September 2016 Community Poll: What Games are you Playing Right Now?

What are you playing? We want to know!

Article by Kat Bailey, .

Between Destiny: Rise of Iron, Forza Horizon 3, and FIFA we're definitely in the teeth of the release season now. So what are you playing?

As usual, we'd like you to post the three games that have your attention right now. And if you'd like to go above and beyond, maybe explain why you're enjoying them as well.

At the end of the week, we'll pull together the community responses and post a Power Poll along with what the USgamer staff is currently playing. You can find our previous Power Polls here.

As usual, the games you are playing don't have to be brand new. We just want a little snapshot of what our community is enjoying right now. Let us know!

This article may contain links to online retail stores. If you click on one and buy the product we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.

    Firewatch and Lumo, and Kirby's Adventure on 3DS when I'm in transit. Also feeling like going back to Stardew Valley.

    I started SMT4: Apocalypse, which is pretty cool for the first couple hours. Got distracted by way too much Destiny though (oops). I don't even think Rise of Iron is as good as Taken King, but it does feel more accessible. I've also been playing some Persona 5 when I have the energy to practice my Japanese.

    1) Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past
    2) Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
    3) Metroid Prime

    I really haven't played anything besides Dragon Quest VII during the week plus it's been out (it's sooo good!), but just before that I replayed Prime 1 for the first time in many moons and finally got Prime 3 out of my backlog. I'm particularly glad I went back to Corruption, I had a ton of fun playing that one - so much so that it may actually be my favorite game in the trilogy now.

    1. Dark Souls 3: I'm having a great time blazing through NG+. I'm opening up all the areas again to get ready for Ashes of Ariandel and trying to have npc and covenant interactions that I missed the first time, but I'm not worried about catching everything.

    2. Enter the Gungeon: I love this game and have a great time whenever I play it. The furthest I've gotten is to the 4th floor boss. I don't mind just playing for fun though and unlocking characters.

    3. Darkest Dungeon ps4/vita: This is a really special game. Super addictive gameplay and a Mike Mignola art style. Fantastic so far.Edited September 2016 by chaoticBeat

    1. Diablo 2

    I'm playing a single-player hard core character (no items waiting for him or her) with just the intention of beating Normal mode. That's how I roll with D2 nowadays.

    2. Rogue Legacy

    Pretty addicted to this right now. I'm not a fan of the art-style but I can't put it down.

    3. Shiren the Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate

    My first Shiren game. I got a +10 sword that has like 22 attack power. Anyone know how powerful an end-game sword and shield should be?

    I would put Dragon Quest VII in here three times, but that's just rude.
    Still, though. Dragon Quest VII.
    Completely forgot about Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice, which I also played a good amount of in September. Just waiting for that DLC case, now.

    Honourable mention goes to Leap Day, a smartphone game with a new level every day. It's a fun fifteen to thirty minutes each day, if a bit frustrating at times.Edited September 2016 by Hoolo

    1. Redout. It hits that F-zero fix soooooooo goooooood. Nevermind that it's probably gonna wreck me w/ glaucoma since I play it in a dark room and emerge with a headache afterwards...

    2. Everspace. I have a bunch of Roguelikes, but it feels like so much work after a hard day at work to play a game that tries to whup you in its core design. But the aesthetic and its semi-Descent controls has be hooked. Plus the dorky voice acting (if you see any youtube vid on it, you'll know) is kind of endearing.

    3. Bravely Second. Lvl1 challenge (turned off exp gain) and stomping through it with maxed jobs and equipment from a new-game plus playthrough. It's amazing what stat multipliers from abilities and job synergies can accomplish. My current base-level team can almost out-damage my previous game's lvl99 team just because of how much I've learned about the job system through this no-leveling limitation. At the second-to last critical-path boss now. Wondering how I'll take down the adventurer. The sequel is actually quite easier compared to Bravely Default's lvl1 challenge. Magic trumps all in this sequel.Edited September 2016 by drdoctor

    1) Dead Rising (Xbox One) - enjoying the remastered re-release, and once I wrap up my complete game I'll likely roll right on into Dead Rising 2.

    2) Castlevania (16-bit entries) - been working on a project of playing through all of the Castlevania series. Knocked out the NES and Game Boy games already, so I'm now knee deep in the 16-bit era of Super Castlevania IV (loved the timing of the New 3DS VC release a week and a half ago), Bloodlines (just unhooked the Genesis on Saturday after pretty well exhausting this one in the past week or two), Rondo, and SNES Dracula X. Finished up the first two of those, and now savoring Rondo through Wii VC before I jump into the next era of the franchise with old friend SotN.

