Shoot yeah! DOOM is my GOTY thus far, and it will be hard to top, but look how many challengers appeared! Sun and Moon is a great game, but does very little to improve on XY. Owlboy is SNES era platformer perfection with an amazing soundtrack and some obtuse mechanics. INFRA is the most exciting boring game you will ever play (it’s about a structural analyst that becomes embroiled in a conspiracy plot). Near Death is an effective horror game with no monsters or jump scares, only the existential fear of death.

Icey and Kona look great, but are in early access, so I will evaluate those when they release complete. The rest I still need to play! Thoughts? Opinions? Animals to offer for tribute? Let me know in the comments!
