Every Game I Played in 2015

Here is a list of every game I played in 2015, along with a few sentences I wrote about each at the time.


  • Academagia
    • I wish this had better UI and didn't run super weirdly in a way that makes it really inaccessible and cumbersome to play, because otherwise I would LOVE IT. I wish I could play it on my phone or iPad or something in bed because I love the setting and writing and stuff but… the form it is presented in right now is not good and that's sad.
  • Alphabear
    • Hated the ridiculous difficulty spike, didn't like how you couldn't go back to other islands (maybe they changed this but I was already gone), it was fun while it lasted
  • Amnesia: Memories
    • Well regarded otome game that I feel guilty for not enjoying more. Didn't like the writing, especially not how passive the protagonist is (huge difference between passive and submissive - she didn't even feel like she was THERE half the time).
  • Armello
    • GORGEOUS, interesting win conditions and generally really fun to play, want to try it out with friends real bad
  • Black Closet
    • Solid writing with neat characters, cool mechanics (I love any game with a saboteur-type mechanic), kind of a weak ending though?
  • Blackguards
    • it was ok.
  • Bloom
    • every day I cry
  • Cupid
    • I loved this and can't recommend it to anyone oops? It was so interesting. Did atmospheric horror and tension super well. I liked how dark some of the endings got because I'm a trash goblin. Didn't like playing as the abusive mother character, but that's because of my own personal shit and I think was maybe part of the point - can't help but think I would have liked it even more without that part there, though
  • D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die
    • Swery is one of the only developers who makes stubbly white guy protagonists that I completely adore and I think it's because both York and David are very obviously HELLA mentally ill. But it's never like, demonized or presented as "look how SCARY these CRAZY PEOPLE are". It's funny at times, but in a way that doesn't feel like I'm laughing AT them? It feels funny in the way I can laugh at my own mental shit sometimes and I'm grateful for it. I love David Young
  • Darkest Dungeon
    • FUN + FRUSTRATING and beautiful to look at
  • Divinity: Original Sin
    • I love having two protagonists even in a single-player campaign and the dialogue system was SO COOL and inspiring but the story never grabbed me and I found combat kind of tedious :(
  • Dragon Age Inquisition (Trespasser)
    • FUCK
  • Dyscourse
    • this was bad. this was just really bad and I was so disappointed because I was ready to fall in love. Everyone was insufferable
  • Epanalepsis
    • I love Cameron and I liked Catachresis but I felt like this game talked down to me a lot and like I didn't really "get it" but maybe that was the point so I dunno dude
  • Fallout 4
    • someone described it as a Fallout-themed theme park as opposed to an actual Fallout game and I think that's very true A+ DATING SIM THO
  • Final Fantasy X HD Remaster
    • way better than I remember, Tidus's voice acting is way worse than I remember, why do people like Auron he is kind of a dick? Like can you stop yelling at Yuna for five minutes maybe let the girl cry she's kind of going through a lot right now buddy
  • Final Fantasy X-2 HD Remaster
    • just as good as I remember. it is still and always the best one
  • Final Fantasy XIII
    • Bought it on 2 different platforms so I could try playing it and I think I have to accept that I don't like it. The story felt almost aggressively alienating/confusing and I say this as someone who likes Kingdom Hearts and the combat was boring but I love Lightning and I'm glad the game exists
  • Final Fantasy XIV
    • Beautiful, gorgeous animations especially, but such a chore for me to play - easy to make good-looking characters but hard to make distinct-looking ones
  • Grim Fandango Remastered
    • How the actual fuck did I beat this without a walkthrough when I was 10? The art and music and writing are all *chef kiss* but these fucking PUZZLES??
  • Guild Wars 2
    • It's my favorite MMO, officially. Sorry to The Secret World. I love being a gay plant and I love how it makes me feel so happy to see other players because there's no real competition outside of PvP/WvW. I love how colorful it is! I even love the lore and some of the characters! I wanna fuck Trahearne!
  • Her Story
    • UGH UGH UGH ICK ICK ICK I am so sick of this painfully predictable plot twist being praised as amazing and good when it's just the same ableist trash rehashed for the millionth time
  • HuniePop
    • Real Shame About The Racism!
  • Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1
    • Anime was a mistake.
  • Idolmaster Cinderella Girls: Starlight Stage
    • makes Love Live look like garbage. Fairer scouting system, better events, pretty much every girl has thought put into her instead of a core group of a few with the rest being neglected, better songs. I'm in hell!
  • Invisible, Inc.
    • SO GOOD I love the visual style of the character portraits, I love how tense it can get, I love love love it
  • Life Is Strange Episode 1
    • I love gay girls but the rest of the series got too full of heavy stuff I knew I wouldn't be okay playing so I had to stay away for my own mental health
  • Love Live: School Idol Festival
    • When? When will death come?
  • Maid With Perfection
    • yikes
  • Nekoatsume
    • Cats are good.
  • Pillars of Eternity
    • I love Aloth and Eder and Pallegina and my god why didn't this have romance. Fuck I hate the combat so much though. I feel like I want to slap everyone's rose-colored glasses off when it comes to older CRPGs because the complex systems are not necessarily better, they are often really unintuitive and cumbersome for no reason. The fucking D&D-esque fantasy game handled mental illness with more care and thoughtfulness than Her Story did
  • Sir, You Are Being Hunted
    • I LIKED IT BUT I GOT SCARED
  • Siren For Hire
    • It made me sad but it also felt very honest and I love when stories feel honest
  • Starfighter: Eclipse
    • HOOOOOO WEE THAT;S SOME GOOD SHIT I FORGOT PORN GAMES COULD BE HOT
  • Story of Seasons
    • Such a big improvement to past Harvest Moon games, especially for character customization, I love to farm and have cute animals and make honey and perfume and wine
  • Style Savvy: Trendsetters
    • WHY DID IT TAKE ME SO LONG TO PLAY A STYLE SAVVY GAME it's SO FUN I have the best gothic lolita boutique but why do I have to style men though
  • Sunless Sea
    • I love Fallen London and I loved this but holy shit that difficulty curve is hard to swallow. The writing is so good and I love the legacy system and everything but I wish it wasn't so difficult, probably because I'm a baby
  • The Elder Scrolls Online
    • Kind of amazed at how much it felt like a single player Elder Scrolls game at points, until I'd see a bunch of naked Khajiit dancing in a town hub? I need to see what the RP community is like because I think that's what would really pull me in
  • The Sims 4
    • It felt SO hard to go from The Sims 3 with all my stuff to The Sims 4, like, it just felt very apparent how bare it is without expansion packs, or maybe I'm spoiled.
  • The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings
    • NPCs joked around with me about raping Triss within the first 10 minutes, uninstalled immediately
  • This War of Mine
    • I love Eastern European Suffering Simulators and I think I'll be coming back to this one, it's not super complex which makes it actually understandable to play but there's enough depth to keep me interested
  • Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters
    • I still don't understand what the hell this game even is
  • Tusks: The Orc Dating Sim
    • I WANT MORE… GIVE ME MORE BUFF ORCS TO KISS...
  • UnderTale
    • Sweet and earnest and really fucking well-written. Aside from two boss fights, both in the No Mercy route, the difficulty of the bullet hell sections completely works against it though and that's such a shame
  • We Know the Devil
    • This was such a well-put together thing like, from the UI to the audio and the backgrounds and sprites everything felt so solid and cohesive and it just worked wonderfully. I want to see Aevee write more horror because I think I would die
