Happy 2020 or The year I stopped playing so much COD and got back into games
Happy super belated New Year everyone! 2019 passed by in a flash and I had some great gaming memories, super shout out to my boy RichUK and JAdam for a particular Borderlands session that I loved. I almost made my streak goal but sadly fell short but hey new year and new streak right?
So work caught up with me in a big way towards the tail end of last year, everyone has to spend their budget finally and projects move forward etc. So my gaming time was reduced but also my Achilles heel was released......a new COD. Kinda a personal thing for me is the COD series. While not as beloved as RPG franchises it still remains the one game me and all my middle school and high school friends get together and play, hence why I have so many zombies trophies and back on the 360 had all the COD achievements. So out comes this new COD(which is not my favorite) with a damn battlepass and no prestige system. The no prestige is what caused me to stick with it so much, where as before I could get a prestige earn some new things and come back, this game has a time limit on seasons and challenges to earn badges and calling cards......time limited stuff.....seriously I get FOMO on trophies for games that are about to go down but for a game ALL my friends play? Nope couldn't stop playing. So I got sucked in but soon my friends dropped off and I have LITERALLY done every thing possible in multiplayer....every challenge camo etc. So I will check in every once in awhile but seriously its like coming up for air after holding my breath for so long!
So now I am back trying to get back on the wagon and ween myself off the Mega train that is COD. I started with Goat Simulator this time which is so stupid and fun it has been a welcome relief for my brain. Next up is a game I have bought on every platform, FF9 followed by finishing off some rando trophies I have left from last year. My goal though is to find a copy of that Terminator game that released last year and play it because I have heard surprisingly good things! Has anyone played it? Let me know in the comments and seriously guys thank you for this community and all the friends I have here. Lets jump right into it!
PS: (I took a look at my stats for last year gameplay and jesus COD is a drug to me that I gotta quit)
