Friday Night Fights: Comfort games

(Pro-tip - Hire lots and lots of handymen, that puke ain't gonna clean itself up!)

Comfort games.

We all have one. It's a game that we always find ourselves returning to, time and time again. For me, it's RollerCoaster Tycoon. It doesn't matter what AAA game is currently launching or already on the market, when I need that "fix", I always turn to RollerCoaster Tycoon. I've beaten the game dozens of times, finished every scenario and completed both expansions.  

My wife has her own comfort games. Always by her side is a DS, 3DS and Wii U. In the DS, New Super Mario Bros. - in the 3DS, Super Mario 3D Land and almost always playing on the Wii U, New Super Mario Bros. U & New Super Luigi U. I've literally seen her beat each game from start to finish a dozen times. Weird.

Here's the part where you, the community at large, tell me;

What's your comfort game?

 

OK, let’s get to the real reason why we're here: the GAMES!

Friday Night Fights

New to FNF? Read this! Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It's a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!

The planning for FNF starts in the forums, where community members sign up to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up in the community blogs thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers, and I recap it all here on the front page to give it a bit more exposure.

To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! If you'd rather host something yourself, sound off in the comments section below!

Which of these looks most like Mii?

There are a lot of weird quirks brought about by existence. One of them is that we all exist in varying relationship to other people, particularly larger than life figures. But larger than life figures aren't even exempt. As ...more

Forget zombies, bears are the best part of H1Z1

H1Z1 is a game about surviving the zombie apocalypse. It should be a game about surviving the bear apocalypse, because they are way fucking scarier than any zombie. But, maybe that hits too close to home since bears migh...more

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is out today, and it kicks the crap out of All the Bravest

Final Fantasy: All the Bravest was a travesty. It played itself, it was pretty abrasive in its pandering, and the microtransactions were so pushy that it was hard to enjoy it without feeling like you were constantly being sold something. Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is another free-to-play game in the same vein, but it's a much better effort that doesn't feel straight-up insulting to fans.more
