Years in Review

There are a ton of video games out there that are worth your time and hard earned money and we have covered a lot of them over the years. There are so many in fact that it can be very difficult to decide what to play next! Traditionally, we have capped off each year by producing a series of Top 10 videos from each member of the staff that highlight the games that we each consider to be the best of the best. From those lists, we developed a point system and used it to find a general consensus of what we, as a group, consider to be the best games of the year.

You can use the dropdown below to see the list from each year. The button below each list will bring up the playlist for that year which features our individual videos!
