I find it interesting I can game all night on this old system with a 19" display and have as much fun as I do on my modern system. The nostalgia factor for sure fuels part of it. The voice acting is surprisingly entertaining also. My geforce3 is struggling though a bit though with Unreal II so I might need to slap a Geforce4 on this pc... I have a Leadtek ti4200 and a few other options to move up to.I enjoyed Unreal II quite a bit. But then, I usually do enjoy games that the majority aren't too fond of, as long as they aren't objectively broken.
I think I played that on a Ti4600, so that 4200 should do quite well.I find it interesting I can game all night on this old system with a 19" display and have as much fun as I do on my modern system.

Haven't played the others but Dead cells is excellent. If you're in the mood for a challenging and fast paced platformer, dead cells is great.Apex Legends and finally finishing RDR2.
I want to buy a new game on Steam, what should I get?
Monster Hunter World
I thought it was pretty cool, Far Cry 4 is a lot better though.I'm almost embarassed to admit it, but I'm really enjoying Farcry 5 thus far....
The story is retarded, but the open-world nature of the game is pretty sweet.
The first time I saw a bear legit get into the mix, I was like "Ohhhhhhhhhh".bears n shit is a riot!
Subnautica? Well, until you reach the depths.The first time I saw a bear legit get into the mix, I was like "Ohhhhhhhhhh".
Bear is straight handin' out naps as I'm siccing my dog on him etc. Awesome craziness!!
EDIT: Besides that game, I hope to squeeze in some Apex Legends.
Also, anyone know of a good "chill" game? As in - relaxing / easy going....
I like No Man's Sky, Terraria, for a relaxing pace. (Subnautica as well as Revenant mentioned, though I've played it a lot less than NMS.) However, there are other kinds of games that couldn't be described as relaxing that actually put me in kind of a zen state. Dead Cells being one of them. It's technical, and can get very hectic, (and some of the bosses are pretty maddening) however, for some reason the actual game-play loop makes me completely zone out and lose hours. The controls become transparent, and even when dying and picking up again, it's deceptively relaxing. Hard to describe really, because there are other similar styles of games that just don't put me in that state even though they're a similar formula. I guess the closest ones that still do this despite getting nuts at times would be Hyper Light Drifter, and maybe Sundered. Other action platform exploring games tend to hype me up more than zen me out.Also, anyone know of a good "chill" game? As in - relaxing / easy going....
In many ways you can compare the two. There is an abundance of weaponry, and even with some of the procedural generation there is enough familiarity to each location that it's a coherent experience per location. You don't backtrack in the same sense of Metroid or Castlevania. However, once you unlock a weapon, skill, tool, etc. you keep it. It's rogue-lite-ish in that when you die you start at the beginning. However, as you gain more skills, you are able to bypass, or choose which routes you want to take through the world. Each level changes up slightly when this happens, but it's also enough the same that you can play it in basically the same way. I'm not a huge rogue fan, and this game doesn't make me feel like I'm playing that sort of game. It's very much like playing a classic side-scroller (like Metroid, Castlevania, etc.) but with more variety, deeper systems, but very much fun to play. It's also challenging, but never to the point where you're not ok with it. It feels like you earn progress, or failures, based on your own skills. I've sunken probably 60 hours into it, because it's quite replayable, there's always something new to find, secrets, new items, and each run is fresh. It doesn't feel too repetitive like a lot of games can if they have any degree of procedural work going on. It's cohesive. While it's not a pure Castlevania, you'll still feel like you're playing that style of game. The darker themes are also really nice. The world pulls you in.Is it fair to compare Dead Cells to SotN? (or is that blasphemous)
- Damned if I don't wanna train that bear to befriend me in Farcry 5, but I don't have the time for that level of shenanigans most days....
