How I spent my time (with video games) in 2017

The 2016 version of this post focused entirely on Nintendo 3DS games. There was a good reason for that: aside from a few "retro" titles, I only played 3DS games that year.

That certainly wasn't the case in 2017. Of the 20 titles listed below, only seven are 3DS releases. Five others are Switch games, three are for Vita, and the rest are divided between the Famicom, GameBoy, DS, and Wii.

With that out of the way, here are the games I put the most time into over the last 12 months:
  • Dragon Quest VII (3DS)--43 hours, 50 minutes
  • Mother (Famicom)--23 hours 30 minutes
  • Opoona (Wii)--20 hours
  • Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World (3DS)--17 hours, 45 minutes
  • Golf Story (Switch)--17 hours, 15 minutes
  • Super Mario Odyssey (Switch)--16 hours, 45 minutes
  • Dragon Quest Builders (Vita)--12 hours
  • Miitopia (3DS)--10 hours, 45 minutes
  • Kirby: Planet Robobot (3DS)--9 hours
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch)--7 hours, 45 minutes

As strange as this may sound, I have a strong feeling 3DS, Switch, and Vita games will dominate the 2018 version of this post as well.

I don't expect the 3DS to lead the way as it did in 2017, though; if I had to guess, I'd say the Switch will move into the pole position this year, followed by the 3DS and then the Vita.

If you know how much time you spent with various games in 2017, please share the details in the comments section that follows.
