Falling back into my earlier mention of games that are fun for the sake of fun, I'll add Yoku's Island Express to this list. Granted the setting is very different than Headlander that I had discussed above, it still has a similar thought: make the audience smile.

Control a little bug, add in pinball mechanics in an exploration platformer, and make the world vibrant with writing the stuff of a decent Saturday morning cartoon (from the 80s, I guess, since cartoons air at all hours these days). It has a demo, so if you've seen footage and want to get a sense of how it plays, then have at it! It's right there for you. Go! Have fun! Feel like a kid.

Came here to mention Yoku's Island Express, but now that you have I'll shill Wandersong instead. Also designed to make you smile and cheer for the bard who wants to save the world. There's a few (very short) frustrating bits, but overall it's really fun. There's a quick look of it.

"I'm glad to be done with Destiny for now" is a sentence that should automatically disqualify it from any top 10 list.

I agree with lootboxes and rogue-everything, but also: Xbox. It's just pathetic now.

I get violently motion sick from first person, so this is a huge problem in general.

    Both are viable theories, but mine is that Hannah is Eve's deliberate "alternative personality" construct. Nobody still alive has seen both and can corroborate or deny the story. I also believe Eve killed her parents and "foster mother" (actually just the midwife) because of that.

      Stealth AND puzzles in a Shinji Mikami game? Inconceivable.

        I feel this entire season has been a mix of soap opera and shitty 2000s disaster movie. All it needs is the girl who hates her dad but has to team up with him anyway.
