Monster Hunter: World is a remarkable game. It's a rich, worthwhile experience that you'll sink hundreds and hundreds of hours into thanks to incredibly fun multiplayer and engaging gameplay. The new additions and simplified mechanics couple well with the buttery smooth combat, making the game accessible and enjoyable to both new and returning players. By breaking the traditional Monster Hunter mold, World successfully thrusts the global status of the series from beyond the niche and into the mainstream.

Assassin's Creed: Origins is the best game in the series, but it's a mediocre action RPG at its core. In this sense, it both succeeds and fails at being a much-needed franchise shakeup.

Golf Story is well worth the addition to every Switch owner's library. Its zany cast, easy-to-grasp gameplay, and wonderful art design make for an incredibly rewarding experience.

Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age is a superb RPG. Regardless of how you feel about the original, the new job system and overall gameplay tweaks ensure that this remaster is a worthy addition to your catalogue.

Episode Prompto is fun to play, and it's nice to see the character fleshed out even more; however, the script is far too cheesy and suffers from such bad pacing that it's hard to recommend it to anyone but Prompto fans.

20 years later, Trio of Towns fits nicely into the mold that the series has made for itself. Failure to break out of it in the next entry, though, could be a great misstep for this farming franchise.

Final Chapter Prologue is a great game for series veterans, but it's severely lacking in content compared to previous collections.

On its own, Neverwinter is a very solid and very enjoyable MMO — with its free price point, there's no reason that you shouldn't be giving it a chance.

The Banner Saga 2 is a superb tactical RPG, standing shoulder to shoulder with the best that the genre has to offer.
