This was the year I played all the Gears games (except Tactics), and thoroughly enjoyed them.
The ones with a ♥ are highly recommended.
Again, an enjoyable game. Quite different from the classics but good in its own way.
Gears 2, Gears 3
Finished the remaining legacy Gears games during the 2020 year-end holidays. An excellent series from start to finish.
♥Gears of War
Mindless fun. Thoroughly enjoyed playing this and now I intend to play through the rest of the series. Phenomenal weapons (the Hammer of Dawn, the Lancer), memorable boss fights.
I have a soft spot for this series so I liked it. I loved the post-apocalyptic world-design.
♥Assassin's Creed Odyssey
I've loved greek mythology all my life so this was an amazing experience. Very nice variety in play styles (ranger/warrior/assassin), and constant loots and upgrades made for a addictive gameplay loop. Side quest plots are pretty average.
Kids loved it. Nice single player campaign, but a bit short.
Watch Dogs 2
It took me several attempts to get into this game. The open world is beautiful, and so is the satirical take on Silicon Valley. The part I struggled with was the annoying stealth gameplay. I truly started enjoying it only after switching my play style to a more aggressive mode.
An enjoyable game. I loved their stealth implementation (over other games like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided). There were some truly thrilling moments during the game.
