    Street Fighter 6 is an incredible experience that any fan of fighting games will thoroughly appreciate. With 3 very different modes of play that'll appeal to basically anyone, I can easily say that this is one must-have fighter.

    Raiden III x MIKADO MANIAX is a solid iteration of a classic shoot 'em up which will always remain one of my favourites thanks to its incredible gameplay and action-packed campaign that'll keep you glued to the screen. Plus, there are oodles of extras which is great.

    Railway Empire 2 may not be a perfect fit for console play but I still loved my time with it and I definitely hope that it gets updated to help make it more accessible and streamlined. Although it can be a great deal of track-laying fun, I currently prefer the first game.

    Super Mega Baseball 4 is my favourite baseball game of all time thanks to its top-notch customizable gameplay, oodles of modes, and hilarious and welcoming atmosphere. Plus, it reminded me why I've always loved baseball games even from the good old NES days.

    Although it's a mostly entertaining old-school shmup, Arcade Archives MAZINGER Z can be quite irritating with its brutal unpredictability.

    If you own a Switch and love shoot 'em ups then I highly recommend playing Gunvein as it offers top-tier arcade-shooting entertainment.

    Cyber Citizen Shockman is certainly a relic from the past as it's undeniably dated yet at the same time, I can't stop playing it.

    Although there's a lot of humour and good times packed into Evil Wizard, its combat is quite middling and can be rather frustrating.

    Super Dungeon Maker nails what made the classic Zelda dungeons fun while letting you intuitively create and share your own; great stuff.

    Although it doesn't do anything revolutionary gameplay-wise, Planet of Lana is a lovely puzzle platformer with one gorgeous world.

    As far as retro-inspired 2D action games go, Bat Boy is certainly top-tier and it will definitely put your skills to the test.

    The delicate balance of maintaining health and on-hand energy charges throughout grueling combat situations makes CONVERGENCE: A League of Legends Story a challenging and immersive adventure that'll compel you to fully explore its imaginative world.

    Onigo Hunter is certainly one of those retro-inspired RPGs that I'll gladly go back to whenever I want a quick fix of an old-school turn-based adventure. Its sense of exploration is superb and it even makes backtracking while completing quests a treat. Huzzah!

    HUMANITY is one great puzzler that'll keep you entertained throughout its huge campaign of challenging and always-evolving scenarios.

    Although its chaotic co-op gameplay can be entertaining, Filthy Animals Heist Simulator simply doesn't reach the heights of similar titles.

    When it comes to indie game sequels, Supraland: Six Inches Under truly provides more than enough thanks to its imaginative new setting and gameplay mechanics that'll constantly keep you wondering just what the heck you'll come across next.

    Whether you play it solo or with friends, Glitch Busters: Stuck On You is a fantastic action-packed game that's sure to delight.

    As a long-time fan of all things Mega Man, I'm thoroughly impressed with what Protodroid DeLTA has to offer; I highly recommend it.

    Puzzle Bobble Everybubble! marks a great return for the iconic series. It may take a few missteps with some minor gameplay elements but what's here still provides a superb collection of bubble-bursting fun that you can easily enjoy with friends.

    It took a long time for me to appreciate what Monster Menu: The Scavenger's Cookbook has to offer and once I did, I became hooked thanks to its surprisingly deep strategic survival formula that'll have you scrambling to maintain and grow your party of chibi adventurers.

    LEGO 2K Drive is a supremely entertaining kart racer, especially for the little ones. So, if you're looking for an easy-breezy time in a delightfully silly game world then you'll thoroughly appreciate what this kart racer has in store.

    Death or Treat is a very fun 2D action roguelike with impressively immersive combat that'll have you giddily juggling Halloween monstrosities while they spew out candy as if they're piñatas and it's your birthday.

    As a retro gamer with an affinity for all things Dig Dug and Bomberman, I had a fun time with Murtop and look forward to beating my high score again and again until I can be the best bomb-pooping bunny in all the land.

    The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is an awesome and unforgettable adventure and I'm happy to say that the Zelda series is still killing it in 2023. With that being said; please, Nintendo: we really need to experience a brand new Hyrule in the next Zelda game.

    As a newcomer to the franchise, I had a wonderful time with STAR WARS Jedi: Survivor despite it not being the Soulslike that I thought it would be. However, it ticked a lot of boxes for what I love about 3D platformers which I definitely wasn't expecting; very cool.

    Marfusha is a weird game. On one hand, its gameplay is one-note and repetitive; be it intentional or not. On the other hand, it's downright hilarious with its goofy dialogue, oddball premise, and dystopian elements that actually tie into the gameplay. I recommend it.

    Ravenlok isn't a bad game but it also doesn't do anything all that well with its repetitive and undemanding gameplay and constant backtracking. If you're looking for a game to lull you to sleep, though, then it'll definitely fit the bill.

    Spooky Spirit Shooting Gallery is certainly a very fun game but that fun has a rather short lifespan so just like with an actual carnival game, you'll play it for a bit before moving on to more substantial sources of entertainment.

    I loved playing its predecessor back in the day and now that Dokapon Kingdom Connect is here, I'm thrilled that modern audiences can appreciate its wacky party RPG antics. Who knew that combining those genres could be this much fun?

    Teslagrad 2 may not be the sequel that I was hoping it would be after all these years but it's still a very good Metroidvania follow-up that'll have you giddily flinging Lumina around its hazardous environments as you amass a collection of cards and enjoyable upgrades.
