Game of the Year Number 3. Night in the Woods

I’ve had trouble writing about Night in the Woods. I kept on going back and forth on two different approaches to this. One is I was going to try and write a professional general piece on it like I did with Pyre. The other is I was going to get pretty personal in this piece. I’m still new to this whole writing thing. I didn’t want this to turn into a blog post. I wanted to present myself as professional. So I spent the past days writing a super general piece. Then I thought more about NITW. It’s a game about messy people. And I wasn’t liking the general piece. Also fuck it only 3 people are going to read this anyway. So let’s get messy and personal.

Game of the Year Number 4. Wolfenstein II The New Colossus

Wolfenstein 2 is not the game of the year but it’s the game of 2017. In a year where were getting alt-right profiles in the New York Times and a tax cut that only benefits the rich. The world is becoming a much more welcoming place to the worst people. It sucks. It shouldn’t be this way. Wolfenstein 2 is not going to save us. Its pretty nice to have though. Wolfenstein 2 doesn’t just let you kill Nazis. It also has you team up with black revolutionaries and communists. It’s a game that knows that Nazis are more than some skin for players to kill.

Game of the Year Number 5. Butterfly Soup

Butterfly Soup is a visual novel developed by Brianna Lei. It’s about gay Asian girls playing baseball and falling in love. Butterfly soup is also the funniest game I played this year. It’s also very sweet and warm. Its 3-4 hours long and its FREE. Go play it there’s no excuse not to. Then come back and read what I have to say about it.

Game of the Year Number 6. Persona 5

 

I believe there’s 2 main camps with Persona 5. One is “JRPGS are bad besides Final Fantasy 7 and Persona 5.”. Two is “This game is actually not that great. The games story is boiler plate. Also it’s still really problematic.” The right camp here number 2. The problem is I still find myself sometimes sneaking over to the other camp. Which I know is wrong. Its just I really like this game even though its not that great.  Continue reading “Game of the Year Number 6. Persona 5”

Game of the Year Number 7. Danganronpa v3

 

Dear Friend theirs spoilers for every Danganrnopa game here.

 

I beat Danganrnopa V3 awhile ago. It’s only starting to sit with me. I’m probably going to be unsure about my feelings on it for awhile. So I decide to write you this letter. Get my thoughts straight. I think you like these games right? I don’t know. Anyway I was doing pretty bad the night I beat this game. So of course I decided to beat the murder teen game. I thought it was a good idea. It always ends with pretty nice power of friendship saves the day moments. If only everything could end that way. It’s a classic staple Anime ending. You know why? Its always great. My expectations on what that ending was wrong though.. Like really wrong. I actually don’t know if you beat the game yet. We haven’t been keeping up recently. Here I’ll write about the game as a whole in case you haven’t.

Game of the Year Number 8. Mario Odyssey

Mario Odyssey is the biggest kiddie pool ever.  You sit in it look around and all you can see is endless water. Everywhere you go the water doesn’t get deeper than 4 feet.  You keep on growing up and soon the pool is too small for you.  You’re ready to do crazy somersaults but the pool doesn’t give you the ability to do this.  So you become content to doggy paddle though the pool for the rest of your days.

Game of the Year Number 9. Pyre

Supergiant Games are probably one of the most well-known indie developers today. They hit it off pretty well with Bastion. Bastion was an isometric action game where you travel though a destroyed world while an old man narrates everything you do.  It was one of my favorite games that year. Then 3 years later they released Transistor which was a game where you stopped time to queue up moves with a talking sword. It was also one of my favorite games of that year. Now Pyre is here. It’s a visual novel slash 3v3 sports game. It’s also again one of my favorite games this year. I think what I’m trying to say is Supergiant makes a great weird game every 3 years and that’s really cool.
