Gremlik Here. The Goofs at Play Legit pulled me from my cave again. This is ridiculous, they don’t need my help. See a game, and give it an award. It’s not tough! At all!
Rule uno, my favorite choices basically had to keep me awake. I’ve yet to play a game in this realm that didn’t put me in a bad mood, but at least the following provided a dash of much-needed entertainment.
I’ll keep it real. People, it was a rough holiday season. Told my “friends” I didn’t want anything, and they took me serious! Anyways, back to task. Scroll down for 2018’s games that I at least acknowledged.
(How hard would it have been to get me a bag of Terra Chips! And is Rich Homie Quan’s New Album that difficult to find? My Limewire stopped working years ago!)

Gremlik’s Game of The Year: The Quiet Man, Runner-Up Agony
Watched the 1952 Movie from which this is based to get a head start. It’s a good thing because due to scheduling conflicts, I never completed the game. While QM’s combat system felt about as comfortable as a funeral, the voice acting is rather sublime. There’s even a way to unlock John Wayne if you enter the Contra Code during three sequential cut-scenes. The Quiet Man won the coin toss this year, proving that Silence truly is golden.
Have a Decent Year, and Stop Having Fun!
