    Well, Covid has made it boring and college is kicking my behind so I got a bit addicted with Genshin Impact to cope. Well, not to the point that I don’t do school work because I’m miraculously still productive.

    Fortunately for me I ended up working for a while at an essential business that at one point had us working seven days a week for a whole month then as things started to wind down people got laid off in small batches so it was my turn today with only a small few left. As for gaming it has been mostly minecraft (to chill out) and world of tanks to blow off steam but beyond that I've been doing pretty well though I am going to sit it out for a while till things settle given that I do have to care for my Mom who isn't in the best of health. As for productivity meh I don't stress over it unlike the usual types that mentally break down when there isn't a lot to do though should there be boredom I've recently downloaded around 40GB of ebooks so that will be fun.

    I stopped playing Genshin Impact after 10 days of straight playing it. I don't know why, the game is great though if you're into RPG. How's the game going?

    I have a PS4 that usually collects dust. Decided to get into Horizon Zero Dawn. I also play hearthstone regularly, if anyone that plays hearthstone wants to play together- open invite. :)

    Wow, I tried that heartstone way back 2015 but decided to stay away from it as it's very addictive. Though I can't ignore the fact this one have so many great musical numbers too.

    Yea I liked hearthstone for close to five years then got burnt out with the grind however the real reason I uninstalled was due to a scandal with Blizzard once word got out that some of their employees posted racist messages on twitter.

    I play because it's simple, engaging and I don't have to spend any money. My Dad is into it too, it's cool seeing him rise through the ranking system. We've both gone to a fireside gathering, which is a way to meet players in your area. We met up at a bar, drank some beer and played with a good group of people. They were into the snacks and drinks too. :D Hearthstone is more balanced I think now than what it was, so many different game modes. Or I should say, there are more "broken" options for the average player to pick up on. The fun for me is in creating an original deck that beats the established "broken" decks.

    As part of the first generation to grow up on video games I'm kind of addicted to them and got literally hundreds of games to choose from. My favorite video games are rpgs like pokemon and kingdom hearts, but lately been thinking about getting more into sim games like the sims and animal crossing. Lately been feeling like I need a little break from rpgs and need to try other games. Unfortunately work keeps me pretty busy that I dont have much time for video games.
    My best friend got me into genshin impact back when it first came out and I've finally gotten back into playing that.

    What was the scandal about if I may ask? If it's against forums regulations, please feel free to ignore my question. :D

    Probably is but to get some vague sense to what it was that if one is aware of the woke crowd and their cancel culture then you'll know what the target demographic was.

    I have yet to get that far into genshin impact. Not enough time and apparently not playing much anymore again. I also play minecraft, but again dont have much time to play. Created my own private minecraft server but no one to really play with. I'm kind of picky about who I play online with and usually will only play online with friends.

    I’m not that far, I’m stuck at WL 1. I don’t want to ascend yet because I need to farm for my characters so that they’re ready for WL 2.

    I've been playing a lot of online flash games and Love Nikki lately.

    There was a Yu-Gi-Oh game I used to play a lot called Duelists of the Roses. I wish I could play that again- it's a great way to accidentally kill like four hours lol.

    Lol I thought that you were older, anyway I got a copy and it does alright playing through an emulator. Pity that such game play isn't in the meta these days.

    There's enough of a cult following, maybe Konami will bring it back one day

    Yeah its sad games today aren't as good as they were back when I was growing up in the 2000s. Luckily I still got my games from when I was growing up. Even have my old Nintendo 64 and gameboy color still from when I was a kid and they are both in good condition and still work. I have plans that if I ever have a kid someday I will try to get them into retro games. I tried getting my nephew who is really into video games to get into retro games but the only one I was able to get him into was pokemon which is kind of good since I really like pokemon games, but other than that he would rather play newer games. However, I got a friend with a young son who I use to babysit and he's more into retro games especially if it's a mario game so I know some kids these days are into retro games.

    This is perhaps one of the best cult classics for the PS2 and a childhood favorite.

    I played the first drakan order of the flame. very beauty.
    i grow up as a kid with super mario bros and nintendo nes.
    i played the legacy of kain series, vice city and saint row series (like gta), skyrim and the star wars games like jedi outcast, jedi academy and kotor.
    the engine of jedi academy now is open source as GPL licence and i want to use it for make my own game, but i have troubles with c++ cause JKA have restrictions about number of weapons and spells, and i need something like an external library like SAB files for add infinite weapons and spells.
    after seven years again i have not found a c++ expert programmer that can help me.
    :\ and i also looked into jedi academy modding communities.

    I miss some flash games and fantage. They’re my childhood. I sometimes play BDO after my friend gifted me on Steam. Well still Genshin for the most part, though. If not, I’m more into watching YouTube really.

    Picture: The feels of speedrunning a world level just to meet a guy you have a serious crush on and then later realising you’re screwed with underlevelled characters. All this because I crushed on someone. Well at least I’m going on a ‘date’ haha

    An oldie but a goodie, I have been going back through the Fable games. I want to start playing Overwatch because it looks so much fun, but I am terrible at first-person shooters.

    No but I play tanks on the pc and generally that kind of play attracts a Lot of hate mail because it results in drastically lower win rates lol. I report loads of bot accounts on an almost daily bases.
