    On the subject of Portal....

    Bridge Constructor Portal (Xbone)

    So, I navigate a fiddly menu system to lay some bridge bits.... And then spend ages creating tiny triangles in order to support the bridge. To then watch a buggy fly through the air after taking off of a bridge and hope the trajectory is right to go through a portal.

    No!

    Utter dross.

    I quite liked it, although I can definitely see why most people would not.

    I did complete it back in the days, but i repeatedly stopped my replays in the liquid part because it's such an endless depressing slog

    Wolfenstein Youngblood (PC Gamepass) - not for me. The amount of polish is incredible, how do they make the two heroines have such amazing shiny eyes I wonder. Other than that, ugh... Just no.

    Ok, so I'm adding Ori to my "not on your fucking life, I got through Horace somehow and that was enough" list.

    Edit: Though by the sound of things, Ori isn't actually as bad as Horace.
    It will depend. I have a low tolerance to sections in games where there's no breathing room and it goes on for an extended amount of time. I don't mind really hard bits where I can prepare in advance and then give it a go, but later on in ori (6 or 7 hours in, in the misty woods for people that have played it) I just realised that the whole game was preparing you for these said tricky sections as they are out in earnest later on. Couldn't get on with that. You might though. The challenge, and all that. Whatever the fuck that is.
    Just reloaded this and thatís where I am, itís just too finickety, and reliant on the right combat run through, itía just frustrating, and reminds me of the game at its worst. Hard to get back into from here.

    Yeah I agree with that too. It isn't hard - you just have to get into the mindset to do it. I can't be arsed with getting into that mindset because it feels like a waste of time so I out something else on that I enjoy instead.

    Oh yeah 100% agree... there were clearly points in the game that i just had to push through because it was pretty as opposed to enjoying the gameplay.

    It was a good game though, just a few annoying sections.

    Well, Sekiro was hard too.

    I spent my entire time playing that game convinced I had hit the brick wall that was going to end my time with it.

    Yeah my time is limited for those types of games. I used to push through them but I can't be arsed anymore

    Iím close to completing Ori and Iím generally quite shit at games.

    Edit: To be fair Iíve been really enjoying the game and the difficulty of a game is obviously affected by how much youíre enjoying it, including how willing you are to persevere with its challenging moments.

    I abandoned Bloodstained recently and just wasnít having fun with it, to the point where every boss fought that I wasnít beating on my first attempt made me consider dropping the game.

    @Dombat

    Yeah I'm the same - if I'm not enjoying it, it gets binned. I'm playing through resident evil 4 again in the Wii for the same reason that it clicks and I love shooting zombies in the face, even if it hasn't aged that well!

    @quadfather I only played RE4 for the first time ever last month. Stunned by how amazing it is even after all these years.

    Yup. Has always been one of my regrets missing it. It came out at the time that I'd pretty much ditched gaming for quite a few years so it completely bypassed me. THat's been rectified now. Utterly brilliant.

    @quaddy PS4 version. Took a bit of getting used to at first but once it clicked it was grand.
