Welcome to /v/'s Recommended Games Wiki
now stop asking us what game you should play next

The new Wikia look is really shitty, so log in, click 'my preferences' at the top, scroll down to 'Site Layouts' and change it back to 'Monobook'. Now in delicious Burichan flavor.

We've been playing videogames longer than you have... but now that you're one of us, we've been playing videogames for even longer than before. Find out what the hivemind(mindmind) thinks are good games.

You see a game on one of these lists that you've played? Think the summary could be beefed up a bit? Or is it sad and alone without any summary at all? Well, then add one in!

Thanks to emulators and eBay, you can still play videogames that are even older than some of us have been alive.
