46. Beat a game you received for free or through a paid subscription service

Telling Lies. If you've played Her Story this plays in a similar format (same developer). I liked it but it's not as good as Her Story, mainly because there's more mystery in HS you need to figure out yourself. Perfect kind of game to put on Game Pass though, I'd recommend checking it out (plus it's short).

17. Beat a shooting game

Mass Effect 3. Definitely have some issues with the end which I assume is where most people's opinions lie, but the journey was still amazing. To me, what makes the trilogy special is that each game has different strengths that make them stand out individually.

8. Beat a spin-off or a game that rebooted a franchise

The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe (or as it was titled when I left it, The Stanley Parable 5: Half Employee, Half Choice)

I can't believe how much content they fit in a single bucket.

how about some Atlus

11. Beat a game made by a developer you like

Persona 5 Royal. I like the new additions, they did a good job integrating it all without it feeling out of place

24. Beat a game with romance as a central theme

Catherine. Unlike Royal with P5, I heard that the additions in Full Body did feel out of place, so I stuck with the original since I already owned it. After watching the new scenes, I believe they fit just fine so if you haven't played either just go with Full Body.

I need to update this more frequently!

36. Beat a game that's been in your backlog for a long time
Sonic Colours

Is a year a long time? I bought this on Wii when the remaster was announced but only just got around to it. Glad I didn't bother with the new one, the art, music and premise are good but there's not enough basic Sonic platforming here for me. Too many slowdown filler levels. Not a bad game though.

13. Beat a game made by an indie developer
Tunic

I expected a cutesy Zelda-like, what I got was a pretty difficult and wonderful experience of discovery that had me feeling the same way I did playing Outer Wilds. Everything this game is trying to do appeals to a different part of me, and it does a great job at most of it. Don't sleep on this!!

35. Beat a game with a lead from a fictional species
Bugsnax, Talkin' Bout

A fun time. Didn't expect such neat characterisation.

27. Beat a game with mystery as a central theme
Telling Lies

Thanks for this rec! I haven't played Her Story but this was an enjoyable unique experience, not perfect but definitely worth a play. I don't get why they shoved the whole thing into such a short timespan though, it stretched credulity somewhat >_> I hope Her Story gets released on consoles at some point so I can try that!

Marble Madness

22. Beat a fighting game
Neo Geo Battle Coliseum

Since I was nearing the final third of my list, I decided to write down my remaining catergories and compare them to my backlog and Games with Gold titles. I found two from the latter that I could knock out within an hour.

oh

that's weird. No one should even been able to edit it

Edit: Oh it got messed up when JONA added himself to the checklist sheet. Not his fault, the first tab was poorly formatted. Should be fine now!
