It’s that time of year again! With my gaming year wrapping down, with nearly *80* games played, it’s time to check out some of the most notable titles I tried. This is all based around my gaming year, not games released this year, so maybe you’ll learn of a few classics you never knew about. And yes, if you saw my last list, you know what my fave game of the year is, but there was some surprising last minute contenders. Sinking Island could easily sneak into the bottom five, but two games (!) blindsided me and could have taken top five spots if I got to them earlier. Memoria and This Is The Police are both shockingly good games well worth your money, and I will be writing on them down the line. But that’s for later, so let’s stick to the topic at hand.
I have multiple categories, some self explanatory (best looking, best sound design, ect), and others more personal (fave guilty pleasure, biggest surprise, ect). Along with my writing on each category winner, I’ll have a list of honorable mentions below, so please don’t forget to look up those games in your spare time! A lot of fantastic titles didn’t make the cut this year, and only because I played *so fucking many* of them.
