This year has seen the release of a large number of fantastic games that are great in their own way. There has to be one standout title and this year is no different.
I also want to finish the year by thanking all the readers that stop me in the stores or give me that thank you email. It truly makes my day to hear people enjoying my reviews and gaming related news. I look forward to another great year in gaming and interacting with you the readers.
Please look for my final review of the year on Halo Infinite next week and see if the year long delay made the game that much better. Starting early next year we will finally get our hands on Dying Light 2 which has been on my radar for a number of years.
Forza Horizon 5

Everything from semis, trucks, cars, trail rigs and many more. Dust storms can be seen forming in the distance and players can interact with them, so of the craziest events from racing a train, a plane and more, there are new challenges daily.
