I revisited Diablo 2 with the Path of Diablo mod. That was a blast. Hadn't played in roughly 14 years.

Mount and Blade Warband has a lot of interesting mods. A Clash of Kings is one of the Game of Thrones mods for it.

Banished is a small survival/city building sim.


I miss the days of custom games in the Warcraft Three the Frozen Throne community. Battleships, the early versions of Dota, and the plethora of tower defense games.

What do you Folks play when you are breaking from PG?

I play Dungeons & Dragons with friends. It isn't any of the computer versions, but the paper, pencil and dice version. I'm a serial monogamist when it comes to computer games. If my guild starts hearing me talk about another MMO I've trying out, they can rightly just place me in the inactive roster.

I'm playing a few other things, mainly strategies/rpgs. Like Battletech, battle brothers, mad games tycoon, stellaris, civ6, they are billions.
Will probably start playing some Panzer General (or similar) games again as I'm kind of starting to miss them.
Still on the lookout for some complex space strategy though. Really want to play something nice but can't find any that matches my desires.

Nevertheless I do have some days when I can only watch streamers and am unable to play anything :( I wish I had more determination to keep grinding skill levels in PG and to try and find some level ~40 gear.

I've a few go-to's

* Civilisation 6
* Cities Skylines
* Banished
* Total War (currently Warhammer 2)
* Occasionally Fallout 4 and Skyrim
* Diablo 3 for a loot fix.

I have been tempted to look back into Baldurs Gate.

I enjoy all sorts, but the majority are strategy. Off the top of my head:

- Crusader Kings 2
- Europa Universalis 4
- Stellaris
- TIS-100
- Chess
- Rising World
- Age of Wonders 3
- Wizardry 6 and 7 (about once a year)
- Neverwinter Nights
- Divinity Original Sin.

I generally like turned-based strategy and CRPGs. Normally, I manage to play a couple games at the same time, but this year I kept getting sucked into one fascinating, time-consuming single player game after the other. In roughly chronological order, the dubious honor of usurping my PG time in 2019 belongs to:

- Stardew Valley. After starting my dozenth farm or so, I think I've finally gotten over feeling embarrassed for playing a cute, happy game. It's got ducks who quack when you pet them, what else could you possibly want?

- Defender's Quest. I hadn't realized "Tower Defense" was a genre before that - fun introduction to it.

- Sunless Skies. I love the weird writing and the plot. Because I wanted more of it, I started playing the same company's Fallen London browser game which I still spend some time with now.

- Pathfinder: Kingmaker. The RPG timesucker to make all other RPGs look short. I think I'm finally getting close to the end of it now but I'm contemplating replaying. I really like how huge the world feels.

And because it's never too late to quote an old post:


Mount and Blade Warband has a lot of interesting mods. A Clash of Kings is one of the Game of Thrones mods for it.

It's been a couple years but I liked MBW quite a bit. I also played the Viking DLC which I think ended up being my favorite - maybe the lack of horses meant that slower combat felt more controlled to me? ;) I haven't really been tempted by mods for it though - the game generally feels crashy enough that I'm scared to make matters worse by installing a mod.

Mostly all I do right now is PG, Last time when I took a break I played BDO. But will be taking another break in September when Borderlands 3 comes out! Yes I know let me hear it.. I am a BL nerd :P

This is really one of the only games I play! I will dabble in the Unreal Tournament alpha but that's about it. I really lost my love for most console gaming and stick mainly to PC.

I may just build a new PC for a more smoother PG experience but that's it!

I'm fairly boring and work out of town welding for a rail road so I am gone away from home and internet for extended periods of time!

Usually, I read a book, or play Bridge, Texas Hold 'em, Mah Jong (the real one, not the tile matching version), sudoku, cryptograms, or whatever else I feel like.

I've been mostly playing Free Orion (freeorion.org), a free, open source, multiplayer (well, we play like one slow 'correspondence'-type game every couple months or so. There's also an AI) turn-based strategy (4x space) game.

I also play a little chess online.

I've been thinking about starting/joining a 1e or 2e AD&D campaign over roll20: https://app.roll20.net/lfg/search/?days=&dayhours=&frequency=&timeofday=&timeofday_seconds=&language=Any&avpref=Any&gametype=rpg&newplayer=true&yesmaturecontent=true&nopaytoplay=true&playingstructured=adnd%2Cdnd_1&sortby=relevance&for_event=&roll20con=

That's about it, sometime i play a bot game on League of Legends as a stress reliever, or dig up some old Dos game to play for a bit.

This is my primary game these days, so if I'm not playing PG, I'm probably doing other stuff IRL, and not playing anything. But if I am playing something else, it's either LotRO (I bought a lifetime sub back when it first launched) or SWTOR.

Ive played numerous games over the years, huge fan of every kind of game. Usually its only one mmo (grinding in two mmos at a time would be a nightmare to me). Now a days when im not playing PG i play mostly CSGO (i think is the most competitive and skillbased shooter of all time) or i play Magic The Gathering, but not the PC one, the fisical card game, lots of fun.

I have to agree with HardRock, diablo II has been one of the most influential games in my life and is still lots of fun till today.

When I get bored and want some kind of drive, I usually choose something from shooters or mobs.
Usually it's LoL, Dota, CS, something active in general!

For anyone who likes Idle Games, there's a fairly new idle version of Runescape that might appeal to some of you, called Melvor Idle. It's in Early Access on Steam, but can be played for free on the developer's website: melvoridle.com

I play Dungeons & Dragons with friends. I'm a serial monogamist when it comes to computer games. If my guild starts hearing me talk about another MMO I've tried out, they can rightly just place me in the inactive roster.

If my guild starts hearing me talk about another ME I've tried out, they can rightly just place me in the inactive roster. But I don't want to play other games. Dungeons & Dragons is an exciting game. I found a good site that provides information about the game https://dndguide.net/; it will be beneficial for beginners to read. This game will appeal to all people. It may seem not very easy to some, but the Internet will help you understand everything.
