    Been pretty heavy into Wargaming titles these past couple of years. World of Tanks, World of Warships. If any of you homos are on there lemme know and we can division/squad up.

    Also an original Kickstarter backer for Star Citizen. That is finally starting to really come alive. It looks amazing. The Squadron 42 updates and dev log showing next year for an alpha/beta release is exciting.

    Recently picked up a little indie title on Steam called Noita. Hella fun blowing shit up. Great gaming value for $17.

    Eyeballing that new Fallen Order Star Wars game that dropped today but I'm a cheap ass when it comes to buying games these days. Spoiled by Steam sales and Humble Bundle packs.

    Anyhow, dunno if you guys are gamers but thought I'd maybe start a thread about what games are fun and what I'm playing.

    Related.. Just got done building a new rig from scratch and it is running butter smooth on max settings. My first AMD rig in a long long time. Went with the new 2070 super hybrid graphics card.

    Im thinking about getting the Star Wars game. Finally gave up on sports games a few years ago.


    Big Dark Souls, Bloodborne, Sekiro fan. Im a glutton for punishment aka Raiders fan after all.

    I’ve been playing a lot since I retired. Apex, Modern Warfare, Madden, NBA2k mostly.

    I just downloaded the Star Wars game. I’ll let you know how it is. Great reviews so far.

    Nice. I hear good things. And I like that EA got threatened with death if they tried to fuck over everyone with micro transaction hell.

    Haven't played tabletop in a whole because I've been on this graveyard schedule at work. Buuuut just got enough seniority to bid for days next year.. so that's changing.

    You ever play Divinity Original Sin, or DOS2 that just came out this year? Old school isometric RPG.. so damned good. Same dudes just got the rights/licensing to do a new Baldurs Gate! I have that on my wishlist/following tag on Steam.

    Sekiro is so fucking hard. I still haven't finished it. After I got WTF dive bombed by the screeching bird fuckers on the rooftop I took a break and just haven't gone back yet.

    I havent messed w Sekiro yet. I do have the game downloaded tho.

    I played Divinity Original Sin II. Really enjoyed it. Turn based games are underrated.

    Hadn’t really been into video games for years until recently. Just been playing some of the old ones. Finished up the Witcher III game a while back which was fantastic. Red Dead was great too. I was a Madden fanatic when I was younger but I don’t online game and it’s not the same playing the computer all the time. I’ll get a COD game here and there and have a few of the really old games that I’ll play with the kids. I’ll probably check out that new Doom game when it comes out.

    I play D&D with my wife's friends and their kids, 40K & MechWarrior with my cousin , MTG with my wife, son, two of my cousins, and my friends. Guiatin, Munchkin, Evolution are about as close to board games as we get. Monopoly gets brought out at family gatherings with my Dad's side. Various card games with my Mom's family.

    Still have minis for Sportsclix Baseball, Chainmail , Axis & Allies naval game, Mage Knight, Wizkids ship game (forget what its called). Should still have a couple of Yugioh decks somewhere that I used to play with my nephew when he was ten.

    Dont get much time to play most of these anymore. When I'm on day I shift I get to meet my friends at a local pizza joint for MTG. Saturday nights are D&D and dinner with my wife's friends. Sometimes I can get a day to play 40k or MechWarrior with my youngest cousin.

    If I get time for video games its usually a few turns of Civ III or Colonization. Don't remember the last time I turned on my Playstation. Wish I could get Mech Commander to work on my computer. Was a fun real time strategy but wont install on a computer without Windows 95.

    Gears of War 5 was super fun, and I really dug Shadow of Mordor and Shadow of War. Going to get Modern Warfare for Christmas I think.

    I’m a few years behind but I saw GTA 5 or whatever rated as the best game ever but I found it boring as hell.

    Don't play as much as I used to (Table Top or Video). My son pretty much took over my Xbox and Steam accounts. Someday I'll get back to doing it all again, once some of this work shit is out of the way.

    It's alright. Skyrim (especially on PC with all the available graphics / gameplay mods) is 1000% the best game of all time. Not even close.

    I keep seeing Witcher 3 go on/off sale and think maaaaaybe.. but haven't pulled the trigger yet. I tend to binge hard on one or two games at a time, so I will wait until I get sick of one or finish something before moving on.

    Sekiro is the hardest fucking game. But when you get past a fight you feel so fucking good after dying 100 times.

    Keeping in mind that I’m not a big gamer but I think it’s an incredible game if you’re into the open world stuff. It’s old though so it might not hold up for someone more into it. The story alone is top notch though. Only problem for me is that I got too sucked into it and spent countless hours lol.
