The Witcher 3.

I get to ride a horse through beautiful countryside and also kill monsters.

Warcraft 3 Reloaded here. DP wants me to raid again in WoW (I have certain experience) but screw that. Prince Arthas is far more important smile

ill be back on rollercoaster tycoon at this rate too

SimplySteveRedux Tue 24-Mar-20 21:08:41

DP is playing through the rollercoaster tycoon games, and going "wheeee" whenever she makes/tests a ride. I wish I was joking...

Theme hospital. Found my old disk when having a sort out.

Theme hospital is on origin, roller coaster tycoon is on steam. I'm also a sims player. You have excellent taste in games OP!

Lilmissmissy Tue 24-Mar-20 21:17:26

Im back on sims!

torthecatlady Tue 24-Mar-20 21:21:40

I've been on theme hospital, definitely going to consider rollercoaster tycoon next!

Ha! I got it a few days ago. Used to play all weekend when I was 13 and used to swap expansion packs with my friends grin

I wasted 4 hours on it on Sunday. Have no idea where the time went and my sim is still a single bum in a shitty job grin

Same OP, jealous that my sim can leave the house 😂

AndNoneForGretchenWieners Tue 24-Mar-20 21:25:52

I'm playing it too, having recently bought a new laptop that doesn't die every time I try to load it! I didn't realise that I could download all the old versions from Origin that I had previously or that it had been updated. I'm happy!

I still pick up the Sims 4 since well before this all kicked off.

Until I realised that when my sims had babies and then toddlers, I was basically just redoing my entire day once I’d got my actual kids to bed 😂.

I started playing Skyrim again a few weeks ago- DH sits and watches me like he’s watching a movie and it’s a lot of fun.

Auntieaunt Tue 24-Mar-20 21:27:51

Apparently it’s on sale on origin with expansion packs.

What expansion packs do people recommend?

SimplySteveRedux Tue 24-Mar-20 21:28:49

* I started playing Skyrim*

Great game. I must replay Baldur's Gate actually...

Literaryseed Tue 24-Mar-20 21:33:12

Pokemon ...

Iminaglasscaseofemotion Tue 24-Mar-20 21:37:44

I haven't played the sims since I was about 12. Wish I had it 😭

Soubriquet Tue 24-Mar-20 21:38:59

I wish I could play theme hospital and roller coaster tycoon but my laptop doesn’t have a disc drawer

I was able to download the sims through origin though.

Damia Tue 24-Mar-20 21:41:26

I'm playing rdr2 online. Riding my horse around killing bad guys lots of fun!

Apolloanddaphne Tue 24-Mar-20 21:52:34

My DD and her friends, all about age 23, have rediscovered the Sims.

TerribleCustomerCervix Tue 24-Mar-20 21:58:26

What expansion packs do people recommend?

The pets one is fantastic, and Get Together allows you to live in apartments which is a lot of fun!

InescapableDeath Tue 24-Mar-20 21:59:31

@soubriquet two point hospital is the sequel basically to theme hospital (same developers and same voiceover lady) and on pc and console.

PennyNotSoWise Tue 24-Mar-20 22:11:27

I've never been off Sims blush My guilty pleasure.

TaliZorahVasNormandy Tue 24-Mar-20 22:44:18
