Rocksmith may resemble Guitar Hero or Rock Band on its surface, but the title is a surprisingly thorough instructional tool that teaches you how to play a real guitar.

Arc System Works' loving tribute to one of the most popular animated shows of all time is not only an early contender for fighter of the year, but overall game of the year, too.

A retro revival given a modern coat of paint, Mutant Football League sticks to its 16-bit roots and showcases the funnier, gorier, side of American football.

Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite pits comic book characters vs. video game characters in a battle for magic space rocks. The highly satisfying action is paired with an uneventful roster and mediocre presentation, but that shouldn't stop you from exploring this fun fighting game.

Sonic Mania distills Sonic down to its basic elements, resulting in a wonderfully lean Hedgehog throwback. Unfortunately, DRM issues prevent Sonic Mania from blazing a truly excellent trail.

Featuring excellent combat and deep customization, Tekken 7 is one of the best fighting games to come along in some time.

Saber Interactive's NBA Jam-a-like delivers monster dunks and a novel leveling system that enables this high-flying sports game to leap over at least some of its flaws.

Guardians of the Galaxy is packed with Star-Lord and crew's humor and classic rock tunes, but this stiff point-and-click adventure game won't quite leave you hooked on a feeling.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 rumbles onto PC years after its original, last-generation console release. Despite irritating infinite combos and a barren online lobby, it was worth the wait, thanks to fun fighting, included console DLC, and a wallet-friendly price.

Fresh out of a fun-filled beta period, Disc Jam brings exciting disc-tossing arcade sports action to the PC. Its core game is entertaining, but it lacks the polish found in other multiplayer sports titles.

Super Bomberman isn't the prettiest game in the long-running series, but its core multiplayer mayhem is as terrific as ever. [OpenCritic note: Jeffrey Wilson separately reviewed the PC (2.5 stars) and Switch (3.5 stars) versions. Their scores have been averaged.]

Packed with tense, weapon-based action, For Honor is a fun combat title that shines in its many multiplayer modes. That said, its online requirement and loot system dim its shine a bit.

Boasting tons of fun weapons, eight unique playable characters, and a novel team-based combat option, Shock Troopers is one of the best run-and-gun shooters for the PC.

Not for the faint of heart, DoDonPachi Resurrection is a classic, tough-as-nails shoot 'em up that boasts a complex but incredibly satisfying combat system for single or two-player alien-blasting action.

One of the best fighting games ever made finally receives a Steam port. It isn't a perfect representation of the classic fighter, but the strategic, combo-friendly gameplay remains intact.

Should Telltale Games continue its strong storytelling in these upcoming episodes, the wait will be well worth it. Batman: The Telltale Series gives Bat-fans a version of the character, and of Gotham City, that haven't been previously explored in video game form. As a result, Batman: The Telltale Series feels fresh, despite cherry picking familiar elements from decades of Batman history.

The best video game version of the Caped Crusader to come along in some time, Batman: The Telltale Series delivers the action and characterizations that you'd expect from a property based on the Dark Knight Detective.
