It’s certainly impossible to declare that this is a comprehensive list of the best games of “all time” because I certainly haven’t played everything. In fact, I could probably complete a list with games that I expect to make it into my top 10 that I haven’t even played yet. But for now, we’ll call this list “a collection of my favorites as of 2021”.
