Unlike the VGC greatest games event, this one is actually doable for me. I'm going to try to participate, and this post signifies that intent, as well as serving as a reminder. And I will NOT use this space to create my list, instead making a new post for extra VGC points.
Yep, just realized this may be messy. For the last decade or so, I'm usually playing games from previous years. Take 2020 for example. I have played 23 different games, and not one of them is from this year, ranging from 1982 to 2018. Anyways, glad I could clutter up the thread for nothing.
Doing the greatest games event actually makes this a lot easier though.
I've got my 50 greatest games in a spreadsheet so just had to sort by year and then ranking to find my best game from each year.
