2015 in Video Games

This year has been pretty productive when it came down to reaching my goal of completing 1 game a month(12 overall). I think i did pretty well with total of 10. The last few years my ability to actually beat a game(or stick with it until i did) has been going downhill; this year i really made an effort to follow through. I plan to do the same this coming 2016! Yoshi's Wolly World is a recent completion and i've yet to have the chance to make something related; but i'll update accordingly.

The other part of this goal was to make something related to each game(that i completed). Chances are you already know that i'm a yarn crafter(crochet/knit). For some i created a pattern, for others i used existing ones and adapted them to my needs. I'm linking my project page(on ravelry) and adding any other related links applicable. For a more interesting and thorough look at all the projects, check out the video below.
