I'm trying Dauntless. It's a bit a monster hunter-like mmo that got released recently. No idea if it is any good yet since I just started. :p

As for my skyrim playthrough, I'm grinding through the thieves guild quests rn. I want to finish these and the assassin guild before moving on to the expansions.

I do the thieves guild almost every time I play! What expansions are you doing? Are you on PC? Have you installed any quest mods? I've done Moonpaths to Elsweyr, various pieces of the snow elf stuff in Qaxe's Questorium, Bruma, Clockwork City, Grey Cowl of Nocturnal, and a few others.
Going vanilla right now for blank experience. Excepting two mods from their cash shop that were being given away. (materials and nyx hound).
I have all the xpacs but so far I'm only doing mainland. After thieves guild and dark brotherhood I will do dawnguard and dragonborn.
Will definitely do moonpaths in my next playthrough but still looking for mods otherwise. Feel free to recommend your favourites :p

Bruma was meh.  I think the crime settings glitched because everyone in the province tries to murder me everytime I go there and they're constantly sending bounty hunters and I don't even remember what I did. It's not letting me do the speechcraft/guild things either to chill it out, and all NPCs seem to be affected, not just guards.

Clockwork city won a bunch of awards.  It was cool. Qaxe's has a ton of cool stuff I keep randomly discovering.  Rebuilding Helgen is supposed to be really awesome too.
Alrighty, will add them to my list ^^

I reached a boss in Dark Souls 3, I won't spoil which one, and hit a total brick wall. I spent a few hours grinding to a higher level and although I still couldn't beat him, I was doing a lot better. Then I found out the joystick on my controller was falling apart and I couldn't grip it properly. The joystick you use to direct your dodges.

So now I have to take a break while I wait for my new controller to arrive.

I dug out Horizon again. I played maybe 20 hours when it came out two years ago but then more or less forgot about it.

Now I started over and am now 25 hours in, and I completely agree with everyone that this game looks great and the combat and the monsters are just fantastic. I agree that on objective grounds, this game really deserves to be rated very highly.

I just don't find it very interesting. Having these barbarians live in a world of skyscraper ruins and giant machine beasts looks cool, but I find characters, story, and even setting very generic and uninspired in practice. Combat is such huge fun that it totally makes the game worth it, but other than that it feels rather anemic.
