I replayed a bunch of old stuff. Honestly dont think I beat any new games in 2021.
I'm so lame.

Similarly for me, the games I've finished this year are games I had already finished 'x' number of years (or decade+) back.

The most recent one I've finished that I can think of as I type this was the Iceborne expansion for Monster Hunter World. By "finished" in that case I only mean that I upgraded 2 of my favorite weapons to max and got all the gear sets (4 of them) that I cared for, finished the main quest, all Optional quests and... well that's about it. This year for me was overall pretty dry coming from the games that actually came out during it.

I think I do know why though, the main answer for me is: Twitch Streaming.

I actually watched full playthroughs of several games, seen the majority of them up to their respective ending. And it DOES - for me - have the effect of "Well that was fun, had my fill, no need to buy it, thank you".

Games I've watched a full playthrough of were:

- Returnal (genuinely seems fun to play, I enjoyed what I saw anyway)
- Resident Evil Village (a pretty darn good RE game, I enjoyed it more than RE7; and RE7 is another one I watched a playthrough of)
- Metroid Dread (I liked it, but I didn't watch the full 100% streams; I watched maybe 70% of it, saw the ending, that was enough)
- Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy (to be honest, a VERY good game, didn't play it but it's genuinely watchable like a movie would be, I enjoyed it all and actually preferred it over the movies)

And I think that was it... I think. So yeah, didn't finish many myself but I've seen a couple to the end via streaming. To be honest though it's not like I "regret" it. I think that enjoying video games (especially ones that are mostly story-driven) from my favorite Streamers is genuinely just a new method of enjoying this form of media and entertainment. I would have derided myself if I had said that I'd do this sort of thing barely five years ago; but things change sometimes (and mindset, and mood, and just... life and people change). It saves me the money for a start, but also I realized that I have a better 'attention span' by watching a playthrough, over having to "fight" with myself to find enough willpower to resume a game that I'd have started myself. I didn't have that problem with Iceborne though, because I always loved Monster Hunter World from the start (and I did take a break of about 2 years before going back to it with Iceborne and had to re-learn everything), but the older I get the more difficult it is for me to "get into" most new games.

Which is why, ultimately, I resort to just going back to older, much simpler and straightforward video games with a more arcade'ish feel to them. They don't need to be open world all the time, they don't require me to wait for all their DLCs to come out, they aren't rushed out half-baked and broken, they don't cost me another $90 (Canadian, when they're brand new) and they don't ask a full PC upgrade to run during a time when just trying to get a new GPU is an exercise in frustration and futility. For me I think oldschool / retro gaming in the past 2 years or so has been my "main stay", and I just watch the recent releases on Streams instead.

I "finished" Forza Horizon 5 about as much as you can. They have new races every week, but I already finished all of the championship capstone races and made it to the hall of fame.

Good game! I recommend getting a month of PC Game Pass and playing it!

yeah almost every Forza Horizon game is quick cuz the bare minimum is not much. Its all about the optional stuff.
I have been grinding away at every last championship in Forza Horizon 2, which is time consuming.
