Hoardz of gamez Mskotor’s profile

I try to get rid of my hoard of unplayed games. It's not much, but still it's some kind of backlog, right?

I give priority to my wins from SG, though it still can take me few months to beat long ones (like Fallout 4 or Skyrim: Legendary).

Also short legend on my scale:

⭐️⭐⭐⭐⭐ - game I really enjoyed. For either really good story or humor. It can has flaws, but they are minimal in comparison to fun I had with it

⭐️⭐⭐⭐☆ - game I enjoyed, but has it’s visible flaws that can make gameplay annoying. Or games with solid gameplay and good story, but without this something that would make me really enjoy it

⭐️⭐⭐☆☆ - starting point. Neither good or bad. Average story with average gameplay

⭐️⭐☆☆☆ - when game has average story, so I could beat it to see plot but it didn’t make me want learn more about characters or universe. Plus gameplay is so bad it make whole experience terribly annoying and irritating

⭐️☆☆☆☆ - only one type of games will get lowest note. Games that are unplayable or barely playable due to devs laziness. And their story is not interesting enough to push me into spending hours on the internet, finding a way to make it work. If game would be playable, but I wouldn’t enjoy plot or it’d have bad game mechanics it’d get 2 stars


Winter Sale 2020 update


I bought literally nothing this sale. Not on Steam, not in other shops:

1) I saw that none of the games on sale have bigger discounts than during past Summer Sale. Or last Winter Sale. So there is no feeling of “oh nice discount, I need to have it”
2) I went through Steam, Epic, GOG etc. and checked how long it would take me to beat the games I have, with the amount of gaming I was doing recently. And calculator said I have enough games for at least 9 months :ok_hand:

So I will just list one game I get as a gift this sale, and games that I have on all the platforms as “to beat in 2021” guide. Add gameplay time from HLTB

December update

Over all back log prog ress :
27% completed
58% beaten
1% unfinished
1% never played
13% won't play

End of the year 2019 stats


  1. Beaten 28 games:
    • 1 Uplay game
    • 1 Android game
    • 9 Xbox Game Pass games
    • 18 Steam games
  2. Favorite game beaten in 2020: Ori and the Will of the Wisps
  3. Worst game beaten in 2020: The Division
  4. Longest game beaten: Pillars of Eternity - 59h
  5. Shortest game beaten: What Remains of Edith Finch - 2h
  6. In 2019 I’ve beaten 19 games - 9 less than in 2020
    • I bought PC in Jan 2020, which finally gave me ability to play games normally
    • working the afternoon shift leaves me with just a bit of time in the morning and in the late evening - which is not good for longer games

Methodology:

  • games bought before Steam Winter sale 2019 count as added in December 2019
  • games bought from start of Winter Sale 2019 to the end of January 2020 count as January 2020 additions

I do buy games during winter sale to beat them next year, so it makes most sense.

Green columns shows games beaten on Steam, blue on other platforms. They are stacked, so in March I’ve beaten 2 games on Steam, and 1 somewhere else.


I also made graph that shows my progress from the time I started to write down my percentages

Great purge is a time when I removed, in a span of 3 months, 59 games from my account (I was close to 500, so it was more than 10% of my library). It was also time when I really sorted my library and moved a lot from unfinished to won’t play. I removed few at the end of 2020 as well, so 3 years later I’m still barely above 500 games owned :D

I barely bought any games this year, and when I did summary of what I have still to play I also did not buy anything during Winter Sale, as I decided I have more than enough games to play till at least Summer Sale. If not longer.




November 2020 update

Overall backlog progress :
26% completed

Side note


I will go home for Christmas after all :D Well, we will have X-mas dinner early but it was the same last year. My manager told me it’s fine to make test before coming to work, and if it’s negative I don’t need to quarantine. They also dropped lockdown in the UK today ( the day I fly out), so no idea if there will be even requirement for quarantine when I will be back. They were writing something about after-coming testing to shorten it. But as always with British gov - everything takes forever. And they can’t even say what their plan will be in 2 weeks. Like with Brexit. We will see. But lack of clear communication is bad. Just like people in Poland learned 2 days before All Saint’s Day that graveyards will be closed this year. 10/10.

I did buy Wolfenstein 2 this autumn sale, mostly as I will have now time off. Not around January. But I will count it towards any games I will buy during winter sale.

And UK is in another lockdown. Till 2nd Dec, at least for now. With ban on travel I will not be able to see my family. Yay?

I will sit for 2 weeks in my room, playing games most probably :thinking: I may be able to beat my backlog finally.

Anyone else strangled away from family or friends for Christmas? I will need to listen to All I want for Christmas a lot to cheer myself up :eyes:

The Division summary may be bit random, but I did not want to spend more than the minimum required time to write it. I did not even read it 2nd time, it’s not worth the effort :P Also looks like Uplay don’t have any place where they show in neat way number of achievements, just page where they show which ones are unlocked. So no screenshot this time.

