    Bored, so let's add a pointless poll!

    Which one is the worst?
    [poll]

    • Gunspell - Steam Edition
    • Anna: Extended Edition
    • RC Cars
    • Impire
    • Real World Racing
    • Call of Juarez: The Cartel
    • Hard Truck: Apocalypse Rise Of Clans
    • Daikatana
    • Sam Glyph Private Eye!
    • Voice of Pripyat
    • Shadows on the Vatican Act I: Greed

    [/poll]



  • Hard to beat Daikatana.



  • Call of Juarez looks pretty racist.



  • All of those games are awful except PERHAPS Call of Juarez: The Cartel.

    Somehow you've managed to grab a screenshot that actually makes Daikatana look maybe kind of ok.

    BTW "Impire" is a "Theme Park Tycoon"-style game skinned to look like a dungeon instead of a theme park in the naive attempt to get people looking for a true successor to Dungeon Keeper to buy it without reading the description too closely. Incredibly, there are TWO of these games on Steam, the other one is called "Dungeons".

    (War for the Overworld is a game that's actually accurately attempting to be like Dungeon Keeper-- unfortunately it's one of those early-access development hell titles. For like a year and a half.)

    What about the iOS version? *ducks*

    Never played any of these. Too many good games to play (or legendarily bad to watch playthroughs of) to care about the shovelware.



  • I just find it amazing that Dungeon Keeper was so good and so well-remembered that there's a market for "game which kind of pretends to be Dungeon Keeper but isn't at all" 14 years later.



  • The sad thing about Daikatana is that they could have made it 50x better by simply removing the stupid sidekicks.

    You just described Dungeon Keeper.


  • :belt_onion:

    Wait, there's a "Theme Park Tycoon" game where you can pick up fanboi visitors and drop them near that other theme park to fight rivalling visitors to the death, or a way motivate construction workers by slapping them until they comply?

    That would be quite a non-PC game.



  • Why haven't I ever heard of any of these games? Are they popular with young people? Is this what being old feels like?

    Everyone's excited about Steam, and here I am, playing Lego Batman 3.

    Not even close.

    Oh yes. Mind you, the best “successor” to DK that I've seen over the past decade or so was Evil Genius. It wasn't perfect, but watching agents get blown by a fiendish set of fans into a hidden tank of piranhas did not get old. And it had the greatest ever ending: must push the RED BUTTON!!!

    If you're going to find a copy and play it, do practice the evil belly laugh. It's good for you (and scares everyone else on the continent).

    Evil Geniuses

    Didn't Twitch buy them?



  • @blakeyrat said:

    You're kidding, right? It was made by the same company, had the same core gameplay, the same sense of humor, literally the only thing that was changed was the attractions.

    Oh my god you can click on something and move it around, and people can fight with each other? It's a whole new genre! Besides. theme hospital had that, and it's clearly the same type of game as theme park.

    PC is dead.
