What games give the best feeling of adventure?
Tears of the Kingdom.
>>638378151FFXI, classic, on a pserver. Alternatively elden ring if you hate mmos i guess
>>638378857or try ffxiv if you like actually fun mmos that aren't dead
Dust: An Elysian TailSome of the dialogue can be a bit cringe but the art direction, exploration and platforming are outstanding. We'll worth $10 or however much it is on Steam these days
>>638378151The japs have been killing it lately. Elden ring and totk are some of the best adventure games we've ever had.
>>638378151saddest part of this series is that this is the very last time of adventure in Middle Earth, after LoTR all of the fantasy races go extinct or disappear and magic leaves the world to make way for the grey dominion of humanity. I'll never understand why Eru/Yahweh chose this course for the world, or maybe it's just a fantastical rationalization for the disenchantment of the world from a heavily religious man. Grim, Feanor was right
>>638378421>>638378737>totkpeople are just building hoverbikes and skipping anything remotely adventurous now
>>638379457hoverbikes are eagles
Not the conventional answer, but Octopath II gave me the feeling of adventure. Start as your chosen protag, go around picking up others, and venture the world at your own pace. Going into an area a dozen levels higher than you and barely scraping through to the next town always felt rewarding, especially since you know there's new quests to find and townspeople to interact with. Treading into some cave/dungeon off the beaten path and finding a boss and/or treasure that gives you an entirely new strategy in fights. Finding out that due to all this exploration you've accidentally cleared a dozen quests before even accepting them.It's not for everybody, but I was thoroughly entertained for 80 or so hours, and I didn't even do the superboss.
FF6/chrono trigger, Windwaker/OOT/MM/TP, elden/Dark souls 1/demons, Dragon age origins, Kotor 1&2, ICO games, too many to namePoint any clickys like monkeys island and sierra games do it for me too
>>638378151I try to get that feeling from ttrpgs, but sadly everybody is too busy wanking over character builds and nobody cares about exploring or adventuring anymore.
>>638380106Her hair is awful, kind of grosses me out, but I'd take one for the team.
>>638378151I want a high fantasy open world game where you have a party traveling around a huge land doing quests on a mission to defeat a Dark Lord. There's all these LOTR games being made every so often and none are like that at all when it's perfect.
>>638378701Strangely though that photo does give me a feeling of comradery and adventure. Thank you anon.
Dwarf Fortress: Adventure mode
>>638378151All 3D Bethesda games. But only on your first playthrough.
>>638378151Zelda: OoT, MM, WW, BotWDeath StrandingFinal Fantasy 9 & 10
>>638378151Assuming you're looking for Medieval Fantasy...Dragon's Dogma for the best video game adaptation of the monomyth.The Witcher 3 in regards to worldbuilding and side stories.
>>638380224>everybody is too busy wanking over character builds and nobody cares about exploring or adventuring anymoreI hate that, too. I'll spend a week or two brainstorming characters and crafting one that I can slot into the DM's world naturally, I'll make an entire backstory and hand it over to him to incorporate (or not) however he wants, and then every other motherfucker takes double the time figuring out how hardest to metagame and make the strongest party possible. That shit is so incredibly boring. Interesting Party > Strong Party every time. Treating the DM like an enemy instead of trusting him to play to your strengths is how campaigns go to die and I'm so sick of it.
>>638379119Can u fuck the fox thoOr whatever that cute thing is
>>638378506>>638378737>>638379457then just don't make them retard, lmao
>>638380530This, i noticed that it was realy fun playing them for 1st time but i will never repeat.
Why Elden Kino of course
>>638378151Here's your genuine answer, OP.
>>638381112>furshityiff in hell
>>638378151Beyond Good and EvilARK (when you play new maps for the first time)
>>638380951Exploration was the only fun part about it and the world felt soules. IDk how all modern games manage to do it. Is it graphics geting too realistic/good resulting in generic feeling?
