Almanac

Destruction Allstars 2021
PS5

Need to give this 6 months to see if they add anything else. Right now it feels shallow and kind of boring.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine 2013
Season 1-6
Lego Harry Potter 1-4
PS4
Skate 2007
Xbox 360

This is really hard to get the hang of, especially with ~20 years of THPS muscle memory but once I did, I really enjoy just skating around.

Super Size Me 2004
Jojo Rabbit 2019
Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey 1991
Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure 1989
Schindler's List 1993

I’m amazed this is held in as high regard as it is. It’s well shot but the story is just boring and the first two hours are mostly pointless.

Deadpool 2 2018
Immortals: Fenyx Rising 2020
PS5

Despite the similarities between this and Breath of the Wild, I really enjoy this (where I disliked BotW).

I hit some issues that needed a restart a couple of times and it doesn't have the polish of a "real" PS5 game but I had a ton of fun playing this.

The Pianist 2002
The Green Mile 1999
Contagion 2011
Shadow of the Tomb Raider 2018
PS4

Someone finally remembered Tomb Raider is supposed to be about tombs.

Avatar 2009

Visually impressive (mostly) but what a mess.

Edge of Tomorrow 2014

I enjoyed this but the ending is such a cop out.

The Meg 2018

Somehow this was actually good? Who knew.

Parasite 2019

I liked this but it was about 30 minutes longer than it needed to be.

Death to 2020 2020
Soul 2020
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 2011
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 2010
My Friend Pedro 2019
PS4

This is ridiculously fun, although I’m not a massive fan of Pedro’s levels.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince 2009
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix 2007
The Grand Tour 2016
A Massive Hunt
Die Hard 1988
Elf 2003
The Nightmare Before Christmas 1993

This is so incoherent and the songs are awful.

Miracle on 34th Street 1994
The Muppet Christmas Carol 1992
Unravel Two 2018
PS4

This game is gorgeous.

The Grinch 2018
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire 2005
Untitled Goose Game 2019
PS4

This was fun but very short. Not sure it's worth the full price.

Home Alone 1990
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban 2004
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets 2002
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone 2001
Aladdin 2019
Better Call Saul
Season 4-5
Gavin & Stacey 2007
Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales 2020
New Game Plus | PS5
Bugsnax 2020
PS5

This is a lot of fun and feels like if the Pokémon catching gameplay had actually progressed it the last 20 years. I have some issues with it (no fast travel, a lot of loading screens, mission design seems messy) but overall I enjoyed it.

The story definitely didn't go where I expected it to.

Sackboy: A Big Adventure 2020
PS5

This is a really solid platformer with a lot of variety. The music levels are a particular highlight.

Lost 2004
Season 1-6

I really enjoyed watching this 10 years on from the finale. My only complaint is the last season felt a little bit rushed.

Michael McIntyre: Showman 2020
Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales 2020
PS5

This is a lot shorter than the first game but that works in it's favour: no more sneaking as MJ or doing dumb circuit board puzzles.

Holidate 2020
