    Assassin’s Creed Odyssey - 9/10

    Other than the modern wold crap and one certain quest line that ties in with it, it’s a great game. Just wish they would do away with the irritating modern world parts, they aren’t needed at all. The side quests can be rather entertaining, the combat is great as ever and the Greek backdrop is amazingly beautiful.

    Pokemon Let’s Go - 8/10

    I love that it’s not just on a hand held device and can be played on the big screen now. The main cons of this game are the forced motion controls, forced use of joycons, the inability to use a pro controller and even lack of support for it and no more wild battles. That said, I didn’t mind the catching mechanism even though it used motion controls, I’d just prefer catching pokemon as it’s traditionally been done. Loved seeing pokemon on the over world and being able to choose whether or not to battle them. Overall I’d say it’s a good step towards next years installment, I hope they keep several elements.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - 9/10

    My only gripe about this is the lack of narrative in the World of Light mode. Would have been nice to include some kind of story to go with it. In my opinion there is also an overabundance of spirit fights in WoL mode which makes it quite tedious. Other than that, it’s just like all other SSB games, good fun.
    Main toon: Priest
    Alts: Rogue, Druid and Paladin plus many, many more.

    Fun combat, swinging through the city is a wet dream come true, great story even if you know the characters and what they'll eventually become.

    Total War: Warhammer 2: a 8/10 on release, 8.5/10 now with more content and update to old races, alongside a solid modding scene that makes amazing battle maps.

    Skyrim: 7.5/10 baseline, 8 with mods. Probably my favorite Bethesda game after Morrowind. If the melee combat wasn't so dull and non-Conjuration magic didn't need a bevy of mods to be actually usable I'd probably rate it higher. As it is, it's still fun to trek around Skyrim after all these years but I can't stand long gameplay sessions. Also, even with the last patch, a carefully curated mod selection and the ultimate unofficial patch, it's still buggy and crash prone. Plus other annoying stuff like those Vampire assholes spawning at the ass end of Whiterun and slaughtering several NPCs before I can even get there.

    Dragon Age: Inquisition. 8.5/10, 9/10 for the Trespasser DLC which I'm playing now and loving. What can I say, I've seen people take a dump on this game and I admit its faults in regards to fetch quest overuse, cliche main story and poor PC controls, but I still like the combat, love the crafting, like the non-fetch side-quest and world design, like sitting in judgement, like the dragon fights, and most of all love the companion selection.

    Brawlhalla. 8/10 Super fun. Reminds me of Smash Bros but even more fast paced. Tried Smash Ultimate the other day and spent the whole time thinking I'd rather be playing Brawlhalla.

    I find it far slower that previous Smash games. After playing Melee on a Gamecube for years and finally trying Ultimate it felt sluggish as fuck.

    Beautiful game.

    Lunar Eternal Blue Complete: LOONG overdue on my backlog this game was just wonderful...voice acting is dated, cutscenes were kinda sluggish for the PS1 era, the language is hilariously dated (dear god I have seen the main cast call people a retard almost as much as I head it in high school...)but..very solid RPG a a huge improvement on Silver Star Story...I would give the next game a chance but its Dragon Song...

    You're going to get that...Sakurai like's to try and find that balance between speed and accessibility...I would say he got it with Ultimate..but a lot of the hardcore melee crowd is going to stick with melee like they always had...like there are Street Fighter players who stick with Third Strike or Super 2 Turbo despite a huge scene out there for 5

    Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu 9/10
    I initially had no intention of buying it as I thought it was like other Pokemon Spinoffs (non-main games). I bought it instantly when I found out it was a re-imagining of Pokemon Yellow

    Yeah, after playing Brawlhalla a ton while waiting for Ultimate, i've basically gone straight back to Brawlhalla just for the faster pacing. That and pretty much every fucking friend I play with refuses to play with no Items on and Smash with Items is a cancerous clusterfuck.

