    We’re trying out an idea we’ve had for quite some time now. Moving forward, all of our Game of the Month winner announcements will be accompanied by a video. Instead of awkwardly starting in October, we’ve decided to catch for the whole year. Expect one Game of the Month video every week through January until […] More

    August is a strange month for games.

    Onrush – Game of the Month

    Summertime can be a notorious dry season for gaming, and despite the wealth of quality releases we’ve had this year (with several highly anticipated titles still to come), 2018 has not escaped the drought. For one game in particular, this slower season was the perfect time to rush into the sun-bleached spotlight. Onrush is an […] More

    Detroit: Become Human – Game of the Month

    The summer months are now upon us and every gamer knows what that means: the inevitable, painstakingly slow drip of video game releases.

    God of War – Game of the Month

    April was a slow month for games. Yakuza 6 rolled through quietly without anybody noticing or caring and Nintendo’s biggest game was a DIY cardboard kit. Perhaps all for the best, because our winner this month might have otherwise massacred other worthy Game of the Year contenders as can happen sometimes in this ruthless gauntlet […] More

    A Way Out – Game of the Month

    March 2018 had its fair share of high profile releases. Whether it was Sea of Thieves’ lackluster launch or Far Cry 5’s surprisingly refreshing take on the well-worn franchise, gamers had a lot to discuss as the third month of the year drew to a close.

    Shadow of the Colossus – Game of the Month

    February 2018 featured a strange mix of video game releases. Kingdom Come: Deliverance took advantage of the slow month, allowing the game to achieve a widespread level of exposure. Metal Gear: Survive’s extra character slot controversy ensured that Konami’s first game in the series following Hideo Kojima’s departure would be remembered for all the wrong […] More

    Every so often a game comes around that surprises you. Looking at this year’s lineup, we can already anticipate greatness from the likes of God of War, Red Dead Redemption 2, and some others.

    Top Shelf Gaming’s 2017 Game of the Year revealed

    After much deliberation, TSG has elected to give our 2017 Game of the Year Award to…The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild! In truth, there wasn’t much of a concerted argument. If you’ve been following this site over the past year you’ve read, or at least seen, numerous articles about this game. But it’s […] More
