Overall, I felt like as soon as I started to grasp the combat system, I had to switch characters, or a new weapon or playstyle was introduced, way faster than I could ever hope to master them.
an interesting thing i heard early on in my playthrough (think maybe Maximilian dood) is that your first playthrough is basically the tutorial to give you all the gear and abilities you need for the harder difficulties (eg you get neros "mode" in literally the final fight.)(not saying its a smart idea)
cause i felt kinda the same especially with dante late game he got so many new weapons, what helped was just focusing to reading the ability menus and basically just sticking to 1 or 2 weapons.
what really put dmc5 as my 2nd for last year was my hard playthrough, where i basically had all the tools and i could just focus on mastering them, i remember spending 2 hours on "V" at the end because i just wanted to beat him without using any revivals and really master him(and this was literally the night before i got sekiro)
also this was the first game of this type when it finally clicked after just mashing my way through bayonetta years ago(which i really wanna replay now)
beat some new games but no backlog picks
Jedi:fallen order 7ish hours
weird? this game ran rather badly on my ps4 pro and all around just felt clunky, maybe because of the gameplay style i was expecting it to feel much more like GOW(2018) and dark souls but ehh it just would not click, i made it to wookee planet and dropped it, from what i've heard i'm around a 3rd or more into it and yeah... also alot of bugs mutiple hitches and god that loot and progression just feels worthless.
added another 5 hours on, just got cid
P5 Royal (7hours)
hoping to beat it before xenoblade remake... don't like my chances. am loving it though
The last of us remake(5 hours)
only played it once and was pretty ian hinck about it so i want to see if i like it more... edit:enjoying it more and it's a good side game among my behemoths
have not liked an ac game since brotherhood, so gonna try jumping back onboard, Going to be my side ape-brain game once i finish TLOU and am stuck in the JRPG heaven (and hell) of P5 though xenoblade remake.(btw am so excited for xenoblade after loving what i played of XC2)
Pathfinder:kingmaker(it's gonna be a while)
20 hours in... hopefully <100 to go
Ori and the will of the wisps(2 hours)
on game pass like it but doom took priority.
been a couple months but might try to mainline it a little more i spent alot of time building roads and then lost interest because the story had slowed down....because i was building roads.
