What are you playing now? [2023]

Was playing Baldurs Gate 3 but needed a break from it something that didnt need me to think too much, a bit of run and gun so I chose Enemy Front since it was in my backlog. It's a competently made ww2 shooter that uses cry engine it's ok but very by the numbers but it lacks charm it does everything ok but nothing outstanding.
 
Ghost of Tsushima is gorgeous, and the amount of effort they put into having near 0 UI to get in the way of looking at it is commendable. But it's not as fun as I was hoping. The open world is mostly a waste, there's no exploration because some stupid bird comes and just points you directly at 99% of things to find and there's a bunch of Ubisoft style "liberate this thing" whatevers that are pointlessly boring.

The story is well written, if pretty standard "Samurai movie" fare, but there it's still just "follow this invisible line, kill these guys, ok you're done until you repeat the exact same thing next story mission". Considering there's like, 5 enemy types total, and while the combat might be fast and control well it just isn't that deep, I'm surprised to find myself just stopping with half the playtime I put into Forbidden West.

Maybe next game they can have stealth that's fun at all. Seriously I can't remember seeing enemy AI this dumb, it's worse than Skyrim, who thinks an arrow in their dead buddies head "must have been the wind".

Been playing through Half Life:Alyx again, after having some friends over for a VR party and remembering how much fun it is.
Even with an OG HTC Vive, boy does it ever give the 3090 a workout.

Internal rendering resolution approaches 4k per eye at 90hz.
Apologies for the screenshot as it's a capture of the translucent fpsVR overlay, but the fun part is the 17.1GB of VRAM in use.

I really need to play this. I started it a few months back but only got an hour or so in. I do recall being very impressed by the immersiveness and detail though.

Interestingly I recently started TLOU on PC and given the 2 games have a very similar art style (I would go so far to say that TLOU is basically just HL2 in 3rd person with a little less sci-fi) then drawing of graphical comparisons came naturally.

This is only from memory mind you but by my reckoning Alyx is the more visually impressive game, but I couldn't say whether that is because its VR or despite it.
 
Just started The First Decendant.

So far so Warframe\Destiny\Outriders\Anthem - if it wasn't for the extreme monitisation and hard locking map progresss behind uber bosses it would be excellent. As it is it's fun until it isn't.

Much like Genshin Impact, a game that would probably be fantastic as a traditional title being ruined by the F2P model.
