Game Night Feedback Thread


Recommended Posts

Events Team · Posted

No polls, no funny business, that will come later today!!!!

So my thoughts here.  What do you all have for me, what would you like to see, what would you like to be different.  Is 1 game a bad thing to do since some folks don't like the game chosen?  Would someone like to step up and always host a mario kart lobby, an among us lobby.....would you just prefer to keep it the way it is?  

I would love hearing from you all on what you think is a way to refine the process.

Would you like more than one voice channel?  Would you like to schedule, the first hour for 1 game, the second hour for another game, then whatever the remaining crowd wants to play?  These are the burning questions I wanna know.  

How am I doing as a host?  Is there anything you need from me?  Something that you might think I need to do to make it a better experience?

How are the game choices......One thing I thought this last time, and I could totally be wrong, is that participation was lower because it is getting stale?  Maybe I read too much into it?  Not sure.  

This all being said, u all will still have your bi-weekly game nights, I am just looking for possible improvements suggestions.  

I personally like the way it is setup, but would love to hear your responses, because maybe it is something that could be implemented.

If I am doing a good enough job and you just want to tell me that too, then go for it.  I have no issue taking any kind of criticism.  I will not hold it against you and kill u first everytime 😏.  But seriously, let me know what your thoughts are, I wanna keep it as friendly as possible for all to be able to participate in.  This is about coming together, having fun and just enjoying 2 nights a month with friends who we have met through the great community we have here.  

--Jeeves

Also, if there are ever any concerns just pm me and bring it to my attention.  I would not like someone to feel they can't voice their opinion, but if you want to do so privately feel free!  I think the regular group we have is a generally good group and can all take criticism and evolve.

My feedback is that people need to quit playing some of these games so much.  They're clearly too good 😅 For real though, my feedback is that Jeevan does an awesome job running these, at the cost

I think Game Night is fantastic just the way it is

No complaints here, @Jeevan. *Every* game night has been fun.

For real though, my feedback is that Jeevan does an awesome job running these, at the cost of his own schedule, while asking for nothing in return, which means people need to stop griping about silly little things.

These have been super fun and I'm happy y'all let me join in even before being a site member. I think one or two games for the night is great like we are already doing.

 

However I think we should change up the games a bit more, I seems we keep voting the same. So maybe an idea could be one of we play a game one night it's not added back to the poll until the 3rd meeting. Like if we play game A on night one it's not eligible for voting until night three. Might help keep it lively? 

 

And jeevan youre a great host. Thanks for putting this together for us. 😁😁😁

I think the current format works and you're doing a great job of handling and juggling everything.  One thing I would suggest as a change would be having a dedicated voice channel in addition to a dedicated chat channel specifically for game night.  It doesn't always happen, but when folks who aren't participating and/or aren't interested in participating show up and start having conversations that aren't related to game night and what's going on therein, it's a real distraction.  This got to be problematic this past time when we were playing games where we verbally had to communicate with one another, over top of one another, and there was occasionally another, totally unrelated conversation going on at the same time.

I still prefer Discord for all of our chat related services, but am willing to go whole hog to Gather if it makes things easier should they update their interface to scale properly so everybody can see everything in a room, that there are other rooms, etc. 😉

We are still looking into gather, i was thinking that a dedicated voice channel instead of general might be something to add as well, but can't really stop people from coming in.  That being said, will take this into consideration.  +1 for gather 😉  lol

Edit:  Also, in regards to the late start/channel not being there, my wife had me flustered kuz she threw a birthday thing on me at the last minute!!!!  haha, i know u all understand so sorry but it happens and we all know it 😉

Well, +1 for a fixed, fully operational and featured Gather, anyway, lol.  Seriously, on any screen I have that gets "zoomed" by Windows to make the text more legible (even the "only" 1080p ones), Gather just doesn't scale the video stuff at the top of the screen properly and it blocks out more and more of what's up there the higher the Windows zoom/scaling is.  The ability to turn off, resize, etc. the "buddy" icons at the top would be a great feature and solve this single, outstanding issue with the new platform.  Fingers crossed they do so.

let's hope so, can't guarantee it tho.  so for now we will continue our discord chats until we see what they do.

I work every Saturday night unfortunately. Tues and Wed are usually my nights off, sometimes Monday. It's alright, I know the weekend is best for most people.

      Anybody interested in playing this game?  @Mega Tank, @ChickenTendas, potentially, and myself are interested in playing and would be more than happy if you would like to join.  
      I have never played, but I have watched several youtube vids on it and it seems like a good time.  That being said we would like to voice chat on the VGS Discord so we can discuss.  If you have never heard of this game before, look it up.  If you already play, please join.  
      The game is free to play on mobile and $5 on steam for the pc.  It is cross platform so if you do not wish to cough up the $5 then you do not have to!!!!!!
      The lobby is 10 players max, but we can always rotate folks out, or setup other lobbies as well.
      Maybe this will be the start of something I have wanted to do, which is a biweekly game night.  This could be a fun addition to a mix of games we could all play together.  
      Let me know here, or on discord.  More than happy to have you if you so choose to play!
      Edit:  Guess I might need to post a time when to play.  I am thinking maybe this Saturday if anyone is interested, after 5pm EST.  Suggestions are welcome!
      Also, if you wanna watch, don't have to watch the whole vid, but this is one of the youtubers I found that streams it on the regular:

      VGS's bi-weekly game night, this time we will be playing Among Us.  If you haven't played it before you can play for free (w/ ads) on mobile devices or you can purchase the game on Steam for $5.  It's also available on Switch.  The great thing is it's a cross platform game so no matter what you chose you can play  with the group.  Just be sure to join the VGS Discord so you can see the private game code to join the fun.  And also that is where we will have some fun chit chat.  If you are the shy type you don't need to talk though.  For more details on the event check out the thread and vote for what game we may play later in the night; https://www.videogamesage.com/topic/7182-game-night-432021/
