Bleeding Edge is a polished team-based brawler. Ninja Theory took on user feedback from the betas to improve gameplay and, with more content already announced, Bleeding Edge looks to have enough depth to pour countless hours into.
The Complex attempts to fuse Bandersnatch and Until Dawn and fails abysmally. Meaningless decision-making about characters that are impossible to care about makes what could have been a boring movie actively bad.
Mixing Borderlands' witty banter with Lovecraftian horror and a slight hint of seriousness makes for an interesting experiment that pays off in spades.
It's the best Animal Crossing yet, with the best visuals, unparalleled customization, wonderful villagers, and so much content that it isn't even funny. Animal Crossing: New Horizons is Nintendo at its best.
One Piece Pirate Warriors 4 adds more to the Musou formula, giving players a chance to re-experience the familiar story while adding in original content for replayability. All that adds up to a fun way to kill some time and become King of the Pirates.
Half-Life: Alyx falls short on accounts of length and issues with the platform, but manages its strengths well enough to be a game that can push the platform further and set a new standard.
While it certainly is a new game in the "Gungeon" series, Exit the Gungeon lacks the uniqueness that procedural generation can give a game. If you're a big fan of the original then chances are you'll still very much enjoy this title, with such a small and repetitive gameplay loop though others might find the game lacking.
Elder Scrolls: Call To Arms brings adaptability and fresh ideas to the wargaming genre.
One Step From Eden masterfully brings a mix of action RPG and deckbuilding that we haven't seen in a good while.
Tribes: Dawn of Humanity puts players in the drivers seat of humanity. Each player will help grow their tribes resources and allow them to evolve through the ages. This game is a good and fun choice for anyone with some free time for a board game. While there aren't any specific stand-out features it doesn't detract from the game being fun to play.
Doom Eternal is pure, unadulterated mayhem that indulges in its own brutality, creating a sinfully fun first-person shooter. The multiplayer may be nothing to write home about, but the campaign deserves your undivided attention.
City of Mist offers up mythical powers in a grounded, modern noir-setting, with a focus on collaborative storytelling over hard mechanics.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps plays it too safe, but there's fun to be had. Engaging platforming and improved combat make up for uninspired enemy design and a much too self-serious tone.

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows throws players into a world of heroes.

If you want a fighting game this is dime a dozen, though fans might get a tickle out of hurdles made to make Saitama 'balanced.'
Murder By Numbers is a fun and funny 90s romp for nonogram enthusiasts, but perhaps not the casuals.
Chronicles of Crime is an incredible experience. Each scenario is immersive and the blending of digital and physical components is done very well and feels natural throughout. The scenarios do give it a limited life-span, but the low buy-in and sheer enjoyment make it fantastic value. The options are there to add to the longevity with the expansion packs, which each add their own unique element and thematic gameplay style.
