Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays to all. I am finally feeling a little more refreshed and coming to realise that I still have entries on this list I have not finished. So while I spend this festive day in a mixture of mild panic and alcoholism, enjoy this entry on my video games top ten list. One I’m kind of worried might be affected by how recently I have been playing it. But hey, I’ll do that revamp list in twelve months and make everything better.
Today’s game was originally a bit higher up the list. It’s weird, leading up to the release of this game, I have had a bee in my bonnet about how the fan base has been reacting to it. And as a result, I can’t get it out of my mind that I’m being overly lenient towards it as a result of that fact.
In the end though, this hasn’t been my favourite game in the franchise. That doesn’t mean that there is enough good will there for me to still enjoy it anyway, even if it slipped a couple places down the list.
Today’s game is one I can’t seem to go a year without talking about in some from come these ends of year celebrations. I’m aware this is my person list and I’m free to put whatever the hell I want into it, but I am a weird sticker for my own rules when it comes to posts like these. And it pains me to break these rules when it happens.
Either way, this is a game I spent significant time with this year and I would be remiss if I didn’t highlight it and give it the attention it deserves.
