    Essentially I'm married with kids so open world games are not allowed in my Steam Library anymore.
    If you haven't played them already: both Pillars of Eternity and Tyranny are good stories, IMHO.

    I would add Transistor, A Story about my Uncle, 39 steps.

    Didn't play Banner Saga, but Sunless Sea has a fuckton of stories inside. It's quite a gem, but your captain is a consumable. To actually experience all the stories you'll need lots of captains. Good part is that when one does inevitably kick the bucket they can leave a legacy in different forms so the loss is easier to stomach.

    It's lots of fun and the zubmariner expansion is excellent as well, brings in lots of lovely stuff.

    Map is partially procedural, some ports are static and some change places between playthroughs, same with points of interest. There is an overall story arc progression depending on you, but lots of stuff are directly under your influence. It is also very immersive.

    You may want to have a look at Out There Omega Edition, albeit this one is more like FTL (but more story rich) and overall less story rich than Sunless Sea.

    Jones: as someone who has played and loved both Banner Saga and Sunless Seas, SS has about 100x more story than Banner, and every word of it is excellent writing. It's like reading a pick-your-own-adventure novel, but in a video game. And yes, so incredibly immersive. Combat is not as good as Banner, though - play SS for the stories.

    I never finished Walking Dead S2. It seemed good, but it also confirmed that I really didn't need to know what Clementine did next.

    If you're alright with indie side scrollers, I'm really enjoying Oxenfree atm. Has a cool dynamic conversation system that's a bit janky but when it works it really makes the dialogue feel a lot more natural than usual.

    Anyone playing the Guild 3 early access? Was looking forward to there finally being a new Guild game but reading reviews on Steam makes it sound like it's missing a lot more features than "balancing & polishing" should imply.

    Was avoiding both early access and reviews until it's properly released. It took Guild 2 a year or two and a mod to really get decent.

    Does anyone have a good list of games from GoG? I'm looking for solid single player experiences that you can play on a laptop. Games that can be completed in 20-40 hours, but not sandbox.

    Been VERY bored, aimless and unhappy with games of late.

    Tried to play a few MMO's, realized how futile/pointless those games are, and dropped them again quickly.

    Plan to try and go back, and finish Pillars of Eternity. Would be the first RPG I ever finish (so bad at that), and would lead nicely into PoE II when it drops.

    Other than that, really feeling pretty shit about games in general of late, uninspired and uninterested.

    I fear that may be it.

    Although available time for gaming is at a lifelong minimum right now, so that's a factor too.

    Active MMO Player hangover too.....been MMO whore for 20 years now. Today it all feels like such a waste of time.

    I almost exclusively play coop games these days. Most MMOs are basically shallow coop games with irritating other people in chat, after all.

    Been going hard at grim dawn again ahead of the xpac next month. Staying up overnight on weekends with the baby so the wife can sleep leads to lots of grinding

    Took last week off work to play the Path of Fire expansion for Guild Wars 2. No regrets.

    Started playing rocket league again.

    I'm terrible, but it's a ton of fun. The Autumn update came out, game and dlcs are all 40% off.
    Totally not Victoria Stecker forgetting his password and not having access to his work email.

    Heard Total War: Warhammer 2 is good. Walking, talking backstabbing rats and dinosaur people. What's not to love?
