I recently wrapped up Wolfenstein and have been obsessively playing Assassin’s Creed: Origins, the latter of which I am liking way more than I thought I would (shout out to my partner who convinced me to pick it up at launch). I am also playing XCOM 2: War of the Chosen and jumping into Splatoon 2 matches when I have time. Oh, and I want to go back to Mario’s endgame, continue Life is Strange: Before the Storm and Pyre…put more time into Heat Signature…the new Hitman content and elusive targets I missed…and I bought and haven’t touched Tacoma, Quadrilateral Cowboy, The Evil Within 2, and Dishonored 2: Death of the Outsider.
Am I missing anything? Oh yeah, Rob and Patrick convinced me to download Zombi because I remember liking the hour or so I played of it on Wii U.
And that says nothing of the games I am interested in but haven’t picked up, yet.
While it is certainly an embarrassment of riches, I am starting to wonder why I feel the need to play games like a games journalist. I am an adult with a full time job and there are other things I want to do with my time. Am I really missing out that much by waiting? I recently played through Bloodborne for the first time and it is one of my favorite games of the year. Not to mention I got it for $8.
