Thanks Phil! I'll answer below:

  1. I think Sushi Roll might be the biggest surprise to me, though Just One is up there as well. I just posted my top 10 list of 2019 a few days ago--feel free to check it out here: https://youtu.be/A6XFbNBT-h8
  2. Oh yes, I want to talk about pretty much everything! :) But I've learned that it usually doesn't bode well to talk about something too soon, as a lot can change during design and development.
  3. Most of the designers I think about in these terms are fairly established, like Uwe Rosenberg, Rob Daviau, and Alexander Pfister.
  4. One key thing I've learned about myself is that sometimes I'm in the mood for constructive criticism...and sometimes I'm not. So if I'm jumping into a forum or thread about one of my games, I try to stop first and ask myself, "Am I really open to criticism right now?" If the answer is no, I come back later.
