Occasionally in the past, I’ve taken the last week or two of the year and featured my personal favorite screenshots that One Shots posters have submitted, but I have since grown wary of that. For starters, I pick favorites every week — so why not let everyone pick their own favorites for a change? This week’s column is all about our favorite screenshots from 2019.
We’ll start with Toy Clown, who has this wonderfully different perspective from ArcheAge: “ArcheAge Unchained brought a lot of fun things as firsts, such as helping my yata birth a baby, building a townhouse, waking up to my first ever thunderstruck tree, etc! But I just love the ocean and the depth is so pretty rowing across it.”
This next one has such a great look and texture to it that I could see it being framed and hung somewhere. This is Redbook’s Necromancer from Guild Wars 2, probably thinking about what monstrous creations she’s going to summon next. Zombie parakeet, perhaps?
It’s all about the smoldering look that Josh’s bunnygirl is giving to the camera here in Final Fantasy XIV. Got something on your nose there, dear.
But for Hikari, it was all about a nostalgia with this Guild Wars 2 rendition of the classic Guild Wars Ritualist outfit. It’s a perfect ensemble for when you want dangly things hanging all around your head.
Our final shot of the week comes from — yawn — Sleepy, who was tubing down Lord of the Rings Online’s Great River and took a picture at an opportune time of the day. You see? This is how you go into Mordor. None of that walking crap.
Enjoy your holiday week — and since practically every MMO is running some sort of winter festival, this week’s screenshot challenge is to bask in the Christmasy atmosphere of your game. Feliz navidad!
