RE: Last game you finished
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City The Definitive Edition (PS4)
This version is pretty ugly. I think it's the worst of the 3 remasters. I do like the quality of life improvements and no loading when travelling between Islands is really nice here because you need to go back and forward a lot between the islands in Vice City.
Vice City is still an incredible game. I think it has the best selection of main missions of any GTA game. The characters are all very memorable. The soundtrack and atmosphere are also amazing. I like how non-linear the storyline is.
The only thing I don't like is the city. The layout is kinda bad and the downtown area feels very rushed and looks awful.
RE: Your favorite non-2021 games of 2021.
Those games just focused on shooting itself but not the little nuances such as: sniping in tight corridors, bosses in a small space, making space to get the shot while platforming.
I hope that they rumored remake understands what makes RE4 so good but I highly doubt it.
Your favorite non-2021 games of 2021.
Happy new years everybody!
What are some of your favorite non-2021 games you discovered or rediscovered in 2021.
You don't need to make a top 10. Do this in whatever format you like.
These are my top 10 older games I played and finished for the first time in 2021:
- Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee (2001) (Played on Switch)
Everyone always says this is the black sheep of the franchise but I actually really liked. I like the gameplay more than the 2D games. Though in terms of atmosphere and art design it is quite bland compared to the previous games.
- Shining Force CD (1995) (Played on Mega CD)
While not quite as good as the Mega Drive Shining Force games, it is still a great game. For me the Shining Force games are some of the most enjoyable games in the genre.
- ActRaiser 2 (1993) (Played on SNES)
I never had any real interest on ever playing this game because it lacks the sim elements from the original. I'm glad I did finally play it this year because it's an excellent side scrolling action game.
- The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures (2004) (Played on GC)
This is a really great puzzle game. It has that classic Nintendo level design where every level introduces a new gimmick that makes all the levels feel very different from eachother.
- Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 (2020) (Played on Switch)
This is a love letter to Castlevania III. It has excellent level design is is hard as balls but satisfying to complete.
- Nier (2010) (Played on PS4)
It's hard to shortly explain what makes Nier so amazing but it's a game that will leave a lasting impression on you and after finishing it I couldn't play any other video for a week or so because Nier had to "sink in".
- Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne (2004) (Played on Switch)
I really like the Persona games and it was finally time for me to play a mainline SMT game and I was not disappointed. Great dungeon design, amazing soundtrack, great roster of demons and a great story.
- System Shock 2 (1999) (Played on PC)
People hype up this game a lot and it lived up to it's hype. It's a well aging classic.
- Fallout 2 (1998) (Played on PC)
Another PC classic. I think the beginning and the end is somewhat weak but the middle portion is incredible. CRPGs don't get much better than this.
- Final Fantasy VII Remake (2020) (Played on PS5)
This game came as a complete surprise to me. I'm not a big Final Fantasy VII fan, I Don't even like Final Fantasy THAT much but I loved pretty much everything about FFVIII Remake. The combat, the bosses, the story, the characters, the graphics, the music,...
I can't wait what is next for Final Fantasy VII and the franchise as a whole.
