God of War

This product was recommended by Gelen Revilla from Good Noise

God of War is a third-person action-adventure video game. It features an over-the-shoulder free camera. The new God of War is absolutely stunning. This is a dark, mature action-adventure game that will last around ~20-30 hour game (with no filler content) depending on how much you explore, and the difficulty level you selected with an emphasis on quality over quantity. The game has a very nice pacing/progression system that feels very natural. The game does not handhold you, or set you to your own devices; rather gives you enough information to figure things out on your own.

Marvel’s Spider Man

This product was recommended by Brian Lee from Drill and Driver

There are lot of games that have been set in New York City but no one compares to how detailed and realistic this game is. It’s fantastically built world brings your childlike wonders of being able to see and explore the high-rise buildings of New York City. Also becoming a superhero that patrols the city by swinging through the buildings. The simple act of flipping and soaring through the city is so satisfying and addictive that you may find yourself distracted from the story. The battles are extra exciting as you can use various things from the surroundings as can also unleash sick combos against the villains.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Hearts of Stone

This product was recommended by Alina Clark from CocoDoc

This game is a lot of fun. I never really played an RPG before, but I am glad I bought this one. You can follow the compass to get to the destination, or you can go off on your own and explore and find unexpected confrontations and scenery. This is a nice diversion from my usual FPS

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

This product was recommended by Chiara Gomiero from Handy Wine Guide

If you like me are still young inside, despite your ID saying otherwise, you remember for sure Zelda. It was one of the Nintendo signature games roughly 3 decades ago. Well, the new episode has been released, and to put it simply you must have it. Why? Words fail me, it’s just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

Final Fantasy 7 Remake

This product was recommended by Chiara Gomiero from Handy Wine Guide

Ok, let’s be honest here, some of the Final Fantasy games weren’t all that great. That’s why I am quite happy there has been a significant improvement here and it will not disappoint you! What do I like the most about it? As you approach the end it goes bonkers! Pure joy!

Red Dead Redemption 2

This product was recommended by Olivia Tan from CocoFax

Red Dead Redemption 2 makes players feel homesick. Not because the turn-of-the-20th-century America that the game brought to life looked like such a pleasant place to live; far from it. More because it seemed so brimming with vitality that every session inside it was a Westworld-esque excursion. Scenic, sprawling, and overflowing with a depth of detail that only several years of big-budget development (including months of crunch) could impart, RDR2 transported players to a world that one would almost swear existed independent of the person on the other side of the screen. As the sun rose and set, NPCs went about their routines, buildings and railroad tracks proliferated, and wildlife roamed the wilderness.


This product was recommended by Steven Walker from Spylix

Bloodborne, like its Souls cousins, is unforgiving. It requires players to master movement, weapons, and, finally, its varied enemies and bosses. Micolash Bloodborne demands you fall to these enemies countless times before they succumb to your persistence. It’s the antithesis of cowards die a thousand times, heroes once. Bloodborne demands as much courage as it does perseverance and skill from its players.

Disco Elysium

This product was recommended by Steven Walker from Spylix

Unlike politics or ideology Disco Elysium is about failing upwards as an alcoholic cop. It’s an understatement to say the game lets you drill through bedrock after you’ve crashed. I spent the first day of the game running around Martinaise without shoes, only realizing it later that night.

Hitman 2

This product was recommended by Steven Walker from Spylix

Except for Absolution, each new Hitman entry was considered an improvement and the definitive Hitman experience. So calling Hitman 2 (and by extension Season 1 since it is included in 2 via DLC) the definitive Hitman experience may seem a little silly, but there is no higher mountain to climb.

Hill Climbing Racing 2

This product was recommended by Jonathan Tian from Mobitrix

Hill Climbing Race 2 is a free-to-play online multiplayer racing game with dozens of tracks, cars, and character customization features. Each passed level comes with an upgrade and unlocking of vehicles. It is a great game to challenge your friends in daily and weekly competitions. This application needs permission to access networks and foreground and background services.

Red Ball 4

This product was recommended by Jonathan Tian from Mobitrix

Roll, jump and bounce through 75 exciting levels full of adventure, tricky traps, and monsters. It works with game controllers and fire Tv voice remotes. The game features epic boss battles, cloud support, and other exciting physical elements. The application has a groovy soundtrack to ensure you have an immersive experience.

Hygge Games … I should have known that! Trivia Game Green

This product was recommended by Daniela Sawyer from FindPeopleFast

Is a boat’s starboard on the left or right side? In Japanese, how do you say Japan? Is a penguin considered a bird? What was the duration of Sleeping Beauty’s slumber? In contrast to traditional trivia formats, no points are awarded for correctly answering questions. Instead, for each incorrect answer, points are deducted! There are more than 400 questions on 110 cards about things you should know. It’ll only be a matter of time before you hear yourself say ah! in this addictively entertaining trivia game. That should have been obvious to me!

Super Mario Odyssey

This product was recommended by Anup Kayastha from Height Comparison

I just love this game. It is so intuitive to play and it’s relaxing fun. I play that game whenever I want to disconnect from other more serious games. You just have to wonder how Nintendo manages to renew the Mario series and constantly releases more interesting versions every time. A lot of secrets, plenty of collectibles, and nothing to ruin the fun. Recommended!
