I've played through many games for the first time this year (for my standards, at least), but there were very few of them that had a big enough impact on me to make the list. What new additions did make it in, though, are very appreciated, because at this point my rankings are becoming pretty well established, which is a nice way to say stale and boring. Anyways, let's get into the list.
