The fun and magic of RimWorld immediately swept me off my feet. It’s not a better game than Dwarf Fortress per-se, but it has a great clean look and is way more accessible to the modern gamer than DF ever will be (Until the Steam release).
2. Yakuza 0
I finally gave in to Ian’s incessant pestering that I play this game. I can’t publicly say he’s right about anything, but this may be the exception. Gripping story, fun gameplay, and great graphics. Yakuza 0 is a modern classic.
Animal Crossing is very near and dear to my heart. The simple joy I get from playing these games is like nothing else. And even despite some shortcomings the latest entry in the series is the best yet.
My Metal Gear journey started all the way back in 2015 with Metal Gear for the MSX. Now seven games later I can finally say I’ve played Metal Gear. Also probably the best stealth game.
A game that I’ve been obsessed with for years and I finally play it! Dwarf Fortress is another game that is near and dear, but this year it also led me to an incredible realization, I like roguelikes...
Never have I played a game that so perfectly nails the aesthetic it’s going for. Even if the story isn’t living up, just inhabiting the world is enough for me.
Not much to say here other than I played all the DOOM games and this is the best. So many good levels and so many good WADs.
This game certainly shocked my system. Fantastic atmosphere, okay controls, and great design. I honestly wish I could forget the game just to replay it.
ROCK AND STONE! Karen and I love playing this game together. The dwarves rule, the missions are fun, and lots of good unlockables.
I spent the last year really getting into games I normally wouldn’t and it’s helped to expand my tastes a lot. ELEX isn’t going to win any awards, but it has some great systems and world building that are certainly worth the time.
