    This is how I hope to spend my golden years! My father-in-law turns 80 in a few days so the wife and I bought him the Assassin's Creed Origins Gold edition. He has two Xbox One's, a 360 and the original all still hooked up. He loves plowing through a game in a week and taking it back to Gamestop to trade for another one. This guy has played a wide-variety of RPG's to include Witcher and Skyrim. He absolutely devours 100% of every Lego game ever made and doesn't understand why we haven't. I'm convinced video games are part of what's keeping him young at heart with a sharp mind. He won't friend strangers, but if you're curious, take a look at his profile: ERDLLD

    A man after my own heart. Have played all the Lego games as well. Love them. Currently playing Assassins Creed Origins and have chewed through Witcher and Skyrim. Has he player Fallout or Oblivion? Fallout series is great fun.

    He has played all of those RPG's. He's finished Fallout 3, Vegas and 4. He played all the Assassin's games, some multiple times. He and my wife loved the multiplayer piece of AC Unity and were disappointed that the next two after that didn't have any multiplayer.

    Similar to my joys of console gaming...although I also love my Switch :)

    Fallout 5 is looking awesome and my son has it on pre-order so guess who also gets to play :)

    Making my way through Assassins Creed Origins now as well.
