Mechwarrior 5, I’m finally in the mood to game again. Some RDR2 as well. Both a blast in co-op!

Videos of MSFS 2020!

But in seriousness, all I do anymore gaming-wise is an old car racing sim/game (Netkar, by myself), GP Bikes (by PiBoSo, shameless plug, if you like motorcycles and simulations you want this), and various pinball simulators/emulators I have.

MSFS (and other flightsims) were my only personal justification for building gaming PC's. But MSFS was the "anchor store" in that "mall" - without that I just kind of stopped going...

MSFS 2020 is going to make me get back into the higher end, and THAT is going to get me checking out some other games I've missed out on over recent years...

Supreme Commander online via faforever.com . Why play new stuff when old stuff is fun enough? I fall asleep playing most everything else, but Supreme Commander is mentally demanding and engaging when playing versus other people. And when I need true stress relief, Brutal Doom + the heavy metal band soundtrack delivers. Yes, they took real heavy metal bands and recorded the original Doom songs.

Despite my occasional rants about it,World of Warships. Plus the odd IL-2 MP session.

I'm pretty hooked on Nonograms for my casual gaming.

Still the much modded old IL2, as each time I think I have enough to upgrade my 14yr old PC some domestic/car/dog expensive disaster curtails!
Dabble in WoT on laptop occasionally.

New BoX IL2 got your jaded flight simming juices flowing again Chucky?

Tried WoW but the silly distances put me off somewhat, and to be honest at nearly 70, eyesight and reactions aren't what they used to be!

A little. I bought new hardware and some more titles/modules but just can't commit atm. The odd MP session in BoX is where I'm at,mainly doing ground attack,getting mauled in my I-16 and Po-2. Yes,I love to fly the underdog.

Being retired, I can game all day long when I want to.

I play one or more of the following Total war games almost daily.

Rome II (1700 hrs according to Steam)
Shogun II--mostly Fall of the Samurai (6617 hrs according to Steam)
Attila (1683 hrs)
I just fired up an Empire TW campaign yesterday. (only 1100 hours)

I just managed to get the old space sim "Freelancer" to run last week and
played through the campaign.

This prompted me to start looking at new space sim/games, so I got:

Rebel Galaxy Outlaw. (I've played this more than anything else for the last few days)

Everspace (haven't played it much yet)


Cheers


Artillery adds dignity to what would otherwise be a vulgar brawl.

You blow away the time I've put into Shogun 2 and Empire but I've put more time into Rome 2 and Attila so it's a wash.... biggrin

Living in the past, mostly.

Finally started Witcher 3 a few weeks ago. Didn't care for the first one, but after hearing everyone rave about 3 for a few years... yeah, I'm NOT disappointed. It's great. And then, good timing, I saw the show was on Netflix! So I was primed for that. smile

Just bought IL-2- BoS, BoM, BoK + some extra planes. Couldn't be happier with it.

And still driving Assetto Corsa,
A little American Truck Simulator (relaxing!)
Building missions in Arma3,

Playing Duck Game, Castle Crashers, Battle Block Theatre with the kids.

I have the same experience as you. I got through the first Witcher game but often times it felt like a chore and at times I lost interest in the main story but Witcher 3 simply blew me away. It is hands down for me one of the best RPG's I've ever played.


I've not seen the Netflix series yet but it's on my "must watch" list.
