I mainly play games for the story and I enjoy almost every type of game unless it's too creepy or hard. My Main Quest consists of steam games, while my Side Quest includes every other platform. I have a RAWG profile where I keep track of all the games I've finished in my whole life.

Goals of 2019:

  • Spend more time playing games instead of on social networks.
  • Reach 100 games finished on Steam. (71 finished at the start of the year).
  • Play more games outside of Steam.
  • 2019

    2018

    Main Quest #43 - 15 June 2019

    What a masterpiece. Although terrifying (and I do not like terror/horror whatsoever piece of media to appreciate) this was beautiful and a must play to anyone who has the chance and can overcome these creepy scenes. Thank you, Ninja Theory, for being able to bring such an important matter into videogames and doing such an exquisite job at doing so.

    Main Quest #42 - 13 June 2019

    Lara Croft GO

    This game actually never got boring, introducing new mechanics in each chapter, and although it had some more complicated levels, it never got too hard. In my opinion, it’s overall a better game than its predecessor, Hitman GO (which I beat last November), I definitely recommend this one to any fan of the genre.

    Side Quest #09 - 09 June 2019

    Snake Pass

    about 6 hours playtime

    The snake was cute as it always got happy when it (I?) collected things. The gameplay was fluid, this game is beautiful and the only problem that I had was with the camera. Fun and relaxing game that I’d recommend to anyone who is a fan of the genre.

    Main Quest #41 - 2 June 2019

    Old Man's Journey

    A beautiful little fun game about an Old Man’s Journey.

    I’ve heard great things about this and it sure was an experience. Beautiful game but I was expecting more from it.

    Main Quest #39 - 28 May 2019

    Max Payne 1

    Max Payne 1

    7/10
    about 9 hours playtime
    no achievements

    May was all about this and June will be about Max Payne 2 (and hopefully July will be about the third installment). The enemy placement and accuracy were a bit nerve straining, making the game feel unnecessary harder than it could’ve been (the dream sequences were just horrible to get through) and noticeably dated, however, the story was kinda good. Hopefully, the next ones are a bit better gameplay wise.

    Side Quest #08 - 25 May 2019

    I had heard a few things about the original comic books and I was lucky enough to win this game based on them on sg. I actually haven’t read them yet (or bought them) but the game was fun enough that I’m now interested in reading them.

    Side Quest #07 - 15 May 2019

    ReCore

    6/10

    The whole story feels like a long chapter 1, leaving many things on the open and no closure. The game mechanics were nice and all but got repetitive after a while.

    Main Quest #37 - 13 May 2019

    Poker Night 2

    Poker Night 2

    7/10
    about 14 hours playtime
    18 of 18 achievements (100%)

    Poker Night 2 is more polished than the first one, the achievements are easier to get done (they don’t require luck, just time) and the dialogues are better and funnier!
