In 2018 I had a hard time keeping up with games in general which meant very few games were actually finished.  Honestly, with the amount of things going on I think I’m going to change the focus away from fully finishing a game to simply enjoying it.  Hence I’m going to update this page to list games that I’ve played this year and games that I’ve actually completed in this year.  A few quick definitions are in order.  A game will count as being played after I’ve spent at least two hours playing the game, much like Steam’s return policy.  If I’ve played it for at least this amount of time then I should have a basic sense of the game.  Games finished also is a little more nuanced than a simple completion of a game.  Due to the fact that some games are technically never-ending, online affairs or have copious amounts of DLC that in some cases extend the gameplay and in others modifies it, I’m simply going to use “finished” as accomoplishing a goal that I’m proud of within the game.

  • Diablo 3: Season 16 – Completed the four chapters with a Seasonal Wizard
  • Far Cry: New Dawn – Complete all main story missions.  Think I missed a few Treasure Hunts
  • Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel – True Vault Hunter Mode
  • Division 2: Finished the main story.  Reached max level.  Entered World Tier 1.
  • Batman: Arkham Knight.  Finished the main story and everything except Riddler trophies.  I don’t have time for a collectible hunt like that when the ending unlocked by it is available on YouTube.

The moral of the story here is that trying to game with five kids and a full time job can be… challenging.
