    Bannerlord comes to Early Access in early 2020. and for the time being get Star Citizen.

    Or ask Makkabb for other games that will completely turn the world around. Talking to the guy about those new games is always like

    J_C you being to sound like the most grown up, grounded person on the Codex [​IMG]

    But somehow this makes me a bit sad too. I personally work only about 2 hours a day to have enough to live and can play whenever I want, and if you were an IT guy you could do that too. You should really find something to boost your career as you mentioned in the programming thread.

    I rarely play anymore, there is like 2 or 3 games am looking forward to and all are RPGs, I lost all interest in playing other types of games. If I have free time I would rather train or attend classes to learn Latin dance, or take classes in mountain climbing. I am lucky that the place I moved to have all those places 5 min walk from my home. Sometimes I get nostalgic urge to play something old but then I would get super bored and delete it just as quickly. Such is life. Interests change as you grow up.

    I dont know anyone but NEETs who don't have to frequently take abstinence from videogames. Modern life in most countries is just way too busy

    A God that would judge you to eternal damnation does not sound like a loving God I would want to follow. The true God loves you unconditonally and would never have you suffer in eternal torture.

    Yeah, Endless Legend got me hooked good back in 2015. It's an insanely good game, but I haven't touched another strategy like that since.

    I wouldn't say I quit gaming because I still play them and probably always will, but I am mostly checked out of the modern gaming scene. I can't stand hype culture and I'm a lot more careful with the time and money I spend now.

    Video games are very capable of being incredible experiences, it's just hard to find the ones that are.

    I think I was more addicted to gaming as such when videogames were new to me, and still mysterious in some way - when it seemed like there were vast, open horizons to the possibilities in gaming.

    Now that it's all turned into a corporate shitshow like everything else (which I won't deny has benefits too), that possibility space seems to have closed down somewhat, so I'm less interested in the hobby than I was.

    So I do play fewer games, less regularly. But though I play fewer games, I can still get addicted to good ones that crop up, or have a gaming jag now and then (I'm going through one at the moment with P:K and POE2, after not having played games much for the previous year).

    I can't see myself not gaming ever though.

    I definitely don't game as much as when I was in my grade school to University years. It's not that I don't have the time, but I would rather do other things. Most modern games do not interest me at all, and I can only replay my old classics so much. I still read gaming news and shitpost about games, be it discussing some old favorites or yelling at kids and telling them their taste in games is shit. I rarely play any single game more than 30 minutes now. However, actually quitting games, that just won't happen.

    Man I'm 34 and I'll never quit gaming. I do have dry periods of no passion for it for a month or two at a time, but I always go back strong. I am still just as interested in it as when I was 10 years old. Some of you guys should try to get the childliike innocence back and just enjoy instead of being jaded about gaming.

    I'm much more picky on the games I'll play, if I'm not in love with the gameplay and I don't have any strong attachment to the story, themes, or whatever, I'll drop it and never look back.

    It's simple: either God grants those whom have Heaven eternal happiness by excluding those who do not (into Hell), or He suffers those whom are righteous and just to just another version of Earth where the wicked are among the just. There are other reasons, but this is one of them.

    I replaced gaming with shitposting. At times I would like to play something but...just look at top 100 at thepiratebay…what's the point of robbery when nothing is worth taking.

    Kind and loving God is a meme. God hates sin, he's angry with the wicked every day, he hates them with a perfect hatred.

    I agree gaming is depressing but you should give up on that Top 100, it is always terrible. People are plebs, mainstream, stupid dumb fucking plebs. If you have any sort of taste or standards then the Top 100 is no use, you have to find stuff mainstream normies have never heard of. There are some great games but it is mostly indie stuff you have to discover on codex or wherever.

    I keep a "games to play soon" list. Some are not out yet, some are. A few are mainstream, but mostly they are lesser known gems in this ocean of crapness. Here's some of my list:


    Hitman 2

    Dota Underlords

    legend of the five rings, CCG
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvDpf6KPfdA&t=385s

    Elona+
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9gOQxHX83E&t=2s

    Underrail. Expansion comes in August.

    Bards Tale 4 - Expansion comes in August.

    Subnautica. (Don't forget Speedhack)

    Druidstone

    Slay the Spire

    Tactics ogre

    Grimoire (manual is here: http://goldeneragames.com/Manual_GrimoireRPG_V2/)

    Fall of Dungeon Guardians - (Completed this once, but do it again with a new party, fun game) Note: turn off trash fights and turn mapping on.

    Space hulk tactics

    Skylords Reborn (gets a server wipe once beta ends which is any month now)

    Krondor, remake, sort of: Going to be 2025 ish
