    Fallout 1.5 2nd playthrough

    Started a 2nd underrail playthrough but got bored after a few hours.

    That's about all the video games I played in 2018. Prolly messed around on vicky 2 a bit aswell. I got a bunch of free puzzle games/crappy platformers as bundle trash on here but quit most after like 5-15 minutes so they don't really count.

    I actually have no fucking idea. Guess I'll just put down what comes to mind at least.

    Call of Cthulhu (Seemed like it might be cool with skill checks and focus on investigation rather than combat, didn't pay it off, all the endings are way underbaked and not satisfying. Disappointing)
    Dark Souls 3 DLC 1 (More DS3. It was fine)
    Slay the Spire (Going to call 100%ing it completing it since it was 250 hours of fucking around as they added to it and it's "Content complete" now. Great game)
    Vampyr (Starts promising, falls apart at the end. Similar to Cthulhu for mid-budget RPG which ends up disappointing)
    Dumpsterfire (Hey, the graphics are nicer. Some of these mechanics seem better. Having a ship is cool, is this game actually good? Oh, that's ship combat? Oh, that's exploration? Oh, the main quest is 2 hours long? Oh, faction selection doesn't really matter? Oh, who you attack on the sea doesn't matter? Oh, that's the ending? Oh, this giant grub I killed at like level 3 is the single hardest encounter in the entire game? Oh. Oh...)
    Tacoma (Actually had a ton of fun with this. May just be the sci-fi setting that floated my boat but for a walking sim I had way more fun than I thought I would. So much so that I'll probably try Gone Home or Going Home or whatever it's called)
    Stories the Path of Destinies (Also had a surprising amount of fun with this. Simple storybook action game with some amusing writing. Short even though it's built around replaying it multiple times but fun)
    Subnautica (Great little game. Has some flaws but the feeling of exploration is excellent. Just for god's sake don't look up spoilers or you'll ruin the game for yourself)
    Dishonored Death of the Outsider (Top notch like the other Dishonored games once you stop worrying and love the godlike murder machine rather than trying to play as Garrett. Cranking the difficulty all the way up and then playing lethal seems the most satisfying to me. Story's pretty retardo though, since the Outsider was tolerably entertaining even though they got worse voice actor for 2 and this)
    Deus Ex Mankind Divided DLC 1 and 2 (First DLC's basically just another sizable sidequest from the main game, second DLC's an entirely self contained thing that plays out differently. Pretty good shit)

    Didn't finish a whole hell of a lot, but a significant portion of that time was spent playing Slay the Spire, Gwent before it went off a cliff, and someone bought me the necromancer for Diablo 3 which warranted a hell of a lot of clicking. GotY probably being StS because I loved the shit out of it and intend to play it some more, especially in the event of DLC and may even try some mods out. Also played a lot more than this of course, but this is all I remember 100% I actually FINISHED this year. Pretty sure I'm over halfway through Bard's Tale 4 but I stalled out for example.

    Edit: Just missed out on Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition (First time with EE, unknown with BG) which I knocked out in December. I started Siege of Dragonspear not long after but I never finished it even though I'm pretty sure I'm right fucking near the end and I even had been enjoying it. IIRC I got knocked off track by some other game and then never got back into the groove, although I'll finish it at some point. I thought BGEE was somewhere near the running and I actually had a screenshot of finishing it in December though.

    Games I finished:
    • Hard West - Awesome turn based eerie Wild West action. Some brilliant combat & a fucking LUSH atmosphere & vibe.
    • Dark Souls 3 - Great game until the last 1/4, then starts to drag, but worth finishing.
    • The Sexy Brutale - Only about 10 hours long, but a brilliant quaint little game definitely worth the time to finish.
    • Until Dawn - Not usually one for interactive movie type games, but this REALLY hit the spot with me and I had to finish it.
    • A Bird Story - Another brilliant little quaint game. Again only a few hours long, but I thrived on it.
    • Streets of Rage Remake - Felt really good to reconect with that 90's Beat Em Up vibe again.

    Lots of user made content for HoMM 3, Half-Life, Thief: The Dark Project, and FRUA.

    So I spent nearly one year real time getting from April to September 1999 (with some catching up from previous years) on my chronological play list.
    1999 was definitely a peak year in computer gaming. I wonder if 2000 will out-peak it?

    Icewind Dale2. I finished Insane run, and now middle of Heart of Fury.

    I am contemplating the next game in case I abandon this HoF run. I hesitate between PoE, AoD, and Dungeon Rat.

    EDIT: I blame the dearth of games on the newly found addiction to Chinese-to-Vietnamese amateur novels. It's ocean of shit with quite a few nuggets of gold deep down, so it's a big time waster. Last year it's the Japanese-to-English amateur writings.

