I play mostly on PC but occasionally I'll play board games.

MMOs and strategy games are what I mostly play on PC.

I've been playing Star Wars: The Old Republic occasionally. It's a good one! You get to explore a galaxy full of unique worlds.

Yeah, the Onslaught update sounds great! I gotta try it out.

Right now I am playing as a Sith Sorcerer. :)

Well, Skyrim has been my main game of choice lately but I'll probably be switching back to Age of Empires 2 pretty soon. Feeling like playing some wintry scenarios ! :D

Sith sorcerer is fun.

I've only played Skyrim once I enjoyed it, do you play Elder Scrolls Online too? Cleander.

I haven't played ESO yet, mainly because I just discovered the whole Elder Scrolls world this year through Skyrim. How is ESO different from Skyrim?

Its an MMO like SWTOR so theres more players and missions. I cannot play it for the moment for its a very very large download.

Age of Empires II Definitive Edition came out two days ago! :ymapplause:
I hear the graphics are updated, as well as some additional nations and campaigns.
Sounds worth checking out...

Oooooo! I'll give it some time to see what people think of it before I buy it. In honor of Thanksgiving, I have been playing the Pilgrims map/scenario on AoE II, giving Final Fantasy Record Keeper a break. Sort of.

Same here! I made my return to Age of Empires II (what I consider the undisputed king of video games) last week to let Skyrim cool off.
And I still have not tried Pilgrims!! :ymblushing: That is definitely gonna be my next map once I'm out of Scandinavia.
I think the most appeal the definitive edition would hold for me is the fact that the Serbians finally get their own nation!! (I'm really hoping their campaign is about Prince Lazar, who was the last Serbian ruler to resist the Turkish invasions of the 1300's and died in a desperate but spectacular last stand at the Battle of Kosovo. A very poorly supported family legend suggests that we may be his direct descendants! :-o )

This is very late since it came out months ago, but the FFXIV expansion Shadowbringers is so fantastic. Probably my favorite video game story ever. It made me feel so many different emotions at the same time. They have such talented storytellers. And the music is epic, as always.

@Arwen_Daeneri31 I'm glad to see someone else here who plays FFXIV! I am on the Exodus server.

Meanwhile, I got Pokemon Shield for my birthday. Years and years ago I played like the second game that came out where you start with Charizard, Bulbasaur, and Squirtle..... When I played that, I remember it was the time when looking up all the secrets on the internet was kind of a new thing, so I did a full walkthrough of the online suggestions, used all the best suggested pokemon, etc etc. And for me, it made the game not all that fun. This time around I'm doing my best to avoid looking things up, though I'm surprised at how much is coming back to me from when I played that other pokemon game 15-20 years ago.

Over the last two weeks my little brother and I played through Medal of Honor: Allied Assault and both expansion packs Spearhead and Breakthrough. It was his first playing Spearhead and Breakthrough. We had so much fun together, it just might have been driving everyone else a little crazy. :D Since little brother was on Christmas break from school, we didn't set a time limit when we played and we played through Spearhead in a single afternoon/evening. B-)

We might play through the early Call of Duty games next.