>>638378151Link's awakening and a link to the past for me, 2D Zeldas capture that feeling better.Morrowind too. Planning to explore a section of the map or a trail you've never wandered into, prepping your spells like levitation, water walking, underwater breathing and fortify acrobatics to help you traverse the land and the water, help you look for treasure in caves with night eye, hauling ass back to a city or town under the rain and selling your wares, sitting around an Inn and reading a book you found.
>>638380951>>638381328>Flat as fuck exploration that basically just pads out time in between combatElden Ring is a great Souls game trapped on a shitty overbloated diorama
>>638378151King's Field IV.You just have to trust me on this one and play it.
>>638381680Souls combat is trash.
>>638378151Real answer? None. Not a single one. Not a single video game in all of history and probably not for another 25 years
>>638378151No one will acknowledge this because muh indie tumblr artstyle but carto by a country mile. no other game can replicate the feeling of knowing nothing of your surroundings and slowly mastering/using the terrain and resources to your advantage as you continue to explore these foreign and often deeply cultural lands. it skips the retarded "muh scale" problem by making the cartography map change the landscape so you will always feel like you have gone on a grand journey even with a small set of tiles because of how many times those tiles are traversed and how many dynamic uses they have. finally you must learn the cultures and customs of the people living in the land to conquer the challenges present in the wilderness. Objectively the best adventure exploration game of all time is CARTO
>>638378151Your best bet is an mmo, even if it's "dead." Feels like the only game genre that has big enough worlds that you can explore around in.
>>638378151for me, it's Lunar 1 & 2 and Grandia.
The best you've got are old JRPGs and CRPGs. But if you've lost your child's heart, you'll never appreciate them like we did growing up. It's hard to feel that way again though, since so much of the charm, at least for me, came from the fact that I was one of the only kids in a 100 mile radius playing the games I had. It felt like a much more personal experience.
>>638378151skies of arcadia
>>638378151Nothing even came close to vanilla WoW, it was the literal GOAT
>>638381243Best game of 2022 faggot. Suck my dick.
>>638383639A pretty mediocre map. Any sense of wonder you got out of it was 85% due to the music.
>>638378932my man. vanilla even. add mods and it's not even close
skyrim is so fucking boring
Gothic 1 and 2
>>638383863You think the coomers who play it don't know that?
>>638378151Fallout 3 in 2008. New Vegas was pretty damn good as well.
>>638378151Tabletop RPGs with your bros. Bonus points for B/X D&D Hexcrawls.
SKYRIMTHIS MOTHERFUCKER SAID SKYRIMHOLYSKYRIM
If all fails, you can always pick the ttrpg of your choice and play solos using oracles (Mythic GM Emulator is the most widely used). You don't get the social experience, if you play vidya in the first place that shouldn't matter too much.
>>638384846shadowbringers looking lit on the new engine
Xenoblade chronicles X is the only game I've ever played that felt like a full on adventure. So good
>>638385837I've heard that one is good, but I can't bring myself to play it because the rest of the series appears quite different.
>>638378151Baldur's Gate 1/2.Camradery.Adventure.And steel on steel.The stuff of legends.Right, anon?
We all know its Elden Ring and in their hearts the contrarians do too. The dystopian tech version of this meme is Cyberpunk 2077. If Tears of The Kingdom was on good hardware with a competent writing team along with a dev team willing to put some more work in it could have been the ultimate game for this type of feeling but sadly it fell short for me. Onto waiting for Elden Ring 2 now...
>>638378151Tabletop roleplaying games like Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder, assuming you have (or are) a good Game Master. No videogame will ever compare.
>>638380881>don't engage in game mechanics that are shoved down your throat to have fun
>>638378151Dragon dogma, Elden Ring, and Morrowind for me.
>>638388042>The dystopian tech version of this meme is Cyberpunk 2077how many open world dystopian games out there?
>>638379119The furry bait thing stopped me from enjoying the game with its constant moaning voice
