      I'm good with this list. I think it's fair and balanced even though I thought PUBG was #1.

      BOTW and SMO are so good as well that it's super hard to pick.

      I'll pick up Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice when I finish more of my backlog..

      Not bad!

      Son of a bitch, I only played 1 of those, and I really don't think it deserves to be in the top 10. :( (PUBG)
