Although ‘most satisfying gameplay’ may seem hard to quantify, anyone who has played one of our shortlisted games knows exactly what we mean. It’s all about the tactile experience of gaming, the bosses that seem impossible right up to that last crucial swing of the blade – the mouthfeel of gaming, if you will. Sometimes a game just strikes the right chord and gives you a proper feeling of accomplishment, and that’s what this award looks to celebrate.
We’ve partnered with Fanatical for our users’ choice awards this year, which not only means you can nab some of the games on this list for a reduced price in their Winter Sale, but also that once you’ve voted and given your email address, you’ll get a free gift. This can be anything from a discount in their store to an entire game, so get voting!
Fanatical also provides an invaluable discount-hunting service with their Fanatical Assistant, a Chrome extension that takes all the work out of checking for a deal on your favourite game.
