This is my ninth annual roundup of games I’ve played in a given year, and I’m publishing it ten months late; the last two years have been incredibly difficult for me, and projects like this one have gone slowly.

For the eighth year in a row, I’m publishing a roundup of every game I played in the past year. As you can see, I completely failed to accomplish last year’s promise of doing this quarterly, hence the massive block of text below. Hopefully I can break it up more in 2020, but given that […]

For the seventh year in a row, I’m published a roundup of every game I played in the past year. Last year, I experimented with going beyond the “one sentence” format; I felt it had become overly constraining, particularly since this has been my only substantial piece of game writing for the last few years (not […]

Short Notes on Every Game I Played in 2017

For the fifth year in a row, I’m writing a few sentences about every game I played this year.
