    So, when I want to make a new game, I like to look at other games, that I feel are the best inspiration, since it's always helpful to have a ton of inspiration, in the beginning . .

    For my new game, a stealth-survival-exploration game, I think about Until Dawn, also Resident Evil 7, where the player isn't very strong, or capable, compared to the enemies, and I can learn something from them, perhaps . .

    What games are an inspiration for your current game, and what do you like and, what do you hope to make one day, on your own . .

    I am big FPS and battle royale games fan and a huge fan of Call of Duty series. In the last week or so I have been playing its latest release "Call of Duty: Warzone" and loving every minute of it.

    My biggest inspirations are the atmosphere's of different games like Life is Strange and Red Dead Redemption 2. Both are beautiful in their own right, and for different reasons.

    Resident Evil is awesome but I also love Silent Hill. RE is just more lighter than Silent Hill.

    Scrabble Go, it is fun and social going head to head with others and it is also a very good game for the brain. A healthy mind is where everything starts.

    My favourite games are a long list haha. A few of them though are Zelda : BOTW, RDR2, The Witcher 3, Mount and blade (all of them), I love the Total War series, Age of empires 2 and it goes on and on. Those are mostly just modern.

    Inspiration for my current (and first) game is Grand Theft Auto 1 and 2. I used the top down view from those games and the game is called Street Dealer 2. It's pretty simple. You start with $200 and you can buy and sell drugs. If you have drugs then the police will chase you and you get 3 arrests and then you are in prison for life.

    From 10 years old, my elder brother and I played in the same clan in the League of Legends. My brother is the person who develope in me a love of online games and influenced my choice of profession in the future. While I was in college, I had no free time for this, but now I decided to start playing LoL again and found that I completely lost access to my account. It was sad, but I found a lot of tips and reviews on the Internet about the site where I can safely buy LoL smurfs. It seems to me that this will be a good decision and since I already know how to play LoL, so I don't need to go through training from the first level. Do you think that this isn't cheating?

    Path of Exile is an excellent game. Though it's free to play, it has all of the content and polishes you'd expect from a retail package. Path of Exile offers a long, fully voice-driven campaign and a wealth of lore to discover. Although Path of Exile is primarily geared towards single-player and cooperative multiplayer, it offers a number of PvP (player vs player) features.

    With 7 classes, a skill tree with hundreds and hundreds of different abilities that you can unlock as you climb, hundreds of different powers, and ways to change the basic way these powers work, replayability in Path of Exile goes beyond anything I've seen free game or really any online game.

    Grinding Gear Games never requires payment for game features, content, powers and abilities, or classes and characters.
    They earn their money almost exclusively through cosmetic micro transactions.

    In addition to cosmetics, you can buy additional storage space. The extra storage space may make it a little easier to organize things and hoard trifles, but the space available is enough to play the game without these purchases

    The only thing I could do for Grinding Gear Games is how expensive their cosmetics are. A single new outfit costs $ 42, a pet that follows you only costs $ 3 and $ 20. A hat can cost you around $ 24. Although these cosmetics have no other function in the game than to make you look pretty / cute / scary / fantastic / funny and the company somehow has to make their money, I can't quite accept a price of $ 42 for an outfit. Although this outfit can be used by any character that would require artist and animator changes to match each model, you could argue that you are actually paying $ 42 for 7 versions of the same outfit. That's $ 6 per character for an outfit.

    Ultimately, the value of a cosmetic item lies with each individual player. If you like what you see and it is worth the cost, who should I argue about? But for me, I want to give the company some money for something cool, but not that much money for something that isn't that cool. And i think buy poe Chaos Orb is also a good way to boost the account.

    You can earn various cosmetic items through the seasonal content of the game. Speaking of seasonal content: every three months they offer leagues that add a completely different mechanic to the game and keep it fresh and interesting. By going through it and mastering challenges, you can earn cosmetic items.

    Path of Exile has been available on PC and XBox One for some time. It has just been released on PlayStation 4. This game is FREE. You have no excuse not to try it!
