That first one looks cool. I saw something about 4-hour turns. That could work well for us timezone-distributed users. I assume you can customize it and make it longer or shorter.

Well I honestly don't know if you can actually get a server for this but, I'd like to try Divinity 2 multiplayer. Its capped at 4 people though, but I've never tried any of those kinds of rpg games that had a multiplayer functionality with other people. Things like Neverwinter Nights 2, The Icewind Dale series, Baldur's Gate series. That kind of thing.

D:OS2 would be kinda nice, but as you said, it has a 4 player cap, and that's just way too low for clan activities. I honestly don't know what Larian was thinking there. Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition would be much better for that sort of thing due to being able to handle an ABSURD amount of players. And that's before any kind of server linking. The only issue with NWN is that, at the moment, the ruleset is firmly hardcoded in, so there's no mods available for changing that at all.

Wait, online Skyrim is a thing? Like have you actually checked? Because the last time I looked into it none of the options seemed to actually work.

Mostly sure, however it's looking like we're not gonna be picking that one anyway.

My final say is that we don't really need your separate paid server to host. The rest of us can host whatever game we want to play, when we want to play it, and you can join that.

I don't think we're going to have an easy time even agreeing on a game though.

And how often have you guys hosted your own games? Monkee here is literally the only the one that stepped up in at least a year. I've also had to produce most all of the content on this site. And I'm not saying that to pat myself on the back, or to say, "poor me", but simply that I seem to have the final say because nothing here ever seems to go anywhere (at all) if I'm not behind it.

We already got JKA, I think a Gmod server would be nice too I'd include TF2 also but not many people here play it

Then I'll be voting for;
Phantasy Star Online
Windward
Minecraft
PSO has too many MMO mechanics.
Windward seems a little too simple/grindy, and the replay value is low

Sorry if it seems like I'm picking on you. I'm not. If it makes you feel any better, I had to shut myself down too on some occasions.

TF2 and GMod are great server based games, and they are actually accessible to me so they have my vote. Poll is up, for those that haven’t noticed.

I vote Far cry 5... and it's on sale right now... and no need to pay for a hosted server... we could just meet up and have private matches (PAssword Only)
