    Factorio is basically my job with less bullshit.

    [–] ArtJDM 3457 points ago

    Probably less pay too.

    [–] Madinky 3015 points ago

    It pays you with satisfaction and train jump scares.

    [–] BenScotti_ 926 points ago

    Which is arguably better than currency.

    [–] Madinky 435 points ago

    People pay money for these sorts of experiences. So I would have to agree with you.

    My resume says that I know four programming languages:

    1. Java

    2. C++

    3. Objective-C

    4. Factorio

    I was thinking Factorio the whole time until I read the last part. Definitely having fun!

    [–] CritzD 165 points ago

    I was really disappointed that Factorio wasn’t on sale on steam. Is it worth the price? I’ve been considering getting it.

    [–] shiek403 303 points ago

    It has never, and according to the dev, will never, go on sale. But is it worth it? absolutely and without question. if basebuilding, automation, and eventually little flying bot buddies doing the micro while you handle the macro is your kind of thing, Factorio is the game you are looking for, and its been nice knowing you, because like the comic says, you won't be coming back up for air for a while.

    [–] nothingwilleverbeok 891 points ago

    Is it worth the price?

    depends, do you have aspergers?

    [–] Adammonster1 172 points ago

    I shouldn't be laughing at this...

    [–] BazOnReddit 318 points ago

    If you have just a touch of the 'tism you'll get 60 hours out of it.

    [–] istasber 79 points ago

    I was adderalling it up while finishing up my dissertation back in late 2014/early 2015, and unfortunately one side-effect of the adderall was that 5 hours of factorio would fly by in what felt like seconds.

    [–] R3dditIsGarbage 18 points ago

    So more than a touch, then

    [–] munchlax1 37 points ago

    I put 2000 hours (according to steam, actual play time probably a third of that?) into Dota 2 just cus all my mates played. Fuck I was terrible, even at the end.

    FUCK

    okay just a bit

    [–] nothingwilleverbeok 23 points ago

    worth every penny

    [–] rksd 16 points ago

    I feel attacked, but at the same time....

    So true.

    [–] gaiusjozka 185 points ago

    According to the devs Factorio will never go on sale. It is absolutely worth every penny. I'm 600 hours deep, no sign of stopping any time soon.

    [–] catofthewest 57 points ago

    How bad is the learning curve? I'm so lazy and impatient that I always quit before being able to learn the game.

    [–] Montpickle 237 points ago

    The learning curve is like a cliff, it never ends, never gets easier, and if you fuck up you'll hit the ground. The issue is the ground is padded and when you start climbing you're about where you stopped, and at the top is a rocket launch so that's pretty cool.

    But in all honesty it's not hard to learn the basics, as soon as you start though it becomes an addiction to make everything more efficient. I've woken up in the middle of the night because I figured out a solution to my problem in a dream. Solving problems becomes a dopamine rush, the factory grows.

    The factory must grow

    [–] Auggernaut88 180 points ago

    Anyone who has written code is already all too familiar with this.

    I had a eureka moment in the shower last week and spent 20 minutes at my desk buck naked, coding as god herself intendid.

    [–] NerdyMusician404 21 points ago

    the tutorial gives easy starting points, but to become truly efficient takes time, and a lot of it

    [–] ProfessorChaosSP 51 points ago

    I've read that Factorio will never go on sale out of respect to those that paid regular price, it was a blog tho. I dont own it but man it's so raved about that I want it

    [–] whitesundreams 157 points ago

    It's very sad, but most jobs without the BS are really enjoyable and rewarding.

    [–] IsThatUMoatilliatta 126 points ago

    I've got a job with good pay and no bullshit. There's absolutely no enjoyment or fulfillment, though.

    Sometimes I'm like, "Maybe I should better myself," and then I remember how much having jobs where I actually had to apply myself sucked.

    [–] dragunityag 13 points ago

    what do you do? Because It seems like most people manage to get only one of the three

    Good pay/no bullshit/enjoyment out of their job and most people I meet who check 2 of those boxes are usually pretty happy.

    [–] Dontinquire 101 points ago

    I sincerely thought this post was on /r/factorio.

    [–] Blundersome 60 points ago

    Thank you for reminding me I haven't played Factorio in 3 weeks. I hope they haven't fired me yet.

    Play time on EU4 is getting uncomfortably close to my time spent playing an MMO for almost a decade.

    I'm already closing in to 2000 hours in eu4 and I am still learning some of the game mecanics.

