Apologies for the quote, but I want that table.

Holding off on ranking any games from 2021 for at least a year until recency bias passes.

"We'll toss the dice however they fall,
And snuggle the girls be they short or tall,
Then follow young Mat whenever he calls,
To dance with Jak o' the Shadows."

Ok, finally turning it in. I'm a bit unhappy with the list since I didn't want to include some old favorites until I replayed them for a more recent opinion, but I couldn't finish the list without them (not enough entries) and settled on including the ones where I feel my opinion will more or less be the same if I revisit them. I did exclude stuff like Banjo where I'm not extremely sure what my opinion would be nowadays. 

I did list the original release dates for the games unless I specified the remastered version or if the game technically has the same name as its original release, despite possibly playing it on a newer system/newer edition, hope that isn't too much of a bother!
