I got really into RDR2 for around 20 hours then got bored and stopped. I tried Apex Legends but I feel like you need friends to play that to have fun so I stopped. What over games should I try? I haven't had much fun with anything since PoE and LoL years ago. I'm thinking about Rainbow Six: Siege because I loved Vegas 1 and Black Arrow...

I need to be addicted to a game again otherwise I'll go insane. I have a PS4 btw and a low end PC

Funny cause I played that for years and enjoyed OSRS as well until they ruined it. Tbh I've moved on from Runescape, I started to feel pathetic every time I logged into it.

If you have a Wii U or Switch try playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

MMOs potentially make an adult neglect their children more so than a heroin addict.

Highly recommended.

Good suggestions here. I’d add The Messenger for some pure fun and Grand Theft Auto 5 for more fun. Mario Odyssey and smash Bros is great as well and why not play some Mario Kart 8 while you’re at it. All fun titles.

Play conan exiles, it's free on ps4 or just buy it. I'm sure it's cheap. I recommend joining PvE friendly server. There is currently a bug in single player that will a make the game much harder. I don't reccommend joining the the official servers and recommend joining the player-made open servers. The latter made the game so much easier and less frustrating. Also, there is info about the servers on the right side of screen which is very important to know.

Sekiro, if you can take a challenge. Best game of 2019 so far, imo.

By low end pc what you mean? If you have a semi decent CPU and GPU from the past 5 years you can play a lot of games . My previous GPU a 6 year old 7850 can still play almost every game out there usually at 1080p

Come to a gaming website to ask advice about GAMING and be told this? You people are exactly what's wrong with this place.

The reason I said it is because you're expressing signs of someone who doesn't really want to be playing games. I didn't mean to be a jerk about it. What kind of games do you like? You said you hate those two, but it doesn't give much to go off of.

Try VR and indie games. VR is fantastic, and some of the best games i have EVER played are current gen indies.

Well, you'll want good gameplay, so avoid any Sony games.

Nice list. How is Risk of Rain 2 and Slay the Spire? I've been looking at those miself..

@Litchie: Slay The Spire is fantastic. It's really easy to pick up and play but there's a ton of depth to it and the 3 classes are very unique.

Risk of Rain 2 is a lot of fun, even more so with friends. Good quality game for an early access title. I've unlocked 4 of the characters so far and my favorite is the Huntress.
