Claim a post. Update said post with your progress throughout the year. Share your feelings about the games you've played.
Or not. Given the VOAT-like roots of this forum, I thought we might do away with all imposed rules, and let everyone set their own goals.
You want to finish 52 games this year? Sure, go ahead.
You want to play 5 guro VNs? By all means!
You want to spend the year sniping noobs in Calladuty? We won't judge you.
I totally will though

As an incentive, anyone who succeeds in their set yearly goals will get a handmade MSPaint rendition of their avatars delivered before 31.12.2019

Okay. I'll claim this spot then. Let's see how 2019 works out!

Stated Goal: 3 Games a month, or 36 total by Dec. 31st, 2019.

For funsies I guess I'll also total my R6 Siege time this year, given it is absolutely my #1 time sucker whenever I sit down to play something.

R6 Siege, 2019 Time sink: Start: 425 Hours || Current: 492 || Result: +67 Hours (Last Update: Jan. 19th, 2019)
====================

Games Completed in 2019:

January:

1. one night, hot springs (Steam: ~60 minutes to complete, 7/7 Achievements)

About: This was an f2p VN on Steam that honestly, I would have overlooked if not for friends and user reviews. It's a bit sweet and sour this one. I'm not trans, I'll never be trans, but I appreciate the peak into that kind of situation a story like this provides. It's educational in a way.

2. Lucy Got Problems (Steam: ~6.6 Hours, 36/36 Achievements)

About: This is a stupid and lewd, but sometimes funny VN filled to the brim with Video Game/Movie and anime references. I followed a community guide to get all the achievements and probably wouldn't re-read this. Designs were cute, mostly I'm a sucker for dark elves though.

Claiming the post for future use and cheating a bit like a proper yakuza

  1. Yakuza 0 (PC) IN-PROGRESS

    2 and a half hours in: pretty positive impressions so far. A lot more exposition than I expected but most importantly, punching people feels good in this game.
    26 hours in: basically stuck https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steam/apps/362680/header.jpgdoing the real estate story line and scanning the map for side missions and those sweet sweet telephone cards 😏
  2. RESIDENT EVIL 2 / BIOHAZARD RE:2 "1-Shot Demo" (PC) COMPLETED

    Really positive first impressions from the first 30 minutes. The return to the roots is appreciated and I will definitely check the full fat game at some point in the future. Looks like a good port as well.
  3. Fran Bow (PC) COMPLETED

    Easily the best PnC I've played recently, pretty much what I wanted -the still pretty decent- Anna's Quest to be. Highly recommended.
  4. TBD

My first goal of the year will be to (at least try to) finish Muv Luv+Muv Luv Alternative
(But I sure as hell won't start with them)
2018 list

Game 1: The House in Fata Morgana: A Requiem for Innocence - started on 11.12.2018, finished on 01.01.2019 (18:33) - 5/5
Well, that's one way to start a year. The fandisk to Fata Morgana is, unlike most of fandisks, a required reading. Fleshes out the origin story of the first game, gives you a nice conclusion to the good ending and has also a few short stories that give you more insight into what went after some of the doors.

Game 2: The Last of Us (PS4) - started on 01.01.2019, finished on 13.01.2019 (11:34) - 2/5
Well, the walking simulator parts were nice enough, story was B-tier level TV series, so passable. The rest though. Ugh. Bad stealth sections, bad shooting sections, bad survivor horror sections. Also performance on PS4 was abysmal with regular drops into lower 40's.
Game 3: The Last of Us: Left Behind (PS4) - started on 13.01.2019, finished on 14.01.2019 (2ish hours) - 3/5
One notch higher because the DLC has way more walking simulator sections. Also not as long. But it's pretty much a chapter of the main game that was cut for various reasons.

Game X: Picross 3D DLC - started on 01.09.2018
Game X: Muv Luv - started on 15.01.2019

Fuck it, I'm in. Here's to a negative ratio of games played to games bought in 2019.

I still need to get the final missing ending in House in Fata Morgana, then read the bonus stuff and replay the whole game for the achievement (and because I loved it so much that I want to do it). Afterwards I'll think whether I should start the prequel or wait a while and play something else in the meantime. Perhaps Hitman 2016 or Ys 6, or maybe another VN. Or maybe Smash Ultimate's adventure mode.

