I've played Journey twice and got really far. But I've never finished it. It's just okay IMO.
I'm really struggling to get into anything lately and I'm concerned I'm going off gaming as a hobby. I'm still reading and am actively interested in the industry news, but actually playing stuff is suddenly feeling boring and chore-like. I'm even beginning to wonder if purchasing a PS5 might be a waste of money, at least at the moment. Perhaps it's a phase, but I can't shake the feeling that I've finally grown tired of playing the exact same formulas over and over again. I've been gaming for around 35 years now, so I suppose this had to happen eventually. Gaming rarely offers surprises anymore.
Titles I've played but not finished in the last 9 months or so:
Assassin's Creed: Odyssey - great adventure which is just off-puttingly gigantic and formulaic
Journey - elegant but lacking gameplay depth
Wreckfest - cool smash 'em up racer
Shadow of the Colossus - fight boss rinse repeat
Supraland - recommend to JWFan more than anything else on this list
Oddworld: Strangers Wrath - older game has its ardent fans but I never got into it
Dark Souls 3 - rightfully revered but I'm not as determined as I used to be
Get Even - another unremarkable narrative driven first person thriller but with good voice acting
Prey - very well made first person metroidvania but I grew tired of doors constantly requiring passcodes, plus I already played the Bioshock trilogy years before
South Park: The Stick of Truth - amusing and stopped playing it for no reason
The Turing Test - another unremarkable narrative driven first person puzzle adventure
Resident Evil 7 - I don't like hiding games where the player is made helpless by design
Ori and the Blind Forest - beautiful and enjoyable side-scrolling metroidvania, highly recommended. Maybe I'll get back to it at some point
State of Decay - engrossing but stressful zombi apocalypse sim
Watchdogs - a mechanically very polished open world game (plays far more responsively than any Rockstar equivalent) but set in a dour city which isn't really all that fun to inhabit
Dishonest 2 - good stealth 'em up with cleverly designed levels, but I always grow bored of sneaking about after 20 hrs and with loads left to do
Game I did actually play to completion last week (in one sitting): ABZÛ - I like really short but consistently captivating games, and I'd never played a deep sea diving one before. Austin Wintory's flowery and throwaway score in the background
I definitely do prefer shorter games nowadays. And even more than gameplay I seem to require a really compelling reason to play all the way to the end: I need a good story. Trouble is, apart from the occasional exception video game media is probably the worst place to look for one.
