As cliche as it is, Geralt Has amnesia and they use that as an excuse for the player to impose his own will on the game world. Yes, you're playing as Geralt of Rivia, but it's your version of that character.

There are factions to manipulate and solid amount of player choice and those choices have their consequences especially if you try to stay neutral in the first game. The side stuff is very grindy because he's a monster hunter, but you don't have to do that stuff.

This series lacks conventional fast travel and there is a lot of back tracking. I would also recommend starting with the second game because the first game is pain in the ass to get running correctly even on high end modern machines.

If you can get past all that, you will enjoy some great writing set in a really cool world. The writing style reminds me a lot of Rockstar's games.

Binding of Isaac. I'm not very far into it though--and how do you get these different endings, just replay the game? Or does it have to be with certain characters, or challenges...?

Red Dead Redemption

Poker is addictive as hell in that game. You gotta know when to hold 'em. Know when to fold 'em...

Thanks! I'll give 3 a whirl. The second one, for whatever reason, just didn't grab me. I appreciate your thoughts on the matter!

I've been messing around with this weird F2P casino MMO thing on PS4. It's not very good, but I can't stop playing it.

Shadows of the Colossus. Just took down 8 of 16. I like it. I got the two pack of it and Ico. I'll be trying Ico after slaughtering the defenseless giants that did no one any harm.

Sonic Jump Fever (Android) Addictive game, but needs more characters to unlock. (Rouge or Omega would have been nice)
