Five for Fun (First 100 Completions)
Last time I posted I said I will be back to countdown my top 5 games from my first 100 completions. Who knows if I'll be back to do the next set of five, but for now it seems apt to pick out those games which left me wanting more. These games aren't necessarily the quickest games to finish, but more the games that provided a bit of enjoyment during times of grinding. I've not tried to mix and match genres, and I've not tried to find something that will cater for everyone, these are simply the games which I shed a little tear over when I finally unlocked that last achievement.

So without further ado, here in reverse order is my list...

Number 5 - Costume Quest 2
Turn-based role-playing games are hard to come by in this day and age, even the classic Final Fantasy series has turn to a more Active Time Battle system, so when Costume Quest 2 was added to the Game Pass I found it hard to turn down the opportunity of giving this one a whirl, and I was not disappointed.

The narrative is very amusing in places, the story itself revolves around a group of kids trying to prevent Dr White from ridding the world of Halloween. To accomplish this epic quest you have to face off against a range of different enemies by equipping different costumes which each come with their own benefits. Collecting the costumes is a side-quest in itself, then there's Collectible Cards, a solid leveling up system, as well as other side-quests to take on. For a relatively short experience, by RPG standards, this game has an awful lot of stuff packed into it.

I was actually surprised at just how much I did enjoy this game, I usually find my interest in these games drift as time elapses. There are plenty of older generation Turn-Based RPG's where I have simply stopped playing before reaching the end goal, but with this one I felt that there was just enough content to capture my attention the whole way through. I will confess that I haven't played the first game in the series, and I am also aware that, should I wish to, I could replay the whole game once again on the Xbox 360, but that's an experience for another time.

This game may not be the most difficult of games to finish, but it's definitely one that will live long in my memory and is fully deserving of it's place in my Top 5.


Number 4 - Stacking
Most games tend to be easily comparable to others, you can bunch Turn-Based RPG's together, you can bunch up games like Dragon Quest and Elder Scrolls. GTA & Saint's Row, Tomb Raider & Prince of Persia, FIFA and PES... but I struggle to find anything like Stacking.

In it's purest form, Stacking is an adventure/puzzle game, you move around, complete quests, solve puzzles and eventually finish the game, but then you find that there's a whole different dimension added when all this is done with the help of Matryoshka Dolls (those Russian dolls that stack inside themselves, hence the game's title). These dolls can accomplish different tasks, and you have to climb inside the right ones in order to complete said challenges. Sure, there's a walkthrough to make things ultimately easier, but that takes nothing away from quite how enjoyable this game truly is.

The game might seem to be a little short with only a handful of levels, but it doesn't lack in content. The levels are vast, with so much room for exploration, without a guide it would take an awful long time to truly finish the whole game. This game is a credit to the marketplace, even down to subtle details such as a altering the visual display of the screen when climbing inside a dog doll (to portray colourblindness), you can see that a lot of effort has been put into making this game a memorable experience, and it's safe to say that Double Fine Productions nailed it with this one.


Number 3 - Letter Quest: Grimm's Journey Remastered
I picked up Letter Quest when it popped up on sale in the Marketplace, before it became part of the Game Pass furniture. I was drawn to it's unique look, it's a cross between Scrabble and Turn-Based RPG, it's a concept that should never ever work... but strangely enough it does!

You work through the levels, causing damage to enemies based on the word length and letters used, but then there are upgrades, you can buy equipment that helps you to cause more damage to enemies, you can buy armour to lower the damage you receive, there's upgrades which can show you how much damage you'll cause before submitting words. There's different enemies which can either parry damage or take more damage depending on certain criteria based on the letters chosen. Some enemies can change your board layout and cause poison, or freezing, or block the availability of certain letters for a short period of time. The game is such a basic idea, but filled with so many little ways of keeping you drawn in to its gameplay.

Since it's release 10tons have responded with a similar title in Spellspire , which managed to grab my interest as a decent substitute to the void left by the completion of Letter Quest, it's not really a game that will likely garner it's own sequel but if it ever does I'll be ready to put in the hours once more.


Number 2 - Torchlight
Torchlight is your typical Diablo or Baldur's Gate style of Action Role Playing Dungeon Crawler, it was one of the first games I picked up on the Xbox 360 marketplace and it took me a lot of hours to fully complete, but it was worth every single second.
The game doesn't have a compelling story, in fact I couldn't really tell you what the story is, but it does come with plenty of looting, random enhancement gems, and also a lot of ways to strengthen your character and weapons. You can turn yourself into a sadomasochist by enabling Hardcore mode, which means when you die, you die forever... This was the reason it took me hours upon hours of playthrough before I finally gave in to the much easier route of being able to reload your saves!
There's not much that makes this a complete standout of a game, titles like Dungeon Siege III are similar and also offer a much vaster experience, but Torchlight is a game that captured my time for hours on end in a period long before being an achievement hunter. It took me over 3 years before finally putting this game to rest, I wish there was more exploration to it than just a single town and dungeon, but it reminded me of how easy it is to pass time by killing creatures and looting chests and barrels. It's not on this list for being groundbreakingly outstanding in anyway, but purely down to my own sheer will and determination to see this one through to it's conclusion.


Number 1 - Murdered: Soul Suspect
If you've read my past blogs then this will come as no surprise. Murdered: Soul Suspect is a game which I enjoyed so much that I finished it twice on both the Xbox One and Xbox 360, and I just wish this game would have lasted longer, or that there were more stories to work through because I was so saddened when I reached the final cut-scene and closed the curtain on this title.
For those of you that haven't seen my past appraisals, Murdered: Soul Suspect is an action-adventure game where you play the role of recently deceased Police Detective, Ronan, who tries to solve the story surrounding his own murder via the help of a medium named Joy. Along the way you'll uncover the stories surrounding the different characters in the game, mainly your relationship with your wife Julia who had not long died prior to Ronan. You work your way around the town of Salem (yes, that one!) piecing everything together. There's witchcraft involved, you find yourself solving previous crimes in the same town, and also pick up a multitude of collectibles which themselves unlock some pretty bizarre stories told by other people.
This game is not action heavy, there's no weaponry, no endless hordes of enemies, and it's not overly complicated, but it's so captivating as a story that the game itself plays out like a movie plot. There's a fair amount of twists and turns to go through, you get everything explained at the end of the game to tie up any loose ends, and the whole experience just feels complete. My own interest in stories like the Salem Witch Trials made this game so much more enjoyable on a personal level, the way that the stories come together is very well written and was compelling enough to captivate me a second time around as well. Games like Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter ,L.A. Noire and Agatha Christie - The A.B.C. MURDERS have similar types of investigatory measures, but none of them have captivated my interest as much as Mudered: Soul Suspect, which is why this game fully deserves it's place as my favourite completion(s) to date.


So there you have it, hopefully the next 100 will bring another handful of decent gems that are fully worth playing. There's plenty of them in my started games list that need completing so maybe one of those will be making an appearance in the future?

Next time I'll be back to my usual blogging standard, with GTASC updates, recent completions and hopefully a couple of new game mentions along the way, so until then... Keep Gaming and Keep Scoring!

Loved them. Better franchise and more entertaining to play than Madden.

I slightly prefer Madden, but that's like prefeering a 9.5/10 to a 9/10, I still want them both!

NCAA was always a great lead up to Madden every year. Me and my friends used to spend hours naming all of the players with their real names to upload to our draft classes
