Conquered Games of 2018

Backlog–I still hate the word. It should be wiped out of every gamer’s mind. The word invokes a negative connotation; it threatens a game’s life. Video games are my hobby and I want more positivity in my life. I cherish the moments when I decimate the final boss, find every hidden secret in a level, or even participating in short alpha/beta programs. I never want to forget these moments, and the best way for me to keep track is with a list.

I started my Conquered Games list in 2013 to aid in understanding my gaming habits, time constraints, and accomplishments. This list is not meant to show how quickly I can beat a game or prove that I game too much/little. My list is meant to be something positive for me to look back on.

Without further adieu,


  • 01/17/18 – Killer is Dead: Nightmare Edition
  • 01/27/18 – Momodora: Reverie Under The Moonlight


  • 02/02/18 – PUSH
  • 02/15/18 – Owlboy
  • 02/18/18 – Mirage: Illusions
  • 02/28/18 – Into The Breach


  • 03/03/18 – Bayonetta


  • 04/05/18 – Nier: Automata


  • 05/29/18 – God of War


  • 06/16/18 – Axiom Verge
  • 06/23/18 – Ori and the Blind Forest


  • 08/19/18 – Enter the Gungeon


  • 10/25/18 – Marvel’s: Spider-Man


  • 12/03/18 – Hitman 2
  • 12/05/18 – Tetris Effect
  • 12/13/18 – Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep 0.2
  • 12/31/18 – Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance

In total, I conquered 17 unique video games in 2018.


I am very excited to witness what this year has to offer. I look forward to all the new releases and titles I will conquer. Most story driven games are in my horizon; this may be the year of the role playing game genre for me. 2019 is shaping up to be another great year for video games.


Welcome Back

Good evening,

Welcome, one and all. I’ve decided that it was time to return to See Things in a New Lightford. If you’ve followed my more recent work, I was writing at The Lightford Meta. I decided to shutdown my previous website since I wasn’t using it enough. Sure, it didn’t have ads, which was nice, but when you pay for something, it’s better to actually use said product. I didn’t write enough over there so I thought I’d return to my old website.

What’s changing? Nothing. Maybe less editing; I haven’t decided yet. I may ask others to edit my work, but time is not too important in regards to posts. If I edit my own work, it does take a little longer to finish… We shall see what happens.

My writing style is much the same, if not worse. I need to get in the habit of writing, and what’s a better way to start then write this post.

Beware, I don’t write about only video games anymore. I plan to write about video games, sports, music, existential crisis, fiction, and much more. Whatever is on my mind, I’ll basically write it here for all to read. One thing I don’t plan on skimping on is my research. I love the research aspects of writing.

Topics I would like to cover on here someday:

The Gaming Culture Changed Me – The fact that video games as gifts mean less than nothing

A Ballad for Psyduck – The only greatest Pokemon to ever exist

The Lightning Affect: Stockholm Syndrome – Final Fantasy XII’s Lightning is one character you shouldn’t forget

Poetry Using Music – How poetry is formed due to music

Too Much Football – The amount of football leagues is about to double

My Writing Process – Discuss a novel I’m working on and how I create the story through lore

Thanks for reading!
