One of you was playing it on Game Pass, and I thought I'd give it a try. It's fun. :D The faces are a little... odd, lol, but the game is solid fun.

For old school games I have to mention

Growing up, no video game started more arguments in my house than that one.

"Okay, no shooting each other this time."

"Deal."

(5 minutes later)

"What the?!"

"It was an accident!"

"Well, maybe your guy is gonna have an accident too!"

Now that the new season has started, I'm playing Sea of Thieves again.  I'm also making my way through Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, now that it's stopped crashing and wiping my save file every time I get partway through Chapter 4.

I'm still debating whether or not to get the new Saints Row. I think I've decided to not pre-order, and wait until the winter sales.

Favorite old-school games?

NES: Ninja Gaiden 1 and 2, SMB 2 & 3, and Baseball Simulator 1.000.  Though if I just wanted to fall asleep, the music in Nobunaga's Ambition would do the trick easily.

C64: Killed Until Dead, Frantic Freddie, Big Mac, Trolls and Tribulations

DOS: Sword of the Samurai, Hammer of the Gods, One Must Fall 2097, Colonization, Extreme Pinball

Still poking on Divinity: Original Sin 2.  It's difficulty curve is pretty steep, so I've been picking up as much xp as I can by looking for fights.  Not many easy ones out there. So its slow going.

Other than that just some Mechwarrior Online.  Still trying to get one of every mech.  I have a Charger and a Hellfire going at the moment.  Neither is a really decent build.  The Hellfire hits like a truck but seems really squishy and the Charger has the opposite problem.

Best old school games:
Wings of Fury and Sopwith 2.

Been playing more AC Odyssey, more NMS, and trying to get EmuDeck working, and then transfer files to it.  Also working on getting Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst working on Steam Deck.

Favorite Old School Games?  I could go with the classics, but besides those...

Spiritfarer. Absolutely beautiful, and surprisingly moving. Highly recommend it.

As for "old school", MechWarrior 2. It's 27 years old, and if it were a car, it would be an antique.

I'm still doing daily/weekly quests in Borderlands 3 I have great gear for my Zane operative character, need to upgrade the other 3.

Started Persona 5 Royal last weekend.  I'm only 5 or 6 hours into it still on the 2nd week of the game 3rd week in April.  I don't dislike it but I'm not into the setting.  The metaverse is cool, the high school drama I could do without.    I'm probably too old and if I mentioned it in public, people who know the game probably think I'm some sort of pervert.  Maybe that's the price of being an old gamer.

Back in the day my dad had a DEC Rainbow at home, played a sh*tload of Zork and back home we had a Kaypro luggable that had an ASCII clone of Donkey Kong.   No apes and it was monochrome but you had to progress through an ASCII map to rescue a princess from someone throwing things at you.

I looked it up, it's called Ladder

Favorite Old School? Well, depending on how strict your definition of old school then I'd say Zelda 1. This is the only NES game I've ever beaten fully. In fact, this is the copy I beat.

Hmm. What did I play this week? Kids were gone last weekend so I played some more Saint's Row 3 and I am to the point where I am running out of things that can be done before progressing the story. My "Respect" is at 43/50, I own all the properties and have done all of the gang attacks that can be done before doing the "Welcome to Steelport" mission. Last night I ran around doing the barnstorming spots and now trying to do stunt jumps. I was also nice and did some grinding in GTA V Online for my daughter. The new research mission from Agent 14 is really helpful for getting through those research tasks.

No D&D this week since kids were out of town.

QOTW: I'm going to go out in left field and say Number Munchers. What? I'm a computer programmer and I find math fun.

Mrs. Guilty and I have been tearing through Lego Harry Potter the last few weeks, and I've dusted off Zelda: Skyward Sword for the first time in a year. It's no Breath of the Wild, though, I may just play that again.

As for old school games (sorry for the lack of box covers):
PT-109(Mac): Tool around in a PT boat in the Pacific and Mediterranean theaters inn WWII. Lots of fun.
MegaTraveller 2: Quest for the Ancients (PC): Adapted from the Traveller TTRPG, I accidentally turned it into "Scooby Doo in Space." Had an absolute blast.

Currently working my way through Stray and Live-A-Live. I'm up to slums 2 in stray, and just started the cowboy chapter in Live-A-Live. I'm enjoying both so far. Really looking forward to the Tactics Ogre Re-remake, the QoL changes sound nice. I think I still have my PS1 discs in a drawer somewhere. Also looking forward to the Front Mission 1 remake, since it never officially came over to the states and the fan translation, while adequate, was a little weird IIRC.

My favorite old game is not all that old compared to some of the other games mentioned above, FF4. There are objectively better RPGs (FF6 or Chrono Trigger for example) but FF4 was the first RPG that I ever beat, and it just has a special place in my brain. LoZ: aLttP is also a favorite of mine, and gets a replay at least once a year.

I've been playing Celeste and Crash Bandicoot 4 because apparently I am a platforming masochist. The former is really amazing, the latter is entertaining enough, despite it being my first exposure to the series (was a freebie on PSPlus). I also got back into God of War, which I had started, then put down after the first chapter because the scope was a bit overwhelming, but then picked back up upon the urging of a neighbor and am now really enjoying it.

Came to say this and am really pleasantly surprised that someone beat me to it. We had a dozen or so IIe machines at my elementary school and it was that, Oregon Trail, the game where you're a fish and have to eat stuff, some science game where you had to grow a plant in a lab setting by adjusting different variables, and then one where you were a knight and there were some worms and uhhh....Think Quick! maybe? yep, google confirms:

Been playing a lot of Dinkum where my town looks like the old west (main street is basically dirt), but at least the croc problem is ameliorated and I'm somewhat wealthy as a result.

The quest for the free S rated freighter goes on in No Man's Sky.I've screwed this up time and again, but I think I have all my ducks in a row this time.  We'll see.

American Truck Sim is now in Montana, and so am I.  Not sure there are any straight roads in this state, but that's ok, it looks pretty.   Also finally got around to installing a 2TB SSD to disk hungry games like ATS work better.

The other upgrade I made was putting rollerblades on my home office chair.  Read somewhere to get the ones with brakes, and that was an excellent suggestion.
