Welcome to The Black List, your one stop shop for the stories published on the site this week.
SUNDAY FEATURE Hewso’s Games of the Year > The end of the year brings inevitable “best of lists” and I didn’t want to miss out on the fun. But I thought I would do something a little different from what usually appears on the site and create a video montage of my favourite games of the year. READ MORE
