This year alone I bought around 100 games to add to my digital collection. I typically go by my rotation to tell which I love Rocket League, Battlefield V, DBZ Fighters, OverWatch, and Halo Infinite mixed in with a SP of my choosing.
I'll attempt maybe a dozen or so but most are thrown aside within a few hours and never finished or returned to.
Being an old cunt of 42 with very limited free time a game needs to click with me almost instantly, can be completed in under 10 hours and doesn't require the memory of an elephant and dexterity of an octopus when it comes to controlling the game with a joypad or keyboard.
I was playing one of the wolfenstein games the other night, it required two key presses to crouch or crawl or whatever. Uninstalled it immediately, I have absolutely no patience whatsoever for something even as trivial as that.
pretty much. I buy lots of highly regarded games but after the initial first play test I rarely want to play them again. My Steam Library is full of games with less than an hour as they're mostly all shite. I end up going back to older games which I've played for lots of hours on.
Quite a few, I'd say probably 10+ but that's because I mainly retro game so I have access to thousands of games I've never played. Some of them misses, some hits.
For instance, started playing Pandora's Tower via the Wii U a few weeks back. That game is fucking awesome, full stop. The combat is so much fun, the exploration, and the dating simulator of all things is really engaging. Just a total gem of a game and glad I decided to check it out.
Deep Fear on the Sega Saturn, fantastic RE clone that never released in NA.
Final Fantasy 9
Might sound crazy but if I solely relied on current gen gaming, I'd play 1-2 games a year.
Shocked by how many games I enjoyed this year, 30+ because of the PSN deals, PS Plus my point is you can go on a Resident Evil marathon, or play a Mass Effect collection and I get why gaming is considered an addiction in some circles.
