  1. Literally none of these games were ever on my radar. Then again, this was a very slow year for games that I would be interested in. If not for the Steam Deck, I don’t think I would have bought a single game this year.

    Surprised the popular Elden Ring didn’t make this list, I was expecting that game to literally steal the show.

    Next year seems promising though. With games like Zelda BOTW 2, Forspoken, and Street Fighter 6

  2. Why did Pincoccsouls win the best Sony award? Nobody said anything about it being PlayStation exclusive, plus it’s supposedly a day one release for Xbox game pass.
