Bio
This is a major work in progress. I'm filling out the list chronologically, with games I played earliest first, which is taking a while! My pace has slowed a good bit, but I'll get to present day eventually. The last major benchmark I reached was when I got a Nintendo Switch in 2017.

A huge complicated character building system surrounds what is essentially a Left 4 Dead style coop game only without variety. Each level I saw was pretty generic and I got tired of going through them long before I started getting anything good as far as equipment, talent trees and so forth goes. To get far along in this seems like a lot of work to put into game where each level is kind of the same. While the gameplay seems perfectly good, it just lacks the replay value needed to make that work.

A beautiful cooperative game that is, mostly, pretty dull. It's nice to look at the water and go "goddamn, that water looks great" and if you can get a crew together to sail the seas it's not bad, it's just usually very mindless. Sail places, get ashore, get some treasure, maybe kill a skeleton or some such along the way. I have had no grander pirate adventure in my time with the game, but I've heard tell of those who have. While those tales can be thrilling, my voyages have been okay at best.

Driving around the big open world aimlessly while listening to Girlfriend by Avril Lavigne on repeat is a lot of fun. The driving model feels good and there's lots of shortcuts to discover, fences to drive through and billboards to smash up which is great. However, it's not all great. The races are all from random place to random place and the GPS is not very easy to follow making that whole part of the game a bit crap. Also could use fast travel. Still, it's a lot of fun to mindlessly explore.
