Final Thoughts

Final Thoughts is what I call the write-up I post for each game I complete as part of my backlog playthrough group, Rogue’s Adventures.

My Final Thoughts are written like a very personal, subjective review, and typically less about nuts and bolts game mechanics and more about the experiences I had while playing. Since I divide my schedule into Seasons like a TV show, I write a Recap at the end of each Season dictating various stats and ranking the games I played, which I’ve also included below.

The first Final Thoughts was written after I started Rogue’s Adventures and completed my first game in November 2012, however I didn’t begin posting them to my blog until April of 2013. By Mid-Summer 2013 I was caught up and since then all my Final Thoughts are posted to my blog within a few days of finishing the latest game in my scheduled backlog.

Bolded titles were featured on GI’s weekly Blog Herding and/or the Game Informer Newsletter.
