What Are You Playing This Weekend?

Screw new games. I’m so, so close to finishing The Witness.

If I don’t get it done over the weekend I’m abandoning it forever.

The Witness is fantastic. I honestly believe it’s going to take a gargantuan effort — or Dark Souls 3 — to topple it as my game of the year for 2016. It’s just so intricate, gorgeous, unforgiving, surprising.

A little pretentious but I can forgive that.

The puzzles are great, the learning curve is great. At one point I was fairly critical of the way The Witness teaches players its puzzles, but I think I was a little harsh in hindsight.

Either way, I’m close to being done.

What’s everyone else playing this weekend?
