Games I Done Beat This Year, Reviewed


Games I Done Beat

There is a list of games on my backlog currently taped to my Wii U that stares at me as I write this. There are still six games on it that I haven't beaten, but I tried my darndest to get as many off the list as I could, while also adding new games to the list that I could cross off instantly so it feels like I accomplished more than I did. I beat a lot of dang games this year, so I want to show off in the least meaningful way possible: by writing a one-sentence review of each of them. These are all games that I've never beaten and it's in no particular order, so let's gogogogogogooooooooo

Far Cry 5

The only thing I remember is getting constantly kidnapped by people at the most inopportune moments. 3/5.

I don't even feel bad about using save states. 3/5.



All it needs is tanks. 5 dragons replacing jet fighters out of 5.

Dragon Quest XI


The second JRPG I've beaten and boy howdy am I going to wait before I do another. 4 adults that look like children out of 5.

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls


I don't understand the difficulty and I didn't die once because I had an invincible army of the dead. 3 fleshy boys out of 5.

Uncharted 4

I would let Troy Baker kiss me on the mouth. 5 kinda shitty brothers out of 5.

Divinity: Original Sin

I can't even joke about this game because it's a banger. 5 smelly panties out of 5.

The Legend of Zelda

Those armoured dicks can suck it. 4 Hot Topic shirts out of 5.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Honestly shocked that child me couldn't beat this. 5 exposed legs out of 5.

Colonialism is so much fun! 4 Indiana Jones knockoffs out of 5.

I wish I could wipe that hospital section from my mind. 4 sick beats out of 5.

How the fuck did someone make a good Sonic game? 4 genuinely touching fanfics out of 5.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (Switch)

Eagle Tower might actually be the worst Zelda dungeon. 4 hungry chain chomps out of 5.

Pilotwings (SNES)

The best use of Mode 7, I guess? 4 weirdly-placed gunship missions out of 5.

Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy

1 is pretty good but super frustrating, 2 is better but also somewhat frustating and 3 is actually great! 4 Oogadas out of 5.

Super Mario Maker 2

Stop blaming the unions for your own ineptitude, Chief. 4 levels that look like a dick out of 5.

The Outer Worlds

The best modern Fallout game. 5 sweet sayings from Parvati out of 5.

I only won by testing a nuke so I had enough money to get my last task done. 3 endless franchises out of 5.

Shovelknight: Spectre of Torment

Wake me up inside,
Call my name and save me from the dark,
Bid my blood undone,
Before I come undone,
Save me from the nothing I've become.
5 dark edgy boys out of 5

Shovel Knight: King of Cards

It was Marcus Aurelius that said: "This is a dope game and a good ending to the franchise; though overall not as strong as the original or Spectre of Torment, it really gets a good gameplay flow going on by the end with some incredibly designed levels". 4 dogs tackled to death out of 5.

And there you have it. Now I know that there is still a week left in the year, but I figured I won't beat anything in the meantime. Maybe I will. What I do know is that I beat some dang good games this year and that the Golden Deer are the best choice in Three Houses. Don't even come at me with that Edelgard shit. Well. See you later, I guess.

About RocketKnightone of us since 6:34 PM on 12.15.2009

Hey there, handsome. I'm a university graduate from Ontario that plays more or less every kind of game, even bad ones! I collect old game consoles, though I primarily play on my PC and whatever Nintendo console happens to be out at the time. My favourite games are Baldur's Gate 2, Fallout 2 and Resident Evil 4, though if I made a list of my favourites, it would be enormous. Luigi's Mansion 3 and Pillars of Eternity 2 are currently eating up all of my time. Yum.

That's all. Hope you liked it. Hope it got a chuckle or two out of you. Hope you feel better about your crippling sense of loneliness.