OK, I'll start. I'll mention the platform where I'm playing each game, though they'll be all mixed in the same list. I'm also adding the date on which I'm done with the game, and also if I left it unfinished, in which case I'll try to explain why in the commentary below its entry, along with a guess regarding whether I may play it again in the future or not. If I don't mention my playthrough status, assume it's completed (at least the story, because I never finish all the optional stuff). Without further ado, here's my list:

1. Evo Explores (01/02 - Steam - unfinished)
It's a blatant Monument Valley ripoff, right up to the art style, and I bought it because of this. I love both of those titles, so I was hoping to love this too. It's not bad, but also not particularly good. While it has some interesting mechanics that I don't recall seeing in the original games, the camera is sometimes a big problem. At some points you're supposed to click on the bottom part of ground to move, but the game only registers the upper tiles, so you'll have to find a farther spot in which to click. It's hard to explain, but you'll definitely notice it if you play it (especially if you also played the games it took all this inspiration from). After a while this got so annoying that I decided to call it quits at level 12, which took me 56 minutes and seems to be very near the end (I counted 14 level doors in the hub). I can't really say "don't buy this" since I kinda enjoyed it, but if you're looking for a nice puzzle game, you'd be better off grabbing both Monument Valley titles on your mobile store of choice. And after you're done with those, if you still want more, only then you should start thinking about the possibility of purchasing this one on sale. Personally I won't be back to finish Evo Explores, as I'd rather replay the original games if I ever need another fix.

2. Call of Duty: United Offensive (01/15 - Steam)
The expansion for the first Call of Duty, it's more of the same but shorter. It feels very similar to the main game, which was a spiritual sequel to Medal of Honor: Allied Assault. I guess the game is fine, but it feels rather dated (as did the base game when I played it last year). Too many sections where you get shot at random, which require a lot of trial and error to beat. It's not bad, but it's not something I'd recommend nowadays. Had I played it back when it was released, I'm sure I would have loved it as much as I loved MoH:AA. As it stands, it doesn't have noteworthy shooting mechanics, story or mission design, so there's really no reason to play it now unless you're dying for a WWII FPS. I plan on going through the entire series in release order, since I've only played Modern Warfare, World at War, Black Ops, Infinite Warfare, and a bit of 3 and MW3. Here's hoping CoD2 is more enjoyable than the first one and its expansion.

I'm not sure what overall goals I will have, but the first one will be finishing the Umineko Answer Arcs.
And buying and finishing Yakuza Kiwami once it releases.

Making this a bit more standardized:

Goals:
  • Finish Umineko Answer Arcs
  • Finish Subnautica
  • Finish Yakuza Kiwami
I'll update those goals when I decide on new ones.

Claiming this post.

I won't try for a specific number this year and will only play the must-play games like Sekiro, RE2 & whatever cool indie games that come out this year.
One main gaming resolution of mine is to avoid multiplayer games as much as possible since last 3 years were all PUBG/Overwatch.

That said i am planning to start with an Indie gem which i still haven't gotten to, even tho i really wanted to since i heard about it - Doki Doki Literature Club

Sure, I'll claim a spot.

In 2018 I completed 100 games (had to hurry on those last four when I realized I was close to 100).
Honestly if I set my goal to 50 games but focus on some bigger stuff more often I'd be pretty pleased. I tend to skip the bigger, longer games to crank out a bunch of smaller, indie games. I need to do a better mix.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Completed list:
1. Timespinner - 01/01/19
- Metroidvania very much in the Symphony of the Night style. It's pretty decent but not amazing. It doesn't really do anything surprising or feel like it has its own identity all that much. The orb stuff (weapons) does allow some creativity and choice but I didn't like how the leveling worked for the character and weapons. I'd put others above it but if you've played many in the "genre" and haven't played this then give it a shot. It does start a bit slow, though.

2. Burly Men at Sea - 01/01/19
- Simple storybook style game. Only took 30 minutes to run through to get one of the endings. Very simple interactions but depending on what you do you get one of twelve endings. Looking at the achievements I apparently got one of the lesser common ending routes. It was fine and I could see going back in to see more paths.

3. Kolumno - 01/01/19
- bobnowhere recommended this in Discord so I gave it a shot. It's genre would be reaction-based game I guess? It's fun enough and worth the $1 as I was engaged to go through it in one go essentially. Got all the achievements as well in 50 minutes total.

