this is more of a "games i got this year" list, rather than "games i purchased"

List items

  • PC. Jan 1st. steam sale! i was waiting for it to go down in price for me to nab it. 3 dollars!

  • PC. Jan 1st. IT WAS ON SALE PLUS KILLING FLOOR IS AWESOME

  • PC. Jan 1st. i dont think this will work on my pc

  • PC. Jan 1st. it was on sale i thought the trial was crazy addictive so i bought it. --- DS. Feb 16th. it was 20$ so yo why not

  • PC. Jan 8th. gifted by onimonkii on steam. thank you so much! good lookin' out, bro

  • DS. Jan 17th. went to my local wal mart (first visit since i moved) and saw this for 14.99 new so i was all "that's too good of an offer to refuse". blind purchase, since i have no idea what this game even is apart from an RPG. Ajay, you're too much of a genius.

  • 360. Feb 3rd. "Complete Edition". i was killing time, waiting for a dentist appointment and i saw it for 20$ so i was all "yes". besides, since there's no games i want until Killzone 3 %26 Dead or Alive Dimensions, i might as well catch up on games i've missed.

  • 3DS. Feb 17th. pre order. yep 3d stuff and even though the launch lineup looks like ajldakjdlkdjlk, i kind of paid 280$ just to play DOA:Dimensions (minus the game itself)

  • PS3. Feb 22nd. there's nothing better than blasting some helghast

  • Feb 25th. our old PS2 was shit because it was modded and it fucked up so we got a new one. this is our third PS2 i think. now i can play DRIV3R in peace without any loading problems and i can finally finish Yakuza 2 YEAH

  • PS2. Feb 26th. we're buying all the games that we loved since well, modded PS2 so we can't really play any of the old discs we have. HMMM.. NICE BIKE.

  • PS2. Feb 26th. same as above

  • PS3. March 3rd. KIRYU

  • PC. March 10th. not a purchase, but a kind donation from M_33 or m33td3th or whatever because of crazy smasher kid. man i don't see this turning out well at all

  • 3DS. March 16th. pre order. WOO DOA! i finally found a place that has 3DS games for pre order. they didn't have SSFIV3DS so i just went ahead and pre ordered DOA:D.

  • PS2. March 25th. bro came home with it. oh man this game used to be the shit. FIYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH

  • 3DS. March 27th. DOA Dimensions was delayed so i needed a launch game. K.O.!!!!!!!!!

  • PS2. April 5th. i was innocently browsing the EB games PS2 shelf and i saw this for 1.99 and i could not resist. impulse purchases are the worst. apparently it's impossible to finish, but i won't take defeat!

  • PS3. April 11th. pre order. so i was thinking about what game i was going to buy next, and then i realized that Mortal Kombat was coming out in about a week so i went ahead and blew my Yakuza 4 money on a MK9 pre order. i regret nothing!

  • PC. April 12th. thank you OwnlyUzinWonHan for the Steam gift!! i'm very grateful!

  • 360. April 29th. impulse purchase. i was just sitting around and i thought that playing Ninja Gaiden ii would be pretty cool, so i bought it for 17.99$. considering i kind of own an almost completely superior port (Sigma 2), i have no idea why i bought this but hey, let's see if i'll regret it by the end of the year.

  • PS2. May 14th. i started MGS2 substance and my copy stopped working (defective) so i didn't get to finish it. ugh, right as i was starting to really enjoy it. finally got around to getting a copy. maybe now i can finish it AND PLAY MGS4 which has been sitting on my shelf since 2008, unplayed by me?!

  • PS2. May 14th. this game was so much fun in the multiplayer. good to have this one again!

  • DS. May 19th. i'm going on a trip and i needed a game to play in case i got bored. with the 3DS' pretty bad launch, and no interesting games in sight (DOA DIMENSIONS NEXT WEEK!!!), i decided to purchase a cheap DS game. i totally forgot a DS version of Trackmania (with all four environments AND A TRACK EDITOR!!) existed since it's release. portable Trackmania doesn't seem bad at all.

