We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

Been a long time since my last post. Generally I've done quite well and finished most of what I listed. Given it was eight months ago it would be disappointing if I hadn't! 😂

UPDATE:

Old Lists

Currently Playing:

  • * Super Smash Bros. Ultimate* - COMPLETED. I've now done all the single player stuff (100% Spirits, Classic Mode, World of Light and all but three offline challenges.
  • * Pokémon Let's Go Eevee* - COMPLETED. Finished main story.
  • * Ratchet and Clank HD* (PS3 version) - COMPLETED
  • * Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm*
  • Hitman 2 - FAILED. To my annoyance I haven't got round to this but it is always on my gaming "to do" list.

Backlog:

1. Trails in the Sky SC - The clearing of my immense handheld on-the-go list continues and I've actually resumed playing this. On the final chapter.
2. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker - Haven't touched.
3. Crash Bandicoot 3 - COMPLETED

Most Wanted:

I did purchase Yoshi's Woolly World and Bloodstained. They've both been completed.


New Lists

Currently Playing:

1. Dragon Quest Builders 2 - a massive game, but I've made solid progress and should be finished within the next week.
2. Trails in the Sky SC - Yes, it's been on my list for an eternity, but it will be done!

Backlog:

1. Red Dead Redemption 2 - Played this solidly in March and finished Chapter 3, but then it drifted back into the backlog. Now in the mood to get back into it.
2. Hitman 2
3. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Bought a Switch Pro Controller so am all ready to go
4. Tales of Hearts R - Aiming to replace Trails in the Sky SC as my primary handheld game as soon as I've finished it.

Most Wanted:

  • Doom Eternal
  • Pokémon Shield
  • Luigi's Mansion 3
  • The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

Largely a Switch focused end-of-year as the PS4 is starting to wind down. Rather tempted to get the saucy "Only on PlayStation" editions of Ratchet & Clank and Horizon Zero Dawn. Meanwhile my brain is screaming "what about your backlog, you goon?!"

@themcnoisy Completely understand trophy anxiety. These days I don't really care about getting them unless I'm really into the game or they're easy, but back in the early days of the 360 I'd strive to get as many achievements as possible, which in turn triggered anxiety.

Previous backlog
1. Red Dead Redemption 2 Beaten!
2. Nioh (current main game) Eh...
3. Minit Platinum!

This backlog was old. I'm ashamed to admit I still haven't beaten Nioh. It even dropped from my priority list, as I kinda got bored of it. Loved many of the levels and fighting the bosses, but this game is a bit too long and a bit too repetitive.

Current backlog:
1. Yakuza Kiwami 2
2. Assassin's Creed Origins
3. Song of the Deep
(4. Nioh. I hope to beat it one day!)

Most wanted
1. Death Stranding
2. Abzu
3. Unravel 2

@themcnoisy I'm not a trophy completionist (have my own definition of complete) but I can somewhat relate.

Originally, when my backlog started getting out of hand, I started pushing myself to finish the games quicker, to the point where it wasn't all that enjoyable.

Eventually I got over that by reminding myself to enjoy and not race. If the backlog grows, so be it, its about having fun.

@themcnoisy - i kind of see where you're coming from, though in my case it's from not wanting to have a trophy list that's cluttered with games with small completion percentages, or just a few trophies.. i pretty much ignore games now that would fall into the "i'd probably not like it, but you never know" category because of it. also games that are massive, or have a high probability that i'll get bored long before the end, i generally don't consider anymore either, as experienced with the likes of assassin's creed origins, mass effect andromeda, far cry 4, watch dogs... where my trophy percentage is in single digits. it's why i skipped the likes of days gone. i'm not convinced it's something i'd really like, or at least like enough to finish 50 hours of it, and i don't want it sitting there with a 4% trophy completion.

i just don't like where modern gaming is going if i'm honest.. i don't have time or the interest for 100-hour open world games, or GaaS - i don't want it to feel like a chore where i have to keep up with the game at somebody's else pace, i don't know what happened to modern multiplayers, but they've mostly sucked since the arrival of current gen consoles - some glacial pace progression systems designed to entice you to spend to acquire or stuff gated behind "season passes" doesn't help either. i haven't bought a game since Detroit:Become Human last may, and probably the only two games i'll buy before PS5 are TLoU2 and Dreams (where at least i'll be able to play the @mcnoisy masterpiece). consequently i have no backlog to speak of.
