50b. (Second game in the series)

Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen


What It Is: Four short vignettes with comically bad accent translations joining together into an incredibly fun Dragon Quest adventure.

- Definitely a lot of fun and I can understand why a good number of the characters feature across multiple spinoff games like Fortune Street and Dragon Quest Heroes. Beat it over a week ago, but just got wrapped up in other games to post. It was a lot of fun. I'd probably have a better write-up if it were fresher in mind.

6. Beat a game in a completely new series

Risen


What It Is: Commander Shepard is castaway on Koholint and must survive long enough to return the Wind Fish to its slumber and keep the island alive (at the cost of the outside world?).

- Another thanks to @TheArkOfTurus for the Steam key. It was a great struggle early on and in the first fifteen-twenty logged hours (or forty-fifty actual) hours of play. There was a steep power curve to a lot of things and as someone who won't advance the story without searching every nook and cranny available, that led to some really really tough encounters early on that I stubbornly did not back down from. I recall somewhere around level 9 or 10 that I died about fifty times in a row to defeat three ghouls for a box of scraps. Later in the game, I was one shotting those same things without any thought. It was a lot of fun knowing how much danger was lurking and even at the end, fights were still very difficult because a few hits either way ended the fight.

The story was well told and I am so so so very glad there wasn't a weight/inventory limit or else my spirit would have died like in Fallout and Oblivion games. The island was also just big enough that there always seemed to be new paths and places I missed, but compact enough that I never felt too far from actual substance, and the addition of teleports late in the game was a really cool move and much more fun than Quickjumps right from the beginning.

It was a good dungeon crawl/exploration/build up your character kind of game. Would recommend.

47. Play a game that's technically unbeatable for at least six hours

Risk of Rain 2


What It Is: Risk of Rain. In 3D!

- Early alpha and no final boss stuff yet, but with 12 hours logged and likely another 20+, I'm counting this here until, hopefully, things change and I can beat it and move it to 3PS.

Happy to hear at least one person got something out of that topic! Maybe I should probably give it a try myself sometime, it seems like my kind of game.

46. Beat a game that features historical events or people

Fate/Extella Link

Speaking of games of my kind, I hadn't played a Musou game this year. I guess technically I still haven't, but this is close enough. There's a lot wrong from a story perspective, but coming to this as more of a Musou fan than a Fate fan (although I did enjoy FS/N and the Fate/Zero anime,) that wasn't all that big a deal. As a mowing down giant waves of enemies with a variety of interesting characters game, it worked just fine!

46. Beat a game that features historical events or people

Assassin's Creed: Odyssey

Man this game was good. Beat it with 77 hours, the most I've ever spent (and by far the most I've ever needed to spend) on an Assassin's Creed game, and it's pretty easily the best AC game since Black Flag (possibly even better than Black Flag).

It's HUGE, to the point where it's a little overwhelming. It's not a perfect game; some quests feel really padded in for filler, especially once you've already put it a lot of time. A little too much backtracking for my taste as well, and running from objective to objective can really just get exhausting. But the story, boss fights, environment, exploration, visuals, characters, etc are all some of the best this series has ever had.

17. Beat a first-person shooter

Supraland


What It Is: Sandbox metroidvania puzzle platformer.

I had to restart it the first time I played because I did a few two many sequence breaks and had no idea where anything was, and how no optional equipment to help get me back to areas easily. Then... man, the more things you get, the more the place opens up, and now that I have final upgrades.... gliding around the map is so much fun and feels very earned.

Unlike Talos Principle which had very difficult, precise puzzles, but listed per section of the game, Supraland has fundamentally simple puzzles that can take a frustrating amount of time to figure out, especially since its fairly open ended aside from one or two puzzles needed to complete for the next area.

I think I would recommend it. It's quite a bit of fun.
