Another year, another list of fabulous PC games.
This year’s collection was compiled via the combined votes of all the current permanent RPS staff: Graham, Alice Bee, Alice L, Alice O, Astrid, Dave, Katharine, Matt, Matthew, Nate, Ollie and Sin.
Each voter was given 10 points to spend as they wished. They could put ten points into one game, or one point each into ten different games. We then performed the grim work of speaking to one another in order to separate any ties.
In this year’s list, Outer Wilds was a clear winner from early on in the voting. The harder discussion happened at the bottom of the table, where games like Six Ages, QT and Knights And Bikes were close to squeezing in. Other games which received votes but couldn’t fit in the calendar were Baba Is You, What The Golf, Katana Zero and Snakeybus.
Every December I (this is Graham – hi) hear people saying that the ending year hadn’t been a good one for games, and every year I look at our Advent Calendar and think they must be mad. There were some all-time greats released in 2019.
