EditGravity Rush 2

From IGN's Gravity Rush 2 Review: After a couple of story hiccups, Gravity Rush 2 rights itself and pulls you in with the personality of its world and wide variety of activities. The new gravity powers and styles make combat exciting, and well-written side quests and character relationships grant better insight into Kats universe.

EditHellblade: Senuas Sacrifice

From IGN's Hellblade: Senuas Sacrifice Review: Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is a masterclass of atmosphere, storytelling, and the marriage of mechanical and conceptual design. While there are moments that feel shoehorned in to remind us were playing a videogame, the care and attention Ninja Theory has clearly poured into Senua and her story has created something amazing. This is a game everyone should play.

EditHorizon Zero Dawn

From IGN's Horizon Zero Dawn Review: Across a vast and beautiful open world, Horizon Zero Dawn juggles many moving parts with polish and finesse. Its main activity - combat - is extremely satisfying thanks to the varied design and behaviors of machine-creatures that roam its lands, each of which needs to be taken down with careful consideration. Though side questing could have been more imaginative, its missions are compelling thanks to a central mystery that led me down a deep rabbit hole to a genuinely surprising - and moving - conclusion.

EditNier: Automata

From IGN's Nier: Automata Review: After trading fisticuffs with a Transformer, cartwheeling around a bullet-spewing tank controlled by evil clowns, and using a moose to buck my way through killer robots, its safe to say that there are very few gamesif anyquite like Nier: Automata. At different times its a hack-and-slash, an RPG, a shoot-em-up, a brawler, and even a text adventure. But no matter which style it is at any given moment, this dazzling hybrid delivers 30-plus hours of fantastically fun action, remarkable locations, and a story so weird I doubt Ill forget it anytime soon.

EditNioh

From IGN's Nioh Review: Nioh could well take over 100 hours if you set out to master its many side missions on top of its tough campaign, but its a challenge well worth taking. The way it builds on its most obvious inspirations with a highly refined combat system and an unexpectedly charming, yet gritty style all its own allows it to boldly carve out its own identity, standing as a shining example of what action RPGs can be.
