Backlog Blitz December 2017 & Final Roundup

BacklogGames Bought: Tekken 7

Games Completed: Tekken 7 (Paul and Hwoarang Story) and Watch_Dogs 2.

Final Year Score: -19

Completion count: 25

Well that is that, 2017 has come and gone and so too has my Backlog Blitz – whilst it was tough going in some months, I think that I have been fallen well short of completing 52 games in one calendar year – I have certainly completed more games in 2017 than I have in a very long time.

Even though 2017 was a pretty poor year for blog output (especially the second half of the year) it was an absolute stormer in terms of me playing games! Unfortunately for me and my Game of the Year, most (if not all) of these games were released too early to be considered for the title!

When I look back at those games that have stuck in my head, there is a real variety in genres, tones and content!

Here’s the games that stick out in my mind, the games that made my 2017 absolutely amazing! Continue reading
