This one isn’t actually even a backlog game, since I loved the original Resident Evil all the way back when it came out on the PlayStation, and the remake on GameCube became one of my favorite games ever. So essentially this is just me going back to one of my beloved titles once more, this time hunting for Trophies.
I’m by no means a specialist in first-person shooters, and only once in a great while I even find interest in playing those kinds of games. My aversion is alleviated by mixing the gameplay with something else, making it feel less like a war simulation and more like a different video game altogether, that just happens to play like a war simulation. I also enjoy single-player games more than multiplayers, and as many FPS games lean towards the multiplayer culture, I often feel like those games aren’t meant for me. That’s why shooters with clear emphasis on the single-player experience are much more interesting to me.
Last year, I was looking for something to play on my PlayStation Vita, and asked a community of my fellow gamers for suggestions based on my personal video game preferences. My affection for a good metroidvania game inspired numerous recommendations to play Guacamelee!, being one of the few games of that type on the Vita. Even though the outward appearance and PSN description of that game didn’t appeal to me much, I decided to give it a go based on how many people felt it would be right up my alley.
