    If my only companion is Wilson, who is a volleyball, I guess a volleyball net. 
    You are bending the rules a bit but i guess a volleyball net technically falls under  "game" but i have to ask, wouldn't a basketball hoop be better , to play with Wilson ?
    I assume I will be going crazy if I am talking to my volleyball, so either would work. 

    Or how about I play Twister? No hands and feet Wilson? You lose again! Muhahahahaha.

    If I took a computer game it would be Fallout 4.
    actually your first one makes more sense

    Not at all. Maybe you have a laptop and a solar generator.  >:)

    Without electricity:
    1. Pool table - both a sport and a game so it's a bonus. One of the few games where you can set up a team game and play each part honestly.
    2. Darts - same as pool but I just love pool more.
    3. Basketball and hoop - just shooting baskets is chill and cathartic

    With electricity
    1. No Man's Sky
    2. Pinball - not sure my hands and wrists could take this anymore

    I'll exclude guns and shooting and archery because I think those are cheating.

    Assuming all my time wouldn't be taken up with survival, I would rather have all sorts of instruments and being able to play, mix, and record music rather than game. If I could only have one creative outlet it would be music, next (in order) would be drawing, writing, photography, and painting. I can live without gaming, but if I couldn't do one of those in some way or another I would go crazy(er). :lol:

    I would take a universal table top RPG (like GURPS or Cypher System) and some unfortunate friends who get washed up with me. On the beach during the day, roleplaying at night, that would be paradise. :D

    That would be great. I have severe asthma, a terrible stomach (just about everything I eat makes me sick), and I am built like a twig but hey consider having me join your group.  :D

    If I can bring my PC, with my Steam library fully updated and DL'd onto a PC then I'd be set with thousands of games to choose from completely offline.

    But if I have to stick to only 1 game, I would say Minecraft with a huge 'kitchen sink' mod that offered every type of gameplay you could ever want with my fav graphics/texture pack.

    Gut Out!

    Original Steel Battalion, so I can use its controller as a raft.
    had to look up the controller. Holy Moly. How would you even use something like that?
    The game was awesome and kinda overwhelming, it was a mech sumulator with even a switch for wipers.

    actually your first one makes more sense

    For if there is power on this island, it must be a civilized island. You can't play computer games or console games or even mobile games without power (or internet for mobile games). And if there is power, there is indeed going to be internet (even if its junk satellite internet).

    So actually if this is indeed a pretend castaway style island, all you can take are games that don't require power. Like...horseshoes and lawn darts as Kyleran said. Which are both games, and can also be used as possible hunting tools. If its far away enough then all you can however do is fish...many islands are too far for most animals to get to, except MAYBE birds but depending how far away from a continent not even them.

    So my actual answer is a fishing pole. Because there are fishing simulator games, which means fishing can be considered a game. 

    Ummmm......"inconceivable"??? lol

    Basically, what @Torval said, but in the spirit of the thread (and because @Gutlard made me think of it) I'd pick Dwarf Fortress since it's like staring at a Persian rug that keeps changing shape.

    Wizardry 1, since I played that every day for 5 years, at least I know its something I like

    I could cheat and say the Wizardry Archives so I have some variety

    A bunch of MTG decks. Bringing anything other except maybe DnD makes no sense. Video games are no go. How are you going to play them? Let's be real. ;)

    I like this idea too. I was going to add my pnp books especially the Traveller, ICE, and D&D stuff. I know I know, the ICE and D&D might be vulgar or tawdry but I'm American, what can I say? :p

    1. Skyrim with every mod ever made so I can switch them out at will to keep the game interesting, 
    or... 2. J.O.S.H.U.A. to play thermal nuclear war with.
