Having a bunch of rooms open for an RTS would be a good change of pace. I'm shit at those and don't know anything though.
Starcraft 2, AoE 2 and Dawn of War would be my suggestions

Dawn of war is rather easy to play with assuming anons can port foward. Fuck SC2 though why would you want to play that piece of shit?
Lobby-based bullshit isn't for gamenights though, RTS better suits tournament style brackets and timeframes due to not having client/server "join or leave whenever you want" requiring more coordination.
>Starcraft 2
Other two suggestions are decent though.

Wasn't the main problem with Starcraft 2 it being built around the compfag gookclicker experience to the exclusion of any fun or any enjoyable strategies? Is there even a single RTS still being played that doesn't listen to compfag niggercattle?
There was some fun to be had before the custom lobbies got locked down and all the balance was fuckedSo much so that even the compfags fucked off back to SC:BW again. Add to that the lock in to battlenet and you can throw it in the garbage for a gamenight. C&C TB is better anyway.
how about monster hunter?
I could C&C Zero Hour

A lot of older ones with workarounds like DTA but almost every new RTS targets that market then dies out because PvP players of any sort never mind compfags have always made up a minority of the RTS community.

>Is there RTS still being played
Pretty much all of the classics such as AoE2, Red Alert, Generals Zero Hour, C&C3KW, TotalA, SupCom, War2 & 3, Warzone and who the fuck knows what else have active multiplayer scenes through either official remasters, pirate lobbies or fanmade patches. Some reaching thousand players at peak times, others only scrapping around 100.
Can't say the same about newer games outside of Cossacks 3, although it is just a remake of Cossacks 1 so it doesn't really count.
Replies: >>46053
Everyone wants to be the next gookclick or dota.
World in Conflict is alive too but is technically RTT not RTS. It also has drop-in drop-out play instead of lobbies which worked well in that other gamenight but I doubt there are enough autistic anons around nowadays to fill up a game.
SCII's problems came from three areas mainly. There were others but that was mostly nitpicking.
1. It was built around being an esports game instead of a good game.
2. Actiblizzard couldn't keep their grubby mitts off it and patched out any fun strategies that players came up with instead of allowing the games community to grow and invent new ways to defeat these strategies.
3. I believe it was the Denuvo copyright protection that caused the game to lag even when connected locally during tournaments since they still needed to be connected to actiblizzard's servers. This caused the game to be dropped for a little while until the issue was fixed.
All in all SCII was a disaster and didn't have the lasting potential like it's predecessor because game developers and publishers are now retarded.

The only thing surprising about that is that Valve didn't somehow try to come down on them for monetizing something so proximate to their own work without giving them a cut. I guess they figured they either didn't have a route to horn in on it, or thought it would drive Garrysmod uptake and generate revenue for them that way.
I guess it feels too familiar now. There's still sourcemods we never tried, like Resistance & Liberation, No More Room in Hell, Zombie Panic, Alien Swarm.
Replies: >>46231 >>46235
Speaking of Alien Swarm, you guys ever try the Reactive Drop fanmade expansion? Lot more missions, 8 player limit, etc. It would be nice to try for a gamenight, assuming everyone doesn't FF eachother to death immediately.

Didn't know that detail, worth a try
We need an EDF game with 16 player limit.
>Zombie Panic,
Zombie Panic happened once back on 8chan but it wasn't very popular. RnL could be fun but it can also turn into a slog depending on the map and how well fags can work together.
I forgot about that game but I do know Morrowind multiplayer would be pretty fun. It has a player limit of 64 players and also has PvP, and someone can host their own private server.

Just use wine. Anything that doesnt have a linux binaries in its Steam dedicated server package 91720 in this case is most likely not going to run on linux natively even if you can find the right SDK server files.
Wine, Xvfb and x11vnc is all you need you only need a lowres session, maybe even 8bit, combined overhead is negligable on even the cheapest trash VPS.
Now that I think about it, why does EYE even have a dedicated server package?

hostfag here, PSA to anyone who downloaded the GMod server packages: there is a chance they may be infected with something. my wangblows machine suddenly started having all sorts of weird shit installed on it and it's behaving incredibly fucky.

