    @Phattso I've done it! It is complete! I had a day off work and seeing as I hadn't start Dragon Quest Builders anytime soon, I found myself mustering up the enthusiasm to go back and finish Octopath Traveller. It is done! \o/

    Done all 4 Divine Beasts now. Looks like I was far closer to finishing BotW than I thought.

    At well over 100 hours in and only 2 Beasts done I thought I needed to put in at least another 100 hours to complete it which was more than I could muster. Looks like I will be able to reach the credits long before then. (Although there will still be lots of quests and shrines to do).

    I will take a swing at Ganon this week and see how I fair. If I smash him I will then consider getting the DLC later in the year to give more to do during the mop up.

    Regrettably I'm going to have to admit failure. I impulse bought Mario Maker 2 at the weekend which puts me onto 6 games. I could argue that Beat Saber is *done* as the campaign doesn't do it for me but if I'm really honest I've not played it enough.

    Going back to Octopath and sticking it on my list was probably a bad idea, I really like the game in parts but find it a bit of a slog and too repetitive. If I do ever finish it I doubt it'll be this year.

    Platinumed Assassinís Creed Origins and Spider-Man during a late night session while the bairn was feeling sick, so to celebrate Iíve picked Mirrorís Edge Catalyst from the backlog.

    It only cost £5 so Iím prepared to overlook any rough edges, going for story completion.

    Credits rolled on Cadence of Hyrule! Lovely game, but a bit on the short side (which I new beforehand). According to my savegame it took me just under 12 hours to finish. The music is great!

    I had to use +10 Willpower to resist the humble bundle - really want to play Kingdom Come.

    Days Gone is taking a long ass time but I'm enjoying it, the main character is just so unintentionally hilarious.

    So, erm Nioh - I have a feeling I'm not going to get back into this after over a year out. Technically I did start it waaaaaay before this whole thing kicked off, so is it technically valid, y'know, technically?

    Games you started on or before the 25th of December 2018 will not consume a slot.
    I put it on their cos I do really want to finish it, but there are so many shiny new games out there...

    AbzŁ and Until Dawn are complete.

    The longer and more difficult games remain on my slate. Maybe I just don't have what it takes to tackle those sort of games anymore due to being more time poor these days.

    I really want to finish it, just have no desire to atm and its taking up a precious slot.

    tbf if this thread had been around when I was playing Nioh in the first place, I wouldn't have abandoned it to play Prey. Probably.

    Rolled the credits on The Council! That frees up another slot. :)

    So... it's either back to Battletech or start on 2-point Hospital.

    Please add Forza Horizon 4 to my list. As I never finished FH3, it'll probably be staying there...

    Iím enjoying Mirrors Edge Catalyst but my god are there some weird design choices. An upgrade tree that locks out some abilities until youíve advanced the story enough? Mandatory combat, because that was clearly the best bit of the original.

    If it wasnít for the sheer joy of running around Glass Iíd be looking to stop, but thatís still massive amounts of fun.

    I think I forgot to mention that I recently bought Test Drive Unlimited (the first one, for PC, from 2006). So that's me with 4 slots taken and with one other game that I know of that I will probably be getting later this year.

    As we're just over halfway through the year, it seems a good time for a recap of what I've currently got on my list and their completion target and status:

    1. Puyo Puyo Champions - only played a few times so far, got it mainly for local multiplayer; not sure what the completion target should be.

    2. Dangerous Driving - the target would be to finish every race, but that's not going to happen as I've been unable to complete the currently-unlocked races and I don't have the time and patience to retry an event dozens of times.

    3. Forza Horizon 4 - only just purchased, target would be to get to the end of the story and/or complete every race (not sure, as I've only done 3 events so far).

    4. Test Drive Unlimited - again, recently purchased, so not got far; target would be to finish every race and mission.

    With The Crew 2, Resogun and Burnout Paradise Remastered taking some of my time, I don't think any of these are going to get done any time soon. But, hey, aracde racing is dead, right?

    You can cross Battle Chasers off my list, finished rinsing it this morning. As great as the game is, I don't think I'll be going for the final achievement "Complete New Game +"

    Highly recommended game though.

    🦆&🎯 Golf Peaks

    Clever little Indie puzzle game. Saw it in a best games on Switch for under $5 YouTube video and thought it looked interesting.

    Well worth the price.

    Credits rolled on Dragonís Dogma after about 35 hours. Still not sure how I feel about the game. Had to Ďcheatí with high level pawns just to play the thing, and knocked the final battle down to easy after a wave of apathy.

    Started the endgame. Now Iím stuck in some endless loop. I so dearly want to love this game, but it really makes it hard. :)

    Anyways. I think Iíve persevered with it enough to take it off the list, and despite fans saying the real game is only just beginning Iím not sure how I feel about a 40hr tutorial so Iím probably done.

    Honestly a big part of me wanted to bin it after ten hours. Iíll no doubt begin frantic googling to see what the hell itís all about and what the end game actually is. Might play some more, itís kinda relaxing in a pipe and slippers kinda way.

    @Phattso

    Life is too short for mediocre games. Play something better. I see you haven't really put any time into:

    Your Doodles Are Bugged
    Volume
    Really Big Sky
    Crimson Clover World Ignition (it's quite good!)
    Crimsonland (also quite good)
    Life Is Strange

    You have 508 games on steam, and I had to scroll veerrrrryyyyyy far down the list before I found games with '0.1' hours of play on record.

    There are relatively few things on my backlog that I genuinely want to put time into. The Witcher 3 is one, Life is Strange is another for sure. A lot of the rest is Bundle Fodder.

    But right now, with it being summer, the room the PC is in gets stupid hot. Hence Dragon's Dogma and Virtua Racing on the Switch. :)

    Thats a good thing though, right? :)

    Stunned it's only 508 TBH. I've had that account since Steam was born. :)

    Also Dragon's Dogma is far from mediocre... it's just a bit baffling, and a lot janky. :)

    Yeah it's a weird game. I do think you're missing out by not trying the expansion content (some of the best fights are there), but you still finished it!
