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.
