I'm just curious what everyone is playing these days. I used to be a HUGE mmo addict, I mean playing WoW 18 hours straight on weekends and every night after work. That was for easily 3-4 years. Before that I spent a great deal of time in Asheron's Call. With the release of Rift, I took the approach of levlling at a normal place and enoying the game but even that has gone stale for me. I really got into Diablo 3 for a while and quickly got bored with it, same with Torchlight 2. I've bought quite a few games, none of which I've gone very in like the new Tomb Raider (which seems excellent), Metro, etc. The one game that hasn't bored me yet and keeps me playing is actually SimCity.

 

I'm actually looking for a good single player game that will take my mind off work and not be a ton of work but just a good shooter with a fun storyline and no complex character development. Resistance for PS3 was a good example as I really enjoyed the storyline, but I am looking for something similar on PC.

 

So, I guess I wonder what people are playing currently to see if I can get into what's being played now.

So it's not a new release but if you're looking for something old school design wise, Hard Reset is a good no-nonsense FPS to choose. Cheap too (Y)

Serious Sam 3 BFE. Starts out pretty generic railway shooter, but soon gets back to its open spaces and dungeons with switches. And his oneliners are cool, too.

Downloaded this last night, and I like it so far. Nice graphics and cool gameplay so far. I'm wondering why it's free...

If you haven't checked out Skyrim, give it a try.  I recommend waiting until the next Steam sell where the Skyrim Legendary Edition is <$30. 

 

I didn't get into the previous Elder Scroll games much.  But Skyrim sucked me in from the beginning sequence and before I knew it I had hundreds of hours of gameplay.  It isn't for everyone, but it is kind of in this single player MMO category (because it is so massive).  Unlike other RPG style games, you just play Skyrim and enjoy the story telling.  You can focus on the particulars of customizing your character but for the most part you just play and have fun.

Is it worth picking up?

 

Is it as good as the original Dark War (Assuming you played the original)?
