2017 - what a year for iOS

So i buy a LOT of apps, devastated when the 32 bit app-pocalypse happened, lost tons of games. Bought an old ipad to put them on that which helped with this devastation

But so many amazing games from September onwards...

The Little Ball that could, Cat Quest, Fighting Fantasy, Warlock of Firetop Mountain, Iron Marines, Warhammer Quest II, Death Point, Old Mans Journey, GNOG, Morphite, The Sun Origin, Grid Autosport, Neverending Nightmares,
Portal Knights, FEZ, Oddworld New and tasty, Inside, Into the Dead 2

To me so many AAA type games, when i open my folder of 'Best' games theres just so many ! Love it !

Great second half of the year

Great year again, but in the next year I just wanna buy fewer games, because most games I buy or download leave my device within one day, so I am gonna pick the cherries out of the cake next year, because too many games within the same genre over and over, getting too old for that now.

To the devs. just make something unique or special otherwise donít bother. If this is to harsh sorry for that.

This is me this year. Have been focusing more on the gunpla hobby, so time spent playing on the tablet took a nosedive. Picked up Animus yesterday (or maybe the da before that) and i havent even fired it up yet. The last one i picked up that i really liked was Iron Marines.

But yeah, as far as AAA titles go, 2017 has been the most fruitful so far.

Exact-Psience My 2014 Top 10 Games of the Year: Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, Hearthstone, VVVVVV, Battleheart Legacy, Wayward Souls, Bug Heroes 2, Powerpuff Girls Defenders of Townsville, Deep Loot, Monument Valley, Bioshock Honorable Mentions: Traps N Gemstones, Bardbarian, Goblin Sword

Bit harsh ! I dont mind if theres lots of platformers or shoot em ups. I'm still an app hoarder BUT i do have to keep playing these new games, to me its like the old days where i would pick up 5 or so games a week, took a nosedive for a while (not the same quality) but recently theres been quite a few games i'll buy every week again.

Just got so much variety on my phone, love it. Been good some of the 'surprises' we've had lately as well
