10 / 10.0 - Hades
Oct 9, 2020

Hades is a really special title. As we play, the impression we have is that Supergiant Games studied the genre and sought to deliver the best roguelike ever made, minimizing the weaknesses of the genre while providing a unique experience. The cast of characters is charismatic; the art direction, with characteristic animations and a vibrant soundtrack, is exquisite; the casting of voice actors is impeccable... and all this is wrapped in a robust package, with a precise and fun combat system, and progression that respects and rewards the player.

10 / 10.0 - Everhood
Apr 18, 2021

Everhood is creative, precise, unique and engaging. It is refreshing to see a title experiment so much throughout its proposal and still deliver a harmonious and coherent final product. Although the soundtrack and the combat system are the highlights when analyzed individually, all the elements present here deserve praise. So, don't be fooled: here is an RPG that, although unconventional, deserves to be played by every fan of the genre, especially those who are not afraid of experiences that encourage thinking outside the box.

10 / 10.0 - God of War
Jan 21, 2022

God of War is one of the best games of all time, and one of the few that I would rate as essential for any gamer. The impeccable PC adaptation makes this the definitive version of this modern classic and the perfect appetizer for a certain Ragnarök that is approaching this year. Unmissable.

10 / 10.0 - Elden Ring
Mar 4, 2022

If I had to use one word to describe Elden Ring, it would be “spectacular”. In many ways, this is FromSoftware's magnum opus and the game the studio always seemed to want to create. The fact that even its current performance issues aren't enough to deter a genuine recommendation is a testament to the quality of one of the most influential studios of all time. Like Dark Souls before it, Elden Ring carves its name in history and should deservedly influence countless works in the years and decades to come. Who will benefit, in the end, are us, the players.

9.5 / 10.0 - Crusader Kings III
Sep 25, 2020

Crusader Kings III is one of those special games, which have the power to captivate the player's attention to the point that makes you lose track of the time. Its mix of great strategy with RPG elements makes this an unmissable title for fans of history or lovers of good plots. By highlighting interpersonal relationships as much as other subsystems, Paradox Interactive offers a range of possibilities and events as complex and varied as the human mind itself.

Nioh 2 - The Complete Edition is the definitive version of one of the best games of the generation. Complex, difficult and rewarding, here is a title that has content and the potential to entertain players for days, weeks and even months on end. The PC version is extremely welcome, as, above all, it means that more people will be able to enjoy this masterpiece. The adventure may at times become too complex, but the quality of all the elements is undeniable. It is not always that we see a franchise respect its inspirations and deliver a product that exceeds expectations. Therefore, if you are interested in the genre and are aware of the difficulty involved, it is worth venturing into this fascinating universe.

9.5 / 10.0 - Tails of Iron
Oct 13, 2021

Tails of Iron is one of the most pleasant surprises this year. Although the art direction is the first feature that catches the eye, practically every element of Odd Bug Studio's work exudes quality, resulting in an easy recommendation to those who appreciate its proposal. Defeating a legion of frogs and rebuilding a brutally destroyed kingdom may not be so easy, but it sure is a lot of fun.

9.5 / 10.0 - Monster Hunter Rise
Jan 28, 2022

Living up to its name, Monster Hunter Rise elevates the long-lived Capcom franchise to new heights. Though its fundaments didn't suffer drastic alterations when compared to previous titles in the genre, the new additions such as Wirebugs and the Palamutes make it the fastest and most enjoyable Monster Hunter so far. The adaptation to PCs only further highlights the general quality of one of the best RPGs of the last few years. A must-have.

9 / 10.0 - Rivals of Aether
Oct 12, 2020

Rivals of Aether don't hide its inspirations, but the end result is a work capable of standing on its own merits. Fun and cohesive, the title of Dan Fornace and his team has the potential to entertain both the most competitive and more casual players who are only looking for an alternative to the Super Smash Bros. rounds.

Two Point Hospital is one of those special games that have the potential to make the player lose track of the time when wrapped in their magic circle. This spiritual successor to the Theme Hospital series shows that creating and managing a hospital franchise is much more fun than a first glance might dare to realize, thanks to light themes, fun gameplay, fair challenges and an excellent soundtrack.

9 / 10.0 - Axiom Verge 2
Sep 2, 2021

Axiom Verge 2 is one of those happy cases where the wait paid off. Compared to the first game, the sequel offers a distinct experience in which the exploration and reward mechanics are capable of providing unique moments. Its combat system could have been worked better, but any mishaps in this regard are not enough to tarnish a work that should be experienced by every player who claims to be a metroidvania fan. Here's a title that masterfully mixes the classic and the modern, and its setting alone would be worth the admission ticket, recommended.

In many ways, The Caligula Effect 2 (Switch) is what you'd expect from a sequel. With a fun combat system and a captivating narrative, one can notice a clear evolution of the concepts introduced in the first game of the franchise, so that even with the eventual technical problems, fans of the series and enthusiasts of a good JRPG will feel at home. Recommended.

Gotta Protectors: Cart of Darkness is a pleasant surprise and one of the best games released for the Switch this year. Its unique combination of tower defense and frantic action is nothing short of addicting and the great amount of content here present makes it a title to play over many weeks, months and even years. Adding online multiplayer and a heftier campaign are only the cherry on top of a cake that offers the right amount of nostalgia and novelty. Recommended.

9 / 10.0 - Digimon Survive
Aug 21, 2022

Digimon Survive took me by surprise and soon became one of my favorite games this year. Its daring blend of visual novel and turn-based battle snippets may not be perfect, but it represents a thought-provoking new look at one of the most captivating franchises of the 1990s. Its charismatic cast and the constant feeling of melancholy and discomfort that hangs over this universe make this an adventure capable of keeping the player for hours in front of the console, always waiting for the next events. At its heart, it's a story about the power of friendship, as Digimon has always been. However, the mature approach makes Survive surprising and unmissable. As a result, on the anime's 25th anniversary, we're the ones who get the gift.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero is an excellent JRPG and a perfect entrypoint to Falcom's franchise, which yearly renovates its ambition to be the biggest and best story of the genre. Its release on the west, even if late, shows that some things are worth waiting; and a good adaptation to Switch makes this adventure practically perfect on Nintendo's hybrid system.
