I only play Fallout 76 on Xbox anymore.

kleinbl00 got me to download The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077.

I played Cyberpunk 2077 for a while, and was generally enjoying it (while still being kinda lost on the controls), but then Keanu Reeves showed up as a ghost in my brain and started messing with things... and I ran out of time to play it.

I'm generally an hour-a-day player, 4-5 times per week. So even STARTING a new game is too much of a time commitment for me. Just getting the controls sorted out and getting through the back story takes several hours on games, and I just don't have that much time/focus.

So I stick to FO76. I'm mostly a settlement builder and vendor for other players, and play the game solo. I like to say, "I play Fallout 76 like a Sims FPS..."

Just to be clear, you ran out of time to play Cyberpunk, but you still have time to play Fallout?

Well, Fallout 76 is routine now. I can do a full run of the game and big events in an hour.

With Cyberpunk I'm deep into a story, nowhere to pause or save, and have to just keep going for 2-3 hours until the story ends, or lose all my progress. I realize I'm close to the cliff here, where I can just run missions and progress the story at my own pace... but I'm not there yet.

I get the feeling that the appearance of Keanu just indicates the end of the "training modules", and now I'm getting into the real meat of the game. Save opportunities may be more prevalent once I get into the "real game" part of the game.

But Cyberpunk is also very dialog-heavy... and I get interrupted a lot when playing games. That's a little bit frustrating, and probably explains why it took me so long to get through the training stuff, and to Keanu...

I do love the look and feel of the game, though! This is one I do want to put more time into.