    Detroit: Become Human 9/10

    This game is a must if you want to relax with a good story and enjoy a beautiful, detailed world. The number of choices you're presented with will make you want to replay the game to see what you may have previously missed.
    I'm always on the lookout for story heavy games to chill with. Challenging combat games are a thing of the past for me. These days, I prefer frustration-free entertainment.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 (Playstation Pro). 10/10

    I am 40% into the third chapter after 50 hours of play. I still am amazed at how they've gotten it all to fit together. I even had a massive MASSIVE shootout in Saint Denis with zero frame drops. I also found myself that white Arabian horse.

    Only downside thus far = the limited amount of stable slots. I was hoping it'd be 3 per individual stable (buying more spaces), not just 3 across them all... It'd be more immersive also if horses actually remained where you stabled them rather than just magically being transported between them all.

    Bloodborne (Game of the year edition): 10/10

    Probably the greatest game of the decade. The greatest game in the Fromsoftware lineup for sure. I've always heralded Dark Souls to be their undisputed masterpiece, but that's because I didn't own a ps4. A masterpiece is something that draws you in completely, and I can surely admit, this is a masterpiece.

    There are many adoring fans uttering the word "masterpiece" on anything they like a bit more than usual, but this game is objectively that. Now, I know objectivity is not applicable to art, but, no matter how you may experience Bloodborne, there is simply no pretending otherwise.

    The game throws you in a Victorian setting, oozing with atmosphere, and tosses in the best adaptation of Lovecraftian horror I've ever experienced in any medium other than the original Lovecraft's works. Moment after moment, the over 40 hours worth of journey you are gonna get is packed with one of richest and most fulfilling gaming experiences available. Make absolutely sure you play the DLC as well, that thing is worth every penny if you didn't get the bundle already. The whole package is on sale anyway.

    The gameplay deviates a tiny bit from the Souls formula, rewarding a more aggressive and fast paced playstyle that takes a while to getting used to, but once you learn to focus on your enemies and their tells, you are never letting it go.

    I'm not gonna go on and on about how perfect the sound engineering is or how detailed the world is painted, or how incredible the direction is, but if you wanna experience the second coming of Christ in a videogame format, no one, not even me, should spoil it for you, but merely stating to experience it should be shouted from the rooftops.

    It's that fucking good.

    Currently working my way through Fire Emblem: Three Houses. I’d give it a solid 8 out of 10. Quality Strategy RPGs along the vein of FF Tactics are always a favorite of mine, and his one scratches that itch. Though the game is very easy.

    Next up for me should be Borderlands 3. I have high hopes, Borderlands in my opinion is the best of the looter shooter RPG genre.

    Ark: Survival Evolved 10/10

    I should have bought this game much sooner. Already have 60+ hours played in less than 2 weeks. Playing single player, and experienced maybe 1% of what the game has to offer. Loving the grind, it's not boring for me in any way. I keep talking about my adventures in the game at work with colleagues, who have zero interest in gaming, but I can't just stop myself. Best game I have ever played.

    I really tried to like the Blackout club but its straight up streamerb8, unashamedly so when you look at the devs social media presence. Its like expecting left 4 dead and getting goat simulator. 3/10 would not recommend to anyone.

    Resident Evil: Revelations 8/10.

    This weekend I played through Apsulov: End of Gods (Norse Sci-fi Horror FPS) and I really enjoyed it, took about 5,5 hours and it managed to entertain me more than Layers of Fear 2.

    Would rate around 7/10 since I am really interested in Norse stuff.

    Streets of Rogue - 10/10
    Since Binding of Isaac i never had so much fun with a roguelike. It has a lot of classes and every one plays differently with its abilities and big quest. Even though i haven't beaten it yet i find the difficulty perfect, i mostly die because of a mistake and not just because i dodged a bullet wrong.

    Revisited Warframe - 4/10
    Sadly they seem to remove everything i liked about the game. It get more and more difficult and group-centric. Well, too bad, seems like i won't spend anymore money there.
