    I've not played it. Got it for about $10 on Thanksgiving Night, though.

    I think the non-linear adventure aspect is the main reason why I loved Skyrim so much. I could spend literal weeks just crafting potions and leveling up my alchemy and still be having a blast.

    Witcher is very solid. But I'm not hooked like I was with Skyrim. At least not yet. I loved how everything was wide open in Skyrim including your character. With Witcher you're picking up an established character with an established personality/history, and I've never played any of the other games before. Sometimes the long cut scenes are annoying too. I'm still very low level though. Maybe I'll get more hooked as I progress.

    I generally prefer more simple pick up and play type games (platformers, indies, fighters, sports, etc.). I don't play a lot of 40-60+ hour story driven games. And I'm not super into fantasy either. Liking Skyrim as much as I did caught me completely off guard. It's a game I never would've picked up if not for all the rave reviews piquing my interest just enough.

    Skyrim was a let down for me in TES universe.

    Never played Skyrim. It has issues on the PS3 so I stayed away and it's not cheap on the PS4 so I haven't bothered.

    Same. I loved Skyrim's world but the dungeon puzzles and NPC enemies became too easy to figure out and kill.

    War Thunder just added France as a nation you can select and research planes for. It's what I'm playing for instant gratification whereas I go to EvE Online if I'm sitting down for a few hours.

    I finished Ni No Kuni today. Solid JRPG. A little on the kiddie side, but don't let the looks and dialogue fool you, it can be pretty challenging and frustrating, especially the caves/dungeons.

    8.0.
