Elden Ring

An enormous, exciting new take on the Dark Souls formula from a studio that's peerless in the branch of the action RPG genre it established.

Review score: (90%)


A somber yet funny point-and-click adventure game set in a sci-fi dystopia known as South Louisiana. "A must-play for anyone interested in narrative-driven games," we said in our review.

Review score: (94%)


The charming style of a classic Zelda game, but with sharper teeth: "difficult combat and meaningful exploration make Tunic a retro-inspired modern marvel," our reviewer said.

Review score: (86%)

Lost Ark

The hot new thing on Steam: A free-to-play Korean MMO that just got a wide release. Our reviewer Rick praised "the stunning combat and astonishing sense of scale."

Review score: (78%)

Total War: Warhammer 3

We loved TTW3 when we reviewed it. "It goes in some strange directions, but always goes big, fully committing to Warhammer's wonderfully over-the-top brand of fantasy."

Review score: (90%)

Hunt Showdown

Hunt: Showdown has quietly become one of the PC's best multiplayer games. Along with Escape from Tarkov, we think it's the best evolution of the battle royale genre.

Review score: (74%)


A challenging singleplayer brawler from the creators of Absolver. The structure is strange but compelling, and the dreamlike world is somewhat shallow, but looks spectacular.

Review score: (85%)


Like everyone else, we've been starting our mornings with the word game phenomenon that NYT spent over a million bucks to own.

Review score: (85%)

Final Fantasy 14: Endwalker

A 10-year-long story culminates in this enormous expansion for one of the best MMOs around; we called it "a fantastic send-off" which "leaves the door wide open for new adventures."

Review score: (89%)

God of War

The former PlayStation exclusive about parenting and god drama is now on PC, and it's the best version of a fantastic game.

Review score: (90%)
