A time-honored tradition of the end of the year is the annual deluge of Top 10 lists. Everybody from all over the internet comes together to list off their picks for what the best games of the year were. It’s a great opportunity to remind yourself of what actually came out in the year. Everyone has different thoughts on what constitutes greatness, so the best way to do that is to compare and contrast. Enter Giant Bomb.
The best thing about their Top 10 of the year is that they get a very diverse group of people, ranging from critics, to journalists, to developers. They even got a WWE Superstar last year. I could honestly tell you to read all of them and call it a day, but if you’re looking for some especially interesting ones, I highly recommend Greg Kasavin’s, Zoe Quinn’s, and Nina Freeman’s as excellent starting points.
