Typical Offtopic thread, I know, but i am eager to know what you guys consider worthplaying games so I (we) can take a look at them.

For me is:(WOFF makes for the 75% of my PC time)

FSX
Ori and the Blind Forest (best platform game in years)
Perfect Golf
Rise of Flight

Awaiting for Pillars of Eternity.

How do you mean: OTHER games? WOFF is not a game! biggrin


Only occasionally: BORDERLANDS (shooter), RISE OF FLIGHT, and STALKER: SHADOW OF CHERNOBYL

Not installed yet, but looking interesting: DISHONOURED


Now, what is "Ori and the blind Forest"? Sounds interesting!

WOFF a is my favorite, principally because of the campaign.

I'm a fan of Cliffs of Dover updated with Team Fusion's patch. I'm enthusiastic about their next project version 5.0. The campaign will add the Mediterranean theater and make the Beaufighter flyable.

I was playing IL-2 1946 quite a bit until WOFF sucked me in. I like the Pacific operations and flying the De Havilland Mosquito (my all time favorite airplane).

I have Battle of Stalingrad and think the next project Battle of Moscow has potential with 3rd party improvements.

I am a Star Citizen, but my Ghost Hornet is not yet flyable.

I have several DCS modules, but don't have any fun with it. I've not played it more than 2 hours, too steep of a learning curve for me.

Oh... I also have RoF, but rarely fire it up.

I probably spend more time reading forums than actually playing anything but this lot are shortcuts on my PC:

Blue Max gets my most used tick as I am on that at least once a day. (It is a free WWI web based board game).
WOFF of course
ROF not very much but I have bought all of their mods and planes
Wings of Prey for my WWII fix

Like most older folks I also have a cupboard full of ones that I no longer play too.

IL2 1946... Played the heck out of it and still enjoy it.

BOB II... I'm late to the party, but having a good time.

FSX and X-Plane for civilian flying.

ROF... Still on my secondary hard drive, but hardly ever flown

I'm completely drawn to WOFF especially because I love the history of early flight and WOFF has so much history.

I also sometimes enjoy SF2 with a MOD for the Battle of Britain and making custom missions, mostly scrambles.

And I am also a Civil War history buff, playing Scourge of War Gettysburg and Chancellorsville by Matrix Games.

It took almost 5 months to get WOFF to work well with my system and it was more than worth it!

So now I'm practicing landing and aerial combat using QC.

Smooth landings.

Guess I kind of forgot their were other sims than WOFF.
If I had unlimited time to play I might need a break from WOFF I suppose but since I dont I don't!

Thx, Adger!

The best bit will come when you leave QC behind and start a campaign pilot, Tango.

ROF and Il-2 haven't been used in a while, although I've had a lot of time into each of them.

The original Combat Mission series is still engaging.
Operational Art of War III
Grand Prix Legends [all mods]
GTR2
Jutland / Distant Guns
Total War -- Mediaeval and Empire mainly
The old Talonsoft games, especially the Napoleonic and Civil War titles

Thanks Olham.

I always enjoy your posts and learn alot from them and other folks posts as well.

I also like to fly for mostly Germany when I was starting campaigns with Jasta 5 and Jasta 10.

But at that time, I experienced too much stuttering and could not do very well in aerial combat.

Now that I have WOFF operating well on my system, I am practicing combat and landing.

I am poor at dog fighting so I'm going back to training for awhile before starting a fresh campaign.

I thought in QC I would gradually increase the number of my wing men (to 4-5) and the opposing wing men and gradually increase their rating to veteran or ace.

All the best to you and our flight mates.

Tango

I'm just getting back into gaming after being gone for a while. I'm really enjoying WOFF and the pilot campaign. Very immersive and nothing happens the same from mission to mission, the graphics are very nice as well. I'm also playing BOB II alot, also very immersive. Both are perfect for a offliner like me.

Along with WOFF, I use Wings of Prey for any WW II fix I have.

For strategic games I like Europa Universalis IV by Paradox Interactive. It lets you play any nation between 1444 and 1821 and try to rewrite history.

Now that it's baseball season, I've loaded up Out of the Park 16. OOTP is a text(ish) game - you create the strategy, make trades and so forth rather than try to hit the ball or field like in some other games.

For me its mostly:

Making History: The Great War (superb game)
Elite Dangerous (taking a break though waiting for new patches)

Then occasionally:
Halflife Episode 2 (working through it)
Doomdark's Revenge (old remade Spectrum game)
Qvadriga (great Roman chariot racing game)
Kerbal Space Program (sandbox is the best way to play it, dont like the career much)
Call of Duty (playing through it a second time)

And off the computer:
D&D 5th Edition

I may get Steel Armor and Subnautica at some point, and possibly rebuy Silent Hunter 4 because I miss my sub games. Hearts of Iron 4 looks interesting as well.

But I am taking a bit of a rest atm from playing computer games, which I do from time to time.
