Red Dead Redemption 2 is not just the best sandbox game there is. It's not just one of the best 3rd-person shooters ever. It's not just a great action title, a great cowboy or horse riding game. It's not just one of the biggest entertainment experience. Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the best titles in a generation.
While some might not like the grounded take, long-term fans should be engrossed in the changes and outstanding story elements! The god of war has returned and brings with him the best video game experience in the last decade, without question a masterclass in the PS4 echo system
Capcom blew us away 20-years-ago with Resident Evil 2, single-handedly redefining what the term “survival horror” in many ways from gameplay mechanics and fleshing out Shinji Mikami's (Resident Evil 4) ideas in of the best sequels in video games — expanding upon ideas which came before. And the reimagined version celebrates that rich history while bringing new ideas to the table. Creating in my opinion, one of the best gaming experiences in a decade. The return to strong item management, survival and tense gameplay still works wonders. Level design alone is beautiful. Making for a fun experience for even long term “Resident Evil” fans.
South Park: Fractured but Whole is an excellent addition to the franchise, while it doesn't share the silly glee from the original. Overall content quality and improved gameplay make up for the less funny story elements. It does new things with the excellent battle engine, character attributes and fart magic push it into new territory. The Fractured but Whole is another superb sequel!
Middle-earth: Shadow of War (2017) is a fantastic sequel aside from the controversial transactions and quite terrible marketing campaign. It follows up Mordor effortlessly with the expanded nemesis system, being the best mechanics in current generation video games. It can sometimes get bogged down with confusing mission placement and skill requirements for story progression. Tolkien fans will be happy as the lore is expanded upon and newcomers are set to enjoy an insight into the famous world
Ubisoft takes a few pointers from the open-world brothers with clear inspiration taking from The Witcher 3, Destiny and Far Cry. Robbing ideas which limit Bayek from having a signature experience, but in today's climate, I can take that because the 30+ adventure was a great one!
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 while doesn't deviate from the successful LEGO formula but adds enough new content and fun for multiple ages. Boss fights and the complex game design might not set the world on fire, but the diverse characters make it worth the admission price. Hopefully, we get more wholesome game like these from the geniuses at TT Games
Monster Hunter World is the best game in a long-running franchise and should be recommended for newcomers to jump into a grandiose world. The stunning visuals and monsters to slay, push into new territory with next-gen consoles, as everything just feels more alive.
