It’s that time of the year, when everybody turns to reflection on the past and looks to the future, after sufficient amounts of existential dread for the present. I’ve noticed a few lists of all-time favorite video games popping up and thought I’d try my hand at it.
I haven’t been blogging much lately, mainly because my office has instituted oppressive internet policies that keep me from doing anything fun. But I’ve also been playing some cool games in my off time. One such game is Tekken 7, which came out last week.
Did you know the X-Com series had a weird, third-person shooter? I sure didn’t. But apparently I bought it at some point in a classic X-Com game bundle.

It’s way too easy to build up a huge library of games on Steam, even without trying, or having Scrooge McDuck wealth. Seasonal sales, Humble Bundles, even just normal deals are easy enough for a person with a bit of disposable income to rack up the titles. For the average joe, this usually amounts in games coming in faster than games being completed. What a waste! Who knows what treasures are there, already owned!
