There needs to be some kind of term to describe a game that you really want to play, maybe more than anything else that's coming out, but not at the price for which it's being offered

Boy, I know this feeling. It's a weird one isn't?

for me it's not so much that I want to play something very badly but am unwilling to pay full price
but the other side of that coin in which I'm perfectly happy to full price for some other things that I don't want to play as badly

@bigsocrates: Yeah that's a good plan.

As a fellow veteran gamer who has to monitor what he does, If the picture is accurate about how you hold it...Your grip looks way too high

I think if you slide your grip lower on the handles , your finger tips will be in a slightly better position for the triggers and you won't lose access to the face buttons. Your thumb in particular looks too horizontal to me, I tend to keep mine at about a 45 degree angle, mimicking the angle from the Square to the X button. Tip of my thumb on or just past the Square, flexing the knuckle to hit "X". I think you'll want the tip of the handle to resting in your palm if you can

Don't have a PS5, but what I describe is roughly how I hold a XSX controller (which I use on PC), little easier to do there as their handles are longer. I think there's enough real estate on the DS to do it there too tho

The thing does look too small in your hands tho, maybe worth considering getting a 3rd party pad if time off plus grip change don't work. Not ideal, but it's better than getting a RSI.

@majormitch: It's possible

tho the kinds of "exclusives" I really liked most about PS4 later ended up coming to PC for the most part. I have strong hesitancy about even considering a PS5 at all as a result. I nearly didn't get

Really the only 1st party Sony stuff I played and loved was Uncharted: Lost Legacy and the Gravity Rush games.

But yeah, I can see your list is very competitive. I honestly don't know how I'd rank mine, other than PSTV (the "vita) I own being at the bottom and I honestly enjoy that device.

Agree with all you said Humanity

In my experience there's a definitely a balance to a good Rogue-lite. Any single run to win the game shouldn't take more than 45 minutes imo and if it does, then there needs to be shortcuts. You should also be always feeling like you are getting stuff to make you stronger, so even if you aren't getting better you essentially chip away at the difficulty until you knock it down to where you can clear it

Honestly I think the best way to play these things is during commutes by Mass transit. That's not my life, so these don't often fit into the way I play.

as for proper "Rogue"-likes, naw I'll pass on those. Life's too short and there are too many other games

@sparky_buzzsaw: ah ok
So what you add later won't necessarily be lower than megarace but could go anywhere placement wise?

definitely will be interesting :)

Thinking it through, as much as it pains me to admit it Majormitch I think you're right about the Vita

It's not so much it's bad, it's just about literally everything else has a deeper library

I like the PS4 a lot more than you seem to, but I wonder how much of that is driven by the one I own being a Pro. Even so I do have light buyer's remorse with it, because so much of that library that drove me to buy it ended up PC a year or two later when I had given up hope of that ever happening.

y'know funnily enough, emotionally I feel very tied to the SNES, but when I look at its library compared to other things I consider lesser I wonder if nostalgia is coloring my perceptions unfairly in its favor.

If there ever was a list where I wish I could receive it's this one. Gonna love seeing how it fills out

Genuinely stunned (in a good way) by some of these Sparky and I've known you for a good while now!

(biggest surprises include Shatter, Willy Beamish and the Les Manley games, the placement of Tales from the Borderlands [figured it'd be here but not that high] and most importantly the exclusion of Final Fantasy 6 and Dragon Quest 5)

fun stuff bud

btw Suikoden II is on PSN for $9.99, playable on PS3 and Vita if you're hankering to go back to it. Only Suikoden V is held hostage by original hardware these days.

If anything, I touched more games than usual in 2020, but there's a very good reason for that: between Game Pass, PlayStation Plus, and straight up free games in many places, there are so many games I can play nowadays without having to pay anything extra

Isn't that the truth? I think my favorite thing about Game Pass is that I don't feel guilty just bailing on a game if it's not working (Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance being a prime example.). Reminds me of how I used to play when the majority of what I touched were rentals.

I feel totally the same way about Star Renegades, Spiritfarer and Fall Guys

Fall Guys in particular seems like a fun concept design wise, but the visual design, controls and really lackluster music turned me off of it pretty quickly.

44 is a strong number man! I only managed 40 myself

I feel like 40-45 is a pretty good number because you get a lot done but still have the chance to play some longer stuff if you want to. I'm roughly shooting for one big game + 2-3 shorter games / month Kinda looks like you did the same so far (hitman 2 + shorter stuff)

I've always heard SNES Aladdin is better, it's the only one I've ever played so haven't been sufficiently motivated to seek out the Genesis one. Looks that isn't changing based on what you shared!
