    User Rating 7

    Hades is a roguelike game, which is not my kind of game. I ended up playing it for quite a while anyway (probably 10-15 hours) because it was everyone's consensus for game of the year last year. Whil...

    Sayonara Wild Hearts

    I had no expectations coming into this game. I had vaguely heard of the game, but had never researched what it was about or how it played. Needless to say, I was very pleasantly surprised when I boote...

    Bravely Default 2

    I tried and failed to finish Bravely Default 1, and now I've tried and failed to complete Bravely Default 2. It's not that I don't like the game, there's a lot to like. The graphics and art style are...

    Nier: Automata

    This game surprised me. I'd heard about it from just about everyone who loves JRPGs. It took me forever to finally get around to it and my expectations were sky-high.The game is a weird mix of shoote...

    Ratchet and Clank

    I played the first Ratchet and Clank game on PS2 and I haven't played one since. This game renewed my love for this type of game. It's basically a third-person-shooter/action game with collectathon e...

    The Last Campfire

    This is a fun little puzzle game with a lot of heart.You play as a lost soul who goes searching for other lost souls. It appears to be set in some sort of purgatory where the people who aren't ready t...

    Kinda Bug and Kinda Snack

    As soon as I heard the catchy song with this game and saw the ridiculous-looking preview, I knew I had to try it. Luckily, they gave this game away for free on PS Plus for PS5, and I was super pumped...

    Immortals: Fenyx Rising

    Immortals: Fenyx Rising is kind of like a wannabe Breath of the Wild. It's fun for the most part, but it definitely drags and lacks the fun and experimentation of BoTW. You play as Fenyx, a mortal in...

    A Short Hike

    A Short Hike is an easy, fun little game you can play in just a couple of hours. You play as a bird who wants to hike a mountain and is having anxiety. You go out into the world to climb the mountain...

    Murder by Numbers

    My best friend played this and absolutely loved it, so I thought I would give it a try. Needless to say, I did not have as much fun with it.I want to start by saying the best part of this game is the...

    Ys VIII

    I never thought I would finish a game like Ys VIII. After playing several Tales games, Trials of Mana, and games that are "similar" to Ys, I figured I would mess around with it for a few hours and th...

    User Rating 8

    Journey is a very unique game. It only clocks in at about 2 hours, maybe less. There is absolutely no dialogue. You play with another person but you can't speak to them. But somehow it manages to tell...

    A Blast of Nostalgia

    Astro's Playroom is, by far, the best pre-packaged game ever released with a console. Not only that, it's an early contender for my GOTY this year.While this game is fairly short (maybe 4-5 hours if y...

    Life is Slow

    I really enjoy the "walking simulator" type games, so I figured this was right up my alley. While I finished the game and never felt like I wanted to quit, I was never really enjoying this game all t...

    I really wanted to like this game, but Ubisoft literally made it impossible. This is a lesson in not releasing your games before they are done. I'm sure in a year this game will be a lot of fun, but t...

    Tetris Effect

    This game is an absolute blast. Yes, I know that it's still tetris, but this game takes tetris and ramps it up to an 11. The real reason to play this game is the Journey mode, where you are trying to...
