Isn't the best old game category used for exactly this? Games that came out before this year, but were supported this year with free updates/dlc? Stuff like Overwatch, Stardew Valley, GTA 5, etc.. I personally just don't think you should be putting a game that didn't release this year on a list meant for games that did come out this year.

Thanks for being super generous dude! Maybe someday when I'm in a better situation I'll do the same

Anyways, I fully suspect Brad would eat them, and then blame Dan because everybody would believe that in a heartbeat lol

I miss the episodic nature. I don't play these games myself, but I really enjoyed watching people play the game throughout the entire year and it really helped it stay fresh in everybody's mind. Watching a Hitman video every few weeks instead of a bunch within a week or two also kept it from getting a little stale to me.

Rooster Teeth/Achievement Hunter is my favorite when it comes to group content. They produce so much damn content it is insane. I remember when there were less than 10 people in the company, and now there are over 400. The amount of growth they've gone through will never stop amazing me.

I actually haven't played most of these games, but have watched a lot of videos on YouTube from them.

  1. Super Mario Maker (the only one of these that I still occasionally watch people play, and I actually want to buy for myself. Still can't believe the creative and fun levels people have made with this toolset.)
  2. XCOM: Enemy Unknown (watched a YouTuber play a full campaign on release and another one with the expansion. Highly entertaining.)
  3. The Last of Us (loved the story, didn't really like the stealth segments. Multiplayer is highly underrated in this game as well.)
  4. GTA 4 (never finished the story mode. Had some crazy fun multiplayer modes that led to some of the best multiplayer moments ever.)
  5. Uncharted 2 (just a dumb fun action movie with likable characters and good multiplayer due to the climbing and traversal.)
  6. Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor (combat was pretty enjoyable and the nemesis system was a very cool idea I wish more games would use.)
  7. Mass Effect 2 (interesting characters were the star here. Combat got a little better too and the mako segments were removed thank god.)
  8. The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim (the only game I have ever bought a strategy guide for. I really enjoyed the 20 hours I played of it, but got busy and never returned to it. I still think about buying it on Steam every time it's on sale, but know I shouldn't because I will get addicted to that.)
  9. Hitman (loved Giantbomb's coverage of this game, and some YouTubers playing the elusive target missions. Not the kind of game I ever want to play myself, but a pretty good game to watch)
  10. PUBG (another game I didn't want to play but liked watching others play. Watching the same group play for months and slowly get better was pretty cool. When they eventually got a chicken dinner, I actually loudly exclaimed YES because I was so invested. I know that is a little weird, but I can't recall that happening even while playing games myself.

Honestly the only games that were easy for me to decide their placement was Mario Maker and XCOM. All of the others could switched around and it wouldn't make that big of a difference to me.

Well if I hadn't already downloaded the launcher for Fortnite, this would've gotten me to do it. Getting a free game every 2 weeks is awesome, and the first two are both games I want so I'm happy. Steam finally having some big competition will be nice, and while the store is definitely rough right now, I'm sure they will improve it. Also they got Supergiant's new game Hades on there exclusively, so there is at least one game I am guaranteed to buy when it is finished.

Just look up smash for beginners on YouTube. Having visuals helps a lot
