Edited By MajorMitch • @slag: Thanks Slag! I definitely think a number of games got lost in the shuffle this year, and that's probably no more true anywhere else than on Steam. It wouldn't surprise me if folks like Supergiant are struggling more now than a few years ago, but I clearly think Pyre is rad and worth playing :)As for Getting Over It, I still haven't figured out the controls for QWOP (a game I do NOT like), but was moving pretty well within minutes of starting this game. To me it wasn't that difficult to get a handle on the controls, but that could a varying mileage sort of thing.About 2017, it's a lot of smaller things that add up to make it not immediately one of my very favorite years for games... though to be clear I do think it's a very good year for games, and I admittedly haven't sat down and tried to rank years or anything. First, I think a lot of other years are maybe better than others give them credit for. We heard a lot this year how there were "too many games," and I think that's true, but I think that's also true most other years. If anything, comparing directly to 2016, 2017 had less games I was interested in playing, and I also had more games I wanted to showcase on my top 10 last year than this year. 2003, 2005, and 2008 are some other years I remember off the top of my head having well more than 10 games I really, really liked. So maybe I value some other years more than most folks.That kind of leads into the other big thing for me which is that some of the games from this year that are held up among the greatest ever didn't hit me as hard as they seem to most people. Games like PUBG, Mario Odyssey, Horizon, Nier Automata, Edith Finch, etc. were all games I enjoyed, but not on the level most seem to. That's where I think it gets into a lot of personal taste stuff, and makes me feel like I don't have a long list of games I truly love from this year. I remember a similar thing happening in 2004 (which I also remember people saying at the time was one of the best years ever) with MGS3, GTA San Andreas, Halo 2, and Half-Life 2 coming out, all games most people loved but I didn't. Though, I'd probably take 2017 over that personally :)Anyway, I feel like I'm already rambling, and it probably sounds more negative than I really feel, which is not negative at all. And I would probably need to deep-dive into a bunch of different games (from this year and other years) to explain any better at this point! The tl;dr is along the lines of games from previous years maybe connected with me more, and games from this year maybe connected with me less, than a lot of other folks.Maybe that conveys that sentiment a little better!
