What are we all playing this weekend?

What are we all playing this weekend?

The race towards the end of the year continues, and we’ve started talking amongst ourselves about our favourite games from 2020. This is challenging both because there have been a lot of great games this year, and because none of us can remember anything that happened before August. We’ll do our research and name our favourites across December, just as Horace demands, but what about you. Do you already know what your favourite game of 2020 is?

More urgently, what are you playing this weekend? Here’s what we’re clicking on!


Before getting wrapped up in the definitely ridiculously long Cyberpunk 2077, I’m going to catch up on some of the smaller games I’ve missed over the last few weeks, like The Pathless. It seems like a nice and relaxed way to spend a few hours this weekend.


To the surprise of absolutely no-one, I’m going to spend more time with my beloved Yakuza LAD. Mincing zombies in Call Of Duty Blops Cow is proving an excellent pastime as well, so I will continue honing my craft there. With Black Friday sprinting at full speed straight at me, I’m feeling under pressure to finally part with lots of money and get a new laptop. I can feel my wallet vibrating with fear as I type this.


I spent the past week playing The Pathless, which is an unremarkable but thoroughly pleasant game. I’m likely going to play Assassin’s Creed Valhalla next. I’ve never liked an Assassin’s Creed before, and I haven’t played any of the last 3 (4?) entries in the series. The promise of stomping around with a big axe is enough to draw me back in.


Despite my plans to go raiding in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla last weekend, I ended up getting suckered into Desperados III instead – and I have never fallen in love with a game so hard. It might take me two hours to do a single mission, but it scratches the very same silent, unseen assassin itch I had playing Dishonored 2, and I simply can’t get enough of it.


I’m still neck-deep in Apex Legends. I’m winning around one in six matches at the moment, which I think is pretty great. Doesn’t take the sting out of the other five matches, which is why I want to get better and better at the game until I start to win 100% of my matches. Which is of course impossible, so I guess I’m consigning myself to a lifetime of unhappiness. Maybe I should rethink some things.

But you, dearest reader, what are you playing?
