      I know there’s a subsection for this but my grandma gets more action than that forum.

      So with that out of the way, what is everyone playing these days, and on what platforms?

      I’ve got Forza 7 and COD:MW in rotation on the Xbox One. On PC Sold Over Sticker and I just finished Far Cry New Dawn. I also play BF:V on PC from time to time but not as much as the other games. It is gorgeous though.

      Thought it was great we were able to do the entire open world campaign in co-op online. In fact, I’d like to find more games that offer full co-op through the campaign, so if you guys have any recommendations I’d really appreciate it.

      Is she hot?

      I have nothing else to contribute, I had a Nintendo 64, but I gave it to my buddy so he could show his kids the games we used to play.

      Currently have a PS4; now concentrating on finishing the story mode of games.
      On rotation: MGS, GTA5, COD, Ace Combat, Red Dead Redemption, Sniper, FF7 Remake (demo), Witcher, Far Cry and Dishonored. Also still have the good old faithfull PSP for entertainment when I go shopping and have to stand in line outside waiting for my turn to shop.

      Red Dead Redemption 2 is my go-to when I can actually play for more than an hour. Damn game is so immersive.

      I bought a PS4 a couple years ago and I haven't found a game yet that I really could get into. I'm sure they're out there, just nothing has captured my imagination yet. Truth be told my last video game addiction was probably Project Gotham Racing 2 on the OG Xbox.

      Mostly I just play NES and SNES games on emulator anymore.

      I wouldn't care to guess how many hours I spent playing N64. Rogue Squadron and Mariokart 64 were perfect games.

      Starfox was also A+.

      Obviously Goldeneye was also a hoot, but I don't even think you have to say that anymore, it's just implied.

      I haven't played online in years. Maybe since COD3 or something. I just get too wrapped up and it takes too much time. Although watching some Warzone videos makes me want to do it again.

      I mainly stick to huge open world single player stuff like Elder Scrolls, GTA, and RDR, games I can play for months on end when I get some time.

      I only play GTA Sport on a rare occasion. Otherwise I occasionally play NES, the minion really enjoys it.

      Playing The Division 1 and 2, I wouldn't get the 2nd game unless it was on sale for less than $10. It's a train wreck right now.

      Just got into The Outer Worlds. Pretty cool. I like RPGs when their interspersed with action/shooting.

      Wreckfest is awesome. Lots of stupid fun.

      Mad Max is also really underrated.

      - Madden 20 for my sports fix

      I poured hours into that game on PS4. honestly, a great experience, so take your time (especially in Chapter 3).

      RDR2 probably my second fave game next to Oblivion. Skyrim probably third.

      Although I never actually finished the epilogue for RDR2. After the main story ended I kind of lost the will, and I know what happens. I should probably go back and do it, plus I have to hunt some more of the special animals (or whatever they were called) and catch a few more of the fish.

      Its... okay. Its pretty, but sometimes a little boring. I've had it since launch. Its gotten a lot better as they have done content patches and updates. Now you can do sandbox mode with base building, story mode, etc. So, in a way, its like adult minecraft. The VR addon is nice, even if using the jetpack is a little nauseating.

      If its on a good sale, may be worth checking out.

      I picked it up when it first came out and was very disappointed, but the updates they've done to the game (free at that!) have really improved it. My only issue with NMS is you have to be willing to set aside several hours to really get anything done on it -- it's not really a game you can pick up and play for just 30 minutes.

      probably one of my favorite games of all time

      epilogue is fun, theres still a few good story missions, then after things settle i sort of lost steam as well.


      i enjoy CoD when i have time to play, which isnt much lately, but if anyone is looking for target practice im inbredcowboys on xbox live (its an old name... apparently msft charges you money to change it?!)

      I'm still working full-time from home so my gaming has not increased. With that said, I've been exclusively playing GTA V Online on XBox since last summer and typically log on a few nights a week after the kids go to bed (after 9 PM EST). My screenname is CamperKillerX.

      One of my friends is begging me to try Witcher 3 so I will be giving that a go in the upcoming days.

      PS: RDR2 was great (finished it and RDR1) but did not care for RDR2 Online very much.

      Do you need to have played the first Witcher games in order to get the best out of Witcher 3? I hear that game is great.
