I am currently stuck in a Morrowind rabbit hole. This game alongside with OSRS molded my childhood like no other game, event though I never managed to finish it or progress further than a few quests. But the atmosphere and vibe of this game is unmatched.
I am no gamer in any sense at all, I am just a huge nerd that likes open world RPGs, and this game is a gem when it comes to roleplaying.

last of us part 2 on Grounded+
the no return mode is super addicting.

Also starting Super Mario RPG. Never played it on the SNES

One of the best games, worth it for the soundtrack alone, but DKC2 is even better in my mind

Finished FF7 Remake over the weekend, didn't bother with hard mode or the Yuffie DLC.

Replaying Shovel Knight for something lower stakes and easy to put down.

In terms of FPS, Apex Legends is my main game and has been for a couple years now. Pretty excited about the changes coming to season 20 tomorrow. Hoping for good balance across the board.

Been really getting in to DayZ again after kind of falling out of it for a bit. I would play it, but just did not have the drive to really try and have an adventure. But it's nice to escape into that world again and feel fully immersed.

Lastly, thinking about grabbing the last of us pt II remaster for PS5, it's only $10 for those who own the previous version. Anyone picked that up yet? Worth it for the extra stuff / graphical upgrades?

I played it on the ps4 and enjoyed it a lot.
I just platinum'd it on the ps5 grounded+ mode and enjoyed that a ton. The patience needed, how the controls just click, and the visuals made it a great 2nd playthrough.
The no return mode is definitely worth the $10 alone and I hope they keep adding it it.

The hate this game got for the story is still so clowning to me.

Spent the last few days playing the new Yakuza game Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth and man I'm hooked bad, can't put it down
I've been playing this too, and it's definitely growing on me. I've been so used to free combat though, that the turn based system took me by surprise (not having any experience with previous games in the series).

Also been playing Death Stranding after seeing the trailer for the sequel and being blown away by it.

 You and the D00D have turned this thread into a horrible head-on-collision between a short bus full of regular kids and a van full of paraplegics.

Oh nice, you never played Like a Dragon, though? Can't imagine trying to follow this story without playing a few of these already. All the games were brawlers until the last main installment when they switched to turn-based JRPG. I like both styles personally but prefer the turn-based.

Death Stranding is divisive but man I loved it. Can't wait for the new one, looks bonkers

Yeah, until last spring I hadn't seriously played video games since high school. The last console I owned was a PS2.

Oh shit. Well on the bright side there's a ton of modern classics you can go play that are heavily discounted at this point and heavily patched/supported

Death Stranding here too. It was free on Epic maybe a year ago or something, and I just got the nerves to install and play it. Super relaxing and stressful at the same time. I just spent an hour crawling through the mountain with my BB crying and those things around me. And once I crossed the peak, the rain stopped, beautiful music kicked in and It was the most surreal thing. Love this game, just like all Kojima games before.

Playing Baulder's Gate online with some friends, it's all of our first time playing it so we want to experience the whole game and finish it together before we do solo play throughs. Only bummer is it's really hard to get all 4 of us online at the same time, especially considering one friend lives in Hawaii, so on top of busy schedules we have to work around a 4 hour time difference. At the rate we're going we'll hopefully complete the game by, I dunno...December.
If only three of us can be online we'll switch to Deep Rock Galactic which I'm really starting to like.

Pacific Drive comes out tomorrow. I imagine I'll be playing the fuck out of that this weekend.
Just gotta decide if I want it on PC or PS5.

Found Bioshock Remastered on PlayStation store for like $8 after tax. Couldn't pass it up. I hope the rumors of a new Bioshock installment are true.

On the fence about buying the 2nd FF7Remake right now. Iím getting a vibe thatís itís the type of AAA game thatís really good but people wonít admit that parts of it absolutely suck until 6 months later.

I felt the same way, the base game with materia combinations and skills is fun and rewarding, but the pacing and voice acting killed the momentum and I skipped 80% of them at the end. Some mini games like the box smashing, squats, pull up ones were fun, those actually tested your skills and were a fun break from the main game. It was the faux mini games like moving the crane hands, getting Red XIII to wall run to pull switches and timing button presses to unlock doors felt like unnecessary gamification.

Grinding, while unnecessary was fun because of the different character builds possible with different weapons and materia combinations. Yeah you were killing trash mobs, but you were also testing out different play styles though I mostly defaulted to raw damage.

I'd rate the first game a 6.5 out 10, higher if they improved the pacing. Almost started the Yuffie DLC but the thought of more cut scenes and voice acting turned me off it.

I think part 2 will be more the same with deeper mechanics (affinity, folios) and unavoidable mini game sections. Would pick it up when it goes on sale and prioritize other games.
