I played and beat FF7 for the Switch. Between this and FF9, I have finished two Final Fantasy games in my life. Having the x3 speed really helps. In the past, the endgame of a Final Fantasy would always bog me down and I'd lose interest.

I'm waiting for Fire Emblem: Three Houses. I'm also on the fence about Dragon Quest Builders 2. (Encouragement/discouragement welcome!) In the meantime, I'm replaying Witcher 3.

This is the problem I've been having in my current playthrough of FF9, which has been progressing at a snail's pace for some time now. My party at this point is so strong that the battles aren't really engaging me. This is a common problem with late game Final Fantasy but what really causes problems for me is that the battles still manage to take a long time. In, say, FF6 the endgame battles may have been trivial but at least you just cut through them very quickly. Here between the load times and the long animations (even just choosing a normal attack it feels like characters are doing a leisurely jog to the enemy before striking) every encounter feels like it's taking several times as long as it should. Earlier in the game there was enough strategizing to be done that I didn't mind so much, but now it's really dragging the game down for me.

Playing Space Engineers. While not quite challenging, its still fun to build massive ships and space stations, or drop down to a planet and build a mining outpost there.

Cadence of Hyrule, on and off. It's a pretty short game, but since it's randomly generated, there's some replay value to it. I want to try the two-player mode, but my husband has been pretty busy so I haven't asked him.
