    You will love Path of Exile then. Pet/summon builds in that are disgusting.

    Indeed. It's one of two games that does that. The other is Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. And that's my answer to the thread title, even though in this absurd place it seems everything that isn't Fallout 1 belongs in this thread. Anyhow, TPS really scratches that space opera itch, what with the lunar surface and a space station being your primary locations, and the most spacey synth soundtrack since, well, Mass Effect (or SG Universe if you're nasty). Sheeeeeiiiit, I might have to go play some right now, with 6 characters and normal/tvh/uvh there's always something to do.

    All the eurojank games from Spiders. Let's be honest, these are objectively not great, I never get an urge to replay them and I forget about their plot/characters a week after playing. But I always have shitloads of fun playing them once, and always get excited when they announce a new one.

    Same with Jeff Vogel stuff, though few of his games were actually good and memorable enough to put them above "guilty pleasures" for me.

    Ah, fact. My guilty pleasure RPG is none other than Planescape: Torment. It is great yet it is also pretty shallow and does not do justice to AD&D as much as in example Baldurs Gate does. The gimmicks like cutting a zombies stitching with a scalpel through dialogue is great though. Never finished it either.

    Here's something I feel guilty about admitting. I don't like vanilla Skyrim, but I did enjoy modding the hell out of it by using the BBB mods and turning the female characters from fugly to pretty hot. Then I download fan made houses like the Riverside Lodge with Sauna or Whiterun Mansion and fill it with hotties from the Companion mods and outfit them with some of the sexier clothing mods. Yeah, it's pretty sad, but it's nice to have a fantasy home away from home. An even sadder fact is I avoid the rest of the game. The fan-made homes are a lot better than anything you can get in the core game. I haven't started the game in years, but I also refuse to delete the 50+ gigs of data that houses the mods because it's nice to know the home is still there.

    I played Fallout 4 for a few hours. I only played it to check out the sex mods, though.

    lol..said "debt until your early 30's" from buying a house...kid must be 14 to think early 30's is some super ancient age to have debt until...reality is he would be lucky as fuck to even begin the first fucking year of his mortgage in his early 30's..lol

    I remember thinking that I would be super old when I was 32

    FMV! I have a new-found enthusiasm for those mid-90s adventure games. But I don't really feel guilty about it...

    Bethesda games. Can't say I'm guilty about it, but they generally aren't well regarded here. I acknowledge their flaws, and I when I play their old games I mourn for what that company could have been. Still, I enjoy them for what they are.
