A Year of Backlog Fight in Review
This year’s report, mostly made of a slice of stats and a slice of eye candy of my favourite games I’ve played last year, in no particular order. Actually if I had to only get a Top 3, I would have cut it down to Hades, Spiritfarer and Wintermoor Tactics Club, with a special extra spot for Animal Crossing, the perfect game to play when you can’t actually wander outside. But anyway, all the games in that Top 15 deserve their place. 2020 was a crappy year in general but a great year gaming wise, and I didn’t even have time to play/finish all I would have wanted. Happy New Year to all of you and I wish you a much better 2021, even if it starts as a mess, it has room to grow better.
Despite the progress not looking too spectacular, I'm still ok with it. The second group progress only looks "bad" because I've made some changes to it, split it in two and some games were moved to a separate list in which everything got played. It's just hard to reflect it in the visual stats result, but I'm okay with it. I still plan to try and do better with it in 2021.
Progress in 2019
Won on SteamGifts
Jan 1st (165 games) vs Dec 31th 2020 (173 games)
Gifts & Other Wins
Jan 1st (376 games) vs Dec 31th 2020 (395 games)
More or less the previous year's plans but I'm considering adding some sort of bingo card inspired by this event.
Other than that, one of my massive decision for 2021 was to take a break and stop playing Gems of War for the time being. Not only I was feeling a burnout to play it daily (you know how those free to play with daily tasks go) but also I put a crazy amount of time into it (not reflected in the steam hours count because I mostly played it on the tablet, but I probably passed a thousand hours on it) that took away from the other backlog fight. We'll see how it goes.
