It’s still an amazingly stubborn classic, one that manages to feel individualistic even now. It doesn’t do everything right, but the remake proves the bones of the original game are still strong and relevant today. Like all of FromSoftware’s latest games, Demon’s Souls gets under your skin with a combination of abject aggravation followed by glorious elation.
The most refined and fun Yakuza experience to date, though you may feel a bit left out if you skipped the original.
A wonderful starting point for new fans and a meaningful entry for invested fans.

XCOM 2 War of the Chosen is a spectacular experience where every victory feels earned and the threat to your soldiers feels all too real.
The Surge is a far better game than Deck13's first effort, but there's still room for improvement.

Nioh nails the combat and sense of danger, but things get repetitive fast and I'm hungry for new challenges.
Dragon Quest Builders could be the start of a hugely successful spinoff from the main franchise, but it's going to need some refinement in the future to truly shine.
One of the best RPGs in recent years nearly ruined by an awfully placed and paced epilogue.
One of the best games you can own on the Vita.
Zero Time Dilemma is the weakest entry in the series but still worth a gander to find out how it all ends/begins/continues.
Blood and Wine won't change your opinion of Wild Hunt.
The Old Hunters is the best piece of DLC From Software has ever created. It does exactly what it's supposed to do and makes a great game even better.
It's more Fallout. If you liked Fallout 3, you'll probably like this.
An easy recommendation for those looking to munch on some popcorn while you get the crap scared out of you.
The evolution of the Souls formula to the next generation, this game demands your time and attention.
A slightly below average game tarnished by bugs and glitches to the point where it simply can't be recommended.
Amazing old-school mechanics meet modern conventions.
Lucius is an awful game and one that should be avoided like the number 666.
