Are there any of those you would recommend (on account of disk space isn’t infinite)? I’ll share my views on the first two:
Alan Wake’s American Nightmare: same old as the base game, meaning a fairly decent story but a somewhat meh, repetitive game once you’ve got the basic gameplay figured out. Looks pretty decent in UHD fwiw.
It’s more the platformer part that I’d probably get bored with at some point.
I’m not sure if there’s any platformer I’ve ever finished. Not even Psychonauts. I finished a few TR games, which did have enjoyable platforming but I’m not sure I’d class them as such. I almost finished VVVVV (if I got the number right) but I couldn’t be bothered to backtrack to the final part of the game to finish it.
OH WAIT, I finished Prince of Persia 2008.
Anyway, we already own the game on GOG or Humble/Steam.
I don’t even think of it as a platformer - that just happens to be how you move around - the puzzles make it less of a run and jump scenario. Having said that, there are bits that involve racing against other things.
Actually I just remembered that I finished several Commander Keen games, and possibly Duke Nukem 2.
Basically platformers other than VVVVV always manage to bore me to death by having me redo a whole bunch of stuff for that one jump I didn’t make. VVVVV was really good about making you redo only the stuff that mattered. The funny thing is that Super Meat Boy and VVVVV came out around the same time. Super Meat Boy proclaimed to solve that problem but didn’t. At all.
Could still get boring. We’ll probably see someday.
Oh, yes- there are jump scares… just no cheap ones. Also it takes usually a few seconds/minutes/hours for that uncomfortable feeling to fade away.
Mmm… screenshot? perhaps I can give a hint.
Yeah, each time you pick one up, you’ll see this score light up for a few seconds… 1/7, 2/7 or something. I got 6/7 and had to use a guide to find the 7th (basically find all 7again as I didn’t remember which one I might have missed.) plus to find the entrance to the secret part. It is pretty well hidden for normal mortal players - only @tasse-tee could be thorough enough to find all that on her own.
Oh, and if you want a thougher challenge than the Sonic speedrun ones… there is an achievement to complete the game with dying less than 10 times or so. Or 15 I don’t remember. Doesn’t matter either ‘cause you’ll die at least 100 or 1000 times before you reach the end.
