Earlier this morning, Capcom streamed the first presentation of the year that fits the “Nintendo Direct” description. It’s actually kind of weird that it wasn’t a proper Direct, considering it was for information on the Nintendo Switch exclusive title Monster Hunter Rise. But anyway, let’s talk about the presentation, what I liked, what I didn’t, and maybe some of the news itself.
I’m pretty sure most people would agree that this has not been a very good year. On the plus side though, there has been a surprisingly large amount of really good video games to keep us distracted from everything else. The following list is my ten favorite games of the year. Some of these choices might seem weird, in fact there’s one towards the top of the list that I kind of doubt you’re going to see on too many other people’s lists at all. But that’s why it’s my list of favorites, and not me trying to make an objective argument for each one.
