Some titles I'm currently enjoying, and looking forward to

There are a few games that I currently play, but also a few I'm really looking forward to.

Here's what I'm playing these days:

7 Days to Die - The Zombie/Crafting/Survival/Sandbox/FPS/Stealth game that is only still in Alpha, but is extremely fun even in the early state it is. It is ESPECIALLY fun when you do it co-op with a buddy! I blogged about it a few weeks ago, check that post here

Diablo 3 - Patch 2.1 just launched today, and I'm looking forward to jumping back into it. I like how Blizzard has revived the game from the sad state it was before version 2 and Reaper of Souls launched. It's a much better game, and it's getting better with every major update!

GTA 5 - I dusted off the Xbox last weekend and fired up Grand Theft Auto V again, and man that's still a massively fun game. Trevor just took over a strip club as his base of operations, so what's not to like right? This is also a major game that I'm looking forward to launching on the PC - I know I already have it on the Xbox, but I'll definitely get this for PC as well - better graphics (even though I'm seriously impressed with Rockstar for milking the Xbox 360 for all it has - the game looks amazing for such an old system!) and a more densely populated world.

Robocraft - another free to play game on Steam - my buddy told me about this, and the only time I play it is when I join him, but damn what a fun little game! You build your robots from the ground up. You kill the other team's robots. You take over their base. You don't respawn. Lots of fun!

Here's what I'm looking forward to in the upcoming months:

Dragon Age: Inquisition - I loved the first Dragon Age game, and never played the second one (thank goodness, I heard it was terrible!). From what I've seen about the 3rd one though, it looks amazing! I just hope EA doesn't screw it up by adding micro-transactions - in my opinion the bane of all gamers' existence!

GTA 5 for PC - can't wait for this to come to PC - I like my Xbox, but I've always been a PC gamer first!

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor - I'm still a bit skeptical about this one, but it seems interesting... Will keep my eye on it...

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequal - you can play as Claptrap, and you can buttstomp enemies. What's not to look forward to! hehe...

Civilization: Beyond Earth - I've always liked the Civilization games, and this one looks even more awesome! Can't wait for doing "just one more turn" into the night!

Limit Theory - My jaw drops to the ground every time I see what Josh has achieved. The man's a genius! A fully procedural space simulation game with all the bells and whistles! I think I'm even more excited about this one than Star Citizen.

There are so many games coming out in the near future, the 6 I mentioned above are at the top for now though. It's exciting again to be a gamer.

What are you looking forward to?
