It's time once again to look back on another great year for games and pick our favorites, and this year we're breaking from tradition: Instead of one gargantuan show to mark the end of the year, we're splitting our top 10 across a more digestible two episodes, with this week's show covering entries 10 through 6. But don't fret - we're still going big on these, with a rotating lineup of guest hosts including Brendan Hesse, Steve Guntli, Woody Ciskowski, John Brandon, Anthony Abatte, Jorge Albor, and Tony Wilson. And come back next week, when we'll tear through 5 through 1!

2021 is drawing to a close(!), and all things considered it's been a pretty great year for videogames. Before we begin our annual GOTY countdown next week, let's invite Tony Wilson of Framework for a look at five of our favorite downloadable expansions this year, after which we'll dig into the Game Awards, some big Assassin's Creed news, and the most expensive gaming accessories you've ever bought.

December is here and the snow is upon (some of) us, so this week, we're taking a look at games that let us step back from the action, take a deep breath, and nail someone real good with a snowball. Then we'll get into early impressions of Halo Infinite, jump belatedly into Solar Ash, get excited for Dr. Dre in GTA Online, and hear your thoughts on whether PlayStation Plus and Games with Gold should stick around.

When is the end not the end? When a hinky-looking credits sequence is interrupted to let you know the game's not over yet. This week, PNB's TL Foster rejoins us to talk about five times games faked us out with false endings, after which we'll (finally!) talk about Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, get excited for an anti-scalper-bot bill, and hear who you'd want to purchase Sega (were it ever for sale).
