I love the Elder Scrolls series.

I probably should find a different game to play and add a bit of variety to my entertainment, but I am really not too concerned about it. I am happy with feeding my Elder Scrolls fix.

    Oh, I agree. The only games I've played (single player titles) since Arena released in 1997 are TES. I did play WoW and RIFT from 2006 until 2013 (WoW) and 2013 until 2016 (RIFT). But I'm really still very involved in TES including now ESO.

    There's not much else out there that grabs me - though someone posted about Eastshade, which looked interesting.

    I got started with Morrowind, and by the time Oblivion came out I lost interest in just about everything else.

    Me too. Too bad people are concerned about TES6 because of how Starfield turned out. At least we have Skywind and Skyblivion to look forward to.

    I don't think I could play just 1 series of games, even huge ones like TES. It would be like reading just 1 series of books or watching the same movies all the time. I adore the Elder Scrolls series and will replay the older games as well as playing ESO, but I'm always playing other things in between.

    But I'd say if it makes you happy why not?

    Looks like I managed to pull another 1000 hours out of ESO this year across PC, XBox, and Playstation. Send help. :smile:

    As for Starfield, I completed the game to New Game+. I am done. It was great for screen captures, and the story was interesting, but I stopped at New Game+ after one play through. I'm done until the modding community takes over next year.

    I love the Elder Scrolls too. I've been playing since Arena was released. It's my favourite game franchise.

    But I love several other single-player franchises and games, as well. The SP game I had the most fun with this year was Midnight Suns. I picked it up on sale not knowing what to expect and it's now in my personal top 10 games of all time (and I've been gaming for more than 40 years at this point).

    As for ESO, it's kept my attention for a number of years now, and there are only two other MMOs that have done that, so I have to give credit to the dev team for creating a game that's given me hours of great entertainment.

    (To me, Starfield was a disappointment. Finished it, but I have no desire to play it again until a DLC is released.)

    That was kinda my approach to it - if the game is bad there's a chance of it being some sort of a modding platform again at least, but talking to some modders that went over from skyse it's not worth their time and it seems almost like a consensus already from various posts on nexus.

    Short form of "single player" game.

    I totally misread your post. I thought you were saying the game you were playing is called the SP game.

    I love this game. It has such variety it can be like playing separate games.

    Some nights I just murder, loot and pillage.
    Others...I make furniture and decorate my homes.
    Or do quests, or try PVP, or try VMA

    Or just run around farming.

    I've played mainly ESO since I first started playing it 3.5 years ago, after playing ES 5: Skyrim and then deciding I wanted more of the same, but during my breaks from ESO I've also played
    - ES 4: Oblivion
    - ES 3: Morrowind
    - Rise of the Tomb Raider
    - Dragon Age: Inquisition
    - Elden Ring (tough, but rewarding if you stick with it long enough to level up)
    - Horizon Zero Dawn

    Wow! Thanks so much for playing! And rest assured we have some cool stuff coming next year for ESO. So more stuff to fill your time!

    Since everyone else has been sharing other stuff they have played throughout the year, I through I would share as well. I normally run one other game at a time while also playing ESO. This year, I tackled some Starfield, Hi-Fi Rush, Sea of Stars, and Grounded. Gearing up to start the year with a new playthrough of Horizon Zero Dawn while knocking out some New Life Festival fun.

    The game was Midnight Suns. I'm not really a Marvel fan but I still really enjoyed the game. It was innovative and the gameplay was addictive. One of those "just one more mission" games when you look up and realize hours have passed.

    I'm same the way, Remnant 2's my side game at the moment. Briefly played SoS, I really need to dive into that one. I'm between that and the Ni No Kuni games next.

    ESO, as always, is #1:

    If you still have the characters you started with, and have not deleted any, you can use "/played" in the chat box to see how much time is on each character. The total of that is total time played. You may not want to see it. :smile:

    It's been 74,775 hours since the game's release on PS4 on June 9, 2015.

    Let's say you played half of all available hours EVERY DAY since release. (12 hrs per day, every day - nothing else) that leaves: 37,387 - doable, but not humanly realistic.

    Now let's factor what's humanly realistic - includes sleep, shower time, food, bio - and a part time job, or some form of chores where you had 6 hours per day SINCE RELEASE to play the game without ever missing one day: That leaves 18,693.75 available hours minus your 13000 hours as stated = 5,693.75 discretionary hours outside of the game.

    Or more fun to look at is 69.5% of your available time while not sleeping since 2015 has been spent in this game.

    Amazing doesn't cover it; I go so far as unbelievable!

    Well I am relying on the numbers from the PS dashboard so I assume they are correct. I do play almost every day but I didn’t start playing until after Morrowind came out.

    I have been retired for nearly 10 years now and I do choose to spend my free time doing various activities in game.

    Yep, retired since 2004 - 20 years almost! I spend between 5 and 7 hours a day in game - it's my retirement hobby (a LOT more fun than golf). Of course, I also have house cleaning, laundry, cooking etc to do so it's not all "fun and games". And in the evening I read (sometimes headphoned with music if husband has a really awful thing on tv - HATE tv, would love to dump the damn thing off the front deck... 14 feet down onto rock....)

    And I have no idea how much time overall I've spent in game. Why does it matter?

    Fable and Fable 2 are still my favs.

    So many great things about those little games. You could pet your dog and play fetch with him, and he existed in the world, rather than ghosting through the eso world as pets do. Oh and so many other things.
