Hooked on Animal Crossing: New Leaf. You play as a kid who is mayor of a town populated with cute talking animals.... It makes sense in the game. Anyway, I love it because it's relaxing, cute, and interactive as heck. The NPCs are very well developed, and I actually feel attachment to the characters.

Tom Nook is still the same sweet talking Tanooki who always seems to own you with massive debt. You can upgrade your house for a "paltry" sum of hundreds thousands of bells (in game currency). Pay him off and he tempts you to upgrade again and again, with larger loans each time, but after the first upgrade you don't need to agree to him.

It's also fun managing the town, doing public works projects, ordinances, etc. So much to do, so much time, so many characters and multiplayer for more awesome.

Fun game.

I hope Dayz comes out for PS4 soon.  Right now I'm playing Witcher 3, which I got during Black Friday for cheap.

I spent a not insignificant portion of my College Career playing Skyrim.
For RTS's, I loved Age of Mythology. Tickled all my fancies.

Recently, I have gotten hooked on Baldur's Gate Style games:
Divinity: Original Sin
Pillars of Eternity

These games are super hard and really make me sweat my way to victory.

Classics that I still bust out:
KOTOR 2
Dragon Age Origins
Any Total War Game

My Recent sleeper pick was this game called "The Banner Saga." Got it for .97 cents on Steam. 24 hours of pure storytelling and good gameplay.

Oh man those are some great games! Have you tried the Enhanced Edition of Baldur's Gate? A new expansion is coming out this year? Looks like Planescape Torment is getting a sequel too.

Divinity: Original Sin is a great game, runs pretty well of PS4 and I ended up with a review copy. KOTR is great too, recently I played some Witcher 3 and Fallout 4

Taking a break from RPGs right now and tackling The Division.

I was just about to ask if anybody's playing The Division yet.  I'm tempted (20% off via Amazon Prime- I don't have GCU), but still it's damned expensive.

Civ 5 is my favorite game right now, and in the top 3 of all time for sure. I've probably logged over 750 hours on it, although that's nothing compared to what some of the more serious players do. Right now I'm trying to work my way up to beating deity (the highest level I can consistently beat is king, and I've beaten emporer a few times.)

Also, Europa Universalis IV is another good one, but the games take weeks for me to finish and ain't nobody got time for that.

A game I played recently called Journey is really interesting. It's not a typical game in that you aren't trying to get points or anything, but it has beautiful graphics and is just a really cool concept.

Picked up Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright. Liking it so far. I enjoy being able to grind my characters up, so I wanted to start with Birthright and do Conquest second. Hard Casual, no soft resets for me, unless I fail to recruit a character or something like that.

I thought about getting it, but I want to play Conquest. This game kinda seems to have a little East vs. West thing goong on and I kinda like that. That is, until I heard you had to *stop* your King from doing his thing if you play Nohr. What if I *wanted* to be the big bad Western kingdom? :(

My roommate got Conquest, he says the king is such an a-hole that you can't wait to stop him. That being said, I see your point. That's what I liked about the Fable series.

The Fable series was great for this, but I wish there were a few more morally grey options.  Most of the choices in that game are pretty clearly good or evil, and having the little morality point thing pop up over your head immediately after a decision took away all the uncertainty.  The very first big decision you make early on in the third game blew me away, but the rest of the game was pretty standard kill someone or show mercy, enslave someone or set them free, etc.  It would make the game's pureness trait a little more complicated and would be harder to come up with meaningful events, but I'd love to see more scenarios where decsions aren't so clear cut.

For those who have played through the Uncharted series, should I just play 2 & 3?  I have 1-3 collection that came with my PS4 but I'm thinking about skipping 1 only because people said some of the play mechanics aren't as good on the PS4 (or something like that).  Is it worthwhile to play 1 or should I skip to 2, which I understand is when Uncharted really broke out.

On a similar note, would anyone recommend the Uncharted series for someone who is absolutely loving The Last of Us right now?  I am mostly enjoying the story, but the mechanics are fun too.  Being made by the same folks, is Uncharted similar?

I have Uncharted 3 that came with my PS3. I never played 1 or 2 and enjoyed it on it's own. Never finished. Then got The Last of Us and finished that like gangbusters. Much more engaging game and story for me. However, it made me want to go to back to U3, still couldn't get that much into it though.

I just started Farcry 3 and am really enjoying it, especially the stealthy aspects with my trusty sniper rifle.

I forget if I have already posted to this thread in the past - probably.

I play WoW on an intermittently active basis.  Currently I am on hiatus, because my guild beat the last raid on heroic level and has no interest in mythics.  We will start up again for Legion in a few months. 

I play Sims 4 occasionally - I find it kind of meditative.  My life can be shitty but at least my Sim's career is going well.  :P

I also have been playing Fallout 4, but I got bored with it pretty quickly. 

I am looking forward to No Man's Sky this summer.  It sounds really immersive and interesting.

Fire Emblem is where it's at. Currently on birthright. Definitely gonna buy conquest and the 3rd path. I'll avoid the other dlc as much as possible.

Those Simites are so unmustachian, they take 3 hour showers!

I love the sim speak though. I lowers my murder index.

I am definitely interested in VR, but no way I'm dropping that much coin, especially not new tech. I like buying used gaming systems if at all possible and definitely after it's been out for a while. The Microsoft Halolens thingamagig seemed REALLY cool though. I had seen a Youtube video and they demonstrated it with Minecraft, it was like woah!

