Every Video Game I Played in 2022

Amazingly, I finally finished my big, long Game of the Year wrap-up this week. So I figured whipping up another one of these would be a fun follow-up. There’s just something satisfying about agonizing over one post for three months, only to turn around and finish another in one sitting.

This series (it’s a series now) started as a post marking the games I’d Played in Quarantine So Far, but now it strikes me as sort of a fun companion piece to the annual beefy GOTY post. Remember 2020? Remember the concept of “quarantine?” Remember people doing their best to help each other in uncertain times? Quaint.

I also want to try to write smaller posts in an effort to write more this year, and this fits that bill.

I record this list in the back of my Hobonichi Techo as the year goes on, and now also on Backloggd! Which is a very cool website!

As was the case last year, a game gets recorded to my list IF:

  • It has not yet been recorded this year, AND…
    • Is a new game I’m starting fresh, OR…
    • Is an old game that I finished or otherwise made progress in.

Games I completed in 2022 are bold.
Previously played games are italicized.
(Platforms) are given in parentheses to differentiate where necessary.

I will also just say before starting the list, that I think this system is a bit too loose, as evidenced by the sheer number of games on this list that I didn’t really spend a meaningful amount of time with. I’m tightening my criteria up this year, so that next year’s list more accurately reflects how I spent my time.

There you have it!

You can really tell when I learned how to hack my 3DS, and when I got my Playdate! It’s a shame I didn’t like the vast majority of those Playdate games. Again, as I said, this is far more games than should probably be on this list. Many of these entries were just me checking a game out for a bit, and then dipping. Next year will be tighter.

Until then!
