Good gravy, another year already??? In 2017 I played a decent range of different genres pretty well split between old vs. new games and console vs. handheld games. In a surprise upset I wound up playing more smartphone games than on any console (I played slightly less 3DS games than smartphone games, although more on 3DS if you include 3DS eShop games), and equally surprising was that two of my four favorite games I played this year were for smartphones. I suspect this is an anomaly rather than a trend, but we'll have to see how that develops.
I played a fair amount of random stuff this year, although the last couple of months were dominated by playing games on Switch. Nintendo's releases for 2018 are a pretty big mystery (which I'm hoping the next Nintendo Direct will shed some much-needed light on), but I'm half hoping there aren't too many heavy hitters since I have plenty of games in my backlog to try to catch up on and finish, including more than a couple of Switch games from this past year.
That's it for another year in review. As always, thanks as always to anyone who’s stumbled across my little patch of cyberspace and found it even mildly diverting, and welcome to another full year of video games at the Intergalactic Video Game Academy! ;)
