In this last part of my year in review (part 1, part 2), I won’t be discussing specific games but rather events from my gaming life in the last year. I will also look ahead and try to lay down my gaming goals for the upcoming year.
As with any attempt at looking ahead, things might turn out differently, so be warned…
Last week I published the first part of my Year in Review, looking at two extremes: big meaty games and short micro games. In this instalment, I’ll look at 2 player games, some light but still meaty games and finally some Serious games.
Lots more games to look at, so let’s go!
As the year comes to a close, I figured it would be good to do a Year in Review, to look back at the games I played, or at very least the games that I thought really stood out. I don’t really want to rank the games as there are many apples and oranges in here and the comparison wouldn’t be fair. On the other hand, I have organized the games in sub-categories so that it would be easier to find the games that you might be interested in reading about.
Note that I don’t really limit myself to games that have been released in 2013 but rather games that I’ve played for the first time in 2013. Another thing about this Year in Review is that I’ve noticed games that I thought I had played in the last year and I didn’t, which makes me want to play them again soon! Ahh, the pleasure of playing games! Never enough time to play all the games you love.
I’ve broken down this post into three parts since when I looked at the list of games I wanted to go over, it was quite long! The second part will be posted next week and includes 2-player games, Light games and some Serious games. In Part 3 I’ll go over other gaming events of the last year, so stay tuned!
In this first part, we’ll look at polar opposite: big meaty games and micro games. So, without further ado, let’s look at those games!
