I'll kick it off.

Secret of Mana, Lethal Enforcers (SNES)

The Witcher 3 (Xbox One)

Tiger Woods Golf 2014, God of War Ascension (PS3)

World Tour Tennis (PS4)

The whole Fatal Fury series on Neo Geo. That's four from the main series plus three follow-on "Real Bout" games.

Hollow Knight (PS4) is my main game right now. 50+ hours into the game.

Also:
-Lonely Mountains: Downhill (PS4) {a great retro-y mountain biking game}

-Asura’s Wrath (PS3)

-Doom, the original, but on PS4. Just bought it and played for awhile- because it’s available for $3 on PS4. It’s been about 25 years since I played that far into the game. Looks great on PS4 too.

Hoping to hit my retro backlog too.. for some reason Actraiser (SNES) is the game that I’m itching to try lately.. I’ve never played it.

.
VGC-

are you still having that small group over each week to try out games? Or are multiplayer games on a hiatus for awhile? Still hoping to see the North & South review, but trying the multiplayer is kind of a necessity on that one.

Also, very surprised to see you’re tackling Witch 3, considering how long of a game it is. But very interested in the review. Game Informer recently ranked it was the #5 best RPG of all-time. That piqued my interest and I bought the game, but haven’t gotten around to it yet.

P.S. Secret of Mana was on that list too, at #16.

A lot of Star Wars: Episode I Racer, the PC version. Longtime favorite; single-handedly justifies the prequels' existence for me. Racing games are the best to unwind with.

I just finished Bust-A-Move Bash on the Wii. 250 levels of bubbles shooting, the core gameplay is okay, but the game is actually pretty boring and sometimes even tedious, without any bells of whistles.

Working from home has just translated to me working more hours each day. Up from an average of 10 hours a day to about 12...sometimes 13. I hate working from home but I am thankful to still be gainfully employed. However, I have been able to sneak in a little bit of gaming in the mornings before I start my day.

I have been playing on the PS4 Star Wars Fallen Order. The game is ok, not necessarily grabbing me like I thought it would. Like the critic I switched to "story mode" but now the game is too easy and the combat is rather boring. I switched the difficulty because I could never figure out the parry system...which I think is broken. Anyway, ok game, probably a C+ for me at this point.

I bought Control as PSN is having a March Madness sale...it is supposed to be good...has anybody played it?

Hope everybody is staying safe. Hang in there!

I'm excited to see the critic's review of Witcher 3! I'm playing it as well along with Animal Crossing.

Working from home is keeping me quite busy though, so not as much gaming time as you would think.
