What would stage Green and Tier 2 video games look like?

67 posts in this topic

What an interesting coincidence...... Leos blog ... and a thread now.

I was compiling a list of games that deal with spirituality, consciousness and such in the last couple of days.... Planed to make a new thread, but it will fit here perfectly.. ha... Looks like mostly stage green or above:

So lets begin.

SOMA:  A FP, sci-fi horror.

Its main theme is consciousness, to be exact, copying consciousness. Its such an awe inspiring game...I don't want to spoil it too much.

Spoiler: In the game there is a sub-theme of the WAU (Warden Unit), its an AI system that is programed to preserve humanity. There has been an apocalyptic event and the planet is not suitable for human life, the WAU experiments for creating a new host for the human by uploading their consciousness into a machine, creating cyborgs, human-sea-life genetic blends...ect.

Observer: A cyberpunk FP psychological horror.

It deals with the theme of consciousness. You are an Observer, a detective that can plug into other peoples minds in order to investigate. It includes mind melds, loosing yourself into other peoples minds, losing your own mind. Augmentations, uploading consciousness to a server...ect....Its a masterpiece.

Torment: Tides of Numinera - A CRPG, more of a ...a game-book.

Deals with all sorts of themes like spirituality, philosophy, consciousness, the mind, trans-dimensional stuff, existence, identity, choice...... the world and the characters of the game are sooo.....deep,diverse and interesting. The writing is bombastic.

You are a castoff of the changing god. He changes bodies like socks, when he leaves a body, a new consciousness is born in it, the castoff. There is a deep mystery hunting you.... and the changing god..... The Sorrow.

Your minds awakes in darkness, aching cold sets into an unfamiliar body.... and so life begins.

Layers of Fear: A FP psychological horror

You are a mad-schizophrenic artist, you return to your old house after a long time to finish a painting.

The Void: FP mystery.

I haven't played this one yet... Its on my list.
In the game you are dead and in between worlds, you are working to save your soul,by..... harvesting color... Quite weird Russian game.
 

Transference: FP psychological mystery/horror

Troubled scientist in a corrupted digital VR simulation. It has real, movie like footages in it.

Call of Cthulhu: 

Haven played this one yet... but I am quite eager. Lovecraftian art/media is always based around the theme of existence and consciousness, painted with the brush of human smallness and insignificance. The gigantic forces beyond the veil,  piercing the veil....indifferent to man.... like man is to ants.

The Sinking City: Another HP Lovecraft game. Came out this year. Its on my list too.

 

 

Psychedelic games:

Couple of Amanita Design games.
 

Samorost 3: Point and click adventure.

Its set in a surreal cute world, there is a backstory and hell of a lot of psychedelic puzzles...haha..don't expect the puzzles we are used to.

Just play this!... its a 6 hour game, you will never regret it. Amanita games are a drug themselves.


Machniarium: Point and click adventure

Botanicula: Point and click adventure

Chuchel: Point and click adventure

Creaks: Point and click adventure

 

 

Adventure games involving the paranormal in a unique way:

Fran Bow:

 

Little Misfortune:

 


Some extra games worth checking out:

Osmos:

Little Nightmares:

Everything:

I think Crusader Kings 2 and other grand strategy games from Paradox Interactive are stage yellow. They delve into history, mechanics of society, and politics of the time in a very fun way.

Other strategy games like Age of empires series, Total war and Civilization have large aspects of yellow in them. They are by far my favourite games, I cannot play any other games than strategy. It’s like education but fun.

@Girzo 

Seconding The Witness, an amazing experience that's all about perspective and perception.

I feel like Baba is You has some tier 2 to it aswell. While it's technically based in strict orange logic, there is a whimsical non materialism to it. At the  very least it's green with strongly integrated orange.

The Witness is a logical puzzle game with a lot of references to mysticism, including Rupert Spira talks.

I would place it around Yellow.

These are as red as can be :D The goal of Total War games is pretty much utter domination and constant warmongering. There is a bit of Blue once you can get your cities under control but we all know that the fun part is riding down the barbarian hordes (#unleashyourinnerred)

They teach you about history and how society worked in great detail. 

Like all video games they have some red. Other titles besides total war don’t give you much room for red. Even in total war the graphic violence most video games have is way less. In ck2 and civ there almost none.

These are not the games to play if you like stage red adrenaline rush. Donald Trump wouldn’t appreciate these games.
