Sushies into Interactive Fiction? I'm once again looking into it, and I also want to write some.
I like the idea of making a virtual world to explore. I also like it as a medium for worldbuilding. Then there is also it's value as a literary medium. Like a step further from traditional linear storytelling (not to diminish the value of it of course).
Along these lines I ask you, do you have any preferred genre or style of IF?
One specific I'm wondering about is the distinction between a short story with a clear impact and carefully crafted to deliver that impact, or perhaps a long and involved story with several branches on an open world?
There's so much variation here that I'll probably be bringing up more questions in the future. In the mean time feel free to bring out your own ideas, and for those who actually do write, let's get your thoughts on design.
Also, What is your favorite game? Advent? Zork? Hitchhiker's? I'm a big fan of Suspended though I haven't by far made much progress…

So, I ended up going on IFMud and asking the residents there, and from my description they knew right away which game I was talking about. The text adventure I lost that I really liked was called "Losing your Grip" by Stephen Granade. Highly recommend. https://ifdb.tads.org/viewgame?id=folz7olvvczasp88

Been having a go at Anchorhead recently, really improves the mood to add a backing soundscape, it's set in a rainy coastal town so this ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ppYmntFVY3g ) fit really well. Haven't gotten very far, but what I've seen I like, only gotten stuck a tiny bit, I'm not very proficient at adventure games so most times I try them out I tend to do so. The good atmosphere in this one is keeping me motivated to keep at it without looking at any hints or guides though.

A few years ago I smoked a lot of pot and thus found great entertainment in commentated professional gaming. The way commentators direct your attention and point out important things or just give background information on the players, maps, strategies and so on is really captivating and can enhance the experience of the game a lot.

When it comes to games I haven't played myself, a good commentator, giving explanations on game mechanics and meta, can completely shift my view on the action and appreciation of skill involved. This is prominently in speedrunning the case, where the beauty of tricks or glitches often only comes to shine with the knowledge of how to archive them.

What are your favorite e-sports?

For starters I recommend this post-match analysis of a game between Rapha and Cooller in Quake with Rapha himself explaining everything.

When I was young, my parents didn't have much money, so while I did play games a lot, they were always somewhat old;for instance, my brother and I played CoD 2 (2005) a lot even when MW2 was the big thing. I also fondly remember playing Super Mario 64 and some stuff on the Wii. Anyways, now it seems like the majority of games (big ones at least) are all just FPSs and battle royales and in general a lot don't seem to have much soul. The Outer Worlds just didn't have that FNV feeling. So I've been playing old games and actually having a lot of fun. Got Morrowind recently, which I remember playing a little around the time Skyrim came out/got big. Also a few months back I played N64 LoZ games on an emulator and I think I'm going to do that again. Any other suggestions for older games I might not really remember (or just comments)? Anything goes, these just seem…better but worse in a wierd way.

I'm actually revisiting a childhood (and family) favorite game, Diablo 2 with Project Diablo 2. It's a hell of a mod. It's a perfect mix of vanilla diablo 2 with rebalancing and actual "unique" uniques with good end game content. lots of fun builds now viable. It's great.

I've been only playing on Battle.net. The peeps there aren't half bad.

For anyone interested on what I am running, I finished an frozon and got bored of her. Building on an enchantress with a unique bow with multishot. It's REALLY fun, but I've rediscovered the Passion runeword with Zeal. Idk what I want now!

I'm really into racing games.
There's something cathartic about constantly improving yourself and shaving milliseconds off of your time, becoming perfect over each iteration over your run.
The physics start feeling just right, you feel the car sliding to corner at a perfect apex on a dime, what a feeling.

Who here likes racing games?

I own a bunch but I identify racing games I play the most into three categories, they're all good for different moods:

Semi-realistic racers:
Rally racing, circuit racing, if it gets too realistic the physics become cumbersome, but it's nice being focused on the weight transfer of the car.
Examples: Sega Rally 2, Dirt Rally, Colin McRae Rally, Gran Turismo.

Mindless tuning racers:

What's the status on that? The last time I heard anything was early last year when someone sent me the backer build and confirmed that the physics are still complete bunk. It's a damn shame too, I like the concept and the soundtrack is absolutely spot on, but the gameplay itself just feels like a substandard Outrun 2 clone and it just isn't enjoyable.

I only ever played the pre alpha they released way back and loved it. I don't do kickstarters so I never got to play any of the recent versions. I'll be disappointed if they ended up changing the game for the worse.

They just released a backer update yesterday ( https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1910344764/drift-stage/posts/2158029 ) so the game's still in active development. Hopefully we can play it sooner rather than later.

Found another cryptography puzzle game, a free one. Either online at https://manansingh.github.io/The-CryptoGame/thecryptogame_files/index.html or just download it zipped from https://github.com/mananSingh/The-CryptoGame for offline.
Much more hand-holdy than Cypher, longer format explanations of the current method, less to figure out (as far as I've tried it at least, on chapter 3). Tools to solve the cryptograms are included. It kinda feels like if someone had made a game out of mathbook exercise problems. Not a bad thing, just a mood.

There's been a TON of new games coming out for it, very impressive. Among those that came out I'd say tanzer, arkagis and xeno crisis are the most appealing. Paprium came out recently and I've heard praise for it but the moment you make a game for a retro console with added hardware to the cartridge that wouldn't exist or be prohibitively expensive at the time of the console's heyday is the moment I dismiss your game.

The PS1 is so weird, half its catalog is like a crossbreed between old 2D consoles and the other half is 3d that didn't really look that good.
That didn't happen with the n64, most games were just 3d and the 2d ones didn't feature much spritework

It's easiest to start out as War Veteran, most straightforward playstyle (just keep in mind that other classes take a turn for switching weapons).
You get XP by learning of new enemies/items rather than kills, most enemies are only worth killing if they're an obstacle to somewhere you need to be and you can't run around and block the path behind you (doors can be jammed if you have spikes, just press to close the door an extra time after you've already closed it).
You can't spend forever at one depth, you need to budget your mental stability to last you to the stairs downwards.
Potions with negative effects aren't useless, since you can throw them at enemies.
If you don't have a numpad you can move diagonally with Right/Left arrow +Shift for up, +Ctrl for down, but it's much more comfortable to play on numpad. Check the F1 manual for other keys, you'll need most of them.
Undead corpses rise again if you don't destroy them, kick them with same key you kick down doors with.

How the heck do you deal with the invisible guys that show "something claws you"? All my runs that lasted past the 4th or 5th floor have died to them.

There are scrolls of see invisible, and some invisibles are rendered visible just by turning on the lantern. Also the "vigilant" trait shows the location of nearby creatures regardless of visibility.
I usually just outrun them since you don't usually have that many identified scrolls as a non-occultist, and they don't tend to chase you that far and they just hit you if you stay/go somewhere they can reach.

Ah, I always run out of my lantern by then, I gotta use it less. I'll try running away more often too, I really should.

I haven't seen any recently. You could make one. Just go nuts on that screenshot button and write it as you play so that you don't lose track of what happened in the past in the game.
Or at least write it one section at a time, so that it has some sense of narrative and you can be surprised when surprising things happen.
