Beat Your Backlog! Weekend Thread - June 25, 2022


Previous Threads

Welcome to the /r/pcgaming weekly Beat Your Backlog! thread. Are you like the rest of us and just have too many unplayed or barely played games in your library? If you answered yes then this the right place for you!

The rules are simple:

Provide us with the games from your back log and the community tells you what to play by commenting. Whichever game gets the most combined upvotes and comments is the game you play!

Once you're done with the game come to our community Discord and talk about it!

What this post isn't for:

  • Arguing about which games you think are better than the others.
  • Game suggestions to build your back log. That is the opposite of what we're doing here!

Good modding communities? Looking for games with lots of mods


I love modding games. Sometimes, I have more fun modding games rather than actually playing them (Skyrim). What are some good games with lots of mods or good modding communities? Here's some of the ones I can already think of.

GTA, Minecraft, Terraria, Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Stardew Valley, Cyberpunk, Elden Ring, Metal Gear Solid, Sims, Planet Zoo / Planet Coaster, Rimworld, Factorio, Etc.

Nvidia Shield doesn't recognize a 2nd USB game controller anymore


I've got tw 8bitdo SF30 pro controlers. When they are connected via bluetooth, i can play 2 players games as intended.

When those two controlers are USB plugged they are recognize as one and same controler, making 2 players games impossible to play.

Anyone could confirm that using twice the same controllers the second one is recognize as the first one ?

Thank you very much !

Ps: tested on Retroarch and Dolphin, but i guess it is the same for every application.

What are some futuristic shooters you could suggest?


Something between, say, Call of Duty 4 and Halo. Not quite modern era, not quite aliens and alien weaponry, something inbetween like a speculative military fiction with high-tech gadgetry, jetpacks, mechs, etc?

Some I enjoyed include Black Ops 2, Advanced Warfare, Infinite Warfare on the CoD side, as well the Crysis series, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, Titanfall 2, even something like Cyberpunk 2077 scratched that itch for me. I can't really think of any others off the top of my head, but this kind of level of military futurism. I'm looking mostly for campaign modes.

No budget, no spec constraints, although it would be lovely if it ran on the Steam Deck well.
