The Suicide of Rachel Foster
 – 

Short story based game with horror elements

Short story based game with horror elements, the story is intriguing, but the thematic will divide the public opinion (see any bad review of the game).
Taking into account that the game is short, around 4 hours of gameplay, it can only be recommended for fans of story-based games.

Destroy All Humans!
 – 

Mindless fun

Mindless fun, as the name states, the objective is to destroy all humans with increasingly destructive weapons and abilities. The game has an interesting level of dark humour.

XCOM®: Chimera Squad
 – 

Recommend only for die-hard fans of XCOM

Recommend only for die-hard fans of XCOM.
It can be summarized as a spinoff game where the XCOM team is composed of alien soldiers.
There is little innovation for non-fans players.

Battle Chasers: Nightwar
 – 

A homage to classical RPG games

A homage to classical RPG games.
With beautiful hand-drawn graphics and a classical turn-based combat system, it is the game if you long for classical games.
The game provides enough innovation to feel fresh and up to date.

Freedom Fighters
 – 

A classic that deserves to be played

A classic that deserves to be played.
It is an older game, do not expect top-notch graphics and mechanics.
What this game provides are a nostalgia trip and a compelling story.

Days Gone
 – 

This game has one of the best crafter Open World experiences

This game has one of the best crafter Open World experiences.
Witcher 3 has its complex narratives and decision impacts, Assassins creed has larger open worlds with tons of activities. But none provide the interconnected storytelling from days gone. It is common for a single mission to advance two or more storylines. All that happens is connected. It creates an immersive experience where the player has the front seat.

Red Dead Redemption 2: Ultimate Edition
 – 

Storytelling as only RockStar knows how to do

Storytelling as only RockStar knows how to do.
A vast Open World with a lot of missions and activities, with a depth, that is atypical on other games.
If you wanted GTA on a horse, this is for you.

Dead Cells
 – 

Excellent roguelike

Bought the game after playing the excellent Hades.
The two games are quite similar, with only some differences (apart from the story, graphics and lore). In this game, we can use two different weapons from three classes (melee, ranged and shield) instead of one. The permanent upgrades feel a little irrelevant compared with Hades. Finally, the story is a little more convoluted, requiring that the player search and find the clues to piece what happened in the world.

Control Ultimate Edition
 – 

Innovative gameplay

From the creators of Max Payne, Alan Wake and Quantum Break, meaning that you can expect innovative gameplay and a tight storyline.
The game does not disappoint and provides a unique experience that deserves your free time.

Dead Cells: Fatal Falls
 – 

A way to support the developers and have new final levels

Do not think of this as a typical DLC. This expansion adds an alternative for routes for the final areas, with new bosses and weapons. Does not add a lot of content, but is exactly the main point here.
If you follow the developer's social media you known that the DLCs are a way to continue to fund the game. The developers have not stopped working in the game, free of charge, for three years now.

Dead Cells: The Bad Seed
 – 

A way to support the developers and have new initial levels

Do not think of this as a typical DLC. This expansion adds an alternative for routes for the initial areas, with new bosses and weapons. In all, this doesn't even add a full hour of content.
However, if you follow the developer's social media you known that the DLCs are a way to continue to fund the game. The developers have not stopped working in the game, free of charge, for three years now.

Yakuza Kiwami 2
 – 

Odd but fun game

The Yakuza games series is quite odd. The games constantly change between serious crime dama, where you play as an infamous yakuza, and bizarre side content, where you may sing at karaoke for no reason. It's an audacious move, that should not work, but not only works as it is highly enjoyable.

Darksiders Genesis
 – 

For fans of the first Darksiders

The game captures the gameplay from the first Darksiders, although the view is quite different. It also introduces the gunslinger Strife, with new gameplay mechanics and as comic relief for the seriousness associated with War.

Is short, it is a worthwhile experience for the fans of the series.

Ghostrunner
 – 

Fast-Paced FPS

Bought this game after playing Doom Eternal Ancient Gods Part 1, which means, still craving for some fast-paced game that makes you feel invincible. Luckily I found this game, and it does not disappoint.

The game is fast-paced, it is one hit one kill for all (enemies and the player) with a lot of mobility (parkour-style) in the mix. It can be overwhelming at times with all that happens, but when you can (finally) finish the level you have that rush of adrenaline.

No Man's Sky
 – 

From ugly duckling to beautiful swan

Although the game started with a rough period, it has improved a lot.
The developers added several updates (for free and not as paid DLC) that continuously fix and improve the game in every aspect.
If you like exploration and space simulator, this is the game for you.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
 – 

An interactive Action Movie

One of the best stories in a shooter, the characters have depth and the story is immersive. The game has some long cutscenes, however, they are memorable and highlight key events in each character. Without revealing anything related to the plot, the game presents the relation between 'Terror Billy' and his father.

The action is over the top, with new ways to dispatch enemies and fell that even against all odds it is possible to overcome a dreadful enemy.
The highlight is fighting nazis in the moon, where the nazis have fled afraid of 'Terror Billy'.
