Completed Games of 2021



  • Well folks, it's officially 2021 so here is your annual Completed Games Thread. For those unaware, this is a thread where you keep track of every game you play throughout the year. Here are a few small rules and suggestions:

    • Make sure you update the same post for the entire year instead of making a new one every time you complete a game. It's much harder to make a full list if it's fragmented, and it's harder for me to tally everything.

    • You don't have to, but for your benefit I recommend you label each month and keep a tally of your total.

    • A little bit of discussion on the lists is fine, but try not to discuss the games themselves as it clutters the thread.

    • You can start working on this list whenever you want. We're always accepting new lists.

    • I'll be updating this thread every month with a tally of where everyone is at. With that said, this is not a competition.

    I will get the results for last year's thread either today or tomorrow. I was gonna wait to post this one until I had done so, but I didn't want to make you wait any longer than you already had. Just keep an eye out for the 2020 thread.

    I think that's all I got as far as housekeeping goes. Enjoy!

    I am going to use a new evaluating system from now on to finalize where a game sits in my chart. Here is what it means:

    Bad
    Average
    Good
    Great
    Awesome

    Difference between Great and Awesome is that Awesome also means Great but these games have a special place in my heart too.

  • January - 11 + 1 replay + 1 DLC
    Marvel's Avengers (PC) - As a single player experience it's a fun game with great production values. Yes, it’s short and a bit repetitive, but there's no grind.
    Marvel's Avengers: Taking Aim DLC (PC) - More of the same.
    13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim (PS5) - I can't remember so many complex names, so all characters blend together. Overall plot is fascinating, but it’s just a fraction of the puzzle. Fascinating mess.
    Tetris Effect: Connected (PC VR) - Nice.
    Cyberpunk 2077 (PC, replay) - Still amazing.
    Haven (PC) - Very relaxing and endearing. Have some sound stuttering, but it's not a deal breaker.
    Immortals Fenyx Rising (PC) - Before upgrades traversal is frustrating. After upgrades puzzles are trivial.
    Hades (PC) - Great art style, but lack of checkpoints wastes too much time.
    The Pedestrian (PC) - A bit short and a bit easy, but wonderful.
    Paradise Killer (PC) - Feels like early prototype of a game.
    Desperados III (PC) - Good.
    Maneater (PS5) - Controls could be better.
    Bugsnax (PS5) - Couldn’t care less.

    February - 7 + 1 DLC
    PHOGS! (Xbox Series X) - Not fun in a bad way.
    XCOM: Chimera Squad (PC) - Decent.
    Injustice 2 (Xbox Series X) - Fun story, great production values.
    Gears 5 Hivebusters DLC (Xbox Series X) - Decent, but glitchy.
    The Medium (PC) - I liked it. Wonder what causes periodic framerate drops to 4 fps.
    Donut County (PC) - Entertaining.
    Manifold Garden (PC) - Good.
    What the Golf? (PC) - Insanely creative.

    March - 2 + 1 DLC
    Blind Drive (PC) - Cool idea.
    Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales (PS5) - Good production values, but mediocre gameplay. Not enough content for such price.
    Marvel's Avengers: Future Imperfect DLC (PC) - More of the same.

    April - 3
    Outriders (Xbox Series X) - Ending's revelations are a bit too long, but it's a good game.
    Maquette (PS5) - Needs more development & playtesting.
    Command & Conquer Remastered Collection (PC) - Doesn't hold up.

    May - 6 + 2 replays + 1 DLC
    Cyberpunk 2077 (PC, replay) - This time I also found all hidden gems. It was worth it.
    Titanfall 2 (PC, replay) - Gets in tit own way.
    Destroy All Humans! (PC) - Almost decent.
    3 out of 10: Season Two (PC) - I've enjoyed it.
    AI: The Somnium Files (PC) - Creators need to visit sexologist - they clearly have problems. The game has something, but it's far from Zero Escape greatness.
    Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Wrath of the Druids DLC (PC) - More of the same. Good.
    Final Fantasy 7 Remake (PS5) - I don't get all praises. Low-res locations look the same, combat is too easy on easy and too long on normal, sound mixing is terrible (music has to be half-muted to hear dialogs), story and characters feel average.
    Fate of Kai (PC) - Nice, but too short.
    Portal Reloaded (PC) - Very good for fan mod.

    June - 3
    The Last Campfire (PC) - Good.
    Hitman 3 (PC) - Surprisingly good story. Fun game.
    Mass Effect (Legendary Edition) (PC) - Great lore, dated game.

    July - 3
    Mass Effect 2 (Legendary Edition) (PC) - Doesn't hold up - removing Mako made all gameplay similar, characters doesn't talk and react during missions, story is the lest consequential, planet scan sucks, no weapon stats and imported codex is marked as unread.
    Mass Effect 3 (Legendary Edition) (PC) - Such huge leap forward over 2. Every side quest feels important (except gathering quests on citadel - there are too many of them), story is at its best and characters have a lot to say to you and to each other. Unfortunately, only extended finale here, which completely ruins perfect magic of the original.
    Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince (PC) - Decent.

    August - 4 + 2 DLC
    Assassin's Creed Valhalla: The Siege of Paris DLC (PC) - Good.
    Last Stop (PC) - Interesting.
    Marvel’s Avengers: War For Wakanda DLC (PC) - More of the same.
    Twelve Minutes (PC) - Hard to find what else you need to do.
    Omno (PC) - Relaxing experience.
    Psychonauts (PC) - Creative, but strangely forgettable. Controls aren't great.

    September - 3
    Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart (PS5) - Overhyped. Looks good and load fast, but nothing groundbreaking. Gameplay is decent, but not that memorable. Story is whatever. Even with renting it costs way more than it worth. Unless PlayStation Game Pass arrives soon, I'll lose all interest in Sony's products.
    Psychonauts 2 (PC) - Even more creative than 1, but also didn't grab me.
    Don't Touch this Button! (PC) - Simple, but nice.

    Overall - 42 + 3 replays + 6 DLC

  • @jdincinerator My answer will be complicated, so bear with me.

    I can get different things from playing a game. If it’s good, I’m having a great time. If game has problems, I began to appreciate good games more (instead of taking them for granted). If game is so bad, that playing it is a waste of time, I can at least use that experience to adjust my time management. Bugsnax is neither of those – it’s a game I got nothing from. I have no emotions about it, I have no thoughts about it, I can’t even say that playing this game was a mistake. I simply don’t care.

    If that answers you question, great. If not, then I’m sorry, I can’t elaborate, because I don’t have any “information” about this game to form more informative opinion.
