WP PC Game Testing Mega Thread

Post by WheatPasta » Wed Dec 05, 2018 1:43 pm

The ultimate throw it to the wall and see if it sticks guide.

General
I wanted to start a new thread, and get started early on a 2019 new years resolution of mine. What is that you ask? Playing more games of course!

What is the plan?
I am going to make an attempt to play test as many games in my Steam library as possible. I will aim to get about 15 or so minutes in to check frame rate and play-ability

What are the tools?
I was at first using FRAPS. Then I realized that Steam has a built in FPS counter that you can enable in the settings menu. I have both running as FRAPS is easier to see at a glance, but it does not work for every game tested.

After some initial testing it seems like Steam Big Picture mode may be using a few resources. Thus for the sake of getting as much as I can out of the Replay I will be using the regular Steam client to launch games. It also seems that having more then one game client active in the System Tray will eat up a few as well. So I make sure that GOG Galaxy is closed before I test Steam games.

I will be using my Logitech K400 Plus to navigate and play for the time being. You can look at the Steam store page for the game in question, or you can Launch Big Picture Mode to filter games you own with Controller support. All games tested will be locally installed. I would recommend getting the HDD Bay off Amazon here for some extra space.

This will be a little bit of a daunting task as I have over 1,500 Steam games. I have a bad habit of buying cheap Humble and Fanatical bundles. This is of course on top of Steam sales for games I am interested in, and not to mention the voice inside that goes it's only $1 for X game. It does not look too bad. What have you got to lose?
Some games that look like they will obviously not run on the Replay I will skip, but I will try to test as many as I can. I will be turning down the settings as low as I can if possible to get the best frame rate I can.

What is the motivation?
My hope is two fold. First that this list gives gamers new games to try on their Replay, and second that playing PC games in general might spark them on a journey to dig deeper in to PC gaming in general. Perhaps even buy or build better hardware to experience games that the Replay can not handle.

Games I recommend that should run okay on the Replay I will try to remember to mark with *
I would like to keep this locked for now. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions regarding PC gaming or this list feel free to PM me here or on Discord. Always happy to help in one way or another.
You can search this list in your browser by pressing CTRL+F , and then typing in the Find box.
If you are having a software problem be it front end, Windows, or want to try RetroArch and LauchBox but need help feel free to contact me. Post on the forum, PM here, or on Discord. I will be more then happy to do my best to get you sorted.
