  1. Sims 2 was definitely the best of the series to me, although 3 had some really good bits. Sims 4 . . . well I didn't even start playing until a bunch of stuff had been put back in and didn't manage even fifty hours - total - before abandoning it. I don't think I had a game with less than 50 hours in 2, and the only short games in 3 were ones started specifically for a specific achievement. I just preferred being able to play every house/family in turn and playing my own story plots which was what 2 excelled at.
  2. Dragon Age. My then-boyfriend gave me Dragon Age: Origins for the PS3 for my first birthday after we met. He later got Dragon Age 2 and Inquisition, and after we were married, I got him DA:I for the PS4. However, I only started playing DA this past January. I've almost Platinumed DA:O, and have most of the DLC done, so I'll be moving into the next game soon. Ferelden is a very interesting place, but there are some really dark bits of story in there.
  3. Scary and sort of weird - No Man's Sky has a point in the main quest where you are suddenly teleported into space to just 'fall', nothing around you but stars -no ships or planets in sight. This goes on long enough to need to refill your life support at least once, maybe twice. Nowadays it results in a lot of frantic reddit posts from people who quit the game, convinced that something went wrong, and the senior players just say, 'no, that's right, just be sure you have plenty of oxygen and refill your life support until the scene changes . . .' Since you generally get swept off one of the exotic planets, the impression is: lots of bubbles, rainbows, sunlight, maybe the odd creature *poof* endless black with a few stars and your suit telling you life support is falling rapidly.
  4. I don't need another Hyrule Warriors - I haven't finished the first one despite having three versions! But oh, yeah, I'm gonna get this one too. Sigh. If I weren't an essential worker, I might have been able to clear some of my backlog earlier this year. Add another to the (semi-virtual) pile.
  5. I'm sticking with Sony (and Nintendo) right now. The only Xbox game I've ever had interest in were the Pinata game and Zoo Tycoon - and I lost interest in the latter as I learned more about it. PS5 will let me keep playing my current games (NMS, Skyrim VR, Skyrim modded, Ghost of Tsushima and ESO), with the option of finishing trophies on some that I'm taking a break from. (And also, my husband can keep on with his games.) It will also possibly give me a means of returning my LE ship to my day 1 NMS save, which requires either a helpful friend or a second console. Most of the exclusives I track and Nintendo's. but the rest all belong on Playstation, so it's an easy choice for me. Besides, after Nintendo overdid Pokemon to the point I lost interest and sold my entire collection, I have most of a PS5 price on a Gamestop card at the moment, unless it's utterly ridiculous.
  6. Xenoblade Chronicles DE on the Switch. I played some on the Wii but something interrupted me and I never got back into it. I did buy the 3DS version, but I'm not sure I even started it. I actually remembered one of the early cutscenes, but only after watching several I had no memory of at all. I'll probably be doing No Man's Sky and Elder Scrolls Online on the PS4 until the PS5 comes out. The 3DS doesn't get much use nowadays.
  7. I quite enjoyed Color Splash, but Sticker Star was awful. It was exceedingly non-intuitive to the point I ended up having to look up exactly what super-sticker was needed for each boss and when to use it, because a lot of things that seemed reasonable to do big damage did little to none. And, of course, once you used it, it was gone, and you had to finish or quit the battle to go fetch another one if you used your super weapon at the wrong time. Color Splash I finished with only one or two instances of having to look up something - and one of those was my usual, 'But that's exactly what I was doing!' I never actually played the original, but I adored TTYD and Super Paper Mario, and while Color Splash wasn't as good I found it extremely enjoyable.
