The Best of 2018
I called 2018 "The Year of Good News". Here is a list of the games I thought were interesting or worth talking about that year.
Shamus Plays LOTRO
As someone who loves Tolkein lore and despises silly MMO quests, this game left me deeply conflicted.

The plot of this game isn't just dumb, it's actively hostile to the player. This game hates you and thinks you are stupid.
