This is a very chilled out game. It’s also one that I can see myself playing through multiple times. There’s so much to unpack, and for the price it really is a no-brainer. Don’t waste your time with other survival games, Windbound is all you need for years.
Sparklite is a fantastic rogue-lite adventure title that provides a nostalgia hit for 2D Zelda fans without feeling like a bad copy. The game's rich world fuses mechanics and story without it feeling obnoxious, and the cast of characters are lovable and well-rounded, with each one standing out from the crowd. By the end, players will be begging for more, even if the final road is a little bumpy with some awkward difficulty spikes. Geodia is a world no one wants to leave by the end, but it's one that's enjoyable to return to again and again.
I had an amazing time with In Other Waters. It's a game I'd happily play over and over just for the overall combination of colors, sounds, and exploration. The story acts as a reminder of why we should treat our oceans, and each other, with more kindness. If you're even remotely interested in marine biology, you'll never put your Switch down.
Lonely Mountains: Downhill is a fantastic game. You don't need to be into bikes, mountains, or sports to enjoy it. The simplicity of riding down a mountain trail, even when you're trying to beat your personal best time, is an oddly relaxing experience that you can zone out to wherever you're playing.
For those who enjoy the intricate process of making something that they actually get to use in a world once it’s finished, this game is a dream. There’s enough here to keep you busy for dozens, if not one hundred, hours easily.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a great Star Wars game that's true to the lore of the universe. As a first step for the series into the soulslike genre it feels natural, though it also offers a more hardcore game mode for those that want a real challenge.
