The Apollo Justice Ace Attorney Trilogy is a welcome remastering of classic titles. The graphics will make them feel more "modern," while the cases will eat up your time as you figure out the truth. Not everything is as refined as it should be, but this is something you won't want to miss out if you're an Ace Attorney fan!

Persona 3 Reload is everything that fans of the franchise wanted from a remake and more. It doesn't change the story but builds upon the various gameplay elements that have become staples in the games that came after. Plus, the story and characters are incredible, and you'll love getting to know them more.

The Super Mario RPG Remake is a good example of upgrading things while not going overboard with said upgrades. To that end, if you loved the original, you'll love the remake. But if you've learned to want "more from your RPGs," you might feel this one is lacking in certain areas.

Ghost Trick Phantom Detective is a worthy remaster of a DS game you might not have tried before. It won't be for everyone, but if you like a challenge, you might want to give this title a shot, especially if you enjoy a good mystery.

The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom is a near-perfect title with everything feeling fresh, fun, and new. Even the places you've been too before have been reborn in some ways. You'll spend dozens of hours in the game without breaking a sweat and love pretty much all of it.

The Last Of Us Part 1 on PC is easily one of the best versions of the beloved title. While not everything hits as it should, so long as you have a good PC to play it on, you'll enjoy the experience.

While it does have flaws, and totally looks/plays differently from the original trilogy, Bayonetta Origins shines as a worthy prequel to our favorite Umbra Witch. You'll root for Cereza throughout her journey, and be thrilled when you see her come into her own.

Octopath Traveler II doesn't reinvent the wheel to stay relevant. Instead, it dives deeper into what made the first game so much fun. It doesn't hold up quite as well as the original, but it's still an excellent JRPG to play!

Fire Emblem Engage brings a lot to the table to entertain fans of past games while also welcoming new fans. Not everything works, and some things do fall flat, but overall, it's a lot of fun.

Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a bit shorter than you'd probably like, but there is a lot of heart, personality, and style in the game that can't be ignored. Make no mistake, despite being available on the PS4 and PS5, the PC version is the definitive edition.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are hardly perfect games, far from it, in fact. But when you look past the visual setbacks and glitches, you'll find an expansive experience that begs to be explored in full. It doesn't do everything right, but it further sets up a future that fans will be excited for once they refine it more.

Bayonetta 3 is an action-packed romp filled with the insanity and sassiness you'd expect from these titles and PlatinumGames. The ending will rub many of you the wrong way, but everything up to that point is very much worth it.

Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered is a high-point of not just superhero video games, but all of gaming. The story, the mechanics, the depth of New York City, it's a beautiful thing. So if you can't play it on PS4/PS5, definitely try it on PC.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is a near masterpiece of an RPG, and arguably is one in terms of its story alone. Add that to a great gameplay loop and vibrant world to explore, and you'll see just how great this title is almost every moment you play it.
