Still playing Black Ops 3. I wish my wife was more into Zombies but she can barely stand it and just wants to play multiplayer. I keep pointing out that all the DLC trophies are for Zombies thus, it's better and more important but that doesn't work. I have finally made her aware of the actual story though and that there are easter egg/quests in each and that's increased her interest a bit because some of the easter eggs are impossible solo.

I just played Discworld Ankh-Morpork with my sister and brother. Very nice game that actually didn't turn out to overstay it's welcome as I thought it would (sadly that's the fate of most of my heavier board games). Sadly since Pratchett is dead now the license is gone and due to the laws and license rules of the publisher the game is now permanently out of print so you would probably only be able to find it at a high price.

Bloody licensing and copyright bullocks, eh?

For myself, presently addicted to Fallout Shelter. While I will never give Bethesda money directly for their crap take on Fallout and remain loyal to Black Isle/Obsidian for crpg/console, it's a mobile game so I don't see it as bad to play something of there's. And as mobile games go, it's quite good. If Bethesda stuck to mobile games instead of vast, pretty worlds with brutally broken leveling systems and some of the worst, shallow, amateur writing I've ever encountered in pc or console gaming, I might actually like them.

So... The Walking Dead No Man's Land is the first truly free to play game I've found. My wife and I are both enjoying it and it hasn't cost a cent. And there's no need to spend any money unless you're ridiculously impatient. Star Trek Timelines on the other hand... What a rip off. Distruptor Beam has to be the greediest developer out there. It's almost impossible to achieve any progress without signing over your pay cheque.

If you like action game you could check out Path of Exile. Only cosmetic upgrades for money, no gameplay help (uhm, might be storage space on sale, I don't know, never needed it anyway). ;)
Requested: One Mark V ECM unit, 1000 km of Fullerene cable, one low-yield nuclear warhead.

Purpose: Surprise party for foreign dignitary.

playing an old game called Civ 4 I freaking love it. Better than Cive 5 for the most part and slightly more nuanced than Civ 6. All three games deserve to exist though. Plus Civ 4's tech tree is a bit on the dumb side.

After 6 years playing mostly Star Wars: The Old Republic (a MMO), the last year, I've mostly been playing Guild Wars 2 (another MMO) in my spare time

In between, some coop games with two friends, mostly Borderlands 2, Age of Empires 2 and currently Borderlands 2: The Pre-Sequel.

Coop games when only one of my regular coop partners are online would be Portal 2 (yes, the number 2 again) and Saints Row III. All of it is great fun.

When none of them are around, it's a lot of mixed stuff. I've played a lot of Nier: Automata, Witcher III, Master or Orion 2 and Killing Floor 2 (online with random strangers)

Edit: The "beauty" of Guild Wars 2 is, while it has a cash shop (money has to come from somewhere after all, but it's purely cosmetic stuff), the game is not subscription based. Need a break, put it aside for a month or two, no skin of your nose. Only feel like playing the odd day every now and then? No problem either. I did find a nice guild where I for once is no longer the oldest person around (the GM is 5 years older and his right hand woman running the guild is in her 60's) :cool:
