    Aye, routine would be great but I do shift work so a routine is stupid hard to get into.

    I wouldn't put it like that, but I am finding that come the end of each day I no longer feel like nothing has happened. Just doing a little something each day feels more fulfilling.

    Well, I only remembered this thread because of an e-mail notification that it exists.

    Just not playing games at all seems to be helping. I've been doing a lot more of the things I want to be...

    Kicking the habit

    This is probably the best place to ask this question.

    So I spend way too much time on my computer (lots of us do!); playing games, piddling around on the internet, tweaking settings, generally...

    I'm really enjoying some parts of the story, in particular, travelling through the fade and touching on different fears was a nice touch.

    Then the mechanics come back and bore me. Go fetch this,...

    I tried to like D:OS, I really did, but the writing, pacing and quest design all got on my nerves too much for me to get anywhere far. I wasted so much time on that game.

    Yeah, that's where Bioware's tendency to increase difficulty through sponging and immunising their enemies seeps through.

    I wish I could think of a really good reason not to recommend Shadowrun, but I can't. It's flaws are really more minor niggles.

    I'm finding some of the characters quite interesting - particularly Solas and ... Sera. I'll just have to see if I can reconcile them later in the story. The combat is becoming less tedious with...

    Yes!

    Combat cover and LoS mechanics are a little janky, but definitely "a good game".

    I agreed somewhat with an opinion piece I read that said they preferred to have their character effectively randomly generated in the appearance department. I tried doing that myself.

    It does have good dialogue, and there are indeed options for how to talk to people. It was really enjoyable to role play a certain personality, and there was often enough choice to pick something...

    Truly divergent stories so you feel your actions have consequences beyond unlocking the next quest in a single chain. That, combined with exploring/wandering that isn't boring.

    Dragonfall really did have some decent writing. It was a bit pulpy, but that kinda goes with the territory. It's a shame that it's still fairly linear, and that there aren't many games similar to it...
