It's the start of the new year so Dean and Graeme have a look back at the last decade (2010-2019). For each year we will have a look at the number of games published, how many are in the top 100/1000, the #1 game from that year, then finally our pick from the year.
So it's that time of year when we get some really big sales on everything, and with Dean and Graeme being pretty cheap we discuss games on sale. Does it mean they are bad games? We play a bad game that is cheap, does it still sting?
