Rad is about what you expect from the modern rogue-like game in terms of features and structure.  If you dig the 80's aesthetic, or rogue-likes in general, there's a game that you can sink many hours into here.

Madden 20 does very little in this year's game to impress, but it doesn't do anything that truly disappoints.  What it offers is a competent and refined football experience with a stellar presentation and plenty of modes to play.

If you are, looking for a straight forward co-op shooter with plenty of customization and collectibles, you might enjoy the game with friends or random online players. Solo players should probably avoid this one though.

The thing that I kept saying to myself when playing Ultimate Alliance 3 is that if this wasn't a Marvel game with such beloved characters and familiar story lines it would be a bad game.  A great coat of paint does raise the average for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, but its roots are a rote beat 'em up that shows off all its tricks in the first couple of hours and wears out its welcome well before the credits roll.

If you like the building, crafting, and collecting aspects of something like Minecraft, but wanted a little more structure, Dragon Quest Builders 2 is an easy recommendation whether you're a Dragon Quest fan or not.

Super Mario Maker 2 offers an incredible depth of tools to create anything you can dream up from some of the most iconic Super Mario Bros. games.  Whether you're a creator or a player, a beginner or shell-jumping pro, there's something for you.

As a shooter Rage 2 is incredible.  It's everything around that core competency that brings the game down.  A lack of narrative, world building, and questionable design decisions in terms of progression leave the experience feeling flat.

Days Gone offers a dangerous and desolate world full of bad things and bad people. if you're willing to put up with some shortcomings the reward is one of the best open-world zombie apocalypse games to date.

Despite the questionable monetization, Devil May Cry V is an impressive game on the presentation front and a deep hack and slash with a ton of moves, combos, and weapons to master across three unique characters.

Anthem impresses on the presentation front and the javelin suits are a blast to play with, but a lack of diversity in the game and uninspired loot-driven progression system make it feel like Anthem could be a much better game than it currently is with a few updates.

Short and not very good, Crackdown 3 has few things to point to as reasons to exist.

Far Cry New Dawn takes players on an interesting journey to tell the story of what happened after the cliffhanger events of Far Cry 5. It mixes and matches franchise staples with new RPG mechanics and gameplay ideas to offer something familiar, but fresh.

Just Cause 4 more often than not feels like an average open world third person shooter than it does the explosion filled bonanza that it should be.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on the PlayStation 4 is a port of a bad version of a great concept.

Worth the wait, Below is a Rouge lite that doesn't hold your hand and asks you figure out the rules of this world on your own.  It makes for a fulfilling, albeit difficult journey.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is equal parts greatness and lacking.  The sheer wealth of content and great gameplay is commended but there are big holes in what could be a great game.

Darksiders 3 is a much different game than its predecessors.  The ideas here aren't bad, so much as they are poorly executed.  There's still an interesting story and great presentation to experience, but you'll likely have to overlook the technical issues even if the core gameplay suits you.

Battlefield V ultimately feels like a lateral release with little pushing the franchise forward when you judge it by what's here and not what may or may not come.