    3) 7th Dragon: Code VFD. Really like this game, started it back in July but got a little sidetracked. I want to knock it out before moving to DQ VII, which is just sitting there waiting for me, patiently. I took like 10 years to finish PSX Dragon Warrior VII though, and I'm in no rush to try to blitz through the remake... though I'm thrilled it's finally out in English.Edited September 2016 by hamfighter

    I recently built my second PC, so I have been trying to justify the money spent by using it as much as possible. After much abstinence, I decided to get back into:

    1. WoW: Legion. I have spent too much time on this game to simply let go forever. I had to give the new expansion a shot, and I'm glad I did. To assuage the easing-back-in process, I decided I was just going to focus on one character.

    2. Recore. I am playing on PC because of the load-times on XB1. Although the load-times on PC are short, I discovered that one cannot start the game offline. One can technically play offline if one signs into XBL first, start the game, then disconnect from the internet and keep playing, but that does not make this an offline game. This was a huge disappointment. I had no idea Windows 10 games were like this, and makes me weary of purchasing them in the future.

    3. Titanfall. If I need some mindless multiplayer-action, I will hop back into this game.Edited September 2016 by themblan

    3. Lego Jurassic World (Wii U) - my 4 year old son's first video game. Can't say it's my favorite game, but I really enjoying playing it with him and hoping it leads to him being interested in other games.Edited September 2016 by ajhopwood

    1. Dark Souls 3 - Fourth playthrough. I just can't seem to let go. Other games feel insubstantial now...
    2. Street Fighter V - Its kind of a full game now!
    3. Rocket League - Cos it never fails to feel awesome.

    @guillermojiménez88 Pirate's Curse is just a fantastic game! I played on Wii U, its probably a little more comfortable with a regular controller.

    @chaoticBeat I've got two level 120 characters lined up for Ashes of Ariandel, really looking forward to it!

    1. Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander. I kickstarted this and played the beta. The full release... is still technically a beta phase just going by what's there vs. what was planned in the Kickstarter. The core gameplay loop is surprisingly relaxing.

    2. Metroid Prime 3. I LOVED Metroid Prime on the Gamecube but never finished it nor played the sequels outside a Target demo kiosk. I got Trilogy a few years back, blasted through Prime and Echoes, and stopped midway through Corruption. Time to finish what I started.

    3. SMT 4. Not Apocalypse, just 4. I had a save file in the Neutral ending after offing both end bosses and had vague plans to fight Red Rider before starting my alignment playthroughs. Needless to say I decided to get the alignment playthroughs taken care of so I can get 4A sometime next year.

    1. Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright - I'm gradually making progress, and I'm nearing the last lap of this course. Good thing because I still have to finish up Conquest and start Revelation.

    2. Uncharted 4 - The addition of stealth in most fights is helping me enjoy U4 so much more than the last few games, which were content with tossing too many waves of idiot fodder to waste my time with.

    3. Picross 3D: Round 2 - It's like crack. I really can't get enough of any Picross.

    When I left this off to play Cold Steel 2, I was trying to sweet talk myself onto an enemy spaceship but the AI wasn't trying to hear that. I have managed to steal everything not nailed down and making engines of mass destruction via Gadgeteering.

    1) Dragon Quest VI - My copy of DQ VII will be arriving this week, so I'm on my way towards finishing the last of the Zenithia Trilogy. It's been a incredibly fun romp and it feels like I'm never short on stuff to do with this sequel. Looking forward to seeing the ending!

    2) Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate - As mentioned in the last poll, me and my friend are slowly carving a path through this game as we both achieved Hunter Rank 5, while I've had to put my single player hunting quests on temporary hiatus while I finish up Dragon Quest VI. Still a thrill to play through!

    3) Final Fight (SNES, though playing on 3DS Virtual Console) - To be fair, I haven't played much of this game recently as I haven't had too much time to invest on going through a third game simultaneous. When I do find time though, I'm trying to see if I can beat the whole game with Mike Haggar since I've yet to achieve that challenge.

    Otherwise, I may squeeze in a full playthrough of 3D Classics Outrun in the near future in celebration of the series 30th anniversary.

