ATM, i am still playing DCS: Black Shark 1, very fun to play, making own missions always trying to set vehicles around strategic points. Made last time SEAD/DEAD mission with SHORAD protecting "S-300", it was protected by 3 echolons of IAD starting with FOB's with infantry MANPADS and smaller APCs with even more MANPADs patroling around the city, wasted to many ATGMs to avoid having to entering their effective weapon range since they do quite alot of damage. The second echolon of ADS was Shilkas and infantry MANPADs well hidden near a city (had to make 4 attempts) to pass 2nd echolon the 3rd and 4th echolon were combined with enemy and own ground forces attacking each other had to performe NoE flight around it otherwise wouldn't surive the Strela-M vehicles and the 4th echolon by itself was the S-300 which i could finally use my KH-25ML (HARM) missile from relative short distance had.
Lot of fun playing DCS Black Shark especially with background of military understanding and of technologies, despite some are different from orginal or some bugs like TOWs being launched on move and the fact that i only have a relative cheap HOTAS with not so many buttons and have to use keyboard for lot of functions and doing under ground fire results often in death, but still lot of fun and would be much easier having HOTAS with more buttons to avoid to many unnecessary movements between keyboard and HOTAS.
I also try to next to install little mods like to exchange the UPK-23-250 gun pods with GUV-8700 (which are 2x GshG 7.62 gatlings and one YAK 12.7mm gatling firing alltogether around 14.000-17.000 rpm!
Not my screenshot of GUV-8700, haven't isntalled it yet.
Some other games if i am in mood like Dota 2 which is a MOBA/ARTS game a niche game,
Insurgency which is suprisingly good for the 14€ it costs on steam. I like that it has no real radar, hit or kill indication and overall much more punishing for mistakes or to offensive gameplay.
BTW hard to take screenshot in situations that are interesting (action) without dying.
Despite Arma 2 and GameSpy Arcade have shut down their service and therefor servers, no servers available so far steam needs time to compensate that and bring servers online.
Arma 3 is quite fun especially King of the Hills gameplay.
