At the start of the year, I was going to put together a pile of shame and attempt to work through it over the year. However, I decided against it because I knew the most likely scenario was once it hit April(ish) I would only get through a handful of the games between this year’s new releases and the rest of my Explosion Network duties.
I have a new game-plan that will be less demeaning – because I can’t fail it! I’m simply going to keep track of any pre-2020 games I finish throughout the year and tick them off the old’ pile of shame without working through a pre-determined list of games. Smart isn’t it? Because now I can just play what I want and feel good about getting through whatever I can.
So let’s kick it off. Throwing the first game into the pile that I cleared this year: Rise of the Tomb Raider.
Ex-Pile of Shame #1: Rise of the Tomb Raider
What I Played: The campaign, some optional tombs & a small amount of dawdling to collect items.
Playtime: Nine and a half hours
