Hades

Hades is a rouge-like game with a lot of replayability as this is how the game progresses. You are Zagreus, the son of Hades who wants to escape the dominion of Underworld. The gods of Olympus wants you to be with them so they help you by giving blessings through your run. If you die, you start at the beginning and the world's map changes a little bit each time, which is meant to keep the people there from escaping. There are 5 worlds, with 4 bosses battles and 1 very good boy. The best part of the game are the characters and conversation. After beating the game for the first time after so many tries, I found out I have to do the same thing 10 more times to get the proper ending and 5-6 times more to get the final ending which is worth it but the game becomes progressively difficult. I was getting tired and just put up a mod and tried all the new blessings and beat the game which felt more fun. Do check out the comics and memes of the game on the net and reddit, they are hilarious.

Lost Words: Beyond the Page is an amazing side-scroller adventure that portrays a beautifully written story through the eyes of child's perspective. The gameplay is simple but the story is something that will stick around with you. The game displays the rollercoaster ride of joy, loss and regret a child goes through while growing up and how she overcome and accept things in life by using her imagination.

The story revolves around a girl living her past and jumping obstacles in a shadow realm. You control the object in the environment to help the girl reach the end to watch a cutscene. Concept-wise its good but gets quite irritating when you have to restart if you miss it by a mm. I am glad the dev gave a skip option for the level since some levels are buggy and infuriating.

The entire game and storyline can be summed up with 2 lines,

"I am not your errand boy..." ~Death

*rides off to do errands for everyone else that asks*

This game is set after the events of the first game. You play as the second horseman, Death. He is the leader and the most powerful Horseman among the four. He is on a self-imposed quest to clear his brother's name for bringing Apocalypse in the first game. Death relates to the average player who plays Darksider, Attack First, Questions Later. Its quite a long adventure and mostly the badass protagonist who seemed OP in the game trailer is nerfed. There are countless dungeons and the map is divided into four regions which are quite huge as well. The worst part is the countless weapons you get on your way and it becomes useless very quickly.

Tip - Just keep the Possessed weapons and recycle all the weapons and feed them to the Possessed weapon. Don't sell anything for coins and don't buy stuff, you get better stuff along the way, and Vulgrims chests are quite useless so don't waste your time collecting the coins.

This is one of the best Action-Adventure games I have played in a long time. The game is a mashup of different kinds of popular games but is done very well while keeping its lore interesting. This story revolves around an End-War between Heaven, Hell, and Mankind which is basically the Apocalypse. The Horseman are tasked to maintain the balance and act as intermediatory between the three factions. The war is supposed to start when Mankind is equally as strong as the Demons of Hell & Angels of Heaven but the war is started prematurely and leaves Earth in ruins, with most humans dead. You are War, the fourth and youngest Horseman who is tasked to find who started the war and got you into this mess. The game is kind of Dungeon based Open World and is fun as well as frustrating at times while exploring. There are limited weapons that keep the game grounded with smooth combat and fluid animations. The lore is quite interesting and keeps you guessing throughout the journey. There is a lot of content and great character moments that you even get to meet in the successive games in the franchise.

This is a vast beautiful RPG-driven open-world game. Every action opens a new timeline and brings you to one of the nine endings this game has to offer. Every state is somewhat different from the other but the beauty of old Greece is a sight to behold. You play as either Kassandra or Alexios. I prefer Kassandra as she is considered canon and has better voice acting. You are a mercenary and though you are a Spartan by birth, you fight for any side you prefer. The battle for states is just a grinding mechanism where there is no change to the state whoever wins except for the color of the flag. You cannot make Sparta win all the states as the AI takes back the other states so that no side becomes dominant. There is a metric ton of loot and gears that become obsolete very quickly in the game. There are a lot of skills and only a few you will ever use. The nemesis system was copied from the Mordor games but its bogus. The spartan kick is the OP skill and must have, it opens a lot of opportunity in battle from recruiting enemies to throwing them down the cliff. The campaign is quite boring as there are no sequences for killing cult members and they die like any other NPC but the characters and music in the game are on point.

Tip - Don't kill the bounty hunters or the cult members, instead drain their health and use your fist or the spartan kick for the final blow. When they are unconscious, you can recruit them for your ship's crew which gives you an edge in the naval battles.

