My Favorite Games of 2016
Can you guys believe that the end of the year is almost near? I can't believe that it went by so fast. The beginning wasn't bad, but the last couple of months, have been pretty disasterous, at least for me. I'm not going to rehash my feeling about the election, but if you are interested you can read all about it here.
I watched a ton of great movies, read a bunch of books, and played quite a few games, I figured I would talk about a few of my favorite games today! For 2016 I had a PS4 and a Nintendo 3DSXL and a "new" 3DSXL. My grouping of favorites is always organized by how much I enjoyed the video game, not how popular it is, or was. I tend to buy games after their prime, so there maybe a few older games in the bunch. So without further ado, here we go!
- Pokemon Sun 3DS: I pre-ordered both versions because I couldn't decide which one I wanted to play. So, I preordered both and then brought them home. There's a whole video about why I made my decision, and I will be writing about the differences that I noticed while playing and that will be a post in the future. I feel like I'm doing a much better job of training and evolving my pokemon, I 've made it far as the third island and fighting the Kahuna. I even caught a Pichu evolve into Pikachu, which just made my life. Pichu's only evolve, if they love you and they are leveled up.
- Project X Zone 2 3DS: This is a game that has been on a constant cycle all year, I think I'm down to the last few levels, but they just started to get all kind of crazy! This game is great as far as cross overs are concerned. It puts other games like Marvel V.S. Capcom to shame. I'm unsure why it is so difficult for different companies to license games like this, but they need to make it way easier, because the game is amazing!! I've been stuck on the same level for the past couple of weeks though, so I'm hoping to pass and complete the game soon!
- Pokemon: Omega Ruby 3DS: If you know anything about me, you'll know that I am a huge fan of pokemon. I own pretty much every game, and I've seen every movie. One thing I haven't done however, is complete a game. I wanted to do that with Omega Ruby, since they were pretty much rehashes of the original, but I have a problem keeping up with where I am and staying organized if I stray away from a game for too long. That's pretty much what happened here. Since I am already currently playing Sun, I fear that I won't be touching Ruby for quite some time, but I am hoping that I make some considerable headway later next year. One of my favorite features of this game was sneaking up on the pokemon shadows in tall grass. It made me feel like I was really there.
Tiny Cartridge anyway I can, not because they pay me or anything, but just because they are so informative when it comes to both mainstream and indie handheld games, and its awesome, to be so well informed.
- Sailor Moon Drops (Phone): Special Mention. I generally don't blog about phone games, but I have spent some serious playhours on this game. I can play it pretty much anywhere as long as my phone stays charged, and I am loving the nostalgia of seeing all of my favorite characters again as I do one of my favorite things ever, complete puzzle challenges.
What are some games that you guys are loving this year? Lets chat about it on twitter.
