"The on-field baseball sim is livelier than ever, and player development, attributes, and free agency gives you some real managerial decisions to make both on the field, over the course of a season, and even during the off-season." —Christopher Livingston

Super Mega Baseball 3

Score: 90% 

"Valorant is the more accessible Counter-Strike I didn't know I wanted. Abilities add an intoxicating dynamism to every round and expand the scope of teamwork for this style of FPS." —Morgan Park


Score: 90% 

"I can't remember the last time a game swallowed my brain whole the way Factorio does... It's the best managment game I've played for ages, a manufacturing masterpiece." —Rick Lane


Score: 91% 

"Frictional's ability to marry deeply personal, relatable fears with cosmic horror is nearly unparalleled in games... Rebirth deserves to go down as one of the most effective and mind-bending horror games ever made, just like its predecessor." —Leana Hafer

Amnesia: Rebirth

Score: 91% 

"Sets a new standard for investigative gameplay... The neon sheen, fantastic soundtrack, quirky characters, and narrative twists make it one of the best whodunits you can play." —Funké Joseph

Paradise Killer

Score: 91% 

"Sandwiched between the events of Half-Life 1 and Half-Life 2, the repercussions of its story extend well into whatever future there is for the Half-Life series. Its technical accomplishments will leave other developers, once again, struggling to keep up." —Christopher Livingston

Half-Life: Alyx

Score: 92% 

"My favorite Assassin's Creed, which is saying something considering it's a series that spans 23 games. It builds on the already excellent RPG foundations laid by Origins and Odyssey, but with meaningful improvements. —Steven Messner

Assassin's Creed: Valhalla

Score: 92% 

"An irrepressible story engine that spits out a constant stream of compelling alt-histories, delightfully infuriating characters and social puzzles that I've become obsessed with unravelling." —Fraser Brown

Crusader Kings 3

Score: 94% 

"The moment to moment combat is distilled panic rather than empowerment. I live for the fleeting moments my head gets above water within the hurricane of light and noise and extravagant violence..." —James Davenport

Doom Eternal

Score: 94%
