Yeah, I actually beat X before the year was over, so it's a fair pick. It only took me 140 hours.
MGS5 was barely under that.

I really need to start the Witcher series too.

Amiibo Festival aside, was there any other game you played that didn't live up to your expectations?

I didn't really buy any of the new games this year, so judging any would be unfair.

Best OST: Xenoblade Chronicles 3D
Yes, one of my favorite OST's.


Also, if I had played Life is Strange last year, it would have been my favorite by far. It'll probably be my favorite game of this year.

Wouldn't necessarily put that in the 'games' list, but honestly, I would have rather seen another Smash ballot runner-up than Corrin, who will be the only character I will not buy. The Smash ballot thing turned out to be disappointing overall because they only released one character from it.
I like Bayonetta though.

I mean gameplay wise Corrin's pretty good, and I'm pretty trash with Bayo. Disappointing considering other chars that could've made it, but when a char comes out , we take those
