Video Games: What are you playing?

<< < (209/212) > >>

palaeomerus:
I miss NCAA and Blitz or at least some Arcadey style of football game. The ONLY EA sports game I currently like is Golf and I'm not a fan of actual Golf coverage or playing the real game.

King Tyranno:
I tried No Man's Sky again after being told it was redeemed and good now.

Remind me to never listen to the Internet again. The game went from disastrous wreck to mediocre survival sim. Has anyone actually played it recently or do you all just get your opinions from the flashy trailers? I really must know because the game I actually played is not the game the internet is describing to me.  It's a dull game with tedious survival mechanics. Backed up by half assed new features that barely interact with one another. Every single thing you do is just a grind to get to the next grindy bit. There's no real sense of agency or reactivity from AI factions compared to say the X games.

Also I played the new Pathfinder game. The characters annoyed me but I'm still enjoying the game.

I'd heard there was lots more content for NMS, so I gave it a go.
There's definitely an improvement, But yeah, the survival part is pretty boring.
Still, that could be that I've played a lot of survival sim type games, so the bar is probably higher quality wise for me.
Since then I've not really played it much, although I might play it again on the weekend to check out some of the new towns features. If that's interesting enough, it might be worth playing some more.

Actually, I reinstalled Freelancer ( a space sim from 2003). As a newish HD graphics mod came out that also fixes some Windows 10 compatibility issues . I've quite enjoyed that.

I didn't really like the Pathfinder CRPG much, it felt quite clunky to me.
I DID get Solasta, a CRPG based on DND 5e, which was pretty fun and moved pretty fast. It had a fun story too.


tenbones:
Currently finishing up Wasteland III (it's excellent if you like tactical turn-based gaming).

About to dive into Back 4 Blood until Battlefield 2042 drops (barring any SJW bullshit... thus far DICE seems to have learned their lesson)

oggsmash:
Neverwinter Nights Enhanced edition.   I played it a good bit years ago when it was first released, and had all the expansions (though I did not play the campaign that much, and enjoyed the persistent worlds and playing the player made and premium modules that were available) and I liked it alot.  I do not know if it is nostalgia, or some tweaks they made to the game, or that games are just not really moving forward to my liking, but I enjoy it a lot today as well.