  8. Starter Paper Beast on the PSVR - I've been waiting for it since it was supposed to come out in October (Oct 2019, that is). Wonderful surreal creatures in an abstract environment with puzzles that I have twice spent large amounts of time trying to solve incorrectly. (e.g. Huge pile of sand with 'jeweled crabs' moving it around in a cave. I spent half an hour trying to get them to pile the sand so that I could reach the exit . . . only to finally realize it was the wrong 'exit'.) I understand that the actual game playthrough is relatively short, but there's also a sandbox mode to set up your own paper critter-infested world. Paper dog-likes, crocodiles, paper and shell tortoises who produce sand, a guide creature like a multilegged wire sauropod and another like a paper ragmop. The downside is teleport movement only (which actually doesn't bother me much in this game) and click turns (which DO). But they should not be reasons to skip the game if you have VR. Also bought Panzer Dragoon on the Switch but haven't started it quite yet. Am keeping up with my Ring Fit, which just got jogging and rhythm games added.
  9. Bought inBento on the Switch. Clicked right along through almost half of it before getting stuck. Now it's taking me several brief sessions to get through some of the puzzles. (I got it because I don't currently have time for long game sessions.) Basically a short game, but was on sale when I got it, and very cute with the kitty-cat family photos unveiled as you progress. No Man's Sky and Elder Scrolls Online continue alternately on the PS4. Just earned a Living Ship in NMS, white with Metallic green trim, and got my first freighter on my day 1 save, so I can run frigate missions and bring in more cash. Mostly, I still just ramble like an old-timey prospector - no intensive farming or mining, just wander around exploring, collecting and selling what I find, plus the frigate missions and occasional trips to my small farm to harvest, construct and sell. I can now expand my mechanical ship's storage space to max for a whole lot of units, so I'm occasionally adding more storage space.
  10. I am skeptical of PS3 compatibility, based on all I've heard, but would be thrilled to have it. I still have several PS3 games that weren't finished when the old unit died.
  11. Having finished Link's Awakening, I'm on to Dragon Quest Builders 2 and Luigi's Mansion 3 on the Switch, Elder Scrolls Online and No Man's Sky (still) on the PS4. DQ2 has a lot more in it than the first one, which I really enjoyed, to the point I managed to totally forget what I was supposed to be doing when I returned to the game. LM3 I got a delayed start on, because I had to go back and finish LM2:Dark Moon. (Typical me - I'd gotten to the last set of levels, and stopped one level before the Final Boss fight Had a lot of fun over Christmas playing LM 3 with my niece (12), who played Gooigi. Gave her Link's Awakening and my brother Super Mario Odyssey for Christmas, both by specific request, after they finished Breath of the Wild together. I gave them the Switch and BotW last summer.
  12. Multiple Toads got turned into paintings in Dark Moon, so not only Mario in the past.
  13. I've fallen into Elder Scrolls Online, on the PS4, with a side of Skyrim VR and Fallout 4 (still working on platinum for those, but NOT for ESO). Elsweyr and too long with no main series game finally got to me. On Switch I've got Dragon Quest Builders 2 and Link's Awakening, which I had halfway played on the 3DS. PSA - if you have an expired bonus code for ESO it may still work. I just got a mount and costume with a code that supposedly expired two years ago.
  14. I have one TV and a husband who plays a lot of (and only) PS4 games. So as the one willing to play PC, Switch, and/or 3DS games, I have to cede the TV most weekends. Now, when the Wii U gamepad got a better battery, I bought one and replace the old battery, which was wearing out at that point anyway. I do not like that I can't do that with the Switch. But I need those controllers. Go Gators! (with a blue one ) and Arrrr! Pirates with purple and gold! (I do not need more controllers, I do NOT need more controllers . . . .)
  15. Got a PSVR to prepare for NMS Beyond in a month or so. Now I'm a bit swamped with Moss (which I'd just finished when they expanded it), Astro Bot, Skyrim VR and Fallout 4 (not VR) which I'd only just finally gotten a chance to start. Since I'm having to do Skyrim in small segments to keep my stomach happy, it's not as bad as it could be. (I did not know you could get VR-sick after the fact - as in several hours after playing. It was NOT fun.)
