Archives: The Looking Back Series – 2001 – 2004

When LVLs. became a thing, I thought it might be interesting to go through each year of my life and do a little write up on both the events that transpired per 365.25 days, as well as reflect on games that came out that particular year to award it the “best of that year”. Considering…
