    Resident Evil 2 and Hitman 2. Might give Subnautica Below Zero a try, but don't want to put too much time into it while in early access.

    I just finished DOOM 3 the other day. I have a bunch of sweet gifs/videos and was going to write a big long post reviewing it in retrospect as its 15 year anniversary is coming up and I never played it when it came out, this was also including the new "DOOM 3 Redux + sikk mod". However I'm busy with work and I doubt anyone wants to discuss DOOM 3 anyway.

    I think Ive settled on giving Witcher: Enhanced edition a serious shot, but man the game is ugly as shit and the combat looks retarded. Also I immediately have to troubleshoot the fact that cut scenes arent working. If it frustrates me too much I'm gonna switch to beating Baldurs Gate II. Yes Im know 20 something years too late.

    Doom 3, nice! I play through it maybe every other year or so. It’s one of my favorite games.

    There's a few classic games I want to dig into. I never played much of the original Baldur's gate. I had it but never really put time into it. I did play through Dark Alliance on the conosles.
    I might get Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition a start soon.

    This weekend will likely be jumping between FFXIV, Far Cry 5 and Resident Evil 2: Remake.

    Monster Hunter World (PC) and I'm also going to try out the Devil May Cry 5 demo on the PS4.

    Might give Resident Evil 2 a go if I can find an AMD code for cheap otherwise I'll continue waiting until the game hits the $20-30 range.

    I think I'll try out Apex Legends if it runs alright on my machine cuz my specs are just barely above the min requirements... Maybe someone already tried it out? Is it well optimized? Otherwise it's gonn be Overwatch and Destiny

    Still playing Monster Boy right now, but we're supposed to be having one of our "blizzards" here in Seattle :D over the next few days, and I expect I might have a 3.5-4 day weekend. Even though my backlog is somewhat healthy right now, I may pick up a JRPG for the Switch, and get sucked into that for the weekend. I haven't tried Octopath Traveler yet. I'm not as into these anymore, but since I recently did a Chrono Trigger play-through, I'm kind of in the mood for something like this.

    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. :D

    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 think I played that on a Ti4600, so that 4200 should do quite well.

    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.

    +1 for Monster Hunter World in my opinion. Was my personal GOTY for 2018 and I still play it a year later.

    I'll probably pick up Dead Cells and MHW. I haven't played any of the MH games and I'm eager to try it.

    I'm also tempted by MWH. Post your thoughts on it for sure.

    I’ve been playing Dead Cells in large bursts since early access. Excellent game. Prey is great too, but honestly I put a lot more time into Dead Cells.

    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".

    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....

    Been reading about Cavemen, so been playing Farcry Primal the past week or so. Also been getting into The Division. (Had it for a while, but just now having fun with it) May do a little Neverwinter, Age of Conan MMO's but it depends on what I have going on.

    Nerds write the server technology backends that service games. "Gamer" or the more general "geek" (that is, tech user) is the more appropriate term.

    Just saying...

    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. :D
