In the spirit of Giant Bomb Game of the Year time, and hearing members of the crew sweat the feeling to at least dabble in everything:
To fill in anyone new here I suppose, Giant Bomb has a feature on your profile for making a "List". In recent years (maybe longer), its been encouraged to write up your own and, at the end of the year or early next year, someone might pull that data from all the lists and essentially make a community voted GB Game of the Year list. Before this, there is often a thread where members post links to their lists and people can read and discuss, which is what I find most intriguing.
I've been a fan of the the GB Community GOTY list since I first tried it some years ago. To my surprise, I found it to be a rather fun and thoughtful exercise (even though I don't like to write) reflecting back on the year. Not even for specific games themselves but anything I did related to gaming. At this point I also just include old games in my list because it's the first time I've ever played it, or sometimes it's left over from last years backlog etc.
At the time of this posting, I'm somewhat actively playing Gran Turismo Sport and trying to refine my thoughts. I've actually fired up Forza Motorsport 6 (which I barely played and was disappointed with, also the last FM I own) and I want to play a little more Project CARS 2, both for reference material. PC2 I bought, played a little of with and without VR, but got distracted on a real car project and just didn't come back to PC2.
I've also got Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together sitting here on my Vita. I finally forced myself to start it, dig in, and I've been slowly playing it for the last 6 months or so, and I've got about 75 hours on my save. To put it plainly, it's been mostly a game for the "throne room", but I'd really like to finish it up before the end of the year, except I have no idea how far along I am. Anyone know how close the "Hanging Gardens" is to the end?
I also dipped back into Minecraft for a week after years away. So much potential in that game but I still feel like it isn't there. Particularly with mods. So I wanted to record a little video showing off my work and maybe touching on why I find mods frustrating. It's also a way for me to immortalize what I built as inevitably I'll do a hard drive wipe and it will be gone. Haven't found the enthusiasm to record something though. Feel like a dork doing it.
So what are you working on? Anyone cramming in a bunch of games this weekend?
