So, after finishing Last of Us last weekend, I've been floundering around for what to play next. Don't get me wrong, there are a TON of games I want to play, but my birthday is coming up so I am resisting purchasing anything right now in the hopes that I will get at least one game on March 4th.
Plus, I've got that good-game hangover, the same way I get good-book hangovers, and nothing I play even comes close to being as enjoyable as Last of Us so now I've just started powering through games I left half finished for the thrill of getting the final achievement.
I got through all of the main quest memories in Assassin's Creed: Unity (though there are SO MANY SIDE QUESTS and DLC in that game, I swear I will never finish it). I also played through the end of Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China, which was a free game a few months ago...or maybe last year. Whatever, I made it through and got the rare achievement (because Xbox is now ranking them based on what percentage of players that own a game actually get that achievement, which is hilarious because if you look at HUGE games like AC:U, pretty much anything after the 5th memory is rare because so few people play the main story that far - they get distracted by side quests or multiplayer or a new game.)
Tonight I picked up Child of Light again, which is a GORGEOUS turn based RPG by Ubisoft. I had been stuck on a boss and given up but coming back to it after a break was good and I got the hang of it again, managed to get past where I was stuck.
I should pick up Uncharted 2 where I left off, another game I've had for years that I needed a break from after a frustrating battle sequence. I do feel like that game series really shows its age when it comes to the controls.
And these are just the CONSOLE games I have languishing...obviously Stardew Valley is still sitting on my PC, waiting for me to keep going...I'm not sure if that game ever actually ends...I do still have the one quest from the "mysterious Qi" but that is it.
