The monthly Nope List will chronicle the games that I tried out during a given month, but for whatever reason, they just didn’t click for me.
This month’s Nope List is mostly just a selection of games that looked kind of interesting on Origin Access that I just wasn’t that into. Nothing particularly earth-shaking, especially in a month where I was either really into a game, or not really touching my computer much at all.
Unravel – I don’t know what I was expecting, but this wasn’t it. Really pretty, but just felt kind of blah to me. To be fair, I didn’t give it long to draw me in.
Vambrace: Cold Soul – I feel sort of like a broken record, but it just didn’t hold my attention. Unlike Unravel, this was exactly what I was expecting, I just apparently wasn’t in the mood for it.
Ghost of a Tale – The third Origin Access title that I meh-ed out of in less than 30 minutes. I do love the idea of stealth games, but I very rarely love the reality of stealth games, and the cuteness didn’t make up for frustrating game play for me.
Frostpunk – This one I very well may go back to when I can pick it up on sale because I think – with patience – I could get into it. It is brutal though, and even though the genre is in my wheelhouse, I am rarely in the mood for something quite this challenging.
And then – the only game NOT from Origin that didn’t hold my attention.
The Outer Worlds – It actually hurts to put this on the Nope List, because I know if I hit this on the right day, I will probably love it. I just haven’t hit it on the right day yet. It’s weird, because while I’m playing, it’s been enjoyable, but I can’t muster the interest to boot it back up.
