Horizon Zero Dawn is very solid, No Man's Sky which has gotten a lot better since their horrendous release, they really redeemed themselves lately.

A game with solid story line also is Life is Strange, didn't play the second one but the first was a very interesting concept.
I've played a couple of Fallout, a gazzillion hours of Skyrim V, I mean 512 hours, Horizon Zero Dawn didn't do it for me, as in after a few hours uninstalled, I tried the first Amnesia but nope.
I have considered No Man's Sky, thank you, I think I'll have a look at that.

HL: Alyx is absolutely staggeringly good, but VR makes it expensive. Still absolutely worth it, it’s like nothing I’ve ever experienced.
The portal games are worth it too, same universe, portal 1 is short and sweet, and portal 2 adds quite a bit of lore/backstory.

Based on some of the FPS/horror titles:
Control is very good so far, I’m about 1/3 the way through. Check out a video review, it’s hard to describe the atmosphere.

A bit more in the RPG direction, but highly recommended: Horizon Zero Dawn. Good combat mechanics, excellent characters and acting, post apocalyptic setting, and robot dinosaurs.

I’ve heard very good things about Jedi: fallen order but haven’t gotten to it yet.
Yeah, I've played Black Mesa and Blue Shift (I still have HL and those games on DVD even though my PC doesn't have a DVD drive).

I played Control, 124 hours worth, so I got my money's worth but for some reason I rated it only about 6.5/10. (In my scale of things of 0-10 anything above 5 is positive.) Good but it didn't have much wow to it for me.

Yeah, I had left the Portals of the list. Beautiful games.

Yep, add those to my list as well.

I'm loving Squadrons, but I was a huge fan of XWing, Tie Fighter, XWing vs Tie Fighter and that whole series from the old days. Those games were more fast moving and felt more like you expect a flight sim, but dogfights were generally two players just going in circles and not very fun when it was more "realistic". I can see why they felt a need to change that. I appreciate that Squadrons has a single player mode, AI battles and such. I dont have time to play enough to get good enough for multiplayer. I've just started, but I'll give it a shot.

I only ever enjoyed multiplayer on battlefield bad company modded/hacked servers, where everyone had similar super abilities. Put me in a call of duty server, and I might as well be a running around with a mop.

Yea, I only play multiplayer with my kids and even then I'm usually the one going "crap, well I'm dead". The odd thing is I usually play games on at least one level above "normal" and rarely die.

My gamer tag (which is also DadHawk) actually stands for Death After Death, given to me by my sons who at one point used some form of .....Hawk as they all went to a school where the Hawks was the mascot.

I didn't like Subnautica. No Man's Sky reminded me of Subnautica.

Anyways, as an act of desperation I bought/am playing Serious Sam 4. ('Twas discounted on GoG.)
Absolutely nothing new but at least I am enjoying it a little. I like the scenery, I like the fast paced simplicity of it.

Yet another week that I can't get a F... 3060ti, or 3070 from Best Buy. I manage to add the items way before my trackers notify me, but is useless, because even though I'm about to checkout, Best Buy suddenly decides that my state is not worthy of shipping, or anything in a 250 mile radius.

This is why I just paid the damn scalper rates on Ebay. Otherwise I'd be stuck with a 1080 for another year.

Finished Serious Sam 4 in 47 hours. It was kind of fun but really nothing different from the previous installments. Zero replay value.
On a scale of 0-10 I give it 5.5. Good value at $10 (I paid more than that).

Oh noes! A 1080? How would you ever survive!?!?



My wife has something in the 6xx series she wants to upgrade, but places are out of stock the minute they notify of being in stock.

The only GPU that comes in stock on Best Buy and is not usually sold out within minutes is the PNY 1660 Super, I settled with that one for the mean time. Is a very decent GPU. I get about 100 FPS on Warzone on 1080 High. 60FPS on 1440, and a little less on 4K low.
