    Twitter tells me that today is Video Games Day, so what better day to start this topic?!

    Tell us what you're playing :)

    I started playing Far Cry 4 on the PC this week and really enjoying it so far. I thought it was about time I played a FPS after all the RPGs I've been playing recently.
    Ian told me about the secret alternate ending - being if you choose to stay put rather than escape at the very beginning of the game then you're free to go and the game ends :lol:
    Needless to say I didn't take this course of action.

    Just finished a very frustrating race online on Project Cars 2 and deciding if I want to download F1 2018

    Plus I just heard about this game, it looks great! When else do you get to play a game as a hole in the ground?!

    Hopefully I'll be giving the Forza Horizon 4 demo a blast later. :)

    Nier Automata - 2nd time around, this time with some DLC.

    Before I reach the DLC, however, I need to obtain a certain level.

    Enjoying it despite it being 2nd playthrough, have found some areas I hadn't been to previously.

    And Dragon Age, Origins (the first one) and Pillars Of Eternity.

    I played a bit more No Man's Sky yesterday evening, it's such a time sink. I do like exploring but I get a bit frustrated with some of the game mechanics. You can discover locations, and they get marked on your map, but there is no way to tell whether you've been there already! Bit frustrating to put in the effort to get to a place only to find you've already looted it :rolleyes:

    I'm playing Two Point Hospital, a modern take on Theme Hospital from the 90s. It's very similar and even has some of the same voice actors. It's basically a re-make with great graphics and new diseases.

    It's not an incredible game, but a fun game to dip in and out of :).

    Ooh I finished this a couple of months back, it's a great game! Need to make a proper start on Arkham City.

    Lol, yup! :lol: In all serious though, Skyrim is great and you should play it :D
