Some of the recent games I’ve enjoyed (or not)

  • Games: Diablo 3 by Blizzard Entertainment 3 stars. A fine entry in the hack-and-slash field, though it felt a bit repetitive by the end.
  • Games: The Last of Us by Naughty Dog 5 stars. So glad I finally got to play this game. Great story, superb action, and so well-paced.
  • Games: Horizon Zero Dawn by Guerrilla Games 5 stars. So glad I finally got around to playing this. It was worth every minute of the countless hours played.
  • Games: Super Mario Odyssey by Nintendo 5 stars. I wasn't sure what to make of it from the trailers, but this was one of my favorite 3D Mario games yet.
  • Games: Golf Story by Sidebar Games 3 stars. This funny, irreverent RPG-like golf game with SNES-style graphics was a lot of fun.
  • Games: Stardew Valley by Eric Barone 5 stars. I love everything about this beautifully rich, meditative game about farming and small towns.
  • Games: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild by Nintendo 5 stars. I regret that my rating system has but 5 stars to give for a game this amazing.
  • Games: Firewatch by Campo Santo 5 stars. One of the most beautifully rendered games I've played and a satisfying story to boot.
  • Games: Bastion by Supergiant Games 4 stars. A super fun indie game with a great story, amazing music, and great play style.
  • Games: Disney Infinity 3.0 (PS4) by Avalanche Software 3 stars. A ton of fun playing with my favorite characters from Disney, Star Wars, and Marvel; just a little glitchy
  • Games: Guacamelee! by Drinkbox Studios 4 stars. This beautiful Metroid-vania style sidescroller where you play a superhuman luchador was hilarious, fun, and challenging
  • Games: Minecraft by Mojang 5 stars. Every bit as fun and rich as I thought it would be.
  • Games: The LEGO Movie Videogame (Wii U) by TT Games 3 stars. Got this as a gift, but I couldn’t stop playing it myself
  • Games: Journey Collector’s Edition by thatgamecompany 5 stars. Haunting story, meditative soundtrack, beautiful art. Pretty much perfect.
