33. Beat a game with a robot/artificial lead

Mighty No. 9

I can't remember the last time I played a game as unfun as this one. It feels like every level was designed around bulls*** instant kill obstacles. I got this for free and still feel ripped off.

44. Beat a game based on licensed stories/characters

Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series

I enjoyed this one, and prefer it to the first season of the Batman game. Something about comedy meshes well with the Telltale style of storytelling.

8. Beat a spin-off or a game that rebooted a franchise

Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below

- Finally beat another game after sputtering out on a few, and continuing to delay some 2017 save files.

Dragon Quest Heroes is the second musou game I've played. I started Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends for this topic, but I've only completed one campaign so far and get quite disinterested in playing after a map or two at a time. I don't know how long until I can add that to this list, but I'm going to make some comparisons now.

Though DW8XL boasts many more weapon types, more complex combat, a host of personalities, and much bigger maps... as someone who doesn't know anything about the Romance lore, it's just too all over the place for my tastes. Characters come and go with little fanfare, the story jumps forward years after nearly every chapter, the maps are confusing and similar, and you're forced upon new characters with completely different playstyles all the time. The game has felt like more of a chore.

Dragon Quest Heroes is definitely an easier game that trades battlefield warfare and hidden missions for a really fun story, fun and familiar enemies, and a great cast of characters. I thoroughly enjoyed the pacing of the game and the amount of sidequests. Character voices and combat styles were well-defined and fun. The cutscenes were entertaining. I love the classic Dragon Quest soundtrack (that I heard all the time playing Fortune Street). This was so much fun and revitalized a yearning to play the classics. My friend even went out and bought Dragon Quest VIII after watching some of my play.

Some of the most fun continues to be trying to beat up Metal Slimes. I love the chase!

29. Beat a game with comedy as a central theme
Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge

45. Beat a game that's been adapted into another medium
Hitman: Absolution

48. Beat a game that starts with the first letter of your username

I'm not sure if Absolution qualifies for that category, but they have made two movies based on the series!