  • DS. May 21st. i've always apperciated the Cooking Mama games from a distance. i've never played any of them but i always wanted to try it. i bought it for 12.99$ with the cart alone at a GameStop in NY, and i'm really liking it, apart from some odd touch screen games (the peeling ><). i could have probably used the manual :\

  • DS. May 21th. picked this up w/out box and manual for 12.99 at the same GameStop. i really like the Metal Slug games and this one seemed like a steal for the price i got it for. i kind of wish i got the cool box sleeve and stuff that it usually comes with. some questionable game design decisions aside (they don't surprise me), it's a lot of fun.

  • 360. May 24th. i really liked the demo, and i really like Vin Diesel. it's also supposed to be like DRIV3R sort of. yep, sold.

  • 360. ordered on May 29th. arrived June 8th. birthday gift. oh christ. i don't know how this is going to end.

  • PS3. June 4th. part of Sony's welcome back program. as an admirer of the Wipeout series, i'm super excited to see this title for a free download w/ Fury. i've only played the PSP games and those were pretty good, but i've always wanted to play Wipeout HD from the time of it's release. i never got around to buying it, but now it's free of charge!

  • PS3. June 4th. a birthday gift from my brother. it looked really interesting, but much like Rockstar's big release from last year, Red Dead Redemption, i have a feeling that i won't really enjoy this one. i'm hoping for the best, though.

  • 3DS. June 7th. a complimentary item from the 3DSware shop. sure, i'll take some excitebike any day.

  • 360. June 8th. yea, okay. i bought this game last year, but this is the GOTY edition. i originally planned to sell my original Fallout 3 for this, but i saw it for cheap and my friend was borrowing my copy for about a year. whatever. at least i'll get to continue Fallout again. my life is now over.

  • 360. June 17th. i loved Rez, so i'm ready. bring it, Miz!

  • PC. July 3rd. steam sale! i was waiting for this one to go on sale. 3 dollars? can't pass that up!

  • PC. July 3rd. part of the "Serious Sam Gold Pack" on steam. the original games weren't standalone so i bought Serious sam 1 and 2, along with the HD games which don't work on my computer. i've been waiting so long for this one to go on sale! 13 dollars for 4 games!

  • PC. July 3rd. see above.

  • 360. July 6th. EDF! EDF! EDF!

  • PC. July 6th. gifted by damswedon out of nowhere. thanks, dude !

  • PC. July 7th. this game is fucking stupid and unexciting but i remember liking the demo and the Steam Sale strikes again, pricing it at 1.49$. dammit.

  • PC. July 8th. i really love Worms. one of the best party games, and it finally went on sale so i nabbed it! also gifted it to TehFedro because worms is always better with a friend

  • PC. July 9th. 2.49$! i'm glad i waited

  • PS2. July 12th. continuing the crazy trend of buying games at a super low price. i really wanted this one back when i was really into wrestling games. nabbed it for 99 cents! for the crazy amount of customization in this game, it's best deal ever.

  • PC. July 17th. this and Breath of Death VII were on sale for 2.69$ or something in a pack so i decided to buy it. TehFedro brought it to my attention and it's supposed to be funny and entertaining, as well as a fun RPG. i haven't finished FFIV yet, but i hope i'll get around to this one.

  • PC. July 17th. this and Cthulhu Saves The World were on sale for 2.69$ or something in a pack so i decided to buy it. TehFedro brought it to my attention and it's supposed to be funny and entertaining, as well as a fun RPG. i haven't finished FFIV yet, but i hope i'll get around to this one.

  • PS3. July 25th. couldn't find 1 + 2 anywhere, so i guess this is my entry point for the series. dude at the cash was stoked that i bought it, so i hope i can get into it!

  • PS2. July 28th. saw it for 1.99 when paying off Disgaea 4 and couldn't pass it up. this was one of my all time favorite PS2 games, so i'm glad to have it again. i still have my old save on my PS2 memory card. effin' rad.

  • 360. XBLA "Xbox Originals". December 28th. considering that i'm in the middle of some Ninja Gaiden craze, i might as well check out what fans might consider the best in the series, as well as one of the best games of all time.
