Sony PlayStation 4 Pro
The PS4 Pro delivers 4K gaming and increased power and performance compared to the base PS4. The games feature high visual fidelity with the extra processing power. PSVR also benefits from extra horsepower.

It’s a solid successor to the Rift, but we only wish it were wireless.
Oculus Quest is a self-contained VR system that doesn’t require a PC or cables tethered to a PC and you can even walk around. While there have been other self-contained systems, this is the best yet. The controllers feature touch controls and vibrations to immerse you in the action. Just don’t expect bleeding-edge graphics with the mobile chip. The controls feel fluid and are the best part of Quest. What’s great is that you’ll be able to play many of the hits from the Rift, but you’re restricted to a curated list of apps. This is the best mobile VR experience yet. While this is not the final step in VR, at this price point, it’s a bargain.
The Oculus Go is the most convenient and comfortable VR headset ever made. It’s mainstream VR because it’s dead simple to use and eliminates the bulk and cables. Think of it as a self-contained version of the Gear VR. Choose from 32 or 64GB of storage. The more memory, the more entertainment you can take with you. Before using the Go, you have to pair it with an iOS or Android phone to connect it to your Wi-Fi. The biggest surprise is how easy it is to use and comfortable it is to wear. Expect around 2.5 hours of battery life with video and roughly 2 hours for games. With a low starting price point, it’s the easiest way for most people to jump into VR.

While not a completely new Zelda game, Zelda: Link’s Awakening is a 2D reimagining of the classic Game Boy Zelda game. It features a top-down 2D perspective and traditional Zelda gameplay and retains the classic feel and personality of the original. The revamped cartoony graphical style looks absolutely gorgoeus. While it remains faithful to the original, one of the coolest new features is the Dungeon Builder. It allows you to create your own dungeons and play them. What’s cool? You can configure them in different ways and they actually feel quite different, depending on how they are configured. Other cool new additions include Mario character cameos and side-scrolling dungeons. The game will feature 8 dungeons, monsters, and traps to overcome. Can you find the 8 instruments of the Sirens and awaken the Wind Fish? It’s one of those gems you don’t want to miss.

The new Battle Mode multiplayer experience is unlike anything you’ve played before — it’s strategic, competitive, and fun.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood offers a bigger experience than prior games in the series. Fans get more weapons, more epic Nazis to kill, and you can customize your play style. The coolest part? Now you can even kill Nazis with a friend in co-op mode. The game doesn’t change if you don’t have a partner – you can also play with the AI.
Borderlands 3Rated M
While Borderlands 3 doesn’t reinvent the franchise, the game plays similar to Borderlands 2 and it’s the biggest game in the series to date. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s packed with new weapons, new locations, a host of new characters, and several new ways to play. The gunplay is super satisfying and the storyline is chock full of humor.

There will be multiple endings to experience.

Astral Chain is Platinum Games’ newest exclusive IP for Nintendo Switch. It’s like a cross between Bayonetta and Nier: Automata with a variety of gameplay styles and highly stylized visuals.

What’s cool? You can even control two different characters simultaneously or play with a friend.

Assemble your alliance and thwart Thanos’ plans.
Crash Team Racing: Nitro FueledRated E
Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled rebuilds this classic kart racer from the ground-up and showcases how a retro title should be done. The graphics have been given a modern makeover – vastly improving on the original. They’re amped to the max and the game runs fast and silky-smooth. Unlike Crash Trilogy, this game feels like more than just a simple graphical upgrade. Boosting is what differentiates this game from Mario Kart. You’ll have to know when to start and finish a power slide, which enables the use of a triple-boost system — requiring precise timing. As you power slide through turns, your gauge fills. Pressing a shoulder button at the right time allows you to boost and successive boosts feature shorter time gaps. With the triple-boost, you could blast from the back of the pack to the front. The game features typical power-ups: shields, rockets, speed boosts, invincibility, and a Mario Kart-inspired blue shell-like item. Although it isn’t required to win races, a fun twist is that you can upgrade these power-ups by collecting fruits. The game features 18 race tracks, adventure, time trial, split-screen versus, and a new online mode. The best part? We love that they’ve managed to retain the feel of the original while upgrading it with new features for modern gamers.

