    I just assumed that all dedicated hunting sims were for rednecks and never played one. How's the gameplay in this? Any good? I actually liked the hunting/crafting quests in Far Cry 3-4 so would I like this? I'll try anything once. I generally don't like the idea of shooting harmless real-world animals though except for necessary culling and shit. Only like killing the mutant/demonic ones that have a strong chance of ripping your pods off with a single swipe. But if I did kill a real-world animal I'd be certain to make sure no part of the beast is wasted, from fresh, delicious venison to fur to braised deer penis. Waste not want not.

    Gameplay is super slow and methodical, you could say boring if you go in with different expectations. It occupies a middle ground between full-blown simulation and a gamey game, I like it a lot. A lot of mechanics at play from smell, wind direction, sight, sound, a ton of calibers and weapons, etc etc. Lots of DLC though.

    The game is 75% off on Steam right now (but I'd still suggest getting it on GOG instead).

    Anyway, it's one of my all time faves and I don't even like platformers so the gameplay is very much yes.
    It's astonishingly polished in regards to movement even the exact manner you slide off a wall after jumping into it was subjected to iterative improvement.
    Also, 5' in is not even gameplay proper IIRC.

    I don't recall where exactly -- might be RPS before they went to shit -- but I once read an article discussing Euro and American Truck Simulator's great popularity among retired truckers. Probably the same kind of nostalgic forces at work.

    Ori and The Will of The Wisps is out and is possibly even more gorgeous than the first one (if a bit buggy).

    Recently played some other games I could recommend:

    GTA V - pretty and fun - entertaining story and jokes as well as very likeable characters. One of my greatest surprises tbh, haven't had so much fun in an action game for a decade at least. Meh start, but doesn't take long to take off.

    Metro: Exodus - beautiful graphically, gameplay is decent, but story and characters are meh.

    The Talos Principle - not as good as Antichamber or Portal, but an okay puzzle game with nice graphics (albeit a bit dated)

    Pathologic 2 - I just started playing but seemingly it's Pathologic with patches and improved pretty graphics.
