Just like everyone else, I’ve started playing Assassin’s Creed... Except, I’m not playing Odyssey. I just started Origins! I know, I’m a Slowpoke.

I’ve always loved the Assassin’s Creed series, but I find that after each major bummer of a game, I always end up giving myself a hiatus to the series. I was first burnt out after finished Assassin’s Creed III (worst game in the series, in my opinion). The next game to burn me out was AC: Unity (from a technical standpoint it was great, but the story and missions were all so bland and boring). So after a long while, I just recently finished up AC: Syndicate and I’ve started up Origins. It’s actually my favourite game of the series now, after they revamped the entire engine.

This last year has seen me play a lot of older games, mostly because I’m tired of shelling out full-price for games now, and partly because my backlog was just getting out of control. Hell, I’m still playing Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 and that’s a 2 year old game (albeit only 1 year on Switch).


So my question is: What’s the latest old game that you’ve just tried for the first time?

Of course, if you don’t want to talk about this, then feel free to talk amongst yourselves!
