Kawika's Back Log & Finished Games of 2013

This year I decided that it might be fun to track how many level ups I would get in a year. The more i thought about it, the more I thought I could track other gaming statistics, such as, how many hours or did I complete the game. I told my buddy Keef about it who had a large back log and was looking for a way to make some real progress into taking it down. So I made this list and a spreadsheet to track all my data. I am not going to keep this platform specific and I will post only games I am currently playing or finished this year. I am also counting games I finished multiple times under games beaten this year.

Each game listed will have some comments, impressions, mini reviews or other notes to let the reader know was going on with regard to the game posted. I was trying to come up with silly ways to score the games after I completed them. I decided to score based on what I think you should do if you are reading this.

The scores are going to be broken down as follows:

Buy it: This is worth full retail price, if its on PC i am getting it on a steam deal so keep that in mind Rent it: Not the best, but worth playing. Rent it or buy it for cheap on Steam if possible. Skip it: Some games aren't worth your time or mine. Some games I will quit playing not because of dislike but mainly because something else caught my eye. If its unfinished, don't take that as a slight. I am easily distracted.

As of 12/31/2013

Games Finished: 23

Games Quit: 1

Total Number of Level Ups: 516

Total Number of Hours spent this year: 605

1/1/2014 Update:

What a great year of games. I didn't get to finish as many as I would have liked. AC4 was a lot longer than I had anticipated. I suppose I will have a lot of half finished games to finish in the next month or so. Thanks Phil Kollar for giving me the inspiration to make a game journal. I think I am going to do this every year.

Happy New Year Everyone
