War Thunder - ground forces only. Not sure how someone's supposed to play all the tanks, planes, ships and helicopters in the game! I got a premium account (half price!) to research upgrades and unlock new vehicles faster. I'm currently rolling with late WW2 to early cold war vehicles from the USA, Germany, USSR, Britain and Japan. One skill I must improve is aiming rockets from attack planes. My hit rate must be something like 1% :(

Picked up Wolfenstein 2 and Doom.

They're two very similar yet distinctively different games. As someone whose never played a lot of FPS games outside of Call of Duty and Battlefield, I am not too accustomed to running and gunning. Both games emphasis movement quite intensely. I am used to staying in cover a little bit but there is no room for that in either of these games.

Finding Doom a lot more fun and free. It's lighter and invites conflict. There's no real story of cutscenes either, just 90% killing demons.

Wolfenstein though has a lot more going but that I feel is almost at odds with the pace of the gameplay. There is a story here, and themes, and characters, and inviting environments. But the gameplay is such a rush, and the shooting has such a piercing quality to it, that I find myself more bored than I should be whenever I'm not duel-wielding machine guns and slaughtering Nazis.

Enjoying them.

Currently playing:

Resident Evil 2 (PC)
Red Dead Redemption (PS4)
Crackdown 3 (PC)

Running through my second run on Resident Evil 2. It's a legitimate game of the year candidate. Into the second chapter of RDR2. I felt it started really slowly. The production values are outstanding but it almost feels as though they have stripped out a lot of the fun. I'm also wondering whether I should've waited for the PC version because performance on my non-pro PS4 is pretty ordinary. Finally, Crackdown 3 has received a lot of flack but I'm finding it a great game to have some mindless fun for 15 - 30 minutes at a time.

This is me with Skyrim, I've played other games as well but after creating 4 billion different characters I think I'm finally ready to finish the main storyline and then put it aside.
I get stuck on the GTA Missions. I’m at the point where I’m 60% through it and missions are not easy to find.

Just picked up Metro Exodus, so currently playing that.

Recently started up Witcher 3 again, still get on RDR2 to continue my second playthrough. RE:2 also gets a run every now and then.

Once I’m done with Metro, I’m hoping to grab AC:Odyssey, been itching to get into that game!!

How on earth do you play so many games at once? I would just end up losing interest in some of them.

Has to be one single player (and a multiplayer) at a time for me.

I'm currently switching between Okami HD and Apex Legends.

Time is limited for me with gaming these days so I just swap between games I enjoy playing. I’ll most likely just get stuck into Metro Exodus and play that until I finish, but RDR2 and the Witcher 3 are such good games I love just messing about in those worlds.

Just picked up Skyrim again and started modding it. I’ve finally found a good mix of mods that improve the game but don’t cause a crash every ten seconds.
