Guess who's still playing Overwatch on Zarya.

I've been playing Magikarp Jump on my phone and it's really cute and fun.

It's kind of the best. Magikarp has been one of my favorite Pokemon for years.

Picked up Darkest Dungeon.
And in the first quest, I managed to kill my Crusader by stressing them into a heart attack...

Picked up the Witcher 3 again, along with the "Hearts of Stone"-expansion.

This time I'm gonna finish this game, I swear!

'Jack the Reaper' by Dream's Bell.
It's sort of like the Kirby games, and you play as a chibi grim reaper.

Little Nightmare.  Check that out. The best way I can describe it is a platform survival game with elements of stealth set in the Tim Burton universe.

I've seen Little Nightmares, it looks incredible. But I highly doubt they've made a creative collaboration with Tim Burton.

After I read your comment LTK I re-read mine and see what you mean.  I meant to say its aesthetically like something from a Tim Burton movie.  Mea Culpa

I thought that was what you meant but I wasn't sure. The atmosphere is definitely a bit Burtonesque, but I think it goes more into body horror.

I've been playing Oxenfree. It was much scarier and unsettling while I had the subtitles turned off, because there's a lot of distorted voices in the game and straining to understand them adds to the alienness and uncertainty. It also means that if I don't turn on subtitles I have no idea what's going on and it just sucks trying to play like that so I turned them on. Anyway, it's really well-written and I like it.

I've been trying to push myself out of my game-comfort zone. I can't just keep playing Zelda and Dark Souls over and over again.

I mean, I play a lot of stuff, but I tend to "hide" a little on those games sometimes.

The Steam Sale supposedly starts today, I might get something to help. Maybe a shooter, maybe some strategy stuff.

On the other hand I've had the first 2 Witcher games sitting on my library for years now.

Dark Souls can quite possibly be played forever, as long as there remain other players.

Anyway, can you tolerate the quirks of classic CRPGs? If not, you'd do well to skip to the second Witcher game, which is a far more streamlined experience than the first one. The first is built on the Neverwinter Nights engine. It's a good game, but a number of questionable design decisions make it a lot less palatable to a modern audience. The Witcher 2 is not what I'd call accessible either - the first instances of combat can be ludicrously difficult - but it's much more in line with modern design sensibilities and has an amazing two-branched plot that I don't think any game has replicated since.

I played some of the first Witcher a few years ago. I can handle the quirks, but my stupid decision to play it in the highest difficulty meant I eventually reached a point where it got excessively frustrating and I ended up stopping.

I really don't want to play the second or third games before playing the first one, though.
