Two-Tear Anniversary and 10 Favorite Posts of the Past Year banner

That’s right, my second year of writing for my blog. I once again continued this weekly schedule that I somehow managed to keep for the vast majority of the time. Only in a handful of cases was I forced to take a week off. Truthfully, I’ve been tempted to stop, but it’s become such a regular thing that I keep pumping out words.

My final post where I look back at 2017 before diving into a new year and all the new games 2018 will provide. For anyone who hasn’t read my self-indulgent Game of the Year posts (which is, going by viewer count, everyone but my parents), I typically provide a space to write about the games that didn’t make my Top Ten, but I want to write about anyway. Sometimes because they’re bad, sometimes because they’re good and I feel guilty for excluding them, and sometimes because they do something so weird that I want to move the spotlight onto it.
