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.

Wooderon’s Favourite Video Games of 2019 – #10

The talk on the street leading up to the end of 2019 is that it’s been a pretty weak year for video games. Personally, I feel like this is a pretty ridiculous statement. Whilst compiling this list, I ended up with a shortlist of about 14 games I really enjoyed, as well as six or seven games I was really bummed out I could never get around to. And I’m sure at least two of those would have snuck onto the list also.

It ends up being the same story as least year for me, only cranked up another level. Moving out on my own, as well as starting a new job, I’ve had way less money and time to purchase and play all of the games I was interested in playing this year. That, plus live games like Destiny and Overwatch continued to carve out a significant chunk of my time, as the number of live games I like continues to grow.

I can only list what I’ve played though, and I’m sure that once I catch up, this list might change. As with my anime list, this top ten is not one of quality or craftsmanship, rather it’s a list of the games that meant the most to me this year on a personal level, either through pure enjoyment or whatever other reason I blather on about on the day:
