Such a bummer. Always felt like Telltale was confused about what people enjoyed about their games. I still remember what a breath of fresh air The Walking Dead season 1 was in an era where player choice affecting a story in meaningful, nuanced ways was a new concept, but instead of continuing to push that concept forward, they decided to go into full factory production mode on a creative medium, which... is almost never a good idea.

The artists and writers working there all seemed to be doing the very best they could with what they had to work with, and I hope they can all land safely somewhere working on more interesting projects than they would have at Telltale.

Even more than blowing up the moon out of nowhere, I can't wait for their reaction to Piccolo having a clothes beam because sure why not:

Piccolo is the best. DBZ is the best. This podcast is the best.

Danny DeVito, and especially DeVito in Sunny, is a national treasure and too good for this world.

The problem with Horizon for me, and I think the GB dudes as well, is that while it is an incredibly well made game, it's not a particularly memorable one. I can't say it did any one thing better than any other open world game I've ever played. The graphics sure, but that on it's own isn't enough for me to want to invest 40+ hours in beating it. I tried twice this year to let it get its hooks into me and both times, about 12 hours in, I fell off (and ended up playing a bunch more Zelda instead ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).

Either way who cares. It's a dumb, arbitrary list, made even dumber and more arbitrary by the sheer volume of great games this year.

@adamlcook: I don't know, I mean Leia didn't die, sure, but to say she didn't pass the torch in her own way is kinda silly. At the end, when Po tells everyone to follow the crystal critters out of the cave, she literally says "Don't look at me, follow him". It's not as clean as "Luke dies and Rei takes the Jedi texts", but it's pretty dang clear to me that she wouldn't be leading the resistance in the next movie either way. Or at least she would be leader only in name, with the next generation of rebels calling the shots.

The movie had problems, but that part I felt pretty good about, actually. But yeah, we'll have to see how they handle it in the next one.

Horizon: Zero Dawn seems to show as a 2016 game in the search results list, but shows the correct date on the actual wiki page. Hooray weird little things!

PS4: Aloy, Bloodborne default dude, Daddy Kratos maybe?

Switch: Marth? BotW Link? Xenoblade character?

Xbox: Uhh, someone from Killer Instinct, maybe? I seriously can't think of any exclusive characters that'd make any sense at all... Cuphead?

It absolutely should, I think. Times are changing, every game released today is supported and made better long after they come out, whether they're released in early access or not. Even story based games like Final Fantasy XV are getting huge updates after release to flesh out the plot and improve gameplay in campaigns that many players may have already finished. I'm not saying that's good or bad, but it is different.

If the gang feels like they played and enjoyed what's there enough for it to be in the 10 best games of the year, I don't know why that kind of technicality should matter. Between PUBG and Dead Cells, I think this is the year early access as a term became totally meaningless.
