With its emphasis on crafting and trading rather than action, Last Epoch puts the cart before the horse.

A novel and challenging survival game that puts you in the driver's seat of one the best cars in videogames.
A roguelike deckbuilder debut already worth of joining Slay the Spire and Monster Train at the King's table. Essential.
Combining moody and gratifying ship-on-ship combat with shallow live service trappings, Skull and Bones is great within the claustrophobic parameters of what market forces allow it to be.
Server issues aside, Helldivers 2 is a bombastic, strategically engaging and funny squad shooter.
Relink offers fluid combat against inventive bosses in gorgeous landscapes-this is an essential ARPG.
Tomb Raider Remastered is an impressive and authentic update. Too authentic in some places, though.
This ghost story is stretched a little thin, but still well worth exploring.
I'm optimistic about what Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League can become, but let down by what it is now.
The Inquisitor is a grim yet strangely gripping dark fantasy story, memorable if a little rough around the edges.
Persona 3 Reload is a highly-polished remake of the 2006 classic. A few elements don't age well.
The best Tekken game in years, let down only by its struggling netcode and aged customisation.
A short but sweet amateur detective game with a wonderful attention to detail.
Stuffed with content and pathos, Infinite Wealth delivers a near-excessive amount of urban crime-drama adventure.
Delightful deckbuilding that uses starship travel to build upon the Slay the Spire formula instead of merely imitating it. Outstanding.
Another witty Turnip Boy adventure chock-full of eccentric humour and enjoyable if not simple gameplay, I wish Snoozy Kazoo gave this root vegetable lad a little more room to commit his dastardly deeds.
With its emphasis on roleplay rather than combat and borrowings from Disco Elysium, Sovereign Syndicate feels like another step forward for the CRPG.
A palatable metroidvania with a mediocre story, my biggest frustration with The Lost Crown is how long it takes to get to the good stuff.
Against the Storm is a well-designed, charming, enthralling roguelike city builder.
Steep costs and microtransactions taint an otherwise dreamy life sim.
