Fun podcast and fun comments from us peanuts/dirtbags in the gallery.
Lesmocon Let It Die is hateful trash and the only reason more people don’t say that is because it’s very good at pretending it’s not hateful trash for the few five hours.
I really really really wanted to like Let it Die, but I don’t think I “got” the game loop despite pounding at it for a few months. I agree with @exodus’ comments about how the levels seemed all the same, and I certainly wasn’t sure that I was ever progressing. I did get killed by and kill a few of Tim’s characters though.

If you haven’t played HOTS, it’s the fun MOBA. Blizzard sanded off all the MOBA trash like last hitting and letting movement bugs be defining execution features of mid-level play. I’ve been playing it with a small group of friends on Sunday nights for 1-4 games (depending on our schedules) for 4+ years now and it’s still fun, I still feel like I’m learning and improving.

Capcom vs. SNK 2
exodus Street Fighter Alpha 2 Gold (or any version of alpha 2)
SFII has been obsoleted by better versions. I love Third Strike, but you kind of need to be a fighting game nerd to play it at medium level. If I’m going to play a Street Fighter game vs someone, who may not be as into the genre as I am, or has fondness for SFII-era games I think that Alpha 2 is actually the better one to play. It feels more modern, it’s better looking (IMO) and it still has tons of familiar faces. Alpha 3 suffers from early CvS2 syndrome (again, both games I love). As a new player, you are asked to make too many decisions you don’t understand before you get to hear “Round One: Fight!”. In CvS2, you have to choose your groove (6 choices), choose between 1-4 characters of a 35+ character roster, then assign 4 points worth of ratio to that group of characters.

HIPS aka “Turing Test: The Game” is amazing and instantly understood by anyone watching it. I’ve had lots of fun at parties at my house with big and small groups with this one.
