Oh same, if I still lived with dad I’d be using all his cool gaming stuff all the time… He’s a hoarder, and he hoards technology. Hence the hand-me-downs.
If you can’t finish the game yourself, do what I do (though in my case it’s just because my devices won’t run it) and watch other people play it! I watched Cryaotic play the first game, currently struggling to find someone who’s played all the way through the second game and doesn’t have an abrasive voice (you know the classic ‘whats up gamers!! Like comment and subscribe!’ YouTuber voice? That. I’m not super keen on people yelling) but I’ve been watching ProperBird. She hasn’t played all the way through, though, so I had to find a silent one for the rest.
If Dishonored wasn’t such a fantastic game with incredible aesthetic and good lore and story, I wouldn’t be able to be interested because I’m very easily scared haha.
Good that your PC and laptop are holding on for now though! Upgrades are annoying, but I’m sure you’ll be able to get them sometime soon! When the time comes it’ll be fun
