    I'm starting first playthroughs with five different characters (four have the same storyline but want to explore each character attributes) for "Dead Island: Game Of The Year Edition", also starting first playthrough for "Lollipop Chainsaw". Both for the PS3.

    Anyone here currently playing any video game?

    Nice :)
    I've dabbled in that myself, although in my case it's gamebooks. Never have finished one due to time though.

    To OP: Mostly a mix of Zelda, No Man's Sky, and Classic RPGs

    Most recent game I booted up was Honey Select, which has an amazing character creator that I used to get my current profile picture.

    As for 'real' games, I just finished Half Life 2 and am thinking about doing either the "episodes" or knocking out the first game's expansions. Probably play Blue Shift and find out what the hell was the deal with Barney.

    It doesn't take much time to make simple games unless you are also building the game's engine too (like in my case)...

    One of my personal favorites is Game Maker Studio now owned by Yo Yo Games. My very first time using it (with a little bit of guidance from my brother) with a tutorial, I made my first functioning game in less than an hour. My brother did his in 15 minutes.

    Currently playing "Blood" (One of the third of the holy trinity of build engine games, alongside with "Shadow Warrior" and "Duke Nukem 3D")

    Do you want to share some screenshots with us?

    That's really ambitious, SW. I hope it goes well.

    Playing now: Dragon Quest XI S on switch (demo), Sims 4, Stellaris. Thinking about returning to MMOs with Ff14...? Maybe?

    Hmm... I want to say so much, but I think we're already straying from the original topic of the thread.

    function @TriadSibling () {
    var moving = prompt(`Suggest we move programming posts to new thread`,true,false);
    if (moving) {
    var who = prompt(`Who moves it?`);
    switch (who) {
    case 'SecretWishes':
    case 'TriadSibling':
    default 'otherMod':

    It's cool. You got a dialogue going. Anything you're passionate about deserves mentioning and sharing.

    Moving = true
    Moving.target = http://ins-dream.com/forum/index.php?threads/who-has-worked-on-making-a-video-game.64931/

    That's technically a string variable, but i was worried the quotes would interfere with the link. Lol

    Maybe, but the IB uses a stripped down BBcode, so I don't think it'll interfere with it. Worst case just add some white space.
    but there is a bug with your coding. I'm getting a couple of errors from your post:

    Reference error: "Moving" is undefined
    Syntax error: property "target" does not exist of undefined

    Any ideas about that?

    I agree, but it is off topic for this thread. It will be less clutter and a lot more flexible for video game discussions to have programming talk moved to another thread. And then that way programming talk can do the same in it's own thread.

    Not totally sure, but i suppose i would have to define what target is, and of course define that "Moving" is a variable or something.

    Back to the topic of this thread:

    I am currently playing Assassin's Creed: Origins again. It's one of those games, where you often just admire the world around you, plus you actually learn some history while playing.
