Developers have taken great care to make an interesting story, but what really pulls you in is the dialogue and character interactions. They're made great through excellent writing, stellar voice-overs, and great body language. The characters on-screen may feel like real people, so it's very easy to forget you're playing a game and not watching a TV series. See More
The Witcher 3 has three completely different endings. The decisions during main quests and side-quests affect how the endings play out, adding up 36 possible outcomes. It feels refreshing to actually impact your character's fate and not just trot along a path to an inevitable conclusion. See More
If you happen to enjoy doing side quests, you might end up overleveled for the story quests, allowing you to easily power through them. This may remove the challenge and enjoyment, causing it to feel like a chore, especially because the loot also remains low-level. See More
The Witcher 3 is how an AAA title should play, sound, and feel like. Its deep combat, beautiful graphics, amazing sound, interesting quests, immersive story, and almost every other aspect of the game has a surprising amount of polish. See More
The world is intimidatingly massive but thankfully there are ways to cut down on travel time. You can ride a horse, use a boat, or just simply fast travel to explored locations. This makes the experience more accessible and enjoyable as a whole. See More
In the world of Bloodborne you're never safe. Each location is filled with fast and ruthless enemies that will constantly try to kill you. It can be infected humans, werewolves, and even demonic beasts. You'll have to constantly attack and dodge at a very fast pace, and losing focus for even a second means you'll die. It's the type of combat where you'll steadily improve with practice, making it feel rewarding when you get the hang of it. See More
You'll most likely die a lot, especially while you're still getting used to the game. It can happen on both regular enemies and bosses, with the latter being a lot more frustrating. Dying at a boss means you have to fight your way back to the boss room. If you're too agitated you might even die without reaching that boss again, which adds even more to the frustration. This pattern will repeat many times over the course of the game. See More
Bosses in most games nowadays hardly ever give the player any challenge. Bloodborne is an exception, with bosses being a test of focus and skill. You'll have to constantly move around, attack openings, read tells to dodge attacks, and choose proper positioning. Beating one of these beasts after a long and exhausting struggle is extremely satisfying. See More
The game engine often produces two unique frames followed by two duplicates instead of one after another. This makes it seem like there are frame-rate drops even though the game runs at a stable 30 fps. The gameplay doesn't feel smooth because of it, which can be quite distracting. See More
This game takes place in a Gothic, Victorian era (1800s Europe) inspired city. The buildings are dark and tall, instilling in you a sense of awe and fear. The environments are very detailed, reminding you it was a thriving city before all went wrong. All of these elements fit the Lovecraftian horror theme really well. See More
Whether you're whipping around on a dirt bike toward your next mission, or storming a fort with your team, you're constantly in motion. Even though you can slow down a bit should you choose to, the game encourages a faster-paced experience and makes it a ton of fun. See More
Ghost Recon Wildlands lets you do anything you want, any time you want. You can rush right toward the final boss if you decide to. You can complete missions by blowing people up with drones from a safe distance, or by storming the gates. Do the missions you want to, leave others to rot. Everything is up to you. The landscape is vast, and if you can see it, you can probably get to it. This allows you to experience the gorgeous environments through exploration. There are also rewards for exploring, such as new weapons or upgrades, giving you more goals to strive for. See More
Ghost Recon Wildlands is set in Bolivia, and the game makes you feel like you're really there. It's one of the most varied places on earth, and each area feels wildly different from the next. It ranges from lush, green forests, to barren deserts, to both urban and rural cities. The distinct feel, architecture, and culture of Bolivia will serve to pull you even deeper into the game.

In Ghost Recon Wildlands, the customization is not limited to just character facial features. It also has an extensive customization system for weapons and clothes. When creating a character you can set the face, gender, hair, hat, top, tattoos, pants, and shoes. All of these can be changed in the loadout menu at any point in-game. You can also modify your weapons and gear extensively. When you begin customizing a weapon, it will split into pieces, letting you select and adjust each one. This includes triggers, sights, scopes, grips, stocks, barrels, and any other attachment. You can also change the colors and designs of both weapons and gear. It really lets you play exactly the way you want to, which is always more satisfying. See More
Even though the levels are linear, the exploration aspect is done very well. You'll spend a lot of time walking through the old metro tunnels, which are filled with radiation hazards, bandits, and mutants. Sometimes you'll even have companions with you, making the trip easier with lighthearted banter. The dangerous encounters might leave you low on resources, so to survive you have to be a scavenger. Exploring even the narrowest spaces such as air vents will yield you air filters, med kits, ammunition, and other useful items. It's quite exciting to find a hidden stash of valuable goodies when you're the least expecting it. Additionally, at the end of each tunnel there is a station, which is a settlement of survivors. These stations have their own unique culture and interesting sights, giving you a moment of respite. See More
The Metro series is set in a very dark and cruel post-apocalyptic world. The living conditions are rapidly deteriorating and humanity is slowly dying out. Even despite that there are still factions that continue to wage war. This may not appeal to everyone because the bleak outlook will wear you down mentally. See More
The combat in Metro mostly comes down to shooting mutants, bandits or other survivors. Mutants will simply rush you and try to overwhelm you with their claws and teeth. Human enemies like the bandits will use tactics and try to surround you. All of this is made a lot more intense thanks to the low lighting and narrow passages. If you don't plan your movements carefully, you just might get backed into a corner. You can also use the lighting to your advantage and hide in the shadows. While most locations populated by bandits have very bright lights, you can turn off their light sources. This allows you to backstab them from the dark without raising an alarm. The same tactics won't work on mutants because they can see in the dark. See More
The Bioshock games will bring you to two rather surreal locations. First up is the city of Rapture, featured in Bioshock 1 and 2. It's a sprawling, dimly lit city hidden in the ocean, giving it a feel similar to the fabled Atlantis. There are many buildings underwater, including skyscrapers and it's surprising how calming it is to be there, even with the dark atmosphere permeating it. This is followed up by Columbia, a city in the sky you'll explore in Bioshock: Infinite. It's a collection of very colorful and bright floating islands with white clouds underneath them. The buildings are also not as tall and as imposing as those found in Rapture, giving it a sharp contrast to it. Both of these locations are a blast to explore and leave a lasting impression. See More
The Bioshock games have a Sci-Fi element to them called the Plasmids. With them your character can obtain special abilities such as shooting flames or summoning a pack of crows. These can be used to gain an advantage over your enemies in various ways. For example, you can use electricity to zap enemies standing in water or incinerate flammable objects to cause mayhem among the enemy. It feels really nice having other options beside using guns.
