    For what it's worth, Sekiro was my most disappointing game from last year. As someone who loves all the Dark Souls games and Bloodborne, I absolutely hated almost everything that Sekiro was doing.Basi...

    Nioh 2, sort of by default. It's a good game, but it isn't that much better than the original. However, I've found this to be a super disappointing year for the big releases.RE3 wasn't as good as RE2...

    I mean, I can think of a ton of ways that brain dance could be a cool mechanic, but maybe don't have your reveal of it be the literal tutorial for using it? It feels like it needed to be included as p...

    As much as I like Legion, a lot of his dialogue is actually reflective of a lot of the problems I have with the writing and design in this game. Like how Legion says that even when directly interfaced...
