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.
