Compared to last year, this year was a banner year for playing and finishing games, despite my feeling that I haven’t been playing games enough this year. We’ll see how game playing fits into my new schedule for next year.
So, what did I finish? I finished all three seasons of the Sam & Max reboot. I finished the Mass Effect trilogy. I finished Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age 2 (I’m still working on Dragon Age: Inquisition). I finished Persona 4: Dancing All Night. I finished Akiba’s Trip. I finished at least one more personal story in The Old Republic (I only have Trooper, Bounty Hunter, Jedi Knight, and Imperial Agent to go, and should have Bounty Hunter done shortly). I finished Lost Dimension.
So what I just play? I played Conception II. I played Arcanum for a bit. I played Valhalla Knights 3. I played Dungeon Travelers 2. I played Record of Agarest War Zero. I played, as stated above, Dragon Age: Inquisition. I played X-Men: Madness in Murderworld. I tried playing the Gold Box D&D games. For most of these, the reason I didn’t finish them is that they annoyed me in some way, or were so long that I got distracted by other shinies … which is a habit of mine, in fact.
This year, it looks like JRPGs including dungeon crawlers are on the menu, as well as hopefully Dragon Age: Inquisition, although its similarities to the Elder Scrolls games are annoying me quite a bit there. But we’ll see how this all goes next year.
