On the other hand, I only add games I've beaten for the first time to my list. Do whatever works for you.

I just put *'s next to my replays.

They tend to take up half my list because I like playing good games that are good again.

Of course, it's also just a matter of time before someone starts this year's "Games NOT Beaten" thread.
The PSTV is amazing.

Games Beaten 2015

1. Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call - 3DS
2. A Bird Story - PC *new*
3. Quake - PC *new*
4. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare - PS4 *new*

Total: 4


Previously: 2014 | The First 400 Games

Despite the sci-fi additions and the (underutilized) jumping mechanics, this was a pretty typical COD campaign....which I tend to think of as a good thing. Predictable, beautiful, fast-paced, and goofy - and all the more fun for it. I thought the character models were really impressive - some of the best I've seen in any game - and Spacey was well used for the most part. As someone who primarily plays these games for the campaign and expects more or less to play some new version of "G.I. Joe for adults" every year, I have yet to be let down by the franchise.

^I left off on the mission where you end up in a tank, mowing down Atlus. I stopped because of Grandia, but do plan to finish up soon, as I really think AW is a blast. Am I pretty close to the end?

I'd guess about 2/3 or so. The whole thing is only ~6 or so hours I'd say, as is pretty typical for the series.

There was a lot more scripted stuff/QTEs than I recall in earlier entries - I felt like the actual amount of time I spent shooting things and working out the details/strategy of a firefight was less than in some of the MW games, for example. I am split on whether I like this or Ghosts better. Did you play that?

...and I'm 7.9 hrs in. WTF? Hmm.

Anyway, I did not play Ghosts, but that was the first one in the series that really caught my attention and I did want to play it. So I'll probably play that one next. Maybe I'll work my way backwards through the series haha. Though I did play a bit of the very first game.

Okay, well with that in mind I think I'd like to also list replays, so...

1) Gravity Rush (PS Vita)
2) Dear Esther (PC)*

Replayed through Dear Esther for a nice little bit of relaxation. Understood the story a little better this time, lol. I know a lot of people don't like games like this because they find them boring, but I love em.
I feel old when talking to anyone my age yet too inexperienced to effectively talk to anyone older. Life is grand that way.

There's no play time counter so that's mostly a guess. It may have been closer to 8, but HLTB says 7...

I'm nearing the end of Drakengard 3... I hope. These damn "branches" are killing me :lol: . Game has definitely taken a turn that I wasn't expecting and things are getting confusing as hell. Really hoping the ending ties things up.
