Subject title: Who plays PC Games? Which Games?

Do you guys play PC Games from time to time?

If so, which Games?
Anything Art/Inspiration-related?

Can you recommend really cool Games,
that are not so mainstream, that everybody has played them anyways
(like Witcher for example, even if it can be quite inspirational :) ) ?

Listen closely, I'm talking about facts here ;)

The best game for any artist to play is Dark Souls. After a couple of hours with that rascal of a game you'll wish that you'd be drawing right now and not playing this godforsaken work of the devil.
That way, I'm always able to get a lot of practice in...
It looks pretty nice, too.

I watched Dark Souls 1 as a LetsPlay of somebody on Youtube. I found it to have a really nice atmosphere, although I dislike the telling of the story through item descriptions a bit.
All in all i found it cool.

Then I decided to play Part 2 myself (I tried to make a LetsPlay, but I am not entertaining :D) because 1 was cool, but in Part 2 I was disappointed. Somehow it seems kind of uninteresting to me. I beat 2 of 4 of the big bosses, but I have no incentive to continue somehow. There is no story and nothing.

Do you know Part 3? I think it was a big hit like Witcher, wasnt it? Is it better than Part 2?

I think if you're looking for artistic inspiration, indie games are probably the best because they tend to be more focused on artistry since hiring a bunch of modelers, texture guys, lighters, fx guys, and rigors on top of everything else games need isn't cheap. Things like Ori and the Blind Forest, Cuphead, Limbo, etc.

Honest to God, I was going to recommend Cuphead too. Give it a go. The game is amazing. It's all hand-drawn and animated. On top of that, it's fun as well. You'll appreciate it.

I like old school RPG's with good writing and a lot of exploration such as Baldur's Gate, Fallout, Planescape:Torment...
Not great visuals by nowadays standards but I love them.
I have social anxiety
