    @DUFFMAN5 I was doing well but had some hand surgery that has me in a cast at present. Unless I go through a load of Steam 2-3hr point & clicks when I'm recovered enough I have a feeling I'll be lucky to reach 40/52. Still, when I started this I genuinely thought I wouldn't even get 25 done.

    @Doomspoon
    I know what you mean re the numbers mate. I can't imagine a time I would hit anywhere near 52 games, pretty impressed with the 29 in 2015!

    I tend to only play xbox/ps4 (80% in Xbox favour) so no handhelds/switch, I also do not tend to play "indy" or point and click too much, which you can usually skip through pdq.

    Also I tend to put about 1000 hours per year into whatever Gears I am playing. Come Sept this year it will be Gears 5...52 games 2020 (2019 joint so far) could be my lowest yet.

    I tend to finish with similar results each year (30-35). I go through gaming droughts where I spend my time fiddling with other stuff etc (currently fiddling with some volunteer subtitling which is time consuming). On the plus side this thread does encourage me to play through some of the shorter games every now and then. Most of my games tend to be lengthier stuff like Rpgs which obviously makes things harder. And my irritating habit of switching from something I am making good progress in to something else.

    Effectively Far Cry 5-2 but in a new setting, much shorter but didn't outstay its welcome and enjoyed very much.

    Just over a week until FFVIII so think between now and then, resume Phoenix Wright and CTR.

    @DUFFMAN5 I've had the cast taken off my hand, still have a dressing on at present but can manage short sessions with a joypad, mouse is less uncomfortable. I played my nephew at CTR on Friday and my hand was bloody sore afterwards so I still need to keep things tame a while. I have a few of the Telltale games on various platforms so thinking of going through Tales from the Borderlands and Batman over the next week or so.

    I have the stitches out on Friday so won't have a stupid dressing in the way but have to sleep with a splint on my hand for a few months and expect some soreness in the finger. My hand exercises involve trying to make a fist and pressing the thumb to each finger in turn so it's not that dissimilar to holding a joypad.

    Another excellent Yakuza game done, should probably hold off on starting yet another one so soon though to not get fatigue with the series.

    I just finished the last boss fight and a few trophies to get the platinum on it tonight, despite still recovering from hand surgery. It was annoying me that it was so close to being finished that I had to try and do so.

    I didn't play the original version on the PS1 so it was new to me. It was largely easy apart from trying to get a couple of trophies which required a few replays of levels. I was maybe expecting something that might have been as challenging as some of the Mario games. Still, it was quite fun. I've got the two sequels to play through at some point.

    I was expecting it to be a bit more like Doom 3 after reading somewhere it had horror leanings. It hasn't aged well, it felt a bit like an N64 game. Possibly the whole Native American thing but it felt like a Turok game mixed with some Duke Nukem 3D. much like those games I spent a lot of time going in circles missing switches or doorways that weren't immediately obvious to me. The weapons weren't too brilliant either. The way you can respawn after death and acquire health ahead of your respawning was an interesting mechanic at least.

    Absolutely brilliant campaign and I loved all 13-14 hours in the world.Lots of Lore for fanatics like me. Head and shoulders over Gears 4 campaign. The highest praise I can give is that it can sit along side the original trilogy. I have high hopes for the last chapter in the "new" trilogy.

    I got to two brothers and put it down, it's just not doing enough for me to remain engaged.

    And with that, the trilogy is complete. Do love these games and hope they release the next three on home consoles, loved those on 3DS.

    Back to Control now which I started on Sunday and seems very enjoyable so far...

    I probably wouldn't rate this as high if it wasn't part of Game Pass (and an easy pick up). Fun little bullet-hell-come-pinball game with a curious story and a great art style. I recommend it to anyone who can just jump in like I did. 7/10
