I am not a person that’s good at finishing things. Sometimes it takes me actual years to finish a book or video game. I wanted to do better during the last 15 months, but kept finding myself distracted by existential dread and just trying to exist. Oh, and Animal Crossing and Sims 4. I also mostly play games that just don’t end.
HOWEVER! I had a few games that I was VERY CLOSE to finishing. So last week I took it upon myself to complete both Cat Quest and Pokémon: Sword. I feel very accomplished now. So accomplished that I’m actually working through another game that I haven’t finished yet. Octopath Traveler. It took me a while to get back into the swing of that one. I couldn’t even tell you the last time I played it, probably sometime in 2019… I’m not finding myself fully obsessing over it again. In the best way. I really did forget how enjoyable it was.
Really though, this post was about celebrating the fact that I now have 2 games off my backlog! This may not seem like a huge deal to some of you, but this is BIG for me. I’m very good about jut forgetting what I’m playing and starting on something new. Unless I just completely obsess over it. So, feeling good about June so far.
