  1. OK. Time to start talking about Factorio. Started due to this thread I began in an effort to find other base building games. But turns out that Factorio may be the best there is. Not much time right now for a huge intro as I'm at work and I should ... well ... do some work. Quick synopsis: You're stranded on a strange planet (How'd you get there? I have no idea.). You have to start from almost nothing to eventually build a rocket to leave said planet. As soon as your rocket launches, you win. Most people don't really seem to bother with the endgame though; rather, they strive for other self-made in-game goals. Only impediment is the 'aliens' who are actually the planet's residents, as you are the true alien. Main game page is at https://www.factorio.com/. Also available on Steam at http://store.steampowered.com/app/427520/ See the forums at https://forums.factorio.com/. Pros: $20. That's it. For now anyway. With the next version due in a couple of months (I think) they will be out of Early Access and the one-time cost may go up. No in-game purchases. $20 buys you a lifetime of wasted hours. Great general gameplay. This is a true base building adventure. You begin with almost nothing and have to generate stuff to generate other stuff to research stuff to generate even more stuff. Sweet graphics. Not super hi-res but enough detail to see the machines at work when you zoom in. And this will easily work on low-end PCs. Makes you think, I mean really, really think. The community is the best I have ever seen. I have yet to ever see anyone rage at anyone else, either players or the devs, in the forums, on Reddit, anywhere. It's actually people helping people. The devs listen to the community. Every patch includes not only a bit more content, much of it requested, but also tons of bug fixes as noted by the players. Tons upon tons of mods available, generated by the community. Installation takes about 5 seconds each. Seriously. Extremely configurable, either vanilla or with any number of mods. I love this quote from a Steam review: "Factorio is a super duper awesome game where we use conveyor belts to shoot aliens." Cons: Ain't much. For me, the endgame as I said is a bit anti-climactic. Build the rocket and leave. So go for something else. Oil production setup is a pain, but after you get used to it, it gets a bit better. Unfortunately this is the latter 2/3rds of the game. Bottom line: Watch some YT videos (there are thousands) to get an idea of how to start the game, drop the $20, install, and then kiss your life goodbye.
