Gaming in 2019


Games are an important part of entertainment and mental health in my life. This is just a way for me to keep track of what I’ve played and to share it with others.

I’ve long accepted that I will not complete games, but as long as I get what I want out of them, I’m fine with that.

On Deck

These are listed in no particular order, but are definitely experiences I want to get to this year.


Nintendo Switch

Mass Effect: Andromeda

Microsoft Windows 10

It’s time to get back to this game. I had to step away after game-breaking issues with 21:9 resolutions after a patch about 3 months after launch, about 70 hours into the game. I haven’t been back since. Between Michael finishing it recently, and @worthless_bums and @SergeantIndie giving it such high praise recently (and I do appreciate their thoughts), I’m really inspired to get back to it since I really was enjoying my time with the game.

Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee!

Nintendo Switch

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Nintendo Switch

Donut County

Nintendo Switch

Assassin’s Creed Origins

Microsoft Xbox One

I’ve never played an Assassin’s Creed game before, but I’ve heard a lot of neat things about this one.
