    poului a bit overrated

    Outer Wilds. It's a great idea but I found the gameplay and controls exhausting. I get the impression most others have praised its format as original, which it is, but I get very frustrated with it.

    Witcher 3

    I think this might be the case for a while.

    Got the original Deus Ex off GOG.com the other day, plus a package of mods and improvements. Still fun.

    I still like to play the final mariachi level on occasion. It makes me smile.

    Just bought Age of Empires II off Humble Bundle. I have no idea why though as I have a huge backlog of games. I bought Witcher 3 the other day and only done the first little bit plus I'm playing BFV loads too. I think I have that disease that people have where they buy clothes constantly but never wear them :-( I still need to finish Zelda on the switch before they release the next one!

    Sadly far to buggy. It's a beautiful game and the story is engaging with great cut scenes. I've lost my rag with it on the Archery training as I couldn't even draw my bow properly and then it ended. Not a fan of the combat system either. Real pity as it's a great idea with lovely detail. I might come back to it.

    Installed Archeage this afternoon because I was bored. It didn't help - paper-thin quests, terrible PvE (mobs have virtually zero aggro radius while also having a ridiculously fast respawn rate), and everyone looks like a porn anime character.

    Child Of Light on the Switch, a pretty and sweet fairytale sideways-scrolling western JRPG that is sometimes a bit difficult but is always straightforward enough for my burned-out brain to understand. The "timeline" in battles is a good example of a simple mechanic with a lot of potential. I see it's been mentioned a couple of times on this thread - it would be good for children, though they might want to turn the difficulty down a little if they were younger. (Or maybe I'm just rubbish.)

    Forza Horizon 4. Very nice, and suited to my (lack of) skill level. Wonderful just driving around the British countryside, demolishing drystone walls, etc

    Rage 2 - very disappointing compulsive purchase.
    Far Cry Primal - mildly disappointing compulsive purchase
    Battlefield 4 - very very disappointing compulsive purchase
    I need to block my Playstation 4 account from making credit card purchases. :oops:

    Parkitect - a theme park builder sim game. Perfect for me.

    Yeah, Far Cry Primal.

    Lots and lots and lots to do.
    Not very much you *want* to do.

    fucthest8 What the zarking fardwark was that?

    Subnautica. Loving it. About 9 hours in, just built my first habitat. Had to rebuild my Seamoth* after some massive toothy thing ate it :mad:
    They seem to have the pacing just right, not too grindy, nice little story arc side missions. Also, death matters - no multiple save points, no going back to your one save point at all (unless you quit before dying). Which is annoying, but it teaches you TO MIND THE TOOTHY THINGS and watch your air, and food/water/health ... yeah, very good.

    I'm enjoying Rage 2, its got the feel of doom to it, its a nice break from dark souls 3 to be able to go and mindlessly shoot stuff, helps that I got it for £18.99 from cdkeys

    Sure but at least you didn't blow - what, £50? like you did on Rage2
    So, er, that's some consolation? Maybe?

    I still think it's a shit re-skin of the Mad Max game.

    Been playing Stacking, a 2011 puzzle game where you're a Matryoshka doll - you stack inside larger dolls to use their abilities to solve puzzles across multiple levels and rescue your family. It's pretty fun, with a lovely aesthetic and music.

    Just a heads up. Looks like Heavy Rain and Journey have ported over to PC on Epic.

    Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

    If you've ever enjoyed a Castlevania game, you will love it. Not sure we needed the cooking food aspect, but it can be ignored entirely and you can still finish the game.

    mauvais change has become unavoidable

    I'm playing Life Is Strange 2. There's a free demo of something related, Captain Spirit, which you end up needing to play if you do LiS2 anyway.

    Completed this on Tuesday night. Well I say completed, enough to get the end credits rolling, may go back and try and get every teensie at some point but my pile of shame is still quite high. Speaking of which started and also finished halo 5 in just several days over 13 hours. I like to go for as many achievements as possible in these sort of games but in the end just decided to blast my way through the game. Decent enough story, looks pretty but probably should have cranked the difficulty up from normal as it was stupidly easy and didn’t require any thinking at all. Straight up run and gun in a call of duty style single player campaign which was a little disappointing to be honest. I remember the other halo games being a bit more challenging.

    Onto dirt rally next which will either be something I end up playing now for hours upon hours or will get bored of quite quickly. It’s usually one or the other with racing games.

    The last 5 or so teensies are infuriating and not worth the bother. It's those timed ones that will get you. I went back to get every teensie in the normal levels, if only because I love the "Ooooooooh" when you find a secret area.

    Far Cry 5 - picked up the Gold Edition fairly cheaply. Starting to get sucked in...
