Jake’s List of Video Game Purchases 2017

I buy a lot of video games.  I thought it would be enlightening to keep track of every video game purchase throughout the year 2017.  After the break I’ve compiled every video game that I purchased including the system that I bought it on.  I also included some games that were received as a gift and denoted them as such.  I did not include any games that I received free through Xbox Live Games with Gold, or other such promotions.  Hopefully, I don’t need to update the list with any new games before the new year!

That is a lot of games!  All told I purchased 63 games in 2017.  With a good mix of retro games, games from 2016, and new releases.   I also got a number of games for the PC during Steam Sales and 13 games for the Nintendo Switch!  Mostly action games and a lot of first person shooters, but I did start to play more indie games towards the end of the year!

What trends did you notice from 2017?
