Anna De Cicco's Top 10 Games of the Year 2015

Hi, friends! Welcome to my dumb list! I tried to make it different this year and just kind doodled more instead of making a comic for each one. With some I took the time, more often I rushed them, but I hope you enjoy all the same. So COME WITH ME AND YOU’LL SEE, A WORLD FULLL OF IMAGIN-

10. Nancy Drew: Sea of Darkness

Nancy Drew: Sea of Darkness Game of the Year 2015: Anna De Cicco's Top 10 comic
Hey fishkur!

I love Nancy Drew games. LOVE them. It used to take me weeks to beat one when my neighbour and I would play. No hints, no guides. But those were better times when I wasn’t an impatient, boring grown-up. Also, there’s a dog in this game, BUT YOU CAN’T PET HIM. SO SORRY NANCY, BOTTOM OF THE LIST YOU GO. 

9. Rise of the Tomb Raider

This wasn’t supposed to happen.

I don’t know how it was able to express these complex ideas and thoughts so simply, so beautifully, but it did. We created, we destroyed. We can’t escape from the self-feeding machine.

I’ve mentioned on the podcast that I took notes while playing Her Story —  trying to solve the case like a LEGIT detective. Here are my ramblings. You can tell when I’m getting close and when I’m WAY off.

Snake. What took you so long?

Alexander pauses and talks to a fallen statue of Xerxes the Great as if it were a live person...

“Shall I pass by and leave you lying there because of the expeditions you led against Greece, or shall I set you up again because of your magnanimity and your virtues in other respects?”
