Forums - Gaming Discussion - List of Games You've Beaten 2020

So far just:

Diablo 3 (actually got it for xmas LAST year but had a ton of games to burn through, and that's a long ass game ha!) 
Superhot (definitely lived up to its name. Loved it!)

Another one bites the dust:

Snake Pass (SW)
Well. This game was an experience for sure, but sadly in the wrong way. I really liked the concept but the controls and the camera were just too darn frustrating for me to enjoy the game. The level design wasn't very impressive either and really could've needed some variation.



Finished:

Sunset Overdrive - PC

Sonic CD - PC - Savior of the Planet run.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider - PC

The Messenger - NS - Picnic Panic DLC

Tangle Tower - NS

Beaten so far:

Shenmue 3
Pokemon Sword
Luigi's Mansion 3

Currently Playing:

Subnautica
Control
Death Stranding
Jamestown + (could probably put this in the beaten category but there is one extra mission I still didn't do)
Cities Skylines
TemTem (just got it yesterday)
CrossCode (really cool and extremely well-polished indie game I found on Steam, still in Early Access)

I play a lot of games, so I'm probably missing quite a few. Also, some of these were right around the new year and may have, in fact, happened last year. Also, some of my "currently playing" I may never play again, but I haven't yet consciously determined that I'm done with them. I also tried out a couple of the free EGS games like Farming Simulator 19, Braid, and a couple others which I can recall playing this year but not their names. Briefly checked out Path of Exile to see what new things are in the game since I last played (and since Tencent took over).



Haven't beaten any game yet, played a bunch of Thief fan missions, Fallout New Vegas with mods, and Dirt2 online on PS3.

Boy was that final boss fight in Sekiro amazing... I think I'm going to buy Dark Souls on Switch now and replay that.



Finished Games: 

  • Nier: Automata (PS4) (9.5/10) One of the best stories I've ever experienced in video games with wonderfully written characters, combined with a huge amount of gameplay variety and a fun and fast-paced combat system, which had been the weak point in Yoko Taro's earlier works. Easily going to make my top 50 games of all time list this year.
  • GRIS (PC) (8/10) An absolutely gorgeous 2D platformer, easily one of the best looking games I've ever played, with a beautiful soundtrack layered on top of it all. The actual gameplay is quite simple, but solid, and there are some very satisfying moments of platforming in the game, even if none of it is all that challenging. It is a very short game, but every moment I spent with GRIS was thoroughly enjoyable.
  • Middle-Earth: Shadow of War (PS4) (8/10) A solid open world game made better by the nemesis system that did the same for Shadow of Mordor. The gameplay is fun, the world has a lot of nice variety to it, and although the story is kinda silly in the context of the books, but as a kind of non-canon side thing it's fine enough. Gets a bit grindy at the end, which soured me a little towards it, but it wasn't too bad. If the epilogue had been like in the original release before the balance changes and the removal of lootboxes I probably would have not been nearly as kind towards the game, but as it stands now I do recommend Shadow of War. 

Currently Playing:

  • The Banner Saga 2 (PC)
