Kirby and the Forgotten Land is easily the best game the franchise has seen. It's an absolute delight from start to finish, filled with imaginative platforming and clever puzzles. With Forgotten Land, Nintendo has finally delivered the definitive Kirby experience.
Tunic is a beautiful game. Its gorgeous visuals, moving soundtrack, and charming environments lure you into a world of mystery and wonder. Exploring each environment is an absolute delight and the challenges that await you are ready to be overcome and defeated.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus is a legitimately good game, but it could have been so much more. The franchise has the breath of fresh air it so desperately needs, resulting in enjoyable and addictive gameplay in the wild of the Hisui region. Sadly, the game loves to also hold itself back, with a poor presentation, average visuals, and the same tried and true combat.
Unpacking may take only a handful of hours to complete, but it stays with you for far longer. A beautiful, emotional, and unforgettable story awaits beyond a simple and calming puzzle-solving experience. Simply put, this is one of the best games of 2021.
Forizon Horizon 5 is the near-perfection of the franchise. Everything from past titles has been built up to this moment. A memorable location, unforgettable set pieces, solid and addictive gameplay, a killer soundtrack, and gorgeous visuals. One of the best games of 2021.

I enjoyed mindlessly killing zombies more in the base game than I did in the arcade style DLC. I guess that's all I have to say about that.
