Bonus question: How many games have you bought in 2020 so far? New releases and games released before 2020 are eligible.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Wasteland 3

Bonus answer: 9 (4 games from 2020)

Ride The Chariot

There is a very strong chance that I won't buy any game that is released this month. Maybe FF Crystal Chronicles. Maybe.

Bonus: I think I've bought 5 games this year, but I had a really big backlog. I'm definitely playing a lot more games this year than I did last year.

There’s games being released in august?

Bonus question; 20. I bought 20 classic Star Wars games on Steam in may when they had a massive discount. I don’t think I bought an actual new game this year.

Nothing this month.

Bonus: 2. 1 was a Vita game, the 2nd was a former Vita game being re-released on Steam. I guess that means the latter was technically a 2020 release? But I wouldn't count it as such, so no 2020 games for me so far.

Would've voted Kingdoms of Amalur, but apparently that's a September release?

I'll go Wasteland 3.

Bonus: I picked up an Xbox One X and did my fair share of swimming through bargain bins lately (that time of the gen). A bunch of games for other systems too. Don't even want to try counting them, or thinking about my backlog...

Nothing this month. Might get the Mafia Trilogy sometime in the future.

Kingdoms of Amalur is September btw

Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

Having played through 1+2, Wasteland 3 is a no-brainer.

Just hope it's not again against Base Cochise...

As for the bonus question: 400+ ( Bundle for racial justice and equality with over 900 items including assets and programs did almost all the work here)

Only one I am interested in on the list is Crystal Chronicles and I'll probably wait until later to buy it.

This year I have bought
Ghost of Tsushima
Journey to the Savage Planet
Boxboy! + Boxgirl!
What the Golf?
Monster Boy
Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Paper Mario: The Origami King

I have bought 5 games that came out this year (Journey to the Savage Planet, Animal Crossing: NH, Paper Mario: The Origami King, What the Golf? and Ghost of Tsushima). My SO bought FFVII so I am not counting that in my list. Also, buying the Destroy All Humans remake tomorrow (who knows when I'll get to play it though).
