This is a terrible list, and it feels influenced by the members of Edge's personal friends and Twitter mutuals, and which games they were able to beat with their limited skill, rather than any measure of quality.
Edge hasn't been trustworthy since their mid-2013 bribe.
they're right about Bayo 3, at least. can't believe how badly that game got shunned by some outlets.
I take it that "Best Games of the Year" list is in no particular order, as it wouldn't make sense otherwise.
