Why is that? Not enough time or it just doesn't interest you?

Most games are simply not worth the $40-$50 price tag that comes with them to me. These days, I play MineCraft about 90% of my gaming time, and am totally happy with it.

Before I took a -> in the knee, I used to be a programmer.  I played a lot of Skyrim.

Yes, I know the A10 Tank Killer...one of my favorite military aircraft!

 

And, that is a very nice joystick and throttle! But that price tag...that is the only reason I become the keyboard/mouse control expert -- I keep finding other things to spend my money on first lol.

 

Yea, that joystick was effeminately not the cheapest alternative to a keyboard/mouse setup (Actually, I think it's the most expensive lol) and I'm not going to say it was worth the price, but at least I don't have to worry about replacing it...forever. lol

I really only have a select four or five games I play. And i'm normally pretty frugal about buying them. I tried Minecraft and was not a real big fan of it. I thought it was just a hyped up game that was only popular because little kids were able to run it on their windows 95 desktops.

I would have played skyrim alot if it wouldnt have crashed everytime you added mods.

I was the same. Then I started playing, and seeing some of the things that can be done with redstone, etc. I play MineCraft like a programmer, building contraptions and gadgets for my amusement. None of my stuff looks pretty, though :)

I've been a Battlefield person for a number of years.  Unfortunately, as with most games, they are more concerned with graphics than the gameplay itself.  The gameplay in Battlefield 2 blew away the gameplay in BF3 and BF4.  If they simply kept the gameplay of BF2 and updated the graphics, most people will be happier than they are with the current iteration.

Have you ever tried Garry's Mod? There's alot of interesting addons which you can download include one that adds a Arduino type functionality where you need to program an object in C++ to have the object do something.

I still play Battlefield 2 for Project Reality :)

I've played Tekkit a couple times, which I think includes Garry's Mod. At this point in time, to be honest, I'm still having fun with some of the things that can be done with a standalone Bukkit server and a few well-picked mods. I already managed to hose up one server by figuring out how to game the presence of both mcMMO and Jobs plugins to make an absolutely stupid amount of money. One of these days I'll seriously dive into Tekkit or FTB and try to REALLY make a mess of things :)
