    Resident Evil Village is a love letter to old and new fans of the series, while including the style of puzzles of the old games with the newer action aspects of the series. Right now this is my favorite game in the series and Capcom might need to reinvent themselves in order to stay relevant even when they reach their 30th anniversary.

    Yes, yes - New Pokémon Snap is probably the best Pokémon game a fan of the franchise could play on the Nintendo Switch. But to be honest, I think that this game is better suited for all those who think that Pokémon is only a kids monster collecting and battling game. It does such a good job at making you feel how big and wonderful is the Pokémon world, and for that it deserves praise.

    Roguelikes can be divisive, I know - but that shouldn't deter you from playing what is an excellent PS5 exclusive and most definitely, it's biggest game in 2021 so far.

    The game shows great potential, but in its current state, the game feels a little half-baked. It needs more types of enemies, some better story missions and a much better net-code, in order for me to enjoy the game at its fullest.

    Piposh is undoubtedly an Israeli gaming industry icon, and this 2021 does it justice. The dialogs are hilarious, the voice acting is incredible and the story is fantastic. It could have been amazing with a little more polish, but the talent and heart were definitely there. A job well done.

    Balan Wonderworld is a very ambitious looking game, and yet it manages to accomplish very little. I was very much expecting a new IP I would enjoy and ended up sorely disappointed by it. I don’t know what Square Enix's higher ups are thinking right now, but I'm guessing that it's not “This is the next big thing".

    Not only did the Nintendo Switch finally get the Monster Hunter game it deserved - it might just got one of the best ones in the entire series. Great additions to the formula in a compact package. An outstanding work by the people at Capcom.

    Persona 5 Strikers is a great Musou game, and even though for veterans of the series it might feel intimidating but it’s worth it for the plot. The game runs so well on PC but it does beg the question: why isn't Persona 5 on PC yet? It’s time to bring it to other consoles other then the PS4 so more players will get to experience the full story.

    I know, I know - it ain't pretty, but looks aren't everything, and for what it's worth, this is an extremely solid port of an excellent game. Switch players should definitely give this one a try.

    The excessive grinding and generic story might put some people off, but if you can push past the initial bumps, you'll find a great JRPG waiting for you.

    Super Mario 3D World itself is an amazing joy ride with excellent platforming sections and amazing gameplay, but adding Bowser's Fury and it's incredible new and innovative concept of an open world Mario game, and you get a game that is bigger then the sum of its parts.

    The Medium is an ambitious game, for a studio like Bloober Team, this would probably have been too big of a challenge to take on a few years ago. The studio took a different approach to their horror games and focused on the narrative and interesting mechanics to make for an amazing game.

    This is one of the best games in the Hitman franchise and definitely the best game in the "World of Assassination" Trilogy by IO Interactive. This is a must play for anyone into Hitman and a great ending to Agent 47's story.

    It's great to see Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game back in action on our consoles, and the game has aged great. It's still one of the best beat-em-up games you can find on consoles today.

    Panic Button did the impossible once more, with an amazing conversion of a great game for the Nintendo Switch. Sure, the cut backs are visible, but the end product is very good, and it's a great port.

    Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is a fun puzzling game if you like both Puyo Puyo and Tetris and you get something more. Unfortunately it is not a very impressive game and feels cheap at times, the biggest problem is the lack of cross play on top of a small community.

    Cyberpunk 2077 didn't meet my expectations, but also didn't disappoint me. It delivered an RPG experience like no other, delving deep into themes like control, awareness and addiction. The combat is great and the graphics are amazing, but the bugs and some under-cooked systems make it seem like the devs got lazy, and that's always a bad sign. (Played on Xbox Series X)

    Hivebusters shows that even a 3-hour long experience can be a fun and fulfilling one, if done right. The Coalition just showed us that the Gears franchise is in very good hands.

    This is, by far, one of the most important games Nintendo has ever created. A game that manages to blend seamlessly between the workout and fitness world and the RPG gaming genre. It's an amazing game, and as one who finished it - it's worth every drop of sweat.

    Immortals Fenyx Rising is the baby of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Breath of the Wild, and while the latter's inspiration is quite visible here, Immortals charm, be it from its story telling or style, covers up for a lot of the comparisons, making it a unique experience.

    Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate is the best way to get into the game if you don't already own it, with amazing graphics, performance and next to no loading time. It lands all of its punches perfectly.

    Despite having high hopes for Hot Pursuit's new remastered version, I found it to be just another mediocre Need for Speed game, using the name of the veteran series, without actually living up to it.

    Just like a next gen release title, Yakuza: Like a Dragon is the next gen for an aging game series, and I don’t mean it in a bad way, but that is a welcomed change. I will miss Kiryu as a protagonist, but Ichiban Kasuga is wonderful as well, he is relatable and isn’t afraid to say what he feels, and so will I: this game is amazing and I hope you’d like it too.

    It's one of the best games of 2020, on a console that let's me play it everywhere. Sure, it doesn't look as pretty but it does look pretty and plays in silky smooth 60 FPS. It's an amazing port and Switch owners should really buy it.

    This is hands down, the best Musou game for the Switch, and a great action title. The music is fantastic, the action is crisp and fast paced, the theme of a great war is preserved throughout the game and the story has an interesting take on the famous war of Breath of the Wild. If it wasn't for the Switch being a weaker platform, hampering it's looks and performance, this may have been a game of the year contender.

    While not on the same level as Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Demon's Souls, this launch title is still a banger and a very good platformer, even though it has its numerous shortcomings.

    The game looks miles better than its PS4 and Xbox One counterparts, but a fresh coat of paint and better animations can't fix the biggest issue NBA 2K21 and every other 2K game in the past 4 or 5 years have: Microtransactions.

    Black Ops Cold War is a good game, no question about it, but it's also a warning shot for Activision in regards to the Call of Duty franchise. The story campaign of this game was lackluster way too often and the multiplayer aspect of the game will probably be overshadowed by the more popular Warzone. The next game in the series needs to do something drastically different.

    Dirt again presents fun rally races but at the same time fails at the same point: It's kind of the same game that came to exhaustion fast and thrown away to play a new game.

    The best thing about this wonderful remake is that it truly feels like a new "Souls" game, rather than an old one being brought back to life. The graphics are incredible, the music is wonderful and the kingdom of Boletaria was recreated beautifully by Bluepoint Games. If you managed to get a PS5, but still haven't played this game, you're wasting your time.
