KSP

It's hard to find quality in the ocean of video games out there.  Once in a while you will find something from day 1 that you continue to follow and play. 

As time and resources permit of course!  That being said you won't find me banging away on little blocks avoiding a walking, cactus-penis. 

You may however find me tethered to the television via a legacy console from time to time.  Hey!  Don't judge me, I go outside to play too.  Viva Nostalgia!

You also have your thinkers.  You know the ones that you start out playing because you like puzzles.... and you end up needing to go play outside because it's easier than continuing the game?  There are some games I just didn't beat.  I know!  Who woulda thought a puzzle game would puzzle me? How puzzling!

Then there are the rare gems.  Precious, beautiful and if you let it, quite time consuming.  But it's SPACE!!!  Seriously this is fucking beautiful... but don't let it fool you.  It's not easy.

KSP is a game where the players create and manage their own space program. Build spacecraft, fly them, and try to help the Kerbals to fulfill their ultimate mission of conquering space.
You are never too old to do anything and that includes video games.  Everyone needs bubble gum for the mind and it's better than most crap out there.
