Last games of my gaming career
I'm probably going to quit playing games. Nothing announced for next gen really inspires me. I've found enough in this generation to play and I think revisiting games makes more sense than making a $500 purchase. I am currently playing Fifa 17 and Uncharted 2. I expect to finish those games up this weekend and plan on jumping into the following games next. I'm buying a house in the next 6 months and I'd really like a house free of media other than music or what is on my phone so I will donate a bulk of my games and computer stuff and TV to the goodwill and quit gaming. I have 191 days. I'd like to get through the following games and this will be record of games. No games may be added to the list. I am putting what I hope to accomplish for each game. All of the games beaten will have a review on this site. I don't believe more than a couple of games deserve 5 stars. So if I recommend anything at 5 stars it comes highly recommended. I will score these as a sign of completion with asterisks (****_). I will try to write a comprehensive review for the site as well. Indicated by (REVIEWED). In no particular order:
Edit: I've made the realization that I really dont want to play any of the games in my list. I used to hold this opinion that people that were well read or in the modern era played alot of games were knowledgeable people. I'm starting to realize through everything that reading is fundementally the better path forward. My gaming peers cannot think, or why would you spend 100s of hours playing Destiny or in my case 500 hours playing PUBG. Sure there are social aspects to it but i really dont have anybody in my real life that i can commiserate with on the breadth and width of these games, which was the whole point. If a site like giantbomb.com can't support active discourse, instead devolving to "what you think heaven is? (emphasis on poor grammar),' and that gets traction then i need to stay far, far, far away from the gaming community. I have to come to some conclusions on the games i like and i will note those here:
Favorite Franchise: Assassins Creed
Favorite Game: Pubg
Favorite Series: Last of Us
Favorite Console: Xbox One X
I think i had a compulsion to play 51 games because i wanted to get my money's worth. I don't care anymore. I'm just going to donate to goodwill and feel good about myself. A couple of dozen chicken nuggets will pail in comparison that some kid with $6 will get from the games. Last of Us 2 was truly a waste of my time I'll just keep the consoles since i have digital games and just donate the disc. I'm kind of glad i didnt go all digital this generation.
So the last games will be AC: Odyssey and then Ghost of Tsushima. An Assassins Creed game and a take on a Assassins Creed Game. Let's go. You can disregard the other 49 titles i picked. Who really cares? The scene has been lost to twitch influencers and youtube talking heads.
Couldn't even be arsed to play anything after having a conversation with a friend. Why should i dole out 30+ hours to AC: Odyssey plus another 12 for Ghosts. Donated a bunch of stuff to goodwill and traded in ps4 and some games for like $300 in store credit that i will use over the next couple of years on wallets, t-shirts, notebooks, and socks. I will be writing reviews for almost all of the games i've ever played my next review will be for Mafia 3. The prevailing thing that i care about most with videogames is the soundtrack, the echoes of an elusive age, I've had enough.
