Sam’s Game of the Year [2017]

Our dear, bearded friend, Ari, asked us to write a bit about the great games we’ve been playing in 2017 (and a bit about the shitty ones too). I was delighted to participate. As I sat down to bang out some insightful criticism of this year’s roster, however, I ran into a complication.

I’m Just Not Good Enough for Absolver

I suppose the most direct analogue to Absolver would be the Dark Souls series.

Combo Broken

Sometimes my mind wanders and I think about what the high school version of myself would say about where my life has ended up.  If I could go back in time I’d hope the younger me would heed my warnings, pick a direction and stick with it.  Then I remember that I was a little shithead who never took anything seriously and just talk about how cool it would be if weed were legal and eat some Cheez-Its.
