Which games are we itching to boot up on our spanking new next-gen consoles? Similar to the staff voting with the Top 10 Games of the Generation, a few of us put our noggins together to construct this early list on which games we’re keeping a close eye on.

Remakes and remasters have always been fixtures of the video game landscape, going all the way back to when Nintendo and Sega were releasing versions of their 8-bit classics on their 16-bit systems. But as time has gone on, these re-releases in all their forms have gotten more and more sophisticated and impressive. While there are some every year that are still relatively straightforward ports, others represent thorough, from the ground up remakes...

Once long ago, role playing games were the purview of a small niche of a market, and were largely considered to be financially unviable. Fast forward to today, and role playing games represent the single most popular genre of games on the market, to such a ridiculous degree that elements of RPGs pervade and infect every other genre on the market – including former kings of the hill such as shooters or even fighting games.

But this list isn’t about...

While technically the game was announced quite some time ago, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 surprised many by showing up earlier this year at a Xbox showcase. We still know very little about the game, only that it will be on the Xbox Series consoles now and what it’s aiming to accomplish there, but we did get a very brief tease of what to expect in-engine.

A small teaser was released from the developer today called “Skif.” It’s less than a minute, and mostly...

Launching earlier this year, the Xbox Series X has made bold promises with its hope to “power your dreams” and become the most powerful console on the market. For the most part, its power is what puts it over the top of any previous Xbox console, and what it lacks in exclusive games it has been able to make up for with increased visual fidelity and refresh rates that push the limits of the screens many of us play on. Compounding the machine’s power...

Great music can make a game, just as bad music can break it, and this year, thankfully, we had plenty of examples of the former. From soulful soundtracks to set the mood to headbanging tunes to go along with high-octane action, there was a good variety of excellent music in games this year, and here, we’re going to recognize that, as we talk about some of the games with the best soundtracks of the year, before crowning one of them as the winner...

Best Switch Games of 2020

Since its launch, the Switch has settled into a very clear pattern- one where it alternates between having jampacked and relatively quiet years. And after a 2019 that was brimming with one excellent release after another, in 2020, Nintendo’s hybrid took a bit of a breather. But even in this relatively quiet year, the Switch still managed to deliver a number of excellent games- from long awaited sequels to indie gems, from solid remasters to ports...

Looking back on the year past and remembering all of the video games that left their mark is never easy. But this year was especially difficult when it came to the Best Action-Adventure category. The sheer range of experiences, from open worlds and platformers to hack and slash titles, was impressive. Who walks away with the top prize though? Let’s take a look at the nominees. Mild spoilers for some titles so be warned.

Video games continue to make great strides as a medium for legitimately great storytelling, with each year representing another step forward, and 2020 was no different. With an abundance of excellent stories told in games over the course of these past 12 months, narrowing that pool down to just 10 games was not an easy task, but that’s exactly what we’ve done here. Join us as we list those ten games, before crowning one of them as the best of the...

Microsoft had a lot going on this year in the console space. The Xbox Series X/S ushered in the next generation of Xbox, while the Xbox One sought to close things out with a bang, and both generations were quite successful in what they set out to do. For the old guard, there was a number of solid releases – both first and third party – to fill out the console’s library, while the next generation was ushered in with a notable lack of exclusives, but...