    1. Final Fantasy Record Keeper - Yup, still keeping up with it.
    2. Bravely Default - Just started Chapter 4. I like the job system, even if I don't entirely agree with how it works. Story has been interesting. I've predicted some of it, but I get the impression those parts are supposed to be predicted.
    3. Final Fantasy VI: Brave New World - Played through it once, and found myself wanting to go right back in. Other than durability problems, I think it's added a lot to the game.

    I have so many new and old games in my backlog, but I don't have time to try any of them, because I've been trapped in the cage that is Final Fantasy XIV.

    Patch 3.4 drops in about an hour and a half (barring server maintenance delays), but I won't be able to take advantage of it for some time, because I just started it a few months ago and only just got to the start of 2.2's storyline quests.

    When I want to dig into something I pick up Deus Ex MD. I'm fairly tepid on the story but the world, art direction and the game play are all really strong.

    When I want to just sit and relax I put on No Man's Sky, and usually listen to a podcast. It's easy to zone out to.

    I took the plunge on Digimon Cybersleuth. I heard good things and it was on sale on PSN. It might supplant the others for a while. I also grabbed Jazzpunk.

    A bit late here, but I'll play anyway (though I doubt I'll be helpful in the event a tiebreaker is needed):

    1. Persona 5
    Couldn't wait, and my Japanese is just adequate enough to avoid getting stuck or being completely oblivious.

    2. Shin Megami Tensei IV
    NOT Apocalypse, mind you, but the original game. The plan was to finish it before Apocalypse came out, but it's been put on hold because see above.

    3. Dragon Quest Builders demo

    Apocalypse. The shin megami tenseiest shin megami tensei game in a long while is filling me with God destroying delight. Seriously, as a fan of 1&2, Apocalypse is thematically a return to form for the series, and the anarchy earring coupled with the greater difficulty setting from the start make it pleasingly unforgiving.

    Just finished up Trails of Cold Steel 2. Enjoyed it so much I didn't want to leave Zemuria. As such, I've started another play through of Trails in the Sky. But I don't feel like adventuring all the time. When I need a change of pace, I jump into Devil May Cry 4 SE. Sadly, despite playing the game off and on for years, I am still am not (and most likely will never be) a Dante master. So much depth in that combat system. Too bad the level design sucks. Thankfully, there will always be Bloody Palace. Lastly, just picked Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator from a PSN sale. Been wanting to learn GG forever, but since fighters require a lot of time (a resource I'm always short on), spending 60 felt like a waste of money. But for $25? Yeah, I'll take the plunge. Also, it's got a kick ass tutorial. Wish Capcom would take notes.Edited 2 times. Last edited September 2016 by NateDizzy

    I've got a stack of backlog games going at the moment but the three that are getting the most gameplay are:

    1) Moon Chronicles on 3DS; I gave Federation Force a shot and it got me itching for a slow burn first person game on a handheld and I'm really digging Renegade Kid's take on a first person exploration game.

    2) Rive on PS4; the Blaster Master feeling got its hooks in me something fierce. I figured I'd enjoy this one but nowhere near as much as I have been.

    3) Espgaluda 2 on Xbox 360; I've almost always got a shmup in my rotation and I've crossed the invisible barrier to start working towards a 1cc in this one.

    I've mostly been making my way through Etrian Odyssey IV.

    I appreciate its modified skill system; previous EO games had complicated setups where you would need to invest an absurd amount of skill points in order to unlock better skills. EOIV simplified that. You still need to invest skill points into some skills to unlock new ones, but some skills won't unlock at all until you reach Lv. 20 or 40, thus forcing you to experiment with other skills or learn how to use the ones you have. This also simplifies subclassing, which was a bit of a nightmare in EOIII.

    Also, while I miss the traditional Etrian Odyssey FM Synthesizer music, EOIV's soundtrack is just gorgeous.

    I don’t have time to make some detailed comments, but these were the games I spent the most time playing on September:

    God of War 2 HD remastered: Still an excellent action-adventure game after all these years. An enthralling mix of combat and puzzle solving, even if the storyline isn’t that great: 80% or so of the characters are assholes (including the protagonist). Then again, I suppose that’s Greek mythology for you.

    Xenoblade Chronicles X: After 400 hours or so devoted to it, I’m so close to the finish line I can almost taste it. I have gotten delayed due to tackling some side quests and affinity missions (plus, my tendency to do what at this point, has essentially become a LP on Miiverse).

    I also played a few other games, but didn’t really spent much time with them, at least when compared to these two.

