still be in the comments), or by changing your layout to french one. >Sea Dogs series Or bretty much anything else where you can be a pirate, but I like Sea Dogs the most. Sea Dogs 2 especially has some beautiful storm graphics. These game have a community that is still active and provides a lot of mods, so if you are into age of sails, this might be just the thing. >King's Bounty: The Legend That's the only King's Bounty I've played, and I've liked it a lot. Really can't say what in particular was comfy about it, but... it was. The graphics were pleasantly bright, the dialogue was good, the character was awesome, you could marry a pirate girl... or some other girls, if you wish to. Yea, I need to try out later titles one day.

>>7704 Second post, so I can stick in some more screens. >Gemini Rue I feel like there should be at least one point'n'click in my list, and I choose this one. I guess, it is not berry comfy, since it is kind of detective mystery kind of stuff, but, hey, people above posted TES, and TES has all kinds of things, so I guess it fits in the end of the day. What striked me in this one is the ending. I've really liked it, liked the theme that the game played with and liked the thoughts it invoked and theories it proposed. Plus, the aforementioned ending was quite warm and comfy. Or so I think. Cannot really tell you anything else without spoilers. >Republic: The Revolution Once again, not sure if it can be qualified as comfy, since you gotta create a revolution, but something about this game just captivates. Maybe that's because I'm slav, so the whole aesthetic aspect of the game speaks to me. Still, the music, the graphics, the characters... It feel quite comfy to me. Finally, special shout out to all the guys who mentioned driving games in this thread. They work in the same way for me, especially if I can drive a muscle car, a chopper or a hot-rod. Ridge Racer? Yes. Need For Speed? Yes. Burnout? Yes. Forza Motorsport? Yes. Midnight Club? Yes. Give me an american machine and a road - and it will be comfy for me, no matter if it is a vehicular carnage, an arcade or a racing simulator. Some open world games work the same way for me - GTA or Saints Row, for example. But the top of the line, I guess, wood be >Watch Dogs Yep. The berry first one. I was surprised myself, given how much hate this game got at the time of the release. But I've actually tried it two years ago and I've liked it a lot. I've installed a Living City mod, and for the whole week it played like some kind of The Elder Scrolls game: I did not even touch the main plot. For a week I shrimply drove around Chicago on an old muscle car, making money by clearing out glove boxes of the cars on parking lots and then pawning the loot, spending those money drinking and playing poker. That was good. And, well, honorable mention to the The Elder Scrolls series, obviously. My favorite wood be Oblivion. I just liked the color pallette. I like bright colors.

The Donkey Kong Country games especially DKC2 are among the most comfy games to play of all time. Sipping on a nice hot cup of coffee on a cold Winter's night while doing a marathon of 1 through 3 during a night is maximum levels of comfy vidya. More than likely that'll be my night for New Year's Eve.
