Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

What happens when you put Spiderman's movement mechanics, Dark Souls' gameplay and Assassin's Creed's stealthiness together? And set the difficulty to expert mode? You get Sekiro.

Through trials and errors, players move through well-designed levels. I really enjoy the combat and the juiciness in this game but I think the user interaction with the menu can be improved.

This is a good game, but God of War is better. God of War allows beginners to enjoy the story while allowing hardcore gammers to focuing on the combats. This game only allows the latter.

Platform: PS4

Video Games are art. By that, I mean they are both individual artistic statements as well as a medium reliant on the use of visuals for storytelling.

Dreams

Handing game making power to the players is a cool idea. I haven't tried "dreams making", instead I "dream surf" a lot -- playing games made by others. Even though most games are of low quality, but when you have a good quantity of them, it became a kaleidoscope that showcases people's unique ideas.

I do hope they can improve their recommendation algorism.

A Plague Tale: Innocence

This game tells a tale of two orphans in the time of the Black Death. Touching, thrilling and unforgettable.

The extraordinary is in what we do,

Ring Fit Adventure

This game is probably going to stay in this section for a long time. I'm spending half an hour on this game every day. It's a great game that successfully merges exercising in the real world with gameplay in the virtual world.

Platform: Switch

Super Mario Odyssey

A simple game that is surprisingly fun to play. I played the game with friends at parties, played it single on airplanes. I never thought collecting coins can be so much fun.

Uncharted 4

The first few chapters are certainly fun to play. My heart rate will spike as I climb through the buildings. But as the game progress, the gameplay became repetitive.

Supraland

A fun and casual puzzle solving game! If you enjoyed the puzzles in Portal and the adventures in the Legend of Zelda, you should definitely try this game out!

Platform: PC

If our lives are already written, it would take a courageous man to change the script.

Ni No Kuni

I always love creative Japanese animated movies (think Hayao Miyazaki). This game successfully merges that with innovative real-time turn-based combat. It's worth trying for anyone who likes a good story.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice

The game that got everything right but gameplay. Hellblade has one of the most photorealistic graphics, immersive environment, and sound effects, plus satisfying combat.

But the puzzle-solving, which players spend half of their time doing, is boring, frustrating and luck-based. Player feedback is non-existing or confusing in this game. This game shows the importance of playtesting.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

I prefer Call of Duty/MGV style FPS game, so for me Wolfenstein II isn't realistic enough. The feedback for loss of blood is also vague and based on a numeric systems. I died multiple times becuase I thought I was in full health when in fact I'm in 50% health. Nonetheless, I can see why other players would enjoy this game.

Rainbow Six Siege

The best online tactical shooter game I have ever played. The focus on tactical defense and insertion, environmental destruction and cooperation between teammates give the player a highly immersive experience.

Platform: PC

Don’t ever stop. Always keep going, no matter what happens and is taken from you. Even when life is so unfair, don’t give up.

The Outer Worlds

This RPG game is mind-blowing! I feel truly immersive and my action actually matters in this game, especially when solving moral delimmas. I can also see immediate feedback for the choices I make. I stopped playing after leaving the first planet because I want to play it on Switch.

Tom Clancy's The Division 2

I'm using a Razer laptop with GTX1660-Ti and I'm getting constant frame drops and input lags, even after I lower the graphics setting. Users want a working product out of the box, not hours of troubleshooting.
