Well, while I HAVE played RPG's like Skyrim, I often tire of them. I don't think I even got to the halfway point in Skyrim. I thought Fallout 2 was great way back in the day. I haven't played any of the recent Fallout games though. I was really big into Battlefield 3 for a while. For the last couple of years I've been playing World of Warships almost exclusively, but stopped playing shortly before christmas in order to devote time to RDR2.

I guess with RDR2 I fell in love with the 'story' aspect of playing such a game.

I'll definitely take a look at 'The Witcher', as I have heard it's excellent. Same goes for Mass Effect.

Mass Effect has the Legendary Edition which is due out this year, so I would wait for that. If you love story lines and falling in love with Characters, then it is for sure a good choice.

For my Hack and Slash sorta needs, State of Decay 2 is fun and rewarding, and with the new insane difficulty quite stressful at times.
Again, you have to love Zombies for that, and survival games. STill fun and very replay worthy.

Witcher is good, not my particular game but my wife loves it, and I've heard nothing but good things about it so its probably worth a try.

I have been having fun in the latest version of No Mans Sky too (its so much better than original release) but it takes a lot of getting used to and paitence for that one.

The newest Assassin's Creed that I have is Odyssey and there is definitely fun to be had there. I find it a little repetitive in places, but good. I also hear good things about Valhalla but I haven't played that one so can't speak from experience. It is on my list though as I think I'd enjoy the setting better than Odyssey.

I am enjoying Horizon Zero Dawn (did I already mentioned that one?). It is kind of open-world although it does funnel you some, but I am finding the story decent so far.
I forgot that Horizon Zero Dawn is on PCs now. That might be gba's best bet. Really decent game, interesting story. If he likes it, the Tomb Raider remake might be worth a look too. Gameplay wise they're very similar.

Not only is the gameplay similar I'm pretty sure someone copied the Lara Croft animations for Aloy! Especially when she is moving across a tightrope type path. Not a criticism just made me do a double-take a couple of times.

Aside, the voice actor for Aloy is the same woman that did the voice for Parvati Holcomb in The Outer Worlds. It was driving me nuts where I knew the voice from. Apparently if you look her up, Ashly Burch, she's done a lot of game voice acting.

And that is another good game, The Outer Worlds, lol lots of options. Sheesh, I still haven't finished that one either!

Playing Battlefront 2 campaign. Don't think all too highly of it so far. It looks really good. But gameplay just doesn't translate well for single player. Coming from CP2077, combat feels really clumsy.

EDIT: But honestly the biggest issue I have is if a controller disconnects for even 1s you need to relaunch the damn game. Unplugged controller from charger, now need to relaunch the damn game.

Edit2: Still hit a fan of blaster combat. But space combat was actually pretty decent.

Logged about 100 hrs into CP2077 and thoroughly enjoyed it after obtaining an RTX 3090. The game absolutely destroyed my 1080ti at 3440x1440.
Now I'm holding off on doing a second playthrough until they've polished it up a bit + added DLC.

Finished the campaign last night. It grew on me. I enjoyed most of it once I found weapons / abilities that worked for me.

Just loaded up MS Flight Sim 2020. Figured "ah maybe a nice relaxing flight is a good gaming option tonight."

Update required... 39.89 GiB ... :oops: I have a fast internet connection but wowy... I might not get my flight in tonight!

Note to self: load MSFS2020 much more frequently... just because...
