I don't want to make it seem like I absolutely abhorred my time with Graveyard Keeper. However, I feel I only didn't absolutely hate it because I'm already a massive fan of the genre. I can't in good conscience recommend it to you if you're only looking for a new game.
All in all, though, The Sims 4: Seasons is worthy of your time and attention if you already have the base game. The expansion packs (with the exception of Get Together, really), all bring something new to the table that adds more life to the game.
In any case, I don't know why exactly Quantic Dream finally made a game I loved (as in, why it took them so long), but as a fan of Until Dawn and The Walking Dead, I'm glad I can actually add a third game to my favorites for this genre. Maybe it's because all of the characters are supposed to be robots so you're force-fed story and juxtaposition through analysis, making it easy from a writing perspective.
More options means more gameplay possibilities for simmers, and we all know how much we love making up stories. With The Sims 4: Cats & Dogs, the missing piece to any household that needed a pet is finally filled. And even if you don't care about that, there's enough in The Sims 4: Cats & Dogs to make this one of the best expansion packs you can get to date.
XCOM 2: War of the Chosen is definitely not for newcomers to the series. I highly advise you to start with just the base game if you're intrigued at all by XCOM or the strategy genre because this adds so much more on top of the already difficult game that it might turn you off completely.
All in all, if you’re a big fan of Cities: Skylines, this expansion is one you should at least have on your radar. It increases the difficulty, introduces some pretty long, unique scenarios, and lets you feel like a malevolent god with the ability to just drop a meteor right on the city center, if you wanted to.
Dragon Quest Builders gives players the freedom to do whatever they want, while making sure they don’t get bored of that freedom too quickly by restricting how they get materials and recipes. This smart concept, mixed with the villager management and RPG elements make this one of the freshest experiences in the series.
Is Yo-Kai Watch 2 a good game for that kid gamer in your life? Absolutely. I would have personally been crying at how creepy some of these ghostly monsters can look, but (and I hate to bring it up) if we’re going to love Pokemon in all its simplistic, weird monster ways, then there’s no reason that Yo-Kai Watch 2 can’t be considered an excellent gift for a child in your life, or maybe even you if you’re a fan of the show.
It's self-aware, it doesn't coddle you, the graphics will leave you in awe, it has a ton of action, and it's jam-packed with extra features and collectibles, to boot. If this review were just seven words long, it'd be simple to give the recommendation to anyone looking for a new game to play: Ratchet and Clank is just incredibly fun.
Whereas the core of Arslan: The Warriors of Legend is nothing new, it brings enough flair to the table so that it feels like it could be new. If any Dynasty Warriors, Samurai Warriors, or Warriors Orochi fans have been looking for another great example of the hack and slash genre, this is definitely it.
