DmC: Devil May Cry (definitive edition) is highly underrated and is one of my favourite dmc games. It also has some of the best level design in the whole franchise.

I play Anthem quite a bit still and think it's a pretty impressive third person shooter RPG with wonderful flight mechanics that just needs additional work on story and mission structure.

Kameo Elements of Power was a cool game with fixable weaknesses that could and should have been addressed in sequels. It should have been Microsoft's Zelda-like experience.

It fuckin sucks that it's in purgatory like most of Microsoft's game IPs.

Physical gimmicks are good for gaming.

Some of my favorite gaming moments include mastering plastic guitars and DJ mixers, waving around a wii-mote, playing with over-priced figurines, and, most recently, squeezing a pilates ring. I'm glad Nintendo at least is still willing to attempt some goofy stuff that will cause some to roll their eyes lol. I'm hopeful that the VR space will be the next frontier for physical props.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is a top tier AAA game with an involving narrative, great hit boxed based combat mechanics, and wonderful art direction. The rpg systems are great, and the mercenary system ads an interesting wrinkle to attacking strongholds and great for leveling up and item drops. The amount of content is tremendous, and the DLC is well thought out and implemented.
Agreed. AC Odyssey is absolutely one of the best open world RPG's. Not perfect, but so great! Most of the people who disagree with this are those who have made up their minds about the franchise already.

Skyward Sword is the first Zelda game I considered better than Ocarina until BOTW usurped even that. My top 3 3D Zeldas right there. I love the wiimote combat and hope that someday a remaster will perfect the movement to clean up the remaining issues.

Kid Icarus is in the conversation for the best game of last generation and is without a doubt the best reboot of all time.

A lot of mobile games are actually pretty fun.

Mass Andromeda was the correct trajectory for the series, emanating the feel of the unknown wonders of space is the right course of action. Where they fucked up was the execution. They just need to fix that and overhaul their entire damn development strategy where they have a complete vision from start to finish and not limp to finish line on top of the bodies of their team's "stress casualties".

Seriously BioWare get your shit together, you have made some the best games ever made and now your release an endless tide of mediocrity wrapped around a Kotaku article listing the chaos of your development for your last 3 games now.

Metroid Other M is a really fun game and I would rather play it over a lot of the games in the franchise. Regardless of what I (or anyone else) thinks about it's execution there were enough ideas in there that I would love to see refined and given a second shot in another game. Third person, a nimble Samus, and combat that leans more character action. I even thought moments when the camera went behind the shoulder and the game took a bit of a horror tone had a lot of potential in there too.

The driving mechanics in Grand Theft Auto IV were the absolute best in the entire franchise, and the best in the open world genre. The weight, the drift, the feel - I loved driving in Liberty City more than any other title in the series!

Ryse and Killzone Shadow Fall were far better games than they were given credit for.

Ryse in particular was a victim of the disastrous Xbox One launch. It was a “Sony game” before Sony had even made one this gen yet and deserved better.

Bulletstorm was the best FPS campaign of the last decade.

It had incredible visual design, tight levels, a rock solid story, and fantastic set pieces that never outstayed their welcome on top of fantastic gunplay that rewarded mixing things up through gameplay systems.

FF XV is one of the best FF games. Story is disjointed and pacing is scattershot, but when I think of that game I think "it had the best _____" and there are too many to ignore and continue underappreciating this game.

Duke Nukem Forever isn't that bad as the numbers tell. In a world full of Bruckheimer-ish rollercoaster rides that the FPS-genre was bursting out, DNF is a nice throwback to the good ol' days when we still had complex levels full of secrets in a lengthy single player campaign.

Dark’s Souls 2 is a favorite. Not without its quirks of course, I am really enjoying this game again after forgetting about it over the past few years. The 60fps is also a good treat on PS4 pro considering the typical 30fps of FROM’s other games.

COD Infinite Warfare is one of the most complete and fun COD experiences, and has the best zombies mode map in the whole franchise.

Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is the best Elder Scrolls game

Modded Oblivion is the best WRPG ever (ok my mind is telling me no on that one but my body is telling me yes)
