Well, only 4 games on your PC, true...but they're top-quality :D Haven't played DK in years as well, what an incredible game that was.

Been tying up some loose ends these past few weeks, which means that now I've finally finished all Tomb Raider games (excluding the newest Shadow Of The Tomb Raider of course).
These were the ones still unfinished:

Angel Of Darkness: The absolutely worst of them all. The controls are absolutely horrible, the level design just plain sucks, the enemy AI is dumb as a rock, the story is just crap. And that new playable character Kurtis Trent is a hopeless failure, and the rather obvious sexual tension they tried to create between him and Lara is just plain ridiculous.

Anniversary: People don't seem to like this one too much, but I found it enjoyable and a nice interpretation of the first TR game. Sure, the controls are a bit odd and the combat auto-aiming is somewhat wonky when you have too many targets at once but that wasn't nearly as bad as in AOD. And yes, the last level is a bit of a torturefest with some really tricky and too tightly timed sequences; there's one particular timed grapple jump sequence that lots of people have troubles with, I finally made it after over 10 years (yeah, I last played this when it came out in 2007 and never made that particular jump no matter what I tried).

Underworld: Got stuck in the Mexico level 10 years ago because of my arachnophobia and some nasty huge spiders (I was completely unable to continue back then). Apparently enough hours in Skyrim (and The WItcher 3 and Kingdoms of Amalur to some extent) have desensitized me a bit so this wasn't so bad after all. A bit too short to my tastes (finished it in about 12 hours) and the story was a bit meh, but at least it brought some closure to what started in Legend (and the Natla part in Anniversary).

 

And then for some nostalgia: A friend of mine got a Super Nintendo a while ago. Now we're replaying all the Donkey Kong Country games , 2 player co-op of course (it's been 20 years since my last time with these games) :)
I'm trying to find a copy of Yoshi's Island (for a reasonable price) to play after the DKC project is over.

And for the record, I deleted Skyrim from my Steam library. Almost 1500 hours was enough. There's a Special Edition coming up but I'm going to pretend that it doesn't exist :lol:

Well, obviously that didn't last long. Of course Skyrim is back in my Steam library. I think I re-enabled it when I found out about Enderal, or then I just wanted SE for free after all :D
Haven't played SE that much, I have a bit of an itching to start modding it, but it seems that not all mods I consider essential have been ported to SE yet. The most positive surprise though is that Wyrmstooth has been ported, I thought I'd never see that one again when the original mod/expansion was deleted from practically the entire internet a few years ago.

Yep -- been a couple of years since my last foray into Skyrim, but with SKSE being finally available for the Special Edition, now might just be the time to reinstall and take a virtual stroll in Solitude again :D

I just finished Yakuza 0 on PC, and it's possibly the best game I've ever played. I love how the main story is a serious crime drama and the sub stories are absolutely ridiculous and over the top hilarious nonsense, like hiring a chicken to be a real estate manager.

Finally I completed God Of War on PS4

I haven't played Spiderman and RDR2 yet, but for me GoW is the GOTY.

The thing I hate the most about TR: Anniversary is the last mission. The timed jumps aren't actually that bad, but the disappearing floor with annoying flying creatures throwing fireballs at you are just a nightmare to deal with because of the aiming mechanics in the game. Otherwise, the puzzles are fun, some obvious and some less obvious opportunities for shortcuts to shave off valuable seconds on your times. Speedrunners abuse the f* out of the bugs in that game, though, I want to get good times with not too much abuse.

Bought Witcher 3 during the Lunar New Year sale on steam, now all I need is bloody free time .. lots of it

Fucking hell. Enderal: Forgotten Stories was released a few days ago. Might be time for a third revisit to this game soon XD

Pretty amazing how good they can make this game look on such an old, broken-ass engine. I may need to check this out !

Uh, I did try Anthem.. for about 2 hours ..of which at Least an hour consisted of loading screens. There was no chat in an online game, that one was really strange to me. Perhaps, they fixed tons of stuff, but I won't support this game. You just don't release an incomplete game, period. Perhaps, in a year.

Oh fuck, Enderal's got an update. I need to make myself a schedule so I can playthrough all the games I want, there are too many :o

Bloodborne without hesitation.

Already got this one, the art style is just amazing. Hopefully it won't be too hard. (I know, I know: get gud).

Did you also get the DLC?    The final boss is quite tricky.   Ludwig is also quite the challenge early on in the DLC.   

The entire game is a masterpiece.

Dark Souls Remastered and The Witcher 3 also come to mind if you haven't done those on another platform!