    Oxenfree, Dungeons 2, and Jill of the Jungle were free GOG offers, and only 3 of the games on this list were released in 2018. There's plenty of games I wanted to finish this year, but the state they were in was unacceptable. I'll play them in 2019 with the free additional content on top of the fixes.

    And last game to finish 2018 - Brandish: Dark Revenant, in the final area at the moment.
    done, last boss was easy (some bosses from Ys were more challenging tbh) and now exclusive PSP version Dela mode is open, where you replay Ruins section but with more twists and puzzles as an almost naked blonde sorceress that hunts you.

    Been playing mostly adventure games. Hadn't played one in 5+ years, decided to play Gabriel Knight 2 early this year and it kinda escalated from that.

    Gabriel Knight 2
    Secret of Monkey Island
    Monkey Island 2
    Curse of Monkey Island
    Sam & Max Hit the Road
    Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
    Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
    Loom
    Hero's Quest
    Blackwell Legacy
    Blackwell Unbound
    Blackwell Convergence
    Blackwell Deception
    Blackwell Epiphany
    Primordia
    Unavowed
    Full Throttle
    Quest for Glory 2
    Quest for Glory 3
    Quest for Glory 4
    Quest for Glory 5
    Flatout

    Might finish Dark Sun: Shattered Lands and Street Rod 1 before the year runs out. Pretty much abandoned HoMM 3 Shadow of Death in the penultimate map of the bonus campaign cause it was boring and I spent 2016-2017 almost exclusively playing HoMM 2 and HoMM 3 campaigns so I'm pretty burned out on HoMM.

    Lots of user-made stuff for Doom and Thief.

    Subnautica (like everyone else)
    The Mummy: Demastered
    Return of the Obra Dinn
    Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Don't Dry
    Secret of Monkey Island
    for the nth time... but this time in glorious EGA!
    Auf Wiedersehen Monty
    and The Trap Door, both on the Amstrad CPC. Sadly I used cheats for both games, as the former is a considerable challenge and I haven't had the opportunity to try a proper run, and the latter is bugged on the Amstrad so you can't complete the penultimate task of the game... a bug that *somehow* went undiscovered for 32 years.

    Probably some other titles I can't recall at the moment.

    I used occasional (approximately 1 to 3 per game) hints for some (GK2, Monkey 1 and 2, Sam & Max, Indy and the Last Crusade, QfG 4 and 5). I'm most disappointed with myself for using hints for Monkey 2, kinda overdid it in that, used more hints. Used UHS for hints, or the built in hint system for Monkey 1 and 2 (I played the remakes with old graphics but you can still use the hints).

    Before this year the only adventure game that I had ever completed with no hints was Blade Runner though, so I'm still pretty content with myself. Felt especially good to beat Monkey 3 on Mega Monkey without hints.

    This year I've finally found the concept of finshing games fundamentally wrong and got rid of that annoying 'backlog' regrets so I didn't bother to finish a few titles.

    1. Wizardry 4
    2. Nightmare Creatures 1
    3. Mortal Kombat: Special Forces
    4. Mortal Kombat Gold
    6. Mortal Kombat 2 (weird PSX port)
    5. Dragon Ball Z Super Butouden
    6. Tekken 1
    7. Bloody Roar 2

    And separating fighting games arcade ladders, only first three numbers have trve SP campaigns and they're all under 10-12 hours.

    a few hours left in B&W but I have no interest in finishing it


    I always get a few hours away from the end of a game and lose interest, not sure why

    I've had the same issue recently. I just don't care about the plot once the game becomes too easy.

    Nioh - Great and challenging action RPG (mix of Diablo and Dark Souls). Had a lot of fun with it :5/5:
    Red Faction Gorilla - Nonsensical open world game where you can blow every structure up. I played it some years ago just decided to replay it once more. I have a soft spot for these kind of games where you run around a big sandbox and blow shit up with few restrictions. :4/5:
    Etrian Odyssey Untold - Good weeb dungeon crawler. A remake of the original EO game that came out ages ago. :4/5:
    Lords of the Fallen - Decent Dark Souls-like. Bought for like 4 euro on a sale and it was worth it. :3/5:
    Darksiders - Bought it for like 2 euro. Fun game, if a bit easy. :3/5:
    Mary Skelter Nighmares - another weeb dungeon crawler, but not very good. Braindead combat difficulty ruins it but at least exploring the dungeons was fun. :3/5:
    Grim Dawn - Good Diablo clone. :3/5:
    Disciples 3 - Played Disciples 2 a lot as a kid so decided to give it a shot. It had lots of issues on release and even after 2 re-releases it's still very undercooked, buggy and inferior to Disciples 2. But I liked some of the changes and still had fun with the campaigns. :3/5:
