Game Suggestions Megathread /r/Steam Bi-Weekly Game Suggestion Thread.

11 Upvotes

Welcome to the Bi-Weekly Game Suggestion Thread!

Do you not know what to play?

You found a niche game that everyone should try? Can't find the perfect zombie survival animal simulator game? Well this is the thread for you. This is going to be a weekly thread containing questions about what should I play and suggestions for new games to play. After the first week we will include charts with the most upvoted responses and such each week.

Now to make this work the best and not just be spammed with "What should I play?", please be as in depth in what type of game you want to play and what you are looking for. There are too many games to be able to properly suggest something with no background information.

If you want to discuss things relating to this thread but that aren't suggestion or suggestion questions then please check the stickied META comment and reply to it.

Question I want to play Terraria on LAN with my 7yo Son. How can I do this?

4 Upvotes

I have several computers in my house that are more than capable of running terraria, and my 7yo son has taken an interest in playing with me! Happy dad noises!

So my question is — how do I make this work? I’m familiar with setting up a server for play over the internet and port forwarding, but that’s with only one copy of the game running from my household, and my friends connecting externally through IP address.

Is there a way I can use my copy of terraria on two different computers over LAN, or do I have to set up another steam account, buy another copy, etc etc?

Any help is appreciated!

I do not want to pirate terraria or acquire a copy of it by any nefarious or alternative means. Legal/Legit suggestions only, please!

Error / Bug In Game Sounds Stop Working

2 Upvotes

Please help. In game sounds stop working. I uninstalled the game I was playing first, but then I tried to play another steam game and realized the issue is coming from steam and not me (i think). Skyrim played its intro "hruh" sound, and then didn't make another. Undertale started playing its intro music, but cut off. I'm going to uninstall and reinstall steam, but if that doesn't fix the sound from cutting, I don't know what to do.
