39Ys II Chronicles+PC9h23-Sep-2023★★★☆☆Huge improvement overall, but the bosses were frustrating. I still used a guide and played on easy and would not have finished it otherwise.
38Ys I Chronicles+PC7h12-Sep-2023★★☆☆☆More like 2½ but rounding it down felt better than rounding it up. I had a pretty good time with this but I played it on easy and used a guide since I generally have no patience for older games. If I hadn't done that I would probably have dropped it, especially at that terrible bat boss...
37FRAMEDPC1hY5-Sep-2023★★★☆☆Picked this up to have something to play for a couple of minutes here and there. It's fine but very simple and took less than an hour to go through.
36Guild Wars 2: Secrets of the Obscure - Part 1PC27-Aug-2023★★★★★
35Guild Wars 2: End of DragonsPC22-Aug-2023★★★★☆
34Guild Wars 2: The Icebrood SagaPC20-Aug-2023★★★★☆
33Guild Wars 2: Season 4PCY16-Aug-2023★★★★★
32Guild Wars 2: Path of FirePCY14-Aug-2023★★★★★
31Guild Wars 2: Season 3PCY12-Aug-2023★★★★☆
30Guild Wars 2: Heart of ThornsPCY6-Aug-2023★★★★☆
Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood - A Requiem for Heroes
PC6-Aug-2023★★☆☆☆Most of the post SB-patches are the same boring stuff as most of SB was. It's somewhat saved by the slightly interesting buildup to Shadowbringers and some really nice raids and such.
28Fall GuysPC3h2-Aug-2023★★☆☆☆
Counting this as a beaten game based on the 3 crown wins criteria from Game Club. I can see how this is fun with friends when you can fill the wait times with chatter and whatnot but my own solo experience was filled with connection issues, crashes and extremely long load times. When I got to play the levels I enjoyed I had a really good time, but sadly those levels were few and far between.
27Guild Wars 2: Season 2PCY27-Jul-2023★★★★☆Not the most consistent part of the game but it has some very high peaks and builds up towards the Heart of Thorns expansion in a great way.
26Guild Wars 2: Season 1PCY22-Jul-2023★★★★☆
What is now called "Season 1 (2013)" cannot be replayed since it was a "be there or miss it" kind of deal that happened in the open world instead of instances. They salvaged what they could and made this revised version that is great for what it is, but I still miss all the content they couldn't restore.
25Guild Wars 2PCY11-Jul-2023★★★☆☆Feels weird to give this game a 3 since it's my fav game ever. Anything but the story is hard to score tho since everything else has been changed by countless updates since the release in 2012, and the story is quite weak after the inital two chapters.
PARANORMASIGHT: The Seven Mysteries of Honjo
PC10h5-Jul-2023★★★★★A great visual novel with some real spooky vibes and dark themes. Presentation is top notch, especially the visuals, and I really liked pretty much every character. The predictability and linearity doesn't really hurt the experience, it still managed to capture me completely.
23Dying Light: HellraidPC5h3-Jul-2023★★★★☆
22A Little to the LeftPC6h3-Jul-2023★★★★☆
21Glass Masquerade 3: HoneylinesPC10h2-Jul-2023★★★★★
18Planet of LanaPC3h2-Jun-2023★★★★☆The most Inside-like game since Inside, and while it felt a little too similar at times and was more of a story experience than a puzzle platformer, it had some really great and unique vibes with the superb visual style and sounds.
17Werewolf: The Apocalypse - EarthbloodPS55h30-May-2023★★★☆☆Did you know this game has pump action rifle with holographic sights? Because if you don't, they tell you. Multiple times. Decent action romp in any case.
16PowerWash Simulator: Tomb RaiderPC4h20-May-2023★★★★☆More PowerWash Sim is always good. Some fun references and whatnot from Tomb Raider which was fun.
15Beasts of Maravilla IslandPC3h15-May-2023★★★☆☆I'm not sure what I think of this. It was cute but kinda forgettable.
