As we have it for nearly every other topic, I thought it would work for gaming too.



Currently playing Hitman: Season 1. Really enjoying this game. Had forgotten how much fun it was infiltrating and waiting for that perfect moment.

I just finished playing through GTA Vice City and San Andreas, after downloading them through PS4. Still a lot of fun.

I started playing Witcher 3, but it was getting too complicated. I don't want to have to remember things or make things all the time.

Horizon Zero Dawn looks amazing but I'm wary of it for the same reasons. I don't have the time to play it so much that I remember everything, so I'm interested to know if it is something you can play casually.

In the meantime I play NBA 2k16...

Very psyched to give it a go. It seems similar to Shadow of Mordor, so I can't imagine why you couldn't play it casually. Though it would be time consuming.

Though I guess the question is, what do you consider casual?

Something where you can play it for 30 mins to an hour here a couple of times a week, and be able to make progress without having to re-learn the game every time you go back to it.

I only started like 2 weeks ago when I was in a limited state of work-less-ness and I'm having fun with it (after a ton of modding that is) still a pretty broken mess but that's to be expected.

Ha ha. I'm about to finish the campaign for Battlefield 4 for the first time. armata_PDT_04.gif

Aside from that, not much. Guild Wars 2 has grabbed my attention again.

Would love to get some Horizon Zero Dawn, but alas I don't own a PS4 at the moment.

Picked up Ghost Recon Wildlands today, so having heaps of fun at the moment roaming Bolivia taking down baddies.

Breath of the Wild - quite possibly one of the greatest things ever.

If you dial the difficulty down you can pretty much ignore all the potions and oils and stuff and just play the story.

It's absolutely worth the effort too - I've clocked 140 hours since I started playing it, and it still feels fresh and interesting. From a story/narrative perspective it's the best RPG I've ever played.

Playing a bit of that too - it plays quite similar to the recent Tomb Raider games, except for the giant robot dinosaurs.

Not that far in, but so far really like it.

I've really gotten into the New Horizon's mod for Stellaris. It's still in Alpha but it turns the game into a Star Trek grand strategy that starts off from Enterprise onwards with pretty much every races playable except the Borg. There are 5 major factions and even smaller factions like the Tholians have their own models.

Think on it.

Too many things!

Civilisation VI, World of Warships, The Division, Torment: Tides of Numenera, Forza Horizon 3, Battlefield 1, World of Tanks, and Magic Duels are probably the ones getting the most love. Ghost Recon is waiting for me when I get back home next week.

I finished a full run through of the Mass Effect trilogy again last week - I'd forgotten just how insanely hard the last fight in both 2 and 3 were. Being an Engineer maybe wasn't the best choice I could have made...

Just bought Crusader Kings 2 ($10 on sale on Steam). I've heard lots of good things about it. So far I've only played an hour or so of the learning scenario, so I still don't have much of a clue what I'm doing.

To date I've sired a boy and a girl with my wife and another girl with my mistress.

Thanks for that tip, I did that and I'm finding it a lot more enjoyable. I've also figured out that it's a lot more fun if you meditate at night rather than explore, so you can see where you are going and not get so lost.

Yeah aside from the occasional night-based encounter needed for a quest, I usually meditate till dawn.

Game is too pretty to play in the dark.

It's also worth keeping a torch or two on hand for caves, which tend to be pitch black, and a better option than using the Cat potions.

Yes I just found out you can get torches, I haven't come across one yet.

This seems to be one of those game where money doesn't just accumulate, I seem to be spending a lot of money on food but not finding a lot in my travels.

Unlike some other games where I become ridiculously wealthy without realising it.

Money isn't too hard to come across as long as you're selling the stuff to the right vendor. And doing every contract possible.

It's been a while but I'm pretty sure it was only crafting master level gear that really cleaned me out.

Exploring all the location question marks brings in heap of money, also all the crafting materials you'll ever need.

Dont forget to exchange currency also, I went from about 80000 to over 100000 when I exchanged all my other coins.

Biggest problem for me is playing the game out of order and then putting it down unfinished for ages.

I have no idea what is going on anymore.

Need to start a fresh game and play it correctly some day.

Playing some Helldivers and Everspace.

Everspace is heaps of fun and gorgeous, basically it's Freelancer as a rouge lite.
When you die you lose everything except your money which you can use before starting a new run to unlock perks and upgrades for each ship.
Lots of fun and its certainly difficult!
