Brainstorm

From Simon Marr on Twitter. Original question “Game mechanics you would like to see the back of or see more of in 2019”. We twisted that a little to be “What do we think was the most used mechanic in games that came out this year, and where do we think we will see innovation over the course of 2019”.
