What are some games that someone could easily get over 200 hours of gameplay from that you would recommend?

Civilization, whether it be 4 or 5. (Maybe 6 when it has more mods to it)

If you're prepared to spend days on end defending your crap with your buddies i'd suggest Rust.

Sadly all my friends are faggots that'll buy the latest fps craze, put a week or two into it, and they'll never play it again. I still can't believe they paid $150+ bucks so they could get into the Escape from Tarkov beta, just to drop it after a week or two of playing it.

The Elder Scrolls series but then again you probably know that already since Skyrim got the normies into it and everyone and their mom knows about the series now.

It's an isometric gathering/survival game with a unique and charming art style and sound design, but I got bored of it after 70 hours myself.

This, it needs way more mods and the core gamplay isn't very well developed for mid and late game.

It's an absolutely amazing game with the right mods though. For civilization 4, my favorite mods are Rhyse and Fall (with the Dawn of Civilization mod to that) and Realism Invictus

War thunder, you play for 2 hours just to unlock a vehicle then spend another 5 just getting enough money to buy it (only applies if you are after rank 2)and when you do its no good till you ace it and their is almost 200 vehicles for each country and 5 countries

I feel like civ 6 needs a lot more time to flesh out its mid and late game mechanics. 5 did this with DLC which I am not so happy to buy, but it made a worlds of difference for the game. I think 6 has a lot of potential but till the late game gets good I'm sticking with 5 and my mods. Strats are still my favorite gaming type and the Civ series is probably my second favorite.

Only if you are learning to learn a bit of shit though.
Plenty of mods, plenty of video tutorials, and plenty of fun.

Europa Universalis 4. I have over 1,100 hours and each new game is still unique and interesting. They also actively release patches for the game, and the DLCs, although expensive, actually massively overhaul the game and make it fun to come back to.

Aside from it being an objectively good game, it is also a /pol/-tier game.

Assassin's Creed games really compel players to go for completion. I've played Brotherhood, Black Flag, and Syndicate, and all have been well worth the time and money.

>2 months after the fact.
Still posting this anyway

any Total war (with mods triple that), Civilization, Fallout (any+mods), Xcom, Stellaris, ARMA, Men of War Assault squad 2 (if you have the original assault squad don't upgrade to 2), Mount and Blade, Age of Empires II, Hearts Of Iron III/IV, Borderlands if you like to grind, Portal 2 (custom puzzles), Dawn of war I (any expansion), left for dead, left for dead 2, and any of The Sims if you are into that.

I recently just passed 100 hours in Persona 5 and from what I hear the others are all about that length as well. I'm liking it so far (though the story's "BIG TWIST" is a bit stupid)
I'd still recommend it if you're fine with more story based games. What gameplay there is is quite fun as well.

I disagree entirely anon, only the first in the series was worthwhile because it was the only one centered around assassination. The sequels mostly just added fluff and flash that takes away from the core game, the pirate one was okay though

Maybe Dwarf Fortress? There is even nice Fallout Equestria mod for it (http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=172157.0). It's easily moddable, also the lack of graphics isn't that big problem, one can just turn the imagination on and explore majestic underground strongholds, cave systems, wild plains etc. It's quite detailed, the only problem that I saw with this game is the constantly decreasing performance. Its creator focuses on adding new things instead on working towards increasing its FPS, he doesn't have adding multithreading in his plans. But well, you can try it, it's free

And the multiplayer science-fiction version, Space Station 13. Only downside is I don't know of a pony mod for it.

Silent Hunter 3 is a good game. It still has some quirks though, and I don't feel they ever managed to make it just right in any of the versions. But SH III is perhaps the best to this day.
I am no good at the game, but I just need to play it more.

I agree that it's a great game. To make the installation easier it's better to use a wrapper, though (http://aurora2.pentarch.org/index.php?topic=5663.0). Also, soon it will be rewritten with C#, so many bugs and slowness of calculations will be removed.

You a NEET? Go outside, lol.

I'll assume this is all offline? Mount and Blade is decent. Civilization is good. My Summer Car is good, if you really have nothing better to do. Spore. RimWorld. Silent Hunter III is alright, kudos to you faggots for even knowing that one. I spent a ton of time on that, but it's been years, so I wouldn't even know where to get the mods anymore. How big of a nerd are you? Falcon 4 AF/BMS can keep you busy forever if you like airplanes and stuff. BMS is better, but I hear they got shut down recently.

fallout 2
the amount of ways you can play it makes you want to keep replaying it and if you want to you can cheese it and easily get the best stuff in the game if you don't like early game combat
but i would say you should play fallout 1 before because the story is great and it's a hell of a lot easier

SH5 is better just by graphics alone. plus the fact it puts you in the first person view gives a level of immersion that I cannot express.

STORYTIME: after a very successful operation raiding the British east coast. christmas was approaching and I wanted my crew to celebrate. but I was already near scapa flow military port that is always teeming with battleships. We spend christmas decimating the british fleet and I decide that on the way home. on January 1st I bring the sub to 80m depth (very deep) and spend the rest of the night letting the lads relax for once.

another time. I had the mission of sinking a carrier in the Atlantic entrance to the English Channel. After a long time of searching for the carrier, I had finally had enough and decided to search for the carrier some other time. at least I can sink something on my way through the channel. see a big fleet in the channel moving west. nice ships you got there, shame if anything where to happen to them. I set up an ambush for the fleet. peep out of the water with my periscope, It's the fucking carrier! everyone to battle stations. I get right in position and send a massive salvo against it. never stood a chance and sank. I snuck away like I usually did. It's stuff like that that makes you love the roleplaying aspect to the game.
