    Portal Revolution for me. I’m at chapter 4 and the Mod feels like a whole complete game. Totally worth trying and if you don’t have portal 2, 1+2 are on discount right now.

    Valheim when solo, Deep Rock Galactic when with friends. 10/10 I didn’t need all that free time anyway

      Valheim is also great with friends by the way. We’re currently playing DRG, but we played Valheim quite a while back and it was a lot of fun together.

    Hollow Knight. Never played it before. Not a huge fan of the genre, but there is no denying that the game is well made.

    Was interested in Baldur’s Gate 3 so I did the only sensible thing, started playing Baldur’s Gate 1! Got the 2nd line up after that.

    I just finished the three King’s Quest remakes by AGD Interactive this weekend. I am playing Fallout New Vegas now.

    Singleplayer I’m playing Cyberpunk Phantom Liberty, which is imo a stellar experience so far. I’m also playing Cassette Beasts on the Steam Deck, which is also a great experience. Like Pokemon, but also different in many ways.

    Multiplayer it’s still Deep Rock Galactic, and I’ve returned a bit to AoE 4.

    Suuuuper late to the game, but a few weeks ago my husband talked me into playing Detroit: Become Human (I shy away from Sci Fi games so I knew nothing about it/was hesitant to play).

    Holy shit. That may have been some of the best fucking writing I’ve ever seen in a game.

    It also got me really turned on to those butterfly effect/QTE games! I finished Little Hope by the Dark Pictures Anthology in one night (last Friday), and I’m in the middle of Man of Medan right now. The writing isn’t as good, but they’re still Hella fun and quirky!

    If anyone else has any reccs for the Butterfly effect/QTE style games, I’m mad obsessed enough and will most definitely play it!

        Ugh, I cannot say enough good things about that game! Top notch story!

        I went into it completely blind, but even if you’ve seen some game play, there are so many choices and endings that you’ll end up surprised no matter what! Everyone that I’ve gushed about it to gushed back if they’ve played it already!

    I finished Jedi: Survivor last week. The story was really good, and all the systems are basically better than the first one. Definitely worth a playthrough.

    Then I started playing Against the Storm (going in basically blind, only knowing it’s a roguelike city builder), and boy it’s fun. The only negative so far is that the rounds can take some time (1-2h if I’m unlucky) and I don’t always have time for a full run since I’ve got two kids taking up the biggest chunk of my day.

        Yes and yes! At least for me. I’ve only got a 1060 6GB, but it managed 30-40 fps on medium in most places, which felt fine to me. I’ve heard that it’s the higher end cards that have been having problems though, so can’t comment on how that is now.

      Do I need to slog thru the first one to get the full experience? Sort of quit and never went back for really no specific reason.

        I agree with bitwaba. You’ll get the most out of the experience if you finish the first one. Easiest difficulty and only focusing on the story should get you through it in a couple of hours.

        Edit: But also, if you really don’t want to there is a recap in the beginning of Survivor that I believe will catch you up ok. (not 100% if that’s enough to bring you up to speed, it’s been a couple of weeks since I saw it)

        Not OP, and am only ~15 hrs into Survivor, but I feel like you should.

        The start of Jedi Survivor after the prologue is that the group of 4 from Fallen Orderwent their separate ways at the end of the game, and youre starting by tracking down one or more of them. So, it’s gonna feel pretty bland if you don’t know who these people are and why you might want to seek them out.

        Just put it on easy and don’t go on any tangents.

        However, even without the story I personally really like the first one because it was my first introduction to a dark souls like combat experience. I enjoyed learning how enemies telegraph their moves and timing my parry and dodge.

        That’s my take anyways.

    Playing through Monster Hunter: World again! World was my first MH game when it first came out on PS4, and man I struggled. I never cleared >!Alatreon!<* or >!Fatalis!<. I used Insect Glaive. Now years later, with time spent in Generations Ultimate and Rise (fully clearing Rise) and finding a love of the Switch Axe it’s fun to see how different World feels now.

    I finally bought Skyrim Anniversary on the latest discount and was pleasantly surprised how stable it is compared to classic, I remember trying to mod the original one but I only got a buggy mess that didn’t even open most of the time and constantly CTDs.

    But after a friend said how stable it is I dipped in after playing through his share of Special Edition, I was able to reach 100 mods and the game had a stable framerate and no crashes, so I bought the AE version since a mod I wanted to use required it and I’m having a blast now with 200 mods as an unarmed Monk.

    Finally got around to playing F.E.A.R. 1 & 2, now going through the DLC for 1, having a great time despite it definitely showing its age with some design choices, like the mandatory valve puzzles of early 2000’s. I’m so glad I bought the RTX 4080 though, definitely getting my money’s worth.

    I’m continuing Daggerfall Unity now that version 1.0 is out. There were only 2 minor issues that I had with it when I previously played, and they both look to be fixed. I’ve joined a knights order, a temple, and the Dark Brotherhood, and got my character up to a high enough level that I would be comfortable with going for the main quest.

    I got Spider-Man 2 for Christmas. So I’m playing through Miles Morales when I’m able to.

    Also, playing Final Fantasy 8 on my phone when I have a few minutes to spare.
