I started playing Outer Worlds on Game Pass with the free 1 month in... 2019. I really like it and I am a huge fan of both Fallout 3 and NV. I just know it's hard to get back into it.I liked The Outer Worlds, but a lot of people seem think it's a bit dumbed down compared to... well, Fallout: New Vegas. I just enjoyed the sci-fi setting. That said, it's on GOG, and since it's single player, might be better to buy it there (Christmas sale?)
Might get Persona 5 Royal. Total War: Warhammer 3 is still a bit pricy considering how much DLC usually costs for TWW games. They're really the only things I'm interested in right now.
I can't get into Three Kingdoms. I think the Warhammer games have spoilt me for the more historical Total War games except Shogun 2 (and even then, there is an old Paradox Interactive game called Sengoku which I play for the grand strategy aspect... it is absolutely tough as nails...)I concur with Total War. I wanted to grab Three Kingdoms but it's hard for me to swap between strategy games vs. action / adventure type games. Year over year, my habits change. For strategy, I recommend Anno 1800. I think it's Ubisoft's best Anno to date. And I've heard Crusaders Kings 3 is fantastic too but all these strategy games are too dangerous for me. Factorio quickly took up a large chunk of my time during the pandemic.
I don’t believe I’ve played any paradox strategy game but good to know.I can't get into Three Kingdoms. I think the Warhammer games have spoilt me for the more historical Total War games except Shogun 2 (and even then, there is an old Paradox Interactive game called Sengoku which I play for the grand strategy aspect... it is absolutely tough as nails...)
I could never get into the Anno games. Bought a few over the years, quickly put them down.
Bit on Persona 5 last night. Started it but didn't get too far. More over the weekend if I get time I guess.
The modern Paradox games frustrate me no end. They're exactly the sort of game I like, but the DLC farming is ridiculous. I got Stellaris on a Humble Bundle years ago, but the endless DLC (which is not cheap) just makes me nope out. Europa Universalis IV and Crusaders Kings III suffer the same problem. I've not bought them because I refuse to support that sort of business model where you can spend 10x or more on the DLC than on the game...
