The Big List ’17

I (Kevin) have decided to keep a list of every video game I’ve played or went on to complete between November 2016 – when I started working on getting this blog going – and December 2017. Why this would be of interest to anyone besides myself, I do not know. I just want to have a resource to look back on that may confirm my belief that I’m abandoning more games than ever. In 2016 I lost my passion for video games and stopped drawing enjoyment from my once favourite past time. Now that I’m slowly starting to regain the love of games I feared I was losing forever, I hope that keeping this list will help me better understand my gaming habits and what kind of games I tend to stick with.

Anyways, I’ll be updating the list throughout the next year, sorting each game under one of three headings: Currently playing, Played and Completed. Pretty self-explanatory, right? For a game to be placed on the list, I’m imposing a rule that I must have played it for at least one hour. If I have finished a game’s campaign/story/single player, but continue to play it in some way, it will still be placed under the “completed” heading. So, without further ado here is the list so far:
