Detroit: Become Human
"Visually and technically impressive, but not a very deep story resulting in a rather short game, or rather, interactive story is more like it. Mind you, the game is designed to instill multiple playthroughs by being able to branch the story in about a dozen places. I found the story to be completely predictable, at least the version that I completed. Compared to previous Quantic Dreams titles, there isn't much new and the game plays pretty closely to Heavy Rain. Which isn't really a good thing since Beyond Two Souls was a far superior game. It's as if they didn't learn anything about the bad parts of Heavy Rain, which were not present in Beyond, but are back in Detroit. It was still a mostly enjoyable 10 hours spent."
Played: March 1st - March 7th
"I didn't get to play this when it came out in 2001. I played the PS3 "HD remaster". I found the game to be decent in terms of design and gameplay, but the story is threadbare and the textures were pretty low quality for an "HD remaster". The camera and movement controls can be very annoying compared to newer games. The variety of game mechanics is very limited compared to more modern games. Still, it makes for an enjoyable 8-10 hours."
Played: March 14th - March 21st
Final Fantasy Type-0
"I can't quite pinpoint what's wrong with this game, the presentation is fine, but after playing for about an hour I had had enough and have no desire to return to the game."
Played: September 1st, 2017 - September 30th, 2017
Resident Evil 7 biohazard
"Really well made, but quite difficult. I got stuck at a boss battle around 10 hours in and wasn't able to get any further. No other RE game stopped me, so I'd say this one is significantly more difficult."
Played: August 1st, 2018 - December 31st, 2018
"Another entry in the Trials series. Very slick. You can create your own trials and play other people's creations. Playing the main game, the trials get quite difficult pretty quickly."
Played: July 1st, 2018 - July 31st, 2018
"Sony's take on cart racing. Not bad, but nothing special. Announcers are obnoxious and annoying."
Played: April 1st, 2019 - May 1st, 2019
Mass Effect 2
"Very well-made action RPG. Does everything well. Good story, balanced gameplay, good voice acting, graphics, etc."
Played: May 1st, 2019 - December 31st, 2019
"Very well-made retro-styled platformer. Very difficult. Cool story."
Played: February 1st, 2019 - February 28th, 2019
Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time
"Overall presentation is decent but controls felt really poor. After a couple of levels, I didn't want to play anymore."
Played: September 1st, 2019 - September 30th, 2019
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
"Graphics, msuic and gameplay are decent and it feels like a Castlevania game, but I just didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would."
Played: September 1st, 2020 - October 31st, 2020
"The game has a pretty cool edgy presentation and everything seemed well-done but the gameplay didn't keep me interested for very long. I just don't like this type of game but I can see how others may really like it."
Played: August 1st, 2020 - August 10th, 2020
The Last of Us Part II
"Ugh. This game is a mess. Similar to the first one, graphics and voice acting are great, but that's about it. The story is poor. Gameplay is boring and uneven. At least this time around trophies are more reasonably obtained."
Played: December 24th, 2020 - January 7th
"Why do they keep making this game and why do people keep buying it?"
Horizon Zero Dawn
"First off, the artistic production value in this game is very high. The graphics are beautiful, the voice acting is for the most part really well done and the story is pretty decent. Unfortunately, you'll only get the whole story if you go around collecting the *hundreds* of optional artifacts and then read, listen or view each of them. This is not how games should tell a story. On the plus side, the game is extremely huge. If you're a completionist, you'll easily get 100 hours out of the base game not counting the expansions. Now for the bad. There isn't a whole lot of variety in what you need to do to complete the game. Even though I played the game in late 2020, there are still significant bugs in the game. Sometimes the bugs get in your way, sometimes they actually help you. My biggest complaint is that the variety of weapons are a joke. They are all pretty much the same, and the most powerful one is the very first one you get! The next thing that bugs me is that you cannot use the environment when battling the machines. These are the things that kept me from really loving the game and giving it five stars. Still, it was enjoyable enough and helped me kill 100 hours during the pandemic. Outside the pandemic I'm not sure I would have played this game."
