Hopefully this gets seen all the way down here....

I've managed to get sucked into the standalone STALKER "mod" Anomaly. Been playing the STALKER games on and off for years, they have a seriously huge rabbit hole of mods, very impressive considering how damned janky the games/game engine is. Anomaly essentially smooshes all three vanilla games worlds/maps together in an updated game engine, sprinkles a huge dusting of other overhaul mods all over it then serves piping hot. Happily it has in game options to reduce the balls hard difficulty and crippling economy of the world, but even tweaked it's still delightfully difficult.

I own stalker...but never really played it.  I've been playing Stellaris of late.  Usually on the "normal" speed as it's a slower game and lets me paint or hobby while the game plods along.

Jumped into a bit of Phoenix Point, a PC "spiritual successor" to X-Com, by the original creator I think. Fishy alien mutation virus emerging from the oceans to assault humanity, surviving splinter factions to assist or attack, that sort of thing. It's 3/4 decent, the presentation and polish falls just a little short but it's a fun enough game. Uses ballistics for firing weapons as opposed to just hit/miss dice rolls.

I bought Deus Ex:Human Revolution for my previous computer (W7 machine) but never got around to installing it back in 2012.
Replaced that beast with a newer one in December last year.   Something a little more modern than the 10 year old beast it replaced.
In April, after many weeks of no miniatures gaming, and feeling a cyberpunk itch that needed scratching, I decided to install the original Deus Ex on the new machine (previous time I played it was on the PS2, a loooong time ago).  Then I found the copy of DE:HR hiding on my dvd shelf and installed it.  Played it through a couple of times (there are 4 endings, but there's also one point where you have to make a [Save X] or [Save Y] choice which affects how other things also play out. 
Currently playing my way through Deus Ex: Mankind divided.  A little shorter than the prior HR, but there are mission choices you make that affect other game issues.

There's still another game to come (Eidos Montreal have been busy with other projects) that links the events of this and both Invisible War and Human Revolution to the original game (Original Deus Ex is set in 2052.  Human Revolution is 2027, Mankind Divided is 2029).

YES!

Piles of hours in Stellaris.  Playing a total warhammer campaign multiplayer also allows hobby time between turns.
