No Man's Sky lets me build a settlement on a stunning, completely traversable world (which I named after my best friend) and make friends with little animals. I like escaping to it at least once a month. Also, how the distances between planets within the same star system can be so vast that even using pulse drive it can take a few minutes. In those moments I put my ship in gear, kick back, and browse Twitter on my phone, much as I imagine my in-game character would be.
Fallout 4 landed with a resounding "eh," but to date it is the first and only Fallout game to click with me thanks to the settlement system. Bless Austin, as well as Night in the Wood's Scott Benson, for giving that mode its propers. I just want to make my lil' settlers feel safe, and something about patching a busted wall honestly triggers ASMR in me.
