Can you believe that we’re so close to the end of the year? Many people are busy planning for the holidays, or thinking of Christmas presents and feasts, while many gamers are thinking of finally starting to clear that backlog again. “Yes, this year I am definitely not just playing that one massive game that recently released!” And then the big game companies come and dump a couple of more games on the pile saying: “Don’t forget about these!”
