Variant: GeekInsight’s Game of the Year


Wow, another year has passed and it’s time to start looking at the GeekInsight Game of the Year. Eligible games are those first played between November 1, 2015 and October 31, 2016. I know it’s a bit of an odd time frame, but that ensures we can talk about the best of the best prior to the holidays. The idea is to give you a few things to add to your list for Santa.

Of course, I can’t play every game that comes out in a given year. So I have to choose from among those games I played for the first time that year. And this means a game might actually have come out a little before the start of the year. If I didn’t play it for the first time until November 2015, then it’s eligible. Here is the list of candidates.
