My Favourites

This is the list of my favourite games. I keep this list updated as I play more games. Click on a game to read my review of it (not all of them have reviews).

I rate games purely based on how much I enjoy them - not how much I expect others will enjoy them. I look for games which are enjoyable, innovative and memorable.

Score is out of 16, and is an overall rating about how much I enjoy the game, ignoring any technical issues. Tech Score measures performance issues and bugs, down to -8

Cool Stuff

Here's some (potentially cool) stuff I have made when playing games.

Here's a very short version. Interested? You know which button to click!

Satisfactory

The first section is for my Satisfactory world. These are all taken from my second world, which I have about 300 hours in.

a picture of the storage area a picture of a sign a picture of suburban housing a picture of the desert city, viewed from the skyscraper a picture of a roundabout a picture of lots of truck stations a picture of the inside of a tube station a picture of a mysterious area a picture of the rcu factory from the aluminium factory a picture of the aluminium factory a picture of some train stations with an interesting roof a picture of some central train stations a picture of the rocky desert a picture of the desert city in sunset a picture of the hub area after dark a picture of the crystal oscillator factory the intercity transport map the desert city transport map (outdated) a paper diagram used to plan a factory making fused modular frames a paper diagram used to plan a factory making uranium fuel rods

Minecraft

I've also played a lot of Minecraft, beginning with MCPE. I've mostly played on 1.7.10 modded worlds, but have also made cool things in vanilla. Unfortunately, I haven't managed to obtain screenshots for the vast majority of my worlds, particularly modded ones.

a picture of a go-kart track in minecraft an image of a max size reactor a picture of a house with the floor made up of xp a picture of a tube station in vanilla minecraft a picture taken while travelling along a minecart track on an automated railway system a picture of a car in minecraft a picture of the outside of the chat quiz map, consisting of lots of messy command blocks a picture of the outside of an undergound base, with lots of cables and mess a picture of the interior of a house a picture of one of my first houses, in pocket edition a map of the tube network I made in vanilla minecraft

Terraria

I originally started playing Terraria on mobile and have since spent a long time playing. I particularly like large chest rooms and efficient transport networks. Here's some screenshots from some of my worlds:

an image of my base in terraria, focused on the chest room an image of a teleporter in the teleporter transport network a picture of an arena filled with heart statues a picture of a very bright house filled with lots of torches, on old terraria mobile a screenshot of a map in terraria that looks very messy
