    I finished Torment: Tides of Numenera today. It's good. Not as good as the original Torment was, but it's around the level of Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer. The world is strange, even if you're familiar with the TTRPG, the rules work a lot better in the CRPG (contrary to D&D), there is a fair amount of reactivity and the side-quests are mostly meaningful/interesting. You could feel that they were trying really hard to make a game like the original Torment, though, which I personally didn't like, but others might find the parallels awesome. As for the companions, they couldn't make me care for them much, but they were going for the strange theme, just like in the original. This is definitely one of the best "modern old-school" RPGs, which might not mean much considering the rest of the games in the genre, but still...

    I'm currently playing through Tales of Berseria. I don't like JRPGS in general, but after reading how this one starts and what it's about I gave it a try and I don't regret it. It's your typical JRPG, some silly jokes, some over the top moments, a couple of touching scenes, slow pace and lots of grinding if you're not playing on easy I'd imagine. There are very few side-quests and I don't really get the combat (which is my fault) but I can manage on easy. It looks like you're into a lot of Japanese stuff so I don't think it's that different, but I really like playing the "bad" guys.

    This is my first Tales game, so I don't know how many side-quests should be in the game, but there aren't many. There are mini games, however, but I don't do those. And honestly, I think I'm getting close to the end, so unless there is a free roam phase after the main story's conclusion with additional content there are really only a few side-quests. But the game is pretty long as it is, so I don't mind.

    Sniper Ghost Warrior 3. Just started it. Its basically more like a buggy/glitchy version of Far Cry game instead a tactile first person shooter. You have a safe house, you have to unlock new weapons and upgrades. you can craft items, you can go to sleep and wake up and what ever time you want like in Far Cry series, drive around in a car.Hopefully there are some updates to fix the bugs/glitches.
