Separating indie games into console generations is a weird concept considering how wide of a platform release they often get so I'm not sure what really counts here but the first few that jumped to mind were Celeste, CrossCode and Obra Dinn. Hades is definitely on that list if it counts, Pyre instead if it doesn't.

Expecting critics to do anything other than give 'a fair shot' about any game is weird. The more pertinent question is whether defenders of this game will be able to accept that the discourse is being fair and not sling baseless accusations of bias at anyone who has opinions they disagree with.

This thread really hammers home the role that culture has played in the response to the pandemic. It's quite fascinating to me - coming from a country that has the situation fairly under control with daily life more or less proceeding as before except with the addition of masks, social distancing and contact tracing - to see wearing masks daily described as dystopian. It's just viewed as an inconvenience that is expected to stay for the foreseeable future, even as our vaccination distribution is well underway, because it's part and parcel of how we achieve a life that hews even closer to 'normal'.

Given that most experts agree Covid is unlikely to be quickly eradicated due to its nature, I fail to see why precautions like masks after vaccination should be viewed as a wildly depressing future. But again, I accept that my view is impacted by culture and being in a country with a more cohesive response.

This isn't meant to make some holier-than-thou point; just an observation that struck me reading some of the responses here. I guess I'd like to encourage people that you absolutely can still go outside and lead a fulfilling life enjoying many activities that you did in the 'before times' while wearing a mask and being more aware of your proximity to large crowds.

Also worth noting that vaccination especially does not mean immunity with the changing state of dominance between Covid variants, against which the Pfizer vaccine has variable effectiveness going by early lab results.

10/10 for effort.

I guess as long as we have incredibly powerful Sony execs browsing here, put out Gravity Rush 1 and 2 on the PC! And uhh, make new Ape Escape and Parappa games!

My immediate reaction was Mario Odyssey sounds perfect but if you don't have a Switch I guess that isn't an option. Yooka-Laylee might be a good fit, there's dialogue but on a similar level to the Spyros IIRC.

From a different angle, it's not a platformer but Burnout Paradise fulfills all the criteria too if she's into driving.

I've played every mainline FF and Persona game and am in agreement that FF15 is a bad game but what a bizarrely hateful thread this is. As others have said, it's totally alright to think one game/franchise is better than some other without needing the other to fail.

Spend your energy on something else friend, it'll probably do you a lot of good.