Luigi’s Mansion 3 heads to a haunted hotel with multiple levels of fun with a variety of themes. Luigi’s latest game introduces a slew of new Poltergust upgrades like the slam function, suction shot, and burst to help you on your adventure. We love the freedom you now have to freely explore the levels. Gooigi, a Luigi made of goo, is back and allows you to slip through metal fences and walk on spikes. There’s even co-op, 8-player multiplayer, and a mode where you have to defeat all ghosts before time runs out. Expect a ton of traps and mysteries to unravel.
Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancerRated E
Cadence of Hyrule is the best Zelda spinoff not made by Nintendo. It’s a fresh and interesting take on Zelda with rhythm-based movement and combat. The world of Hyrule is randomly generated. With the rhythm component, every fight becomes a puzzle. What’s cool? You can choose to play as either Link or Zelda. We love that it really nails the exploration, discovery, and leveling up your powers like the best Zelda games.
Death StrandingRated RP
From legendary game designer Hideo Kojima, Death Stranding creates a totally brand new genre called action game/strand game. It has elements of shooting, stealth, and even asynchronous multiplayer. The narrative will play a huge part in driving the story forward. The game features an all-star cast with Norman Reedus and Lindsay Wagner. Killing or dying have a consequence in the game and is thematically built into the game. Expect an open-world action game with a lot of freedom. Can you save everyone from the brink of extinction?
Control is a great supernatural third-person action-adventure game from Remedy. It’s like Max Payne meets Alan Wake. It’s packed with a mysterious, compelling sci-fi narrative and paranormal action. As your progress through the campaign, your character’s abilities can be upgraded. After a slight learning curve, it becomes a playground for destructive experimentation. It’s an open-ended sandbox experience you’re sure to love.
Shenmue IIIRated T
The Shenmue saga continues with Shenmue III from legendary creator Yu Suzuki. While it’s no longer a Triple-A title and has a limited budget, it still has ambition and tries to make it all work. The visuals get a more stylized look rather than the hyper-realistic visuals of past games. The game will feature over 500 NPCs and typical Shenmue interactions. Shops in the world feature more items than before. This version feels more like a proper RPG with leveling up moves. You’ll have to beat the game by a time limit as in previous games. Embark on a journey to avenge your father’s death. While it’s a bit rough around the edges and not as groundbreaking as the original, most fans will still enjoy this latest outing.
Super Smash Bros. UltimateRated E10+
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate feels like a museum designed to celebrate itself. The game boasts every playable character in the series’ history plus a couple new ones for over 65 characters in its roster. Ridley will finally make his way into the game after popular demand and even Snake will be making a return. There will be a mix of old and new levels. Featuring perfect shields, a short hop, and the return of directional air dodges, it’s aiming to be a robust competitive experience. Fans can expect a faster, more technical game than ever.
New Super Mario Bros U DeluxeRated E
While New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe still has much of its Mario magic, it feels less important given the Switch is overflowing with high quality 2D platformers. Toadette is now a playable character with more precise controls than Mario and Luigi. The game also includes the Super Luigi U expansion. Despite these additions, the game fails to standout in a crowded market. There’s not enough here to make it a must-have for fans, but it’s still a fun adventure worth playing.
Red Dead Redemption 2Rated M
Red Dead Redemption 2 is an open-world, narrative-driven experience. It’s a prequel set 12 years before the first game. There will be several different versions of the game: Standard, Special, and Ultimate and PlayStation gamers will receive exclusive bonus content not offered on Xbox. The first game featured a multiplayer mode, and this could be the key to keeping players hooked on the game in a similar vein as GTA V. With intense violence, strong language, nudity, strong sexual content, and use of drugs, you decide if he should play.
Marvel Spider-ManRated T
Imagine becoming the emodiment of Spider-Man and swinging through New York City as your friendly neighborhood superhero. That’s exactly what Insomniac has delivered with Marvel Spider-Man, exclusive to the PS4. The best part? They’ve nailed the swinging mechanics and it feels so fun to traverse through this open world. The combat feels like Arkham but in a Spidey way. The game features an intriguing, original story, plenty of villains, and more so you bet it will be action-packed and a whole lot of fun to play. Think of it as playing an interactive Spider-Man movie. How cool is that?!
Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu / EeveeRated E
Set to debut this holiday season, Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee are the first Pokemon games for Switch. Fans will instantly recognize some of their familiar worlds brought to life in 3D. The game allows you to use simple motion controls to capture Pokemon. It retains the classic battling system with a cool leveling system. Are you ready to catch ’em all?!

Minecraft took over the world by showing us that the idea of Legos could be fun in the virtual world. Today, thousands of people play the game. The game teaches teens to use their creativity as they build whatever is in their mind. The game can now be found on just about every gaming device.
Seikiro: Shadows Die TwiceRated M
Sekiro is a stealth-based action experience born from the DNA of Dark Souls and Bloodbourne while retaining its difficulty. It’s a game requiring skill to master with a steep learning curve. This is not a game for the faint of heart. You will die a lot. But once you get over that curve, battles become more rewarding. The levels and combat are excellent. There’s a great sense of freedom moving through these worlds. The game throws a variety of enemies your way. Look for a staggering amount of abilities to unlock. This game emphasizes precision and skill in its combat. It’s an amazing twist on familiar ideas that stands on its own.
God of WarRated M
God of War is a nonstop whirlwind of emotions and bloody action. It’s a masterful composition of exceptional interlocking parts. Its design pays off in unexpected ways in both the gameplay and storyline. Kratos has been thoughtfully reimagined. Most notably, there are a couple stellar boss fights that do a fantastic job of showcasing Kratos’s God-level strength.
