Just finished I am Alive(PS3) Got in on PS+ a while back and played a bit and then returned to it the other day. I can understand the mixed reviews but love the old first RE retro feel of it and the scary lack of bullets. First time in years I've felt like replaying a game to try and find the characters I missed out on meeting/helping the first time round. Depressing story but I liked it.
Just finished Dishonored 2. It's a decent game. Nothing revolutionary, but still good. I'm currently playing Prey (2017) and I am really enjoying it. Definitely worth getting. Next after that I just bought The Witcher 3. Never played it but heard great things so that's my next game to play.
*cough*)) lately as it's my second replay of the game as i first played it back around when it was new in 2012 on PC. but i may hold off on finishing it until i upgrade my video card as i am sure this game will see a solid performance increase for me and ill be able to boost the games visuals (because i lack video ram on my current graphics card i can't turn textures to max etc) and get a higher frame rate.
i plan on upgrading my video card soon though (i.e. to a 'Geforce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB' (the best video card you can currently get for under $150 (they seem to float in the $130-140 range or so) and is power efficient to as it gets it's power from the PCI-E slot)) which will give a big boost to my performance on more recent games and enable me to play a small amount of modern games i want to play like GTA V/Mafia III/Hitman as i currently got a Radeon 5670 512MB card which i had since 2010 and cannot play any recent games even though my CPU (i3-2120) can even though it's showing it's age especially given it's only a dual core CPU and quad core seems to be better for more recent games. basically the Geforce GTX 1050 Ti paired with a decent CPU can basically run games with 1080p res at a higher frame rate with all or most of the graphics turned up from what i have read in reviews which is great considering my PC monitor is only 1080p anyways as i figure 4k stuff is not something i even care about. it's basically a great budget card.
once i get that 1050 Ti card my CPU will be the performance bottleneck instead of the video card, pretty much. for those who don't know what 'bottleneck' means... it simply means between your CPU and GPU(graphics card) which one holds the game performance back as currently my CPU is more powerful than my graphics card so the graphics card is the bottleneck but once i get that 1050 Ti card the CPU will be the limiting factor for me. still, i should be able to play pretty much any modern game at a decent frame rate even if i have to lower some graphics options etc.
side note... i have not really played any new video games since roughly 2012 or so mostly because i lost most of my interest in them but at this point considering i don't have to pay a arm and a leg to get back into playing games on the PC and there is a handful or so i want to play it's probably worth it as ill likely enjoy them enough and will give new life to games i played in the past (say around 2010 or so) as those games will run much smoother.
side note... while the GTA V has currently sold over 80million+ copies worldwide based on a article i saw online dated June 2017 i always thought the Mafia series is overall better as they got better replay value for me as i like the characters/general story etc more. i am not sure how Mafia III will fare against Mafia/Mafia II for me (my gut feeling says ill like Mafia/Mafia II overall more than Mafia III) but i think that series as a whole is better. still, GTA V should be a solid experience to play once at the least and hopefully has some solid replay value.
p.s. not long ago i was finishing up some of the DLC content in Mafia II. i plan on replaying this game in it's entirety fairly soon but ill likely wait til i get the video card upgrade as i figure with that ill be able to run every graphics setting maxed out @ 1080p with 60fps+ (i.e. basically a perfect experience with the game) where as now that game, while runs respectably on my current Radeon 5670 512MB card it's not perfect range and i gotta disable some of the less important graphics settings like AA etc to get better frame rates. but AA is pretty much not that big of a deal when your running @ 1080p anyways as all that does is smooth out jaged edges on objects in the game and on a older card like i got there is a solid performance hit.
UPDATE: video card upgrade to a Geforce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB on July 5th 2017 and it made a big difference on Max Payne 3 and other games i played in the past. even GTA 5 runs pretty well to (on MAX graphics with MSAA off @ 1080p i generally get 40-50fps or so and sometimes a perfect 60fps as the lowest i have seen it hit is low 30's according to MSI Afterburner. my CPU (i3-2120) is generally the bottleneck without going into details.) as i am still in the process of playing that.

From one of the fastest games(actually finished I am Alive twice in quick succession, love that kinda survival stuff) to one of the longest, Yakuza 5, I pressed that x button many thousands of times playing this, the Japanese just love their talking, and dancing and singing. I just wanted to kick ass and collect stuff. Very frustrating game but I will play Yakuza 6 when PS+ probably gives it to us in the next few years Sticking with Tokyo for me next game, another PS+ game called Tokyo Jungle
