I can't really make an exact count since there is no official list, but I think it's at least close to 75%. Especially since they talked about Puppeteer a lot and none of them had played that much of it (I played the demo). I think I'm as qualified as they are when it come to playing games that came out this year.
On my list of stuff I want to play and haven't gotten to yet is: Papers, please, Last of us, Brothers, and all next/now gen games and nintendo stuff. Really the only current gen stuff I want to play is resogun and dead rising. I do always love these lists cause I hear of stuff for the first time. So far sounddodger is something I've got to look into.
A lot of games that they talk about are games they've been talking about all year. Even though I've played very few games that they'll discuss, mainly any PC game as I don't have the proper hardware to play most PC games, I feel like I've watched them play most of these games to still enjoy the deliberation.
In years past I have played the majority of big games they would talk about. Was nice as it freed me from spoilers and gave me games to root for in their discussion. This year I have not so much done that. Today's categorys are going to be hurting. I don't want games like Last of Us and Gone Home spoiled but I will listen anyway, because who knows when I will get to them.
Not me. I really haven't played too many of the indie and smaller games this year yet. I'm usually pretty behind on those but then they start hitting big on stuff like Steam sales and I ended up getting them.
Kind of been this way for me a few times in the last couple years and last year it would have made a huge deal on my GOTY thoughts (with Hotline Miami for example, which was better than advertised to be through GOTY talk).
The only major thing I haven't finished is GTAV. Probably never will unless it comes to PC.
I'm in the same boat. I absolutely refuse to play it until it comes out on PC, PS4 or XBOne
It's going to come to PC at least.
Anyways, I loved it on 360 but it would be amazing looking on PC. It's only a matter of time.
It was maybe my best looking game of the year and I was a little dissapointed not to hear it brought up on GOTY. I think I'd probably just have to put Bioshock Infinite over it.
I'm typically about two years late when it comes to playing games, so hell no. I at least know what most of the games actually are this year though. I have plenty of spoilers to worry about though as I'm still working on Infinite and Tomb Raider and I'm still very far off from purchasing The Last Of Us.
The only thing I'm worried about being spoiled (which isn't even a story thing) is whatever "that one scene" is in DmC Devil May Cry that they were hinting at. Whatever "that one scene" is, I don't know, but from the way they talked about it, it sounds pretty incredible.
i bought a ton of games this year (not really AAA titles and not all released this year) but barely have completed any. it's a really bad problem. i think (one) of my new year's resolutions will be to clear the crap out of my backlog and not buy anymore damn games until then. :D
also i just started playing DmC and hell if isn't damn entertaining, regret not picking it up sooner.
Nope, not even close. I have to budget my game purchases, so i typically only get one game a month? sometimes skip a month, sometimes two games in one month. But yeah. There are a couple games i did not play but i can follow conversation about them. The Last of Us, i watched on youtube, some guy edited together all the gameplay and inventory stuff so it watched alot like a movie I also didnt play Bioshock Infinite but ive had that game so ruinously spoiled for me several times that i said screw it and just spoiled the rest for myself.
I could list off the games that i did and didn't play but i don't think anyone cares. But no, theres alot of games i didn't play but would like to. And alot of games that i look at and have no interest in.
I'm catching up now. I'm going through all of the games that have been critically acclaimed such as Papers, Please, The Stanley Parable, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, The Wolf Among Us and eventually Gone Home if there's a flash sale on it. I’m also getting my Xbox One in less than a few days from now so I’ll be playing exclusives on that. I have regrettably not played The Last of Us yet or Assassins Creed IV and I don’t own any Nintendo products so all discussions relating to that are beyond me.
I'm holding up pretty well in these podcasts so far though.
The fact that 2 out of 5 people here have played more than 75% (or somewhere around that) of the major and "important" games released this year is pretty impressive.
I'm quite surprised to be honest. Last year I've managed to play every top 10 games (the site list) and the feeling you get when listening to the deliberation podcast was something else. I missed that this year. Life just got in the way.
Not at all, to the point that I think I've only played Saint's Row IV this year. I've been mostly going through older games via mods or on GOG. Can't afford new consoles, can't afford most new retail games (or even slightly older retail games) and even games like Swapper, Paper's Please and Gone Home are just games I can't get.
Tell you what, though, it's been a great year for Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 3, Fallout 1, Civ V, Kentucky Route Zero, Arcanum, Chivalry and Under a Killing Moon.