Played Destiny on XB1 for a little over a year pretty regularly, but got a bit burned out on it.  Now I play Halo 5 here and there with a group of old high school friends online, it's a good way for us to chat.  Also picked up a used 3DS and a few Pokémon games after I helped my girlfriend's 7 year old cousin with his game a few weeks back.  Now that's something he and I can play together, and a few of my other friends have hopped on the Pokémon train too.

A couple of years ago I did gamefly for about 6 months, it was a great way to play a lot of the fun games I'd never want to buy.  Assassin's Creed, Arkham whatever the suffix is this time, and other random games that are fun for a week or two then you never touch again.  I'm considering starting it up again and working my way through the backlog.

Assassin's Creed could be such an amazing series (amazing environments, kill mechanics, etc.) but the problem is it's the same damn game over and over.  Eavesdrop here, climb to the top of here, infiltrate here, now repeat 10x in every city and game over.  And the worst one of all -- follow this dude while he yaps for 15 minutes about something no one cares about.  Let me go assassinate someone already!

I caved and bought The Division. I am just shy of the 5 hour mark and I am incredibly entertained.  I have never spent this much on a game before and I rarely spend much time gaming, but I actually think it was worth it.

Not a bad deal.

I've been playing through Diablo 3 again on hardcore mode with a buddy. Definitely changes the way you play when you only have the 1 life.

It's a GOOD game!!   I ended up buying it and have been very happy with it.

I recently bought the PS1 version of Final Fantasy VI on PS3.  It's my fiancé’s favourite video game, but it's my first time playing through.

Kefka, the main bad guy, is horrifyingly evil.  So far he's poisoned the water to an entire town, was perfectly okay with enslaving one of the main characters to do his bidding and slaughtered countless innocent people.  I keep looking at my partner while we're playing and saying "did he seriously just do that?!" and my partner is just laughing.

I actually prefer NV to Fallout 3, though both are awesome. Which faction are you going to go with, if any? Ave. True to Caesar.

Now that I've had NV for this long I FAR prefer it to FO3. First play through was for Caesar, then NCR, now it's going to be House. However, I am playing all the DLC first. I am on the last one Dead Money. Really, really fun game. Made me miss the desert really badly too. I love the Mojave.

Endless Legend -- picked it up mostly on sale when they released the newest expansion (though it was still $30).  It has a steep learning curve, despite or perhaps because of the strong resemblance to Civ V. The uniqueness of each faction and the abbreviated (compared to say Galactic Civilizations) but powerful unit design feature really has me enthralled though. 

For instance, if you like building "tall" rather than "wide" in Civ, you might like the Cultists faction, who are only allowed to have one city, but the city gets massive bonuses to food, industry, science, gold (called "dust" in the game) and influence (diplomatic currency).  Using the city as a base you go around laying waste to the other factions' cities and converting unaffiliated villages to your doomsday cult.  I never really liked conquest in Civ V because I always felt like I had enough to do peacefully developing my cities, but the Cultists in Endless Legend have freed me to pursue global genocide.

I didn't care for it much, but I get the appeal. Just felt too different from the franchise to me.

It's very old school FF - fixed 'classes' rather than almost completely freeform. Apparently the new version allows faster battling; I did buy a copy a while back on PSN, I'd forgotten how long random battles take. So I'm tempted to give it a go.

Plus it seems that Perk now allows exchanging points for Steam gift cards, so I can get credit for 'free' (not really free but close... just takes time).

If anyone is a fan of the Telltale "Point and Click" style of games, Humble Bundle has a great package of them available this week.  You can choose how much to pay, but they have games like The Wolf Among Us, Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Tales from the Borderlands, etc.  $12 gets you the entire package.  A lot of these games sell for $20+ individually, so this can be pretty economical.

Funny, I bought Divinity Original Sin and Baldur's Gate (and Age of Decadence) recently and have put down both for other games as well. Maybe I don't like these types of games as much as I thought, even though Fallout 1 and 2 are two of my all-time favorites.

Looking forward to Witcher 3: Blood and Wine.

If you're a Baldur's Gate fan, check out Pillars of Eternity that came out recently. It's pretty much the same thing with better graphics, a great story line, and good mechanics. I loved it.

Facepunch time, Steam released Final Fantasy IX yesterday and I bought it, being my favourite Final Fantasy

This does deserve a facepunch.... FFIX was awful  :P

I didn't care for it much, but I get the appeal. Just felt too different from the franchise to me.

You sir are insane, FF9 is the best one - how is it a departure?

Finished Witcher 3, going to start on Uncharted.  Still deciding if I should play the 1st one or just skip it.

Let me know if you end up trying the first! I got the Uncharted collection for Christmas. Haven't started it yet, but I've been pondering the same thing.

I started game 1.  It's pretty... meh.  It's very linear in terms of the environment, similar to the old Tomb Raiders.  The guns are also a little odd, for instance, it seems like the 9mm pistol takes less shots to kill someone than the AK-47.  It's a good time killer if you want to stretch the game out but so far I would say it's one you can skip.

Just finished the Donkey Kong Country trilogy on SNES for the millionth time.

Never gets old.

Just started messing around with Stardew Valley the other day. I can see why it's getting such positive reviews. Very similar appeal to Animal Crossing/Harvest Moon, but subtly different enough to feel fresh and engaging (or maybe it's just that I haven't played those games for years). I could see getting a good 30-40 hours out of this (maybe more, depending on just how deep it is), and yet it's a great pick up and play game, which is perfect, as I rarely have more than an hour or two to spare for gaming these days. A bargain at the full $15 price, IMO.
