I've been playing a lot of Fallout 76

I personally find the game fun to play, and I won't pretend to hate it just because other people say it is bad.

Absolutely

Right now I'm playing The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker.

That sounds really interesting!

As for me, I don't have a lot of time to game but currently subscribed to World of Warcraft, so playing that when I do have a bit of time.

I do wish they'd introduce some other payment options for those players who work full time - something whereby you pay for a set chunk of time and it counts down the time you've spent playing until your current chunk has run out.  Ah well.

It was an interesting game. The only problem was that some of my questions didn't get an answer because they weren't made the right way. For example, "What do you think of X?" didn't get me an answer, so I tried "Tell me about X" and didn't get an answer either, and in the end I got a hint saying I should ask "What's the problem with X?". And sometimes not even the hint questions worked.

But I finished the game nonetheless and really enjoyed it. I'm not playing it again though, so I watched all the endings on YouTube.

Can you get WoW game cards at the local video game shop where you are? That's what I use; they come in 60 day chunks and then count down how much time is left on the Battle.net app.

What are you playing?

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and a dorky mobile game called Food Fantasy.

I've just completed Radiant Historia on DS. It's an RPG about time traveling and alternate timelines. There's also an environmental catastrophe, religious extremism, a sewer level, and a romance subplot (because of course there is.) I mostly liked it, although the random encounters got pretty tedious because there's always like a whole squad of enemies and it takes forever for everyone to take their turn.

I'm contemplating my stack of yet-to-be-played games and wondering if I should go for another RPG next or something completely different.

Hubby and I are playing 7 days 2 die together (with the Darkness Falls mod....super rough!), and just started the new season of Diablo 3 (I swear, every time we have been away for a couple seasons, something draws us back in...this time it was the D4 announcement).

We are also really into board games, so we just got in and tried out Cthulhu Death May Die (super hard, super fun), Architects of the Western Kingdoms (great 2 player as well as 4), and think we are trying Hate tonight (hubby and son played it, it's really only 2 players, we are borrowing it from a friend and thinking about picking up our own copy some day, so figured I needed to try it lol since most of the time soon it will be just hubby and me)

I missed this at the time it seems.

Our supermarket used to sell the 60 day game cards but they stopped; I do now work about one day most weeks from a different office where there's a video game store within walking distance though.

But what I really wish (and doubt Blizzard would ever facilitate) is that you could pause the game time following activation and only end up paying for what you've used rather than, potentially, activating the game time then it gets wasted if I'm unable to play again for the remaining 59 days (which could happen, with me).

Ah well.

Kind of like the old internet payment plans "You have 30 hours of game play, any time spent logged into the game will count this time down, but when you are logged out it doesn't count."  It would be a great model for many people with time constraints!

Exactly!  Could you kindly become a Blizzard dev long enough to implement this for me?!  Cheers   ;)

And now back (almost) on topic, I'm about to put the following on my Steam wishlist:
