Quantum Break
One of the rare games that I've bought on Steam... (stupid Microsoft!)
Bastion
Played it once on my friend's laptop, now giving it a shot because I love the game concept and feels so nostalgic
Oh and Yu-Gi-Oh! Worldwide Edition: Stairway to The Destined Duel on GBA (emulated)
Played it because I'm interested in Yu-Gi-Oh!'s mechanics recently, and people told me that it's is the best game for beginners

After finishing my grand adventure in Witcher 1-2-3 world, I want to play a more 'light' RPG, so I'm now playing Final Fantasy 1 on PSP.
It seems like this version is one of the best remakes Square Enix has made, while the graphic and the UI is improved the feeling of the original has still remained.
I chose my guys to Fighter/Thief/White Mage/Black Mage as a typical one. They now got a ship and sailing for a while.

Personally, I found that GBA version (on which the PSP version is based) to be too easy, if we don't count the added boss fights or the final boss. They did improve class balance (in particular, the Thief class), but they did so by making the party more powerful, but didn't make the enemies stronger to compensate. Also, you level up too fast (something that, to my understanding, was partially rectified in the PSP version).

In any case, the PSP is probably the second easiest if you don't count glitches, as apparently they slowed down leveling slightly from the GBA version, mitigating one problem with the version. (With glitches, the PSP version is easiest, as there's a way to get an item that casts Flare for free early, and a way to get the super-powerful weapon that normally requires beating the new superboss in the most powerful form to get before the mid-game.) For FF1, my preferred version is the PS1 version, since it plays like the original with some bug fixes, and Easy Mode still doesn't feel too easy (the leveling rate feels reasonable, though you do end up being a bit higher in level by endgame).

For Final Fantasy 2, however, I actually consider the PS1 version to be the worst version that I've played, due to the fact that spells actually level up more slowly than in the original (and slow spell leveling was an issue in the original). On the other hand, at least inventory space was increased, but still not to the extent of GBA and later versions. If you can read Japanese or are OK with using a translation patch, I would recommend the Famicom original over the PS1 (or WSC) version. (Be aware that the Pixel Remaster of this game has a rather nasty bug; if an attack capable of inflecting a status ailment hits, the status ailment is guaranteed, which can make certain fights unfair; if you get ambushed by a group of 4 Cuerels (or whatever they're called), you might as well just reset.)
Thank you for the detailed explanation. I didn't know such a difference existed.
I want a relaxing game, so lower difficulty than in the original is not a problem for me.
I'll play FF2 too after finishing the first one. Perhaps it will be the PSP version too. As a native Japanese, I can naturally read Japanese and won't need an English fan patch (lol). In fact, I am playing the FF1 game in Japanese.

Runescape

Generally I disdain such Skinner box games but I made an exception for this one as I was invited to try it by my friend. So far I'm having quite a lot of fun with it even though it definitely is one grindy game. Still, it's definitely better than most games in MMORPG genre, real money shop isn't too obtrusive and I even spent around 8 bucks for 14 day subscription so I can get a real feel for it. I just hope I won't get too hooked up on it, as it's definitely heroin among video games, LOL.

All things considered I'm pretty sure that after my 14 days worth of subscription I'll be back to playing single player games as multiplayer was never my thing.

Getting close to finishing the main story in Witcher 3, then I'll start on the expansions.

It's also been a while since I played Bioshock, so I decided I would give it another shot and see if I like it any better.
Well, dtgreene's comment about FF2 was correct.
FF2 on the PSP version has the same problem, which makes the progress of MP and magic skills slower compared to physical skills.
I had to grind my guys and girl that only use magic in battles, and when their MP became zero, have them go to a city and rest. I used to do it several times.
But after destroying a flying battleship quest, I don't need such artificial grinding. It seems the character's progress became more natural.
