Loresworn Games of the Year: Games We Didn’t Get To in 2017 (But Wish We Had)

It’s Loresworn Games of the Year Week! Today, we run through the games you won’t see on our Games of the Year list tomorrow… but we think probably would have made it if not for the fact that we just didn’t get around to them. 2017 had so many great games that slipped by it’s almost embarrassing, so the least we can do is give them a nod here. We hope to loop back around and tackle some of these next year.

Best Games of 1998

We’re back with the eighth entry in our series on the best games of all time! Since Loresworn has only been around since 2015, but D.M. and T.J. have been having opinions about games much longer than that, we’re embarking on a journey through every year from 1980 to the present, listing our favorite games that came out each year. Every week we’ll be discussing a specific year, listing what we think are the five best games from that year. At the end of this saga, we will look over all the games from each year to create Top 25 Games of All Time lists for each of us, and a grand Top 100 Games of All Time to stand as Loresworn’s final word on the subject!

Best Games of the 1980s

Welcome to the first entry of our series on the best games of all time! Since Loresworn has only been around since 2015, but D.M. and T.J. have been having opinions about games much longer than that, we’re embarking on a journey through every year from 1980 to the present, listing our favorite games that came out each year. Since we were collectively only alive for four months of the 1980s, and the games industry wasn’t exactly what it is today, we’ve combined the decade into a single, Top 10 list for each of us. Every week from here on, we’ll be discussing a specific year from 1990 – 2014, listing what we think are the five best games from that year. At the end of this saga, we will look over all the games from each year to create Top 25 Games of All Time lists for each of us, and a grand Top 100 Games of All Time to stand as Loresworn’s final word on the subject! We look forward to having you along on this voyage through time. Without further ado, the Best Games of the 1980s!

It’s Loresworn Games of the Year Week! Today, we run through the games you won’t see on our Games of the Year list tomorrow… but we think probably would have made it if not for the fact that we just didn’t get around to them. 2016 was stuffed to the gills with awesome games, and we wouldn’t have been able to hit all the ones worth playing even if we didn’t have so many other demands on our time. We hope to loop back around and tackle some of these next year.
