Is it almost February again? Apparently, it is! That means it’s time to try to beat four more games that are sitting in my backlog. Here are the games I’m going to attempt this year.

Horizon Forbidden West: The Burning Shores

I absolutely loved Horizon Forbidden West when I played it upon release, but despite the Burning Shores DLC coming out almost a year ago, I just haven’t made the time for it. Well, no more! I can’t wait to see where the story goes as Aloy explores the ruins of Los Angeles. I’ve heard the final boss of the DLC is also one of the most epic boss fights ever made.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Another one I just haven’t gotten around to, I’ve only played an hour or two of Miles Morales, despite loving the first Marvel’s Spider-Man game and its DLCs. I definitely want to play Spider-Man 2 as well, but it feels wrong to play that one before playing Miles Morales. I understand this is a relatively short one, being more of a “standalone DLC” like Dishonored: Death of the Outsider or Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, so this one should be pretty manageable.

Sea of Stars

Might as well throw an RPG in here! I’ve heard plenty of good things about Sea of Stars. It seems to be a throwback to the 90’s era of RPGs, but with some modern quality-of-life improvements and gorgeous animation that far exceeds what actually could have been achieved back then.

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands

It’s been a couple of years since I played Borderlands 3. Borderlands is one of those franchises where I play it every couple of years and then get burned out on it, so it’s time to revisit this style of gameplay, but now with a fantasy theme!
