Games that just didn’t cut the mustard Jun-Dec 2021: Dark Souls, Astria Ascending, Flynn Son of Crimson, Nier Automata and more!

Welcome one and all, to another one of my bi-annual public therapy sessions. You know, I love videogames. But some games are shit, and playing shit games results in a build-up of negativity – negativity which must be purged in the fires of sick journalistic burns, which I will now vomit out onto the Internet.…
