Diego's recommendation of the week*: The Messenger.
Started playing with zero expectations. I had this on my wishlist but I don't remember when I put it there, so I just bought it blind during a sale and started playing. Man, what an amazing surprise I had!
What I'm about to say would be qualified as spoiler in my book but the trailer and the game description on steam seem quite proud to announce it. But I'll put a spoiler tag anyway. Maybe play the game without watching the trailer or reading the description lol that's what I did and I'm glad I did it.
As a snob and picky gamer it's nice to have more than one contender for game of the year. (Return of the Obra Dinn is still ahead)
Should we maybe make a topic just for game suggestions? I played TWO good games this year so I feel like I'm spamming now.
