    Just Put ACC on...only played it for a few hours previously as I prefer open wheel cars
    Put F1 2021 on.....tried it and had trouble getting things to work, ACC is so much easier to setup and it uses a mouse :)

    COD WW2.... tried on both machines and it just won't run

    Rage ... having a lot of fun with this on an easy level ( hey, I am not that good at shooters and I prefer to kill than be killed )

    FO4 - easy to come back to and this time my plan is to actually explore everything.

    I went to reload ACC, but my G27 wheel clearly had a tantrum after being stored for more than a year, so that's going to the tip.

    I meant to try this, but never got around to it.

    I'm not in lockdown either so ya know. Just my usual, finished AC_Odyssey (finally, 100 hours!), Gear 5 and Life is Strange True Colors. heh, no time for replays when that's how far back my backlog is!

    Last lockdown I played through Morrowind again.

    I used www.openmw.org and this modlist: https://modding-openmw.com/lists/i-heart-vanilla/

    Instead of MGE-XE with all the shaders and distant landscapes etc I just wanted more of a HD remaster true to the original - I was pretty happy with the result!

    OpenMW is excellent, rock solid, never crashed, performance was great and alt+tab'd without any issue.

    Same. Currently wasting all my PS5 power on Quake in my quiet evening hours when I have the chance.

    Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered. I hadn't played a COD game in years so figured I'd try out the nostalgia hit since I've lost the disc for the original game (back when physical media was still a thing). It was ok.

    Played through Control again. Much faster this time since I knew what I was doing but I was reminded just how great the setting is. The story is deliberately confusing, it doesn't make much sense on your first playthrough until you've got 10 hours into it and just accepted how weird it is. Would recommend.

    Another Nostalgia hit with Mass Effect Legendary Edition. This probably isn't worth it as the updates are pretty minor. Still enjoyed the story though and I was surprised how much I remembered.

    Black Mesa. I hadn't played this before, but I had played the original half life. Really good quality considering it started as a mod and the Xen level was great.

    Crysis Remastered, looks okay and runs well on a 3080 with DLSS but man the AI is dumb as rocks.

    With so many well regarded games available I prefer to try different ones rather than retread old ground. Have appreciated going back for some titles that I missed or overlooked and grown some interest in unexpected genres and developers.

    Rediscovered one of my favourites from 20 years ago
    Spy spoof "No one lives Forever" 1 & 2 Stealth/FPS
    Now abandonware (sort off) both games have been modernised by some dedicated fans and looks quite good considering

    Had very funny dialogue in some parts
    Bad guy: "With all these bullets whizzing about I think I've whizzed my trousers"

    You should join us in the Retro racing and Retro game of the month... much better than that high-res stuff. ;)

    I have 360 hours on ACC having just surpassed my og DayZ playtime on Steam :Paranoid:. We run league races just about every week. It's one of the best sims around atm!
    F1 games are more arcade than sim & always console first, so the experience is never great.
    Do it! It's awesome.

    I went back & played Sleeping Dogs all over again. Definitive Edition this time.

    I'm back in GTA5 online. It's filled with trolls, griefers and people using hacks. So pretty much a cross-section of the internet.

    thanks for that....the original Crysis was just about the best 1st person shooter I played and I may get the remastered from Steam if they have it

    I am coming from iRacing ( banned but I think that has finished but not sure I wany to go back ) and open-wheelers and the graphics in ACC just wipe the floor with iRacing

    Just learning ACC and brought the Bathurst add on ...no idea on how to set the car up but its Bathurst so its fun....Pity they dont have the Nurb Nord( green hell )


    btw: purchased the Mt Pan circuit for Asetto Corsa Comp and enjoyed that even if I am as slow as a rabbit running across the track ( Indy Cars on TV and splat )
