2017 games year in review

This was.. not a great year for me in terms of games. I started a large number of them, but didn’t finish very many thanks to just not feeling like I had the time or energy to do so. I did complete a few more 100% achievements on Steam, with a few other games getting close to it, and I’ll probably try to keep that going.

An outstanding exception to this, however, was Pyre from Supergiant Games. I’m utterly in love with Supergiant and Pyre was no exception. Darren Korb’s soundtrack with Ashley Barret’s vocals continue to deliver, the plot was fascinating, the mechanics of the game’s plot branching so heavily was incredibly well done, and I have to also give them a shoutout for allowing a non-binary lead character. The game felt good.

I beat Kirby Star Stacker again, which was a nice little throw back to ages past. Same with going fairly far through other old favorites, like Misadventures of Tron Bonne or Kirby’s Adventure.

Mini Metro is a great little tablet puzzle game that I spent a decent amount of time in waiting rooms playing. It’s been taken over since by Disgaea 5 on my Switch, but that’s not its fault. Feel the Snow is a more forgiving Don’t Starve that I’ve enjoyed my time with so far and expect to actually attempt to complete in 2018.

I did get back into tabletop, though, with both a wonderful 2e DND campaign and Vampire campaign. The homebrew system for Vampire that we were playing with had a wonderful clan trait for the Malkavians–I couldn’t speak/act out of character during a sesion. Other characters responded accordingly to it every time I did, and it made for so much less ableist of a game that I would heartily recommend it for anyone running Vampire.
