This year, I will be posting a list of my 50 favorite games of all time. I think. It's a little weird because I haven't got much new to list this time, and many of the games near the bottom are on borrowed time at this point, but I still had a hard time settling on a ranking. It feels a bit like a list of my 35 favorite games of all time, but in an order I'm unsure about and with 15 bonus entries at the end. Anyway.

(edit: That was kinda edgy, sorry about that. I'm actually pretty happy with how the list turned out, all in all.)
