    5. Spyro Reignited Trilogy
    4. Monster Hunter World
    3. Spiderman 
    2. Super Smash Bros Ultimate
    1. God of War

    All of my favorite games this year were console games, and the three best of them are exclusives (because, surprise, actual effort is put into these).

    If you replace Spyro and Spiderman with Octopath Traveller and Ys 8 you’ve got my list  ;)

    Edit: I must admit I haven’t bought Dragon Quest 11 yet, I am pretty sure it would make my top 5 though. You know what, screw it, its on sale atm  ;)

    Do it! And I recommend turning on Super Hard Monsters if you like a challenge. The game is a cakewalk otherwise.

    Forgot to include this in the article, but I also really enjoyed Frostpunk.

    why u guys promoting this so much, its an ass game you musta got some money for it to do so cos its certainly not for its game play...... you guys should advocate for the return of marvel heroes omega not promote this trash tier of game!

    Not the words I would have chosen, but I really do wonder why this one specific mobile cashgrab is being promoted to this degree. It's not like other mobile games get much spotlight here.

    Are we just that hungry for a multiplayer superhero game that we'll accept anything?

    I write about what I play. That's all there is to it. There's no conspiracy here.

    Listen, it's one thing to have an opinion.  I, for one, have an opinion (most times) that no one agrees with.  You and they don't have to like opinions but that's what makes forums interesting.

    However, burying your head in the dirt and saying it's ok when there is actual theft going on... that's a WHOLE different story.  This is bait and switch which is akin to Theft.  This thread hasn't even focused on the other shenanigans that Bethesda/Fallout76 was involved in.  Those shenanigans combined with THESE shenanigans combine for some seriously bad optics. 

    Calling out people who've been here for 10 years plus and adding Mod's to it doesn't help the situation and doesn't bring meaningful discussion.

    Honestly, it'd be better if @MikeB and @SBFord did step in and gave you a time out.  I've had timeouts before and it's helped.  I haven't seen anything "personal" in their rebuttals (though towards the end some did get a bit pointed).

    So now you are starting a petition to get me banned cause my opinion offends you?  Is that how this site works?  A few of old, bitter vets hangout on some random website giving each others high five and when someone comes in they disagreed with they have a vote and the mods bow down to their vote?  Is that how this works? 
    No one has petitioned me to ban you, but I am making the decision to. You have made your disdain for our community here abundantly clear. Best of luck to you, but please do not return.
