Ah, films! I forgot about those. Despite how it may seem by the relative lack of film reviews/articles on the blog front this year, I’ve actually seen many, even outside of the March of the Movies block. 75 films, to be exact (including some online content that Letterboxd recognizes as “film”). Although last year I saw “over 100,” so maybe I have been slipping somewhat…
Regardless, as it is within my nature to chronicle, sort, and analyze, it is the time of year in which I can look back and reminisce on the best of what I indulged in. While compiling this list, I found that there were quite a few within a specific range of quality that made it somewhat hard to choose between the middle portions, so assume they’re all pretty even in my head (meaning “Very good”). Yet the top spot is the top choice without question, so don’t tune out too quickly!

Lookie here! I haven’t done one of these types of posts in a little while. Now that I am out of games journalism, I’m free to sort of peruse my way through whatever I care to try out at any given time. Even so, I didn’t play too many games this year—a little over twenty was the final count. Even so, there were more than enough titles played that I think are worth shouting out. And because content is content, this at-one-point-yearly list shall see life anew.
Disclaimer: Please note that this is not a traditional “Top 10 Best Video Games of [Year]” list. Rather, this is a list of the best video games I played in 2022, as in it did not have to be released this calendar year to make it, only that I had to have finished (a majority of) it in 2022.

What an eventful last couple weeks it has been. My sincere apologies for the delay in reviewing these episodes. It seems to have been ordained by some higher power that I am not deserving of gaining access to a workable laptop computer. Nevertheless, I will spare you the details and simply get on to what you’re more likely here for.
Seeing as I have three episodes here to review, I will split these up into groups and review them individually (but won’t go into too much detail). As will become obvious when the reviews begin, the relevancy of these episodes will heavily depend on their recency.

It’s a double whammy of unfortunate circumstances this week for me. My laptop troubles are continuing to haunt me (long story), and on top of that, some cold-like symptoms have found refuge within since the beginning of the week. So I’m writing this with limited battery capacity and limited nostril clearance.
This, combined with the contents of Aharen-san‘s seventh episode itself, will force me to keep this rather curt.

Have you noticed that I have a certain theme when it comes to picking cover images? I just like when Aharen and Raidou are close. In this case, it’s funnier.
Aharen-san‘s second episode was slightly within the realm of what I expected as a follow-up to the debut. While they did introduce a new character into the mix, she did not take up a majority of the episode’s runtime (thankfully). Nevertheless, the somewhat lackluster aura that transfixed itself to the prior episode is back here in full force.

2021 was one full of video games for me, personally. Working full-time for KeenGamer for a large majority of the year meant I didn’t have too much time to really focus on anything else, outside of perhaps attending Twitch streams or setting aside time to watch films with friends. In part because of the latter, as well as my annual March of the Movies block, I saw over 100 films during the course of 2021, which allows me to be able to comprise a list of the best of the best. Who doesn’t love a good Top 10?
For those who didn’t register the title of the post, this is a Top 10 of the films I viewed during the course of 2021, not films specifically released in 2021. Frankly, I don’t think I could even list ten films I watched that released in 2021… Nevertheless, there will be a (yeah, singular) film from 2021 on this list, so I suppose that counts for something.
I will also note that I’ve made individual posts or reviews for most of the films that will be listed here, so this will be pretty to-the-point. Should people want to know more, I’ll link to the place where more of my stupid words are available in a non-stupid fashion.

Video games boiled down to what I reviewed for my main job. Anime was, outside of December, practically nonexistent. Football remained steady, but the output of football-related content on the blog was, well, out of bounds. When all else plundered, films continued to pile up in 2020, and while reviews weren’t plentiful outside the 2020 March of the Movies, it still remained an enjoyable splurge back into the blogspace. In general, films remained a constant in a changing 2020 for me personally. 100 films (including comedy specials and shorts) were viewed by me in 2020—10 of those are bound to be good, right?
