You may have noticed, although I suspect now, that I stopped posting monthly lists of what I’ve been watching on TV. It didn’t take long to do and was occasionally useful for me but I figured I’d rather watch another half hour of TV than making a list.

I’m still using Trakt and you can see what I’ve been watching over there.

Games 2016

January 22, 2017 at 20:26 (Games) ()

In 2016 I was going to try and write about all the games I played. I managed this for a while but then got stuck not quite finishing things, forgetting or just running out of time.

Here in chronological order are all the games I spend a significant amount of time with. I ‘finished’ all of them apart from The Witness which I’m still playing (but extremely slowly and there’s no way I’ll be able to remember all the rules to ever finish it).

I’d say all of these are excellent apart from Among The Sleep, Arkham Knight and the Lego Demos. I’ve probably forgotten something, don’t think I played any mobile games apart from Pokemon Go!.