I was bit disappointed in the Bloodstained, hoped it will be more like Hollow Knight. I did beat two Castlevania games before, but they felt more platform focused, not bosses focused.

I saw tear down of PS5… and this console is huge. I think I will really wait for them to release some slim version, as this console is the size of my 24’ monitor…

Did I tell XboX app is bad? I think I did. They did move out of the beta, rise subscription fee. And it still takes few seconds to even load the app, same to load game page. But at least games now start immediately, there is no need to click double on the play button. It still does not follow achievements and other game statistics properly. Even in MS own game - Halo.

What I learned is that Microsoft decided that Xbox app and Xbox game bar are necessary parts of the Windows10. Which means it’s not possible to just remove them if you no longer need those. Charming. I did remove them with use of console and long commands, but really? Previously those two could be at least removed through Windows store, but now option is either greyed out or straight missing. 10/10.

But my subscription run over, so I’m back to playing on Steam. I started Heat Signature. Overally XBox offer was a good one, but their launcher app is bad. Even Origin or Uplay works better in my experience. They can start game properly, and don’t take so long to load anything.

Another month with pretty much only XboX game pass games beaten. And their launcher is as bad as it was month ago :hehe: Why even list stats of Dead Cells on the profile, when everything is “ - “.

There were 3 - 4 days of heatwave here, and we’re back at 20C and cloudy. Yay UK.

I am left with 1 month of GamePass. So I will skip Yakuza games for now. They are really long, and I don’t want to rush those.

Summer Sale 2020 update


I forgot to post an update from this sale, as I did not buy anything :hehe_dogo:. It’s because I remembered that I have code for 3 months for Xbox Game Pass laying around, and activated it.

I may not have time to play everything from to-beat list, so I will need to prioritize something.

In general Xbox Game Pass is really good offer, but price in comparison to say EA Origin Access is high. I can have EA OA for 15 pounds per year, and one month of Xbox GP is 8 pounds. I may pay for one month if I really want to complete some game, but I will not pay 100 pounds to keep it for a year.

But their PC app is still in beta, and it’s shit:

  • It does not show any profile data (playtime, achievements etc.)
  • Achievement pop ups does not work for me
  • It takes too long to open the app when it’s minimized in the tray (should not take solid few seconds to see green XboX logo on SSD drive)
  • Starting the game is broken, and it may be needed to click to play game twice, as first try just minimized Xbox app without starting anything
  • No offline mode if there is no internet connection
  • Settings are limited to changing installation folder, and if it should start with windows
  • Not possible to start game from the tray level, need to bring up whole application

I know, I know. BETA. But it can’t even do properly the things it was made for - starting the game without hassle. So I dunno. MS needs to work on this thing a long time, for it to be on pair with Steam or Origin.

Edit - someone told me that Metro: Exodus is no longer in the Game Pass. Imagine paying for a month to see game disappears shortly after xD They don’t even show exactly when game is removed, only says “soon”. Another minus for whole service. They should be more open about when game is removed from the service.

Xbox Game Pass is neat offer on PC, especially that I get 3 months for free with my PC. But it is shit in some areas. It’s still in beta though, so hope it will get bet better as full release:

  • sometimes it’s needed to click twice to start the game, first click just minimizes Xbox app and nothing happens
  • requires Windows 10 to work
  • achievements pop ups are tied to Windows notifications, I turned notifications off first thing after I installed OS and was puzzled why I don’t see achievement prompt on the screen
  • client does not track gameplay time, so I have no idea how long I played Plague Tale or now Dead Cells
  • achievements progress is shown as percentage of owned points, not number of achievements
  • not possible to start a game without internet, even when it’s not a streaming service

But it has couple of games I wanted to play. So I will focus for the next 2 months on beating games here. I already beat Ori and Plague Tale, now try Dead Cells. Have 8 more in the queue, but will make separate “Steam Sale” post about those :P

So far I was using <p> </p> to divide text into easier to read chunks. Looks like you can get similar effect with simple line break <hr>. The more you know.

My number of not played and started games is so low that it does not even record change when I beat something. I always wanted to have less than 500 games (where doable), so I should think of removing some trash from account before the next sale.

Next sale is in 2 weeks. Do you have game that you want surely buy? For me it’s mostly “which game from my wish list hits -75%”. Well maybe top 4 I would be willing to buy with -66% :thinking:

I realized that with so many new people here, and my spare time I don’t even have time to come here. It would be easier for me to follow what’s going on if main page would be divided by days, instead of having infinite scroll. I could just quickly browse page at the end of each day, instead of thinking about infinite poll of new posts that will take me forever to browse. There is something I really dislike with infinite scroll option, don’t really know why. It’s the same on every news site I try to browse. I prefer to have page that starts and ends in certain point, not load content forever.
