Seven games in Seven Days


 I wanted to use some of Christmas break to catch up on video games I didn't have time to play over the year. I set myself the following goal - play seven games in seven days.

I figured it would be interesting to have my followers on twitter give input into which games I should play, so I did a quick survey. Here are the results.


I played six of the top seven games. Unfortunately I had some technical problems with Borderlands 2, so I substituted in The Walking Dead which should have been on my list anyway!

I didn’t complete all of these games, I played them long enough to get a feel for the overall design. This is pretty typical for game designers, we’d love to complete every game we play, but it’s more important to widely survey a bunch of games. Here are my quick thoughts from most voted to least.

Over the next week I’m going to post one mini-review each day talking about my experience with each of these games. Each game will also get an award for whatever struck me most about that game. We’ll call these awards The Christinas :P
