GOTY 1993-2017

Superuser on the Discord has requested I participate in this meme/chain letter. Superuser’s is here. The idea is that you pick the Game of the Year for every year you’ve been around.

Mine are as follows:

1993: Probably crying
1994: Same as last year
1995: Sand pit
1996: Drawing things
1997: Still probably drawing things
1998: Pretty sure I was building stuff using Lego
1999: Jane’s USAF (games were discovered in 1999)
2000: The Sims
2001: Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game (Dave discovers miniatures)
2002: Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
2003: Need for Speed: Underground
2004: The Sims 2
2005: Civilization IV
2006: Half Life 2: Episode One
2007: Team Fortress 2
2008: Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
2009: Assassin’s Creed II
2010: Civilization V
2011: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
2012: Warhammer 40k 6th Edition
2013: Grand Theft Auto V
2014: Mario Kart 8
2015: Rocket League
2016: Stardew Valley
2017: Warhammer 40k 8th Edition

Some obvious takes and some lukewarm takes. Enjoy.
