I went a bit insane and bought a bunch of Smash-branded gamecube controllers and the adaptor in anticipation

also HOI4 is rather boring

Frozen Synapse 2 also feels incredibly unfinished and held together with duct tape. I guess I'll revisit in the new year and see if it has improved.

I own two official adapters, 5 Sm4sh controllers and 6 original controllers (1 black 1 purple 4 silver)
I literally don't remember why I have so many, I think I just didn't realize I still had the originals and found them after buying new controllers

Just finished Neir: Automata

This game is incredibly japanese, strange, depressing and difficult to describe. But it's also pretty cool, and one of the more novel games I've ever played.

The secret lore was a bit hard to follow when I've never played the other Neir games but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

I can't find anything decent to play anymore so I'm taking a trip to the past and started playing the geneforge series. It's actually pretty good for how dated it is and if you can stand dos era graphics, some clunk, and no music it's actually pretty rad so far. Haven't really got far into it yet but I'm having fun.

The NPCs know you because of two previous games. Also because the whole thing is based on a series of novels.

Once you get past that shit and into the world you'll see scenery porn, get good music, combat is (obviously) more dynamic than anything Beth could come up with unless you're a filthy caster spamming quen and axii, even the fucking minigames (gwent and brawling) are decent. Also, if you explore the world you might bump into hopelessly overleveled opponents that you can still beat if you play it reasonably smart.
Which ties directly into my favourite thing about combat: dodging and countering (and deflecting arrows, of course). It helps make the game feel less like TES' "walk up to an asshole, click on him 20 times, he drops, walk up to next asshole".

Story-wise it's 90%. It's in that weird place where the world is really fucking grim, but then you walk into a cave full of farting trolls who sound like they've been voiced by youtubers. Still, it manages to make you feel like your decisions actually matter, and it makes you decide a lot. Feels like half the contracts have an alternate resolution, and probably more of the sidequests.
Money is also scarce if you're maintaining and replacing your equipment (I went from 15k to broke making new sets of witcher gear and upgrading the old) so you have a reason to pick the higher-reward, but prick-ish options.

It’s a good 2-3 hour gimmick game exclusively because of its atmosphere then it drops off when you realize that your “goal” of working towards what happened to the universe isn’t really a goal because all the logs you find on the derelicts don’t actually form a story



The controls adding to the difficulty of the game is kind of the point tho

Crusader Kings with Holy Fury

It's so considerably better now I can't stop playing

Started as a Count in Byzantium, finding out I can restore the Roman empire, then restoring Hellenism and building it up from scratch starting as a secretive cult, destroying Christianity and reforming Hellenism with the Emperor as its head, forming new orders and societies and generally become an unstoppable war machine

it's really fucking cool

Ok here's the thing with me and Europa universalis and ck2, maybe you guys can show me how I'm wrong; from what I played, it seems like the game really just wants you to follow history. Like, it seems like there is one good path to take by reenacting the crusades or the discovery of the America's or some other shit while the other choices seem lesser or outright detrimental in comparison, and it just seems kind of railroaded instead of more like "you own this country and can do whatever you want to make it a world power" that I was thinking it would be. How true is this?

There are some advantages to taking things historically, but there is nothing stopping you from deciding that crusades aren't worth your time, the new world is unnecessary and France should really colonize Siberia instead
That is, unless you care about doing things the best way, because historically accurate stuff just works out better, numbers wise, in these games. You'll find it cheaper and often easier to do, with a lot more support in the game mechanics for actual history and a few specific alternate history paths(Such as Byzantium's comeback, holy roman empire reforming, and staying within certain borders)

They also have the AI try to be somewhat historical, and in EU some nations get a bonus to encourage them to become more like they were historically(Only AI though, no player bonus)

So yeah, you can do anything you want. But you'll get rewarded if you stick to the script

half the time france gets fragmented and bordergore ruins everything and suddenly france is ruled by cathars and the byzantine empire is 30 seperate states, I prefer historical accuracy to a complete mess.

I think I'm suffering from vidya midlife crisis. Like despite having quite a lot of time to play, I can't engage with a long story or open ended games anymore.

I've bought all the dlcs for Stellaris, I've played few hours, it was fun, I did enjoy it. But, then, I stopped playing, and I can't bring myself to load the game up and continue.
So I've bought most of the new dlc's for CK2. Because I did play CK2 a lot back in the day, I've finished it at least four times, and have good memories of it (like when my main character died and I woke up being the king of Norway). So I've played few hours, learned the new mechanics, it was fun. And then...I just....that's all.

I've bought Final Fantasy 12, because I never played it. Clocked 6 hours, it was great. But that's that, I don't feel like going back. I've bought Yakuza 0, what a god damn fine game it is, but after 8 hours, pooof.

I don't remember what was the last single player game I've finished. I think it was Hitman 6. Perhaps of its disjointed mission based nature? I'm definitely gonna get Hitman 7, when it's on sale.
But all games I play now are multiplayer. SS13, MTG Arena, Warthunder (that's more of a self flagellation at this point), and Rocket League. And that's it.

Help.

Either get some old stuff you may not have played yet, like the entire final fantasy series(the MMO 14 is practically single player until about halfway through), secret of mana, chrono trigger, old Hitman games, other Yakuza games, and so on. There's almost 30+ years of games out there by now, there has to be something in there that you want to play that you haven't already gone through
Or get some of the extra hard games that are fun to play but will force you to put in a shitload of time to get better at them so you can get to the ending
