Notes & thoughts

2022 was very much a backlog year for me. I spent most of my game time in JRPGs, (FF6, TMS:FE, DQ11) and finished none of them. It’s very telling that the games I did finish were all somewhat short platformers and Playdate games.

But a backlog year is good!

2023 had a ludicrous number of new games already announced, so I expect this list to be pretty different next year.
