I think my first game was Mario All-Stars back on the SNES, then Warcraft II. Not gaming much at the moment. Over the years I've become more and more 'specialized' in what I want, which is adventure/RPG games. Preferably in a pre-modern setting so historical realism (like Kingdom Come Deliverance) or fantasy (Witcher etc.) are my genres. Not much excitement in recent times/years.

My main genre is still tactical FPS games with a strong focus on teamwork, but the older I get, I find myself playing more RPGs because FPS games often need you to invest quite a bit of time if you want to be able to compete.

 

Good to see another based Kingdom Come Deliverance enjoyer! The optimization could have been better. I have a pretty decent PC and it still has its issues. Good game though. I love the scenery and the history.

 

I wish there was more medieval RPGs with less magic to be honest. I'm not totally against casting spells and stuff, but I tend to gravitate towards normal combat.

Yes, great game. A few issues here and there but a blast of an experience. I enjoyed the simpleness of it, no grand world-destroying stuff. I liked all the simple stuff like doing routines in the monastery, lol. I thought it was very immersive.

 

Yeah, too much magic can hurt a fantasy setting and reduce immersion. Makes armour and melee weapons irrelevant so logically a high-magic setting would make warriors an endangered species. Destructive magic especially should be exceptional and rare. I like playing a warrior and use a bit of magic, like how I played Witcher3.

Good game, and I'm looking forward to it going F2P so the playerbase grows. I feel sorry the folks that have to market it though, with what's going on in Ukraine they have a lot of competition when it comes to key words in search engines.

I recently sold my decades old Sega Mega Drive on eBay for £115

When I was testing it out, it brought back so many memories.

Loved Prem Manager 97, FIFA International Soccer and Eternal Champions. I'm no gamer any more but I'd say them games can stand up to any released today ... kinda know through a gaming mate and his games.

I mainly just use emulation for older titles these days as I'm lazy, but I still have a Mega Drive. Not my original, just an unboxed one that somebody gave me. The problem that I always find is that the older systems often don't look great on modern screens. There are devices that you can get to upscale or improve the image, but I still find old school CRT TVs to be better for older systems.

 

I have started gaming a bit more again recently, but there isn't much that interests in regards to recent titles. Triple A games have gone downhill a lot, but theres some quality indie titles still.

 

Retro games still hold good memories for me, and they seemed like they were made with more care, but I guess they had to be because they couldn't just patch and update them. It's the microtransaction crap, and woke development decisions that are ruining gaming in my opinion, like the movies I suppose.

what games have you got on steam?

 

Mostly classics to be honest. I have 903 games, but I haven't bought much in recent years.

A lot of the triple A games that I have bought in recent years have mostly been on console. My newer games on Steam are mostly FPS or survival games from smaller studios, stuff like Rust, SCUM, ARK, and WW3. I often just play F2P stuff like PUBG too, which is probably why I slowed down on buying games in recent years because I usually just play the same stuff.

 

My most played games are:

 

Rust - 1,515 hrs on record

Dirty Bomb - 1,073 hrs on record (I haven't touched DB for a while though because it died a few years back)

 

I do have lot of the common games that other people play, I just need to start playing them. I have hundred of games that I haven't touched, and lots that just say around 4 hours play time, but that was mostly just me running idle master to get the card drops.

I started steam when valve released Half Life 2.

you could pre order the game, download it, install it and it would activate at midnight on day of release to play.

most of my games are half life/ valve related.

stalker bundles, doom bundles.
