What is your Game of The Year?

Since the year is coming to a close I’d like to see what everyone’s game of the year was for 2019. This would be great to help people find a new game or just open up some good conversation on games for 2019. Please list the game title and the type of game for an example a FPS, RPG, etc. If you would like also list a game you are looking foward to in 2020.

My personal game of the year was DUSK which is an FPS. If you love retro games like Doom and Quake I strongly recommend it. The game I am looking forward to in 2020 is Cyberpunk 2077.

For me it’s Rust (PVP Survival). It’s been out since 2013, but it’s the game I played the most in 2019. It is also the most cancerous game known to exist. You’ll never find a worse bunch of mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging smooth brains in any other game. There is a sub game at play here, the ‘real’ game, and once you figure it out, you might truly enjoy this POS for what it is. My rust group and I have had quite the time breaking the norms and attracting crowds in unorthodox ways.

Our shenanigans include, but are not limited to:

Starting a religion (horse deity)

Building a bridge base between islands, open to all and complete with a community pool + hot tub, Hotel (hourly rates), Trader Joe’s, and a Chili’s (not pictured, RIP).

Opening and operating a dispensary

Building a stage for Piano shows, complete with live performances

And many more adventures we didn’t document!

The greatest parts of the original bridge base were that it lasted through to the end of the wipe, (servers wipe on a schedule, either forced or to clear the entity limit after a while), it was generally peaceful (unheard of in Rust), and @JDM_WAAAT’s entire Rust arc happened during that cycle. This man was the autist of a generation, and in only an hour of playtime completed the game, a feat that was previously thought to be impossible.

So there you have it, my 2019 GOTY. I don’t recommend it, it’s awful.

Imagine not showing a screenshot of my work.

I have the world record for speed running rust. I’m never playing the game again, now that I’ve completed it.

I wanted to detail that but couldn’t find it anywhere! Found it @JDM_WAAAT!


I never thought this type of game would do it for me but… Monster Train. It is a deckbuilder with really good mechanics and a surprising amount of challenge through the “covenant” system which progressively increases the difficulty as you win. There are 5 different “clans” (themed decks) and you have to pick (or randomize) two for each playthrough. Each round can be finished in under 30 minutes so it is a great time filler. I picked it up a week ago and have put 60 hours into it already. The devs say they are working on the first free content update for this summer which includes ways to extend the endgame experience. I never imagined myself spending $20 on a game like this but it was well worth it imo.

Also, how did I end up necro’ing this thread? lol and sorry.


We don’t believe in “necro”. If it’s relevant, feel free to post in the thread :slight_smile:
