I Just Don’t FEEL Like it…

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 KingI’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… šŸ˜¦


Got any games in your backlog you just can’t be bothered with? Think you’ll ever go back to them?

    It took me quite a while to finish FFVIIR, both first time through and then 100% it. I enjoyed it, but at the same time, there was a nagging feeling in the back of my mind that once I finish it 100%, I’m just back to waiting for the follow-up. So I had a lot of similar feelings to yours, that I just didn’t feel like it even though I had fun.

    I still haven’t finished The Witcher 3, which is probably my biggest source of gaming shame. I can empathize with your genre pains though, sometimes there just isn’t anything out there to scratch the current itch. For me it has been survival horror. It’s going to be a long wait for RE8.

      Hope you’re able to find something before then. šŸ™‚

    FFVII Remake is really weird for me. It was all I could think about for years. I played the Demo and I thought it was cool and fine but it didn’t blow my mind. I played it and put maybe 10 hours in and haven’t played since. This coming from someone who played through FF7 5-10 times and started it probably 20+ times. I’ll go back at some point. I have limited gaming time these days and Ghost of Tsushima is what I want to play, it’s just so much fun!

      It’s just not as compelling as it should be for some reason. I want to know what happens and see the differences, but….

  4. I’m kind of in that mode right now. I definitely have a backlog of things I could play but outside of Hades, nothing really appeals to me at the moment. Nothing that makes me super excited to sit down and drop hours into at the moment. Maybe it’s time for a break before the November madness hits. Probably a good time for it…

      Get that rest in before Cyberpunk drops next month. I’ve been playing Hades too btw. Wasn’t a fan of Pyre, so I’m glad to see something a that’s a bit closer to Bastion/Transistor.