    @chaoticBeat I'm still struggling with a good PVP build, both because I'm not sure what to use and cos I'm not very good! At the moment I'm having some success with a mixed build - use a massive weapon like Old Demon Hammer to get some initial damage, then switch to the Washing Pole. It's reach means that you can chase people down and hit them with running attacks when they try to heal. Sort of annoying, but effective - unless your opponent is good at parrying!

    Dragon Quest VII - Slowly making my way through on my commute to and from work. Super charming and fun, but also super easy. Still, I'm very much enjoying my time with it. It feels like this is the most I've seen a Dragon Quest game commit to it's world-building (pun not intended).

    Gravity Rush: Remastered - Downloaded on a whim and I'm glad I did! Uses movement in a really interesting way, I'm having a blast with it and am now hotly anticipating the sequel this winter!

    Dark Souls 3 - Still crawling through my first playthrough. I haven't seen a Souls game through to the end since Demon's Souls, so I'm determined to get through this one!

    Honorable mention: Dragon Quest Builders Demo - I never had much of a drive to play Minecraft, but this game hooked me right away. Spent 3 or 4 hours with it and went and preordered the full game right away. If you haven't, you should try the demo.

    Waiting on PS4 Pro's release. Quite an annoying game to play. Only reason I'm getting it is because it's 50 euro more expensive (because of the HDD size difference), so I might as well go for the extra power. Couple of games came out recently that are on my mind the most which is what makes waiting so annoying; Inside and Clustertruck. Inside seems to be a masterpiece and Clustertruck just seems to be unadulterated, pure fun. Probably gonna be the first games I get whenever I pick up a pro, ironically.

    My lack of a PS4 has made me go and revisit the humble little Vita though. I've really gotten back into Rogue Legacy and Persona 4: DAN.

    Finally starting to get good at Rogue Legacy and it's really just as addicting as ever, it's so good and utterly perfect on Vita. P4: DAN I actually hated when it came out because I didn't like how the icons were kinda hard to see flying across the screen, the weird control system....but it's grown on me. The control scheme being unique has been a nice challenge and the game is still kicking my ass on Hard on some songs, but I can feel myself getting better. Theatrhythm Curtain Call is a great entry point into rhythm games with its gentler grading system, but P4 DAN really doesn't hold your hand. Offbeat rhythms make it easy to miss notes and 10 or so misses and you've failed the track. Brutal. Getting really into it though. I love most of the remixes and I forgot the sort of visuals the Vita could actually pump out, P4: DAN has some really damn nice production value, stellar graphics. Also need to play story mode still haha.

    So yeah, the Vita everybody. Great little system.

    I also got Darkest Dungeon and it's a great, stand out indie game, but they need to fix the UI and its navigation. The UX of it is utter shite, please fix it or hire a UX Designer, I'll wait till the game is updated to continue it. Within the dungeons it's not too bad but outside of the dungeon hooooooooo boy the devs need to go back to the drawing board. Have they ever used a controller before? Cripes.

    Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice most of the time. When I'm not playing that, I'm doing a few missions in Metroid Prime: Federation Force.

    1) Trails of Cold Steel II- Pretty much all I've been playing this month. It's a little uneven (not sure I like it better than the first one) but when it's good it is THE BEST. Should be wrapping it up soon (and onto NG+)

    2) Darkest Dungeon- Yes I waited to play it on PS4/Vita and yes some of the control input/UI is pretty unintuitive. Still pretty cool.

    3) Armello- Pretty charming digital boardgame I've been returning to a lot for a year now.Edited September 2016 by TheWildCard

    I'm mostly just waiting for PSVR and the Pro, not playing much at the moment. Apart from some PS2 and original Xbox games, as I've recently added a considerable amount of games on those systems to my collection.

    1. Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright- just got a 3DS this summer and played through Awakening 4 times- now I'm searching for more.

    2. Super Punch Out!! -listening to Retronauts made me nostalgic (quel suprise!!). Trying now to learn the"counter-punches" Bob mentioned.

    3. Human Resource Machine- I'm a math teacher and I'm trying to prep some lessons for the Spring where I'll incorporate the game to teach formulas and programming in my algebra class.

    Trails of Cold Steel II. About 60 hours in. Towa best girl, all that. Genuinely haven't enjoyed a game and its characters so much in a long time, if ever.

    @CorneredAngel Trails' world building is probably the best I've ever seen in a game of its type, and Ouroboros is definitely my favorite antagonists.
