  1. I’ve had Spirits of Xanadu downloaded for a while. The only one I’ve picked up this time is Undertale as I still want to try it.
    For my personal award, I went with Always Sometimes Monsters, calling it the Unforeseen Consequences award as I was never sure what my actions would lead to. Loved that game. 5 more minutes was Darkest Dungeon, test of time was One Finger Death Punch (can always go back to that!), game in a game was Shower With Your Dad Simulator. I nominated for the others too, really liked the idea of it!

  2. You know, even though there are some good deals/games on Steam right now, I’m skipping them all as I already have too many to play!
    Great list, though 🙂 I think it’s great for anyone feeling a bit lost as to what to buy among so many choices.