14Alice in Wonderland - A Jigsaw Puzzle TalePC35h14-May-2023★★★☆☆Mostly very similar to the other Jigsaw Puzzle Tale games but it had double the amount of puzzles! It definitely made it more fun at the start but also made it drag on for way too long. I'm very tired of the tale of Alice now.
I know the devs were going for a "cinematic narrative experience" rather than a puzzle game but I would still have liked it way more if it wasn't this easy. I had a good grasp of the answers from the first listen, and listening back repeatedly was mostly done to get the full story of each scenario, which were by themselves pretty interesting.
12Final Fantasy XIV: StormbloodPC60h27-Apr-2023★★☆☆☆Feels mean to give SB such a bad score but it's a terribly paced expansion with a very disjointed story. Like most parts of FFXIV they clearly want to base the game around two topics but they don't flow together that well. The dungeons and such were fine tho.
11Cube Escape: The LakePC<30m6-Apr-2023★★☆☆☆Short as hell and didn't have too many puzzles. Better surprise spooks but repetitive in how you got the objects needed to solve it all. Feels mean to give it a 2 since it worked very well, but it is what it is.
10Cube Escape: SeasonsPC<1h6-Apr-2023★★☆☆☆Coming almost directly from the top notch Paradox didn't do this game any favours for sure. It's ugly, the sound is bad and it has way too many bad jumpscares. It's super interesting to see how much they have improved since.
9Samsara RoomPC1h3-Apr-2023★★★☆☆This is a remake of the predecessor to the Rusty Lake and Cube Escape series, and it works pretty well. I enjoyed most of it but it didn't do anything special. One puzzle confused me and the controls were a little finicky.
8Cube Escape: ParadoxPC3h1-Apr-2023★★★★★
First playthrough was a somewhat mild 4, companion short film bumped it up to a clear 4 and the replay to find all the hidden stuff bumped it up to a 4½ which I will simply round up to 5 stars. Pairing a game and movie like this was such a good idea. Definitely my type of game with clever puzzles and fun secrets hunting.
7KoudelkaPS112hY31-Mar-2023★★★☆☆One of those games I adore for the weird and interesting ideas but where the technical aspects and some of the execution of these ideas hold it back a lot.
6Chained EchoesPC42h23-Mar-2023★★☆☆☆I really liked the combat but very little else.
5BloodbornePS420h5-Mar-2023★★★☆☆Wanted to replay this since so many others around me are playing it and praising it, felt I might not have given it a real chance the first time I played. But no, I feel the exact same way now. It's fine I guess.
4PentimentPC14h23-Jan-2023★★★☆☆Greatly enjoyed the last part of the game after being mostly frustrated with the first two thirds. Cool concept and it was clear it was a real passion project. A little sad I didn't click with it more.
3Nobody Saves the WorldPC20h14-Jan-2023★★★★☆Lots of small things could have been done better, and definitely the menu system in co-op. But it was overall a true joy to play this with my partner, doing funny voices and coming up with good combinations of skills.
2Eiyuden Chronicle: RisingPC16h5-Jan-2023★★★☆☆Fetch Quest: The Game, but it actually does it quite well. Very easy but a nice game to play on the side.
1The Quiet ManPC8h1-Jan-2023★★★☆☆This game is a 2h30m long movie where you don't get any sound or subtitles the first time you watch it, with some basic and sometimes janky button mash combat thrown in at infrequent times. It was fun!
104My Little Prince - A Jigsaw Puzzle TalePC25h31-Dec-2022★★★☆☆I thought the pics were pretty boring. They still had "clever" parts where something can trick you into thinking a piece fits elsewhere, but it felt like they had a lot more "dead space".
103Cyberpunk 2077PC80h31-Dec-2022★★★☆☆It feels like CDPR failed at a lot of the stuff they wanted to do, but managed to make a fine "Bethesda-like" mindless open world game. Story and UI sucks but the side missions and a whole bunch of gigs were really fun.
