What game do you play on the weekends? 

I am mainly a weekday player & i find on the weekends the quality of game play plummets enormously on the weekends.

Therefore i would like to find something alternate to play on the weekends? 
Any suggestions are welcome, i will try any genre of games & my PC should run almost anything,

Thanks!

Tetris? Pong? Viridi? :P

 

More seriously, I can think of a few; some appealing to a more niche player base.

  • For one, there's Crusader Kings II, Europa Universalis IV, Victoria II, Hearts of Iron IV, and Stellaris; games of grand strategy set in different time periods (medieval/renaissance/Industrial Revolution/WWII/future) with similar, but different gameplay mechanics. Crusader Kings II focuses more in character interaction for example, Victoria more on various aspects of your population, Hearts of Iron on equipment and division templates.
  • Then there's Stardew Valley which takes a completely different direction; more RPG-esque with a major focus on farming, and building up friendships with the villagers in the town adjacent to your farm. Pixel graphics though, so it might not appeal graphically.
  • For a more thorough RPG experience there's games like the Witcher series (3rd person 3D world), to Pillars of Eternity, Torment: Tides of Numenera and Tyranny for isometric old-school RPG feel.
  • If you want a gameplay experience closer to that of WoT, you could try Crossout, which is set in a post-apocalyptic world where you can build your own car and fight in matches similar ot WoT; both PvP and PvE. Also has a racing game mode.
  • For more traditional strategy you could try one of the Total War games I guess, or maybe Dawn of War. Don't play many strategy games myself.
  • MMORPGs; too many to count, too many which are little more than grindfests. I suppose that Elder Scrolls Online, Guild Wars (2), and Black Desert Online might be somewhat more decent, although they require a one-time fee to play.
  • Personally I also play a variety of (non-lewd) visual novels, but that is mostly limited to the evenings since they don't require much concentration and energy to play; making them perfect as something relaxing to do before going to bed; a bit like reading a book.
  • Although not a game, you could try (military) scale models; tanks, helicopters, airplanes, ships, cars. Plenty of choice if it strikes your fancy.

Single player titles are certainly immune to other player derpness. Witcher 3 is certainly worth a thought, with Skyrim/Fallout4 you certainly can spend more time modding them to your flavor than actually playing them. Elder Scrolls Online despite being MMO has massive single player content and unless you enter group dungeons or pvp with randoms they hardly can piss you off.

This depends completely on your desires, what kind of games you like and what mechanics you prefer in games.

 

Spoiler

 

There are way too many good games to be able to write it down here.
