I really hung out with that Animal Crossing game when it first came out and everything hit. I spent a lot of time just moseying around in ways I typically don’t. When looking at my phone I’d just lay down on my beach hammock and take in the ambience.
Played through Doom Eternal out of a weird feeling of obligation since I’ve played through so many others. I didn’t care too much for it.
Went through an RPG binge with Final Fantasy VII Remake, Xenoblade Chronicles, Dragon Quedt Builders, and then Final Fantasy X and X2. I would normally never play this many long JRPGs back to back but I’ve been really plugging away at them.
Also played Penny-Punching Princess which was kind of okay. Then Code of Princess which wasn’t.
Lately I’ve been playing the Ys series in kind-of order. I had already played 1 and 2.
Ys III: The Wanderers from Ys
Ys: The Oath in Felghana
Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys
Ys: Memories of Celceta
Ys V: Lost Kelfin, Kingdom of Sand
Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim
Just took a break to play Journey to the Savage Planet (didn’t like it). Tomorrow I’ll likely start Ys Seven.
Yeah, I’m definitely playing more this year and more from “the backlog”. I haven’t been purchasing the big new releases in ways I have in the past.
Edit: Also played Fall Guys, Adventures of Lolo II (Japanese version), Exit the Gungeon, Streets of Rage 4, and a few odds and ends and various roms.
