What's your current/favorite game?

Recommended Posts

Due to a lack of time I don't play nearly as much as I'd like, but I'm a big fan of video games.  Everything from coin-op arcade games like Space Wars and Gauntlet back in the day to PC games like Doom or Quake to more recent MMORPGs like WoW and Skyrim, I've at least tried most everything - and played some a lot more than I probably should have.  :D Sandbox/simulation games are what I keep coming back to however.  I've played pretty much every version of Sim<anything> over the years, even SimEarth and SimAnt.  I used to be really into Minecraft back when it was still Mojang/Notch.  These days my current obsession is Kerbal Space Program (with the Kerbal Engineer and kOS mods).  Keeping an eye on No Man's Sky and Space Engineer for the future.

 

So what's your favorite and/or current video game?  What sort of games do you like?

At this moment, one of my favourite games is Elder Scrolls Online, it's incredibly detailed and has an extremely good gameplay and the story is interesting (even if I don't follow it much myself), but it's so far the best MMO I've ever played compared to Lord of the Rings Online and Star Wars the Old Republic... Yes, I am a legit MMO junkie.

I wish I had time for this kind of thing.  I used to be a big online gamer too, back in the day.  I even ran my own circlemud server for a while when I was in school.  ("MUDs" were multi-user dungeons.. the text-based precursor to today's MMORPGs.  If you've ever played Zork or Adventure, it's like that, only with other players online, and with much better combat and leveling systems.)  I enjoyed it then, and of course the "new" graphical games like ESO, WoW, etc. are awesome compared to that.  Unfortunately they take more time than I can really give them to play well.  The level grind is a killer for me.  I guess I could go for one of the pay-to-play games out there and/or buy a high-level character & equipment, but where's the fun in that?  :D

Not necessarily a pay-to-win game, for some like ESO are really immersive and the leveling is done pretty well, I can explore dungeons and areas and I level up along, much more fun when in a group.

I used to play a lot of call of duty and Xbox games when I was younger and I got tired of it after a while. One day I saw my uncle playing dota 2 and decided to try pc gaming. As I have a very shitty PC I couldn't run many things but one game I could run is wow. Wow is pretty much the only game I play right now. I've been playing a lot of legion and its a very fascinating experience. Its very different for me and I enjoy it a lot. I also used to play minecraft a lot and I still do a little bit

Changed my mind… my favorite game is Pokémon Mystery Dungeon explorers of sky. Again. It's the only game that has ever made me cry a bit, in my life.

Don't know if it has to be an MMO but my current game is Final Fantasy 9. Heard that it was amazing and from what I can see the game meets expectations.

I can't put a tab on my *favourite* game, but there are games I play more frequently than others. Currently I play both WoW and LoL online, and I'm junking out to AC: Black Flag currently. I have a habit of replaying the Dragon Age games quite a bit, mostly Origins. I could talk about Dragon Age universe all day, guys.

Can't really say what my favorite game is, but nowadays i play stuff like FPS, action/adventure and platformers. Really enjoy the Arkham games and Call of Duty. Don't play games for competition just for fun mostly.

There's a huge difference between my favorite game and my current favorite but for now I'll just mention what I've been playing recently: 

CrossCode - An indie ARPG game that's on Steam. It's single player but the story is really well done for an early-access game and so far I've gotten 20+ hours out of it and I've loved every second. Also the art style is pixelated but the combat and interactions are very smooth and pleasing to the eye. It's a little pricey at $19.99 (I got it on sale) but you'll get well over a dollar an hour of entertainment and it's still got lots up updates and additions to the story coming in the future. I'd look it up a bit first but to anyone who is a fan of games like this will surely fall in love with it. One last thing to note is that I've been playing it with a PS4 controller so I don't really know how the game feels if you're planning on playing with keyboard and mouse (some parts may actually work better with a mouse). Thanks for reading my promotion of this game I've been playing :3

My favorite game of all time is Okami HD. The story, graphics, and even the music are just stunning and gorgeous <3 I highly recommend this (y) if you like drawing and Asian culture. It also has a unique fighting system as well that is quite interesting and fun I think.

As for other games I pretty much like to try anything and like many other games as well. I play on PS4 , PC , And sometimes Nintendo 3Ds XL.

my favorite has to go to good old Team Fortress 2, the gameplay is always fun despite sticky spam and getting five spies on a twelve man team. though what it gets me with are its very memorable characters, playable or not. it supports a ton of playstyles to, from sweaty tryhard scout mains on badwater to friendly sandvich dispensing hoovies on 2fort.

I haven’t really played much of anything except for Sims 4 in the past year or so. Life is getting more stable though, and I might start playing some more things once we get a new place and have our shit a bit more figured out. Right now we’re just mostly focused on saving money and paying off some bills :)
