The Games I Completed In 2012

In 2011, I completed 70 games. The blog I wrote listed 69 games, but I managed to finish L.A. Noire on December 31 with just two hours left before ringing in the New Year.

In 2012, my total is far lower than I expected it to be. I’m probably missing a few games, but I believe I finished 48 games last year. The birth of my first child obviously led to me having far less time to game. I also feel that 2012 didn’t have as many “must-play” titles that kept me up late into the night.

There’s another factor at play here, too. Many of the games I play on iOS don’t have a defined conclusion. The same could be said of sports games like MLB 12: The Show, but winning the World Series or being awarded the American League MVP in Road to the Show are conclusions of sorts. Should games I obsessed over like Temple Run and Madcoaster be added to my list? I don’t think so, but they are definitely worth mentioning given how much of my time they consumed.

The game I spent the most time with was Dragon’s Dogma. I played through it with a friend over the course of three months, and nearly completed a second playthrough by myself. That playthrough was completed on January 13, 2013.

I got a huge kick out of seeing all of the games you completed in 2011, and once again extend an invitation to all of you to jot down the games you finished in 2012 in the comments section below.
