What games do you play other than Doom?

If it's not ZDoom, it goes here.

QA probably found it. The question is, whether anybody had the time to fix it before the game was pushed out.
I would've made Day 1 patches then, if they existed back then.
I don't think you have a very strong grasp of how corporate game development works. When a game releases in a buggy state, it is often because the publisher is not willing to keep putting up more funds for the dev team to keep working on it, and wants to skip to the part where they can sell it. And with a game like STALKER, that game had been in production for YEARS already, and the publisher probably had enough of them dragging their heels on it (regardless of whether the devs actually were doing that or not). It's a business, at the end of the day, and it doesn't make money if people can't buy it.

No such implication was made, and I highly resent being accused of that.

No idea, gaming industry has always been weird like that with botched games at launch after all - Blood 2, Batman Arkham Knight, CP2077, you name it. Stalker SoC had a fairly lengthy development as well, but it's considered one of the least buggy entries, and having played the vanilla game without any mods myself, can surely attest to that, minus the occassional CTD while loading. Call of Pripyat seems to be regarded as being fairly glitch-free too.

Clear Sky? Nah fuck no, this game is a mess on the technical side of things (look up Nikolai on YT, to see the kind of meme-tier stuff you can do with the brokenness of this game) - crashes, broken quests, and even buggy UI elements in widescreen in a time where widescreen monitors were already commonplace (they already were by 2008 when SoC dropped). It also had some broken features such as the iron sights which were even removed for some weapons for no reason at all. Either way, since SRP has been a thing for years now, this game can finally be enjoyed properly, although I'm going to wait for 1.1.4 to drop first because that one is said to cover a few more fairly important issues (such as crashes), so that I can make the most out of the game on my first run. The other good thing about the SRP is that it also restores some cut features such as the aforementioned iron sights too. Sorta similar to the extra package of VTMB's unofficial patch, which also restores cut quests and content.

Next up I'm gonna do Burnout 3 Takedown, and once that's out of the way, I'm torn between Stalker Clear Sky or RE Revelations. The former will absolutely need the unofficial patch to properly enjoy, as the vanilla game is a buggy disaster, hell in vanilla some side quests can't even be completed... By far the buggiest game in the franchise to date.
Believe me, you won't regret playing Burnout 3, I also highly recommend checking out Revenge and Paradise Remastered (although Paradise Remastered needs like 3 community fixes to work "normally", you can find them in the Burnout Hints Discord).

I get on a kick for "space sim" games every couple years, and recently I've been loving Everspace 2 actually.

It's not even really a "sim", it's an arcade space RPG shooter, but... this one is scratching all the right itches that I didn't know I had. I bounced off Elite Dangerous after 40 hours with little but disappointment, but only 15 hours into Everspace 2 I feel like I got more than my money's worth (even though I bought it full-price at $50). It's like what I always imagined Privateer or Freespace was meant to be.

If anyone's got that hankering for some satisfying 6-DOF shooting and jumping around star systems, highly recommend trying the demo.

A mish mash of games here and there, games from Itch.io , some games I bought on steam, recently played an arcade game bought on steam from the SNK collection, also playing a ton of Avadon: The Black Fortress to enjoy the story.

I want to play much more then that but this laptop, while reliable and tough, is not a high end gaming computer.

I second it, that Everspace 2 is a challenging and rewarding experience, which has good graphics and gameplay

A few of the games/game franchises I have played to note

- Halo(I am a huge Halo Fan and as of the making of this post, Halo The Master Chief Collection has the most playtime on my Steam.)
- Touhou Project
- ULTRAKILL
- Melty Blood Type Lumina
- Left 4 Dead 2
- Quake (it was alright.)
- DUSK
- Fallout New Vegas and Fallout 3 (Tale of Two Wastelands is so fucking good. Shame New Vegas is held together by prayers and the souls of the innocent)
- Devil May Cry 5
- Minecraft


And thats off the top of my head. On my to play list is the Shadow Warrior trilogy, Fate/Extella Link, Celeste and POSTAL Brain Damaged.

I enjoy games like Hotline Miami and OmniBus, but I also appreciate various games across different genres, such as The Legend of Zelda series, Portal, and Celeste.
