Top 10 Games Played in 2019 (5-1)

Whew! After telling you the first half of my Top 10 games played in 2019, I needed a break. Being surrounded by all that awesomeness can be tiring!

Yes, I am short…why do you ask?

But now I’m back with the bottom half of the list. These are the 5 best games I played in 2019, and you know they’re going to be good because I have the best taste (seriously, you do know that, right?).

Please note that this is not the Top 10 games of 2019. I only wish I had played enough actual 2019 games to qualify to have a Top 10.

That would be a great year!!!! But my fellow cultists would be really miffed.

No, these are the Top 10 games that I played in 2019.

You can find the first half of this list here.

So let’s get this show on the road!

New to Me – July 2019

July was vacation month. I was off the entire month and was away from my normal game group for half of the month.

Thus, it’s not surprising that I only played two “new to me” games in July.

But tell that to the rabble normal people in the cult!

You’d think I had killed John Wick’s dog, the reaction was so negative.

I seriously thought I was going to lose my position.

But then I showed them this and they all calmed down.

We didn’t want to leave…

See? The Oregon Coast is calming even if you’re not actually there!

My position in the cult is safe…for now.

Even with only two new games played, one of them was so good that it really counts as two or three games just by itself, so I’m definitely coming out ahead.

So, without further adieu (all of my adieu was spent to get a gorgeous jewel for an Afghan warlord anyway), let’s get this thing on the road!

Top 25 Games Played of All Time (10-6)

We’ve now entered the Top 10 Zone (it’s nowhere near as scary as the Friend Zone)

That’s right, the Top 10 Games I’ve Played of All Time (capitalization is very important here).

These are some amazing games, and if you follow me on Twitter (and if you’re not, why aren’t you?), you’ll probably see many references to them.

Please keep in mind the usual caveat that I haven’t played every game out there (I think Tom Vasel has probably played more games in a month than I’ve ever played).

So don’t be giving me any guff that your favourite game didn’t even rate a mention. I probably haven’t played it yet (or maybe you just don’t have taste…I mean maybe we don’t have the same taste) (Editor – nice save there)

Still have a beef?

Come at me

And on that note (really, I’m not a violent person), here we go!

New to Me – September 2018

After an August that was gangbusters, September slowed down on the “New to Me” front, but I still did enough that I was able to keep my role as cult leader.

There was no attempted insurrection this month, though that could have been because I secretly switched the coffee in the lunch room to decaf.

Use of this picture does not equal endorsement, since I find all coffee to be icky anyway.

I’m evil that way, but aren’t most cult leaders?

It’s a good thing I did, too, because they could have come after me. Most of the games in this month’s list came out in 2018, except one that came out in 2017.

That’s hardly avoiding the “Cult of the New” phenomenon!

In my defense, though, I only own one of these (the 2017 game), so it’s not like I succumbed to temptation that much. (Editor: UPS driver at the door with your latest 401 Games delivery).

That’s not what it looks like…

So without further adieu (all of my adieu hopped a train and headed west anyway), let’s begin!
