The Path to 100 Complete Games - 7 Weeks Update
So 8 weeks in roughly and how are things going?
Well another 4 games have been completed to 100%. Several more have been identified as being close to finishing but I need to go back to the XBox360 to complete them such as The Cave, Lego Star Wars, Bully, Syberia 1 and 2, DeathSpank..
Inside: Excellent, visuals and audio are great, no instructions or plot explanation so you make the story up as you go or just watch all the little things happening in the background. Doesn't take long to play through but the atmosphere and immersion is top of the charts (especially if you wear headphones for the audio track). Whilst not as interactive as Firewatch, it very nearly topped it on my games completed this year chart. Some of the achievements need a little backtracking but dont deviate from the playthrough and actually form a key part of the story.
Abzu: Very good - lovely sea world visuals and audio. Went through it pretty quickly but could happily leave the game on meditation view and watch. Pretty simplistic game play and easy puzzles make it a nice way relaxing game to play through, as much about exploration as it is about swimming rapidly from A to B.
Broken Sword 5: The only full release on this list (so far). I've been a fan of the Broken Sword series since day so was pleased to get this on pre-owned. Graphically its not going to blow anyone's socks off, and some of the puzzles are a little obscure but its still an entertaining story and some good voice work (plus its always nice to catch up with George and Nico). Some missable achievements mean a guide is useful.
Three fourths home: Not a lot to say - its an interactive conversation story about a girl driving through a storm home. I admire the intent to push the envelope of an interactive story / game but to me it was pretty tedious. A few playthroughs are required to complete but I'd put it in the Dear Esther category of played only for the achievements.
In addition to the above, I've gone as far as I want to pretty much with Forza Horizon 3, and had a blast revisiting the Modern Warfare remastered edition. I've also come to the conclusion that Forza 6, whilst a very visually and technically good game is pretty dull to actually play. I've done a few races and tracks and challenges, but I feel little desire to go on with it, so I may spend more time in Horizon and get the Blizzard Mountain pack. Up next: Hue, Swappers, Nightmares from the Deep 2 and on the full game list back to AC: Unity and finish Morden Warfare Remaster.
Finally, I've decided to put the games I've finished in order of enjoyment so here they are.
Dear Esther: Landmark Edition
