Spider-Man 2.

As an utter comic book nerd it’s just wonderful.

Never been a big Spider-Man fan but I enjoyed Miles Morales, so much so I got the platinum for it.
But I’m not willing to spend $70 on this one. It looks great but I’m not that hyped for it.

In any case it will likely be up there with Hogwart’s Legacy as the biggest seller of 2023.

God of War Ragnarok is the next game up for me. About 6 hours in and it has slowly absorbed back into my system. Looks and plays like you’d expect. The cutscenes and voice acting are world class.
Can see why for some they preferred it to Elden Ring.

Looking for something new to play but really can't decide.

I'm coming off the back of the Mass Effect trilogy, which was fantastic. I'm glad I played them back to back, which felt more immersive.

I was tempted by Baldurs Gate 3, but have no experience of turn based combat and struggle to get into or remember fantasy lore. I'm crap at remembering names, places, histories and how they all interact. But I do like that it doesn't seem like a 'grindy' game.

Cyberpunk is probably top of my list, especially since the update. It's either that or another playthrough of Kingdom Come Deliverance.

I have an inkling that Baldur’s Gate 3 won’t be my thing but I’m just fascinated by it’s word of mouth. It’s the highest rated game in 2023, and it’s loyal fans are completely gripped. I’m kind of jealous in that sense.
I just don’t want to spend $60 to find out.
Cyberpunk 2077 and Tears of the Kingdom will be my focus once I’m done with GoWR.

I'm planning on getting BG3 after Xmas but at the moment Cyberpunk is keeping my attention enough that I may be tempted to do another playthrough as a different 'class' when I finish it.

Been playing Diablo IV season 2.. it is a vast improvement on season 1 - not quite there yet and there are a few annoyances but you level much faster, the seasonal vampire powers make you very overpowered (which you should be in a arpg.)

Propagation. Paradise Hotel on PSVR2.

I do enjoy a horror jump scare/shot'em up. Very atmospheric.

Five years later, I'm giving it a second go having been less than overwhelmed upon release. Back to Red Dead Redemption II.

Final Fantasy 8, I have been through this game 4 times at least and have never finished it. Because the remake was £8 on the Xbox store I decided to buy it and get it done!

About 4 hours to finish - great fun with some inventive puzzles. Gameplay generally fairly simple. Lovely 70s aesthetic.

Robocop. Runs like a dog on my 4GB RTX 3050, but I'm a sucker for anything Robocop-related.

Limbo is such a good one to play on your phone whilst having a ****.

I've just started AC Syndicate. Free on Ubisoft.

Only 2 hours in or so and took over the first area. I love the old London world, doesn't seem much less polished than Origins, which is a lot newer.

After that, I'll probably pick up Doom (2016) for about 2 quid and give that a go.

Doom 2016 is still the best FPS I’ve played in ages. Fast, frantic, brutal, it’s near perfect.
