I’m surprised it didn’t suggest ST:Secret of Vulcan Fury or That Which Sleeps.
I put in Control and it basically just spit out an unrelated list of AAA games.
Stuff I tried
→ Not there.
→ Not there.
D&D Stronghold Simulator
→ Majesty series pops up. Solid recommendation. Some of the others are interesting.
Forgotten Realms The Archive Collection 2
→ Solid recommendations here too, and all the related games.
Legend of Mana
Collection of Saga Final Fantasy Legend
Lovers of Aether
→ Perfect recommendations lol.
→ Also pretty close to perfect.
I Love You Colonel Sanders
→ Kinda okay recommendations.
→ New food for the wishlist.
One Night Hot Springs
→ A whole bunch of interesting stuff I’ve never heard of and downloading now.
I like this site, and love that it shows what games are on sale right now. Useful tool thanks @KR777
I have favourited this. Results vary, but gosh, I find it far far ahead of Steam for relevant recommendations. If there is anything else that even comes close - for games - I am ignorant of it.
I’m pretty sure @KR777 knows of these already but I’ll just post them here in case anyone else wants to take a look.
I like Mythic Map but prefer the control offered by https://steampeek.hu which allows you to add in exclusion tags, filter out unreleased games and narrow the results by date. There’s a ‘Similarity’ slider too but I’ve no idea what that really does.
There’s also https://www.gamedatacrunch.com/ which is really powerful but not as intuitive (and seems to be running very slow right now).
Wow, what a great find! Much better than anything else I’ve tried. I don’t know what the algorithm takes into consideration but it somehow manages to connect games that I love, despite them not being in the same genre. For instance, I asked for Space Rangers and it gave me, among other things, Commandos, Majesty HD. I bought Imperium Galactica II, will probably pick up Star Valor soon (I had read about in the space games thread a while back but I forgot about it). Oh and Knights and Merchants, which slipped under my radar back in the day!
This did really work :)
I’ve enjoyed a handful of things I found with it so far.
One I never would’ve came across was DoraKone. It’s a free visual novel that came out five years ago and still feature-limited. Really sweet, not pervy. And a free Sokoban-Dancer I was surprised I haven’t heard of (100k positive reviews), Helltaker.
This topic just earned its keep. Thanks to steampeek.hu, I now have this on my wishlist.
Found it by searching on Just Cause 2.
