When it comes to sports videogames, I’ve never liked the arcade-style ones with over the top gameplay and superhuman displays of strength. At first glance, that is exactly what the Super Mega Baseball franchise delivers, but once you start playing, you’ll see that it’s actually a deep baseball simulator with smooth gameplay and a metric ton of customization options. Super Mega Baseball 3 is better than its predecessors and they were a lot of fun. Despite the silly aesthetics, Super Mega Baseball 3 is not just a good baseball game, it’s my favorite baseball series going right now.
Wasteland 3 is a deep and satisfyingly replayable CRPG that is a love letter to fans of the post-apoc games from the late eighties and the nineties. It may not be the sharpest looking game in 2020, but for me, it is a perfect marriage of old-school ideas and current-gen looks and depth that I will be playing for a looooong time.
Observer is light on action/gameplay but offers an extremely deep story with interesting cyberpunk world-building and some bizarrely creepy dream images to keep you up at night. The voice acting is shaky more often than not, but the story is worth the price of admission.
Bloody Zombies is a fun game to jump into and mess around. It also has a ton of red meat to devour if you want to really dig in and master all of the combos the game has to offer. Toss in 4 player co op and a really cool VR option and you may just have a can't miss title.
Genesis Alpha One isn’t a great FPS, and if you’re looking for Mass Effect-like space exploration, you’ll need to keep looking. But if you like deep base-building sprinkled with light alien blasting and space mining, then Genesis Alpha One delivers big time.
