    Hi @SpecGZero81 - & welcome to the community. I think you will really enjoy the 'Coffee lounge,' as there are discussions about gaming, tv, & music amongst other things, cats included. I'm a cat lover myself, & there are many of us here. :)

    Single player experiences as I'm not a fan of competitive online multiplayer.

    Genres are diverse and include:

    RPG, FPS, TPS, Fighting, Platforming, Action & Adventure, Horror and Sci-Fi.

    And what would you say is your favourite game at the minute?
    Up until about 5 or 6 years ago I was exclusively a console gamer but then I bought a decent PC (i5-6400/8GB 2000 DDR3 RAM/GTX1070/1TB WD 5400 SATA HDD/1TB Samsung Evo 860 SATA SSD) and a few months ago I built a new machine myself as I wanted to reuse my GPU and SATA SSD.

    So now my PC spec is i7-10700k/32GB 3000 DDR4/GTX1070/1TB Samsung Evo 970 Plus M.2 NVMe/1TB Samsung Evo 860 SSD/1TB WD 5400 SATA HDD.

    I also own a Switch, where I play exclusive titles like Kirby or Super Mario 3D World/3D All Stars or things like Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection.

    I have a fair few games on Switch and about 200+ games for PC I've bought from various online stores over the past 10 years or so (I had a dual core laptop prior to getting a gaming PC so had limited options for what I could actually play on it although I did play a fair amount of Star Trek Online at that point in time).
