I want to clarify something upfront regarding my top 10 this year. I didn’t have the opportunity to play some big games I know are in my “wheelhouse.” There are a few games that I would have loved to play and would likely have included in my Top 10 if I could. Pokemon Sword & Shield, Jedi Fallen Order, Outer Wilds, and Death Stranding, to name a few.
Back in 2012, a fun little cooking game made its way onto Steam. To play it was hectic but rewarding. Its name, Cook, Serve, Delicious!, and it captivated my gaming heart. As crazy as this series can get during a single day in the game, it’s was such a great way for me to unwind. With 2017’s sequel making its way to the Nintendo Switch, it gives me another reason to turn the lights back on in my restaurant’s kitchen.
