Payday 3 does play it safe, it feels like Payday 2 with some refinements and modern elements while not greatly expanding upon the core concepts of play.

Alfred Hitchcock – Vertigo provides an exciting story that goes deep into the darkest depths of crazed obsession, but is stuck within a rough shell featuring poorly aged mechanics and presentation.
The Crew Motorfest offers a scenic easy going open world racing game that refines upon elements of The Crew 2 with a great selection of content backing it.
Starfield is the ultimate space adventure, a game I often dreamed of being possible in my youth and finally fully realized by Bethesda.
Fort Solis provides a fun mystery, a good level of suspense and some engaging characters well grounded by the great performances behind them.
Immortals of Aveum provides a surprisingly lengthy narrative; but with that a rather bloated and repetitive one with magic that while cool, is hard to see with the blurry visuals.
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre delivers on horror and exciting gameplay while also at times coming across as rather repetitive.
Atlas Fallen is ambitious being tight in scale and offering some limited scope which was refreshing for an open world game.
Crash Team Rumble is fun, with a strangely addicting gameplay loop that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Hogwarts Legacy provides a magical adventure set within a beautifully well detailed Hogwarts, it really does make the school year come alive in an exciting and interesting way.
Diablo 4 is an incredibly impressive continuation and expansion upon the core foundations of Diablo, offering an ultimately extensive and exciting experience.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is the worst game I’ve ever played, it barely functions and when it does it’s just mundanely boring.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is expansive, lengthy and filled with creative challenges for those that want to use the environment to their advantage.
Ravenlok is a charming, cute and visually impressive little adventure that welcomes all types of players.
Redfall is an empty mess, an embarrassment of the Xbox platform and a completely mundane exercise in insanity.
Dead Island 2 is a bloody good time for the most part, but lacks the sense of scale I had anticipated in a sequel despite there being such a gap in time.
Minecraft Legends offers simple, yet decently complex enough real time strategy combat where players are free to build and attack within a dynamic world.
Pocket Witch is a tad minimal in terms of length, but it does make up for that with a decent level of platforming challenge and a slightly cute vibe.
Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe is an enjoyable, easy going platformer that does bring the benefit of four player coop action.
Wanted: Dead is perhaps too ambitious, at times punching above its weight while mostly missing the mark and also being brutally difficult at times.
