2020 Game Completion Thread

Days Gone - when it finally gets going and you've meaningfully leveled up it gets pretty good but bloody hell it takes an age

Last of Us 2 - agree with toneeblair but overlong but good. Now want something non torture porn to play so Nina Gaiden 2 on Game Pass which is merely gratuitous violence.

Spiderman DLC 2 and 3-PS4- These were okay but not as good as the first. They were over long with lots of crimes to pad out the content if you want 100%, Screwball can fucking do one and better not be in the new game. Hyped for Miles Morales Spidey now.

Far Cry 3-PS4-Furlough Platinum number 7- This is a decent game Buck, Vaas and Hoyt were 3 unlikeable villains and I enjoyed killing them very much. It has a little bit of jank with prompts to climb or loot bodies etc not being as precise as they could but apart from that it was a lot of fun.

It's not as good as 4 imo because 4 took this template and refined it,  traversal of the world being easier is the major one.

Overall though this scratches my compulsive itch for shooting and collecting things.

Funny, I’m playing through FC4 at the moment and I keep thinking that it’s not as good as 3, seems a bit less thought through  and slightly hollow. But I played played 3 a long time ago and the drop down from 5 to 4 is quite noticeable (wasn’t 4 a 360 game?) so perhaps I’m being unfair.   One thing I am sure about though is that I prefer the tropical island feel of 3, feels more Far Cry.

Yeah I believe 4 is cross gen, but it's a big step up from how 3 looks and plays. This reminded me I hadn't played Valley of The Yetis dlc, so I started it this morning. The vehicles just have more weight to them, and although they don't drive brilliantly they're a lot better than 3s floaty cars. 4 looks better but then it was 3 years after so it should do! I think the gunplay feels better in 4 too.

 

As for the dlc, so far so good, it's not too long and apart from a shaky start I'm enjoying running around killing yetis and other wildlife. At least getting all this Far Cry out of my system means I won't rush out and buy 6 day one so that's nice :)

Yeah, probably some rose-tints going on with 3, also played it on PC so it probably looked nicer anyway. Didn’t do the yetis but I did do Blood Dragon which is probably the best piece of DLC there has ever been!  I’ll be getting 6 on day 1! (Then probably not play it for 6 months like I normally do with games these days..).

It must be 3 I have this issue with because I didn't like Blood Dragon(at least what I played of it) and I know it's universally liked but...I'll give it another go at some point when I get the FC itch again. I'm being really good as I've been furloughed for nearly 4 months so I've not been buying new games, just clearing the backlog and it's been great, and I'm hoping to take not buying day one forward once I come off furlough.(I find out tomorrow)

As for:

 

Far Cry 4-Valley of the Yetis-PS4-It's more Far Cry 4 but not as good. Each main mission you do is followed by an enforced wave based defence. It feels like padding because it is padding. After all you're not at the base all days as you're out killing Yetis and bad guys, they could just waltz in and take over the base while you're not there... Anyway, worth a couple of quid if you want more Far Cry 4.

Stopped playing FC4 as I got fed up of the damned if you do, damned if you don't stuff between the two people who give you missions. Took the fun out of it.

Prehistoric Isle in 1930-Poc-I got the SNK collection free from Twitch Prime. I finished this had a quick blast on Ikari Warriors and uninstalled the whole lot. I'm so glad I didn't but the compilation on Switch...Total bullshit that is best left in the arcades and the memory.