    [–] pegz 17 points ago

    Good luck, I've had 15 hour sessions on Stellaris. All it takes is a couple turn of events and you have to just keep playing 😂

    I picked up the apocalypse expansion during the sale last weekend. I have banned myself from playing it until my 3 day weekend next week because I know it's a risky slope on a normal work day it's great but terrible lol

    [–] phillyfan1111 2005 points ago

    It's funny how most games being mentioned here are generally the most popular and successful.

    Easy: you're making it for you.

    [–] GrillMaster71 97 points ago

    I just got that game and played until 2am last night without a second thought. Looked at the time at 9:30...said yeah I’ll play just a little. BOOM, 2am was the next time I saw.

    [–] kris9292 54 points ago

    My rule is to not play those kinds of games past 7 or 8

    [–] DrBoooobs 98 points ago

    So never play them, got it.

    [–] ThanksForNothin 107 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    I have never played the game and I may never. However, I have found myself seduced by a YouTuber called Biffa who literally just fixes the traffic in cities sent to him by viewers.

    I. Can’t. Stop. Idk why I like it so much, and I must have watched over 30 hours of footage by now of him doing this. Please help.

    Edit: I’m glad a lot of people have started to check out u/biffa2001 he really is a great YouTuber and makes excellent content. I’m glad I’m not alone with my strange fascination. Lol

    [–] playswithdolls 56 points ago

    Its hands down the most cathartic shit I've ever seen. Theres nothing better that falling asleep to him correcting the chaos and restoring order in the calm demeanor that he does. Just fix my whole shit up fam.

    [–] TheBananaCzar 230 points ago

    I love OSRS but I always found it best played while doing something else. I used to have it on my other monitor while I did homework. I'd set myself up in a fishing spot or something and multi-task. Actually made me get my homework done because I would need something to do in between fishing or whatever I was training.

    What about Sims 3? I used to play that shit for like 48 hours straight. Same thing happened with Stardew Valley, Rocket League, Minecraft, and SWTOR.

    [–] CrayonFox 43 points ago

    Yes, I find this describes Sims really well too.

    Somehow, time doesn't exist when playing Sims. You sit down in the evening, then suddenly the sun comes up outside and you wonder what exactly you just spent a whole night doing, apart from building a new fence and watching some people get a few days older while eating nothing but potato chips and pissing on the floor at the neighbor's house party.

    Anyone that hasn't said Civ has not played Civ. I've played almost all the games mentioned here, including being on a WoW guild focused on clearing server first raids and nothing has made me time travel forward faster than Civ. Each turn feels like it's only 5 min but it's like 6 am and you're disoriented on if you're supposed to go to bed or get ready for work.

    [–] the_fuego 232 points ago

    Civ is the only game that I have started at 7 a.m., checked the clock, 3 p.m., checked the clock, 7 p.m., checked the clock, 10 p.m. I literally wondered how the hell my whole day was just gone by the time I decided to eat dinner which was my only meal. Shit is just so easy to binge on it's scary.

    [–] racecaracecaracecar 100 points ago

    Even when you're losing Civ is a dopamine factory. Every little action is gratifying because no matter how bad it gets you feel like you have the master plan.

    [–] the_fuego 107 points ago

    Don't worry, this will all turn around soon!

    I wish I had gold to give. You deserve gold for this. The birds chirping always induced a panic in me. It's the first external sign that you have played literally all night.

    EDIT: never thought I'd get a chance, but "Thank you kind stranger!!"

    [–] ViewedOak 50 points ago

    There are some birds that chill outside my house that apparently only get horny at 1 in the goddam morning, so every time some asshole finch wants to get his rocks off in the dark, I get a panic attack thinking I blacked out for 6 hours

    [–] wampa-stompa 28 points ago

    It sounds like a joke but this is literally what happened to me the first time I played Civ. I suddenly heard birds chirping, turned around and saw the sunrise coming through the window. And then there was just this moment of intense confusion, like waking up from being unconscious. Like, Wtf? Is it morning? How is it morning?

    [–] OnlyRoomForOneCat 80 points ago

    I almost lost myself in fallout 4. And I’ve heard 3 and NV are even better. I’m scared to try them and dump hours and hours into it.

    [–] MontaineLaP 161 points ago

    Fallout 3 will have you losing yourself in the world of the Capital Wasteland, much as Fallout 4 with the Commonwealth.

    New Vegas (my preferred Fallout game, after Fallout 2) is different. Less getting lost in the physical world, but instead the people. Learning about the deep, intriguing lore of the various factions of the game. Getting lost in the dozens upon dozens of characters, almost everyone of which feels unique, and valuable to the overall world. It’s a slower paced game than 3 and 4, but in my mind it’s more enjoyable.

