    So with people potentially having a lot more home based free time than normal what titles are people looking at indulging their time into? Any long-campaign games that you've owned but not had the time to play which you are now using the opportunity to play? Any newer titles which were "maybe" buys which are now more inviting to purchase as you've more time?

    Playing a lot more VR stuff.

    Also spending more time playing Elder Scrolls Online. Maybe I will finally get a character to max level!!

    Oh Forgot, I am playing Pillars of Eternity for the first time. Great game!!

    Once I've finished Xcom 2 I think I'll make a start on Divinity Original Sin 2 as I'm currently working my way through my backlog.

    No doubt I'll still find some time for Civ 6 and Path of Exile too!

    Ironically my work has become even busier right now so I am having less time to play. That said, I am trying to complete the tomb raider trilogy right now. On the last one now. Then it will be into resident evil two.

    Naturally I'll be playing Civ6 too.

    Kingdom Come Deliverence. On Xbox One X. Game Pass. Free. But. I'm not sure. Load times are a pain and the controls are clunky and completely unintuitive.

    Not sure I'll stick with it.

    Next!

    Plague Inc. should be the perfect game.

    I'm guessing Half Life Alyx has had a huge impact on VR sales :)

    Yeah I've been playing Ori and the Will of the Wisps on MS gamepass. Might have to consider redownloading SW:BF2 for some pew pew fun

    Honestly, I've wanted one for ages mainly for development and learning for the kids. I think if you want to teach kids about things such as the heart and you can put them in one it will really sink in.

    I've not seen much on Alyx, and one of the high ups there saying "we are not far from the Matrix" kind of put me off it. Daft as that sounds.

    Have you played subnautica or Red dead 2? Both great single player games.

    Watchdogs is free on Epic still I think EDIT: It's free until 3pm today

    Good call on Watchdogs, adding it now! I actually got Subnautica when it free a while ago and completely forgot about it - thanks!

    I've been playing Dying Light. It's a really excellent game. Very highly recommended.

    Just got the whole dark souls franchise for £30. Looks like I'll be losing my mind very soon

    I am looking forward to the new Destroy All Humans remake. Loved playing it when it first came out so hoping the remake plays as well as the original.