4. Old Man's Journey - 01/02/19
- Bought this at the same time as Burly Men at Sea and kind of just pictured both to be similar. In a way they are in that they're basic games telling simple stories. I preferred Burly Men at Sea for simply being more interesting as I found the puzzles and movement very slow in Old Man's Journey. The only reason I bothered finishing it is I got around halfway through in around 30 minutes the first night I tried it and figured I should just complete it.

5. Mega Man 11 - 01/03/19
- Really solid Mega Man title. I thought the Double Gear system was a great way to make it feel fresh. I kind of wish it had more reasons to use it but then again I'm just picturing mixing Mega Man with some Viewtiful Joe. The levels had a lot of fuckery but the store evens it out with being able to get buffers and extra lives for pits and spikes. After around the third robot master I never got a game over again because of all the store items. Highly recommended for a good time.

6. The Gardens Between - 01/04/19
- I wish I liked this more. It's totally adequate and it does do some creative things with the mechanic. But it's really just a pretty version of scrubbing a timeline back and forth with occasional interaction that then changes that timeline. In doing so you're just trying to get a lit lantern to the end of each level. Too much time is spent watching the characters walk around when you already know the solution. Despite my complaints I did enjoy it some and the look of it is pretty great. Also, a nice bonus that they have an original song at the end that was to my liking.

7. Wunderdoktor - 01/05/19
- There's a #DiscoverIndies thing online that asks you to play an indie game you've never heard of before. I asked for a suggestion in Discord and this was the first that I can't recall ever hearing about before. It was fun, albeit pretty simple. It's a Trauma Center-esque if each patient took 15-30 seconds and you did them fairly rapidly. The wacky illnesses and ways they mix things up keeps it fresh and there's a very slight puzzle element that comes up occasionally to earn achievements. Not a strong recommendation at the regular price but amusing at a sale price.

8. Guacamelee! 2 - 01/06/19
- This is definitely a more-of-the-same sort of sequel. Nothing really feels that different to the point that I couldn't remember what was a new ability sometimes and what was in the prior game. Mostly it just has a lot more chicken playing parts. It's solid but not great. Whatever your feelings were about the first game will be mirrored here.

9. ШП - ShP - 01/06/19
- Barely looked into this before buying and it wasn't quite what I expected. Even figuring out the right menu option to start and of the three puzzles is a bit of a challenge. Everything is purposely obtuse and I don't know if it's by design or bad translation from Russian into English. But I do think it's largely designed that way. I did look up tips on roughly 20% of the game but that was mostly just to get going. It's hard to recommend but if you like to poke and prod things and try to think outside the box maybe give it a shot? Took me a little over an hour to complete the three puzzles with the tips to move me along. But once you understand how the game works you'll probably scoot through it quickly.

10. Shadow of the Colossus Remake - 01/08/19
- Still a fantastic game! I hadn't played it since the original release but I decided I'd play on Hard since I had gone through it before. It did add some frustration but it also made taking them down more exciting. Turns out I really only remembered about half of the colossi and only how to get to like three of them on the map so it felt fairly fresh. The one bummer for me is the only real reason to play on Hard for trophies is a single trophy to beat it in 5:21:28. My final time at the end was 5:22:29. I spent at least 15 combined minutes just playing around on Agro and riding back and forth in an open field trying to see how many hawks would fly around with me. Oh well. There's no chance I'm working on the platinum so it's not a huge deal.

11. Crash Bandicoot from the N. Sane Trilogy - 01/09/19
- It's remarkable how bad of a platformer this first game is. I was told the first aged poorly and the other two are much better so I look forward to digging into those to see how they fare. The feel of movement and hitboxes are simply terrible. I went in thinking it'd be fun to platinum all three games since I love platformers and I always platinum Ratchet games and figured this might be about the same. No chance. I have doubts I'll ever return to this first game.

12. Spyro the Dragon from the Reignited Trilogy - 01/12/19
- Got the platinum trophy in 6:49. Compared to Crash this is an amazing game. It's honestly really basic and feels like a kid friendly platformer. I did some skimming of what's in the next two and it looks like they change things up a bit and add more abilities so hopefully it becomes more interesting? Nothing was ever all that exciting but I enjoy platformers enough that hunting for all the gems kept me going.

13. Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back - 01/17/19
- After my thoughts above on Crash Bandicoot I was very hesitant but I eventually started this up. It's not bad! Vast improvement on the original game with a better feel of movement and having the slide, slide jump, high jump, and belly flop add some complexity to movement. In comparison I started rushing through the first game getting most crates but not bothered if I missed anything. This time around I got all five colored gems and ended at 23/42 of the bonus gems as I did a bunch of optional stuff as I went through. I don't want to get the relics, otherwise I'd consider getting the platinum.

