    Still steadily making my way through Dragon Age: Inquisition after a little hiatus.

    Also, when my jump-scare sensibilities are too delicate but I still want the experience, I watch let's plays. I just started watching TheRadBrad's walkthrough of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Hoooo boy. That General Engel. Talk about ironic names.

    Last few years I've been playing Warframe, although they keep nerfing frames/weapons that I've spent time building. Playing less these days. GTA5, since I have a rig now that can handle it (lol a bit late to the party) Always fall back to 90's arcade/mame & other emu stuff.

    Lately I've gotten back into the Sims 2 and the Elder Scrolls games, and have also been planning to go back and re-play some of my old, MS-DOS games. I also decided to try out Treasure Adventure World, and I'm liking it so far.

    An Android game called 80 Days. Exactly what it says on the tin.

    My Xbox One is currently unavailable, and when it was, I was messing around with Fortnite.

    Guild Wars 2. I love how chilled the players are on there. And by chilled, I mean we all ignore each other like proper millennials should ^_^

    Lately, I have returned to the wasteland, for a second run through Fallout 4, this time with all the DLC.

    I got my Xbox One back a few weeks ago and jumped back into Watch Dogs 2, and now that I've gotten to a stopping point, I'm trying to play Grand Theft Auto 5 Online.

    Doing some serious modding of Skyrim SE after being an Ark addict for awhile.
    I like to make things pretty.

    Hmmmm, let's see.... The quests are pretty linear and not quite as story-oriented as I would've liked, but it doesn't detract from the game too much. Might be more of a problem for someone who bores quite easily, though.

    I've also heard it recommended to not play the light-armor classes (elementalists, mesmers and necromancers) when you're just starting out. I tend to pay attention to that sort of thing since my motor coordination isn't the best, but I'm sure for plenty it's really a non-issue.

    You don't have to pay anything to play the base game, but you will have to fork out some if you want the expansions. Only unfortunate thing about that is: you can't have a mount unless you buy the latest expansion.

    Hope that helped a bit :)

    GTA 2 on PC. Yeah it's been a while since I've owned a console. Last time it was XBOX 1. I've played Street Fighter 2 on switch but don't any at the moment. GTA 2 - Such a FREAKIN classic!

    I've been a Battletech fan for a long time, so I've been deep into Harebrained Schemes Battletech which was in beta last year (I was a kickstarter supporter) and has been out since late April, with a recent mod this past month. It has both multiplayer online battles, and also a story around a mercenary group who rescues a new guard of a princess who was driven off her planet by a coup and helps her take back the Aurigan Reach from her totalitarian uncle and cousin.

    Shroud of the Avatar is getting downloaded tonight. I'm super excited to play it, despite the mixed reviews.

    Given the fact TTG is dying soon (or has already?) I finally decided to play Tales From The Borderlands. And holy crap that was fun/awesome/hilarious. So I took another run through The Pre-Sequel as Wilhelm (just standard mode, for the story), and now I'm working through Borderlands 2 again as Gaige.

    I need to play that, now it's out. What did/do you think of it?

    I’m trying out a playthrough of Fatal Frame 1, for Halloween and stuff. I, uh, definitely got my money’s worth. I’m not really an aficionado of horror games, but this is easily one of the spookiest games I’ve played.
    Also, Arcanum is as awesome as I dreamed it would be.
