Hardly definitive when you can update it every year. It's also quite fun!

Yeah, I guess you're right. Will be fun to compare it over the years to see what changed =P

Yeah, it sure is. It's crazy looking back at my 2014 list and realizing how crap it was though even back then I already knew it wasn't good enough, to be fair. Over the years it starts to become more interesting, and eventually you can get to the point where you're leaving out dozens of games you love as you begin to realize you love too many! And well, it's fun. I hope to see you there this year.

On-topic, nice to see so much Skyward Sword here.
