Dragon age inquisition very late to the party and thoroughly enjoyed my time with it. Sadly doubt we see a new one.

Way too many to count. I'm relatively new to gaming. I started to play "seriously" only on PS3 era, so most of my favourite games are PS3/ PS4/ 3DS games.

ARMS. A throwback to Dreamcast era fighting games with a unique and innovative hook.

@RSM-HQ: I’ve been wanting to give Owlboy a shot for a while now.

@speeny: It's a nice twist of Arcade Shooter and MetroidVania. Pretty short game and wouldn't take long to finish.

Would have liked to name games like Gravity Daze 2 and Nex Machina, but they suffer for being intentionally disorientating.

Ryse was a surprise went into with no expectation. Enjoyed my play through was a challenge and the game still looks great. It seems all the games I want to get sequels probably never will.

Original Titanfall. One of the best and most polished multiplayer game’s I’ve ever played.

Sadly, it’s sequel wasn’t as good.

Return of the Obra Dinn. This is the most satisfying game mystery I've played in a while.

Elder Scrolls Legends. A mastermind game that never received the deserved acknowledgement among card games.
Pathfinder: Kingmaker - Probably one of the best RPGs these days. (even it's a bit buggy:)) (for lonely souls) :)
Ring of Elysium - Even tho battle royale games take a lot of hate because of the obvious race every company to release their own, IMO ROE is probably the best possible out there.
If you haven't give a try to these games I do recommend them with above 60k hours of gaming, I might have more than 60k i dont even know.
