After all these recent games failing big at serious narrative (Pillars, I'm looking at you), it is sooo refreshing to play something so simple. Ahhh, the straightforward 80's fantasy.
Maybe I'll even start reading Feist's Magician books again!

Yep. I stalled when reading the "second" book, Magician Master. Need to get back to it, and turn the phone off.

Unlike many series, those books by Feist often improve as you read along. There is a drop off in quality much later, but the ride there is something you will enjoy every page of the way.

Elex is quite fun again. I think it's my favorite PB after Gothic 2. It's better than Gothic 3 (patched) and even the first first Risen (which i thought was almost as good as Gothic 2).
Is it worth playing Risen 2 and/or 3, which do you think i would prefer? It seems like Risen 2 has overall better reviews, the way i remembered it was that people thought 3 was a step up..

I'm surprised you haven't played Risen 2 or 3 yet. To answer your question though, yes, I think they're both worth playing. The combat is mediocre, but the overall experiences are pretty good.

Risen 2 is especially fun if you're in the mood for the pirate theme. Risen 3 goes back to more of a fantasy setting but with better exploration.

Risen 2 - although the sidekick from inquisition is OP, go shaman route for fun faction quests.
Risen 3 - keep Bones as your sidekick all the time for his banter.

Buy, play, now.

I enjoyed all three Risen games, but the very first one was, and still is, my favourite one. Two and three are certainly worth playing, the range and scope of the third game will take anyone quite some time to finish on an initial play. Compared to many other series, you really cannot go wrong with any of the three.

Great, thanks. I already own all of them (i'm good at supporting my favorite devs, not so good at playing everything though). I also have Fallout 4 and Horizon Zero Dawn to play.. not sure which one to begin with yet.

Save Fallout four for the very last, then you'll have a plethora of good memories to sustain you during that game…..you'll need them!

After spending months playing Lords of Xulima I fancied something different - something
story heavy, a bit more actiony, not party based. So I fired up Vampire: the Masquerade - Bloodlines. Its been sat in my Steam account unplayed for years, but all the talk of Vampyr got me thinking about it. I'm only a couple of hours in but I'm really enjoying it. The character creation was more interesting than I expected and the freedome to explore the first proper map is good fun. Looking forward to sinking more hours into it over the weekend.

@Pongo is it your first time playing Vampire: Bloodlines? Did you had to patch the game for the Steam version? I bought it a while ago but didn't end up playing as it won't launch without unofficial patch and I felt too lazy to do that.

If you get it from GoG (currently 75% off), it comes with the unofficial patch included so you don't have to do a separate install.

Yeah its my first time playing it. I've installed the unofficial patch, apparently you need it to get rid of bugs. There's a link to it in the Steam forum; it was easy to install and everything is working smoothly. For what its worth, comments in the Steam forum suggest that the GOG version comes with the unofficial patch already installed.

What clan did you choose? I went with Ventrue my first time. I'm going to replay as Malkavian in the very near future. Probably right after I finish Vampyr.
