Each game on this list so far has managed to do something very different in the realm of game design. For #5, we go in the opposite direction — with a game that perfectly mirrors old school design.
The next game on my top 10 countdown should be a given considering my love of the Blackwell series, and that is the latest game from Wadjet Eye Games.
My #7 game this year is the first time that I really enjoyed an open world survival game, probably due to the game downplaying that whole survival thing.
For #8 this year, we turn to an indie game whose mission was to create an action RPG that anyone could enjoy.
