      Glad to see Remnant up there, would have liked to see it higher but honestly I haven't played many (any?) of the games ahead of it so who knows!

      The only entry I don't agree with is Cities: Skylines 2. I don't feel it should be on the list. Honestly It shouldn't have been released this year.

      What a year for videogames!
      To my everlasting shame I haven't played any of these games this year.

      Hey there! It’s lists like these that remind me why I love gaming: there's always something new and exciting on the horizon that can appeal to any type of gamer. For those who enjoy the nostalgia and charm of simpler times, arcade games from https://playerschoose.com/category/arcade/ are a perfect fit. They bring us back to the basics of gaming—pure fun and challenge without the need for elaborate setups or narratives. Playing these games feels like a trip down memory lane and brings out that carefree joy that got many of us into gaming in the first place.
