As I am a gamer for about 30 years now, I thought I give a list with my games for each year. As I have for many games no recollection when I played them (often years after release) it is sorted by release year. I give the ranking I have for them *this* year and link to my mini-review if available.

So here is my game of the year list for each year:

Arkanoid (DOS)1986#139
NetHack (Linux)1987#128
Battle Chess (DOS)1988#73
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure (DOS)1989#68
The Secret of Monkey Island (DOS)1990#18
Supaplex (DOS)1991#29
Pinball Dreams (DOS)1992#44
Day of the Tentacle (DOS)1993#15
UFO: Enemy Unknown (DOS)1994#22
Star Wars: Dark Forces (DOS)1995#11
Quake (DOS)1996#76
Doom 64 (Switch/Stadia)1997#52
Baldur's Gate (Windows/Switch)1998#13
Heroes of Might and Magic III (Windows)1999#1
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (3DS)2000#31
Wizardry: Tale of the Forsaken Land (PS2)2001#14

Demon’s Souls (PS3)2009#10
Xenoblade Chronicles (Wii/Switch)2010#7
Pandora's Tower (Wii)2011#5
Kid Icarus: Uprising (3DS)2012#17
Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl (3DS)2013#6
Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth (3DS)2014#16
Pillars of Eternity (Linux/Switch)2015#21
Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE (WiiU/Switch)2016#4
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch)2017#12
Dragon Quest Builders 2 (Switch)2018#2
Ring Fit Adventure (Switch)2019#48
Baldur’s Gate III (early access, Stadia)2020#39

Remember: this is just my personal list, and there are so many games I haven't played yet. I notice in the past time more recent titles have started to get into my list, a sign I start to play more often again. Also, all games here I do like, even if they are down in the ranking. There are just a lot of games, that I think are better. Platforms listed are the ones I played the game on, not all available platforms.

Baldur's Gate III is early access, so it might seem unfair it taking the 2020 spot. In that case wins Spiritfarer for 2020, which I played on Switch and is in my list on #42.

I hope you enjoy my personal GOTY list.

3DS-FC: 4511-1768-7903 (Mii-Name: Mnementh), Nintendo-Network-ID: Mnementh, Switch: SW-7706-3819-9381 (Mnementh)

my greatest games: 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 

10 years greatest game event!
