Last game I finished was subnautica. I just don't care anymore.

I still play Forza Horizon or Trials 3D for fun with friends, but single player games no longer grab me.

That said, I haven't had a decent week long cold for about 5 years, which is the best time to actually play a game these days, so who knows.
Did you download my Forza liveries?

NUFC, YES.
I think the difference is people rewatch movies regularly. A lot of people like me think Battlefield Bad Company 2 is the best online fps console game, but whenever I fire it up, the lobbies are empty.

Imagine thinking something is your favourite, but never ever doing it again because there's a new inferior version out, then another, then another.

Gaming companies waste time remastering single player stuff but surely there's more to gain by doing online classics.

Do the lobbies even stay up beyond a certain point?

I tried to fire up a new career of MyGM on 2K18 (the newer versions have been ruined by the addition of activity points for global scoring — why?!) and all the online content such as custom user jerseys, sponsors logos, and the like, have been taken down as the servers stopped serving the game a year ago.

Never really been a gamer but having kids got me into playing some stuff on their console like Prince of Persia and CoD Black Ops.

Couple of years ago I got Skyrim and played it solidly for a year. Great game made even greater by it's flaws.

Then got Witcher and wrapped it up in a few months. Just started AC Valhalla and enjoying that as a game too.

RDRII looks good but not sure the cowboy thing will keep me interested enough to finish it.

Someone mentioned the Yakuza games and they look like my cup of tea. Might need to cut back on the kids time allowance on the console so I can use it instead.

I love how they’re promoting this like it’s a revelation.

Playing RPG’s makes me feel like a big man, and not the skinny-fat middle-aged sack of wasted potential I’ve become.

Of course they’re going to exploit this by creating that world to immerse myself in.

🤷‍♀️
Your not a skinny-fat middle aged sack of wasted potential to me.

Hex Bendixsen can manipulate me any time she likes.
Followed her on Instagram only to get very annoyed there's more outdoorsy woman and dog content than there is video games/bikinis.

I remember when they turfed the other dude from the old Good Game show on ABC and I was outraged there was a diversity hire replacement but then nah no I was wrong, she's worth listening to.

Seriously, maybe it's either my self diagnosed mental illness or all the concussions, but how can people just... Grow out of things?

I mean I've given up on plenty but if an opportunity came up to do something that I have given up on already, I'd jump on that like Zak Butters attacking a lose footy against a bigger stronger opponent.

Yeah the American got the arse, or ass in his dialect.

They kept the one with the skinny fat gamer figure with middle aged woman thighs.

Bad Company 2 is definitely in my top online FPS pantheon.

BC2, COD4, CSS, TF2 and Halo 3 in any order

I got 20% through RDR2 and got insanely bored. It all just seemed to pointless after playing RDR1.

Currently playing Farcry 5 on and off but even then I get bored easily. I honestly find games like this just go on for too long and become repetitive.
