As a kid I would often try my hardest to wring as many hours out of games as possible, especially if I liked them, replaying them/going for achievements/just plain messing around to my heart's content. That said, even at the time I usually just played what I was interested in rather than specifically thinking "Wow! This game is 200 hours I can play it forever!" or some similar idea.

Especially nowadays, the longer the game the less likely I am to actually play it. I still don't go for the idea of needing [x] many hours out of a game, and actively steer away from series that I perceive as "long for sheer length's sake", even if I still turn around and dump a hundred hours into something completely random. But at the same time, a lot of the more time-expectant games that have caught my eye end up sitting in my Steam library for months before I bother to open them, and even then I'll sometimes start them, get a ways in, and never finish them despite enjoying myself.

I think there's something to be said for games that take their time because they have somewhere to go with it, but in the past few years a lot of my favorite experiences with games have been more "bite-sized" games no longer than five hours to play through. I feel like a good percentage of games could benefit from redirecting themself towards a more compact experience like that, if it weren't currently difficult because of how games are tangled up in weird player expectations of "time per dollar" and the marketing traditions of the past that make some people view headlines like "500 hours long" as exciting instead of terrifying.

Cheers as always.

-Add aliases Dr. Cat and Felorin to David Shapiro

Aliases used by Shapiro at various points, most notably as a map easter egg in Caverns of Freitag and among the furry community as a developer on Furcadia.

-Add alias Yo-Kai Watch PuniPuni to Yo-Kai Watch Wibble Wobble.

Japanese title.

-Delete Yo-Kai Watch PuniPnui

Duplicate of Yo-Kai Watch Wibble Wobble.

-Delete fabel ii

My best guess is this was meant to refer to Fable II.

-Delete Combat Royale (?)

What's the wiki stance on Roblox games having their own entries?

Sometimes you just gotta add something to a list twice. I can see why it'd be a hassle, but I genuinely prefer having the option over not.

@juulcat: Not at all! The actual text of your comment still had the game names, and the images were still present under each game's images section, so it wasn't too much of an issue.

@juulcat: Only one of these links actually works, but I found the intended pages and added the proper game images.

I went ahead and added an entry for the expansion under Splatoon 2's DLC section, although like Lego said you're still welcome to edit the wiki if you think of anything else it's missing.

I haven't made lists since 2011, nor is my memory great, so some of these are semi-snap decisions, but-

2011 - Portal 2 (One of the first games I bought on my own dime and I did not regret a single penny)

2012 - Dishonored

2013 - FFXIV: A Realm Reborn (Few games have a world so casually inviting and homely as this, the best FF game.)

2014 - Tales from the Borderlands

2015 - Undertale (Undertale feels like such a distinct moment in time for everyone I know, a definite GotD contender)

2016 - Hitman (Though it's a close call with like three other games)

2017 - Night in the Woods

2018 - Tetris Effect (If Undertale isn't my GotD, Tetris Effect might just be. It's hard to quite describe what I felt my first play-through of this game, and its a feeling that still lingers with every subsequent play-through.)

2019 - Shovel Knight: King of Cards

2020 - Umurangi Generation

2021 - Currently leaning towards Deltarune Chapter 2
