Tell me if this feels at all familiar: I’ve been sitting here for the past couple of weeks trying to figure out what to play next. I’ve dabbled in games here and there, stuff like Fall Guys and Destiny 2, but I haven’t yet found a game that I really want to play. Meanwhile, I’ve got at least 2 perfectly good,, unfinished games just waiting for me to come back to them. I really should just play them; one of them I actually like. The problem is that I really don’t feel like playing either of them. Not at all.
Right now, I’m really jonesing for another good 3D platformer. I had a lot of fun with A Hat in Time recently, and I need more! The only problem is that there aren’t all that many new 3D platformers out there, so I’m sort of just waiting for Super Mario 3D All-Stars to come out later this month. I could be playing Final Fantasy VII Remake right now; I probably should be. I should also be playing Ghost of Tsushima and Paper Mario: The Origami King. But….none of them are platformers!
One’s a (very good) open world game, and the other is a story-driven RPG. I love RPGs, but I gotta be in the right mood for ’em. The same is true for open-world games, which have a hard time holding my attention even when they’re downright excellent. As for Paper Mario: The Origami King…I’ve already voiced my thoughts on that. I don’t think I’ll be finishing that one anytime soon.
I’ve been trying to get back into these games, but they’re just not holding my attention. It’s odd too because I actually do want to find out what happens in Final Fantasy VII Remake and Ghost of Tsushima. I just can’t sit still long enough to make any headway in them; the drive just isn’t there. Hopefully it’ll return after running through Super Mario Sunshine or Super Mario Galaxy. Until then though, I guess they’ll remain on the shelf. Sorry guys… 😦
Got any games in your backlog you just can’t be bothered with? Think you’ll ever go back to them?
