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.

Main Quest #91 - 01 April 2020

Okay.

Main Quest #90 - 31 March 2020

Half-Life: Blue Shift

Half-Life: Blue Shift

6/10
about 4 hours playtime

I feel like this is still a good expansion but not as good as Opposing Force is. It’s basically a game about how a security officer and a couple of scientists tried to escape and successfully did it without much of a “hassle”. Pratically nothing new that haven’t seen so far in Half-Life and Opposing Force.

Main Quest #89 - 30 March 2020

Valiant Hearts: The Great War

What a fantastic game! I’ve been dying to play this since forever, and while I had great expectations for this game, I still completely fell in love with it. I loved the characters, the story (partly because I’m interested in the stories of both world wars), the art and the music. Even the car levels, which could be a bit annoying for some, it wasn’t for me. Definitely recommended to everyone!
This game was so good that I even want to make a game now.

Main Quest #88 - 29 March 2020

Fun little game that very much reminds me of Life is Strange. Nice one to play for the monthly theme, and it’s free!

Main Quest #87 - 28 March 2020

Half-Life: Opposing Force

I actually think I prefer this one to the base game more due to the pacing of the campaign and being more balanced. The concept is really interesting as we get to see the main story from the side of the military. I do enjoyed the campaign of the original more, but other than that, nothing much is different.
Onto Blue Shift now!

Main Quest #86 - 26 March 2020

The LEGO® Movie - Videogame

Classic LEGO game but about the LEGO Movie (which I adored). Fun to play through, especially after only having played LEGO Harry Potter, it’s nice to see the improvements overall, although this recent one felt less refined, with various gameplay and visual bugs (thankfully none game breaking). Oh, and the cutscenes seemed ripped from a cam version of the movie, all blurry and stuff. No idea why.

Main Quest #85 - 24 March 2020

Half-Life

Half-Life

6/10
about 12 hours playtime

Well, that was definitely an experience. I took the opportunity it was free because of the release of Half-Life: Alyx (I don’t know why but I only own the second game) and finally played this. The gameplay was okay enough (as were the graphics) but the platform scenes in Xen were especially frustrating (thank god for quick saves). The story was nothing special but still interesting enough to keep playing! I really liked the level design and maps overall. Maybe one day I’ll be able to replay “it” through Black Mesa, when it gets cheaper.
I’m playing Opposing Forces and Blue Shift next (still in March, hopefully. I’ve heard they are short and wanna take advantage of the offer) and then maybe play the sequels in April and watch a walkthrough of Alyx. Who knows. There will also be a free week of Gears 5 starting April 6 so I’ll try to use that and beat its story. I’ve only played the first one long ago at a friend’s house and watched walkthroughs of the remaining games, but I still do enjoy them and wanna play through the fifth game.

Main Quest #84 - 21 March 2020

Broken Sword 2 - the Smoking Mirror: Remastered

LEGO: Harry Potter Years 5-7

7/10
about 13 hours playtime
no achievements

Guess who’s back! Hopefully me.
With a game I started in December, in the hopes that I’d be motivated enough to play since I love both LEGO and Harry Potter, but it didn’t worked out as planned. Now that I’m in quarantine, we (my sister and I) decided to get back to this and finally finished it.
I’ve also been playing Two Point Hospital with my sister in co-op and a few other games.

This was the first game I finished this year. Last year I had already finished 11 games by now, but I burned out so much that I barely played in the last few weeks of the year. Let’s see how 2020 goes!

Main Quest #83 - 12 November 2019

Broken Sword 2 - the Smoking Mirror: Remastered

I’ve got my hands on the second game recently so I decided to jump right in since it’s a good game to do exactly that: jump in and out whenever you want. It’s a decent sequel but nothing extraordinary.

Main Quest #82 - 03 November 2019

The Franz Kafka Videogame

5/10
about 2 hours playtime

This was as short as it was disappointing. The puzzles made no sense and I didn’t learn a single thing about Franz Kafka. Only played because it’s a fast +1 to the list of finished games and because it was part of the monthly theme.
