I just wanted to wish everyone a happy new year, and let you know that I’ll be publishing some sort of “game of the year” list later today. I haven’t spent as much time playing video games in 2016 as I would have liked (or it might be more accurate to say that I started a lot of games and finished very few, going back to 2015). I’ve started Final Fantasy XV, Watch Dogs 2, Dead Rising 4, Titanfall 2, Battlefield 1, and so on, and feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface of any of them. I have some serious gaming ADD. I put about four hours into Final Fantasy, and would like to play more, but I keep getting distracted. Speaking of Final Fantasy, I was ecstatic to learn that World of Final Fantasy was out for the Vita, but only put about two hours into it before never touching it again. I played the opening of Watch Dogs 2 and it seems to be an interesting game, but I need to get back to it. With all this said, my game of the year list will prove incredibly difficult to craft. This year will probably be my sloppiest list to date, and I’m sure that once I sink more time into some of 2016’s games my list will look entirely different. Maybe I can come back and revise the list in a month or two, but for now I’d like to at least post the games I’ve enjoyed most in 2016.
For now, I’m off to the gym for my first workout of 2017 (let it be known I’ve been going to the gym for months, I’m not one for resolutions) so I hope you all have a good morning and a great start to 2017!
