Before we get to our hotly anticipated Game of the Year, here’s regular contributor ThePoison33 with his personal favourite from 2012:
After my first few hours with FTL I wasn’t sure whether I’d ever play it again. I was incredibly frustrated by having to watch my ship explode time and time again despite my best efforts and I couldn’t seem to progress. Since then I play the game whenever I have a chance to. The basic plot is the same each time you play, however the story changes each time based on the choices you make. The replay value is tremendous as you never play the same game twice and that’s where my desperation to play stems from, you pay for one game but get thousands.
