Might as well post my GOTY/GOTD lists in alphabetical order here as well

Disco Elysium, Metro Exodus, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Songbird Symphony, Resident Evil 2.

Batman: Arkham Asylum, Disco Elysium, Dishonored 2, Divinity: Original Sin 2, Dragon Age: Origins, Hellblade, Life is Strange, Mass Effect 2, The Witcher 3, The Wolf Among Us.

I know Arkham Asylum originally released in 2009 but the GOTY edition released in 2010 and is hence eligible

Anyone know the simplest way of doing a Win10 full clean install without losing any user-generated data?
I was thinking of just backing up my entire user folder to an external hard drive and then nuking my partitions while reinstalling using the media creation tool.

There is an option to keep user data when re-installing Windows 10

Yeah, I thought of doing that as well. That's when it puts your files in a windows.old folder, right?
I just want to clear any old drivers, registry, etc. and have a clean slate again.

I might be wrong but windows.old is created when you are upgrading from an older windows. Not when re-installing.
All user files will be in the user folder
Everything else will be wiped out.

If you have user files in another partition, then those will not be wiped out

Okay, that's cool. And that's when you use the media creation tool and choose to keep old files or is that the "reset my PC" method?

Media Creation Tool is used to create the installer itself on a USB drive. When you have the installer created you need to restart your computer with the USB drive plugged into your computer.
In the installer you will have options on how you want to re-install your Windows. There you can select full re-install, keep user files and such
I still haven't bought Frostpunk yet. Been waiting for it to be bundled. Now it gets a season pass. My wait will be longer now

Thanks for the refresher. It's been years since I've had to do this,

The one that I'm trying to think of was not those. It was at the PC gamer event, their game was show cased and they made sure to tell people while they were on stage that it would be coming to Steam.
Iron Harvest, I think.

Wont sony be doing their own event since they're skipping E3? What's the difference? Why does everything in videogames have to be such a big deal?

Anyone bought anything from MMOGA? gg.deals lists it as keyshop...
They're legit and have been in business forever. It was my go-to place for Microsoft Points back in the Xbox 360 days.

But I've read several times now that they might ask you to provide some sort of identification (copy/photo of your ID/passport) before giving you your code. Doesn't happen to everyone but there's a chance.

For me i'd hope i could use it as a more accessible 4 button input than a stick as i find side-buttons on mice slightly awkward to use.

Finally finished Days Gone. 7/10 from me. An enjoyable game despite it's techincal flaws, generic mission design and somewhat uninteresting story.

Way too long though.

Okay, Cooler Master is pretty damn quick with RMA. Sent my RMA request last Tuesday, got it approved on Wednesday, and I sent them my PSU on Thursday which meant that it would arrive on Friday. Today, I got a message that my replacement unit will be arriving tomorrow. I thought I'd be waiting until at least the end of this week or the start of the next. So they processed and shipped it in like two days. Very happy.

Edit: oh, right GOTY/D lists. Here's mine:
GOTY 2019:
1. Disco Elysium
2. Dicey Dungeons
3. Slay the Spire
4. Kind Words (lo fi chill beats to write to)
5. RESIDENT EVIL 2 / BIOHAZARD RE:2

GOTD:
1. Into the Breach
2. FEZ
3. The Witcher® 3: Wild Hunt
4. Fallout: New Vegas
5. Dishonored 2
6. Portal 2
7. Disco Elysium
8. HITMAN™ 2
9. Spec Ops: The Line
10. DARK SOULS™ II: Scholar of the First Sin

Best ongoing:
Destiny 2

Most disappointing:
The Outer Worlds

Lot's of 2's in mine, I just noticed. Weird! I did try to keep it at one per franchise.
I'm a little surprised The Witness didn't make it. I enjoyed that game a lot.

Finally stopped waffling and did GOTD voting.

GOTY - Ace Combat 7. Not sure I'd really call it GOTY but I haven't played much else worth voting for. Don't have Disco Elysium yet but I bet that is the real winner for me. I'll see in 2022.


GOTD. I hate ranking stuff! I'm comfortable with my top two though.
1 Hollow Knight
2 XCOM2: War of the Chosen
3 Civ5
4 Factorio
5 Guilty Gear xrd
6 Portal 2
7 Alien Isolation
8 Fez
9 Limbo (In this I'm kind of lumping Inside, Little Nightmares, Far and a bunch of other limbolikes.)
10 GTA5


Wanted to include but couldn't figure out how to make the math work in only 10 slots no matter how hard I shoved:
11 Kingdom Rush series
12 Prey
13 Mark of the Ninja
14 Cuphead
15 Creeper World 3
16 Dishonored
17 Rain World
18 Hyper Light Drifter
19 Parkitect
20 Wolfenstein? Doom? Both?


Should have included but still haven't played: (basically games that begin with D will not be played)
Divinity Original Sin 1/2
Dishonored 2
Dark Souls 3


Console:
Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Mario Kart 8
Wonderful 101


Fuck That Game Because It Cheats and Is Too Hard:
FTL

Congratulations to all the big winners.
