It’s E3 time again, and just like last year, it’s kind of all over the place, so I explain what E3 means to me, my memories of the event and I cover a game that I judged too early, and missed out on a experience that was more than “just another zombie game” until it came to the PC a few weeks ago.

With a little better setup than last time, and a temp mic, I was able to get some recording done to talk about my favorite games this year. With another bad year in gaming history, at least I was able to find some games that were totally worth playing and quite a few of them were rad. Here is my list of my top 10 games of the year for 2020.

As a wise wallaby once said “Moving day can be a very stressful day”. We are moving across the country, headed towards Tennessee and gaming takes a literal backseat for a bit in my life.