>start menu fucking up
>explorer crashing
>bullshit antivirus installs that belong to SYSTEM appearing in program files like AVG, Avira, Baidu, Panda, etc.
trying to run AV scans on it but making windows images on linux is a bitch. i could also be wrong and they came from something completely unrelated, but i'm warning you all to be on the safe side.
And this is why I only play game nights using buyfagged software or FOSS software. Fuck downloading your bootleg proprietary cracked binaries.

Neat ideas in Airborne but it's a shame they never expanded on them. Though I'd say 2005 is a stronger overall year.

As much as I dislike CoD 4 and the general consolisation/casualisation of the series 4 in and of itself isn't a terrible game. It's not great, but as a forgettable spectacle game it stands up to a single playthrough just a shame it arrived at such a perfect time to get blown way out of proportion and seriously harm the entire genre with its influence it also still manages to shit on the forever war in the Middle East compared to later games missing that element entirely. I'd also stick things like C&C3, Tomb Raider Anniversary and Stranglehold in that bucket of not being particularly notable but at least being something you can waste some free time on that's competently made and not trying to jew you with microtransactions constantly. I'm not sure ASSCREED really makes that cut outside of the potential it felt like it had and which obviously led nowhere.

The point is really that in any given year even up to 2007 or so you'd likely see at least 4-5 games that could comfortably sit in a favourites list or at least be worth something long term and then a large number of games falling into either decent or at least playable covering a whole bunch of genres. Nowadays you're lucky if you get one memorable game a year, what does come out that's worth even looking at is usually clustered in a handful of trendy genres and I often struggle to find enough new games to fill up my time thank fuck there's so many old games to try.

It's why I think nowadays are much better days for videogames, there's much more to play and enjoy than 2008-2015, it's not just AAAshit, Japanese middle sized game and indie shovelware.

You get actual middle sized companies making games and seeing success and non journo shilled/cliqueshit indie titles seeing it as well.

Dev's not wrong, a lot of shit is broken with Elite Force for PvP purposes like the nerfs done to flashbangs and the changes to cuffing due to equipment rebalances changing how weight in general and the addition of bulk. Plus everyone would just be running around with an AKM or 9mm Armalite in no armor like they're on crack.

That said, I think those gamemodes can be forced by the server host via hosting through commandline. I don't remember how that's done though, it had something to do with using a tool for the original game to make dedicated servers.

>It's why I think nowadays are much better days for videogames, there's much more to play and enjoy than 2008-2015, it's not just AAAshit, Japanese middle sized game and indie shovelware.
>You get stuff made by one dude selling like 1000000 copies because it's actually of quality, it's good shit.
The problem is finding it in the waves and waves of lazy indies. Pretty much these sorts of games are reliant on being picked up by some faggot e-celeb or niche genre forum circle-jerk e.g. RPGCodex or an opaque storefront/social media algorithms deciding to shill them and while that's undeniably better than having to dicksuck SJW journalists or die it's still broadly random chance. So yes it's an improvement over the joke most of the last decade was but it's still not great.

What we really need are more indie devs to turn an initial success with a small project into becoming a medium size/AA studio through gradually building up on the quality and ambition of their games like was done in the 90s and earlier. So far they've mostly just stayed down at the indie level releasing other games only at the same level of ambition as their first title. Now that gives something to play so it's not terrible but very more often than not it's just playing a fairly standard genre with a few interesting game mechanics and that's something I tire of in ~20 hours or so.

The GMod devs are now doubling down on blacklisting legitfag servers, delisting them from the server browser if they don't like it, which basically spell the death of 1942 and Mexican Border RP servers. They can also shut down your server anytime they want. This is coming from the game that would let you download a severed penis prop from it's old official website. All the more reason to use the cracked version instead.
>official gmod server list
Wouldn't the regular steam servers pick them up still? I doubt garry could have that much power.
Replies: >>47352
There's Steam games with dead master servers and nothing shows up in the server browser, so the game developer probably controls the master server.

reminder that garry also put RedShell in the game a few years ago for (((analytics))) purposes. There are guides to disable it by just corrupting the DLL and making it read-only. I forgot to do this on my client/server build so you might want to do it yourself.

