I just realized that the template in the first post is missing a W.

A-
B-
C-
D-Doom (Switch): I loved this game. I don't know what more I can say other than this game was completely thrilling to play and make it through each level and hear the music change once you finished off the last enemy in the swarm.
Donkey Kong Country 3D (3DS): Holy cow is this game a challenge. I could not have beat it without the use of the bonus gear you can buy with your gold coins. However, I did beat each of the levels I passed all on my own, rather than using the assist mode to skip past a level (I did use assist mode to see a good strategy to use to beat a level but I would nevertheless beat that level on my own).
E-
F-Fire Emblem Warriors (Switch): I've never really played a musuo game before, but I really like the Fire Emblem franchise and this was just Fire Emblemy enough to convince me to give it a shot.
Floor Kids (Switch): This has been my biggest surprise for the Switch, thus far. I cannot state enough how enjoyable this game was. Fair warning, it is short, and if you are any good at all in figuring out how to pull off the combos you should be able to complete the game getting all five stars on every level in less than 5 hours. That being said, I'm going to replay this game a ton because the different characters are each so fun to watch, the animation is dazzling, and the music is catchy as hell if you are into hip-hop/techno/b-boy scene.
G-
H-
I-I Am Setsuna (Switch): This retro inspired JRPG took me just over 25 hours to beat. Visuals and music are appealing. Once you figure out the spritnite combo system the challenge goes down a little.
J-
K-
L-
M-Metroid Samus Returns (3DS): I enjoyed this game. It isn't about to replace Super Metroid as my favorite in the series, but it was worth the long wait.
N-
O-Oxenfree (Switch): This was a fun, quick game and I loved the feeling of HD Rumble in the joy-cons while adjusting the radio.
P-
Q-
R-Rocket League (Switch): I am really scared to go back and play this game after beating a season, because I can easily see myself getting sucked into this game for a long, long time.
Rayman Legends: This was a really fun platformer. Very challenging at points, but each level was so wonderfully crafted - much like Shovel Knight - where there are decent amount of re-spawn continuation points to make the difficulty a little easier to accept. Great music and beautiful 2D visuals.
S-Splatoon 2 (Switch) Finally beat the single player campaign. This game is widely loved for its multiplayer modes but the campaign is a nice little challenge that teaches you the unique attributes and advantages to all the basic weapons.
T-
U-
V-
W-Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus (Switch): I finished up the main story and I'll leave the additional oberkommando levels for a later day. This was the epitome of fun for me. I didn't like it quite as much as I enjoyed Doom, because if given a choice between stealth or going guns blazing I'd always rather go guns blazing, but it was so fun. That ending, wow!
X-
Y-Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana (Switch): This was such a fun action RPG. I'm generally more of a turn based (and honestly I prefer straight up turn based over active time) RPG kind of fan, but I have to say this was still a lot of fun. Yes, if you grind like crazy you'll become so OP that by the end you can just spam A and pull off a special move here and there for giggles, but the story was entertaining and unpredictable.

Yay! I added Dragon Age: Inquisition (as my I) - the first game I've finished since January!! I am concerned about my pace, but I think I will tackle a few shorter games, so I won't feel like I'm too far behind.

Maybe i'll have to pull off a Musty Marathon at the end of the year!

Added three games to my list: Undertale, DOOM VFR & Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn.

Getting pretty close to finishing A WAY OUT with Kathryn and I hope to convince her to play through HIDDEN AGENDA after that. Yakuza 6 will likely be the next game I play through solo.

I've started Detroit: Become Human as my D game for the year...but honestly not sure if I wanna keep playing.

It's only like 11 hrs I hear if you main line it, but Adventure Games just are not my thing really. Tried it out largely because of my curiosity with the Android stuff, but I don't really find myself engaged in the game.

I've added a lot of games over the past months, but haven't knocked off any new letters ><

I thought Vampyr would be my V... but then I saw I already played Valley. And I'm now up to seven! D games.

Decided to play a bit more of Detroit: Become Human and I’m enjoying it more. I get that they had to do set up for 2 of the androids at the beginning...but the pacing wasn’t the best. I wanna say the first 3 hrs of the game. So majority of those 3 hrs weren’t very fun in terms of making choices. But then the actual conflict moments for each android starts and that’s when the game picks up. Now I'm almost at the halfway point looks like.