102Buddy and Lucky SolitairePC4h17-Dec-2022★★★☆☆Classic Klondike with both draw 1 and draw 3. No limit on passes (thankfully!). Cute pics of Buddy and Lucky from the Jigsaw Puzzle Tales, and you can look up from the game at different locations to click "collectables".
Magic Lessons in Wand Valley - A Jigsaw Puzzle Tale
PC25h15-Dec-2022★★★★☆Same as the other Jigsaw Puzzle Tales.
100A Castle Full of CatsPC1h8-Dec-2022★★★★☆This one is a big step up from the previous one! The cats are way more varied and the hidden ones are not as random. Had some extra objectives and felt much more meaty.
99A Building Full of CatsPC1h8-Dec-2022★★★☆☆Cute and to the point, find cats in the different pretty apartments. But I was a little surprised and disappointed by the lack of different cats. Most were simply the same tiny head peaking up behind something.
98SudocatsPC2h8-Dec-2022★★★☆☆Sudoku but with cats instead of numbers. You can switch to numbers but then it simply becomes a very easy sudoku without anything special at all, which felt pointless.
97ZodiacatsPC1h7-Dec-2022★★★☆☆It is a very simple puzzle game with nice pics of zodiac themed cats and some astrology nonsense. Cute enough but nothing I would really recommend.
96Disco ElysiumPC20h4-Dec-2022★★★★☆Had to fight a bit with the controls which took away from the experience. Still a great game and I look forward to more runs when I have time.
95NorcoPC5h3-Dec-2022★★★★★Had no idea what to expect and I think that was the best way to approach this game. It fascinated me from start to finish and I have been thinking about it a lot since I beat it.
94Pokémon Legends: ArceusSwitch75h28-Nov-2022★★★★★This is easily my GotY. Everything about this game is a joy.
93Mirror's EdgePC3hY2-Nov-2022★★★★☆Speedy replay since I've finished the game a bunch of times before. When it's good it's very good so I can forgive the couple of bad levels and sections. Combat is bad but thankfully avoidable.
92Glass Masquerade 2: Illusions - ScaryfolksPC2h31-Oct-2022★★★★★The best puzzle game for PC got some more DLC. More of the same and that's exactly what I want.
91The Darkside DetectiveSwitch4h21-Oct-2022★★★★☆A very basic point and click game that is held up solely on its references and humor, and it actually worked well. I constantly had to read things out loud to my partner because I found them so funny.
90Batman: Arkham AsylumPC15h20-Oct-2022★★★★☆Finally finished the challenges of this game and got the true 100%, something I never did when I played it on 360. Also beat the game on hard for the first time, which was fun!
89The Infectious Madness of Doctor DekkerPC8h18-Oct-2022★★★★☆Was in a real FMV mood after Telling Lies and Immortality and this really hit the spot. I was much more invested in this one than the aforementioned two. The acting was superb. The gameplay was sadly a little wonky.
88InmostPC5h10-Oct-2022★★★★★This game really took me by surprise. I went in not really knowing anything about the game, not even the genre. It looks stunning and plays extremely well. Not very spooky but has some dark themes.
87The Coma: RecutPC4hY6-Oct-2022★★★★★Still as good as the first time I played it. The spooky atmosphere is great and the story of is very interesting. It also looks phenomenal.
86Little Nightmares IIPC6h6-Oct-2022★★★★★A pure step-up from the first game which I also loved. Nails pretty much everything it goes for and was a pure 5/5 experience from start to finish.
85ImmortalityPC13h5-Oct-2022★★★☆☆It's a creepy story and delivers on some levels. The execution is sadly not great and both the gameplay and the clips often bored me.
84Telling LiesPC7h3-Oct-2022★★★★☆Extremely bad story lifted up by the good acting and the gameplay feeling investigative enough.
83The Long ReachSwitch3h2-Oct-2022★★★☆☆A bit overly complicated at times and there is a lot of running back and forth through samey locations. Loved the storytelling tho and it did the spooky parts very well!
