I gave Shadowrun a try once and on the first tutorial encounter, the game warped in a group of enemies after my turn ended on my flank and gave them a turn. I alt+F4'ed out and uninstalled. I will not tolerate such unfair and terrible design in a game and that happens in the tutorial, there's no hope it will get better.

This is kind of how I feel as well. I have owned it on PC/Mac for years (think I got it through a Humble Bundle thing) and I am a big fan of the IP (I didn't play D&D I played Shadowrun [and a little of one of the GURPS based games, forget which one] as a teen), but I just can't get into this style of game anymore. I installed it but no idea if I will ever get around to it (Breath of the Wild is taking up all my gaming times lately, got to find those Shrines).

I might fire up Far Cry 5 for a bit; my guess is it'd be fun for a while before Ubisoft Collectable Fatigue sets in.

I think I have Ubisoft Game Fatigue still after Assassin's Creed: Valhalla from like 2 years ago

I'm the same on Shadow Run and Balders Gate and similar cRPGs. I just can't anymore.

I'm mixed on giving Far Cry 5 my time. Maybe if I'm really bored.
I gave Battlefield 2042 another chance and regretted it.

I guess they did just add AC: Origins if I want to wander around a giant map collecting various things; I've resisted getting Valhalla just because I don't want the time suck. Eventually, it'll hit GamePass and I'll cave. I've never been a huge fan of the feel of the gunplay in Far Cry games, so who knows if I'll bother. I'd have to stop playing Deep Rock Galactic long enough to play anything else anyways.

I have been playing way way too much Vampire Survivors on Game Pass PC

I downloaded that to check it out and then ended up buying it on Steam because I kept losing progress on the GP version.

Haven’t lost progress yet but I’ve been tempted to get it on Steam and port my save game so I can play it on Deck

It’s $3. Just buy it.

I’ve been hesitating because if I can play it handheld I’ll end up playing it even more that I do now.

I haven’t seen any indication it’s coming to console eventually. It would do well there I think. My son would definitely play it.

I bought it on Steam a while ago, but put it down after half an hour because it seems like such a perfect Steam Deck game. If only my preorder would come through!

Game Pass version just seemed to have issue keeping my save game in sync between two PCs and I lost progress because of it at least twice. Steam works flawlessly and the Steam version even read my save file from the Game Pass version with no extra work from me.
