here's a pile of reviews that reach back to like January. some are territory I'm gonna be rehashing, I'm just going through this so I can put these ratings in my ratings thing as I remember what I played this year. A large amount of these reviews are negative, so heads up for that if you're not in a place to deal with negative energy.
RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2 
when it asked me to cock the pistol myself was when I began to suspect this game was not for me. I did not play much further than that, because the last time I attempted to make myself play a game that was popular in the zeitgeist that I suspected was not for me, it was God of War, and I was unable to play a singleplayer game without stomach pains for the rest of the year.
THE ETERNAL CASTLE REMASTERED 
INCREDIBLE first impression, less than incredible rest of the impressions. I got my hopes up when I ran in here yelling about it, because directly after that the tone started adding in a layer of camp I found completely unnecessary and ultimately deterring.
APEX LEGENDS 
So, on my personal scale, 3 means "I Don't Regret Playing It." This can obviously mean a wild array of responses from "it was good but not great" to "it had a lot of problems but god it had heart." This 3 means something specific. When I bounced off PUBG and Fortnite, I had individual reasons. PUBG is aesthetically empty, Fortnite is mechanically dull. So when Respawn- arguably one of the best FPS developers in the world- made a battle royale, I got to learn for myself that no, the problem is I think battle royales are fucking boring. The problem is the looting. I do not find trash collection to be a necessary addition to the action game genre. Obviously, the business has shown me that I am wrong, so whatever. At least through Apex Legends I learned that I have no interest in any battle royale ever, because if fucking Respawn can't move me, I can't be moved. On the plus side, this did lead to me pushing a bunch of my friends into Titanfall 2 and playing a bunch of that with them, so that's also a net positive.
BABA IS YOU 
Similarly, Baba Is You taught me that I have no interest in puzzle games unless I'm doing them with a friend. The reward of just like one brain suffering directly at a puzzle game by itself doesn't do a lot for me. The times this game was the most fun for me were when I was talking with someone over the phone, staring at the same puzzles, and one of us would solve it before the other and try to like help them get through. So I might revisit this with someone else, but I'm pretty much done playing it solo.
TRIALS RISING 
everything I said above about Baba is You but replace "puzzle games" with "tandem bikes" and "solve it" with "compensate for the landing"
RISK OF RAIN 2 [n/a]
i played it and i'm not gonna talk about it because i don't like helping gearbox
So I've said what I loved about this game earlier in the thread, and those feelings have just expanded, so instead I'm going to give you a pithy hot take idea that I used to annoy some friends:
If people think game difficulty is bad for the Fear of Missing Out, wait until they hear about foreign languages!
Anyways, the next game I'm gonna be getting is the Nintendo Labo VR kit, so I'll keep you posted with how that stuff goes. I'm saving the one where you look into the bird's butthole for last.
