League (ARAM) and Bloons TD 6 (mobile). I've almost finished downloading Warhammer: Vermintide 2, but probably won't play it until next week.

I am onto the remaster or Destroy All Humans now. Once I’m done, either We Happy Few or World War Z is next

I tend to focus on one game at a time (Dec. 1996 through 2013-ish was devoted strictly to the Diablo series (mainly D1 and D2), until I got bored with D3 at some point after the expansion [though the D3 expansion improved greatly on D3's initial release, in my opinion]), until I moved on to Marvel Heroes (I'm a big fan of the Breviks, both David and Divo) until Gazillion folded, then Star Wars: The Old Republic until I got bored with the "Eternal Throne" story-line, and moved to The Elder Scrolls Online, where I currently reside, primarily.

I still play Diablo and Diablo II: Lord of Destruction, regularly (I still have characters I created back in the '90s), and occasionally Grim Dawn and Path of Exile.
I added The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim to my list of favorites after playing it for the first time last year (many years behind everyone else).

(The original Diablo will forever be my all-time favorite game, with D2:LoD being a close second.)

All of the above games are currently installed on my computer and I recently started playing Darkest Dungeon, as well, but I am mostly involved with just ESO at the moment.

I am also looking forward to the release of Diablo IV, if I don't die of old age before they release it.

Speaking of games, have you seen the ad-buster video Epic Games put out when Apple responded to Epic's link to buy in-game currency outside of Apple's App Store by striking Fortnite from the App Store? The video very pointedly purports to hold up a mirror to the company whose 1984 Superbowl Video promised their machines would spark a rebellion against big computing hegemony.

I'm considering adding 'Among Us' to my game collection, but I won't if it requires Steam.
(I refuse to use Steam for anything.)

I know it's also available on mobile, but I don't play mobile games, either.
(If a game can't be installed as a stand-alone PC game, then I won't be playing it, said the grumpy old PC Gamer).


Edit: I took a plunge and bought it (it's a five dollar game) from the developer website.
It came as a .zip file, so I downloaded the .zip file and extracted the files to my C: drive, and used the .exe file to start the game.
It runs fine without Steam (Yay!), though it does come with a Steam key if one might prefer to play it that way.
(And you can also purchase the game through Steam, from what I've been told.)
