What have you been playing?

Hey, Red Team. How has your year been going? I have been playing so many games over this last few months, and many of them have been great.

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora has been really fun. The visuals were awesome and the frame gen was really well implimented. I have only spent about 12 hours in game but it has been pretty sweet. I enjoy adventuring in the world of Pandora. I like the movies, so that probably makes me biased. That said, I am having a pretty good time playing for an hour here or there.

Palworld blew me away with how well the game runs, and the fun that can be had catching monsters and building bases. I hardly got into the towers, only beating two, and had a blast. I spent a few days lost in this game. I found myself looking at the time, and realizing I spent hours on this game when I meant to just spend one or two.

Wayfinder didn't come out this year but has been pretty cool too. It is early access with a price tag of 20 USD, but I have put about 25 hours into the game and it feels really good to play. Admittedly I don't really know what to do beyond just questing and grinding XP. I should probably pay more attention to the story.

Dragon's Dogma 2 has been a breathe of fresh air, in that there is very little hand holding in this RPG. You do actually need to pay attention to conversations because some quests don't have markers. This isn't the best part. The best part is that you can hire friends NPC characters to help you in your journey. I have been avoiding using the "best" party members so I still get to enjoy the combat instead of just watching your party smash enemies that are supposed to be a challenge. I have a limited understanding of what is actually going on in the game but if you ignore the performance issues, this game is really a good time.

I have played many other games, but I don't have screenshots, and many didn't come out this year. 

The list includes:

  • Helldivers 2
  • Apex Legends (I have 0 skill)
  • Splitgate
  • Chivalry 2
  • Fallout 76
  • Dota 2 (I'm horrible)
  • Outriders
  • Need For Speed Heat, and Unbound
  • Battlefield 2042
  • Starfield

It has been a decent chunk of time since the new year, and I have been having a really good time. What are you playing? Are there any games that just blew your mind?

It has a lot of "in-game ads (not comercial ads) to push you into buying stuff" but I'm not into it. 

I play it free free free without a single purchase. Its a single player game, I might as well take my sweet time to finish it and enjoy the slow progress.

Its funny as hell on earth. 🤣

I may have to give it a try.

I am typically a late game adopter as I wait until they are heavily discounted. And as Far Cry 6 was initially exclusive to Epic I waited until it was on Steam before I picked it up. But it certainly didn't disappoint, I own every Far Cry except Primal and I have over 120 hours in 6 alone.

I would like to pick up Starfield at some point but I also have No Man's Sky on my wishlist for some time as well. In addition to single player RPGs I also enjoy puzzle games, the last one played was House of Da Vinci 2 and I also have Islands of Insight in my queue to try next.

I haven't had much time to play games in the new year.  Currently I am summoning up the will to finish Red Dead Redemption 2 and Baldur's Gate 3.  I also have Ace Combat 7 on my list, as I enjoyed other entries in that series.

Ever since i got my new PC on January. All of them on Ultra or high settings for 1080p. Avoiding upscaling whenever possible. Style of playthrough is semi completionist, offline. Some played the DLC, others haven't. 😛

For the record i had played every single game of relevance released up to the Q4 of 2016 (defective GPU) and in between 50 to 100 games up until 2024. Mostly quality indies and the such. Also had various consoles growing up and played numerous ROMs on emulators.

Yup, four months it's all it took to catch up. Boooooring! xD

I'd never play the suggested games by the OP. No offense. It takes experience to achieve an acquired taste in the best things. Never tried 1440p but i can already tell i am missing big time!

Lately, I’m going through the Tomb Raider reboot trilogy from the 2010s.

I own those games but I haven't gotten around to playing them. Do you recommend?

I was playing loads of Palworld on release, but haven't touched it in a month+.

Right now, I still play my main game of Rocket League, a little bit of League of Legends on the side, and have been eyeing Hades 2.

You need to start Helldiving with the rest of the cool kids. FOR DEMOCRACY.