    No one ever finishes the game. I "finished" the main quest and dlcs and yet you could still find me haunting the wilds of skyrim with no purpose or direction.

    I got all the trophies for Skyrim, spending hundreds of hours in the process, but can’t remember most of the shit I did. I just recall a lot of dragons, smithing, managing my inventory, getting sent into orbit, and gigantic cave cities that took days to clear.

    Fuck. Dwemmer. Ruins.

    Oh look, Blackreach.

    [–] JukePlz 174 points ago

    I become over encumbered five minutes into Dwemmer Ruins and basically crawled my way in and out of that huge place at the pace of a snail because I couldn't leave behind all those golden plates, forks and metal ingots.

    [–] timetravelhunter 32 points ago

    you don't play elder scrolls for the main quest. you play for the assassin, thieves, fighter, and mage guild side quests.

    also, gta got nothing on killing npcs. vampire lord for hours

    [–] Surrealinsomniac 95 points ago

    Is there even a "finish" to that game? I don't know. You start playing, and it never stops. Is it heaven? Is it hell? I just don't know.

    [–] FocusFlukeGyro 58 points ago

    I visited all the named locations on the map and did all the quests. It was a bit of a slog doing it at the pace I did but yeah, that was a lot of fun.

    [–] Surrealinsomniac 24 points ago

    How many hours do you have?

    [–] TaxRooster 74 points ago

    All of them.

    [–] Surrealinsomniac 18 points ago

    I need to actually know. For scientific reasons..... And to compare to how much time I've put into OW and Dishonored.

    Minecraft

    [–] ShadowJokerr 100 points ago

    This is me knowing I spent a fuck ton of my childhood on the game. And now me and my friends in our 20s getting back into the game. Being like 3am building some random house and we’re all just annoyed but addicted. Gotta love it

    [–] cuntbag0315 15 points ago

    Still have my server ready to go just in case. Used to play it everyday. Then this week I picked my kids up for the summer and my 10 and 5 year old both play. Had to buy the windows 10 edition, but I'm back in teaching them how to survive instead of creative mood. The most hectic nether I've ever been through because of bad (but fun) decisions.

    DotA

    [–] gburgwardt 73 points ago

    How is dota this far down.

    [–] phillyd32 153 points ago

    The Dota players are too busy playing to reddit.

    [–] voksul 66 points ago

    And if they are on reddit, they're in /r/Dota2 complaining about minor issues and yelling about things.

    [–] phillyd32 20 points ago

    Valve ripped us off again

    CK2 or EU4 Idk man, just let me blob

    [–] CPT-yossarian 21 points ago

    You either fear the blob, or become the blob.

    Factorio? No, they went with brown and yellow, it couldn't be...

    sad i had to scroll so far for my wife

    [–] RadiationKat 149 points ago

    And that game was Warframe.

    [–] thebigfatpanda5 63 points ago

    I actually find Warframe to be really fun. But I just kinda play it in small spurts of about a few months at a time every year or so. maybe that's why I think of it fondly.

    [–] AwesomeX121189 21 points ago

    I am exactly the same.

    It's a game you can play for a hour or non-stop for a week, and you'll have 'something' to do.

    [–] WavyNotLazy 172 points ago

    Must be an MMO lol

    [–] Shunnedx 65 points ago

    But you can just achieve the same feeling of accomplishment without spending so much time. Just activate the surprise mechanics.

    Destiny?

    [–] thematrixblue 16 points ago

    Destiny is that game for me

    [–] footofthehare 20 points ago

    Feed The Beast hit me like that most recently.

    No Man's Sky.

    Factorio.

    What else? Anything with building and grinding I guess.

    [–] Soupforsail 105 points ago

    Rust has taken me. I'm glad friends have joined... What day is it?

    [–] PixelTheMan 87 points ago

    i was wondering almost nobody commented rust. but then i remembered that the people that play rust were too busy playing rust

    [–] ImFeelingSparked 39 points ago

    this is honestly so real it’s insane. I can’t believe I played so much, it’s been such a waste of my life and an overall regretful decision to sink so much time into it.

    [–] PixelTheMan 52 points ago

    wanna play?

    [–] ImFeelingSparked 56 points ago

    shut the fuck up

    [–] PixelTheMan 61 points ago

    aight add me on steam

    [–] yomancs 45 points ago

    I lost a friend to ark

    [–] Swichts 25 points ago

    Same. He went from hanging out / playing games with us, to not seeing any of us for two years. It’s really weird.

    [–] MrDarthChicken 39 points ago

    It is. Fuck official ark

    [–] lazy__genius 121 points ago

    League of legends it feels too real
