Games of the Years
I've been cranking on a game spreadsheet for a number of years now and it's finally gotten robust enough that I could sort and filter it to show various neat things
I thought it'd be fun to see what my single favorite game of the year was from every year's slate I have play history with and this is what it spit out.
1 game per release year (some of these of these I didn't play till way later), some years have zero if I haven't played anything yet. I tried to stick to first United States release year for platforms I would have had access to (if I was around myself) when there was multiple possible dates. Usually that defaults to US Arcade releases for 80's stuff.
As an aside I don't buy the notion that games are a "young medium" anymore. Maybe they aren't old, but we're what?.... in Decade 5 now?... That's not young either.
