List Hub

Watch some of the BEST list videos you’ve seen, see extras, and express your opinion!


SKIP TO A SECTION


Welcome to the List Hub! This is a place that expands the experience of the annual list videos released on the GamerZakh channel. Behind the scenes content, community discussions on Discord, voting (because everyone likes picking favourites), and a ton of extra games that weren’t able to be mentioned in the videos themselves. Press play on the music video and have a look through everything we have here. Enjoy!

Vote for the games you’re most excited about!

You voting on these games will help me know which games you would want better looks at! I can often get early access or do analysis on upcoming games, so which games would you prefer a better look at?


Alternative thumbnails

These are thumbnails I made that I didn’t end up using for the lists. I always make 2-5 thumbnails and the secret to choosing which one is the best is that I show Mrs GamerZakh them all and she chooses the best one. She always knows best.


Unlisted games that didn’t make the cut

When researching the list videos, I come across countless games that I have to filter through and decide which ones to include. Sometimes there is a contention of whether a game actually belongs to a certain genre. Other times, development or updates of the game aren’t up to standards and I don’t feel comfortable including it. Maybe a game was just announced or became discoverable after the lists were made, I don’t have a crystal ball, so unfortunate timing can mean deserving games aren’t included.

CITY-BUILDING

Arclands

An RPG city-builder that at the time of making the list it was only planning for a Kickstarter.

Make Your Kingdom


Looks rough but also even though it calls itself a city-builder it doesn’t seem to play like one.

MMORPGs

Pathfinder Online


Slow updates, not updating the roadmap beyond 2020.

Population Zero


No active playerbase with ironically zero players at many times.

Oath


Development stopped, probably cancelled.

Astaria

Promised an early-2020 release, FAQ in September 2020 says confident will release 1.0 before 2020 ends, no news updates for over a year on website. Website is dead as of writing this.

Life is Feudal: MMO


Weird development, pay-to-win, over-monetisation, broken promises, bad management.
