I think I'm enjoying it because of the lack of things to do in it. It's very calm and easy to move around. Best comparison is that it's like a walking simulator, except you can shoot things. This will likely upset a lot of Fallout faithfuls no doubt, but I like it!

Certainly a lot more than I've enjoyed Red Dead Redemption 2 which has felt like work every time I turn it on. Visually stunning, mechanically great, and narratively very interesting - just, exhausting stuff to remember what to do all the time.

I think the other aspect of Fallout 76 that I've enjoyed is when I play it with a friend. Spent a good six hours playing it the other night with him, and loved it. Best part was when we spent a good two hours trying to take out a group of super mutants, and when I managed to figure out how to throw a molotov and ended up accidentally killing us as it hit a wall and burnt us to death. Good fun.

Anyone know the best way to get original Starcraft (or diablo 1 & 2) to run? I have a mac book but at this point I am not against buying an old laptop just to get my game on. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as its been years since i played em. Also trying to run the Rebellion AvP FPS which was way ahead of its time.

You should all get Ape Out. It's a superb game.

Been playing a lot of Sekiro this past week. I’m pretty awful at it, but am making (really) slow progress, and loving it so far.

Sorted out Starcraft 1 and 2. re ran through campaigns, all a great as i remember them being. The perfect RTS imo.

Also Battlefield 5 is awesome. Firestorm mode is great and i am not typically huge on shooter royales.

Loving here too! Quite difficult though, and I've been a souls player for ever. Even had Demon's Souls when it only had a Japanese release, and I don't speak any Japanese. That was tough.
