My photo blogging 2016 recap

Due to job search and other things I was able to post fewer photographs than I desired. Here you can find a retrospective of the photos I posted during 2016.

Game of the Year: Destiny

Destiny has been around a while but it was still my most played game of the year. It received negative of critique but has improved significantly over the years. I do not have too much time to play games and Destiny is enjoyable as bite-sized chunks: a couple of crucible matches, a strike, a mission, or half an hour of patrolling is easy to fit in the schedule. I even went through the trouble of getting the maximum rank Iron Banner after the Rise of Iron release.

Disappointment of the Year: Tom Clancy’s The Division

I was looking forward to Tom Clancy’s The Division, and the game felt good at first. Unfortunately, the gameplay soon became tedious with bullet sponge and a significant amount of grind required to play effectively, so I quit playing after finishing all the story missions. I returned to the game briefly to check the DLC, and the 1.4 update but despite the improvements was I not motivated enough keep playing. Despite its shortcomings, The Division is one of the best-looking games on Xbox One, and I am planning to do a couple of screenshot posts in the future.
