2020 Hindsight

You can watch this series via the YouTube playlist or Twitch highlights (for the main event and peripheral episodes)!

I've found streaming to provide a good motivation to actually finish video games — something I have been somewhat inconsistent at in the past.

In 2020, I decided to devote my weekend streams (and some weeknight streams) to playing through and finishing games/series I had never finished, and in some cases never or barely touched whatsoever.

What follows is the list of games I played during the weekends throughout the year for this event.

Peripheral Vision

These were additional games played during weeknights. They were often (not always) related to games played on the weekends — for example, I played Heretic at roughly the same time as Hexen, and all 5 mainline DMC games took place during May (for the Devil MAY Cry subfeature).
