My very late 2020 report!
(also happy New Year!)
2020 sucked, I think we can mostly agree. I actually did awful in my backlog slaying. Just didn’t feel up to gaming this year. I played mostly multiplayer games like Phasmophobia and Overwatch. I also started a bunch of games that I haven’t finished. I am feeling motivated again though and I have so many games I’m excited to play. I’ve collected a nice list of anticipated games. Since I’ve only completed one game this month, I’d rather just display my stats and favorite games this year! Hope everyone has a much better 2021.
sadly my video game playing has been on a decline since I joined the site. In 2017 I beat 108 games. In 2018 I beat 61 games. In 2019 it was 42 games. This year in 2020 I beat 30 steam games. (not including the games I beat on itch.io) I’m feeling optimistic this year though, so hopefully I can at least beat 2019s record!
Here are some of my 2020 stats!
Favorite game(s) beaten this year: Disco Elysium and Mass Effect
Runner Ups: Firewatch and Higurashi Ch 7
Least Favorite Game: Starting the Game
Favorite Multiplayer: Phasmophobia
Most surprising game (by how good it was) Doorkickers: Action Squad
Most hours put into a game: Fallout 4 (77 hours)
Biggest Disappointment: Magicka 2
Most played genre this year: Horror, action
See you guys again soon!
Thanks for reading! I had a lot of fun with the horror theme. I haven’t been updating regularly but I hope to start again soon. What is the scariest horror game you’ve ever played?
I’ve been working on Death Stranding but that’s going to take ages to finish. I’ve already finished Simulacra but I’m trying to find other endings. Other then that who knows, I have a huge list of next games to choose from and I’m excited for all of them.
I’m still working on those itchio games, but I have so many great steam games that I’ll have to mix it up!

Tackling the Itch.io Equality bundle (Batch #1)
Hi guys. I had this (not so brilliant) plan to try all the games in the “racial justice and equality” bundle.I wanted to do this because people kept pointing out the obvious good games in the mix, but I wanted to see if there were less obvious hidden gems. I put all the games on a spreadsheet (excluding tabletop games) and then used a random number generator to pick games for me. This has lead to some.. interesting results. If I didn’t like a game I usually gave up on it very quickly, so the reviews are just of games I played a lot of or completed. Some are also on steam in case you didnt’ buy the bundle so I’ll make sure I list those. Overall, I’m having fun randomly playing games so I hope you enjoy the reviews!
red = bad!
green = “meh”
purple = good!
also on steam!
Itchio only games!
Thanks for reading! I’ll soon have an update with the actual steam games I played. As a thank you to this community and a father’s day gift, here’s a little giveaway
Quarantine Game Binging Update!
This was originally called “May Update” but since I didn’t play these all in May I changed the name. Every day blends in these days and games are what keeps me sane. Thank goodness I found some really good ones!
Here are some more games I’m playing right now. Mostly with friends. Times are tough but I hope you guys are doing okay.
End of March Update!
This update is a little early, but I don’t see myself making another big update until next month. My job is closed down so the only upside is that I got to play some wonderful games.
Here’s some games I plan to play next!
Life is Strange 2
Super Bit Blaster XL
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy / 逆転裁判123 成歩堂セレクション
Ori and the Will of the Wisps
Well it’s been a good minute since I actually beat a game, but I’m getting back on track! It’s been a good month. My anniversary with my boyfriend just passed and my birthday is coming up. So I decided to celebrate by playing some games I’ve been looking forward to. I also beat Breath of the Wild on the Switch, which took most of my time. I won’t review it cause it’s not on steam, but it’s really good. If you’re interested then of course play it!
here’s some games I (might) be playing next time. If you have any recommendations for which one to play next then let me know!
2019 Wrap Up!
A lot of things happened this year which is both good and bad. Good, because now I have more things happening in my real life, bad because my backlog is taking a big hit! In 2017 I beat 115 games. In 2018 I beat 67 games. This year it continued to decline with 42 games beat.
Here are my End of the Year stats!
Top Five Games Beaten This Year! (not in a specific order)
Higurashi When They Cry Hou - Ch.3 Tatarigoroshi
Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc
The House in Fata Morgana
Portal 2 was a no brainer. The puzzles were well done, I loved the humor and characters, and the co-op was a lot of fun! Rogue Legacy is on the list because I am not a fan of rogue-lites but it warmed its way into my heart. When my computer was broken, it was the only game I could really play, and after playing enough to be able to beat foes, I was hooked! The next three are a surprise to me. I have trouble getting into VN’s but these three were fantastic. The entire Higurashi and Danganronpa series (haven’t played 3 yet) are in the top. Loved them both for seperate reasons. Then The House of Fate Morgana, because of course, its also fantastic!
Most Hours played in a game this Year
- Dead By Daylight:729 hours (273 hours this year. The rest is from last year)
- Kingdom Come Deliverance: 60 hours
Hidden Gems I didn’t expect to be so good
Favorite BLAEO theme this year
Overall 2019 had it’s ups and downs like every year. I didnt beat a lot of games, but the ones I did were actually really good. I couldn’t even find enough games to make a “worst games” list. I had a lot of fun reading all your reviews and I can’t believe I’ve been on this site since 2017! I’m so glad I joined this group and I hope you guys have an amazing New Year!
November - December Update!
I haven’t done a lot of gaming due to work, holidays, etc, so here’s a small post of my (small) progress.
These are the games I plan on buying before the sale ends, so I’ll be playing some of these next!
