Just finished Infinite Wealth after 165 hours. Loved it.

Just learned that Adachi, one of my favorite characters, is the voice actor for Dyne/Laike in SSSC. Pretty neat.

Oh yeah, I also just finished Infinite Wealth after almost 80 hours. I also loved it.

I'm curious where the extra play time comes from, WD. I did almost all of Kasuga's side quests, all of second protagonist's memory missions, everyone's heart links, completed many but not all of the games (didn't go past level 20 in Sujimon), did both basic dungeons (but no DLC dungeons), and set the game aside for now rather than playing around with Premium Adventure. I also spent quite a bit of time just taking in the vibes.

Since then, I've started Final Fantasy VII Rebirth but I haven't gotten far (just to exploring around Kalm), and I also have been goofing around with the digital board game Billion Road.

I had 84% completion.

Did all the items you listed.
Dondoko Island and Sujimon were both completed at 100%, which probably took 25 hours each.

Did the "Big Swell" dlc. Not worth it, other than the added cutscenes, which were great. Just watch them on YT. I thought it would be some exciting new mini-game. It's just another 5 level dungeon, with a new aesthetic.

I played Mahjong for at least 20 hours. Always been addicted to it.
Poker, Blackjack, Oicho-kabu & Koi-Koi for at least 15 hours.

I wasted at least 10 hours on Virtua Fighter, because I couldn't beat Dural. Never got the achievement. To this day, I've never beat Dural..

Like you, I just like taking it in at times as well. Swimming and sunset views.

Seonhee has become my favorite character of the new cast.
Nanba went from most hated to 2nd favorite.
Ichiban took a step back. Somehow he feels less confidant than the previous game, even after all that he's accomplished.
His relationship to Saeko was also odd to me. They don't seem to be each others type.
Her reasons for stepping away were genuine, but executed in a way that made her look mean spirited.

Hey. I've been kinda quiet cause my PS4 Pro broke. I got it used so I guess there's that. It ok, because I just went ahead and got a PS5 Slim w/ Disc Drive. It's great because it plays my Survivor DVDs from the US here and I easily changed the region on startup. It was so convenient, the PS4 didn't do that so I'm happy with my purchase.

I did manage to beat a few games during the past 4-5 months. I've also been kinda quiet on here because I just deleted Discord, I was thinking about what my doctor told me that, "[ I ] got depressed, cause when my parents would leave me alone I would go on the computer talking to random names seeking relationships" so I went ahead and just deleted it. I think I'm gonna stay on a more public forum like this one where anyone can see what's been posted vs. hiding on real-time chat where there's no real supervision or eyes, plus I wanna work on my social media more. I was thinking I might be more of normie than I thought cause I can't be bothered with instant messaging programs like AIM anymore like I did when I was younger? It sorta creeps me out... Anyway

I managed to beat: Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, Hakuoki: Stories of the Shinsengumi, Atelier Escha & Logy, steins;Gate, Life is Strange, Chrono Trigger (PSX), Lollipop Chainsaw & Coffee Talk.

Right now I'm almost finished with Atelier Shallie and I'll be done with all the standard Atelier games for the PS3. And I can move on to the PS4 games. I wanna just finish up a few exclusives for the PS3 and just kinda shelve the console: Folklore, Nier I've gotten recommendations for. And a few stragglers (/non-trophy games I ignore): Heavenly Sword, Eternal Sonata, Resonance of Fate (looks lol), White Knight Chronicles. I feel bad I never managed to beat Final Fantasy XIII-2 and 3 and I almost don't care about leaving it on the system unbeaten. And the bottom of the barrel for me for the PS3 is the Tales of games that're left of the system: Tales of Graces f, and the 2 Xillias. The rest I can find on PS4.

On PS4/5 I've been into 'cozy' games like farmsim-like lifes games..... Little Dragons Cafe, I kinda wanna check out HM titles and I'm almost kinda avoiding Stardew Valley and Minecraft but I've found a fondness for Dragon Quest Builders and Potion Permit. Kinda wanna check out the new Survivor game

I've just been trying to adjusting to my new life here alone but I always come back here for some reason. It just reminds me of my parents and Christmas.

^ That's a pretty impressive list of games to beat. And I get what you're saying about social media. These days the only social media I frequent is Reddit, and even there I've taken a big step back since last year (no big/default subreddits). I'm on a couple of discords with friends, but that's pretty much just for arranging or playing games.

I'm still playing Final Fantasy VII Rebirth (on chapter 10 now). I really am enjoying myself, but it has been hard for me to focus on long sessions on the PS5. I've been mostly exploring each area, too, so that has slowed down the playthrough. I love the way Tifa and Barret especially have been written in the remake trilogy, with more detail on their backgrounds and, in Tifa's case, her perspective on what is happening with Cloud.

I've also almost beaten Lunar Silver Star Story Touch. I got used to the touch controls pretty quickly. The game sounds really good with the Saturn music, and the widescreen feels very well done. By the time I got to Meribia, I was blazing through the game, enjoying the story and dialogue. My one complaint is that I sometimes accidentally skip cutscenes because I tap to wake up my phone, but tapping twice (I think) skips the cutscene. Otherwise, it's nice to see how faithful they have been to the Playstation version:

I've also been dabbling with The Ur-Quan Masters (replay, beat), Wildermyth (did first two campaigns), Morrowind (played most of main quest), Luigi's Mansion 3 (currently on floor 7), Super Mario RPG (still near beginning getting first star), and some others.