That's all gmod servers and has been for years now. Also donation benefits to make it P2W. Once the price of renting an easymode control-panel run server dropped fair enough for kids to afford to run them and adding mods was simplified so far a retard could do it the game was doomed.

So it is mainly the retarded kids that run those servers which are too dumb to properly set up a server and getting the right mods to work without having to require other source games? Welp I guess I will play gmod only in solo modo or with other anons then. That would also explain why often I see a gmod video there is a lot of dumb kids speaking in mic.

>The problem is finding it in the waves and waves of lazy indies.
This was always an issue before the AAA dominance and over reliance in the 2010s.
The market was filled with shovelware, but thanks to that plenty of gems were made.

Except you're seeing that happen more and more, not just that, modders as well.

Not true at all, many are creating some different mixes
I don't know of many games like Factorio, Rimworld and Project Zomboid.

The big differences between now and then is that the more shilled games are trash now, while you would get some decent quality marketed stuff back then, and that good games which were mostly obscure or merely cult classics now have some clout due to the internet becoming mainstream so their legacy is well known.
Don't forget that mediocre shit being popular is nothing new

While we should absolutely look to the past for inspiration, learning and enjoying a better time when games were games made by a couple of enthusiast misfits, we should also look towards the future and support said still existing misfits.

There's actual gold now again unlike most of the 2010s

Not with indies it wasn't since digital distribution wasn't as widespread and the barrier to getting stuff out to where people could buy it was higher. It was more a case of lower-end publishers pushing stuff out.
>Except you're seeing that happen more and more, not just that, modders as well.
I can't think of any that have managed to follow through to an actual AA vidya studio. Maybe Streum On? I'm also thinking here about games like Reciever which have a neat idea and instead of moving on or incorporating it into a full on game the developer just slapped together another standard indie roguelite. Or whoever it was that made FTL which was fine but honestly not that amazing then followed it up with something very similar just with mechs instead.

>Not true at all, many are creating some different mixes
>I don't know of many games like Factorio, Rimworld
Both of those sit in a similar management game area and while Factorio is a little more unique Rimworld is a polished version of what was already trendy. Now I'm happy both exist as they're good remixes or refinements of existing genres and trends compared to shit like Prison Architect which was just badly designed but they're providing the same thing we've already got.
>Project Zomboid
Plenty of roguelites out there, though granted it was early enough that it probably counts more as one of the ones others have copied.
I'm not saying any of those three are bad games, just that they're in the genres that thousands of other indies are in both before they released and after they succeeded.

You can also look at how many multiplayer-only tactical shooters are coming out which are mostly just selling themselves as remakes of older games/mods.

>The big differences between now and then is that the more shilled games are trash now, while you would get some decent quality marketed stuff back then,
That is very true: AAA used to churn out decent or even great games fairly regularly while now it's a miracle if they scrape into playability.
>and that good games which were mostly obscure or merely cult classics now have some clout due to the internet becoming mainstream so their legacy is well known.
Some have crossed over, a lot still haven't. Much like with indies its down to the random chance of an e-celeb/online community/algorithm picking them up which is definitely better than no chance at all but isn't ideal.

>While we should absolutely look to the past for inspiration, learning and enjoying a better time when games were games made by a couple of enthusiast misfits, we should also look towards the future and support said still existing misfits.
>There's actual gold now again unlike most of the 2010s
Don't get me wrong it's defiantly an improvement but we need is to advance beyond the current indie heavy/random shilling chance market and into a situation with mature AA developers putting the effort into full games. Most indies, even the good ones, are not really reaching into the realm of greatness they just seem to because they come out against a background of shit. They're proving the base level of average/decent/good experiences but not the classics or truly ambitious games.
