Those point-and-clicks from Humongous Entertainment that I loved playing as a kid (i.e. Freddie Fish, Putt-Putt, Pajama Sam, etc.). Sometimes I feel like I should buy digital copies of the ones I had growing up on Steam just to give myself a nostalgia trip, and maybe give some of the ones I didn't have growing up a look.

You could also always use some of them as source material for your videos too. That's what I've done with my older Lego games like Lego Rock Raiders and Lego Racers.

Oh god, I loved Lego Rock Raiders growing up. That was a fun management game, and I obtained it and a few other Lego games in a CD combo pack that Costco used to sell back in the day (I believe it came with Lego Island, Lego Chess, Lego Creator, and I think Lego Friends, which was something made for girls, so I didn't bother). It's a shame that the developer, Data Design Interactive, would go on to make infamous shovelware for the Nintendo Wii (i.e. Ninjabread Man).

Disney Interactive Storybooks on PC. I freaking loved them. I still play them. I don't care lol. Nostalgia can't die

I remember the commercials for the storybooks, when they played before the movie on VHS tapes. They looked so fun, but since I wasn't the kind of child that would ask for new things, I just appreciated the neat graphics that I saw in the commercials.

On topic, I used to have a guilty pleasure in Pokemon GO, which I played for a good while after its release. It was buggy, repetitive, unfair, and even kind of bland in hindsight; however,it was still cathartic building up the strongest species to their greatest potential, then using them to gain a foothold in gyms and take down legendary beasts. It was also exciting coming across places that I would have otherwise never been to in my everyday schedule, even with the many years I lived in this city.

However, the trackers being taken down took out a large reason why I played the game, which was hunting down the Pokemon with the highest IVs. The Community Day-exclusive moves were the straw that broke the Camerupt's back for me, as it made the game too stressful to keep caring about: I don't want to fear evolving my top-IV Pokemon too soon, only for a Community Day for that species to be announced, and miss out on the special move that could only be achieved through evolving during that time period. I gave up with the release of the Larvitar Community Day announcement, which is for the better: my work schedule has taken up the time I would have spent playing Pokemon GO.

ARK: Survival Evolved

Almost everyone I know treats the game like a swear word. I understand the hefty price tag, but I bought it in its alpha stages on sale at Steam. For me it runs fine on my computer and there is so much in-game content it's unbelievable. The AI is honestly not perfect, but it's fine and the bugginess of the game is completely exaggerated by early-access elitists that will shit on everything that is not a 100% complete game, or they try running the game on a device that they know can't run the game. Yes its also very hard, but at the same time exploring this vast island whilst minding your own business is just a breathtaking experience. It's another one of these games where you don't need multiplayer to have a good experience.

Also you can tame fucking Dinosaurs! What is not cool about that?!

Mediocre flash launch distance games are a guilty pleasure of mine I indulge in every couple years or so. I suppose there's something oddly satisfying to the very quick sense of progression and upgrading they give.

 I completely forgot about them, but I like them every now and then as well. Two in particular that I used to play were Monkey Kickball and Penguin Launch 2 (which is a pretty messed up game thinking back; you basically play as a yeti whacking penguins with a baseball bat).

Another few games that I must admit, I play every now and then are the Dismount series. Again, they have a very messed up premise, and they're both very dated (about 15 years old) but they're somehow addictive. There's one called Porrasturvat (Stair Dismount) where you push a ragdoll down the stairs and get points for how much damage you do to it. The other I play, which is my favourite out the two, is Rekkaturvat (Truck Dismount), which has a similar aim but instead you damage the poor dummy with a moving lorry driving into a wall (you can put the ragdoll in the lorry or on the lorry if you'd like).

I realise this makes me sound really sadistic lol
