Whatcha been playing this week, Destructoid?

Man’s got to know his limitations

Hello, friends, welcome to the weekend! I hope it has been a pleasant week for all of you. Whatever it is you have lined up for the next couple of days, I hope you are able to find the time for a little R’n’R, some good company, some good entertainment, some good food, or whatever is needed to lift your spirits and keep you smiling. Keep pushing, folks, we’re doing great.

I’ve struggled to stay focused on a single title this week. Having hit NieR: Automata a mere couple of weeks ago, I’ve also fired up Housemarque’s Returnal — a title I’ve been waiting on for many moons. These two hefty releases offer more than enough gameplay to keep me occupied, but I’m still struggling to stay away from Juri and Rose in Street Fighter V, Outbreak mode in Call of Duty: Cold War, and the Apocalypse event in Rainbow Six Siege. If that’s not enough, I’m currently hovering over a store basket containing, of all the games, Fire Emblem: Three Houses!

It was so much easier in the ’90s when I was a kid and only got access to two console games a year. This problem that I’m facing right now is the single biggest problem being faced by any human being on the planet. Break out the violins, friends.

Well, I might be struggling to stay focused, but I’ll bet y’all are not. Jump into the comments below and fill us in on the video games that are currently occupying your free hours. I don’t care whether they’re old or new, good or bad, on the PS5 or on the Atari Jaguar — please share with us your current gaming obsessions. Once again, thank you for making this article such a pleasure each and every week.

Have a wonderful weekend, from all of us at Destructoid.
