    General video games discussion thread

    Well, I just saw the Mass Effect discussion thread be active again and thought there could as well be a thread for discussing all kinds of video games, too

    So I made this thread and hope we can have some nice discussions, about what video games we play and maybe even help each other out on some questions, if we play the same games

    Well and to begin with it, today I started a new play through of Divinity Original Sin 2, which is a fantasy RPG with turn-based combat and played mostly in bird view perspective

    And what are you playing/liked to play/used to play?

    Well, I've been playing some Sekiro (going for all the achievements). Nearly finished with a third run since I need the third gauntlet of strength. It's ironic that Fromsoft's Souls game is considered their flagship franchise while their side games feel far superior (bloodborne and sekiro). It's not that I don't like the souls games. It's just that I do feel that their other projects are better.

    Also, recently finished Nier Automata. What a heart wrench. I hear people talk about the Last of Us (1 not 2, 2's not even a contender) for being emotional. I was just frowning in 1. Nier had me choking.

      Sekiro is one of the games I wanted to get, too but I'll be waiting still until I maybe can get my hands on a PS5. I played all three of the Dark Souls series, as well as Bloodborne and hope to get the Demon's Souls remake once I have said PS5
      One game I also played, which is similar in play style to Dark Souls is Mortal Shell, it's a rather short game and it's easy to see where the developers took inspiration from but it also adds pretty nice unique elements

      I played the Las of Us I only, was OK, but I don't know why people hype it so much for the story and all. Can't say anything about Nier though as I have not played that

        I have an entire Xbox collection -- all consoles except for the last one (too expensive) -- so I mostly play Xbox games.

        I'm a big fan of the Lego games. Looking forward to getting the The Skywalker Saga this year. The Harry Potter collection is a lot of fun too, as is the Avengers game.

        I am a huge, huge, huge fan of the Halo franchise, except the last installment, Halo 5. They took out offline co-op in favor of online co-op and better visuals, which for a lot of players is a damn shame cause playing co-op is one of the things I love most about the games.

        First run through the games would be with my sister, yelling at the screen and each other and laughing our butts off when things don't go quite as we expect them to go.

        Halo 5 didn't have that and it wasn't as much fun so I'm absolutely hoping they put co-op back but I doubt it. The majority plays online anyway and offline couch-play is negligible -- another shame for me.

        Anywho ... I'm not picky about which games I play. FPS, racing, RPG...

        Nor what console I play them on, cause I also have a Wii and a Nintendo DS.

        Also, the basic Microsoft card games are my thing.

          Well, that is a nice line up of consoles for sure. Used to have a xbox360 but now only have a PS4 as it had exclusives that were more my taste

          But I did like Fable 3 which as far as I know was a xbox exclusive, was it?
