The never ending struggle of beating the backlog.
I intend to beat all the (acceptable) games in my library. This promise has taken me way too many years and is still in progress. I don’t intend to complete games. Aiming to get 100% rate is not worth it for me. Completing the main campaign (or similar) and getting as many achievements on the way counts as beating the game for me.
Had couple games that I have had lots of trouble beating:
- Hammerwatch: Temple of the Sun campaign
Eldritch requires you to complete the whole game in a single session. There is no save option. It is a stealth/adventure roguelike. The core game loop is tedious. Basically Spelunky as 3D version but in everyway worse. You can finish the game under 10 mins but it is hard (to beat in general regardless of time).
I beat the main campaign of Hammerwatch some years ago in coop. It had another campaign called Temple of the Sun. During summer I took it under progress and reached the final boss and it final phase. I have never seen more unfair boss fight. I left negative review for that game simply because of that single boss fight. Couldn’t beat it no matter how I tried. Cannot change difficulty after starting. Couldn’t ask friend to help because single and multiplayer saves are separate.
So I removed both of them permanently from my library.
Started categorizing games. Noticed that some of them seem to be missing achievement. I guess at least couple of those have had achievements added after I beat the game. Also, got way too many remaster etc. versions of games where I have beaten the original one.
