My Most Important Video Games of the Decade: #6 – #4

Three more games added to my best of the decade list? Don’t mind if I do. I almost felt bad about how many games that appear on this list ended up being first person shooters. But ended up brushing those concerns under the rug pretty quickly. Video Games are delivery method for story telling for me, and what better way is there to effectively convey story than through a genre everyone understands all too well.

At this point, there is very little teaching required to get players up to speed when playing first person shooters. In general, they all control pretty much the same, especially on console where Call of Duty pretty much set the standard for how these games control. Going back and playing Halo again was a real mind bending experience after being so used to playing these games a certain way.

But I’m getting away from the point, let’s get back into this list.

Here’s  #15, #14 and #13

Here are #12, #11 and #10

And here’s #9, #8 and #7

Wooderon’s favourite Video Games of 2019 – #1

With this post ends another year. It’s been an odd one for me personally, I’ve had a lot of major changes in my life this year, not all of them necessarily for the better. But, as usually, my self imposed ritual of writing top ten lists for the final days of the year has reinvigorated me to start writing on a more regular schedule in beginning of 2020. I just hope my work habits allow me the time to keep up.

I have some things planned for January, which I’ll probably address a little more a the end of this post. But for now, let’s get a bow on this thing.

Oh, one more thing. If you want to see my top ten video games of 2019 list in its entirety, then just click this link.

Wooderon’s favourite Video Games of 2019 – #5

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.
