  1. Been playing alot of xplane 11 since triple A games are god awful and developers are starting to annoy me with microtransactions. But i am gonna try and get into more sim games and respect simulator developers instead of triple A developers.

  2. Thanks for all the hard work Hayden and Adam. Definitely ones i hadn't heard of, or not thought much about trying. Don't mind all the Negative Nancys and Debbie Downers in the comments. Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  3. may have to give some of these a whirl a game i really liked a long while ago was Fez which also had a vintage type plat-former feel with modern extras it was really cool and really long with parts that you didn't necessarily have to finish in order to beat the game a lot of that list kinda reminded me of Fez and that a game doesn't have to be AAA standard to be great.

  4. Destiny 2 is an awful game, EXP trottleing, locking already purchased content behind dlc. Micro transactions in a 60$ + game, more micro transactions and micro transactions.

  5. How many “ties for #2” do you have? Why don’t you just drop the numbering and just give one top game and then list all the other games that you liked.

    Also, you lose credibility when one guy keeps saying “I didn’t play that but I heard good things”.

  6. This list is terrible and you should all feel ashamed of yourselves. The Full Nerd is great and I love you all, but god damn guys. Get your shit together.

  7. Good job boys! Just a suggestion, it might be nice to have a third on your panel. Someone with a somewhat more mature prospective (older). Gordon comes to mind but someone that has a history of gaming…

  8. Also, if you can't be bothered not to mumble through the name of the games, maybe include a list in the video details.
    Edit I was wrong to criticize in that way, and I apologise.

  9. So I've been joking for years that since we were going through an 8-bit retro style obsession over the last 5 years or so that soon they would start releasing games with crappy, retro early 3d graphics that looked and controlled terribly. Now they have. I didn't want to be right. That looks terrible.
