As you would expect, Everything Video Games is run by gamers. So every month we will give our impressions of the games we are playing along with a quick look at the ones we expect to start playing very soon.
Let us know in the comments what games you’re obsessing over and which games you’re about to beat.
What we’re playing
Resident Evil 7: Such a waste to have delayed this gameplay for so long. But, alas, it has been worth the wait. We are just making it through the Old House and are excited to see how this story resolves itself – and leads into Resident Evil 8 (see below)!
MLB ’21: This one is such a grind. The highly anticipated baseball video game leader has not disappointed. This year, we are doing more of the Diamond Dynasty aspects while also trying to push through a franchise, as well. Good fun.
Red Dead Redemption II: Another “Why did I wait so long!?!?!!” game! Once our gaming calms down, it’ll be time to return to Arthur’s story, which sits just at the end of Chapter 5. It’s been a hell of a ride so far.
What we can’t wait to play
Resident Evil 8: The sequel to the above-named game, of course. I can’t wait to see what Lady Dimitrescu and that crazy family has in store for me. The 7th installment really rekindled my love for this series.
Returnal: The space-themed thriller looks like it should be a good time. I jumped in and played like a half hour on its release date and I’m OK with what some people are complaining about. That is, that you are constantly pushed back to the start after you die. What better incentive to not die?
Mass Effect Legendary Edition: This one I’m really excited for and one of the major reasons is that I have never played a Mass Effect game. Like, ever ever. So to be introduced to this series in a remaster is almost an accidental benefit of never having jumped on this one.
