I need to get back into Kerbal ... I played it for a little while a couple years ago, but it was starting to feel like Tutorial Simulator than something I was actually playing myself :) Probably worth another look, though, and if nothing else would probably be a good distract-me-from-work game.
I love strategy. I bought GalCiv3 during a sale and liked it, but then Stellaris came and totally hooked me. Probably worth looking at again, but my priorities first are Endless Legend (now that I'll have a machine that can really run it) and Endless Space II.
CivV is my jam, and yeah, Civ6 still isn't there yet. Banished is awesome, I bought it at release. Colonial Charter is a must.
Cities: Skylines is another I bought at release (thanks to the pre-release let's plays), and I love it. I bought After Dark, but after the total rip-off that was Snowfall (which I didn't buy), I haven't picked up any DLC. I'm fine with expansions (I have all of them but the newest for Stellaris), but the ones for Cities have seemed wildly overpriced to me.
Meanwhile, I'm cautiously excited about Cyberpunk 2077, but given how long it's been in development will be cautious.
And I never pre-order :)
