RTG | Best Games of the Decade

Editorials

The decade of 2010-2019 is finally over, and we head into the ‘20s with some of the defining years of modern gaming behind us. Some of the games that have blessed (or cursed) us in the last ten years will likely be remembered as some of the best games of all time, with many of the games released in earlier years seeing various fantastic sequels in the decade too.

But, which are the best? I’ve argued with myself a lot over the most appropriate way of doing this list and I eventually landed on this, my year-by-year best game from 2010 all the way up to 2019.

E3 2018 has had the full monty; from the awful jokes of the Bethesda conference, to people crying over a kiss in the trailer for The Last Of Us – Part II. I watched, for better or worse, the whole thing and thought I’d compile my Top 5 things from the whole set of conferences (even though mine are all games).

Review | Fire Emblem Warriors

Reviews

This review was originally posted on Nintendo Scene on 18th October 2017.

I was a huge fan of Hyrule Warriors; the unusual match-up of the Warriors formula with the Zelda aesthetic and characters worked tremendously well, especially in terms of the sheer amount of content the game provided and how the Zelda mechanics altered the tried and tested Warriors franchise in interesting ways. When Nintendo announced yet another Warriors crossover, but this time with Fire Emblem, a franchise that I personally prefer over the Zelda franchise. The more information that came out about Fire Emblem Warriors, the better it looked, and the hype levels were very high. So, now that I have had a substantial amount of time with it, how is the game?
