Out of the games I played I feel almost exactly the same about Hellblade, Horizon, Rabbids and Metroid. I feel like I got a lot more out of Edith Finch, although the ending left me kinda cold.

I liked Metroid just fine, but I found the constant big bosses towards the end to be frustrating. The game also locks you into one area that just won't let you progress until you've beaten one of the hardest enemies in the game. I actually found the difficulty to be almost unfair in a lot of places. You take so much damage from everything in the game. The nostalgia baiting musical tracks from Super are great though.

Oh, and the circle pad for turning into a ball (and no the screen tap isn't much more helpful in some situations) is really annoying.

Firstly I just want to agree about the Rabbids soundtrack. When the DKC music pops in during that boss it brings a smile to my face every single time.

I've not gotten round to Night in the Woods yet, and Hollow Knight sounds great. (I'm waiting for the Switch version)

I guess I fall into the camp that wishes Zelda had a little more music. Every single time the jazzy Hinox music kicks in or the incredible castle music starts up I get that little burst of determination. I felt like I could stand around in the Rito village for hours just letting that calming music play... I'm undecided if day or night is better though.

I also feel like there must be something wrong with me. I've been told for years how good the Persona music is and it kinda does nothing for me at all. P5 was my first Persona and I thought it was generally OK. I never hated it, but only really paid attention to the heist music you posted, although I like the version without the vocals more. I think with how long that game is there needs to be much, much more music. I was sick of a lot of it by the end.

Nier has a lot of really good tracks. I love the music from the intro that gives off Kenji Kawai vibes, but I think my favourite track is Copied City.

I love the Lake Kingdom music in Mario, it reminds me of the music in Escaflowne (ugh anime) for some reason, but I definitely love some of the weirder electronic stuff like when New Donk is all rainy and Bayonetta-y. And that finale song... just... it's something.

There's something about Wolfenstein 2's music that just doesn't have the same punch as The New Order. It never felt like it demanded my attention or punctuated the action scenes as well as the music from the first game.

Sorry, lots of words.

Things I liked a lot.

Sonic Mania, I think Studiopolis 2 is the best new music in the game and I kinda love how Press Garden 1 sounds like it's from Guardian heroes on the Saturn, Press Garden 2 sounds like it's from a Shinobi game, and the remix from Lava Reef 2 sounds like something from Astal, also on the Saturn.

There's a really beautiful atmospheric track as the end of Little Nightmares called Beneath the Waves.

I love the remade tracks for Fire Emblem. I've listened to the older versions and it's incredible how grand they made them sound. I love March to Deliverance, The Sacrifice and the Saint, and Twilight of the Gods.

The secretly great orchestral score of 2017 goes to Knack 2... really. I adore the music in that game, it gives off Jerry Goldsmith vibes in places.

And then there's possibly one of the best soundtracks ever. Oh man Xenoblade 2 has blown me away consistently. I love how effortlessly if flips back and forth between multiple genres without ever sounding disjointed. I adore Awakening, Mor Adain - Roaming the Wastes and Leftherian Archipelago. (both day and night versions) There's a high possibility that there's more that I've not heard because I think I'm only about half way through the game.

Again. Sorry for all the words.

That sucks. I wish they'd have focused all of their DLC on story stuff. I really don't care for the extra mode on the disc and this sounds similarly boring. I'd only really care for a Horde-like mode if it's co-op, but it will no doubt just be leaderboard based.

I feel like all of the Hyrule Warriors tracks were incredible for the first few minutes, but drove me insane over extended periods of time. Maybe it's the games way of telling you to stop playing Hyrule Warriors.

@mems1224: I was playing on the Xbox too, and there have been super nice people, some people that have taught me stuff I didn't know, but that has most definitely been the exception. The worst players also tend to be from the UK.

I've played about 15 hours of the game and have really tried to give it a chance, but you really, really need to communicate with others to have any fun, even minimal chat with strangers is better than absolutely no planning.

The downside of that is that other people playing games like this are the worst. The amount of homophobia, racism and sexism getting thrown about is absurdly high. I just can't do it anymore.

When the game is at its best it's magical. The flipside is some angry dude shouting in my ear "FUCKING MOVE YOU FUCKING TWAT!" (It turns out that moving would have gotten me killed) I know that the Tom Clancy games bring about a certain type of player, but people take it insanely seriously.

I've had incredible games, and the most intense 1V1 moments, but the bullshit is too much to deal with. You really need a couple of people to play with to get the most out of the game. It's a real shame.

Man, I imported Virtual-On Force a few years back when I was going through my "I'm gonna import weird shit from Japan" phase (It never really ended)... and of course GIANT ROBOTS. I had absolutely no idea what the hell I was doing. It's like 2 on 2, and I played a bunch online, but just got destroyed in every single match. I'm sure the Japanese players I kept getting teamed up with were not so happy about that.

I loved the look, and it has a crazy song I don't know the name of at the end of it. Part of me wishes I'd have figured out its systems more. It did get me like 800 achievement points in about 40 minutes though.

Austin! play LBX!

David Cage is making some of the best comedy games out there. That bit in Beyond where Ellen Page wanders around a room sobbing is one of the funniest parts of any game ever. I can't wait to see what David Cage is going to do with robo-ladies.

Holy shit is Dan really ruining my enjoyment of this. Do it how you want, but do this, do that, do this. Play the game how you would, but develop the weapons and use the exact tactics I used in my playthrough. Just stop it Dan.

There's been moments of this in the past games, but nothing quite as annoying as this time around... probably because it's fresh in Dan's mind.
