I'm currently trying to zero in on a video game that will hit my "sweet spot" and scratch all the right itches at once. To that end I'm finally giving The Witcher 3 a try after getting it on sale over the weekend. The first was too clunky and difficult, the second just too difficult, but I think I can manage this one on easy if I load up on restoratives and try to take advantage of enemy weaknesses more often.
I'm digging the open world aspect and "picking flowers" for crafting. Trying to up my game from just alternating button mashing between quick and heavy attack. The combat will take some adjustment, but once upon a time I thought I would hate and be terrible at the Shadow Hearts combat system and Diablo clones and those are now my two favorite styles of RPG combat! So I'm hoping that by stretching a bit I'll soon discover enjoyment of this style, too.
The world is also beautiful and changes dramatically depending on where the sun is at. Never played a game where the day night cycle had such a strong visual effect. Also liking the "fantasy detective" side of being a Witcher.
Fallout 4 also got it's hooks in me again, as the Vault Tec DLC gave me reason to fill my pockets with post-apocalyptic crap again. Good times.
So what are YOU playing and why?
