Games here aren’t bad, they just didn’t keep me until the credits, or were culled because the list of games I have to play is oh so long.

  1. The Touryst (XSX) [5.0hr est] [gamepass]
    • Cute, reminds me of Fez crossed with Crossy Road.
  2. In Death: Unchained (VR)
    • Causes shoulder pain that I haven’t had to deal with in years.
  3. Planescape: Torment (NS) [33.0hr est]
    • Let’s be honest: I’m not getting to this.

    • Another game I’m never going to get to.
  5. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy (NS) [60.0hr est]
    • 60 hours? I cannot commit to such a lengthy journey right now.
  6. Indivisible (XB1) [18.0hr est] [gamepass]
    • Left Game Pass before I could get to it.
  7. Pistol Whip (VR)
    • I just wasn’t enjoying it.
  8. Recore (XB1) [12.0hr est] [gamepass]
    • This has been on the pile so long, other things are way more likely to get played.
  9. God of War (2018) (PS4) [19.5hr est]

:thought_balloon: Why?

“You should be playing games you enjoy. Just remember your pile when you start looking for something else to play, instead of purchasing another title. That’s really all this is for - to make sure you enjoy what you’re playing and getting rid of stuff that you aren’t.” - Me

:memo: Notes to Self

  • I should not buy DLC until I am ready to play it.
  • I stop playing open world games when I complete the main story.
  • I am bad at platformers, regardless of how much I enjoy watching them.
    • See Super Lucky’s Tale and Mario Maker 2.
  • I am much more of a taste-tester than I ever was before. This leads to more jettisoned games, but in the end I, I find myself playing more games and getting hooked on the ones that really click with me.
