Forumites What games do you play besides TW?

edited October 11 in Off Topic General
On Computer I only play mostly TW now, honestly, I ran out of things to play there months ago.

So I went back to oldies that I still enjoy to this day.

DoW1- To me the best dawn of war ever out of the three, I hope SEGA would make a remake of this classic.
Company Of Heroes 2- Unbalanced mess now but used to enjoy it.
Age OF Wonders 3- Enjoy it way more than the latest installment AofW:Planetfall...
Mushroom Wars 2- For quick simple multi-player matches.
Total War Rome 2-Little here and there
Total War Attila- Still play it I find it very challenging, if you want a challenging campaign with no AI cheating Play normal Western Roman Empire.
Infested Planet is- Very fun indie game that reminds me of Starship troopers.
Dark Deity- Turn-based strategy clone of old school Gameboy Fire Emblem.
They Are Billions- Steampunk Survival RTS is not bad but not great.

Before really enjoyed
Advance Wars 1-2 and Dual Strike is my favorite game of all time.
Horizon Dawn
Battlefield 1
Xcom1 and Xcom2.
Dragon Dogma( where the hell is my sequel???)


For you that want to play something different

Age of Darkness: Last Stand- Survival RTS New game early access, They Are Billions Clone set in Medieval age. not worth it much now, surviving things get very old very fast. but holds promise.
Starship trooper: Terran Command- RTS, this is a free demo if you want to play, like it soo far.

These are my go-to games at the moment, not including PS games. I don't play as much as i do few hours a day, I do have other hobbies BJJ, Gardening, Reading and trying to improve my writing and learning another language. Investing and Learning about Passive income is also something I am really into since they exploit me at work....

    Not much TBH.

    Assassins' Creed Odyssey, Skyrim, a game that I bet almost no one here would be into (Pro evolution called e-football now).

    Will be playing the new Age of Empires and debating if I should get human kind. My main issue with those games is while I like the campaign mechanics I actively don't care for the combat after playing TW for the past two decades.

    Just finished Deathloop.
    I found it good and bad at the same time. Somehow i overall enjoyed it even though the actual gameplay/gunplay got stale extremely fast + the game was waaaaaaaay too easy.
    But I really liked the tone/style/theme and somewhat also the story of the game.

    Onwards to Riftbreaker in a couple of days and got my future eyes on EverSpace 2.

    Also of anyone likes singleplayer rogue like deckbuilder games akin to Slay The Spire,then give Monster Train a go. Was a huge hit for me.

    I have stuff on my wish list that has gone on sale several times but I don’t buy anything. Last game I played that wasn’t TWW2 was Cyberpunk and I stopped playing that when I finished it in Febuary or March. I don’t really play games that much these days. Going to have a look at Darktide when that releases but while I enjoyed Vermintide I don’t see myself having enough interest and time to sink into it.

    I’ll play TWW3 and that’s pretty much it. But seeing how much time I plowed into TWW2 in the first two years I imagine I’ll at the bare minimum be having my first months after release covered.

    But really I don’t feel games are as fun as they used to be.

    Hmm, currently
    • Stellaris
    • Star Trek Online
    • Gems of War
    • trying to dive back into Star Wars The Old republic (addon in December)
    • Got a Star Wars Rogue Squadrons recently from the free Amazon Prime gaming and want to give it a spin.
    • This weekend is free Phoenix Point, and since the devs are on my sh*tlist for being EGSclusive sellouts, at least a good way to test the game and decide how low on future sale prices I might go.
    I just let myself flow to whatever interests me. Or what new game I can pick up in a sale from a growing wishlist. End of next month the Black Friday sale hopefully might be useful. or mabye even this months Halloween sale.

    I play a lot of Apex Legends.

    It's a fun casual game where I can just click heads and talk trash. I'm also in the Goldilocks zone of skill. Good enough to drag few teams down, not too good to carry every game.

    Funny that someone that likes Skaven has a PC that will probably die each time he sees them on a battle.

    Any game that I want to experience as long as the price falls within my annual budget for video games. Over the years I have become very demanding when it comes to playing video games, I play the best of the best, and always looking for the most diverse experiences.

    That seems like a weird point of view, a game doesn't need to be the best of the best for you to enjoy it, heck, I have enjoyed Cyberpunk and Mass Effect Andromeda even with all their problems, maybe I'm the weird one.

    I assumed so.

    I enjoyed the Island one till the ending kinda sucked.

    I've been massively disappointed by Cyberpunk and I still enjoyed it.

    My recurrent go-to's are Stellaris and TF2, but I play a good deal of classic RTS, Souls and Soulslikes, Metroidvanias, 3D platformers and stealth titles predominantly. Other than that my tastes are far to eclectic to really pin down, for example: Overlord is one of my favorite games of all time yet it doesn't fit in any of the above categories. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    Tomes read: The Great Betrayal, Master of Dragons, Curse of the Phoenix Crown, Trollslayer, Skavenslayer, Daemonslayer, Dragonslayer, Beastslayer, Vampireslayer, Malekith, The Bloody Handed, Shadow King

    I simply tossed aside any previous expectations and once you do that is a good game, not the best, but it's good, it's when you compare it with what was promised that it becomes bad.

    It also helps that it was gifted to me so it didn't felt like I had wasted my money or anything like that.

    My current rotation of games would be:

    AoE2 DE
    Fire Emblem Echoes
    Vermintide 2
    Dead by Daylight(I'm gonna abandon this one, however)
    Victoria 2 (searching for a new mod to try out)

    Alongside TWW, of course.

    I have considered playing one of the UFO After____ series games. Either Afterlight or Aftershock. Probably Aftershock, it's the only one I haven't fully completed yet(due to running into a bug that makes the game unwinnable).

    Or maybe Dawn of War. Discussion on here awoke old desires.
