  33. A Plague Tale: Requiem – Completed 11/17/22
  34. Sommerville – Complete

In this list, there are quite a few games missing that I don’t consider to have “finished”, because no end or made mainly by my wife. In bulk:

  • Powerwash Simulator
  • Destiny 2
  • Overwatch 2 (I already did the first 2 season passes, so I played a lot of hours of games…)
  • Disney Dreamlight Valley
  • Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

In short, a year that was ultimately busy with a little bit of everything: recent, retrogaming, ind and triple A Dark Souls), Tinykin (play it, it’s cool as anything!) and my Proust madeleine: Return to Monkey Island.
I played 90% of the time on Xbox, with the exception of 2 games on Switch (Live A Live/Return to Monkey Island) and one on PS4 (GoW Ragnarok) which is not finished at the time of this writing. Moreover, my Gamepass subscription was largely profitable in view of the price paid and the number of titles I was able to access in the list of what I did. Tastes and colors, coughed, but personally I remain particularly fond of the offer!

For 2023, the objective will already be to blow up my backlog before considering acquiring new titles. And I think there is something to do:

  • GoW Ragnarok – PS: well, I shouldn’t be far from the end in my opinion. Odin clearly begins to squeeze the buttocks l.
  • High On Life – Xbox
  • Ghost of Tsushima – PS
  • The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series – Xbox
  • Nier Replicant – Xbox
  • Bloodborne – PS
  • Stray – PS
  • Final Fantasy VII Remake – PS
  • Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII Reunion – Xbox
  • Mass Effect: Legendary Edition – Xbox
  • Attack On Titan – Xbox
  • Attack On Titan 2 – Xbox
  • Persona 3 Portable – Xbox
  • Persona 4 – Xbox

Well… And that’s not counting the little ones that will clearly slip in over the months. If I can already do 1/3 of this list in the year, it will be good I think. Do you have a recommendation for the game after GoW? I find it long, with a really choppy pace and the gameplay not as enjoyable as the previous ones. It’s a good game but clearly not a success in my eyes, far from what is expected of a potential GOTY.
I hesitate between Stray for a little relaxing adventure, before moving on to High On Life and/or Bloodborne. Tell me your opinion!
