    I needed a game which was turn based, low on sys req. I went through my backlog and decided to play some Shadowrun Returns. An RPG set in a sci-fi world, with cyberpunk and magic/fantasy.
    This is the first text as you start a new game. I think we have a winner.

    I have the original Shadowrun...that required Windows Vista to play. My box says "Play with Xbox 360 Games". Wasn't this the first...or among the very first...that was supposed to be cross platform?

    Dark Devotion for Switch. It's a pixel art rogue-lite dungeon crawler. Very dark. It's on PC too.

    According to wiki, it was the 4th game. There have been video games since the early 90s. The one you're talking about is a first person shooter. Shadowrun Returns is a turn based game similar to the first two Fallout games, only more linear, at least so far.

    I'm finding GRID events with the stock cars (the type they use in Indy 500) really hard, so far in one race I just had to come 16th and basically just cross the finish line so I could just finish the event, every other event I can race competitively in (so far). I've only played the muscle and import categories so far (my card hasn't updated with my latest play through tonight yet).

    I played the original shadow run on sega genesis...

    I really didn't enjoy that game at all and it really gave you no clear idea wtf you were supposed to do... and the difficulty on it was sky high which i'd say is a good thing, but in combination with no clear objectives or direction (since you could quite literally run around anywhere you wanted provided you didn't get dropped in a hit or 2).... made for repeatedly having to start from the beginning rather irritating.

    You should also look at Battle for Wesnoth (free), or Temple of Elemental Evil (something like $5). Both are low resource turn based games. Transistor is a fantastic game too. More tactical than the RPG atmosphere of the other 2. Not sure what the requirements are, but it's one of those game that has been released on mobile, switch, and PC, so it can't be too bad.

    I am still yet to get an Arcade in GTA V, and then there will be all the upgrades I have to do to the business, so yeah, it's back to grinding things out again.

    *sigh*

    I am still playing Shadowrun Returns and I have to say this is a lot of fun. I love the setting (sci-fi and fantasy, in the future) and look who I just met, half brother of Eminem or something.

    That's a bad idea.

    And I just finished the game. Shadowrun Returns was different from what I was expecting. While there were some side missions, some freedom of choice in how you handle things, it was a far more linear and streamlined affair than I had in mind.
    Good game, fun, I am glad I played it.

    Finished Grid (2019), I have all gold trophies in Career plus I have all the achievements save two. Time to go into the Season 1 content now. :)

    (would have had oodles of money but had to buy a bunch of cars for one of the achievements)

    Are you going to move onto the Dragonfall expansion next, or wait a bit?
