Wasn't familiar with him but judging from the very heartfelt outpouring, I should look up some of his content. You don't leave that kind of mark on people's lives without being a damn decent human being.

Skill trees with meaningful choices and loot. Also, any adventure game with a narrative-first approach. I still occasionally like the odd puzzle-focused game but I'm old and cranky and I don't want to think too much.

Persona 5 is not just stylish, but fairly easy to read in terms of contrast and font sizes. Give me some old-ass fonts that took up a fourth of the screen back in the day.

I’m not really interested in Popcap styled games that lean so hard on microtransactions as PvZ 2 and Garden Warfare 2. I hope this isn’t that, but it’s EA. Of course they’re going to prop up a good game’s corpse by stuffing it full of microtransactions.

Seven Days to Die, maybe? Hm.

I've got a laundry list of games I just straight-up can't play due to tiny or poorly contrasting fonts. I'll try to focus on the games that I quit for other reasons.

...like any masochistic Souls-like, and the Souls games themselves. I've tried Demon's Souls, Dark Souls II, and Hollow Knight and had zero fun with any of them in the first few hours. Bounced hard off one of the last Tiger Woods game after being a fan of the series for a long time, but the monetization schemes and focus on realism bored the hell out of me. Guess that would be true of the last Madden game I played too. I'm also not a fan of games that feel like work thanks to purposefully bad controls, like Surgeon Simulator.

I think I played everything on there I'd like to, but that's a solid list of games. Need a new proper Might and Magic in my life sometime too.

Mafia 3 does some great things with this.
