X-Com is a series that seems to have a core goal of destroying mankind's understanding of probability! :lol:

Unfortunately I had to ditch The Bradwell Conspiracy on PS4, purely for game performance issues. It's an interesting and witty portal-like first person puzzle game set in a lab under Stonehenge and the first game I can recall to mention Amesbury and the A303, however even though the environments aren't that detailed, the frame rate tanks anywhere other than a small corridor, making it a bit unpleasant to play. It was cheap in the sale so I'll keep an eye out for it on pc for the next sale and maybe give it another go.

VATS in Fallout had the same bullshit.

I gave up on Watchdogs Legion, I will be giving it a go again in the future when I have finished a couple of other games but I couldn’t get into it, nothing about it hooked me into it or made me want to keep playing plus the voice acting and language seriously grates on me

I have to agree with you, Legion just lacks a lot of the fun the previous two titles had. Also didn't help the game was way too glitchy and playing as a NPC wasn't worth the hype, I'd much prefer playing as a single protaganist

Can't remember the last game, but I'm pretty sure my next game to give up on will be Crash 4 just in terms of N.Sanely perfect runs. I've got around 8 so far just as I've been going around collecting flashback tapes, but some levels seem pretty ridiculous to try achieve it on. Will see how I feel once I've done everything else

I got more annoyed with the 'randomly' created soldiers nearly always having that strawberry floating Guile hairstyle.

Metal Wolf Chaos XD - PS4

I wanted to like this given its legendary reputation however it definitely falls into the category of "janky/grindy difficult 2000s Japanese game", and I just ran out of patience for it. Thats everything I bought in the January sale abandoned now, I think that should tell me something.

Might have to find up on beating Resident Evil 3 on nightmare difficulty. The final boss is an infuriating piece of trash. Even using all the healing coins, you just get trapped in a damage combo that kills you in one and the precision for dodging is just insane.

I am playing it as well and tend too agree the voice acting on the characters is awful and cliched. "we will see whats what" the way the person delivers that line :fp: . Also the use of ghetto roadman slang is seriously annoying "blud" "fam etc and the characters who sound like Thomas from The Apprentice such a stereotypical game in that regard

I just couldn't be arsed with this in the end. I don't have the patience for the trial-and-error gameplay anymore. Got about halfway through it I think, but it just wasn't that enjoyable. More checkpoints and such would've made it a lot more bearable.

Snake Pass
I liked the idea of this, and wanted to like the game, but the controls are too frustrating for me. Puzzle platformers are great, but I want the puzzle and challenge to be in the environment or the levels, not in how to control my character. Just isn't for me. I got it free ages ago on Steam, so not too bothered about this.

Qube Directors Cut. Got annoyed by this, hated the puzzles with the arrows. Also for some reason, it doesn't have subs, which is criminal.

I think I'm done with GTA V. I started playing it for the play along and I tried to carry on with it. In only a few missions in but I just don't give a strawberry float about it in general, and the game world seems so vast I'll have to sink too much time to get to bits I like.

I might also have to admit defeat with The Talos Principle: Road to Gehenna. I've done all the mainline puzzles but I'm just running around the world now looking at stars with absolutely no idea how to get them! I only got a few of the stars in the original game but these are so much harder...

I gave up on GTAV after 3 hours. I hated it.