I'll claim this post for myself.

I normally manage to beat about 50 games a year, when I am not addicted to something. Previously it was Street Fighter and now it is Warframe, so we'll have to see how I manage. But 'favorites' in the Steam client is currently filled to the brink with stuff I want to get started on or have played a bit off, almost 50 entries in fact, so my first goal will be to get that down to a more reasonable number by knocking off the games that I have already gotten far in.

Knurek Am I updating my post the right way?
completionist.me

Also, looks good to me.
I don't have any set goals for this year, is that OK? I'll just update my original post with the stuff I've been playing or finishing, which theoretically might be a lot but certainly won't.
This is Meta, not ERA, everything you do here is OK.
Heck, some things, like bullying Lashman, are downright encouraged

My set goal seems low compared to others but if you see my post on Era...

I can't participate. I did jack shit in 2018. Thanks Rainbow Six. orz

My GotY is Girls Und Panzer: Dream Tank Match which sadly never made it to PC.
Never finished AssCreed Odyssey yet, even after 100 hours. I did finish Shadow of the Tomb Raider but... eh.
Also finished Tiny Metal, and Bullet Witch.

2018 was... not a good year for me.
Yeah. I absolutely sucked last year. So for 2019 I wanted to set a moderate goal and in 2020 if things go well I can set a higher goal!

I always wanted to try this but 52 games a year seemed a little too much for me. I'll go with 100%ing a game a month for now. Maybe I should bump that up to one every two weeks, but I've got a lot of long rpgs i wanna get through.

2019



1. Kolumno (100%) - Fun little puzzle reaction sort of game. Drop a ball from the top of the column to the bottom avoiding the obstacles and using the various abilities in the right places.

2. Hello! Pollution - A strange combination of the board game Operation and underground rubbish Tetris. Decent fun but pricey for what it is.

3. Chuchel - Absolutely delightful adventure puzzle game. Set around a series of vignettes of the titular characters attempt to retrieve a stolen cherry. Part 1980s foreign language claymation made for kids, part Terry Gilliam fevered dream.

4. Repairbot. - Meh/10. Lots of potential but the game feels half done, like EA. Needs more levels, variation etc...

5. Momonga Pinball Adventures - Fun, cute but terrible pinball. I'm not expecting Pinball Arcade/FX3 but when pinball is the central mechanism, it really needs to be better than this.

6. Call of Duty: Ghosts - Fun campaign, doggo, auto-aim is a little out of control, very easy. The story is pretty good for a CoD but is ruined completely in the last seconds.

(1/13) Beat both Nier and Yakuza. Incredible games, both of them (Nier had more interesting things to say but Yakuza was rock-solid and had a really exciting finale). I also played Life is Strange 2 Episode 1 on Game Pass, which I enjoyed, except

the character of Brody, who was a white savior, too convenient, or a pedophile.

Now I'm just biding my time, trying to play short things before Kingdom Hearts...

- - -

Current goal: Yakuza 0 and Nier: A finished by the end of January 13, 2019. (That's the day I go back to work.) Then I want to really focus on the games I buy rather than hopping from game to game. First up is Kingdom Hearts III, which like Yakuza is a story about guys being pals. I love stories about guys being pals.

I'll set a goal of 20, because 52 is way too much videogaming. 2018 was a heavy gaming year for me and I still only hit about 36 games. I expect to play less this year, so 20 seems a decent threshold.

1/20

1. Mark of the Ninja: Remastered

No way I'll finish 52 games this year but I keep forgetting what I played.
And it could help me become motivated.

January:
1. Battlefield Bad Company 2
2. Adr1ft
3. Capsized - uninstalled after trying
4. Cursed Castilla - uninstalled after trying
5. Braid - uninstalled after trying
6. Battleblock Theater - played an hour

Aw hell. I might as well claim this one. I'll probably forget about it, maybe.

