Lately, I've been having trouble remembering what games I've played and what games I haven't. It's pretty hard to keep track of all that in my brain, so I decided to keep track of them on here, along with brief reviews of what I thought about them. I guess you could say I'm starting over with a clean slate. My list will grow over time; I hope you enjoy it. ^_^

After playing the first Edna and Harvey (and hating it), I was very weary to play the second one. I felt like I had to, though, because if I own a game, I feel as though I have to finish it. However, the second Edna and Harvey was definitely a pleasant surprise. Instead of the abundant bugs that I was expecting, I found this game to be surprisingly well-polished. Game-play: 7 So much better than the original. The archaic layout of the first game is replaced with much prettier, better functioning action icon. You're given the option to look at or make an action. In this game, unlike the first, there is only one action to take with an item, so you don't have to sift through useless actions that do nothing. Furthermore, the riddles make much more sense in this game than the original. In the first game, you...
What a weird game. I spent so much time trying to push myself through this game that, by the end, I was so numb to this game even the ending made me feel nothing. I just felt nothing. I understand the reason behind the rushed and amateurish feeling the game gave off, as Edna and Harvey was made as a college thesis by a small, inexperienced team. It is officially known as Daedalic's debut game. However, despite it winning several awards, I still can't recommend it to anyone. So much work and love went into this game, apparent by the fact that Edna will comment on anything and everything you click on. The voice-acting was pretty good for a point-and-click game. At times, the game was fun and the story slightly heart-rending, but it took too long to get there, and, by that point, you just don't care. My official...
Spyro the Dragon PlayStation 1
Spyro is one of those series I hear about that makes me wish certain aspects of my childhood had gone differently. I hear about the devout admiration fans of this series possess for this tiny, purple dragon, and I wish that I would have been able to be a part of this nostalgia bomb. Alas, owning only a SNES when I was little, I wasn't able to be, and, unfortunately, I think it might have ruined the game for me. Make no mistake, Spyro is a great game. Even just wandering around, I can see the love and dedication that went into designing levels for this game. Spyro was most definitely a labor of love and it shows. This would have be an incredible game to play with friends when I was younger. I can definitely see my younger self getting into this. However, something just didn't click with me....
Silent Hill PlayStation 1
Silent Hill... you frequently hear the name bantered about whenever horror games come up. It's on nearly every horror game list that exists and yet, for me, at least, I had several misconceptions about the game. Before playing this game, I kind of assumed that the game would make use of typical "jump-scares" and cheap tactics to try and scare the player. This is not true, however, and I found myself immersed in a game that defines the term "survival". Gameplay: 6 While the game itself might be good, most of the mechanics aren't. A big issue with this game are the controls. Just moving alone proved arduous, as weird camera angles, sluggish controls, and unusual walking controls make this game way harder than it should be. In fact, in order to be able to turn, most of the time you have to make a complete stop, then turn, otherwise Harry...
Final Fantasy: Anniversary Edition Sony PSP
Recently picked up this game for my PSP. I've always wanted to start the Final Fantasy, as I can name at least three of my friends right off hand that are absolutely obsessed with this series. However, I never knew where to begin because the community has very mixed feelings about certain members of the series. I decided to just bite the bullet and play the first one, knowing full well I can't really judge the whole game series on a remake of a game that's nearly 30 years old. That being said, my review will try to be as fair to its age as I can be. Game-play: The mechanics work as they're supposed to, which, if they didn't, we'd have a real problem. The controls are simple and easy to use, to the point, where a child wouldn't have much difficulty playing this game. However, the game-play is a...
