Rocket League! Waiting for Dark Souls 3 to go on sale. Reverting back to FFXI before they shut it down for good.

Don't wait! Just get Dark Souls 3. I'm nearly at the end of my first playthrough and I'm already thinking about the next.

Insurgency! Love it, especially co-op mode. Great tactical shooter, bit more 'realistic' in style (No cross hair, no HP's)

Brutal Doom's Hell On Earth levels are fun, even if they remind me of the Red Faction "Return To Earth" levels :)

Chyeah, I just wish modes were named/explained a bit clearer.

@Willybomb, GTA V is a blast but I feel like the story and multiplayer implementation could've been tightened up. Great with friends though!

My nephew plays it non stop online pretty much.  I played GTA3 to death though but I think my tastes have changed.

I installed Call of Juarez: Gunslinger today, the commentary and story are fairly entertaining.  Tried Dark Souls II, couldn't get into it.

Confirmed video game slut er... enthusiast here. Since I can remember I always had something to play. My first was a big ole' grey Gameboy brick with Kirby's Dream Land. I remember my mom shut it off (it was bedtime) by unplugging the power adapter and I completely lost my mind. Tantrum at the heat level of 1,000 suns. I'll never let my mother live that down, EVER. That game is f'n hard.

Today I'm all about the PC. I absolutely love consoles and handhelds (definitely not jealous of Juan's stash, definitely not. Not one bit... dammit) but having a powerful PC gives me everything to at least play. I can emulate Wii and Gamecube through Dolphin, emulate N64* through either Project64 or Mupen64, GBA, GBC, SNES, NES, PSone, Dreamcast, and finally a few Nintendo DS games. It's nice to HDMI my PC display to my TV and play nearly any older game I want during parties and whatnot.

*Funny how it's been over 20 (!) years and not one single piece of software can TRULY emulate the Nintendo 64 properly. I know the reasons but it's a bit silly that I can sync Wii peripherals via bluetooth and play Wii games flawlessly on my PC, yet we still can't find a way to fix the f_ckin' graphics on Pilotwings 64. Insanity, dread, etc... I have it on console so it's all good.

On PC, my main girl, this is what's up -

Alien: Isolation - This is a must play. It pays homage, looks gorgeous, its difficult, scary, and paranoid. I genuinely love this game and want to hug it. I wish I could actually hug the game. It jumped very quickly to my top 5 favorite games ever. Play. It. Now. 10/10. Masochist's dream (nightmare?).

Fallout - I'm gonna get reamed for this one. I love RPGs, especially Action RPGs, but for the life of me I can't get into these games. Tried many times. No need to convince me, it's not gonna happen. Yawn.

Mass Effect - Needs no introduction. I've beaten the series so many times and I will continue to lose a social life because of this series. Can't wait for the new one! Probably my favorite franchise ever.

Hitman - This series will always be with me. I really enjoy beating a level, restarting it, and beating it in completely different ways. Played 'em all, love 'em all.

GTA - Meh. Repetitive but fun stories. Nothing I'm wild about, although Red Dead Redemption was awesome.

Half-Life - Duh, awesome, love it, always will love it.

Portal series - If you like to get shit-talked by an AI and think outside the box and ignore your girfriend and burn dinner then go to bed exhausted yet satisfied, it rocks. Love it.

Middle Earth Shadow of Morodor - Dark, violent, very hard, stylish. It's not a LOTR game for kids. Very cool.

Dragon Age - Was very, very excited for Inquisition. Amazing, detailed plot with characters that seem alive... they're surly, mean, and you can never please everyone. The actual gameplay was a HUGE disappointment though. Boring combat. Ruined the game IMO, it had massive potential. "Lets work super hard on everything but the parts in the game where you actually PLAY." - Developers.

Crysis series - Badass.

Dishonored - Badass.

Gears of War - Badass.

The Witcher - Badass as F.

Elder Scrolls - Fun, gets stale.

Deus Ex Human Revolution - PLAY IT NOW. Currently enjoying it for the third time. Great gameplay, slick graphics, slick everything. So good.

I'm missing a bunch but this is what I've done in the last 6 months or so, I'll be back with more.

GAME ON.

EDIT - Very much looking forward to the release of No Man's Sky. Hopefully the gameplay is fun, it looks absolutely beautiful! Link'd pics below.

Dark Souls 3, Dark Souls 3, and more Dark Souls 3.

What I'm saying is that I've been playing a lot of Dark Souls 3.

Hell's yeah!. My 7 year old just hit NG+.  And my PVP Chaos Pyromancer is coming along nicely!

I'm probably going to wrap my first playthrough tomorrow (went with a quality build, hard to beat refined Dark Sword). Do you really have a 7 year old who can beat a Souls game? Because that's way more impressive than my video game skills were at that age.

Back on to Everybody's Golf 5 (actually Minna no Golf 5, the Japanese version has way more charm). Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, I find out there's a 6... I've ordered that, sweeeeeet.

The PS2 collection is filling out nicely at the moment. I bought a console, two controllers, memory card, component lead and 19 games (so far), and I think it's barely cost me much more than £150! Definitely been the bargain console of the recent acquisitions!

trying to get deeper into Dark Souls 3, just wish it wasnt feeling so linear

dark souls 1 is definitely the best in my opinion (thus far)

Just started the F.E.A.R. series.  The first one is really good for an older FPS.

I want to try these games sometime in the near future.

If you are a sucker for PUNISHMENT then I recommend these, it's a love hate relationship. lolz. All kidding aside they are very fun games. I've played through DS1 3 or 4 times ( i didn't really care for DS2). It's SUPER frustrating but incredibly rewarding at the same time.
