All About hemoleech
I'm not really sure I can call myself a gamer at this time. Due to lack of money and priorties in other hobbies, I haven't been able to get any of the new generation consoles. I would love to get a 3DS, but $170 is pretty pricey. I remember when I bought my Sega Genesis back in 1993, and it was $100.
I buy all my games on Steam now, and I usually take advantage of sales. I only managed to get 2 new PC games last year. Legend of Grimrock, and Guild Wars 2. A friend got me GW2 in exchange for some artwork, but I just couldn't really get into it like he did. I really prefer single player RPGs because I can can get so much immersed into them. I go at my own pace, and MMORPGs can seem impersonal and rushed when you are with other people.
I'm still playing Skyrim. I'm going to absolutely milk it of all it's content and expansions. 450 hours so far and I've played 3 characters, and there's still dozens of hours worth of things left I still haven't done. Despite having the PC version, I don't use mods that much. I think Skyrim may very well be the greatest game I've ever played!
There's only one game I'm currently looking forward to that I'll be able to buy, and that's Starbound. It's very much like Terraria, and it has some elements that I've never seen in a game before that I'm really looking forward to. I love sci-fi games that are more than flying around in space.
I really want Pokemon X, but again, no money to actually buy a 3DS. I haven't even gotten Pokemon B/W 2, which makes me kinda sad. I'm currently jobless and I'm highly against pirating, so I won't be playing a lot of new games for awhile.
Technically it falls under simulation, but not all simulations involve building. If you look at Steam's Greenlight, more Minecraft-esque games are starting to pop up. There's just something about building your own stuff that people love. It feels personal and accomplished, and it encourages creativity.
I'm not personally a fan of Minecraft, but I do love world building. Terraria, Spore, Sim City, and Black & White 2 are some of my favorites. Truely customizable world building games like Minecraft are still rather primative, however. There's only so much data your computer can handle. Even Dwarf Fortress, a game that is completely ASCII based, takes up a ton of memory. I think world building has huge potential though, once we can get around software limitation barriers and learn how to optimize graphics for it better.
I think after getting Skyrim for Christmas last year, I don't really have any huge urge to get any more games. I've spent over 350 hours on Skyrim and I don't see myself stopping soon. The game isn't perfect, but it sure keeps me playing for hours on end! Also mostly because I can't afford to keep up with the new generation of consoles. Steam is pretty much my main way of obtaining new games.
I haven't really explored Vanguard much yet, but I am really enjoying Hearthfire. I love crafting and building!I wouldn't mind Bethesda adding more fluff like this in a future expansion. Fishing with a rod is one big thing I think Skyrim needs to have and even more food recipes, although there are mods that add this kind of stuff.
I'm excited to hear more about the new add-on, Dragonborn. Apparently it takes place in Solstheim, where a lot of Dunmer moved to since the Red Year. We'll probably learn more about the lore!
