State of Decay 2 is a smart, messy idea without much of a game to go with it… again. Try it if you don't mind bugs or repetition too much.
Destiny 2: Warmind is more of the same built on a shifting foundation. Try it if you're curious about the direction the game is going.
BattleTech throws players into the deep end, but what a depth it is. Buy it if you want a turn-based tactics game that forces you to take a hit or three.
Frostpunk is a city builder focused on story and setting over creativity. Minor issues hold it back but not enough to ruin its grim vision of alternate history. Buy it.
Yakuza 6 sums up its lead character succinctly and emotionally, while shaking up enough to make the return ride feel fresh. Buy it.
Extinction is a good idea poorly executed over and over again. Skip it.
Far Cry 5 could have been the next step forward for the series after the extra time bought by Primal. Instead, it mostly feels like a step back. Skip it.
It's a great game to fill a contemplative afternoon. Buy it.
If you've already burned through your pile of Metroid-likes, Iconoclasts is solid fuel for the fire. Try it.
