Join us as we bid adieu to 2020. What a year. Yep. But thankfully it brought about some great games, such as the ones we’ve been talking about this week on Gaming Fyx!! This …
The Legend of Zelda series rates amongst my favorites in all of games. The worlds are beautiful, weird, and full of surprises. So, naturally, I was excited for the announcement and release of Link’s Awakening, a game which first released just over a month before I was born. After playing it, I’m starting to think that Link’s Awakening would have been better left in the past, recounted only in stories of how weird it is.
Spirit of the North may have its fair share of flaws, but is ultimately a success in spite of them. It’s a feel-good puzzle game which will leave you with feelings of whimsy, wonder, and warmth. If you enjoyed Journey, it is a fairly easy recommendation – though its price point may warrant hesitation for some. In the end it won me over, and will be a game I’ll revisit when I need a warm hug from an old friend.
Control is a game that really fired on all cylinders for me. I’ve grown tired of the narrative space that so many third-person action games operate in, but this is a world and story I just want more of. By combining that with combat that encouraged me to fight aggressively and strategically, Control shot to the top of my favorite games of 2019. I feel this is Remedy’s best work, and some of the best weird fiction ever produced in games.
