Yeah, I wanted to put a few JRPGs on there because of Katherine, but I know nothing about JRPGs and so I couldn’t name one from this year.
Crap. I forgot Sin was an official writer now. That changes EVERYTHING.
To be honest, with all the staff changes I have basically no idea what anyone likes now, except for the JRPGs thing.
In previous years I could have relied on John for a few puzzle and adventure games at least.
I haven’t watched a single RPS video and so I have no idea what 1/3rd of the team like. In fact, I’d forgotten they existed and had a vote, so that might tempt me to stick in some game that’s good for streaming or multiplayer… if I knew any of them.
I don’t read any of the guides, so that’s another 20% i don’t know.
I also am torn between putting games that I think will be chosen, and putting games that I think are / will be good. I think there’s a high chance of a Yakuza game, but I find them a bit icky and so don’t really want them to be on the list. Same goes for a couple of other obvious picks.
Plus, just picking all the Bestest Bests would be dull.
On the plus side, the Advent Calendar has made me look back through all the reviews and caused me to spot half a dozen that I’d missed, and several of them have gone on the wishlist.
