2017 has been a wonderful year for games. Nearly every genre has had a wealth of fantastic games released, and most of us have felt spoiled by the unforgettable experiences given to us throughout the year.

Founder & Editor-In-Chief

I’m a happily married 24 year old dude living in western Canada. I started Obilisk by myself in 2017 — something I’m extremely proud of.


Non-gaming things that I love: philosophy, which was my university major; photography (check out my Instagram!); sports, especially soccer; and all sorts of fiction, from old-school novels like Lord of the Rings to modern-day anime like Naruto.


Also, The Witcher 3 is the greatest game ever made.
