Elder Scrolls Online. The negative reviews from a few years ago got to me and I wasn't expecting much from the game, but it turns out that I am having a really good time playing it. I'll probably do a post about it soon.

I was going to ask about your experience with it, but I will now wait for that post.

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger - This is a linear western shooter with simplistic gameplay and a neat narrative gimmick that alters the story mid-mission based on people calling foul on the narrator's embellishments or piping up with a different version. The combat is about as straightforward and shallow as you can get: follow the path, choose a weapon, and shoot enemies in the face. It is a hell of a lot of fun. Plus, it only cost me a dollar.

Dark Souls - I've decided that I am too impatient for this sort of game. It wants you to pay attentions, learn, and react... and I want to rush forward and have fun. Unfortunately for me, dying over and over again is not fun. There is a sense of accomplishment when you do manage to beat a boss or get past a certain area that has been troubling you, but that is just not enough for me.

Far Cry 3 - The game looks great and is even fun after a while, but I had to first get around the awful story and the unnecessary crafting system that has been jammed in there for some reason. Whether that reason is to make it feel more like an RPG--if so, perhaps they should have linked skills with levels instead of missions completed--or to pad out the game's length, I don't know. Apparently, you can do some pretty crazy moves after a while, but I wouldn't know. I bought an assault rifle, upgraded it with a short scope and suppressor, and have been traveling the island ghosting outposts ever since.

Fallout 4 - I played a big chunk of this on PS4 and I was excited to get back into it on PC. Thing is, I've already played a big chunk of this and don't care to relive all the nitty gritty details a second time. I've found that the command console makes the game a much more enjoyable experience. Finally, I can feel free to wander around or get things done without weighing myself down every piece of trash that crosses my path. The downside to playing on PC is that it is a bit buggier than the console version, but who cares about little things like the game finally assigning an NPC duties hours after I placed the actual command and gave up?

Finished Dark Souls 3. Another great entry in the series, I need to go through Bloodborne at some point. I've been playing through co-op with a friend which has been really fun, but it makes things a bit easy in some ways.

I just started Skyrim. Off to a bad start. Very first time in game I was allowed to move myself, they told me to jump, so I did. And I killed myself.

I beat Fallout 4. The story, at least. There is still plenty of stuff left to do. It was both enjoyable and disappointing. The writing leaves much to be desired... especially options. Gorath called the game rigid when I was chatting with him about it and that is about the best word for it. The ending I chose allowed me to spin things in a direction that was more positive and hopeful, a chance at a bright future for the Commonwealth, but then the story just ended and nothing actually changed. Sure, I led the faction, but I couldn't actually do anything to lead or change the direction that the faction had taken up to that point. I was given fetch and kill quests, like I was a errand girl instead of the leader of the biggest, baddest, most technologically advanced faction around. Everything is the same. I can't reassure people that the choice I made was correct, that the faction had changed for the better. Instead, I am a just a monster who murdered a lot of people for the sake of the Commonwealth Boogeymen.

Mobile - Star wars galaxy of heroes

PS4 - GTA5 Online

PC - Red Alert Yuris revenge, Day of defeat, Europa Universailis 3 and Age of empires all get replayed often

Keeping to the classics, that works, all great classics too.

I bought a puzzle game called Opus Magnum, it's by the same guy who did SpaceChem and Infinifactory if anyone ever played them. His games specialise in being kind of easy to do any solution, but insanely difficult to make a nice elegant solution which is where all the challenge lies. Very much enjoy all his games.

Pretty much all of my gaming is being done on the PS4 these days, even though most of my games are on PC. I just received several more PS4 games for Christmas, too, so that will keep things going for a while. Some of the ones that I have played lately, but have not come close to beating, are:

Horizon Zero Dawn - I've come to realize in recent years that open world games are no longer part of my wheelhouse, but Horizon Zero Dawn stands out as one that I actually enjoy playing. I'm somewhere close to thirty hours in and I enjoy the heck out of it, but I have been pacing myself so I doubt that I am as far in as I could be. Good game. I look forward to maybe finishing it one day.

Romancing SaGa 2 - The latest SNES-era Squenix JRPG to get a port to mobile/consoles/PC. I'm not familiar with the series since I avoided JRPGs like a plague for well over a decade (Mystic Quest was a poor choice of introduction to the genre), but I'm having fun with it.

Persona 5 - I put fifty hours into this game when it was released and haven't come close to finishing it. Just picked it up again recently because it was time to do so. Love it.

Blue Reflection - Kind of like Persona 5, except with magic girls. I was given this for Christmas and playing it was fun, but reminded me that I needed to actually finish Persona 5. I'll get back to it after.

Diablo 3 - I played this one back on the PS3, but switched over to the PS4 before I ever finished it. I picked it up cheap recently because several of my friends are also playing it. Decent game, I guess, but it doesn't hold a candle to Diablo 2.

Couldn't get into GTA5 when i bought it, which must've been 2 years ago. Decided to give it a go, and quite liking it. Hope to finish it.

I'm playing the first star ocean on my raspberry pi and I'm playing FfXIV on PS4 right now. I'm enjoying both but I feel combat is a bit slow in FfXIV.

That's not just a feeling. The global cooldown in FFXIV is a bit longer than other MMORPGs, which makes the combat a little slower. You will eventually receive "off global cooldown" skills though and you will weave those between the skills that are on global cooldown, which means you will be better able to take advantage of and actually use the extra time.

I'm still playing World of Warships. It's about the only game I've played seriously in 3 years...... I might need specialist help thinking about it. :p

Lots of new content has been delivered of he past few years, it a great tactical, non-twitch reliant game unlike most FPS like PUBG Overwatch, etc. Good for old buggers like me. :D

I had a brief foray in to Subnautica (which I need to complete, thinking about it). That's a great game but I ran in to some pretty game breaking bugs especially if you play on the hard core  One Life only mode.
