    I like to mix in taking some time to play some video games to get inspired. I am a huge Nintendo fan boy and love retro games (as well as making games in that style). I am currently playing Legend of the Mystical Ninja for Super Nintendo. What are you all playing?

    The last game that I played recently was Cuphead on the Nintendo Switch. I've been obsessed with its visual style and soundtrack.

    Man, Legend of the Mystical Ninja is great. I love playing those co-op!

    Right now I'm not playing much myself, too busy with study, working on my gamedev projects, and my music projects...
    I play Smash Bros. a lot recently when I get those spare free moments and I am still sporadically making my way through RDR2.

    I'm playing through some marathons as well as getting around to finally touching some of the games I bought during my eBay binge last year. I just finished Far Cry New Dawn and the Halo games. I'm currently going through Silent Hill Origins, Resident Evil 4, Splinter Cell 1, Mass Effect 1, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage, and Need for Speed Undercover. I also dabble in Skyrim for the Switch every now and then. Once I've finished these marathons, I'll have a few more to start, including Gears of War before Gears 5 drops, as well as Catherine in preparation for Full Body.

    Pathologic Classic HD. Want to finish it up before starting on the sequel/remake/reimagining/whatever. Doing my second playthrough as the Haruspex. Currently on Day 6 and things are getting crazy. Had to fight some thugs and sell some bullets for medicine.

    Eventually I'll get back to finishing FFXII and Trails in the Sky 2C...

    Currently playing the original Watchdogs... Had it since it came out, but actually forgot all about it! One of my friends is constantly talking about how good the Watchdog games are so I went to buy them on Steam and found I had them already!!! I understand why my friend loves it so much, tbh... it's VERY good... the thinking man's GTA. :p (Watchdogs: Legion looks amazing too, btw!)

    I'm also playing (off and on) Void Bastards... The presentation and humour in the game are fantastic, and it's great to pick up and play for a short time due to the rogue-like system it has of play/progress/die/repeat. Can recommend it if you haven't seen it before.

    I'm currently playing Heat Signature by Tom Francis. Its a pretty great top down stealth-ish heist-ish sorta game about breaking into spaceships. Its pretty fun but best in 20min chunks I find, which actually suits me pretty well atm.

    To be honest it's Auto Chess. https://rawg.io/games/auto-chess It's stupid DOTA addon and it is super addictive. Simultaneously I'm trying to finish RDR2, but I get easily distracted.

    Yeah I heard about that, it's gotten very popular.

    I can't stop playing Nuclear Throne. Such a good game. I first started playing it when the 99 patch came out.

    I got a Vive VR set for my birthday. My girlfriend, who isn't a gamer, other than angry birds, had her mind blown when she tried it and I'm pretty sure she likes it more than I do. So I've been playing it with her on her days off. One of our faves is a game called "Rush" where you play as a "wing suiter" one of those people that basically flies through the air with nothing but a webbed suit. She loves the feeling of flying through the air.

    For those who haven't tried vr yet, it's crazy how immersive it is, it really tricks your brain to feeling like you are in there. So some simple games that would end up being boring on a 2d screen are much more intense and/or enjoyable.

    Other than that, as far as games for regular display (monitor, tv) I recently downloaded the new Resident Evil 2 Remake. I've always been a fan of the original Resident Evil games.

    Currently RE4 (WII edition)

    What version/edition for Resident Evil 4?
    I guess it doesn't really matter as long as you realize you should be playing RE4 and Spyro 2 first.

    I'm somebody who prefers the original versions of games on their original platforms, so the GameCube version :D. I do own the PC, PS2 (SteelBook), and a digital version from the Resident Evil Archives as well, but I've never played the GameCube version before. I've only ever touched the PC version not long after its release because it was only $20 CDN, but it was a great deal of fun.

    I used to play the hell out of the Spyro 2 demo back in the day, so it's incredible to actually be playing the full version a couple decades later. I wanted to play the trilogy in time before the Ignited bundle's release, but that didn't work out, and it seems disappointing from what little I've heard about it.

    I'm currently stuck at the last level of Castlevania 3 (password only, no save states). Last time I got to the second Dracula form. Takes so long to get there and there's so little time to learn Dracula's patterns. :(

    Can't believe some people speedrun this thing!

    I play a lot of small games like a one go and forget about it... but since we're in GMS, I'll give shout outs to GMS games I've been playing in the past 2 weeks.

    GYROBOSS
    Is a lot of fun and a good time killer when you have a few minutes. Especially on the Switch. The simple art and music help it a lot.

    SKEIN
    Is a fair Gauntlet ish game right down to bleeding health and audio voices telling you they're about to die. It's a dark game that needs more diversity of dungeon styles in the 20 minutes each game takes me. The rooms are also laid out more like realistic rooms that are rectangular, so each room can fill up with a lot of foes that you'll need to clear out and in the early going, the stages are small.

    This, but Dota Underlords. Vastly superior in my opinion. Also osu!mania aka guitar hero on the keyboard.

    I'm playing a lot of Let's Go Eevee and Downwell right now.

    (I didn't realize until after I purchased it that Downwell was a Game Maker game!)

    Recently I've been playing The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall. Its age makes it both an interesting and a frustrating experience at the same time.

    Just got the Carrier Command remake via Humble Bundle. Playing it today! Last time I played Carrier Command was on the Amiga back in 1988. One of my all-time fav games.

    Space Engineers. Best game! The game with huge open spaces. The best sandbox!

    This is what I built in two hours, and right now I'm building a rocket to go into space for resources.