82Tanuki JusticePC3h25-Sep-2022★☆☆☆☆Single player was a 2/5. Started out fine but almost completely ruined it with the last couple of levels. Co-op was basically broken and lowers the score to a 1.
81Alba: A Wildlife AdventurePC3h23-Sep-2022★★★★☆The devs describe this game as a "chillectathon" and "a feel-good game about running around and doing good deeds" which is spot on.
80HexologicPC3h 30m13-Sep-2022★★★☆☆It's fine, but I found it weird that it never combined the different gimmicks that were introduced in each "chapter".
79ClustertruckPC3h12-Sep-2022★★★★☆This is such a weird game. Hectic and silly, and you never know what the next level or world will throw at you. Sometimes literally
78Ghost of TsushimaPS560h11-Sep-2022★★★★★I'm a sucker for open world games and this is a great one. The story is great, the supporting cast is much better than usual (and thankfully gets some real screen time too) and the world is a joy to explore.
77Sly RaccoonPS35h31-Aug-2022★★★★☆The age is obvious but it has held up better than expected. Fun and charming, with creative worlds and interesting bosses.
Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward - The Far Edge of Fate
PC10h27-Aug-2022★★★★☆Also known as the post-HW patches, 3.1-3.5. Definitely a huge step up. The Dragonsong War parts were great and the build-up to Stormblood was also good.
75Final Fantasy XIV: HeavenswardPC80h27-Jul-2022★★★☆☆Heavensward has much higher highs than ARR, but also some really boring lows. It feels like two expansions mashed together as one, and it doesn't nail either part.
74OmnoPC4h26-Jul-2022★★★☆☆This cute game is pretty janky and it felt very "stiff", but it's fine and some of the puzzles were really good.
73PowerWash SimulatorPC40h19-Jul-2022★★★★☆I thought this would be some short silly thing but it ended up being extremely long and very fun. I can't believe a game like this also managed to have an interesting story!
72Elden Ring - Seamless Co-op RandomizerPC65hY14-Jul-2022★★★★☆The playthrough was pure chaos and very fun, but the game still has some issues these mods cannot fix (yet?). Best way to play the game tho, by far, and I look forward to the next run.
71Say No! MorePC2h3-Jul-2022★★★☆☆It's pretty ugly, it's extremely simple and somewhat funny. Doesn't really hold up all the way through despite the short length but I don't regret playing it.
70Last StopPC6h29-Jun-2022★★★☆☆Better than Virginia but not by much. It starts out really strong and it's interesting to hop into the lives of the characters. Sadly it can't keep it up and fizzles out, with the last chapter being really boring.
69VirginiaPC2h28-Jun-2022★★★☆☆The idea is good but it doesn't really work for me with the quick cuts everywhere. They feel too random. The story is all over the place too.
68PupperazziPC5h27-Jun-2022★★★★☆Silly fun. Scratched that collectible itch to try to find dogs that fit the "Puppypedia" descriptions and get that whole thing filled. Varied little missions too.
67UnpackingPC3h26-Jun-2022★★★★☆Cozy and relaxing little game. Interesting way to tell a story.
66Bioshock InfinitePC11hY26-Jun-2022★★★★☆Extremely fun gameplay brought down by a terrible story. Too bad because some of the weapons and vigors in this game are superb and it's a blast whenever I get to use them
65Mafia: Definitive EditionPC25h16-Jun-2022★★★★☆After beating the campaign I gave this game a 3/5, but after goofing around in Free ride, collecting things all over the very well crafted map, doing wacky side quest and finding fun easter eggs, it is easily elevated to a 4.
64BioshockPC10hY14-Jun-2022★★★★☆This is the first time I don't give Bioshock my highest score. It is also the first time I don't play it on the highest difficulty. It's too easy and the gameplay is too simple. I basically never felt the need to use plasmids.
Lucky and a Life Worth Living - A Jigsaw Puzzle Tale
PC25h9-Jun-2022★★★★☆This is the exact same as How Buddy's Parents Met but with different pics. It's really nice.
