Well, it's a new year and I'm back again with another best-of retrospective. This go round, we'll be taking another 12-year look-back, at the best games of 2009, and unlike with the last one, I'm happy to be able to deliver it in a more timely, and thus, sensible fashion. 2009 was another great year for games. But really though, aren't they all, just about? Let's just say, it wasn't any slouch. Please join me as I take a look back at some of the following reasons why.
As you might have noticed by now, I have kind of a thing for gaming retrospectives. I also love anything having to do with the number 12. For those reasons, I've decided to debut a new retrospective series where I take a look back at the best games from 12 years ago. In the case of this particular article, the year 2008. Now you may be thinking, "it's the end of 2021, shouldn't this article be about 2009 or even 2010?" And the answer is, I'm going back a full 12 years (and several months). I also meant to post this months ago but got a bit sidetracked. Just go with it. 2008 was a special year for gaming that saw a number of truly exceptional titles grace the various consoles of the day. Please join me as I look back at what I feel were 12 of the absolute best.
It's so nice to be out of 2020. Between the pandemic and a multitude of various other reasons, it was surely a year most people would sooner forget. But that being said, 2020 wasn't actually a total loss. Despite several titles having to see their release dates pushed back due to the challenges of working through social distancing and quarantines, it was overall a pretty fantastic year for video games. Don't believe us? Well, just read on and see for yourself as we recap 12 of the very brightest spots in an otherwise pretty dark year.
With the end of 2019, the 2010s also finally came to a close. And now that we've looked back on all the great games of 2019, it's time to take a look back at the decade as a whole and talk about the titles that really stood out as the very best of the best. It may have been a long 10 years, with lots of changes in the gaming world, but it was chock full of gaming experiences that were absolutely second to none. While it may have pained us to narrow so many fantastic games down to only a dozen, we have done exactly that, just for you. Here are our picks for the 12 best games of the 2010s:
Happy 2020! It's a new year once again (and a new decade as well), and that means it's time for another round-up of the best games from the previous 12 months. 2019 was another amazing 365 days of great games to play. So many great games, in fact, that narrowing down our choices to merely a select 12 proved particularly difficult this time around. In the end though, we were able to get it done, and now feel sufficiently confident in our selections. We hope you will too. So without further ado, 12/12 Games humbly presents, the 12 best games of 2019.
Happy 2019, everyone! Is it just us or do the years feel like they are flying by these days? Before we get too far into the new year, let's not forget to take a look back at the one that's just passed and make note of all the truly great gaming experiences we got out of it. As it turns out, 2018 was a pretty fantastic year for video games - and we have quite a bit of praise to heap on some of them. So without further ado, here are the 12 best games of 2018 (as presented by 12/12 Games).
Happy New Year! Wait, is 2017 over already? Well, that was a (bluish) blur! Since another year has come and gone, that means it is time once again for us to announce our picks for the top 12 greatest games to come out over the last 12 months. It wasn't an easy job, and it's a safe bet our selections won't resonate with everyone, but we feel pretty happy with them. So without further ado, we proudly present, the 12 best games of 2017.
Just like that, another year has come and gone. Now that 2016 is over, it's time to share our picks for the top 12 games from the last 12 months. As usual, the year offered up dozens of great titles to choose from and whittling down our list to a mere 12 was no easy task. However, we feel pretty good about our selections and we are fairly confident that you will agree with at least a few, if not several of them. So without further ado, we present to you, the 12 best games of 2016:
2015 is done. Actually it has been for a couple of weeks now. But it is far from forgotten. Especially in terms of all the superb games that it brought us. If we were to list every single one of them, there would be scores, if not hundreds, of beautiful, groundbreaking, highly entertaining titles. But this is a best-of list, so that means we have to limit things to only the very best. Therefore, with this being 12/12 Games, we thought it only appropriate to pick what we considered to be the 12 greatest games of 2015.
12/12 Games is the
