Finally getting round to playing Horizon Zero Dawn properly.

I had played it very briefly but lost interest in it because of how vast and open it is. I really had to be in the mood.

But now that I've got some time to put the hours in I am really enjoying it. There is a lot of freedom to it and a solid main story to take you along.

Will move on to Forbidden West as soon as I finish

I don't do grinding because I couldn't give a fuck about achievements/trophies/etc.

I played that game as much as I wanted to and I enjoyed it while I did.

Sort of tempted by the new F1 game but I reckon I'll have the same issues as I did with the last one I got a couple of years ago.

Just finished Hob on the Switch. Fun little game but could have done with a little more guidance as to what your goals were etc.

Playing Braid on the PC which is interesting. Then Dead Cells to come on the Switch.

Disco Elysium is magnificent.  I actually used to dream about that game whilst playing it.  Might be one of my favourite games of all time.

Juggling some racing games at the moment. ACC, F1 22 and GT7. It's actually not a good idea as it takes a while to adapt back and forth between the different handling nuances.

Caved and bought F1 22. Only had a few laps in a McLaren round Silverstone so far but liking it so far. Not a huge change from last year except for the new cars, which was what sold me really. Graphics do seem a bit better than last year and the cars sound good.

Also really enjoying Forza Horizon 5 again which is a nice contrast to the F1. Have The Artful Escape and Ghost of Tsushima lined up now I have PS Extra.

I need to try Disco Elysium again as I started it and enjoyed it but just ran out of steam fairly early on.

Done with Hades now. Finished nearly everything except the Achilles quest and the Epilogue. After 53 hours I got a bit tired of the same levels etc. Great game though with some fantastic voice acting.

I've sunk 30 hours in, in a very short amount of time. Really got me hooked, more than anything I've played in a while - exactly what I was hoping for.

Still loving it, and have it rented for a couple more weeks yet. Good to know how far youve got in that amount of time, suspect I'll be ready for a break around the same time.

Addictive isn't it mate? Would have stuck with it longer but the Achilles quest takes a while and I was coming across a lot of one line dialogue in the end so it came to a natural end for me.

Agree with you all, Hades is excellent. I gave up though, there was only so many times I could fight Meg without having a tiny breakdown.

AC: Origins... Amazing. Not played since its been remastered though.

I've started on Far Cry 5. Not played the series but as it was on Gamepass I thought I'd give it a shot as the trailers looked good.

Just about to leave Dutchs Island so only really early on in it, but seems quite fun. Looks good too.

Hope you enjoy Far Cry 5 as much as I did. Yes, itís your standard Ubisoft/Far Cry game but I really enjoyed it. Graphics are nice and fluid, weapon sounds and customization is great, huge map with different locations. Have fun, I hope.

Cheers mate. Its a promising start.

It usually takes me a while to get into a game but this has been a good start thanks to some of the characters. The acting is good too which is weird for an Ubisoft game!

Yeah really enjoying it. Only critic, there is far too much going on at the start. As in, you do the first bit on Dutchs Island and all of a sudden side/main missions galore!

I guess it always feels this way when starting a new rpg.

Far Cry 5 is really good, the premise and setting are excellent.

Hard disagree. They advertised it like it was a satire of America alt right almost, but its just some goofy cult. Very one dimensional to me, a drug cult, big fat Oh. And compared to say, 4, I found the environment really flat and lacking. IMO, they dropped the ball

It also seems to dangle choices at you, which amount to nothing. Bad dialogue etc.

I'm burned out on the formula too. Open world I love, but missions you have to complete on a timer. That goes for a lot of games - scripted missions with zero choice in the middle of an open world! But it turned me off Far Cry 5.

Anyone enjoying it, enjoy it though. I've had great fun with that series. If you're not burned out on it, it's probably as powerful as ever.

Hope they actually try to, you know. Evolve the series with the next one.

It probably helps for me that I haven't played it since 2. I can see how it would get boring if every game is very similar.

Same goes. It's the first one for me and I'm enjoying it. Can see how it would get repetitive but so far I'm just enjoying plodding along taking people out with my side kick. Want to get a 2nd gun to hire though.

About 30 hours into Fallout 4. Had it about 5-6 years ago but never bothered saving properly - just used the exit save. I was a bit past where now and the save failed and I thought I am not going through all that again! Learned my lesson this time.
The story missions are brilliant, varied and full of great characters. Having to keep the settlers happy can get a tad annoying but other than that I'm loving this play through. Huge single player story driven but open world games are my thing and this is one of the best imo.

Have had my fill with Hades now, must have had around 100 attempts (although some of them I deliberately threw), but it's been a great game to session and get a bit lost in.

Only v minor criticism is the last trophy I have outstanding (not that I'm a trophy hunter, and this is a good reason why I need to resist the addicting temptation). Have completed almost everything there is to complete, including all the fated prophecies, but there's no chance in hell i can be arsed to max out every single keepsake.

If i'd have known in advance, maybe I could have achieved it by this point but having to do that instead of getting a trophy for finishing all the prophecies is just not fun.

Glad you enjoyed it mate and fair play for completing the Achilles prophecy! Gutted I gave up trying to get that but I couldn't face going all the way to Elysium and only getting 1 sentence off Pat  ;D
