I 've been a gamer for 40 or so years from the first pong home game to pen and paper D&D games. Right now I'm on xbox (yeah I know fuck bill gates).

Anyway I find it very therapeutic to go into online games and dominate other players.
(it actually benefits my skill curve if I imagine my competitors as the deep state and their collaborators).

My current favorite game is Red Dead Redemption 2. Western version of GTA. Best story mode in history of video games in my humble opinion.

What's you're goto game? Other than Call of Duty. (game staled years ago)

I just finished Kingdom Come Deliverance, awesome game, challenging RPG where you start as a peasant blacksmiths son and work your way up. Lots of Christianity in the game which is cool, very European. I recommend if you like open world rpgs like Fallout 3/NV/4

Playing Pathfinder Kingmaker right now it was on sale on xbox, a CRPG which is alright so far.

I enjoyed that one a lot. It was very immersive, and I like the details - like piles of crap in the roads.

It's a difficult game where you really have to learn to swordfight because button mashing won't do it.

I got to rebuild a town in the DLC, but believe it should have been Skalitz.

Hopefully, that will be an option in the sequel.

I'd recommend Kingdoms of Amalur: Re- Reckoning.

Great game, with an interesting backstory.

Yes, the first time I played the game on game pass my right joystick was messed up and always tilted straight up and I couldn't win a single sword fight... By time I got a new controller the game wasn't on game pass anymore but I bought the definitive version on sale and finished it not long ago. I am almost done with the max level achievement and I'm still rebuilding that town but I plan to finish that over time, just taking a break.

And thanks, Kingdoms of Amalur: Re- Reckoning.looks nice I put it on my list

PC master race here but I feel you. Just played Days Gone. If you like single player open world, I recommend. Pumped for a good Battlefield this year.

Pop music videos and pushups if that counts as a game.

I still play Age of Empire 2 on Voobly everyday. Player base is getting smaller now the Definitive Edition came out so I may have to move over at some point. But its my go to unwind game everyday. Until I get a fucking noob on my team anyway....Normally its others calling me that. I particularly love Argentinians getting mad at me and stating that's why we won't let you have "Las malvinas" (The falkland islands). They go into some kind of frenzy when that's mentioned. I am from the UK so it works.

I love AOE, I have the definitive for PC and African Kingdoms but I haven't been playing much lately. I did go through AOE Rise of Rose and play all the roman campaigns a few months ago though.

The Legend of Heroes Trails of Cold Steel series is good a time sink

Xbox One X is my go to for gaming here. Got an invite to the Halo Infinite tech preview this weekend. Got in about a half-dozen matches, but most of today has been matches crashing during map loading. It's pretty good so far, but there's no vehicle action yet, just an area for viewing and modding appearance. Been hitting Star Trek Online a lot lately after I switched it up from months of World of Tanks. In a way it's fun and relaxing, but games these days seem like a job or boring chores.

Right now, Yakuza: Like a Dragon. Free with Xbox game pass. Highly recommended.

Last Shelter Survival on mobile devices, it offers a distraction from real life, but since it's heavily pay to play, you won't be able to compete at the top level like the Chinese and Korean players who literally dump $1000s a week into being the top dogs... It's also a 24/7 game in real time, there is no pausing it or exiting the game continues around and even with your base even when you are not signed on... Plus there are certain events and task every hour of every day, so if you want to do one of those you have to sign in at that time or miss out...

I'm free to play so even after 2 years of EVERYDAY play, I'm still lightyears behind those that dump money in to it and I have over 30 farm accounts that I can leverage to make it easier but you still will never keep up with those that spend money... But I have built up many online friends in that time across the glove so it's still fun as I get to interact and chat with them... I'm in a state with some crazy big Korean spenders so they do all the heavy lifting allowing me and some others to just do my own things and not be constantly wiped out...

Also the in game politics can be as bad as real life sometimes far worse as it is a war game.

Escape from tarkov, at first you'll hate the game, it will ride your ass and there will be no lube and you'll love every bit of it. Tarkov goes for realism, real guns, real parts, realistic bullet physics and it just keeps getting better, but keep in mind the game is still beta.

Black and white 2, dwarf fortress, rimworld, and games similar to these.

Wtf, the story mode for rdr2 was woke crap. Utterly uninteresting. Minority characters with no personality forced in. A story that didn’t make sense. Characters who had no logic. Token woman feminist who could murder 4 men with her bare hands.

Every villain was a white man. Even the bow and arrow skinner gang that was based on Indians were white.

Countless monologues about how the white man is the true savage and not the Indian etc. And more anti racist bull crap that would never exist in 1900 America. The game was such a disappointment.
