Comments

    Horror really did well in September. So many good games on this list! Never going to find the time >.

    What about Armello? WHAT ABOUT ARMELLO!?

    Can't believe how that game flew under the radar. It is bloody fantastic and addictive as well.

      Kotaku is less mainstream that you think. I'm positive that the spotlight shone on that game by Penny Arcade brought many more people to it than Kotaku could had.

    Isn't this just a list of every game from September?
