I'm fairly young (22) with a dumb sense of favoritism; so my Top 5 is constantly shifting. That being said, NieR: Automata was such a treat! I'm not big on anime nor do I enjoy questing in a pseudo open-world environment, but the uplifting existentialism that lies in the story alongside the rigid combat kept me hooked for all 26 endings. So I'd probably put it in my Top 5, and push Super Mario Galaxy 2 out to number 6. Maybe I'm still in the honeymoon phase with that game, but damn I haven't felt so glued to my monitor in a while.

Some other contenders:

  • Undertale (hate the weird part of its fanbase, but love the qurkiness it brings to the saturated JRPG genre)
  • Hollow Knight (Metroidvania done so perfectly it makes me question Super Metroid's place in its throne)
  • Rayman Legends (I didn't hear a lot of press or hype behind this game, but it does exactly what Hollow Knight did for me: perfect the genre

My Top 5 as of now:

  • Persona 4 Golden
  • NieR: Automata
  • Mother 3
  • Street Fighter: 3rd Strike
  • Tetris Attack
