One thing I learned last year is that forcing myself to complete games I’m just not enjoying is a good way to be miserable, so I don’t really mind that I’ve bounced off a few of these games.
Cyberpunk 2077 finally came out, and it was… ok? I played on PC, so didn’t see the massive issues that the consoles had, and I waited until a lot of the major bugs had been fixed (and until I got a new graphics card).
Twelve Minutes finally came out as well. This has been on my radar for years, and it was fun while it lasted. I do wish it was longer, or had some more replayability. I couldn’t bring myself to go back for the other endings.
A big theme with the games this year was games that I just couldn’t run on my old PC. I had to stop playing Cyberpunk, Control and Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate because I just couldn’t run them. I ended up buying a new prebuilt PC, because a whole PC with a Geforce 3070 worked out cheaper than what graphics cards were going for earlier in the year.
One other game that I don’t think anyone has ever heard of is NITE Team 4, a hacking simulation. I love these kinds of games. They’re basically just puzzles with a terminal slapped in front of them, but I just can’t stop playing them.
