  1. QOTW: Unlike most years I was actually able to play a few games that qualify for this QOTW, on account of being laid off in January. Horizon: Forbidden West, while not as engaging as Zero Dawn, was still a mostly enjoyable experience, with the notable exception of the rubberband racing side quest. I’m excited to see what the new Nemesis has in store for the third game.
    Runner up Rainbow 6: Extraction was still a great game that I wish I could play more of, I just don’t have regular free time to dedicate to it anymore and I don’t want to hold back the squad.

  2. My GOTHY is Elden Ring, hands-down… it’s been the best community gaming experience of my life, since everyone I know has had a different journey and has made different discoveries. By far the best part has been playing side-by-side with my friend in her living room, on two monitors, tackling the same dungeons and bosses simultaneously and exchanging tips and “oh my god did you see that”s as we struggle through together. Never ever thought I could handle a souls game but bringing the “discovery around every corner of a beautiful world” element from BOTW was all that I needed to hook me. I’m taking it slow and loving every second of it.

  3. Elden Ring was so good that I’ve been playing games less since I beat it. Nothing else for now can compare
