Games

Here I publish reviews on games I played. Some of these reviews may contain minor or major spoilers, which is explicitly stated when relevant.

The primary purpose of this is to:

  1. Capture my impressions of a game.
    Memory fades quickly, and it is nice to have a place like this where I can recall my feelings about a game.
  2. Analyze and highlight things that I especially liked or disliked.
    Everybody wants to be a game designer, me included!
    Having a list of good and bad mechanics, designs, and approaches may be helpful to me.

All of this is 100% subjective, of course. If you don’t agree with something — it is fine! You can reach me out and we can discuss it if you want :)
