I love video games. In fact, video games have been my greatest passion for as long as I can remember, really. Yet, despite that, my priorities seemed to shift from gaming to television and film for much of 2018. In many ways, video games kind of fell to the back-burner for the year. The fact that I was studying so much television and film in college throughout the year probably had something to do with that. Not that it’s a problem, really, but I would like to finish more video games in 2019 while continuing to enjoy television and film as much as I have as well.
Ultimately, I only finished 7 games in 2018, which is a pretty lousy number all in all. Obviously I played much more than that throughout the year, but for the sake of a brief recap, I will just list those few that I finished.
- Human: Fall Flat (PS4, 2016)
- Runbox: Deluxe Edition (Wii U, 2016)
- Rocket League (PS4, 2015)
- Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars (Wii, 2008)
- Chrono Trigger (SNES, 1995)
- Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon (3DS, 2013)
- Super Mario Party (Switch, 2018)
That being said, I’m pretty confident I can do better in 2019 and will strive to do so. But hey, I still played some gems this year. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, though late in the game, is easily my favorite of the year. Here’s to more experiences in 2019!
