In the week since our last episode, I’ve put all of thirty whole minutes into Destiny 2. It’s been a long time since that game hasn’t consumed my week and while I was looking at the down time giving me a chance to explore some other games on my backlog, all I’ve actually done is avoid gaming altogether.
That’s not a bad thing when going on the tear that I did with D2. It’s been relaxing and, oddly enough, not as stressful in the chase for getting to that stopping point. However, now that I’ve had that break and caught up on some of my shows, I’m looking to jump back in and I’d like to start with God Of War.
It isn’t my most recent memory of a game I was playing outside of D2, but it is the one holding my biggest interest and curiosity right now. Assassin’s Creed is there as well, but it’s rather large with a TON of things to do in it. Spider-Man is complete, but I’m working on the DLC – currently stopped at a very annoying side quest. The game being complete is likely why the drive isn’t there. Horizon Zero Dawn runs a close second to God Of War, but it also contains a lot of side quests and my stopping point there wasn’t the best of auto saves. Same goes for Red Dead 2.
God Of War tempts me with a pretty direct line of gameplay. It lacks the distractions of side quests, has absolutely no DLC to speak of, and still gives me the drive to complete it.
The thing is, I’m kind of looking for something exactly like that given what I’ve been doing the past year now.
