Open Gaming Thread: What are you playing right now?
Let's talk video-games, board-games, mobile games, mind-games, etc. What are you playing right now? :-)
MeFightClub: Per Rotato Ad Astra
15 years ago today, MefightClub was born when herrdoktor posted about hosting a private Metafilter Team Fortress 2 server. Not that much later, stavrosthewonderchicken put up some forums and started the ball rolling on providing a home for the best little gaming community ever. [more inside]
Do a least 35 mefites play Marvel Puzzle Quest?
About three weeks ago MPQ was mentioned in a thread on the blue. At least 35 members favorited comments referencing the game. I play this game... [more inside]
Assemble the party

OLED Nintendo Switch Metafilter Post or did I dream it?
I've looked extensively and cannot find a metafilter thread about the announcement of the Nintendo Switch OLED model. [more inside]
I’ve really been getting into Fall Guys on PlayStation and with Squad mode, playing with other people is even more fun. Instead of going to Reddit and joining with random internet people, I thought I’d see if there are any lovely MeFites that would be interested. [more inside]
Many mefites play MMO/MMORPGs and I thought it might be nice to create a space to share our contacts with one another so we can go on some raids together. Whether it's World of Warcraft (WoW), Elder Scrolls Online (ESO), Black Desert Online (BDO), Final Fantasy XIV (FFXIV), Phantasy Star Online 2 (PSO2), Eve Online (EO), Star Wars The Old Republic (SWTOR), Guild Wars 2 (GW2), Runescape, Star Trek Online (STO), whatever MMO you play, let us share our gamer tags/contacts/character names and join in a virtual space of our choosing to get our game on.
“I'll be there with Bells on! Ho ho!”
I'm playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The game was just released and it's available on the Nintendo Switch. It seems like everyone is playing these days. Let's talk about our islands/towns. What fruit did you end up getting? There are five possibilities (not counting coconuts): apples, cherries, peaches, pears, and oranges. If you're up for it, let's share our Nintendo Switch Friend codes so we can visit each other's islands/towns. This is a super chill game and it makes me happy. If you have the opportunity, consider picking it up. As always, be kind to yourself and to others. Happy crafting, farming, shopping, & exploring friendos.
Platform/system requirements in video game posts
Many thanks to everyone who makes MetaFilter posts about cool new video games! And one request: When possible, could these posts please include information about which platforms the game runs on? [more inside]
Looking back on ten years of FPPs
I've joined many web communities in my life, but none for as long or as wholeheartedly as MetaFilter. I've learned a lot, grown as a person, and taken direction from the thousands of smart, funny, and caring people who write here. And I've been inspired to write, too, putting more time and effort into researching worthwhile posts than I have at any other creative hobby. Sadly, what with work and the news chaos and competing interests it feels like there's less and less time to focus lately, and seeing linkrot erode what I do post is a drag. So when showbiz_liz's lovely celebration of ten years on the blue made me realize my own 10th Mefiversary was approaching, I was moved to do something about it. Nothing on the web lasts forever, but armed with old notes files, the Wayback Machine, and a drive to rediscover my own personal Best of the Web, I plowed through all 149 posts (and a few comments) to recover lost links, check on what had happened since, and organize it all into a single FPP omnibus for your reading pleasure.

MeFi Discord channel
Howdy! So, scrolling through the video game trailers post, I noticed there's quite a few resident gamers here in MeFi. Which made me wonder: Does metafilter have it's own Discord channel? I think it might be a good idea. It would be a good place to banter about politics while queueing for some Overwatch or whatever, and avoiding the casual racism and misoginy that permeates most multiplayer games. For those not in the know, discord is a low latency voice and text app designed for gaming. It's pretty good.
Play our Mario Maker levels!
A few of us (me, naju, Navelgazer, branduno and Elementary Penguin) have been making levels in Super Mario Maker for Wii-U. We've started a blog, mefimariomaker.blogspot.com, to show them off. You don't have to follow or friend us or anything to play 'em, just enter the 16-digit ID codes into Super Mario Maker and play! (This does mean you have to own the game and a Wii-U to play 'em, sadly.) Their difficulty is all over the map. If you have the game and want to post 'em too, just send me a MeMail with your email address and I'll invite you! There is no other requirement, besides being a MeFi member, for posting your levels. It's a Blogger blog, so you'll probably end up needing a Google account.
MetaFilter Clicker Heroes clan, anyone?
So MetaFilter's into clicker games, generally, and the Clicker Heroes 0.20 patch just dropped and adds clans. I couldn't find an existing MetaFilter clan -- and I'm just a few rubies shy of the 50 needed to create one. Anyone else playing CH and feel like teaming up? [more inside]

So, thanks to seanmpuckett and ryanrs, I'm playing EVE Online again. I know that a few others have started (or started back) recently as well. Metafilter used to have a space corporation (by the name of Hurf Durf Moon Eaters) but it seems to have gone by the wayside. Anyone interested in getting the band back together? [more inside]

MeFis on Nintendo DS?
I'd like to organize or provide space for MeFites with a Nintendo DS and one of the several WFC-enabled games (Animal Crossing, MarioKart, Tony Hawk) to share their friend-codes. Anyone else interested? I ache to race against people I'm connected to! I want to bring oranges to your villages!
