2017 Gaming Queue Report Card

What better way to ring in the new year than to painstakingly remember all the mistakes I've made in the previous year! I thought a fun blog idea would be to go through check all the game queue blogs I've made over 2017, tally up the games I've received and how many I played through!


Over 2017, I bought 33 games(!!) and played through roughly 70% of them! Of those 33 games, 5 of them were PC games I picked up during a steam sale and 1 of those games were for my Xbox One! The majority of games acquired in 2017 were for my PS4 or Nintendo Switch.

Now for the games I did not play. 10 or 30% of the games I acquired I did not get to play for one reason or another. 3 of those games were for my 3DS, which I could not play because I lost my charging pack and was too stubborn to buy another one. 4 of those games I borrowed out while taking a break from them and never got back into the game.

2017 Highlights/Lowlights!

Have to say, my favorite games to play through were Nioh,Persona 5 and Shadow of War. Before going into the demo, I never thought I would like Nioh because of my dislike for the Dark Souls/Bloodborne series. Persona 5 had great music and a captivating story that left me in disbelief that I had a around 100 hours of playtime. For the most part, Shadow of War doubled down on what I liked about Shadow of Mordor and added in loot box system that did not matter until the very end of the game. I liked Shadow of War a bit more than how much I hated the mechanics that ruined the game for me.

In contrast, the games I regret the most for not playing are Nier:Automata (sorry Cody!!), Tales of Beseria and Xenoblade Chronicles 2. I've wanted to play those games so bad but you need to dedicate a fair amount of time into them. IN FAIRNESS, I'm playing through Xenoblade Chronicles 2 right now, just a month late. At the time, I was trying to juggle Final Fantasy XV and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 but wanted to focus on FFXV before ultimately giving up on it. Similarly, I was juggling Persona 5 and Nier before loaning Nier out to a friend while I focused on Persona 5. I have no excuses for Tales of Beseria!! I was so determined to buy Tales of Beseria that I sold almost all my TF2 items for it...then I had to wait for it to go on sale.

In an effort to make sure I play through all the games I buy, this year I haven't looked into any games as far as as two months away. Dragon Ball FighterZ and Monster Hunter World come out on the same day and I cannot wait for either game. Bayonetta 1+2 come out on Switch in February and I have a great fondness for Bayonetta 1 & 2. Here's hoping this year I have at least an 80% completion rate!!
