An End To 2017 – Video Games Completed

Video Games Completed 2017
Atari 2600 Collection, Portland Retro Gaming Expo, 2017
Because this is now an annual thing that I do. Because I can’t help myself from keeping stupid lists. Because my backlog never seems to shrink. Here is the list of video games I completed in 2017.
Unlike 2016 not much stands out. The new Mario is a highlight, Bloodborne was fantastic. For new releases that is about all that I can really recall. I finally finished Star Control II after having it in the ‘to play’ pile for literally decades. Other games that have been sitting in the pile for far too long, like Pharoah and the Star Wars Dark Forces series, also got scratched off the list. Last year was also different in that it bucked the trend of less and less that has been the norm.
Regardless, you’ll find below the fold my list of completed games for last year. I wish I remembered more of them. Actually, I wish I’d find some sort of useful pastime… =P

Would rather be out swimming, running, or camping. Works in state government. Spent a youth reading genre-fiction; today, he is making up for it by reading large quantities of non-fiction literature. The fact that truth, in every way, is more fascinating than fiction still tickles him.