62Subnautica: Below ZeroPC17h3-Jun-2022★★★☆☆This is basically "Subnautica but at another location" and everything I think about that game applies to this one too. I only like them with several mods, but with those they are enjoyable enough.
61Death StrandingPC158h21-May-2022★★★★★Great story with interesting characters and gameplay that really suits me. What an experience.
60Hollow KnightPC13hY20-May-2022★★★★★Permadeath sounds scary but Steel Soul mode ended up being easier than expected. Great game in every way.
59Return of the Obra DinnPC3h 30mY10-May-2022★★★★★It's not the same when you already know what happens and remember some names and such, but it works well enough even on a replay!
58Titanfall 2PC6h2-May-2022★★★★☆Great characters, fantastic audio, superb pacing. Would have loved a few more platforming sections and a little less shooty bang bang. Great game but it's sort of a "one and done" kind of deal for me.
57How Buddy’s Parents Met - A Jigsaw Puzzle TalePC25h13-Apr-2022★★★★☆I got this in a super cheap bundle of jigsaw games from the same developer and I didn't expect much from it. Suprisingly, aside from the fact it only has six different pictures it does everything right.
56Dogs Organized NeatlyPC2h7-Apr-2022★★★★★Just like the sister game Cats Organized Neatly, this does everything right. It's the perfect length, cute and simple in a good way. It is tricky the exact the way I enjoy. Not too easy, not frustratingly hard.
55The Friends of Ringo IshikawaPC10h31-Mar-2022★★★★☆Quirky game for sure. Many games a called "unique" but this one really stands out as very different. Definitely one of a kind, and very unapproachable. I'm happy I managed to vibe with it!
54Elden RingPC101h14-Mar-2022★★★☆☆A bunch of good stuff, a bunch of bad stuff. It's kind of Dark Souls 4 but too long and too unbalanced. Played it before patches. They've changed a few things that should make it better, but unsure if I wanna play more.
53The MediumPC7h10-Feb-2022★★★★☆What a positive surprise! It has a very thrilling atmosphere that it manages to carry all the way through. I was engaged in the story and characters, especially the parts that were not completely spelled out for you.
52Dark Souls: Daughters of Ash RemasteredPC42h30-Jan-2022★★★★☆Daughters of Ash is an overhaul mod for Dark Souls 1. It completely shuffles the progression which made the game feel very different since I know the "optimal paths" of the original by heart. Hard but fun.
51Parasite EvePS19h29-Jan-2022★★★☆☆Had this not been played on an emulator I would have said it was unplayable and dropped it so fast. Good ideas but it just has so many issues!
50Animal Crossing: Happy Home ParadiseSwitch40h28-Jan-2022★★★★★This game is both a great sequel to HHD and a wonderful companion game for New Horizons.
49Modern Tales: Age of InventionPC2h 30m28-Jan-2022★★★★☆This story is so bad it's good. The game looks nice and the theme is fun but it sadly doesn't have enough puzzles/minigames.
48Path of Sin: GreedPC2h 30m27-Jan-2022★★★★★This game is one of extremely few in the genre that has "logical" HO scenes. This makes them quite a bit easier but it's also very nice to see it once in a while. Good length, mostly good puzzles, tropey but fun story.
47Scarlett Mysteries: Cursed ChildPC2h 30m27-Jan-2022★★★★★Cool theme, doesn't overstay its welcome, great pace and lots of puzzles.
46Mind Snares: Alice's JourneyPC3h27-Jan-2022★★★★★Older = better? Sometimes it seems like that. No dumb morphing objects or collectibles, great pace, good story (!) and a huge amount of puzzles/HO scenes. It's great!
45Eventide 3: Legacy of LegendsPC3h26-Jan-2022★★★☆☆I don't remember the earlier games from the Eventide series at all but this had good reviews and looked promising. But no, it has a lot of small issues and overall does nothing special. And an awful map!
