I'm pretty late on this but finally started playing The Witcher 3 on PS4.  Fantastic game so far.  I keep moving away from the main quest and exploring (walking randomly) which is pretty cool but also gets me in trouble sometimes.  I haven't been able to dedicate as much time  as I want to it but definitely will keep at it.  Can't wait to finish and get the expansion packs!

Looks pretty cool, I may have to pick that one up since I'll be doing a lot of sitting around after the surgery, especially at only $20.

Before I took the PE, I hadn't played any new console games in ages. Told myself I would get a switch after I got my PhD, but I never did. Then I said the same thing about my PE, but then wasn't going to again. Finally my wife had enough of my indecisiveness and bought one for me for Christmas.

For those talking about BotW, damn what a good game. I've been a Zelda fan all my life, and it's got to be my favorite game of all time, hands down. I haven't finished yet, but the difficulty is definitely higher than past games in the series (which has been a breath of fresh air). The cut scenes are awesome as well.

@saxman1089 I loved playing BotW!  Well, watching my brother play it.  He humored me and let us hunt for frogs for the first three hours of the game...We spent way more time in the first area than we needed to due to me being like, "Recipes?  Like Tales games?  Yes!  Make all the things!"

I fear I've become more of a game watcher than a game player nowadays.  But I can't stand watching streaming videos of people playing because they're always TALKING and COMMENTING and making LAME JOKES.  I just want to watch a playthrough with no talking, just the video game, which is so hard to find.  😰

BotW is amazing.  It's hard at the beginning with the weapons breaking constantly, but you get past that pretty quick.  I finished the DLC sometime in December and got the motorcycle.  So worth it.

I played a bunch of FTL on the ipad over Christmas break since my son had the Switch on use anytime I wanted to play on it.  Old game, but still so good.

Now that I'm back on my PC, I'm playing Subnautica.

Epic has What Remains of Edith Finch: https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/what-remains-of-edith-finch/home

and Steam has Blast Zone Tournament, which looks like a Bomberman rip: https://store.steampowered.com/app/649190/Blast_Zone_Tournament/

My wife likes to watch me play Red Dead Redemption, and before that watched me play The Last of Us. She really gets into the storyline, but more than anything really enjoys my commentary. Half the time I don't even know I'm talking and it's just random streams of thought as I'm doing missions/tasks.

She missed a big part of my gameplay a couple weeks ago because she was at work while I was at home playing for hours on end and insisted that I at least get her up to speed with the storyline before I went any further. She was pissed when she missed the ending (she fell asleep and I stayed up late).

For me it's a mix of storyline but also helping out my brother.  We did that a lot when we were little (puppy pile on the bed with me and my siblings and 'helping' by yelling out suggestions on the boss levels) and it's kinda carried over.  Like, I'll play RPGs/JRPGs and he'll watch me grind for hours/supply popcorn, and when he's playing something with more action/not turn based, I'll get him soda and stuff.  We're pretty quiet when playing, mostly so we can read the subtitles/hear the music/not make my dad angry because he's usually teaching upstairs.  I like video games that have a %-complete.  Something we liked when we were little and renting games from Blockbuster.  Mom wouldn't let us return/exchange it if we finished the game in a day until we had 100%.

I think the last game I played was Pokemon?  The hawaiian one?  With the hula battles and stuff.  I don't think I finished it?  Mostly using my spare time after work to do the dishes and sell stuff online (aka; not re-watching The Office, what do you mean, never?).
