Games I Finished In 2016
The third annual list of video games I finished in a given year. I'll toss ya some links to the previous years lists:
I don't think I'll surpass the total of 108 games that I managed to finish last year so I'm not going to try! I'll be satisfied if I manage to finish at least 45 games by the time 2017 rolls around.
I chose the number 45 because it just might be my favorite multiple of 9. The number 9 is my favorite number due to the fact that if you add all the digits in a multiple of 9 until you get a single digit, you'll always end up with the number 9! Coincidentally, 2016 is also a multiple of 9 and so is 108!
Going to try and add times here wherever possible because stats are fun!
EDIT: Finally finished my goal of 45 games on November 22nd! Got 'em all in before Thanksgiving and December, the time of the year where I am least likely to be in a position to play and finish video games! It also gives me some time to fill in a lot of the empty space on each entry that I said I'd fill in before I start gearing up for Game of the Year stuff.
EDIT: Here's some games (non-commercial/jam games) that aren't in the wiki that I also finished this year. I'm not going to count these as part of the 45.
Game wherein you play as a germ and eat things and grow so that you can eat more things. I always appreciate games where you do a thing to become bigger thing such as Katamari Damacy or Feeding Frenzy. Germ isn't quite like the games I mentioned but it certainly does have that sort of spirit to it. I really like the art-style and the fact that you can mess with the decorations that exist outside the area of play. The music is also pretty rad! Made by the same person who is working on the music for Burrito Galaxy 65 which also seems pretty rad.
A platformer where you must manipulate the boundaries of the games display window to finish levels. It was made for a Ludum Dare game jam but I can't remember the theme off the top of my head. Regardless, the game has such a novel concept that I had to try it once I heard about it. The execution on said concept is actually pretty well done too, even the forced scrolling levels manage to be pretty cool in this game. If it interests you at all I suggest you check it out!
Wish Project (Completed 06/22) Time to Completion: ~40 mins
I actually don't remember much about this game other than the fact that it's a vertical bullet hell shooter.
