Probably Detroit because it's short

I mean odyssey is a massive time sink.  I've put over 100 hours into the base game and all the DLC.  So i'd run through some shorter games like Detroit first.

Fantastic game though

I'm currently playing DOOM again, trying to finish the campaign that is. Great game but a bit exhausting due to all the non stop action lol.
Finished 2 levels last night. Went to Hell and back!

Oh I should play doom too!

Also I decided to include Vita and 3DS games into this mix. I'll integrate it into the game database at some point, but I've updated the OP with my full backlog.

I watched a playthrough a long time ago, I think it was Easy Allies. I still want to play the game myself.

Doing Detroit. Really liking it a lot.

It's cool how it merges video game tropes with androids.

I am doing great in Detroit with two of the androids, but Conner is just funny haha. I've had a hard time pinning down what his partner wants and now he hates me. The flowchart shows that the majority of people are not making the same dumb mistakes  :P

Yeah detroit is really great, glad you liked it.

Out of your list I'd say you have to play bloodborne next, its one of the best games of the generation and for sure the best game on your list. If you're still in the mood for that kind of game then also Sekiro. I'm about 10 hours into Sekiro and really liking it but I left it at my Uni flat so haven't been able to play it this summer >:(

I didn't enjoy AC Odyssey and dropped it after like 20 hours, its a friggin' long game so if you're not enjoying it 10-15 hours in just let go of it. The first 5 hours or so are fantastic but then it quickly becomes repetitive and boring with the story becoming less interesting and less a part of the game as the open world just gets way too big for its own good.

I don't know why  :(

I have a big draw full of games and I guess I just forgot about sekiro while I was packing to go home for summer and I didn't see it because I've got too many games in that draw!

Yeah bloodborne is fantastic. I tried to get into it again and play Old Hunters but I was awful and out of practice and didn't have the patience to try and get good again.

I'm kidding.  

I am a little rusty replaying it this time.  Not much though.

I have a spreadsheet with the games I need to finish.  I actually popped in Vagrant Story this morning.  Still makes me want to stab my eyes out
