I usually start these game of the year lists with a sarcastic blurb about how everybody makes them. But you know what? This year sucked. I can’t think of a better time to celebrate the actual good things we’ve experienced.
It’s that time of year again where every single person, alien and dog creates an end of the year style list, contributing to an ever-growing pile of lists that slowly but surely dilute the increasing pool of game of the year awards. Progressively draining away the significance of the term until it will eventually become a meaningless concept to join the cemetery of dead things that will somehow be blamed on young people despite the fact that the age of the average gamer is 35!
2018 is almost over so its just about time to bring out the wine, party poppers, and pointy hats to celebrate the start of the new year. It’s also about that time when every single video game reviewer and blogger on the face of the planet makes a fancy list of their favorite games and biggest disappointments. Then proceeds to spam your social media with them!
