Warp Door has found and shared 768 games throughout 2016. That's a lot, and there's still plenty that we have missed and are slowly getting around to playing, in hopes of recommending them in the future.

We've been doing monthly round-ups to try to break that mass of games down further. Continuing that effort, as we're at the end of 2016, we've got our most frequent contributors to choose their favorite games that Warp Door covered over the past year.
