    Credits rolled on Control.
    (Thank you Gamepass! I would not have thought of buying/playing it otherwise.)

    I'm still going to mop-up some left-over missions because the atmosphere in this game is just sooo good, but it can come off my list now.

    What was the judgement on Red Dead Redemption 2 completion? Story done or story plus epilogue?

    Asking for a friend.

    I'd say you need to play the epilogue. For story purposes.

    Your friend sounds needlessly aggressive. Just sayin'

    I think weíd all agree that the game ends right when Icarus and Friends appears on the map. Nothing to do after that. Nope.

    You can take Ministry of broadcast off my list. It was alright for the price I paid.

    Nothing to add at the minute, Octopath and FFX will keep me going for a long while unless something amazing catches my eye to break up The JRPG Marathon.

    I thought that my friend being tongue in cheek didnít need to be said. Seems not. :)

    This sounds so weird. Kind of makes me want to play the game, even though I'm currently bouncing off Odyssey after 20 hours or so.
    Perhaps you should confirm your participation in this most noble of threads. You've clearly lost your way already.

    'I dislike this game in this series, but some random online opinion on the next game in this series that I am presently disliking makes me want to abandon the game in the series I'm presently disliking and start the next game in the series I'm presently disliking in the vague hope that I'll like it more.'

    YOU ARE WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS WORLD, USER MONKMAN76!

    It's a fair point. I'm not going to buy Valhalla though, in my defence. Though I will defend my right to have my curiosity piqued by a random internet person's passing comment to the death (or close).

    I'm not sure if I want to participate to be honest, but I'll go with it for now. Please Phattso and/or DuckBreaker (who am I kidding) put Miles Morales on my list, as I bought it at the PS5 launch and haven't played it for more than half an hour. Everything else I'm currently playing was started before the new year, or is within the 2 hour 'dabbling with Game Pass / PS Plus before committing' phase.

    1. Miles Morales
    2.
    3.
    4.

    (there was a rumour that it was mainly user Samildanach with his virtual hand up the virtual Duck's virtual anus, but that can neither be confirmed nor denied)

    We believe in you, user monkman76. Especially as there's next to fuck all coming out on the PS5 this year - in fact even if all the AAA games slated for release came out your four slots would be enough for them. Rejoice in your high likelihood of success. REJOICE!

    My anal manipulator can continue to remain a source of vague mystery.

    A wise start with only 1 slot filled monkman76. Also, when those sales hit and your itchy trigger finger poises to click Buy, despite likely plenty in the backlog; just think that it will probably be even cheaper in a later sale when you have got further into said backlog. Guaranteed win eh?

    I've done all the main campaign stuff in Destiny 2 Beyond Light by killing Eramis. All that seems left for me is grindy quests for slightly more powerful gear and 50 million bounties and other confusing things.

    Please remove it from my list as I've completed the content I purchased it for and, although I'll definitely be pootling about in it for some time to come, I'm satisfied I've got my money's worth from it after going through Forsaken, Shadowkeep and now Beyond Light.

    That leaves me with:
    1) Assassin's Creed Odyssey
    2) Far Cry 5
    3)
    4)

    Full disclosure that I've recently reinstalled Resident Evil 2 for another run through after finishing Resident Evil 3 a short time ago (before I joined this challenge). As I already own it, and have already finished it, does it count? I'm also going to mess about in RE3 as well concurrently.

    @wuntyate Personally speaking, I'd put a game in a slot if I was replaying it. It'd help me commit to it and actually finish it again, rather than just dipping in and then it drifting back into the ether.
    Perfect example is Resident Evil 0 in my slot.

    But then if you're replaying it, are you going to be upset with yourself if you don't get to the end? Don't think I would. I guess the answer to that tells you if it should be on the list.

    According to the rules lawyering, you can do what you want with a game you already owned and have already rinsed. So by the rules, you're free to do as you please. As people above have said, though: if you want to and intend to play through it why not bung it on your list anyways?

    It's quite short, isn't it? I was eyeing it up in a sale recently. Truefact: forum user Phattso has only ever completed one Resident Evil game, and that was the RE5 in co-op.

    I'd never played a Resident Evil game. Thought the RE2 remake was outstanding, give it a go for sure.

    I'm sure I'll get a few hours into it and then have my head turned by RE3 and I'll abandon it, FOLLOWING YOUR STERLING EXAMPLE! ;)

    A nice touch with the red question marks on the front page Mr Breaker, sir. Itís like a Schrodingerís question mark, it can be a poo or not and no one will know until the post is updated. Iíve always felt sorry for the cat.

    I just had a look at a walkthrough, and Iím three missions from the end of the main story. But there are 20 more after that. 20!!!!

    Not sure why Iím complaining though, itís an amazing game and Iím loving it. Just was hoping to put it on the back burner for a while and try something else for a palate cleanser. But donít wanna risk just forgetting about it.

    RIght, fair is fair and yes, it will commit me to finishing it as I really want to. I'm going to be a bit cheeky and put RE2 & 3 in the same slot as I'll be doing another run of 3 straight after. I'm basically wanting to do one of the main scenarios in 2, then do another run of 3, then do a B scenario in 2. That's the plan anyway. If that works for the almighty quacker that is.

    So therefore my list is:

    1) Assassin's Creed Odyssey
    2) Far Cry 5
    3) Resident Evil 2 AND Resident Evil 3
    4)

    It's not as good as 2 but I really liked it. Apart from Carlos' hair. That upset me more than anything else in the game.

    I will allow it.

    RE2 doesn't officially count as you have not bought a new version of it since beating it originally. However Pigwhippers take note, the ORIGINAL PS RE2 would NOT count if playering REMAKE 2 for the first time. I'll come down hard on such rule bending I tell you.
