Oh I have. Currently i'm lvl50 and I think just getting to the end of disc1. Such fun.

Outside of that i've been just randomly scrounging games that i've played but never finished; Jeanne d'Arc, Skyrim and Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones (Ephraim's Route) comes to mind.



Just be warned: Disc 2 was (for me) where things went downhill. Disc 1 was very interesting on its own.

I finished Persona 5 without significant (months-long) pauses or breaks, which is remarkable for a game of its length. (For comparison, it took me about 3-4 years to finish Xenoblade Chronicles, will likely take that long to finish its sequel, and I like both games.) I would defend the story and its characters highly, even though I think it's about par for the course regarding depictions of women in JRPGs, for reasons I could discuss at length.

I've just started The Witcher III (on the PS4) and Dragon Quest VII (on the 3DS). I really liked The Witcher II for its story, but found the battle system fairly obtuse, so we'll see how that goes. I played about 20 hours into the Playstation version of (then) Dragon Warrior VII, but found it boring. Now that I've acclimated to the Dragon Quest sense of humor and charm, I'm hoping I can stick with it.

I've also been playing matches of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. I appreciate it mainly because it rewards hiding and stealth, about the only things I'm good at in a realistic shooter. Playing defensively, I can consistently make it halfway through the game.

I'm playing an actual MODERN game for once: Cosmic Star Heroine which I backed on Kickstarter long ago. My funds were well spent, it's pretty good so far. I believe Zeboyd (the developers) cited Victor Ireland as an inspiration for their humor, I know they spoke with him at E3 a year or two ago. Basically, think Phantasy Star with Lunar/Chrono Trigger Style humor, plus an original, but good turn based combat system.
Also getting back into Saiyuki on PS1, an SRPG set in old China with Buddhist themes, and some silly humor. It's only major flaws are the weak music (think Asian instruments but bad midi versions) and the optional characters don't say anything after they join (correct me if I'm wrong cause I'm have yet to finish) The latter is one of my pet peeves about SRPGs, thankfully there are 6 main characters that often talk.
And I have progressed a little on Luminous Arc 2 on DS (discussed at length earlier in this thread.)

I've picked up Animal Crossing again. Last fall I added another player character (I'd intended to make a new town but didn't realize I couldn't do that): Thalia. I'm thinking of making a third named Ohro. My town is named Lyton, by the way. Don't remember now why I didn't go with Saith or Lann, which would make more sense geographically. Oh well.

Also still occasionally looking for Koroks in Breath of the Wild. 620+ so far.

Recently got a hold of Fire Emblem Echoes, and it's really good considering I never played the original.

Plus i've been wasting time in between playing Fire Emblem Heroes as well. In the beginning I basically reset the game every time till I got an S tier unit, in this case Azura.

A month later, and I'm still playing all three games. The Witcher III is thoroughly enjoyable, but my do-all-sidequests behavior and a two-week honeymoon have meant I've only done the first few required quests while delving deep into optional content. I haven't even visited Triss yet! I also find the card-game-within-a-game (Gwent) a lot of fun, and reminiscent of the card game Condottiere.

I did play Dragon Quest VII while traveling, usually while riding trains or on the airplane. I find it a whole lot more accessible than before. Its redesign of the Shrine of Mysteries helps. (No more manually wandering from pedestal to pedestal with map fragments.) I'm at about 20 hours now, just got my first taste of the job system, and show no signs of stopping. :D

I'm fairly consistently a top-half survivor in PUBG. I can hold my own in early-game fighting. The rest seems to be meta and positioning; if I'm driving blind into a new zone where people have had ample time to find good shelters to protect their position, I'm going to have a bad time.

Been on a Fire Emblem binge playing FE: Blazing Sword while still playing Heroes every now and then, mostly to get orbs. I've been thinking of doing a Nuzlocke, or just a casual run, of Pokemon: Fire Red, maybe stream it over on Twitch if I feel like it.

I've been going full-on cyberpunk. I just finished a play-through of Shadowrun Returns, and I'm going to go onto the other two games in the series (Dragonfall and Hong Kong) pretty soon.

This is in addition to learning the rules of Shadowrun 5e itself, designing a Shadowrun campaign to GM in maybe a year, reading through the rest of William Gibson's sprawl trilogy (well, just re-read Count Zero and now I need to pick up Mona Lisa Overdrive), and watching the YouTube series Corporate SINS (a group out of Seattle broadcasting their really enjoyable SR5e campaign -- they just ended last week but I'm only on like episode 15 out of 90). KF

EDIT: Anyone pick up anything on the latest Steam sale?

That was also what I most disliked about that version.

Now i'm playing Tales of Bersia. Been wanting it since it came out. I'm only at the beginning, but it's alright. I never liked Zestria. I tried real hard to stick with it, but I just couldn't...

Currently I have open game files in: Bravely Second, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age, Lunar Silver Star Harmony, Star Ocean Second Evolution, Story of Seasons Trio of Towns, Ys Origins, and Ys Chronicles I + II.

I like to game, but I only really get too it after work these days if I’m lucky. Recently I picked up Ever Oasis and Tales of Berseria too; however I’m not going to start them until I beat something from the above list. -__-

Can't blame you for that. Zestiria had one of the most dull cast of characters in the history of the franchise.

I've been playing two games/series recently: the rest of the Shadowrun trilogy (Shadowrun Returns, Shadowrun Dragonfall, and Shadowrun Hong Kong -- currently on Dragonfall), and Tangledeep.

Tangledeep's a game that was just released by one of my friends from the OCR community, zircon / Andrew Aversa. It's in its alpha stage right now (still doing patches, bug fixes, and updates, before it's ready for prime time). But it's still really fun. It's a turn-based roguelike that has a pretty smooth feel to it -- I think folks are comparing it to Crypt of the Necrodancer but turn-based instead of beat-based -- and plenty of job classes, skills, items, random events, and other neat stuff to keep it interesting. Difficulty is challenging though.

That game was so awful it turned me off of the real game of baseball for life.

BUT THAT'S OK I DISCOVERED CRICKET INSTEAD.

No but really, RBI Baseball was miserable. You always had to run halfway across the field to catch a fly ball, but somehow whenever you hit anything the computer player was right underneath the ball waiting to catch you out. WTF!? KF
