So, Netflix has games like Fark has articles?

Oh mobile games. I don't play games on my phone, it gives me a headache. I guess I could try the tablet but I'd have to setup Netflix on the tablet and I don't know my password and life is too hard.

I tried. They were crap. Uninstalled and went on with my life.

"Guess the cancellation date of your favorite Netflix series" is a pretty shiatty game
 
2022-08-08 2:54:05 PM  
Netflix also plans on adding a game based on its original series The Queen's Gambiatchess?

tl;dr   They're apps in the app store.

I dunno, the mad libs-style Netflix Original Movie Script Generator was pretty spot-on.

The only actor they give you is The Rock and you can't bring the budget below $320M. Pretty darn realistic.

Oh, you didn't use the Adam Sandler Hack. $50mm per. Uses three spinning wheels to write the script in about eight minutes.

/not worth playing to get the one good one every 5 to 10 years.

I discovered the games just last week, they have Into the Breach for free so i spent 10 hours playing that and intend on playing it more. I had 100 hours in it on PC and dropped it forever but "working" from home and starting from scratch on my phone got me all excited again.

Snapper Carr: stupid formatting


Idk that sounds like a sweet game

When I first joined, I played their online "movie rating" game. Still getting good movie recommendations, but haven't beat the boss yet.

Poinpy, Shatter and Wonderputt Forever ain't bad.

The hardest part about the Sandler hack is guessing where Sandler wants to take his friends on vacation filming this year.

Using their recommendations to find something I actually want to watch is a kind of game, I guess. Like a long boring game of Monopoly where you give up halfway through and put on Hulu.

/I am enjoying Sandman so far tho

I found "Trivia Crack" on Netflix, played it a few days.  Downloaded the app on my tablet around the same time.

The questions were around "Jeopardy!" $200 tier difficult, and there was 30 seconds of annoying characters dancing around celebrating between every question.  Lost interest pretty quick.

I installed Exploding Kittens and Wonderputt Forever through it. I'll see how it goes. If the second is based on the delightful Flash game Wonderputt I'll be happy.

For a month, I played their "Trivia Quest" interactive game. It was kinda cute.

I didn't know they had other streaming games. To be honest, I absolutely hate their menu system where it "helpfully" plays a trailer for whatever show you land on after half-a-second, making you curse and either move way from it, hit the mute button to get it to shut the hell up, or just say "fark it, I didn't want to watch Netflix anyway" and close the app.

You can simulate it yourself, by just snorting drugs whilst playing chess.

You can get Exploding Kittens without it. I played it a bunch a couple of years ago. It's fun.

I thought Killing Kittens was a PornHub game

I think you would need a really big mobile device to be able to see Into the Breach well enough to play it given the layout of the game board. That being said, it's less than $20 on steam and under $10 when it goes on sale. Subset Studios makes it and FTL: Faster Than Light and both are really, really good games. Easy to learn, hard to master and loads of replayability.

Android OS sucks.

I tried one game and don't remember what it was. I deleted it by the time my poop was finished.

You can switch autoplay trailers off in manage profiles.
