Awesome answers! I think I have my questions answered.

Even though I'm not looking to get into playing games, I'm actually considering getting a gaming set-up at home. Having watched these playthroughs, I'm really impressed with the visuals and I think it could open up my eyes and mind to new worlds. One of my biggest issues when writing scripts is my inability to think large.

Thanks again!

Rene, I probably will hit you up on that offer.

My kids do all of the gaming... we have two Xbox Ones, a PS4, and a dedicated gaming PC, as well as PS4 VR and the Lenovo VR.

Personally, I don't do much of it these days unless a game with a good story comes out and I want to play through it. I've tried to win a few contracts writing for games but never managed to get in on one. Writing for a big game like GTA would be better than selling a script to Hollywood.

We actually have a member here who goes under the user name Dr. Mabuse, who writes for the big games. He hasn't been around here in a few years now though, but occasionally pops up on FB. He's a VERY good writer and is also a Brit. He wrote one of the funniest OWCs ever. It was a western and featured characters from SS. It probably wouldn't be funny now if you don't know the characters, but if you knew them, it was really really great.

I have an older gaming laptop and an XBOX 360, so I'm limited in what I can play now. Recently I've been playing Civilization VI, Subnautica, Frostpunk, and The Long Dark.

The Long Dark is possibly my favourite game ever.

I have that in my Steam account. I love strategy games and have played all of the Civs since number 3. I've also played all of the Total War games... partly because of what they teach me about history. I recently bought 'Kingdom Come, Deliverance' and played through several hours so far. It's an open world RPG set in medieval times.

I have lost so much of my life due to the Total War series (they have focused too much on their Warhammer series lately though) - There used to be a TV show where they used the Total War engine to recreate historical battles and the contestants had to try and win the battle - was very good.

Is Kingcome Come worth it? I've had my eye on it for ages - ever since they were crowdfunding to get it made.

I'll have to check it out. The combat reminds me of the Elder Scrolls series (Daggerfall was my fave of those) and not as complicated as The Witcher series.

It's a little glitchy, but there's a lot to like and appreciate. It may not be for you in the end, but I think if you don't at least have a go that you will be missing out. It's different to anyhting else I've ever played. It's slower, more true to life. The battle system is difficult to learn and there's a lot to learn, so it takes time and effort. The horse riding seems a little clunky but they may be because I haven't ridden enough. Everything takes maintenance, so you have to wash regularly, and your food spoils over time.

Total War: Three Kingdoms is being released later this month. I usually wait for games to drop a little in price before I buy them though. It also helps to wait for the genuine reviews to come in.

That's the purest survival game there is and really puts the rest to shame.



Love the Civ games and Total War... Europa Universalis IV is great too.

Most addicting games of all time for me are probably Morrowind, Path of Exile, and Gwent.


That rug really tied the room together.

There is an Indie zombie survival game on Steam called Project Zomboid - I haven't played in a while but it's addictive and bloody hard to survive

Yeah, it's pretty cool. Especially when you crank up the pack sizes. 7 Days to Die is great too if you like building giant zombie death trap fortresses.

Is there simply a character who plays a fictional game in the story, or will this get into mods (given the horror genre, maybe a mod that somehow makes the game actually dangerous)? Games only tend to have a modding community of the game has a dedicated fan base, which should hold true even for a fictional game in a film.

Then you would have like the original Civilization, it teaches you that any mountain could explode in a volcanic eruption... unless the closest city has a temple in it

haha, we have to forgive some elements that are there for gameplay reasons. I learned a lot playing Civ. I used to prefer Alpha Centauri though to be honest, which was kind like mankind's sequel. Playing Civ these days isn't as much fun. I played Civ6 on Emperor level and won a couple of times. Then I moved to Immortal level and got beat pretty quickly... and then I got bored and haven't played it since. I'll still buy Civ 7 when it comes out, most likely.
