I like the look of that GOG.

Anything on there like Ages of Empire or a point and click type game that you all can recommend?

Check out the free games section; might find something you like the look of. There are some solid-gold classics in there.

Only Age of Empires-type things on my list are the Settlers games, but they're not very action-packed. More about optimising supply chains and suchlike - very German. They even manage to take their porn games and turn them into turgid business simulators.

I don't know if it's age or that games are more complex now but I'm unable to play more than one game at a time. When I start to play a new game (or re-play) I'll play it until I finish before moving onto another game. If I play more than one game at a time I tend to forget what buttons does what. I used to chop and change my current game all the time on PS1 and PS2 but I assume it's because there was less complexity to the controls back then.

I don't really have this problem as games seem to have streamlined their controls somewhat in recent years. I don't have the attention span to play just one game at a time any more.

It is.

We should organise a whist drive for the old gamers like us. Our days of pwning n00bs are gone, I'm afraid.

I've been this way on the ps4. They're far too big and complex to dip in and out. Witcher, Fallout, Horizon and Mass Effect have all felt like collosal efforts to finish.

So i picked up Sniper Elite 3 earlier to try, it only cost me £7, so i figured id give it a shot since i've heard good things, kinda feel bad for this guy a shot tho, i didnt realise that a little marker comes up showing you where your shot will go when you are holding your breath(perhaps i should have read the tooltip rather than skip it like i usually do) Well, this ended up being the result..

I tend to bounce from game to game til i discover which one im in the mood for

I've missed out on a couple of the Xbox live free games (lego games that I want to download) as I get an error message saying not available in your region.
Is there any way around this?

I picked SE3 during the steam summer sale and I like it but it keeps crashing every 10-15 mins,

Yes mate.

Move to a different region.

Use a VPN or DNS proxy to log in to Xbox Live from a different region and have the games added to your account?

No idea if this actually works in practice.

COXCON was at the weekend or last week sometime im not quite sure, but it seems there was a rather unexpected bit of outrage when the youtuber TotalBiscuit was doing a Q&A and was asked as a joke by one person the meme question of "are traps gay?" Seemingly just as a joke but TB really didn't take it well and its spiralled out of control, the guy was kicked from the event, all footage about it is being edited out from their video's etc. Seems a rather harsh reaction when the guy was clearly just having a joke and a pretty harmless one at that. 

Must be a touchy subject for TB

Anyone else playing Last Day on Earth: Survival game on the phone?

Not bad so far. Seems like it could end up a 'grindfest' gathering crafting material.

I tend to avoid phone games, they all tend to end up with some kind of paywall
