Time for the final gaming wrap up of the year! I can’t believe I’ve actually managed to do these every month because this was just this random idea at the end of last year when I was doing the 2017 wrap up and I couldn’t remember which games I had actually played that year. This time I can very easily check that out!
First of all, I finally finished God of War! I’m very glad my classmate mentioned it has a “secret ending” because it wouldn’t have even occurred to me to go looking for that after the first credits. I’d have just continued exploring side quests forever haha. I really enjoyed the game (as I already mentioned in my Favorite Games of 2018 post) and that’s gonna be my first game review of 2019 once I get around to actually writing it. I’ll probably keep looking for some extra stuff like freeing dragons when I’m in the mood for some dad of boy again.
Thanks to Christmas I ended up getting a bunch of new games from friends (and from myself) this month too. First of all, my fiance bought me Vampyr (and also the Skyrim Special Edition but I haven’t even installed that yet), which I’ve only played for about an hour so far but it seems really interesting. The controls in it feel a bit clunky but not bad enough that it would bother me a lot since the story has got me curious. I don’t think I’ve ever actually played a game specifically about vampires before!
We also did a game secret santa with some friends, and my santa got me three games: Life is Strage: Before the Storm, Phantom Brave and A Rose in the Twilight. I haven’t played Phantom Brave or Rose in the Twilight yet but they’re both games I’ve been eyeing for a long time (and I’m a fan of Disgaea so Phantom Brave especially has been on my list for ages) so I’m excited to play them eventually.
I decided to play LiS: Before the Storm first since I know it’s a short and chill game so it’s a nice way to kinda get myself back into proper gaming mood. I’m not sure how far into episode 1 I am but I’m surprised how nice it is because I’m not the biggest fan of Chloe and that’s who I have to play as. I’m actually looking forward to playing more.
I also treated myself to Monster Prom, which I’ve been interested in ever since it came out, and I’m probably going to give it a try as soon as I’m done writing this post, and I also did a little impulse buy in the local game store today and bought Gravity Rush Remastered for PS4. I had no idea what that game is like, it just happened to be cheap and the cover looked cute and I have a vague memory of someone telling me at some point that it’s a good game, so I just went for it. And it is pretty cool! The whole floating thing had me a bit confused at first, but it’s pretty fun once I sort of figured it out.
So uh, yeah, I have a lot to play! Since I finally have some free time I’m gonna really try and relax with some good games.
Have you guys had time to enjoy any fun games during the holidays or just in general this month?
