Listmas 2017: The Duck’s 2017 Gaming List

Merry Listmas, dear readers!  With the end of the year growing ever nearer, I thought it would be fun to look back on all the games I had played in 2017.  It’s been a great year for gaming, not to mention an extremely productive one.  I mean, wowie!  Fifteen games?  How did I manage that!
