Hi all and hope your recovery is going well! I was thinking (if there isn't one already) maybe making a Steam Group which we could all join. Gaming keeps sober and definitely has helped me deal with cravings so would be good to game with like minded people. I play all kind of games (mostly not v well) but feel free to add me, pm me for my username . I am happy to set up a group of people thinks it a good idea.

Stay positive Dean

I'm not sure if this offer is still up, but I'm in. I suck at games as well, but that doesn't stop me

I'd be down for this. I recently built a new computer so I could play my Train Simulators. I then started picking up other games as the Steam sales are so great. I don't play too many online games but if you want to hit me up on Steam, PM me for my username.

The game thread is fairly slow, I'm a gamer. I'm not some uber pro or anything but I usually do ok. I'm not that competitive and I don't really play any PvP but I do enjoy playing PvE online. I also like a good challenge.

Games has been my goto time sink during recovery. I'm currently playing darksouls 3 and am on steam also. I'd be down to play some games.

I'm a fan of Path of Exile also.

Hearthstone has been a great distraction for me!

I haven't played much, but currently playing Final Fantasy XIV. I am waiting for Ashes of Creation.

I had a sub to FFXIV for a long time but haven't played that time sink in ages.

Getting ready to start playing Destiny 2 next week though. Playing Diablo 3 in the meantime.

So excited to find this thread. I've been playing mostly CSGO recently, but I reinstalled Witcher (bought the GOTY version with the DLCs!) and am planning on replaying it. On my first playthrough, I only got 1/3 of the way through, but it was SUCH a terrible playthrough that I am just eager to do it right this time. (Made poor decisions.. and lost all my money losing at Gwent. HAHA.)

galaga / galaxian

I got galaga on the PS4 ... reminds me of my teen years at the video games arcade in the small town where i grew up. Led Zepplin and ACDC crankin on the juke box.

now i can watch high scores on youtube and get some ideas of how to get better. a bit of an aggravating twitch game but i still love it.

Fallout 4 has been pretty involved, not sure anything else compares to it.

I've been addicted to Destiny 2 big time. Makes it real easy to sit home all day on my day off and not worry about things.

It's a co-op FPS with some mild RPG, mmorpg, elements. It does have a PvP mode but it's primarily intended to be PvE.
