For the lead up to Best Games Played this year, we’ve created a new, five-part series for the hosts to take the time to really dive deep into the games that meant the most to them this year. Welcome to: the Road to BGP!

This episode, we discuss Alex’s favorite games of the year. He guides us through a journey of meaningful experiences, a variety of rougelites, and the discovery of a new universe.

Games include A Short Hike, Risk of Rain 2, Void Bastards, Anodyne 2, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, Outer Wilds, Amid Evil, Metro Exodus, Wilmot’s Warehouse, Bleak Sword, and Tetris Effect.
