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 - 5 + 6 replay
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.
Halo: Combat Evolved (PC, replay) - Terrible level design, whatever story and combat. I'm surprised this game gave birth to a series.
Halo 2 (PC, replay) - Better, but levels are too long. Story is confusing, combat isn't fun
Halo 3 (PC, replay) - Same as Halo 2.
Halo 3: ODST (PC, replay) - So, making worse Halo game than 1 is possible...
Halo: Reach (PC) - The most interesting Halo game so far, but the bar was low.
Halo 4 (PC, replay) - This one is actually a good game.
Halo 5: Guardians (Xbox Series X, replay) - Back to whatever...
Night Book (PC) - A bit more variations would be nice, but it's worth its price.
October - 6 + 1 incomplete
Persona 5 Strikers (PC) - I expected cheap spin-off. I was wrong, this is a true Persona 5 sequel.
A Juggler's Tale (PC) - Nice visuals and environments, strange storytelling, simplistic gameplay.
NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 (PC) - Mediocre game that somehow feels better than it is.
Back 4 Blood (PC) - Barely fun, instantly forgettable.
Metroid Dread (Switch, incomplete) - Decided to quit after reaching final boss. It's insanely hard - every boss battle comes down to good attack RNG. And everything else is just boring.
Resident Evil 3 (PC) - Fun.
Deathloop (PC) - Weird performance issues, but I've enjoyed this game. Being invaded feels great.
November - 7
Resident Evil Village (PC) - Significant step down from 3: becomes boring way before the end, lackluster story, weapon progression punishes you for upgrading guns. But good sound and gallery.
The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope (PC) - Tense.
Forza Horizon 5 (Xbox Series X) - Solid game.
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy (PC) - GOTY so far.
DARQ: Complete Edition (PC) - Interesting.
Unpacking (PC) - Fine.
Life is Strange: True Colors (PC) - Nice visuals. But too many choices are fake and force you the only path, which makes nearly impossible to connect to the characters.
December - 6 + 5 DLC
Far Cry 6 (PC) - Decent.
Far Cry 6 - Vaas: Insanity DLC (PC) - Too difficult.
Watch Dogs: Legion - Bloodline DLC (PC) - Decent.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey - Those Who Are Treasured DLC (PC) - Such a wonderful gift.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla - A Fated Encounter DLC (PC) - Decent.
Assassin's Creed: Valhalla - Discovery Tour: Viking Age DLC (PC) - Interesting.
Halo Infinite (Xbox Series X) - Not fun.
Lost Judgment (Xbox Series X) - Interesting plot is buried in bad script (poor pacing, too many coincidences, caricature characters). Side quests lack VO and you are forced to do some of this low-production filler.
The Gunk (Xbox Series X) - Not bad.
Little Nightmares II (PC) - Good puzzles and production values, but not impressive overall.
Hourglass (PC) - Clever puzzle game.
Overall - 63 + 9 replays + 11 DLC + 1 incomplete

@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.

@ffff0 I understand, Bugsnax just didn't speak to you in any way. I was just surprised about that because generally Bugsnax is quite well enjoyed by many. I think we all have a game or a few games that we don't care the slightest about and it's completely understandable.

@jdincinerator As someone who loved Octodad and was looking forward to Bugsnax before launch, it also super didn't leave me with positive vibes. I was happy to be done with that game and move on when it was over. The mechanics were interesting at first, but they became repetitive by the end. The story went predictably, exactly where it was hinted to go from all the trailers, so it ended up being kind of boring as result. While I appreciate what they did with the characters, it interrupted the otherwise jolly flow of the game. I get being into it if you feed on drama like Beffica, but through most of the game it just felt like watching friends fighting while being stuck in the room.
I know they teased a sequel at the end, but I kind of hope they do something else instead.
@mbun I enjoyed Bugsnax mainly for its sense of discovery-there's a Pokemon Snap appeal to it that I really liked and uncovering new Bugsnax was a pleasant experience. Yes it's repetitive and the story goes to predictable places but it's a brief pleasure that I don't think outstayed its welcome.
