Only Reason I Want a Switch: Mario+Rabbids Kingdom Battle

 

Games I Wish I Wanted to Play (but don’t)

Nier: Automata

South Park: The Fractured But Whole

Heat Signature

Dead Cells

 

Game I would like to watch a Let’s Play of

Cuphead

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice

 

Game of the Year

Hollow Knight

It's beautiful, visually and musically. The controls are sharp and responsive. The gameplay is compelling (dark souls + metroidvania). It's a larger game (50 hours) than I care to play these days, and yet I was fully engaged till the finish line. It is a labour of love made by an independent team, with only three core creators.

And it is an absolute steal at $15 full price, less on sale.
