2017 Community Game of the Year Awards

It’s true. 2017 was a great year for gaming. We hear this phrase a lot at this time of year, when most of the media is focused on reflecting on the games released in the past twelve months. While it’s true that we were fortunate enough to be blessed with an abundance of great games this year, I’d even go so far as to claim that 2017 was a historical year for the GWJ community game of the year.

January 8 – January 14

There are those who might look at this list and say there’s nothing to see. There are those who might look at this list and say “Call me in March when they start making games again.” There are those who are wrong about Adam Sandler movies. To them I say: Challenge accepted. I bet I can find at least five games worth telling you about.
Hello fellow Gamers with Jobs! I’ve been writing these pseudo-reviews since 2014. That’s three years of doing the same thing. I may be someone who’s eaten the same lunch every day since 2002, but even I like to shake things up sometimes. In 2018 I want to try something new. I’m still going to write about games, but instead of reviewing them, I’m going to tell you a story.

Welcome, TL;DP Fans! As longtime readers may well recall, I like to do a theme for the month of December. Usually it’s alliterative, or some kind of gregorian pun. This December will be no exception. I’ve decided to go back to gaming’s roots and play some important games that I missed when they first came out.

GWJ Conference Call Episode 585

Part Two of Our Games of The Year and More!
My goodness, is it that time of year again? Where did 2017 go? It certainly was a big year for video games. Almost everything that was popular (or “popular” at least) in 2014 got a sequel, Nintendo came out swinging to dominate a new generation of consoles, and we got to see the dawn of a whole new Moral Panic. Exciting stuff! But enough previews!
