Games That I Played / Completed in 2020

Another attempt to keep track of everything I play, this time in 2020!

My goal this year is to take a machete to my backlog...

List items

  • January - April 2020

    Playing on PS4 Pro

    I continue to play this amazing MMO with my group of friends. I'm still having fun, but my time has been limited while working on the backlog. I can't wait for Patch 5.2 in February! 5/5

    Update: Patch 5.2 is here. I'm still playing every week with friends, and I'm excited to check out the next Eden raid and Ruby Weapon trial. The Gunbreaker and Machinist classes are both really fun to play.

  • January - April 2020

    Playing on PS4 Pro

    I'm still trying to decide if I want to continue playing this. I'm fiddling around with sidequests, and should start the main quest soon.

    Update: My character is now LVL 20, and I'm still doing zone quests. Did a few delves and a public dungeon solo with some success (having other people mobbing around the public dungeon helped a lot). I'm finding the stealth combat with Nightblade pretty fun. Also stealing everything for extra cash is great. This game is a bit clunky, but I'm finding it interesting to play. I love the Elder Scrolls world enough to put more time into it. 3/5 so far (may change based on story quality).

    Update: My character is around CP205 now. I've really come around on this game. The Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood questlines were very fun to play through, and I'm interested to check out the Morrowind chapter. The writing has gotten a lot better compared with the base game. I think I might try to get to most of the available content before the new expansion this summer. 4/5

    Completed Main Story Acts 1 - 4 on PC

    I picked up this game on the steam sale for super cheap. This game is a blast with friends. Kind of a fantasy Left 4 Dead with ratmen instead of zombies. I unlocked the Bounty Hunter and never looked back - the dialogue from Victor alone is worth the price of admission. 4/5

  • February - March 2020

    Playing on PC

    My friends decided to check out SWTOR again after all these years, so I downloaded the free-to-play version and started a Smuggler. The game's dialogue system is still impressive, and the gameplay was designed well enough that it holds up after 8 years. I'm looking forward to grouping up with my friends and trying to tackle the group content.

  • March - April 2020

    Completed on PS4 Pro

    Got back to finish up the last few missions on this weird, offbeat game. I enjoyed the combat for the most part, though it could get frustrating at times, with enemies I couldn't see taking me from full to low health with one hit. I enjoyed exploring the FBC building, and watching all of the creepy Threshold Kids videos. The voice acting is well done, but the character models get very close to uncanny valley territory. Ultimately, I had a lot of fun with this game, and would welcome an Alan Wake sequel in this style. 4/5

  • March - April 2020

    Playing on PS4 Pro

    I'm excited to put another 100 hours into this fantastic game. P5 is one of my favorite games this generation. Apparently there are a bunch of QoL improvements with P5R (I've already noticed that ammo replenishes after every battle), so I have a feeling this is going to be even better than the original. Not feeling the new opening yet, but I'm sure I'll come around.

    Update: I finished the Bank Palace, and have come around on the opening song lol. I'm enjoying all of the little additions to the base game, and I like the new characters. 5/5

  • April - May 2020

    Playing on PS4 Pro

    Putting this game on hold for now.

  • June - July 2020

    Completed on PS4 Pro

    Amazing game. Good updates to the gameplay. Crazy good graphics. A very brutal and uncomfortable, but well told story about revenge. I was in equal turns shocked, disgusted, and enthralled. The story structure is not as throughline as the first game, but it serves the overall narrative well, and I can see why they made certain story choices. My GOTY so far. 5/5

  • July 2020

    Playing on PS4 Pro

    Putting this game off until I finish TLOU2.
