Games To Play Between Installments

This should be a good one to return to. Recommend games to play in the meantime instead of waiting for Walking Dead. I'm not going to suggest genres or whatever, but for mine I'll start with substitutions in case someone wants something similar. Feel free to suggest anything else.

Games Like Walking Dead:
Fahrenheit / Indigo Prophecy: Two names for the same game. Pretty linear and tough to lose. Control three different characters in a story about cults, mystic powers and a missing third act. Dialogue trees aren't bad, choices don't matter much and QTEs are handled by a Simon Minigame. (PC, PS2, XBox, 360)

Heavy Rain: The spiritual successor to Fahrenheit. Every choice seems to do something and the story can go to many places along a linear track. Everyone can die in the finale and the game will still go on to a satisfying ending. (PS3)

Silent Hill Shattered Memories: In Silent Hill 1, you played as a guy who went to a foggy hell to rescue his daughter. This is that story again, but told through therapy sessions and chase sequences. You change the world by periodic evaluations and by interacting with the world (ie, the game takes notes if you ogle sexy images). It's survival horror, which may turn some off but has some good replay value. (Wii)

The other side of this is the adventure game. Point and click your way through a (usually funny) story, solve puzzles and check Universal Hint System when something doesn't make sense.

Adventure Games
Tales of Monkey Island: You're Guybrush Threepwood, a seasoned Mighty Pirate, and you fight your old nemesis LeChuck in the 5th installment of a series of 4 good games (1, 2 and 3 were good). Point and click through 5 COMPLETED episodes. Yay. (PC, Wii)

Full Throttle: Don't want something so silly? Play the story of Ben, the leader of the Polecat biker gang. Flying cars are phasing out bikes, so it's up to you to protect the last manufacturer. Most puzzle solutions involve injury. (PC)

Psychonauts: Want the depth of an Adventure Game without the wonky control? Psychonauts is an action platformer where you play as a kid at a psychic summer camp. Learn to burn things with your mind and earn the title of Psychonaut. Come for the pretty colors and silly designs, stay because the world is batshit insane and stay out of the secret room. (PC, PS2, XBox)

Any other suggestions?

  • Kinda cant believe I didnt mention this before but,

    Utherverse.com

    I've been a part of this community going my 6th year (anyone catch the reference?)

    It is an Adult based virtual community (18+)

    Though there is adult content in world, let me ensure you all it is NOT a porn site.

    It is free as a basic member though you do have content limits.
    Vip is unlimited content and cost's $20/month

    But, regarding the cost.. The in-world currency is known as Ray's.
    You can earn Rays in a variety of ways and even pay your monthly subscription with them making your VIP status generally Free, and even cashout for RL money..

    2000Rays = $130

    If you are familiar with Photoshop and can make virtual clothing, that's the BIG money maker.. Ive seen several top designers who've made over a million Real Life dollars designing and selling virtual clothing.

    Utherverse is a social site with many clubs, events including charity events, you get multiple properties to decorate or build yourself.

    The other big potential money maker is Decorator.. That's what I do.

    I build things like houses, clubs, cities, spaceports ETC. Pretty much whatever you can imagine, you can build.. then just sell them to whomever for Rays.

    So, it's something that can be free and earn you real money. Meet people, make new online friends..

    Of course not for everyone.. but is free to checkout..

  • erm wow mutt that's looking alot like spam there...

  • I have a fun game...it's called life, download it for free, all it requires is walking out of your door!

    how do you figure? I posted only the name of the site, what it is and very little of what it includes.

    I posed no links, no screenshots!

    there is even a referral reward if I had posted my profile and someone joined from there, I would gain a few rays.. I didnt even do that!

    There is no difference in what I posted than anyone else describing any other game on this thread.

  • Try RPG's or action/RPG's like Rainbow Moon, Mass Effect 2 and 3, Resident Evil 4, and try any God Of War title so you can take out your frustrations!

  • Grand Theft Auto is my favorite RPG.
