Congratulations to SegaGamer, our nineteenth day winner.
On the twentieth and final day, the question we have for you is "What is your Game of the Year and why?"
Oh, and bonus for everyone today, each valid entry actually counts for three entries towards the grand prize. And we will be allowing responses up until the end of the 25th of December. Good luck!
God of War was great, but the annoying camera did bother me. Spider-Man was fun, but man, those side quests were not good. Red Dead Redemption 2 was amazing for open world immersion, but man, way too realistic with the travel and side quest stuff.
Why couldn't these three have a baby and produce the best?
But, for me, the one game that was the most fun and tickled my favorite elements of gaming was actually Assassin's Creed Odyssey.
I'm hearing a lot of moaning there. But, let me reassure you, this is a game that has turned into something completely made for people like me. I know it's not for everyone, but it is for me. It's an open world that focuses on exploring but not dealing with tons of time sink travelling. It's got a good amount of RPG mechanics from leveling up, unique equipment, skills, and player-focused decision making. More importantly, I enjoyed almost every single minute of the game. It was fun. I put more hours into Odyssey than I did Destiny 2 this year and I didn't think that would happen with any game, especially not a single-player one.
The game isn't the best at any one thing, but everything it put in was extremely enjoyable for me and for me, this year, that's what mattered the most. It was a hard year to find something as engrossing for me even though there were many great games.
