Fallout 4 DLC: Far Harbor
 – 

Brilliant DLC for a nearly briiliant game

I never understood why this diamond wasn't in the season pass of Fallout 4. Hm, probably to pump even more money into the publisher's butt!?!
Get it when it's on sale, or get it to make the Fallout experience perfect - but GET I`T! ;)

The Mahjong Huntress
 – 

Mahjongg that feels and looks like Hidden Objects

Anyone who likes hidden object games may be able to do more with this type of presentation than I can. Because the (rather insignificant) story is more annoying than it encourages you to continue playing. As expected, the mahjongg sets get trickier over time, for which there are boosters / jokers - or whatever you want to call them.
All in all, one thing: you can play, you don't have to.

Destroy All Humans!
 – 

As Futurama's Bender has already sung years ago: "I'm killing all the humans in the world"

Doesn't everyone know this feeling sometimes that all the others are just idiots who should be punished? Well, this game has answered to our prayers and makes exactly these dreams come true! So, see it from the perspective of a "little green man" and surrender to your dark side. Uahahaha!

Airport Madness 3D
 – 

Hectic simulator

After some hours of playing I'm still not sure if I won or lost to the game's objective: am I mad? Am I the right man for this job. Well, some pilots and passengers would give you a crystal clear answer. But hey, everybody is a starter at some point...

Assassin's Creed Syndicate Season Pass
 – 

Okay, not awesome

Since the main game is by far my favorite of the series, I had to get the DLC. It's okay, there are also a few criminal cases to solve, but unfortunately I didn't find the Jack the Ripper part that great.

Solarix
 – 

Meehh

A very average game. Graphics, controls, story, atmosphere ... Unfortunately, none of them can stand out. A space horror game that you can play, but not have to.

Transference
 – 

Quite playable

I have to admit that I was hoping for a little more from the game. Sometimes it goes in the bloober team direction (layers of fear etc), but never reaches their freakness level. However, the game is unique, so it is definitely a buy recommendation.

Lifeless Planet Premier Edition
 – 

Leaving footprints behind

Lost on a deserted planet - don't we all feel this way sometimes? In LifelessPlanet you can take on this role hopping and searching. The story is okay, but the game is a little monotonous. I frankly didn't finish it.

The Perils of Man
 – 

Neat adventure

Equipped with many typical adventure puzzles, this game plays with our teen protagonist. Weird characters and a decent story can be fun for a few hours. But don't have to ...

Beckett
 – 

Unique experience

Are you looking for an original and unique adventure that stands out from the crowd in terms of game- and story-wise? Then Beckett might be right for you.

Beholder
 – 

Sinister and honest

Behoder is a dark and very deep game. Between morality and selfishness, you determine the amount of espionage towards your fellow human beings.

The Rivers of Alice - Extended Version
 – 

Not for me

It didn't really get to me. Hand-drawn graphics and typical indie adventure gameplay in a surreal dream world. But I think there are better games with similar conditions.

The Cooking Game
 – 

Typical but enjoyable

If you are calm and balanced, The Cooking game is just the thing. The hustle and bustle of "real life" quickly catches up with you here. You have to serve customers, pimp your restaurant and of course always smile!

Control Ultimate Edition
 – 

Overrated

This game is often referred to as the "underrated pearl". But unfortunately it is not. A confused story, a conventional game design and very annoying battles are what this game has to offer. What's so great about it?

Call of the Sea
 – 

Nice narrative puzzle game

A nice variation from the Lovecraft universe - brighter and more beautiful than the author himself has ever dreamed. The puzzles are doable, the atmosphere and the graphics are incredibly good.
Definitive buy recommendation!

Puzzle Agent
 – 

It's okay

A very old Telltale game, without the typical engine, but in the classic point'n'click style. All in all, the game has some tough puzzles in store, but frankly I didn't really warm to the story and the characters. At some point I realized that I had never finished the game - and I wasn't particularly sorry.

A Plague Tale: Innocence
 – 

Breathtaking

To say that this game is a masterpiece is not particularly daring. The heartwarming story of the siblings on their graphically excellent journey captivates you completely. If you like dark stories, you can expect a lot here.

Memoranda
 – 

Hmmm...

To be honest, I'm a huge fan of Haruki Murakami's novels. However, while playing it never really occurred to me that he was acting as a model for "Memoranda". In addition, the story didn't really touch me. And the puzzle design wasn't my thing either.
But if you can bite your way into puzzles and like characters that are cranky but not really weird, you may be happy here.

Batman: The Enemy Within - The Telltale Series
 – 

Just play it!!!

The continuation of a great game - and Telltale's swan song. Anyone who was hooked by the first part of the series will not be disappointed in this final part. New and old characters demand everything from Batman - physically and morally. An underrated game with a high replayability, as completely different outcomes are guaranteed!

Mafia: Definitive Edition
 – 

Not as brilliant as the original game

I loved the original game back then and definitely played it through three times. Unfortunately, this remake is a product of today: polished to a high gloss and completely suitable for the mass market. This means that some of the very original original missions have degenerated into standard procedures. In addition, the experience has been shrunk from around 18 hours to just 12.
However, if you don't know the original and don't want to endure the old graphics, you should definitely enjoy the remake. "Old hands" will probably not be that enthusiastic.
