I did too. Nice to be able to alt-tab without the massive resolution jump. Kind of miss Pluggy, but they added stash sharing anyway, so that is cool.
You can see old graphics by pressing G
I like pressing F which is zoom and then G, blurry mess.
you can hold F and scroll mouse wheel to control levels of zoom
I still need more space but I starting to think I need no limits to make it work. I never want to throw anything away or sell things another class might use.

Previously, I bought very often, such as Assassin, because previously they came out very interesting, after a few parts, the meaning was lost and I did not understand anything, much has changed in terms of game management. And I was discouraged, I now play online in Dota 2, and it appeals to me more than any story games.
 
Yeah game pass for the win

what do you do if you stack three years of Xbox gold live using digital codes. They allow you to stack three years of service and then you convert the game pass and you will only pay one dollar a month for those three years. It’s totally worth it and that’s why I’m playing Forza horizon five now

For Nintendo consoles, I buy roughly three or four games per year. Pc games a bit more depending on the price of the games. Though I do want to complete my steam backlog more so than buying more pc games.

As a gamer, are you the type that likes to buy lots of games per year or are you the more conservative one who is dedicated to only a few games and only moves to newer titles once you've exhausted all resources out of your old games? Or are you in-between?
I only started buying games this year. Bought three games so far, wwe 2k20, minecraft and cookie clicker

Usually depends from how much titles in my Steam wishlist receive a discount. Eq. 4-10 games in year. Although really played titles are 2-3, because I have not much time for games. And most of bought titles are old games which I pirated in my youth. Sort of repaying an old debt :)
 
I used to buy very often, maybe I had more spare time to play, but now it happens maximum 2 times a month. Some month I even don't make purchases. Maybe I am getting old:(
Two games a month is quite a lot actually. LOL, "getting old", let me know how many you're buying when you're 64 like me, IF I'm even still alive by then. :LOL:

Buying 2-3 titles per year usually. Only Elden Ring last year. GoG "sold" me 2 games at 2021 for free, but their launcher refuses to work. Luckily a month ago, found that Ultima Underworld became free, so I've got it from another site.:)
