Games that didn’t make the cut:
Games I meant to get to but couldn’t:
- Ashen - Lost interest after a few hours.
- Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Purchased during the Steam Winter sale and, well, I couldn’t finish it before the end of the year.
- Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice - After beating the first boss, I wondered if the “puzzles” were ever going to change and found out that they do not and thus my interest fell drastically.
- State of Decay 2 - Lost interest after a few hours.
- (Great Nintendo Switch game) - I don’t have a Nintendo Switch
- A Way Out - No interest and no one to play it with.
- Assassin’s Creed Odyssey - While my interest in the series is at an all time high since maybe Brotherhood, I can wait until I’ve played through Origins before getting to this one.
- Detroit: Become Human - Since playing through Indigo Prophecy, I found that watching someone else play through Quantic Dream games is a much more tolerable experience, especially when things get too stupid. Which happened once again in the playthrough I watched.
- Dragon Ball FighterZ - I’m certain I will enjoy it but not for long.
- God of War - I will likely only allow myself to get this until I’ve finished playing the main trilogy.
- Life is Strange 2 - I can wait until the season is done before picking it up.
- Monster Hunter: World - For a little while I was interested but then I didn’t care anymore.
- Persona 3/5: Dancing in Moonlight/Starlight - While I love the 3 soundtrack, I can wait until they’re relatively cheaper along with their DLC.
- Red Dead Redemption 2 - I didn’t like the first one nor do I like cowboy shit, so no thanks.
- Shadow of the Tomb Raider - Reviews have confirmed my suspicions that this is very much an iterative entry like the last one, which isn’t bad, but that means I don’t have the urgency to play it as soon as possible.
- Soul Calibur VI - Like with any fighting game, it’s best I wait since all I usually do is play through the single player stuff.
- Valkyria Chronicles 4 - I have every intention of playing previous entries besides the first, which I’ve already played, before getting to this one.
- Yakuza 6: The Song of Life - I haven’t even finished my playthrough of Yakuza Kiwami yet.
- Yakuza Kiwami 2 - I haven’t even finished my playthrough of Yakuza Kiwami yet.
