Our Review This title’s not going to be for everyone, but even though it’s been out for quite some time now, I still pop in pretty regularly. Well, almost daily for my login rewards, but also just to put a few levels on my primary unit every weekend or two. I’ve done just about everything the game has to offer, but I enjoy it enough that I keep coming back to it.
Our Review This one is something of a sentimental pick for me, because while it is not my favorite release of the Uncharted games, it was a satisfying conclusion to an absolute favorite video game series of mine. It’s one of those few games that I went back to for more (and it, like Grand Kingdom was featured in Beeps and Beers from me this year).
Our Review This guy just barely made the cut this year with such a late release, but I am very comfortable with this game’s buddy approach to storytelling. It won’t go down as my favorite Final Fantasy title of all time, but great production values and plenty of fun systems had me spending a lot of time with this one.
Our Review This one narrowly beats out Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence – Ascension for me. Objectively speaking, Nobunaga is the better game, with a little more polish and some nice quality of life features missing from Romance. But this is my personal list, and I have always had a personal preference towards the characters and setting of the Romance series, so it gets the nod here.
Our Review Just narrowly edging out BlazBlue: Central Fiction for my fighter of the year (and dominating the overly rushed Street Fighter V), Guilty Gear offers incredibly slick graphics and gameplay making it best-in-class for the genre this year.
