Games I’ve been playing – December 2019

Happy new year!

The last few months of last year were a bit of a blur for me. December in particular I am not even entirely sure of the games I actually played and which ones I thought I played. So I will just stick to the ones I am absolutely sure I played for this post.

One of the things I wanted to do for December was to finish some games that I was close to the end. Another was to get some easy trophies/achievements I was missing to finally move on from them. In the end I was only able to achieve it with Nier: Automata. I guess this gives me some thing to look forward in the beginning of the year.

Anyway, enough rambling, let’s get on with this!

UPDATE: And I just remembered one game I forgot to include the first time. I put it at the end of the list since I don’t have enough to say about it for a whole new post. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Favorite games of the decade – Part 3

This will be my last list covering my favorite games of the last decade. Again these will be all PC games. In case you missed the other ones, you can find Part 1 here and Part 2 here. For convenience let me just copy and paste my criteria for this list:

First I am sticking only to games that I actually finished. Or at least finished one route if it has multiple story routes. Otherwise this list would be much bigger.

Secondly, I am not sticking to any particular number of games or ranking them. This is just the ones I can remember from the top of my head and they are all special in my heart for different reasons.

Lastly, this is my personal list. Yours will surely be different. In fact, if you made a blog post like this feel free to link it in the comments below or if you don’t have a blog of your own feel free to write down your list there. 🙂

Ok. Let’s talk about the games now!

Favorite games of the decade – Part 2

Continuing on my list of the games of the decade but this time with the PC games. If you want to check Part 1 and my picks for console games you can find it here. I will break this into two posts though because there is a lot of PC games and I need a bit of time to get everything written down and sorted out. :p

Also, in case you missed the first time here are my criteria for these lists:

First I am sticking only to games that I actually finished. Or at least finished one route if it has multiple story routes. Otherwise this list would be much bigger.

Secondly, I am not sticking to any particular number of games or ranking them. This is just the ones I can remember from the top of my head and they are all special in my heart for different reasons.

Lastly, this is my personal list. Yours will surely be different. In fact, if you made a blog post like this feel free to link it in the comments below or if you don’t have a blog of your own feel free to write down your list there. 🙂

We good? Ok, let’s go!

Favorite games of the decade – Part 1

Since it seems to be the trendy thing among the blogosphere to make a list of their favorite games of the decade I figured I might as well join in!

Before we start though, let me explain my criterias.

First I am sticking only to games that I actually finished. Or at least finished one route if it has multiple story routes. Otherwise this list would be much bigger.

Secondly, I am not sticking to any particular number of games or ranking them. This is just the ones I can remember from the top of my head and they are all special in my heart for different reasons.

Lastly, this is my personal list. Yours will surely be different. In fact, if you made a blog post like this feel free to link it in the comments below or if you don’t have a blog of your own feel free to write down your list there. 🙂

This post will be only for the console games. The PC games will be on the next post.

Alright, with that out of the way, let’s get on with the show!

Games I’ve been playing – November 2019

After recovering somewhat from my depression on October I began this month with the intention of playing ALL THE GAMES! … which didn’t last for long as I my plans got disrupted by the Ishgardian Restoration in Final Fantasy XIV and that sweet, sweet craft XP. But that also didn’t last as long as I thought it would and I end up going back to some other games I wanted to play.

In the end I played a lot of games but I didn’t feel like I played enough of them. In fact I barely touched some of them but I will mention them here anyway least I forget my current thoughts about these games.

With all that said, these are the games I’ve been playing this past month:

Games I’ve been playing – October 2019

I am sure I am starting to sound like a broken record by now but I had a lot of plans for this month that ended up dashed by depression.

It might seem strange to have depression stop me enjoying certain games but that is just how it is for me. When I am suffering from it I tend to stick to just certain, known games, usually ones that don’t require much energy, thinking or just have something I feel like playing at that moment. MMOs are the ones that suffer the most as I also don’t feel like doing any kind of social activity, even more so if it means dealing with complete strangers.

The good news though is that I seem to be getting over this particular crisis and I am getting back to a “MUST PLAY ALL THE GAMES!” mood. Which is a good sign in this case. XD

Anyway, on to the games!

If I could only play 5 games in a year

Naithin, of Time to Loot, suggested this writing prompt over the Blaugust Discord:

For one whole year you are only allowed to play five games (including DLCs).

Apparently it is something that started on Twitter and is now making the rounds through the blogosphere. Naithin decided to add a few rules though because he felt that just being allowed to play 5 games for an entire year wasn’t punishment enough!

Games I’ve been playing – September 2019

My goal for September was to continue playing the same games as I was playing in the previous month. Failing that (which I kinda expected to happen) then it would be to make as much progress in Judgment and Fire Emblem Three Houses as I could as well as get back into Monster Hunter World.

To the surprise of no-one the later end up happening. Well, sort of. I did play a bunch of Judgement and Fire Emblem Three Houses. Monster Hunter World though I kept post-poning for a reason or another. Despite that I didn’t feel like I played enough of those two games despite having made some good progress on them. To make matters worse I got hit with depression on the last week of the month and end up updating my mods for Fallout 4 to serve as my “comfort food” of gaming and to see if it would scratch my itch for something creative.

I better start talking about each game individually least I start to ramble!

Games I’ve been playing – August 2019

There were so many games to play this month. So many that I almost lost what little reason I have and went “Let’s play ALL the  games!”. Not trying that was the wisest choice because even the ones I decided to play didn’t get as much time in them as I wished due to a combination of general lack of energy and being busy with Blaugust.

I’d like this next month to at least keep playing the new ones and making some progress on them though. But we’ll see how the month turns out.

Alright, this is what I have been up to this month:
