I play almost every type of game, apart from FPS, and yet I get a terrible slagging for playing the Lego games. They're mindless fun! Sometimes you want something you can interact with and turn off your brain. My Slay the Spire addiction is all quick maths and after a long day I don't wanna be doing mental arithmetic. Therefore Lego.
Double post, objection! No one posting in this thread? Objection!
I'm playing Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. OBJECTION!
For those no in the know, it's a game of the visual novel genre - that is you make some key decisions now and again but it's really an interactive text based story. It's a lot more exciting than the description I'm giving it. The series is very Japanese (questionably so at times - magic panties anyone? Characters with tits so big you could rest your dinner plate on etc) but at the same time it is very knowing and breaks the 4th wall occasionally. It's like a game that was made to make memes from but yet the original version came out about 2001. I'm glad I found these games anyway. So wacky and fun. Very different from destroying the brain or removing the head to carry on.
Been away from the boards a bit because I'm playing Final Fantasy 7 Remake. I'm about halfway through and it's pretty good overall. I do enjoy the combat and understand why it had to be changed up (FFX is still my favourite combat from the old era we can't return to). The only real criticism I have is the difficultly levels. There seems to be quite a jump between easy and normal.
But yeah, having fun playing this silly camp nonsense. A 23 year wait for something is always gonna bring almost impossible expectations but it's been reviewed pretty well.
I've been playing loads of Animal Crossing. Nintendo nailed the release date on that one. But it really is a great distraction for everything that is going on outside. And it requires zero brain power which is even better.
I also still play Splatoon2 on the side.
For the first time in a while there is no release date that I am really looking forward to in the near future. So I have a feeling I will be replaying a lot of old games.
