Yesterday, I said ‘goodbye’ to 2017 by writing a post about the best game I played last year. Now, the time has become to welcome give the new year a proper welcome. What’s better than doing it by making a little LIST?
Let’s start with the simple part and draw a proper backlog of games I haven’t finished yet. Of course, the minimum to count it as finished is reaching at least one ending and publishing a proper Just Finished post.
In no particular order:
Sunless Sea (nope, 700 hours wasn’t enough)
WH40k: Space Marine
Volgarr The Viking
Fallout New Vegas (of course)
Verdun (it’s a multiplayer FPS so I’ll just get level 100 of experience and quit)
The Final Station
That’s it. Maybe I should start with the last two games because I’ve essentially finished them already and all that remains is writing damn end posts to get rid of them.
Then there are some games, mostly classics, I’m planning to try out – some of them already waiting in the limbo which is my Steam library.
1979 Revolution: Black Friday
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
Max Payne 3
This War Of Mine
Wings! Remastered Edition
So much for the list. My most important goal, however, is to completely change my attitude as a player, just as I mentioned in one of the Creative Christmas posts. I seriously need it to become less competitive, focused on score and achievements, and more reflective, enjoying the plot, characters, mechanics, visuals, and so on. Hopefully, the new approach will allow me to appreciate and enjoy games more, maybe take a new, broader perspective, and therefore become a better player. Quite exciting and so much to look forward to in the new year.
