    There are a lot of different ways to approach the game (it is an RPG, after all), though I second Helio's recommendation of a single combat skill to start with (maybe 2 for variety). Training is...

    FWIW, supposedly the devs were being paid very very low wages that made the whole thing unsustainable anyway. And you never know, the future might be VR Space Programme.

    I second (or third) the calls for KSP and flight sims, but I suppose it depends on what you're trying to achieve. Also, no Mount & Blade? That might even work as a Skyrim substitute (sprawling open...

    I should probably have explained what it was. Viz: a space combat game that attempts to be as realistic. It's certainly interesting, though I'm not sure whether it's good.

    I believe there is, but you're a monster for wanting it. Food is easy to come by if you do a little farming. You could also play on a lower difficulty level. I'm still waiting for them to bring back...

    I think that's standard for anglophone countries in general. I don't know how we managed to survive before the postwar migrations.

    OK, I'm off to a mountaintop to build a flesh-koan.

    Speaking of games in which you potter about, I've been playing Starbound 1.0 (the unstable branch on Steam). It's... Pretty good! Also a bit Unstable. There's less grind in the early game than...

    Glad to see I'm not the only one who loves this game. It's interesting that you're so reticent about recommending it, though. To me, this is exactly the kind of game that more people need to play,...

    Jon's election was clearly because he hits things with a sword and has a willy. Aside from being a Stark, those seem to be the main requirements for a king in the North. Poor Sansa doesn't even have...

    Picked up Hegemony 3 for half price on Steam. It's a bit rough around the edges but really very good. The original was an excellent, tense wargame that did a surprisingly good job of modeling ancient...

    I know you mentioned Dragon's Dogma, but if you haven't tried that one, please do. There's also Skyrim, where you can do anything you want and will discover very quickly how you like to play.

    I like the idea of multiplayer in a paradox game, but the time commitment always seems too high. It's a pity no-one makes good strategy games that support play by email anymore.

    HOI3 was a trainwreck, so I'm approaching this one with skepticism, but it seems to have fixed a lot of problems with the previous game and made it generally less fiddly.

    Lots of people play games other than recent AAA offerings, though. Minecraft runs on anything, KSP has a Linux version, etc. The situation is also quite desperate. I really, really don't want to...
