Let's all happily put 2016 in the rearview and get 2017 started.  I played everything under the sun in 2016, but actually finished very few games.  We'll see if this year fares any better.  

-  Final Fantasy XIV.  A.  This one will likely just be ongoing for the next couple years.  Get to the end of the story, grind for gear, wait for next patch/expansion.  Rinse, repeat. (all the hours)
-  Theatrhythm Final Fantasy (3DS) - February 6 - A.  I technically "beat" this last year, but have gone back through and beaten the "Ultimate Score" for every song and unlocked every character.  Now it's finished.  smile  (60 hours)
-  Nier Automata (PS4) - March 28 - A-.  I finished the first two endings, and started the third.  Enjoyed it, but it hasn't quite blown me away yet like the previous game did.  Will keep going for the other 4.  (28 hours, so far)
-  Horizon Zero Dawn (PS4) - April 4 - A++++.  I never expected to enjoy this, and came away completely thrilled with it.  Possibly my favorite game of this generation, so far.  Incredible world, an amazing heroine, a brilliant story, and engaging combat.  Just stellar all around.

Currently Playing
-  Final Fantasy Tactics A2 (3DS)
-  Pocket Card Jockey (3DS)
-  Personal 5 (PS4)
-  Torment:  Tides of Numeria (PC)

Played and Gave Up On
-  Dragon Quest VIII (3DS).  Turns out my tolerance for old-school, grindy JRPG's is very low these days.  Got about 15 hours in before getting bored.
-  Neverwinter (PS4).  While it's the best console MMO not named FF XIV, the end-game grind just isn't very fun in this one, and there's absolutely zero sense of community.
-  Dragon Age Inquisition (PS4).  Got about 50 hours in before wandering off to other things.
-  Uncharted 4 (PS4).  This series just does not click with me, at all.  I just get bored every time, even though the productions values are off the charts.   Around 8 hours.
-  Zelda:  BotW (WiiU).  Couldn't hold a candle to Horizon Zero Dawn.  Just seemed so dull in comparison, with no interesting story or characters to speak of.  About 6 hours.

After a slow first half of the year in 2016, I made serious effort to work on my backlog and managed to finish 31 games overall. In addition to regular games, some of them were in the form of major DLC content (ie. expansions), and some were in the form of shorter experiences such as VR.

Previous years:

Games Finished in 2017

  • Dishonored 2 - As Corvo. Non-lethal and never spotted.
  • Frog Fractions - This one barely counts as a game, but I'm counting it and there's nothing you can do about it!

Oculus Rift

  • Firewatch
  • Horizon: Zero Dawn - Platinum trophy
  • King's Quest - Chapters 3, 4 and 5
  • The Last Guardian

  • Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice DLC case

My gaming time gets shorter, my gaming backlog keeps growing and apparently, I have the attention span of a blue tang.  My games finished last year are too pathetic to mention, so I won't.

I am currently playing (with no promise or hope of finishing) the following:

Mafia 3 (already feeling the tedium set in now that the honeymoon phase is over)
Just Cause 3 (re-purchased for the DLC I will likely never experience)
Watch Dogs 2 (This one really feeds my gaming need to get distracted)
Factorio (can one complete a game such as this)
XCOM 2 (have not started, but given it's slow methodical nature, unlikely to be beaten this year or any other)
COD Infinite Warfare (only game I have a slim chance of finishing due to the usual length of CoD campaigns)
Titanfall 2 (see above)
Rocksmith (I only aspire to be able to play a few songs to 90%)
SteamWorld Heist (same rule as applied to XCOM)
Hitman (just started, but a slow game experience so far)

Back burner with the slim chance of returning
Deus Ex Mankind Divided (sadly, not as taken as I hoped)

Finished in 2017:

Walking Dead Season Two (my rating 8/10)

Batman: A Telltale Series (8/10) The storyline was well done, and they took some big leaps from the DC canon. Technically it was a little bit janky, but the characters more than made up for it.

Banner Saga 2 iOS
(9/10) Part 2 was even better than part one. This is easily my favorite SRPG on iOS.

Tyranny (9/10) I loved just about everything related to this title. I consider it to be one of the best CRPGs of the past several years. ALthough it is much more limited in scope than Baldur's Gate of Pillars of Eternity, I vastly preferred the tight storyline and world.

Horizon Zero Dawn (10/10) A spectacular game that does almost everything right. I would have loved a few more entertaining NPCs, but overall the story, mechanics, and pacing were best-in-class. Probably my game of the year.

A Wolf Among Us (7/10) This is a solid entry in the Telltale series of games, but it is made much better if you have read the comic book series. The story is a murder mystery, and the lead characters are all well scripted. Things wrap up a little too quickly in the final act, however, and it spoils the ending somewhat.

2Dark: (6/10) This is a very morbid game from the creator of Alone in the Dark. You play a father trying to recover his abducted children in a town that is home to a series of serial killers. Yes, a series of them. The game had great potential, but was marred by cost overruns from the Kickstarter, and the control scheme was very poorly implemented. 10 levels were reduced to 6, so the story was butchered along the way. Everything felt rushed.

Uncharted 4: (10/10) My game of the year (even though it came out in 2016). I enjoyed it more than Horizon ZD, as I am much more invested in the characters after 4 full games. This entry didn't break new ground, but the production values were through the roof and the story wraps up beautifully. The only downfall was the final boss battle quicktime event. Yuck.

Currently Playing:

Trails of Cold Steel (8/10)
Nioh (9/10)

Gave Up On:

The Last Guardian: sluggish controls and a wonky camera made for a frustrating experience, plus the lifeless world was rather boring
Dragon Age 2: Dated. Uninteresting. Another game where I hated the camera.
Inside: Side scrolling boredom. I enjoyed it for about an hour, but then realized that most of the puzzles were simply slight variations of one another. The game is beautiful and cryptic, but I wasn't willing to slog through it to see the ending.
Yomawari Night Alone: I love horror games, but this one did little for me. Too light on the story, and the horror.
Severed iOS a beautiful looking game from the creators of guacamole (sp?) but.....rather vapid. Taptaptaptaptaptaptap ... very little story. It got boring very quickly.
Resident Evil Revelations PC this is a 3DS port that I hoped I would enjoy. Unfortunately, it is dated and rather uninspired. I suppose on a handheld it would have been more impressive, but on the PC it was simply outclassed by just about every other Resident Evil.
Heroes of Normandie iOS A WWII strategy game with a great premise, but less tactics than I expected, and more RNG than needed
The VoidThis is an obtuse Russian game, where color needs to be harvested for life, and you take part in a battle to save the sisters ("witches"). I couldn't get into the game because the instructions were vague, and the walking speed was so damned slow. Ugh.
The Cat Lady: This is an adventure game about a woman who commits suicide, and makes a pact with "Death" to return to life and eliminate 5 people who prey upon others. The story was too dark and morbid for my tastes. Also, I was not fond of the controls (keyboard only) or presentation.

Holy crap. It's April and I completely forgot about putting up my list. Very well, here goes:

Skyrim (PC)
Skyrim SE (PS4)
Just Cause 3 (PS4)
Rise of the Tomb Raider (PS4)

Behold the glory of my wildly outdated blog that I ignore!
Filmmaking is vision plus faith plus balls, all 3 of which Hollywood knows little about.