Den defense, a form of tower defense introduced in the game which is a fun mini-game that allows you to defend your bases scattered throughout the region. Fans of the Ezio trilogy would undoubtedly cry at the game's conclusion. Ezio was such a beloved child of Ubisoft that they started the game with his birth and even went out of their way to create a 30 min animated clip portraying his death and laying one of the greatest character to rest.

This is the best game in the Ezio trilogy. The freestyle counter combat makes you feel like a true master assassin as you take down an army of enemies alone. You play as charming and everyone's favorite Ezio. The game takes place in Rome during the Renaissance. The map is huge with tons of content and missions and very little repetitiveness. The music is stunning and changes according to the location you are in the city. Playing this game makes you feel like you are actually living in Rome, the crowd is reactive and the game captures the essence and landmarks of the city beautifully. The game is filled to the brim with guild missions and assassination contracts. The flashback missions set in Florence show what happened to the love story of Ezio and Christina which is a tear-jerker. You can now recruit people and make them Assassins by sending them on missions or calling them for help whenever needed. Leonardo has 5 missions on destroying war machines that are like super-weapons for that era, these missions are tough and you need to plan your way into compounds without getting noticed. I have played this game thrice and yet I never have enough of this game. I actually passed my History exam on Renaissance by playing this game as you meet all the famous characters of that era.

The disarm and counter animation adds more depth to the combat and make you feel like a true assassin. There are loads of weapons in your arsenal which lets you try different playstyles and approach each target differently. Shops are introduced in this game so going on treasure hunting and pick-pocketing makes more sense.

This is the game that gave birth to the Assassin's Creed franchise and killed the Prince of Persia franchise. The unique thing about the game was that it brought parkour to an open world but not as polished as the Prince of Persia games. The holy land was a boiling point of cultures and religion which was depicted very well in the game. The mix of action and exploration in the three cities was fascinating. The game was very repetitive and grinding was required to progress in missions. It was the era when Ubisoft was more focused on delivering a historically accurate simulator rather than chipping in MTX or DLC's, they even went on to remove the crossbow weapon from the game to be historically accurate.

This is an isometric game. I do not like these types of games but I liked this game a lot and am willing to try more of these. The dynamic between the two characters War & Strife is great. Strife is witty and carries great comebacks and jokes with him while War is serious and duty-bound making the unlikely Duo great together. The character building is very well done with some heartfelt moments as they both cope with the guilt of their past. The combat system is great with multiple types of combos and weapons. The game can be played in Co-op as well with split-screen. The game is not very well polished as you will get stuck in some walls and puzzles. The boss-battles are difficult and rewarding. The worst thing about the game is that it doesn't have a pointer on the map and you have to guess where you actually are on the map which makes collecting collectibles irritating. Some parts of the maps are closed and need to be replayed again after getting a certain weapon which is unlocked later on in the game which I dislike.

This game is a joke to its prequel. This is an Open World game set in San Fransisco showing how everything is controlled by our Corporate Overlords. The game hints at FAANG with made-up similar names. The game is trying to be young and hip that it totally forgets the seriousness of the dark and grim dystopia the game is really about. The side quests are boring and the world is too bright for a dystopian future. The protagonist Marcus has no back-story, the CtOS 2.0 saw him as a potential criminal in the future, and to prove he isn't, he actually became one LOL. Its hard to feel like you are the good guy when you just run over people, destroy shit, hack cars and bank accounts of people, dance near a blown-up manhole and take selfies after swatting some innocent bystander. The Dedsec video cutscenes are great and funny as they are made up of tons of old memes. The building up to the end is boring with only a few times in which you care what's actually going on.

The story is not the strong suit of the game as it is based on revenge for your family but the real deal is hacking in an open world environment. The whole city is connected to an Operating System called CtOS. You play as a hacker who can hack into any security camera, phone, and a lot of stuff. The funniest thing is hacking some poor blokes bank account while walking on the street and after a few seconds when they realize their bank is hacked, they cuss and lose their temper which is hilarious. The ATM side missions are the most hilarious. Every human has a different name and you can get their brief details which makes you realize how much information we give away for free to the internet.

Joseph Seed and his family are one hell of an antagonist. They are scary psychopaths with their own drive and motivation to get what they want.
