What's everyone playing these days?

I'm a pretty avid BF4 player myself.

I sometime go over and play BF1, Fifa 17 and GTA V / Arma 3, gaming is a good way of spending your rest time

99% of my gaming is on iPad these days...all I have time for, and a good way to kill time on planes.
  • PanzerCorps is awesome if you liked Panzer General
  • Starbase Orion is great if you liked MOO
  • Twilight Struggle is a fantastic board game adaptation, but it's complicated.
  • I play Bloons TD5 a lot
  • Just started playing through old D&D RPG classics - Baldur's Gate I at the moment
I swear there are more but don't have my iPad here atm. I read Pocket Tactics and most of my new game recommendations come from there.

Not a fan of BF1. It's like BF is wanting to become more COD-like in the gameplay, as well as take away features from server admins. I refuse to purchase the game for this reason.

The PC playerbase is quickly dying off in BF1 and returning to BF4 (some servers I run are proof of this as well). I sure hope EA's next release is better or I fear the end of the franchise.

Arma 3 is a good game. I enjoyed playing on an Exile server a community I hang out with ran for a while. It's very time consuming and the engine sucks, it's like there's always input lag, but somehow the gameplay is fun at the end of the day which is what counts.

I got WoW from day 1, still playing it, apart from a little Diablo 3 nothing else really. I don't have the time, WoW just allows me to get lost for an hour with no urgency or need to do anything particular.

Lost for only an hour? Besides being too cheap to pay $30 a month for 2 people, I had to stop playing cause I got lost for a month. But that was also to make sure I got my $15 worth.

No time these days to game. If I do get the itch it is Desert Combat and Desert Combat Final.

If WoW paid me $15/mo to play I still wouldn't play it. Hate that game...

I still play Homeworld series and as MMO lineage2. At times i go for some spectrum games just for nostalgia. It brings me accurate memories of things I was doing almost 30 years ago.

Just last week my friend from school bought himself an early version spectrum with tape recorder and joystick from Ebay. He got fed up with emulators and wanted to get dirty...

Mine was CIP 01, red instead of blue on the "keyboard", broke a month after was bought, they fixed it by soldering wires all over the place, but lasted me many years of heavy use. There was no AC and in the house I was getting some 35 degrees, it was so hot I used gloves, but didnt give up :) Eventually died because the eeprom got old, I could fix it, but it earned it's sleep...
My grandmother bought it when I got the third ordered by exam marks in the highschool (I was 14, "oh tempora!") costed like 3 average wages back then, my parent were totally upset I wasnt the first and totally against it, but we both survived and managed to run away :)

I had the little rubber keyboard one first. It was a struggle moving to a normal keyboard after you got use to all the shortcuts on that thing.

Code:
10 print "Hello";
20 goto 10;

Haha, first time i played nibbles on a brand new 286 i seriously struggled with the keyboard... Wow, those were real keyboards, weighting some Kgs, the clicks used to wake up people in the next room, still, my aunt was so thrilled the noise is so much less than her typewriter...
