Free Games Are Best Games

Games People Play is where to discuss personal computer, video game console, and arcade hardware and software - be it RPG, Sim, Strategy, Fighting, Action/Platform, or any other category. Although discussion of modern platforms/software will most likely dominate, discussion of classic videogame/computer hardware and software is always enjoyable, and certainly welcome - ESPECIALLY since there are public domain/shareware emulators of nearly every older computer/console available these days. Here's a taste of what awaits you: Nintendo-vs-Sega-vs-Sony, Console-vs-PC-vs-Mac, Hardware spec sheets/information, Industry news and discussion, Software reviews, IRC conference announcements/Reports, Emulators, Emulators, Emulators! ... and much, much more!

EGS weekly games are still a thing, even tho they've said multiple years now they'd stop.

Today's game is:

Frostpunk

"ABOUT THE GAME
Frostpunk, the newest title from the creators of This War of Mine, is a society survival game where heat means life and every decision comes at a price. In an entirely frozen world, people develop steam-powered technology to oppose the overwhelming cold. You face the task of building the last city on Earth and securing the means necessary for your community to survive."

https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/p/frostpunk

As an aside, technically not free, but Amazon Prime's monthly games includes Battlefield 4 this month. Bigger title than they usually give out, so figured it's worth a mention. They do a lot of like...cosmetics and shit for f2p games. Lame as fuck.

No, it sucked when I played it. Too many glitches. Play GTA5 if you want an awesome open world game with great gameplay and good graphics.

Oh, here's a little tip: Sometimes Epic will give away free games then GIVE YOU A COUPON FOR MONEY OFF ANOTHER GAME. I recently got Read Dead Online by getting a free game then using the $15 coupon mixed with the already discounted price to get it for free.

Nights is pretty good. It's really just a time attack game where you fly around levels but it has a certain dream like quality that I'm certain was done on purpose. The sound track is also very dream like. I bet if you got baked off your ass and played the game you'd pass out with a smile on your face. The real treat is Christmas Nights. It was a demo that they put in with video game magazines back when it first came out. All the music was Christmas type music with snow and Christmas trees/lights. Maybe I'm looking at it through rose colored glasses, but I remember it just being a joy to play, even if it was rather simplistic.

I know it doesn't look like much now, but imagine this out when the N64 was out.

Any idea why Epic is pushing Sega games so hard? Not that I'm complaining

My guess is EPIC is trying to compete with Steam and is willing to do just about anything to take market share. Sega is a company that hasn't been doing great for the past 20 years. Seems like a match made in desperation to me.

Sega has been doing great in the software sector though. Stepping away from hardware was, unfortunately, the best thing they ever did in terms of money.

Also: Epic is arguably better than steam because Epic only features good games, where Steam features a TON of shovelware
