Recently, I’ve gotten back into PC Gaming. Steam had a major sale (what else is new?) and I purchased the Far Cry games. I played Far Cry when it first came out, and I recalled enjoying it. I read a lot of good things about Far Cry 3 on this forum and others. Holy shit. Have I been missing out, or what?
Using a flamethrower to light up cannabis farms of a giant cartel boss, while blasting what sounded like Damian Marley and Skrillex had a profound, life changing impact on my life. I need more of this.
So, I’ll give you a run down. The most recent games I bought and enjoyed (aside from the Far Cry franchise) were Mankind Divided, Persona 5, Final Fantasy XV, Dark Souls 3, Rainbow Six: Siege, and The Witcher 3 (aka horse-riding simulator ). Scratch Mankind Divided, Final Fantasy XV, and Persona off the list, because those were PS 4. So, I’ve been out of the PC Gaming sphere for a while.
Is there anything on the market worth buying? I really love The Elder Scrolls franchise, CRPG reboots/modernizations (Pillars of Eternity, Tyranny), 2D/3D MetroidVania (Salt and Sanctuary, Soulsbourne franchise), complex strategy/RPG hybrids (Sins of a Solar Empire, Warhammer III: DoW, Stellaris), and open world, story centric games (Far Cry 3 really did it for me, wish there were choices though, I also like the Batman games, Alpha Protocol, [not so much open world, but you get the idea]).
Any modern recommendations you can make would be great. Looking at my list above, clearly I’ve bought more recent additions than Rainbow Six lol. Also, I just bought PC Building Simulator. Simulations are a guilty pleasure of mine, but I don’t bank a ton of hours into them at a time. Maybe 1 or 2 at a time.
Anyway, thanks in advance!
