Rocket League

With funky and dynamic gameplay, a variety of car accessories, and a soundtrack made in
heaven, Rocket League assures hours of fun only dampened by one of the shittiest cameras in the history of video games. Other than that, the idea of jumping and flying with a car is entertaining, and it shows just how a silly concept such as soccer with cars can be executed so cleanly that it can still be not only fun but also competitive. Here’s to you, Leloide, a stranger who demolished my team by scoring while not touching the floor in the entire match.

Godfall

Godfall presents us with Orin’s revenge path on a journey that will take us to the vast and beautiful landscapes throughout the world of Aperion while fighting our way against the army of the villainous wannabe god Macros. While it lacks in plot depth and variety between the Valorplate armor suits, Godfall compensates more than enough by bringing a perfectly balanced mix of some of the best parts of action RPGs, souls-like games, and looter games, creating an entertaining experience full of very well-polished combat mechanics and lots of customization options for our character, with room to improve even more.

Promesa

A journey through the eyes of an immigrant grandfather and the dialogue between him and his grandson, Promesa is an abstract and meaningful adventure that takes us from Italy to Argentina in a unique display of environmental storytelling that, while short and concise, it needs to be revisited several times to get the full picture. With a beautiful soundtrack full of nostalgia, an astounding work of illumination, and the realistic depiction of Argentinian architecture, this experience brings the calm of a peaceful and slow exploration through memories of love, youth, and the melancholy of a time that we didn’t live.

Final Fantasy XII

In the vast land of Ivalice, an orphan, his childhood friend, a princess, a pirate, an exile, and a fallen knight meet while they make their way into a dangerous adventure, in order to unveil the truth behind a betrayal of the past and stop a devastating war. Presenting brand new gameplay and a fresh story with compelling characters, Final Fantasy XII marked a new chapter in the beloved franchise, with drastic changes and additions to the gameplay. New combat mechanics that shined through their dynamism and a well-polished growth system makes this game an entertaining if sometimes messy experience.

Summon Night Swordcraft Story 2

Deep in the ancient ruins of Cliff Village, the violent Summon Beast Goura awakens. It is your duty as Craftknight and the last member of the Colthearts Clan, to re-seal this vile creature before it consumes everything you hold dear. With a roster of well-developed characters, four new different summon beasts to befriend and a lot of different weapons to craft the new chapter of this beautiful spinoff comes with upgrades in combat in the form of the Monoshift ability, and ditches the labyrinthic dungeon in favor of a more vast, rich and explorable world that will entertain you endlessly.

Pokemon Y

3000 years ago, a forbidden weapon was used by an emperor as revenge for the loss of a loved one, a sad victim in a never-ending war that had to be stopped. Today, a lone wanderer walks all over the Kalos region stuck in his own past, submerged in pain and penitence for the innocent lives lost. Pokemon Y is a new chapter of the saga that presents a beautiful setting and a superb OST. The 3DS game doesn’t always have the best technical performance and lacks a solid plot, but it conserves the adventurous spirit of the franchise nonetheless.

Pokemon Black and White 2

Two years after the Team Plasma attack on the Elite Four, a new Champion is crowned and two new factions clash over the Unova region, and you and your best friend end up being recruited by Professor Juniper to deal with them. An ambitious sequel of Pokemon Black and White, Black and White 2 presents a fresh take on an already known region with additions like the Medal Achievements, Pokestar Movie Studios, and the management of the Festival Plaza shopping mall. That and an even bigger Pokemon roster will entertain you for weeks in one of the best main games.

Pokemon Platinum

In the mysterious region of Sinnoh, a group known as Team Galactic attempt to harness the power of Time and Space itself, led by a madman trying to destroy the world and become a god. With the comeback of facilities like the Battle Frontier and maintaining the already existing additions introduced in Diamond/Pearl like the underground, the PokeRadar, and the Poketch, Platinum brings some improvements in performance and some changes on the quality of life that, while being innovative, don’t get to shine in a dull environment. Definitely not the worst game at all, but the blandest generation for sure.

Pokemon Emerald

A battle between the land and the sea unfolds in the distant land of Hoenn, where you just moved to! The two fanatic teams, Aqua and Magma clash, trying to summon the titans Groudon and Kyogre to fight, dooming the world under them. Introducing big changes like abilities, double battles, new varieties of berries and Hidden Machines to explore this tropical region, the new chapter is a vibrant take on the Pokemon saga. It delivers an excellent experience on both the main story and the post-game, with the Battle Frontier facility as the ultimate challenge for every player to beat.

Pokemon Crystal

In the Johto Region, three years after the events of Pokemon Red/Blue, Team Rocket reemerges, bent on reviving their organization and finding their missing leader. And you? You are the brave Pokemon trainer that will interfere with such evil schemes. With an increased roster of 100 new Pokemon and the new variety of Pokeballs to help you catch them, Crystal excels as a sequel, improving on the already well-known gameplay mechanics as well as introducing new ones such as breeding and pokebabies, night and day cycle, and the amazing Battle Tower, presenting the biggest challenge in the franchise yet.
