Off the Shelf Rankings

In 2023, I began a series called “Off the Shelf.” The idea was that I’d pull random games off the shelf, possibly games I haven’t played for a while, and take a critical look at them. I’m going to be ranking them as I go. This page is intended to be a snapshot look at where everything is ranked at this moment in time, understanding that with more posts to go in the series, things will likely not end up in their current position.

This list is current as of May 26, 2023. I’ll try to update it as often as possible.
