Euro Truck Simulator 2 - been playing this since start of lockdown, and having worked for a shipping company it's kind of cool to drive the trucks for once!

In retro terms:
Wonder Boy 3 Dragons Trap remake - I adored this game on the Game Gear, showed Sega could complete with my beloved Nintendo. The remake is gorgeous, the music is amazing, and it stands up well today.

Rugby 2011 - I love rugby union more than football, and this is a decent little game, bar the lack of player names for All Blacks. All sorts of plays are possible, from silky smooth running rugby, to tuck it up the jumper and just bash up the field. For £1 second hand, I'm super pleased with it

South Park - Stick of Truth - just played it an hour or so to get to the first quest and like the look of it

Some Street Fighter Alpha 3 Max on PSP, cheesing it as Shin Akuma.

As ever, I want to play as Mika, but I can't be doing those 360s on the PSP d-pad...
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

You should, its awesome. Quite tricky though (especially the Deeper Dungeons).

I've started Chrono Trigger again on the SNES(mini). Can't recall where I had got up to before I gave up on it last time, but I'm a few hours in now, and i'm finding it a real joy. I must also stick with it though and not drift on to another game!
