JAMES O’CON­NOR PUBG

I have only played a few rounds of PUBG my­self (and I was tempted to vote for Destiny 2, de­spite know­ing in my heart that it was the wrong choice), but just as sig­nif­i­cantly, it’s one of the very few games that I en­joy watch­ing. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the drama of some­one’s tragic de­feat, or another player’s stun­ning vic­tory, and all the glitches and stuff-ups along the way ac­tu­ally made the whole thing more com­pelling.

ADAM RORKE PREY

Prey is so good it felt like the Half-Life game we never got. Its set­ting com­pletely sucked you in and kept you go­ing un­til the very end whilst car­ry­ing all the char­ac­ter­is­tics of a great game!

KOSTA ANDREADIS WOLFENSTEIN II: THE NEW COLOS­SUS

In the year 2017 the act of shoot­ing Nazis in an over-thetop set­ting was not only fun, but cathar­tic. Thank­fully, Wolfenstein II also has a great story and bril­liant set pieces.

DANIEL WILKS WOLFENSTEIN II: THE NEW COLOS­SUS

The New Colos­sus is ev­ery bit as good as The New Or­der and The Old Blood, and in its will­ing­ness to go rad­i­cally over the top it tran­scends the games that came be­fore. The me­chan­ics are tight, the guns are great and the set­pieces are ex­cel­lent. It’s just a joy to play

DAVID WILDGOOSE SU­PER HYDORAH

Akin to a spir­i­tual suc­ces­sor to Gra­dius III, this is an im­pec­ca­bly de­signed hor­i­zon­tally scrolling shoot ‘em up that pays re­spect to the genre clas­sics some 25 years later with­out slip­ping into pas­tiche.
