The Nintendo Resolution: My Year in Video Games, 2016


Mii

In the 2016 intro/hub page for the Nintendo Resolution, I stated pretty emphatically that there was no way I could match the 36 video games I beat in 2015.  Well, I not only matched that number, but I fucking blew it out of the water – in the calendar year of 2016, I beat 48 goddamn games.

The Nintendo Resolution 2016


Mii2016 is looking to be a pretty interesting year for video games, particularly if you’re a big Nintendo fanboy like myself.  It seems all but confirmed that we will have a brand new console to play with by the end of the year, and will see new releases in the Legend of Zelda and Star Fox franchises.

When I started “The Nintendo Resolution” about a year ago, my stated goal was to clear out my video game backlog – the games that I’d purchased, started playing, and then completely abandoned for one reason or another.

Mission accomplished!  Of the 36 games I beat this year (see the original hub page for the full list, as well as links to my write-ups on each one), 12 were games that had been on my backlog for some amount of time.  And although you can see a clear point where I refocused my attention to newly-released games, I think playing them with this “resolution” in mind kept me determined to see them through to the end.  On any other year, many of those games would have just become fresh new additions to the backlog (especially goddamned Earthbound Beginnings).
