Goals for 2020: continue being at least as responsible as last year. :) I am happy with my 2019 progress so I’ll continue treating my backlog the same way as last year; try to only buy games I want to play really soon, prioritise gifts and other wins when deciding what to play, try to participate in as many monthly themes as possible, and most importantly enjoy playing games and not force myself with games that feel like a chore. I can’t fix my “bad” buying/gaming habits from years ago, but I can continue being responsible going forward.


Favourite games I played in 2019:

  • Assassin’s Creed Odyssey - My favourite AC game, I loved everything about it and really like the direction Ubisoft are taking with the new games in the series.
  • Baba is You - Innovative puzzle game. Sometimes a bit frustrating in the best way possible.
  • Forza Horizon 4 - More fun than it has the right to be!
  • GRIS - Wow! Fun platformer that’s soooo so so stylish! Still amazed by how beautiful every level was.
  • HITMAN - First Hitman game I ever played and I enjoyed it more than I expected. Shame it’s a bit short.
  • Lost Ember - My favourite game in this genre. An absolutely gorgeous and enjoyable gaming experience.
  • My Time At Portia - Started playing it on 15 January, had 47 hours in the game by the end of the month…
  • Oxygen Not Included - Bought it in August, had 72 hours in the game by the end of the month…
  • Planet Zoo - Loved playing Zoo Tycoon when I was younger, so this is exactly what I needed in my life!
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider - I love the new Tomb Raider games and this one wasn’t an exception.
  • The Outer Worlds - Interesting world and companions, enjoyable gameplay.

January theme - list of games

The monthly theme includes games that we most enjoyed playing in 2019. It doesn’t matter what the game’s release year is - what matters is that you played it in 2019 and enjoyed it so much that you would like to see other assassins experience it too. You can nominate up to 10 games. Feel free to also tell us why you liked these particular games, I’m sure a lot of us would love to hear why these games were special to you.

I would really really really appreciate it if you could include a “clean” list of games somewhere in your post. Please use this format to make skanda’s life easier. :)

```
* [Name of game 1](Steam store page link)
* [Name of game 2](Steam store page link)
* [Name of game 3](Steam store page link)
```

The list also includes the winners of the BLAEO Game Awards 2019.
