What kind of games/TV shows/books do you like? That would make a big difference~

OK, try The Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne:

For the gist of the writing style and to hopefully pique your interest enough that you just have to go and find out more about this series, the following is the first paragraph of book #1, Hounded:

There are many perks to living for twenty-one centuries, and foremost among them is bearing witness to the rare birth of genius. It invariably goes like this: Someone shrugs off the weight of his cultural traditions, ignores the baleful stares of authority, and does something his countrymen think to be completely batshit insane. Of those, Galileo was my personal favorite. Van Gogh comes in second, but he really was batshit insane.

I generally like anything, thats why I didn't set any restrictions, but for sure I'm more for cartoons, I can be watching Rick and Morty or Breaking Bad and tomorrow Gravity Falls and My Little Pony.

Last thing I saw was Narcos and I'm starting with Narcos: Mexico I also have Carmen Sandiego 2nd Season on my watchlist. anything that I found interesting no matter if it's too bloody or childish it's welcome

About books, I don't have that much time to read, but I loved Dan Brown books, Inferno, Origin and Digital Fortress, Harry Potter Books, something here and there from Lovecraft and Stephen King

Not necessary. I wouldn't recommend 1, 2 is okay but plays very differently than 3.

Oh and watch The Expanse!

To answer that question, the main thing to know is: how much time do you have?

See, I am not a completionist, but do like to explore. It took me 90h for #1, 60h for #2 and 240h for #3 (with expansions). While I did enjoy #1 and #2, the 240h spent with #3 were time MUCH better spent than the 150h for #1 and #2.

So, I kind of agree with Golwar there -- it is possible to enjoy #3 without playing the first #2, and since the story, mechanics and graphics of #3 are so much better than #1 and #2, maybe you should go straight there.

That said, there are events in #3 that reference events in #1 and #2 (and there are even some decisions that you make in #1 and #2 that you can carry over to #3)... So, if you have the time (and the patience for the clunkiness of the old games), sure, go for the whole series. If not... well, you can always read/watch the recaps people posted of the first 2 games. Here is a reference for that:

If you want to understand and enjoy it fully, yes, playing first 2 is a must.
I saw a lot of people not "getting" Witcher 3 because they got hyped up and started with 3rd game in a series, and of course they had no idea WHY you should care about character X so much, or why situation Y is so damn funny.

W1 is an old school RPG with clunky mouse/keyboard setup. Just stick with it for a few hours and you'll get used to it.
W2 is more modern in every way, and features a lot of important story points for W3. You can't see everything in one playthrough, at least two to get major branches (whole countries got wiped out off the map).
If you decide to skip first two, at least watch any video where they tell you what happened in the first two games.

But, frankly, start with the books if you can: they are quite unique in world and lore, it's a slavic-like medieval-ish world with colorful characters and many little fun moments. A lot of social tension, elves-terrorists, and so on - fun stuff!

That's the spirit! Game story happens after the books (after the main set of books, last one got published thanks to Witcher games fame), starting with books is the right way.

Be aware that it'll be a long-term commitment, just books will take you a week or more. As far as I'm aware, all of them are translated to english (maybe even spanish, never checked).

Ideally, yes.

Witcher 1 is old and clunky, and starts out really slowly, but the story and setting are great. It's a game where a choice you didn't even really think about in chapter 1 could result in a quest NPC's death in chapter 3, and suddenly makes you think, "Oh, crap, I didn't realize my actions had actual consequences!"

Witcher 2 is far more polished, and further expands on the characters and story.

And Witcher 3 builds on everything before it. You don't have to have played the previous two games, but you'll appreciate the characters and setting more if you do.

The book "The mind's I", it's an essay about consciousness written in a divulgative and very flowing way, every chapter is a short story by some famous writer followed by the commentary of the authors.

🙈

I'd recommend the "Demon Cycle" book series written by Peter V. Brett. Audible offers them as audio books so if you lack time to read (as you stated above) you might listen to them while doing something else :3
The series consists of 5 books with 480-880 pages each so it's quite massive. It allows to take a break in between books tho 'cause each book tends to jump back every now and then to explain parts of the saga from a different view ('cause some characters join in later and the books explain their road of life so the reader understands why the characters behave the way they do). Those jumps are something I needed to get used to but they're a really good reminder to stay on track with what happened so far.
The story itself is about a boy (and later man) in a world filled with demons who get to the world's surface at night to feast on human beings. Some people know how to create magic runes to create spell circles which can prevent demons from passing or converting their power into something different. During a huge war the humanity lost knowledge of runes which are able to hurt demons so they have to stick to protective ones. Cities need to depend on messengers / dispatch riders to have contact to each other over longer distances and those messengers tend to scavenge old ruins looking for the forgotten runes. ... well, that's all that I'm gonna tell you for now. Don't want to spoil too much. :P

As a recommended hobby: Sewing and needle felting is super fun and most of the people I know never even tried it. Being a parent I consider myself old by now and I actually didn't even sew or needle felt myself until last year. Both of those hobbies don't need much of knowledge to start them (you can use free sewing patterns for plushies / watch a 5 minute tutorial for needle felting if you want to needle felt figures) and the materials are affordable as well.

I added a few images just as examples what I did.
The brown dragon was actually the second plush I ever sewed (using a pattern) - the blue sewed one was my first one ever done 'cause my son wanted me to sew a stegosaurus for him which ended up looking ike a Murloc from Warcraft (no pattern, just trying out by myself). Each plush takes about 4-8 hours to create if you sew by hand (except the blue one which could be done within 1-2 hours by hand if you stick to common plush cloth) and likely about 1-2 hours if you got a sewing machine.
The needle felted figures don't have patterns. You basically just felt additional wool onto your figure until it looks the way you want it to look. The owl (Rowlet from Pokémon) was my first needle felt figure, followed by the Totoro (which looks more like a bear :( ) the second one and the dragon my third one. Sadly didn't have time to do even more by now. Those take about two hours to get a good looking basic figure but you can spend waaaaay more time if you want to have a really stiff figure and want to add details etc.

The level of cuteness is off the chart here, damn. I must try this for sure, do you have any site to get patterns or manuals?

Also the book sounds cool, I'm into anything with fantasy and magic and those stuffs

In regards of free sewing patterns this site is quite nice. Beside that I often end up on various sites by browsing pinterest. If you never sewed before this is a cool trick to hold everything in place while being able to sew easily. If you don't have a sewing machine the only stitches you need to know are the back stitch (which is the standard sewing stich) and ladder stitch (used for attachements 'cause it's a hidden stitch when pulled together) - just look at the attached image. :)

For felting I recommend getting yourself a felting kit. Those often contain a manual for specific figures and also provide all the required tools and even basic material in addition. A full kit costs 15-30$ and contains enough wool for several figures. I recommend getting some white wool in addition tho so you can create the basic shape with the cheaper white wool and the colors on top.
