Forums - Gaming Discussion - Top 5 games of 2023

Idk if there's been other threads about everyone's respective top 5 games of the year, so feel free to share!

My top 5 games of 2023 have to be:

1. Baldur's Gate 3
2. Hi-Fi Rush 
3. Resident Evil 4
4. System Shock Remake
5. Pizza Tower

After further deliberation, I'm actually dropping Mario RPG just barely out of my top 5 and adding Pizza Tower!
