Since I began tracking this the number of video games completed has gone down year after year, except for the outlier year of 2014 (what was going on that year?) I only played 36 games in all of 2016. That number isn’t very large but the quality of game I played this year was very high. The Uncharted Series, Dark Souls 2 and 3, the new Kirby, Dragon Quest Builders (my Game of the Year). I may not have the time I once did to pursue this hobby but the time I can dedicate to it is being taken up with some really phenomenal work.
I may not have the time I once did to pursue this hobby but the time I can dedicate to it is being taken up with some really phenomenal work. Browsing through this list I’m hard-pressed to find a game that I was disappointed in or found objectively bad.
With that here is the list of video games completed in 2016:
Video games complete is another number I’ve been tracking for quite some time, all the way back to 2010. The average so far has been 55 games per year. Despite that I seem to always have a never ending pile of unplayed, and unbeaten video games to play. Despite the tumultuous events of the year I’m only slightly down from my average with 47 games completed in 2015.
PC games got the lion’s share of attention in 2015 totaling 26 of the 47 completed. Of those 26 games Dark Souls consumed the majority of the time I spent playing PC games. After attempting the game multiple times both on the Xbox 360 and PC it finally clicked. I know when it came out I had nothing but bad things to say about Dark Souls and some of my criticisms then still hold true. The manual is woefully inadequate for complexities found in the game and the messages left by other players and wiki sites are a poor substitute for proper documentation. If I was to do a game of the year for 2015 it would be Dark Souls, I haven’t spent that much time with a video game since I was in high school…

It’s once again that most joyous, and stressful, time of the year. Yes, that’s right, the Winter Solstice! The shortest day of the year! I suppose there are some other holidays people celebrate but I don’t really know… I do know that winter holidays means that Festivus is once again upon us! And, as I have for the last four years I participated in Talking Time‘s Gift Exchange.
As it has been every other year it was a wonderful experience! Many thanks to Botticus for the gifts!