So far

  1. Gears of War Ultimate Edition: I didn't really like the additions, that I guess were from the original PC release? Killed the pacing I felt, made the end of the game drag. Mainly played this for a story refresher for Gears 4.
  2. Gears of War 2:
  3. Gears of War 3
  4. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Finishing Grand Prix, Credits Rolled. It counts!)
  5. Super Smash Bros Ultimate (World of Light Cleared, all fighters unlocked): Great game, tons of content.
  6. Doki Doki Literature Club: Probably should have played this forever ago, it was amazing.
  7. Gears of War 4: Outside of Judgement, which I couldn't finish because I found it terrible, this is one boring ass video game with a terrible ending and a disappointing overall story. I really hope Gears 5 is better.
  8. Halo Reach: Mainly a Chronological run for a story refresher for Halo 4 and 5. Not doing the Halo Wars games in order with this, although I do plan to play them.
  9. Halo CE Anniversary: Still a great game, just looks better.
  10. Halo 2 Anniversary: Those new cutscenes are nuts.
  11. Onimusha Warlords: First time playing this, was freaking amazing.

I decided to play some of my shortest games to beat... Stickman Wars... I have no idea what I did or what was going on. I have no idea how I got all 33 Achievements. I feel cheap. Wait, I'm fine with feeling cheap. What a pile of garbage. Me? Yeah! No, the game is garbage! Wait, I just opened a Russian, meme, clicky Achievement game. I hate myself. Garbage! (I am!) How does this have a Very Positive rating?

Fight'n Rage is the first game I finished in 2019.

Started: 01/01/2019
Finished: 01/05/2019
Total Playtime: 1.7h

It heavily inspired by Streets of Rage and features initially 3 characters just like SoR. The plot revolves around a war between humans and mutants and you're going to end this conflict! It's very generic but I don't know anyone who plays beat'em ups for the story. The gameplay is very fluid, and uses a 3 button layout with them being attack, jump and special attack and in this is where the game really shines. There seems to be different kind of attacks combinations that can make you extend a combo for a ridiculous amount of hits.

It also has different endings for each character and different paths to choose in some levels. I plan to play more of it in the future.

Alright, now that I won't merge with my reserved post:

Only game I've beat so far is Bury me, my Love which I finished on the first. It took a few days with the game giving you a chance to make choices every few hours. Otherwise I've mostly been playing Dragon Quest XI and jumping between a few puzzle games. Intending to get to one or two 2018 games before GOTY voting but I'll see how that goes.

I managed to finish 62 games in 2018 after 69 in 2017 so I'm hoping I'll get through around 60 again this year.

Oh, I guess I did sort of finish something else with completing all the bonus levels and the achievements for them in Picrastination but I'm not going to count that as 2018 game.

If I revisit Superflight and snag more Achievements, does it count for 2019? 🤔
It always depends on what your purpose counting is.

I do things like this for backlog clearing. So I don't count replays, unless a replay is specifically part of my backlog for a weird reason (e.g., I've been planning to get a platinum trophy and need a third playthrough played in a specific way to get it).

But if you're just counting to accumulate numbers, who cares!

So this is really as good as people said?
Buy new games.

Play no games.
I prefer the other old classic:

Buy new games

Play same old games.

It's kind of an amazing experience for being a visual novel in essence told through text messages. The hook is the "real time" factor which means you're forced to stew on your decisions and hope that when you get a new message it's a positive one. It does a great job of making you anxious waiting for a text like you do in real life waiting to hear if results are good or bad from a friend or loved one.

Oh yeah, absolutely. It's a fantastic game, with a story that manages to be a mixture of scary, funny, worrisome and hopeful. I also agree with what was mentioned by Wibblewozzer it works really well on mobile where you're waiting responses while going about your day as the character in the game would be.

PUZZLE: CATS & DOGS is my second game this year. It's about as good as you'd expect but some of the cats and dogs were cute.

La Rana is the second game I've finished in 2019.

Started: 01/09/2019
Finished: 01/09/2019
Total Playtime: 23 minutes

La Rana is a short game made by students telling the story of two deities and the quest of this cute little frog to make rain again. The puzzles were pretty simple and very straight forward, though I won't expect anything very intricate from students who are most likely doing their first project.

Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas is the third game I've finished in 2019

Started: 01/01/2019
Finished: 01/11/2019
Total Playtime: 11:46:44

As I already said in my previous post about this game it's a Zelda clone launched first on mobile and later for PC and consoles. It kind of looks dated, the controls are clunky, I didn't like some design decisions (I can only roll and jump small gaps if my boot is equipped, seriously?) but I can't say I had a negative experience with this game.

All the dungeons were pretty short and very much straight forward and sailing between the islands is an automated process, you just choose your destination and shoot whatever is in your way to reach it safely.

The ending fight was very strange as I defeated the boss accidentally.
