1-1-17 - Final Fantasy XV (X1) - I love the first half hated the back half... especially Chapter 13.
1-7-17 - Dead Rising 4 (X1) - A solid game that could have used a little more depth. This game will probably end up gaining traction with a price drop.
1-9-17 - Quackshot (Genesis) - A great title for the system and a Disney game I had not played before.
1-17-17 - Shantae & The Pirate's Curse (Steam) - A good game and I'm looking forward to playing the newest one.
1-25-17 - Rondo of Blood (TCD) - 100% - Great game.
2-8-17 - Resident Evil 7 (X1) - I would love to try this game in VR one day.
2-9-17 - Abzu (X1) - A relaxing game. I recommend it.
2-14-17 - Diablo (PC) - Nothing to see here.... I started to test the game and finished it.
2-19-17 - For Honor (X1) - Rent it to see if you like it. There's more here than you might expect.
3-9-17 - Sniper Elite 4 (X1) - The loop was not as fun as I would have liked but the end boss battle was really dumb and that made it worth it.
3-20-17 - Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning (360) - I was at the end of the game on PC when my hard drive crashed. I'm glad to have finally finished this one.
4-10-17 - Mass Effect Andromeda (X1) - A lot in this game can be forgiven if the plot was better. Sadly it can't.

I should go back and update my 2016 post.
It should be easy i didn't end up completing much...

1. Jan 5 - Zeno Clash Ultimate Edition (XBLA) - The art style of this game is SUPER off putting. I don't remember the story being to stellar either(picked up where i left off years ago and played with no sound this time.). I can't think of another game tied to Atlus that i have hated so much. I haven't started Zeno Clash II yet tho....

Jan 12     SNES     Secret of Mana     level 82
Jan 13     SNES     Super Mario Bros. 4: Super Mario World     51 exits
Jan 30     SNES     Seiken Densetsu 2     level 76?
Feb 03     SNES     Donkey Kong Country 3     75% Complete
Mar 24     PS Vita     World of Final Fantasy     86% Mirage Manual
Apr 06     PS Vita     Child of Light     Normal difficulty, all trophies, one death ('cos I got careless)
Apr 12     PS Vita     Root Letter     Standard ending

The ending credits to Japanese SMW were interesting, as the music cut out three or four screens before THE END.  The joys of playing a 60Hz game on a 50Hz console.

Playing two versions of the same game (Secret of Mana) almost back to back was rewarding, but also tiring.

World of Final Fantasy is the second game I've played in the last 12 months where an otherwise English game threw in a Japanese song without including subtitles. This is bizarre because 90% of the game's voice acting is DLC.  This is an interesting game, both in what it achieves and what it doesn't.

Root Letter is a game in which the premise and setup were really great, but I felt a bit let down with the ending and some of the mechanics.  I seem to say that about most visual novels I play which is kinda disappointing in of itself.  The game has multiple endings and maybe these endings will improve the overall experience, but this is not a game that really encourages consecutive playthroughs.

I will say I will be beating more than last year. I plan on playing halfway through Skyrim or whatever point I see is about half and then play and beat a shorter or two shorter games. But that's what I am playing now.

Also I am editing the post in 2016's thread with short reviews of the games I did beat.

I can't believe I didn't even post a placeholder here...but anyway, I'll get to it.  I only track new completions, so this list will be missing anything I've beaten in the past, so this isn't everything I've beat this year, only what I've beat for the first time.

Monopoly (SNES) - Finished a game against the maximum number of CPU players.
NHL '97 (SNES) - Okay, so I simmed the season, but I played through the playoffs and won the Stanley Cup.
The Chessmaster (SNES) - Beat the computer on the default settings.
Caesar's Palace (NES) - Got the best car per AdamL's list.
Curious George (Xbox) - My niece had trouble with it (she's 4), but wanted to see the end, so I played through it for her.  Surprisingly fun though!
Rock Band Track Pack 2 (X360) - Played through the career mode on Hard.  I would do Expert, but I can't quite get the later songs.
Batman: Arkham Asylum (X360) - Finished the game on Hard.
Batman: Arkham City (X360) - Would've beat it on Hard if I didn't forget that the save I previously used was set on Easy and didn't realize it until late in the game.  Definitely gonna go back at some point though.
Pocketbike Racer (X360) - Figured I should play through a bunch of quick shit games that have sat for years.  Actually kind of fun, in a glitch-fest sort of way.
Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara (XBLA) - Beat it a crapload of times because I'm an achievement whore.  Got 'em all though.
X-Men Arcade (XBLA) - Again, I beat it multiple times to clear out all the achievements.  Still wondering why it sat on my hard drive unplayed for all these years though Tongue

Pure Chess (XBO) - Another chess game.  Not much to say, but it's definitely fun.
Gears of War (X360) - Beat it on co-op with a friend who wanted to stream it.  I'll never stream a game with him again though...fucking douche Tongue
Mass Effect 3 (X360) - Actually, I beat the entire trilogy, but this was the only new completion I had from it.
Uno (XBLA) - Another full completion.  Not bad, but grinding wins was a bit of a bore.

Risk (PS1) - Played with two human opponents and rounded it out with Hard level AI.
Capcom's Gold Medal Challenge '92 (NES) - Finished on the top of the medal standings for the first time.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - Finished the career on Veteran.  Hate how they're pretty much ignoring campaign mode these days...
Genghis Khan (NES) - Went through the Mongol Conquest first, then graduated to World Conquest and took over Eurasia.
Nobunaga's Ambition (NES) - Much easier than I'd anticipated it to be.  Ninjas are godly!
Shadowrun (X360) - Yeah, it's a multiplayer-only game, but I did manage to get the full achievement list, so I've marked it off.
Donkey Kong (2600) - Only two boards to beat, and I beat them.
Donkey Kong Jr. (2600) - This one has three boards, and I beat all of them.
Mouse Trap (2600) - One board that repeats endlessly.
Mr. Do! (2600) - Another game with a single board that repeats.  Terrible port.
Carnival (2600) - One board that repeats...kind of a pattern with Atari games.  But hey, a win is a win.
Solar Fox (2600) - Finished all 8 boards on Parent Mode.  Gonna have to go back to do the real thing...20 boards on normal mode.
Wizard of Wor (2600) - Pretty much another infinite loop.  I survived past the wave where the Wizard comes after you.  Didn't manage to kill him though, so I'll be playing it again sometime in the future.
Video Chess (2600) - I was expecting this to be easy.  Boy was I wrong!  It's not flashy, but it's one of the toughest AIs I've played against!
Surround (2600) - Well, at least I don't have to play this crap again Tongue
Indy 500 (2600) - Played through all the solo modes.  Not much else you can do when you only own one driving controller.

Air-Sea Battle (2600) - Beat all solo modes, and boy were there a LOT!  Still fun solo, but I'm pretty sure multiplayer is MUCH better.
Star Ship (2600) - This was a load of utter crap. Yeah, I beat all solo games, but only Lunar Lander mode was actually sorta fun.
Star Trek: Conquests - Beat the campaign on normal as the Dominion.  Short, but fun, I'll definitely be going back in the future!
