This product was recommended by Alina Clark from CocoDoc

There is just something about Control that makes it challenging, thrilling, and infinitely fascinating all in the same sentence. It may be the captivating storytelling, or the way things can go from light, into dark within a short span, or the way the game is designed into twists and turns that are as shocking as they are exhilarating. I think it’s just everything because this game is everything and more. This game feels like a blend between Annihilation and a host of games in the 70s. While other games have tried and failed, to replicate what Annihilation and other games within the same box- Twin Peaks and House of Leaves come to mind, Control seems to have taken everything in stride and succeeded. Lest we get mistaken, the gameplay on Control may be a little difficult, especially since one has no control over the difficulty levels. But it still, in every sense, is one of the greatest horror games to come around.

Watch Dogs Legion

This product was recommended by Laura Jimenez from Ishine365

This game is so far the best Watch Dogs game in the entire franchise. The graphics are so cool and there are so many options in the game. Recruiting a team of players adds a lot to the game. Awesome game ever played on a console and its feature are very awesome. Moreover, the playing capabilities are too good. I kind of wonder what the developers were doing when they came up with the idea for this one. It’s fast-paced and full of action. If you upgrade your gaming device, you can also upgrade the game version. That’s a nice perk. I definitely recommend this game to everyone who ever played and liked Watch Dogs or even Watch Dogs 2!

The things used for coding art are beautiful, the world is perfectly okay, and the ambient sound of simple things, like a refrigerator running, puts you in the new world.
