I flagged your post, not because of something you did wrong, but because I think Paizo officials should see it :-(

While they are in no other ways related to Might and Magic, the Sacred games (1&2) have prominent futuristic elements in an otherwise more or less traditional fantasy setting - also they are pretty good hack and slay rpgs - but similar (or more modern ES like games), sadly I know none.

All I can say for sure is that the old Might and Magic games canbe run on win 8.1 and win 10 - at least the GOG versions, I tried them all out (I-IX) today, just after reading the Harlequins post ;-) - so at least there is nothing there that inherently prevents them from running on a modern system - the bad news is that I had to do nothing by myself to make them run - so I can't help I'm Hiding in Your Closet out. That and that I am stuck playing World of Xeen for some time now...

If I recall correctly, Might & Magic VIII uses physx drivers. Try installing the physx legacy drivers or (if any) the physx drivers delivered with the game.

To be fair a lot of the problems with the new Trek movies are inherent to the various Trek series, old and new. But the TV show had the benefit of 20-24 hours of Trek a season, which meant that the really stupid/bad episodes were counteracted by a lot of really good ones.

Plus quite a few fans of Star Trek tend to confuse the whole franchise with a couple of great episodes that could probably all be seen in one day but took 5 tv-shows of various length to be created.

If you want to try to get it published, since you have mentioned looking for a magazine, remember that Golarion related stuff is likely off limits for you - as is stuff from possible published adventures your GM might use.

Name an old game that isn't available today that you would want to play.

I could list a number of them, largely older console games. A few PC ones come to mind as well. Skies of Arcadia, Snatcher, OGRE, etc.

You're completely missing the point though. Lots of the games on the release schedule for 2016 have been and look like they will be awesome. Lots have been horrible disappointments. Lots have been total garbage. This has always been the case, but to say that modern games are better without qualification means, for instance, that you're saying the rather mediocre Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness is better than Star Ocean: The Second Story.

Star Ocean Second Story, available new on PS4.

Skies of Arcadia I can agree with. That game was awesome and from what I can tell hasn't been re-released since the gamecube. Never heard of Snatcher or OGRE.

SKIES OF ARCADIA WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

STARFINDER, ARE YOU WATCHING THIS THREAD?!?!

I've heard of most of those; none of them grab me (and I've kind of had it up to HERE with "Skyrim this, Skyrim that" - I've seen footage, heard about "Fuss-Ro-Duh" or whatever, and it just doesn't seem interesting).

I'm certainly familiar with Civilization - never played it, not terribly interested, and attempts at similar games (Caesar II, for example) have taught me I have no idea what I'm doing.

Look at my list above. How many can you say you've heard of? I've inadvertently become the guy who's out of touch with most of the popular games, but is exceptionally familiar with all the obscure gems - with this new paradigm, even finding these gems is all but impossible.

I have heard of / played most of the games on your list (exept Neverhood and Obsidian). I admit it is hard to give you any advice. Looking for new games - the steam store is not a bad place to start - just ignore user reviews if you don't like armchair critics - and concentrate on the screenshots and the descriptions - oh and before chosing the Genre you are looking for, chose the 'type' game - so you won't have too sludge your way through the dlc and add ons for games you don't even know.

Games you might want to check out:
RPGs
Divinity 2 - Original Sin
Pillars of Eternity
Serpent in the Staglands
Might and Magic X
Shadowrun: Dragonfall
Legend of Grimrock 1+2

Diablo Style Games:
Torchlight II
Grim Dawn
Titan Quest (not that new, but pretty and dirt cheap if you wait for sales)

Other Games
Majesty 2 Collection

Sounds interesting enough - and if he manages to make a deeper and more complex game that is still as accessible as modern XCom - it will be amazing (if he fails close to that it will probably still be worth my time and money).

Sorry guys. I follow the thread regularly. I am a gay married man. And I suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder for going on 14 years now from a traumatic brain injury. (I should count myself lucky thats really all the aftereffects I got). Needless to say I am the mentally ill everyone is blaming. I have huge anxiety attacks that yes can make me aggressive, but no I have never hurt someone else while having them. Myself maybe but not someone else. Would I in the depths of my despair grab a gun and shoot a bunch of people who hate me? NEVER!!!! I may not like said people and they may eventually have part in my death by helping cause an anxiety attack that results in a heart attack or stroke. Have I had dark thoughts at my worst that I wish they would be harmed? I can admit that but I would never go through with it. The fact is most mentally ill people are much more likely to be victimized (as I have) or harm themselves. Now saying that I know my triggers and how to avoid getting more upset. I am not going to read anymore of the pro gun lobby explain this away, nor am I going to listen to people blame other marginalised groups and try and say it was anything but anti-LGBT hate. I am going to have to take a break for my own health. I wish you all the best. and I will look for charities to donate to help the Orlando families. (Don't pray as an atheist but I have to do something). I will be back to the thread after this has passed maybe in a few weeks....

It is a charity operation - parts (you can determine what part) of your payment goes to charity - basically some people make donations - sometimes a few hundred bucks - and get the bundle as a small compensation. I have seen average rate surpass the 'expensive rate' in previous bundles.

Not quite - the schools of magic are specializations, except for the 'universal school' that all wizards, regardless of their specialization study. Keeping divination spells in the 'universal school' can make sure (lets say when studying magic at some academy) that no wizard can ignore divination magic during his/her school days.

Welp, this thread sure is a lot of dudes talking about us, and congratulating themselves for being enlightened enough to have women in their groups, rather than to us. Or better yet, asking questions and listening.

I'm unclear as to why anyone would think that men's opinions on women in gaming groups are relevant or needed. You don't get to decide whether we belong here. Anything you have to say about women as a monolith--whether we make good GMs, whether we make good players, etc.--is ignorant and inaccurate as we're not a monolith. Any discussion of how to make gaming tables welcoming to women should be led by women. You shouldn't be trying to speak for us. So I'm not sure what purpose discussions talking about us as if we're some sort of exotic animals serves.

I mean, if you take gender out of it--"blue-eyed people in gaming groups--what do you all think?"--the absurdity starts to become apparent.

I hope that my 'advice' didn't offend anyone. Someone asked a question and I tried to give my perspective - I certainly did not wish to put that above womens perspective in this discussion, that would be quite ridiculous.

It's good to see that so many groups have a diverse player-base, following the numbers on this thread it seems that a lot of groups are 20-50% women. Of the groups I've GMed, mostly via Roll20, I've had one woman and one girl out of about 25 people total over the course of running 1 permanent/ongoing campaign, and 4 short/now-defunct campaigns; this comes to a bit under 10% women:men.

I wonder if this has generally been people's experience in online games, and if not, what suggestions people have for making a more girl/woman-friendly gaming environment.

I think it is important to remember that to most girls and women who game, being female comes completely natural. Don't make that the central point for wanting / having them in your group. You probably wouldn't even say to yourself "How great that Adam,, a man, is gaming with us" - in the same vein, don't make it about Eve, the woman.

She will probably have joined your group to game with you, not to be gawked at as some factotum, nor as a price to set apart your group from others. She is probably not there to flirt with you, to become your or your players girlfriend or token gal.

Treat her more or less like everyone else - try to find a gaming style that fits everybody in the group, not singling her out either way. Don't expect her do be an inherently different gamer just because of her gender.

As a GM: Don't single her character out for all the stuff you always wanted a female PC for - rape / love potions / magical pregnancy / NPCs 'she can't resist' etc 'just because' - don't do it. As a player: don't creep on her character just because your character is the strongest, most charismatic or best endowed guy there is.

In other words: it helps if neither the players nor the characters act as disrespectful mysogynists.
