Like bouchart said, shorter/simpler games are easier to review. Especially since many of those I'd played years before and pretty much just booted up to refresh my memory and grab screenshots

Could some of you look at my list and let me know if you've reviewed any of these games this year? I might rework things for #44.

I did Castlevania The Adventure.

Not this year, but I interpreted 44 as reviewing anything one of the other participants has done, not just during the challenge.

I'm nowhere near the guys pumping out 40+, but this was my most prolific year so here's my final tally (I'm certain I won't beat GoW in 14 days, let alone write a review) and a few minor stats for posterity.

3. Demon's Souls (2000-2009)
4. Dark Souls 3 (2010-2017)
5. Pokemon Quest (2018)
14. Overwatch (first-person shooter)
16. Shovel Knight (platformer)
17. Horizon Zero Dawn (action game)
20. Trials Fusion (sports game)
26. Golf Story (comedy)
27. Life is Strange (female lead)
28. Child of Light (child lead)
33. Stardew Valley (previously reviewed, no update)
37. Nioh (fifty hours to beat)
42. Ratchet & Clank (adapted into another medium)

Maximum views (253) and votes (3) was for Nioh, which shows the clear bonus from having that RotM trophy. Only two of my older reviews beat it for the year with two bigger titles grabbing 600+. My highest views without the trophy was Shovel Knight's 139, nothing else released this year cracked the 100 (Stardew got 121, but only on this list as a technicality).

Nioh was my most popular with 100% from those 3 votes, while Horizon Zero Dawn was my most disliked with 0% from 1.

32. Review a game with a lead from a fictional species
Cuphead: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/xboxone/805499-cuphead/reviews/167411

Completed: 7/50
Categories: 18, 29, 32, 41, 44, 48, 50

Finally got a new review up! I’m almost done with one for Rayman Origins too but that likely won’t get posted until next year. 7 is a lot fewer than I usually do, but I was really busy with FAQs this year.

Would anyone like to suggest new categories for next year? Anyone who participated can nominate a new one to replace one on the list!

^ nice, I bought Cuphead on sale through GOG a while back and never played it. Nice to know it meets the hype.

I like the current categories, only adjustment I'd make is to rename #19 to something like "Review a visual novel / adventure game". The genres are similar (VNs are technically a subgenre of adventure games) but I'm not really interested in VNs at all.

Sounds good! That is a fair point because VNs are a very niche genre, I'll admit. I'll make that change next year.

38/50 isn't too bad considering I wasn't even focused on doing this.
