We all have our favourite gaming franchises that we can rely on for a great time. Heck, this year has seen some fantastic additions to long-running series like Halo, Resident Evil, Hitman and more – but there’s no greater feeling for a gamer than coming across an undiscovered gem.
And this year has certainly delivered in this regard with brilliant games in every genre coming out of nowhere to surprise us. Now, in partnership with Fanatical, we want to hear from you. Which games took you by surprise this year? Will it be a high-octane shooter or an indie puzzler?
